4 ROME TIPS


After using "Rolling in Rome" article as her guide, Ann Bevan Hollos sent kudos to article writers,
Howard Chabner and Michelle De Sha . Hollos also shared a few of her own access tips on Rome.
She writes:

I went to Rome at the end of March and used the Rolling in Rome article like a bible. We stayed at Hotel
Ponte Sisto
. I noticed the Barberini Palace isn't in Rolling in Rome. If for some reason
you haven't gone, I think you'd enjoy it on your next trip to Rome.

Here is what I wrote about it on tripadvisor:

We came upon this beautiful mansion turned museum after lunch at the awesome restaurant
Colline Emiliane. We went in on a whim because it was free (all museums in Rome are free to people
with disabilities and their companion; I use a wheelchair). We breezed through the many floors using the
elevator. As other reviewers mentioned, the grand room is amazing. It's lovely to see beautiful art in a
beautiful setting. There is a garden, but I didn't see it because it's up a ramp with stairs. Even the front
drive/entrance is peaceful with a small green space ad a fountain in the driveway.
