Le Due Maria - our B&B in Rome

View Devin & Erin in the Mediterranean on Erin.Devin's travel map.

Well - this a complicated entry. Our stay here has been a little weird to say the least. It is a Bed and Breakfast with not so much breakfast - more like, I left food around - make it yourself. Which would probably not be note worthy, if Maria herself wasn't so special. For the first week, we had no idea when she would actually be here so every time we heard the smallest noise we thought it was her. There are also a lot of Catholics around here so we weren't so sure what she would think (or feel about us). Then when she finally came home one night and we were here - she started flipping out on us about a bunch of stuff that only added up to a lot of mis-communicating. Her English isn't great and our Italian is non-existent so that made for an interesting argument/conversation. It all ended fine but in our final analysis - she has a screw loose. It has certainly been an interesting experience. She also forgot to mention the major construction happening across the street (also outside of our window). So we spent many a morning serenaded by jack hammers. It is quite hysterical when you step back and take it all in (I think all the flower prints would make anyone crazy - please take note in all the pictures).

Bathroom1.jpg Worlds smallest shower (we know the Europeans do it up small but even this shower takes it too a whole new level - it is really hard to tell by the pics). It was hard to get a good angle but the white box in the middle of the room is the shower.

Bathroom2.jpg The inside of the shower. The shower head was hand held so sitting during your showering was the way to go (although if you are over 5'5" your knees hit the door (Devin was fine - me not so much).

Kitchen.jpg Great kitchen and awesome stove. It served us well.

We will try to grad some snap shots of the outside on our last day and post them later...

Le Due Maria was definitely a unique experience to say the least.

Hi Erin, I'm in a library in England- I've never been to Italy, but it looks amazing, maybe next year for me. Did you ever get a full breakfast? A full breakfast @ a B&B here consists of sausage, eggs, ham, tomato, mushrooms and fried bread - the fried bread is lovely, I had to have it. Enjoy the rest of your wonderful adventure. Maddi
