B&B Saxa Rubra in Rome- Italy

September 9th, 2008 by Mariah

The Following Review has just been left for a Bed and Breakfast located in Rome left on TheInnkeeper.com Bed and Breakfast Guide. Rome is really a wonderful city and the B&B Saxa Rubra is a special place in Rome. It is the house of the dreams.It seems the house of the fables.My wife and I have had a very beautiful vacation: 7 days to be remembered.We have celebrated our anniversary of marriage and we have chosen the ideal place. We didn’t want a hotel but a house in Rome among the people of this very beautiful and romantic city.The B&B has taken the name from the historical place where it is found.Saxa Rubra is the name given by the Romans to the red tufa rocks which can be seen on Via Flaminia north to Rome. According to some studies the name Saxa Rubra was already mentioned in operas written by Livio, Tacito and Cicerone. It is said that the red colour of the rocks derives from the blood shedded by the soldiers in the battle of Constantin and Massenzio.The station of the subway is alone 40 meters away from the house and in alone 15 minutes it is possible comfortably reaches Piazza del Popolo. This is one of the most important square in Rome and to few footsteps there is Piazza di Spagna and continuing Piazza Venezia.The apartment is very romantic. We will always remember our beautiful evenings in the living room next to the fireplace turned on with a glass of very good red wine.The staff was always kind, careful to our necessities and ready to help us.The room is furnished of bathrobes, towels, hair dryer, liquid soaps for hands, shower, hair.In the room there is a small refrigerator.There is air conditioning in each environment of the house.Believe me… after having walked so much to visit monuments, museums and so many small characteristic streets of the city… it is very pleasant to return home, to find a fresh environment and to relax in the living room, calm with a beautiful glass of good wine and delicious snacks offered by the lovely owner.We will speak of this place to our friends and we hope to be able to return soon.It is remained in our heart.Many thanks for the lovely time !David Mayer
