Getting a taxi from Flour is nearly impossible and there were no nearby Ubers, so we started walking towards the hotel and hoped to flag down a taxi. Unfortunately every one was full and so we stopped about halfway to the hotel as we were getting dangerously late to call an Uber. … [Read more...] about Trip Notes Rome: Veni, Vidi, Vici In 48 Hours; United Polaris First Class And Polaris Lounge Review
