  • The Cordonata (road in slope, formed by wide transversal elements of stone or bricks that make it similar to a staircase) most famous connects piazza del Campidoglio with below Piazza d'aracoeli (designed by Michelangelo Buonarroti in the 16th century). The cordonata capitolina (of easy access and transit as designed for the transit of men on horseback) widens slightly upward, where are the large statues of the Dioscuri, Castor and Pollux.

  • If you go to Campidoglio or Capitoline museums, often by this staircase designed by Miguel Angel, it begins with a pair of Egyptian granite lions and is crowned by 2 magnificent equestrian statues of Castor and Pollux (twins heroes of Greek mythology). It is a good place to take pictures in chopped and counteracted

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.
