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.

  • The first public library in Europe is still a library and is still public! A beauty and a hidden jewel! I was amazed!! It felt like real life Hogwarts! Pure magic!  more »
  • We saw the entrance to the library after visiting the Sant ’Agostino church, which is next door. This is a public library that is steeped in history - it is supposed to be one of the most ancient publ...  more »
  • Not really magical but I fully expected the books to be traveling from shelf to shelf similar to any of the Harry Potter scenes. Very impressive. Hidden gem for sure. My family had no idea what they w...  more »

  • An old Library Italians use that they will let you peep at. Interesting interior that's fun to see, like a mediocre (for Rome) Church, but happily, for a change, not a Church, and with the refreshing decoration of walls full of mysterious old tomes instead of pious Saints. Plus, what are all those people at the tables studying? At a glance this library does not carry any books published after 1850 or so. I wish my library had a bit of this. We've stopped carrying anything published before 2012. Very much not worth a trip of any kind, and yet totally worth the five minutes if you just happen to be passing by (and Caravaggio fans might as it's next to Church of St. Augustine with its Madonna of the Pilgrims).
  • As a tourist, happy we came to check it out and came early. We were only tourists there at 9am. Won't take you more than five minutes to peek in and wonder what all those super old books are about!
  • Beautiful and worth seeing. However, if you need to use internet, do not come here, there is only one computer available and the wifi, even though it says its public, you will not be given the access code to it. Also the lady who worked the closing shift was incredibly rude, unlike the man in the front desk who was helpful and always showed a great attitude.
  • Nice ancient atmosphere. 👌
  • Beautiful library!
