Located in the Central western part of the Italian peninsula, Rome is known to be an “Eternal City” that houses the most renowned works of history, art and architecture. The Vatican City located in the centre of Rome is a holy city centre for Christianity.

Rome is well-known for its Colosseum which served as the ancient world’s largest standing amphitheatre, the Roman Forum, and vast city of Classical buildings. But the city’s reputation extends beyond its storied past; it is also home to the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, delicious cuisine, beautiful parks, world-class artwork, and thriving film industry. Modern Rome has more than 900 churches and 280 fountains that you can explore. The roman pizza, pizza al taglio is a must-try for all pizza lovers.

Where to Stay in Rome

Click below & search recommended Rome hotels/hostels/home rentals within your budget. Remember to set your min/max price, travel dates, and sort by review ratings. I often book online with these trusted booking sites below for rock-bottom prices & convenient bookings.


Book sooner rather than later if you already have your dates set. Cheaper-priced rooms and hotels with high reviews tend to get fully booked faster, especially during busy days like weekends, holidays & peak tourist seasons.
