I prefer not to give suggestions about hotels and always invite to have a look at a travel web site, such as Trivago, Expedia, etc., to have an idea of the accommodation you may like in Rome.
Of course if you are undecided among a list of different hotels i will be happy to give you my advice.


When in Rome be sure you taste matriciana or carbonara or cacio e pepe pasta. Then pizza, ice cream, espresso, cappuccino…


Your trip to Rome won’t be complete without a visit to:
