My wife and I had a wonderful time traveling with the Vatican Observatory Foundation and several of the Jesuit astronomers that work there.
Our hotel in Rome, the Grand Hotel de la Minerve was conveniently located across from the Pantheon and within walking distance of Trevi Fountain and Bernini's Four Rivers fountain in the Piazza Navona (site of a scene in Tom Hanks' Angels and Demons).
This hotel had a fantastic breakfast European style buffet with lifesaving cappuchino. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The lobby was beautiful, as was the bar and restaurant with great views.
