    Great space for exhibitions with white walls and high ceiling. Really loved the atmosphere and Metropoli the photo exhibition on the 1st floor.

    A well-deserved standing ovation ended this hour-long performance of opera arias by an extremely accomplished string quartet and two singers. I recognized only three or four selections, but the music was glorious. Very comfortable theater seating, air conditioned, full bar in collegial reception room. A highlight of my 12-day visit.

    Very small but stunningly beautiful library. Visitors welcome but access to books and seating is limited. Staff very accommodating the day I was there. I stayed for about an hour and felt privileged to do so. A real pleasure.

    Beautiful library that is open to the public. What I found interesting is that residents can check out most of these books which are hundreds of years old. The globes are cool on how people envisioned what the earth looked like. Worth a half hour visit.

    If you're in the area, this little café / bookshop is well worth a visit. It's an incredibly relaxing place to spend an hour sipping at a coffee whilst perusing the small but very well-chosen selection of books.

    Was nice to see where Goethe lived during his Italienreise. In the museum there were some drawers visitors could open to read background information and citations. Even more information about the time he was living in would have been great though.

    Almost 300 years worth of 35,000 volumes have been compiled here. It is primarily a research and study library and not so much a tourist spot. The subjects cover history, archeology, architecture, and art history. As the library is temporarily closed, there was no access to the third floor museum.

    Although it may be interesting but, if time is limited, I'd recommend moving this stop much further down the list of priorities.

    There are few places in the world that has truly taken my breath away. Borromini created an absolute masterpiece. Upon entering the modest doorway to the left of the entrance to the neighbouring church, indiscrete signs led me to the second floor to the library. Passing through the linen curtains and climbing an elegant flight of granite stairs, I found myself on the other side of an ancient wooden doorway. Entering quietly, I politely introduced myself to a team of four working diligently. I whisper that it is my first time at the library and after a few murmurs amongst themselves, a lovely woman named Chiara asked me to follow her. Doing so, she led me through a beautiful doorway and into the magical world that which is Borromini’s library. Stunning. The space is open to the public, however check the website for hours. They were preparing for an exposition so I made my visit short, but the ten minutes that I spent there has left a profound effect. I was transported to another time. Even after living in the Eternal City for five years, I had no idea that this exquisite space was in between my home and my office. Thank you Chiara for taking the time to show me around and to talk with me about the history!!!!! You made my day!

    I attended the IBA (International Bar Association) Annual Conference from 7 to 12 October at the newly completed Roma Convention Center La Nuvola.
    The Roma Convention Center was so new that the construction fence was still in place around it.
    In contrast to its plain glass wall facade, inside on the auditorium levels the structure is sinuous and has a 'wow' factor. The many levels are connected with adequate numbers of escalators, and the exhibition level is vast. There is room for many thousands of delegates, exhibition stands, lunch serving and seating areas.
    Down below, on the bottom level the 20 plus presentation rooms are large and small, depending on requirements, and the sound systems and projection systems work well. The wifi works well throughout the building.
    See photos.
    So what's the missing practicality? First, inadequate toilets on the exhibition level, the poor connectivity between the exhibition level and the presentation rooms (10 minutes walk) and the inadequate size of the auditorium (maximum 1,800).
    Transport connectivity to and from the Convention Center is poor - true there is the Laurentina Metro Station 5 minutes walk away, but unless your hotel is on that line, your options are limited. There are not enough taxis. And the buses hired for the convention took up to an hour to travel to the hotels at Via Veneto, the designated conference hotels, due to heavy traffic. Hotels closer to the Convention Centre were hampered by a lack of taxis, and no public transport. Work on the half completed high rise hotel next to the centre has stopped - only the shell has been built.
    My advice? Conference organisers of large conferences such as the IBA with 6,000 delegates have little choice but to use the Convention Centre in Rome. But they must do better for transport. And delegates? Choose a hotel near the Metro B Line which goes to Laurentina.

    Ran across this on the way to Trastevere via the old Jewish Ghetto. The twin buildings were palaces with a middle courtyard. The architecture is impressive and the statuary and decoration very very interesting.

    It is located next to the church of San Luigi dei Francesi, in the heart of the historic center of Rome, a stone's throw from Piazza Navona and the Pantheon, next to the Saint-Louis de France Cultural Centre.
    It is lovely, we spent half an hour browsing around, through the shelves and catalogues.
    There was a book presentation and the bookstore was almost packed.
    There were many Italians and also some visitors and foreigners.
    It is like a meeting place between French and Italian culture.
    We had few words with the owners too.
    There are around wenty-five thousand books of a very varied subjects and topics: literature, human sciences, figurative arts, theology, teaching of the French language ... without forgetting children's books, comics, paperbacks, but also DVDs and games for children.
    Very friendly people and most of the books for sale in the bookstore have the same price that they would have if sold in France.
    Go and have a look.
    It is worth it.
    Recommended.
