It was quite late when we landed in Rome.  After about a 15-20 minute journey the automobile pulled up to this cryptic gate off a very long dim road.  It was near to midnight.  The gate swung open, as well as the gravel crunched beneath the tires as we pulled to the compound.

"Where the heck are we?  What's this location?" I used to be so lost.  It did not seem like a resort, therefore the thing that was was it?
 
The driver helped us up the stairs with our bags and a child with long dark curly hair came out of one of the doorways, launched himself as Alessandro, and had a hushed talk to the driver.  It was dim.  Quiet.  The place looked abandoned.  Were we being set up for an international abduction?  The motorist left and Alessandro opened the door two doors down in the one he arrived on the scene of.  I 'd examined it on Trip Adviser, but nonetheless, I was a small worried about what was indoors.  The the moment we walked in, I 'd a severe are you kidding me second.  Is this really where we're remaining? All I could see was a long hall, but it was like the prettiest hall I'd ever seen.  The location was enormous!  Alessandro stated they were setting us in the initial room on the right as it was the greatest one, and that because it had been late we're able to come next door each day to discuss that which we wished to do while we are there. !
