My husband is making a crazy mileage run tomorrow to assure himself of Delta Platinum status next year. Rome happened to be the city that conveniently was the right cost/distance/seats available, etc. Last year, he also did a mileage run to Spain and just stayed in the airport for 3 hours before the return flight to the States. This year, he actually gets to sightsee for a bit.
So, any suggestions on what to do? He’s staying opposite the Porto Pia and near the Termini station. Via Veneto is 1 kilometer away from his hotel, and the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps are with 2 kilometers.
