On One Of All Those Roads That Lead To Rome...

Sometimes, in the late afternoon at "Albergo Il Postiglione" you might find a charming old lady resting in a chair facing a large window at the very end of the first floor corridor. The owner? You might think, because you would see her again later in the evening at the entrance of the terrace restaurant. Friendly, but kind of absent minded watching the guests arriving.

The restaurant of "Il Postiglione" is an attraction not only for the hotel guests but obviously also for people of nearby Rome, staying in their holiday homes for the weekend; having enjoyed a three course dinner, you will understand that without any doubt.

I had fried Porcini, then Tortelli filled with delicious Mozzarella and fresh Tomatoes and shared fried Zucchini with my husband who then went for the marvellous Zuppa Inglese.

As it was hot that day as it can be in Lazio in July, we spent our day at a Hollywoodesque shaped pool. Our dachshound was welcomed as were playing children teased by the staff and a group of Junge Römer jumping, swimming, sunbathing.

You might use "Il Postiglione" as a stopover - as Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once did but we think it is the perfect hotel if you want to visit Rome; take the offered taxi service and within less than thirty minutes you will find yourself throwing coins into the Fontana di Trevi. Stay for a shopping tour or some more sightseeing, then go back by the Hotel´s car to spend the following day in peace and quiet. Then go back for some more museums.

I would recommend late September or even October for a stay at "Il Postiglione". Just check the weather forecast and go, the Fiumicino airport is not that far away.

But even better: Get inspired by Goethe and take the Grand Tour through Italy. An original part of the former Via Cassia within the large landscaped park might remind you that travelling is about the journey and not the arrival.
