The Pantheon, the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps… when that list just touches on some of Rome’s treasures, is it any wonder that Italy contains the most World Heritage sites of any nation on Earth?
Rome attracts millions of tourists each year, supplementing a growing expat population, people from all over the world, who have dreams of riding scooters, eating gelato and falling in love in one of Europe’s most iconic cities. Whether you want to be in the heart of the action or would rather escape to a local neighbourhood, Italy’s capital has plenty of places on offer to make your Roman dreams come true.
For first-time visitors to Rome, the Centro Storico – Historic Centre – is a good area to be based. Home to the Pantheon and the splendours of Piazza Navona, this is the Rome of your imaginings. All the major sights, including the Spanish Steps, the Colosseum and the bustling Campo de’ Fiori market are within walking distance. It is a veritable warren of streets, filled with baroque and renaissance palaces, churches, antiques shops and cafes. As you might expect, this area is the main draw for tourists, so it can be incredibly crowded and budget hotels are like gold dust. However there are a few cheaper options outside of peak season, and nowhere can match it for historic atmosphere.
Located on the other side of the Tiber River, Trastavere was, for a long time, a simple, working-class district that barely attracted other Romans, let alone visitors. Now though, thanks to an expat population studying at the two American universities and a period of gentrification, it attracts a great deal more tourism. It is still a slightly less frantic experience than the Centro Storico, and it easily has the better restaurants. It boasts plenty of beautiful churches of its own, and accommodation here can be found for a fraction of the price compared to the Centro Storico, with double rooms starting from around €30.
This district, named for two hills, is located to the south of the Colusseum area. Aventino is one of the Seven Hills of Rome, while Testaccio is a man-made hill, formed by piles and piles of discarded Roman terracotta. Nowadays, this is very much a local neighbourhood, with traditional restaurants attracting local clients rather than tourists, so it’s a great place to escape the crowds. The hilltop position gives wonderful views across Rome. The Keyhole View, on the Aventine Hill, offers a particularly beautiful view of the Vatican. It’s easily accessible: 20 minutes on foot to Campo de’ Fiori, or you can hop on the 271 bus from Piramide to get right into the Centro Storico. There is a range of guest houses and hotels to suit different budgets.
While there aren’t any places to stay within the Vatican City itself, unless you happen to be a close personal friend of the Pope, the tiny state (it measures just 0.5km square) is surrounded by hotels and B&Bs. Whether you’re planning a trip focussed on the Vatican, or you just want a convenient central location, this area fits the bill. The Centro Storico is just across the river, an easy 15-minute walk, and there is plenty of accommodation to suit every budget.

hideaki Every time, they help me about the sightseeing in Rome. It was first time for me to visited Rome but he always gave me many valuable informations and always kindness for me. If you have any questions, they help you anytime. The location is about 15 to 20 min from Termini sta. and buses are very useful not only for Termini but to the center of the city. If I have chance to go, I would chose Agnes B&B again anyway. Thanks.

vlado.cuba We stayed in this B&B for 7 days and we were, overall, very satisfied with the accommodation. The B&B is run by two cool, laid back and friendly brothers. B&B has all the necessary facilities, including the shared kitchen that can be used. The location of the B&B is very good, in nice neighbourhood, with metro station near and bus station in front of the door. The bus lines take you to every street and part of the town you can think of. Great value for money. We highly recommend staying in this B&B.
AndyWCole We stayed in this palce in early November 2010. The owner serves croissants, milk, coffee, and juice for breakfast. Housekeeping is very good.The rooms are very nice and clean with free wifi connection. It's in a great location too next to all the important sights. After visiting Florence and Venice, we returned to the place for our last night before flying out. Isa called one of his taxi driver friends and arranged a 6:00AM pickup for our trip to the airport. And got us a reduced fee for the trip. We absolutely loved this place, and it felt like a home away from home with the hosts' warm support and hospitality. Location, quality accommodations, and personalized support are an unbeatable package. All three of us were totally happy with this amazing place. Definitely recommended.
shisanmei A nice high room in an old-fashioned comparably quiet house, cool inspite of the hot sun outside, very close to the Vatican and its museums and archives, and a bit away from loud downtown. I only would have preferred a better desk to work with the notebook and a better light for that purpose (but that is a problem of many hotels and rooms...).

burdickkm Fantastic place to stay - Friedrich is very attentive, easy and fun to work with on all of your needs. Just ask him and he'll try to find way to help you out! The property is easy to locate, on a quiet street, it's clean and comfortable. Excellent location if you're going to Stadio Olimpico or the Vatican; 5-minute walk from Ottaviano Metro stop. There's even an Irish pub just a block away if you want to go out for a few drinks. We will definitely stay there again!
merrin.whatley Great hosts, good breakfast, a very relaxing place to stay. The location is a little out of the center but very easy to reach via metro and bus. We were even given a lift to the train station so we could get to the airport with minimal fuss. There are two bathrooms so sharing isn't an issue. We definitely recommend Zen House to others.
