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.

  • There is a lot to discover and learn about this civilisation what the museum manages quite well to guide you through a long its first part. But after the first half, I seems it is more a display of the different collections than organised to carry you through history. The building is also nice by itself.
  • One of the most interesting museum in Rome. It is dedicated to Etruscan civilization. Museum is rich and is a must for all lovers of history. All exhibits have explanations in English.
  • Fabulous Italian museum of Etruscan history. Not to be missed. Many historical artifacts.
  • For us who do not speak Italian this museum has limited to offer. Many of the great stands are available in English as well as Italian, but most of the information tables in the counters with artifacts are only in Italian.
  • One of my favourite museums, all about the people who were here BEFORE the Romans
