  • We stayed for 5 nights and found it very noisey so had to shut the shutters at night, air conditioning was only turned on between 3 - 9pm. Clean rooms with a safe and trams are just over the road.  more »
  • For the same price can stay at a Best Western more comfortable and clean, breakfast or terrible and bad attention. I would never, in general, bad service.

  • An odd place Nice ruins. Good tram stop. Litter al over - Including a pile of shoes
  • Great underground cathedral i.e. Ipogeo (visit on request)
  • The only Temple Pythagorean still standing although strong abyss in its decoration in stucco, miraculously discovered in 1913 some meters under the ground, under a railroad arriving at Termini. Unfortunately I was only able to visit it so the opening times are few: a few half days per month, with pre-registration required, by telephone only. If the language is difficult, so forget it! Too bad. Yet this temple is a must (read the book by Jerome Carcopino "Pythagorean major door Basilica" published in 1943. I am attaching 1 photo in the book.

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.
