I'm going to rome for a month (on my own, yaiks )and i was wondering if anyone knows a hostel or housing in general near the city's centre that is affordable - read 'cheap'?
Also, i read just now that the whole of italy is on holdiays during august. Does this mean that all the 'cool' shops, clubs and places will be closed??
I'm leaving july the 30th so i need this information pretty quickly...
your spending a whole month in rome? wow.. why not go other places too like sicily, sardinia, naples, florence, venice, verona, milan.. anyways
i'm in rome for 20-22 august. and i know that vatican museums are open. i hope everything else is too. well likke roman forum and colloseum, etc
Finding cheap accomodation near the centre may prove to be tricky. Here's just one suggestion: Pop Inn Hostel, next to Termini railway/UG station. See http://www.popinnhostel.com for more info.
Have a pleasant stay in Rome!
