Rome Travel Tips

WHERE TO STAY Find out which parts of the city to stay near...and which parts to avoid!

URBAN TRANSPORTATION
Tired of walking?  Like any other city, Rome offers several modes of transportation.


You want to stay as close to the heart of the city as possible.  Take a look at our MAP to inspect the various areas around the city.  Look specifically at hotels near a subway station, since trains are always the easiest mode of public transportation for tourists to use.  You should, however, avoid the area around the Stazione Termini, since this area is known for its crime and nightime activities.

If you are looking for peace and quiet, you are vacationing in the wrong city.  Rome has the constant bustle and noise of most major metropolitan areas. 

Your best bet is to try to book a hotel near one of Rome's famous landmarks.  The city center is compact, and most of the city's old sights are within walking distance of each other.  These landmarks include:
Castel Sant' Angelo, City Center, Colosseum, Roman Forum, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Spanish Steps, and Trevi Fountain.
