  • We didn't have time to check out inside but the building is very impressive and well worthy of a few pics. Not far rom the Colosseum.  more »
  • For the first time jumped over. I felt the sanctity of the place and I realized how nationalism can be really "religious". Whether this is a good is to be seen.

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.
