Eternal City

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever. Today, this bustling metropolis is a center of power, finance, art, culture, and religion. It continues to exert a powerful influence over the world in many ways. A truly global city, Rome boasts not only a historic town center listed as a World Heritage Site, but also numerous palaces, thousand-year-old churches, Roman ruins, magnificent monuments and statues, vibrant piazzas, and sculptural fountains. It is an international capital for both fashion and food. A city of immensely rich historic heritage and a cosmopolitan atmosphere, this is one of Europe's--and the world's--most visited, beloved, and beautiful capitals. Customize your holiday with our Italy road trip planning app to create an adventure that suits you.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
