I'm planning a trip at the end of November for our annual anniversary getaway, but rather than the usual two week full on trip, I'm keeping it more of a long weekend due to work commitments. We've got the 23rd to the 26th of November inclusive booked for the trip.
I am planning on visiting Rome/Vatican in Italy - its the only place in Europe I have on my "To Visit" list. (The next item down is Hong Kong, perhaps next year...)
I would be greatful for any pointers from anyone who has been to Rome - any particular area to stay and visit (or avoid)?
Did you fly there with BA/Virgin or on the cheap?
Where is the best (+reasonable) hotel near the Vatican/Colosseum and/or other sites to visit? (we don't want a hotel out in the sticks, where any cost saving is eaten up by taxis/transport fares...)
I've got a bit of time, so you peoples can help me shape the itinerary!
