Rome, the Eternal City

Dr. Srutimala Duara

Boarding the fast Eurostar at 11:54 a.m. from Naples we reached Rome at 1:00 p.m. and thought that we would be right in the city and so take a walk soon after reaching our hotel to have a feel of the place. But when we showed our hotel address, we found that Monterotondo is a place about 20 km away from the city of Rome. We bargained with a taxi and finally got a man who agreed to take us for 50 Euro. The others had charged 120 Euro! We were taken to our ‘La Petit Hotel’.
