    talking ab. Rome, in my opinion the area surrounding Vatican City is a good place to stay: here if you'r lucky, you can find something at cheap rates, but most of all the rea is well served by the underground. For this reason, you can easily move in Rome, and you are also walking distance to some of the most important places to visit when in Rome: the Vatican, Vatican Museums, Castel Sant'Angelo, Piazza Navona and so on...

    if you accept my suggestion, you should first decide which kind of accommodation you need: hotel/B&B or apartment?
    and if looking for an hotel or B&B, decide which kind and how many rooms you need:
    state your budget: you can choose different areas according to your budget, or - in other words - your budget can decide which areas you can choose and which are too expensive

    after that, you can start a search.
    and doing that, don't forget OUR website...

    here our deals on Rome Hotels and B&Bs :
  • Rome has much to offer to all travellers, whether you're seeking archaeological wonders, amazing shopping deals, or a romantic adventure.
    Depending on your itinerary decide on the best area of Rome to book your accommodation. After all, you certainly don't want to be trekking around town all day and then have to travel for an hour to get back to the Hotel. We suggest you to stay in a Hotel in Rome City Centre

    To avoid disappointment be sure to book your hotel in Rome well in advance since they can be expensive and choices can be limited if you leave it to the last minute.
    If you seek accommodation with maximum comfort and style then we suggest a luxury hotel or if in search of savings we suggest a cheap hotel.

    Hi there,

    My husband and I are traveling to Italy this June, since this is my second trip to Italy, I sort of know where I would stay before I booked the hotel. When you're planning on the accommodation to a city you've never been to, it's good to look up on trip advisor and see the reviews. I normally type in the city name and sort it by popularity, make sure you check 'Show TripAdvisor Top Values first'. It helps if you have a budget in mind first.

    That being said, we are staying at Hotel Rosetta in Rome, their website is 90 euros per night for a double room. The hotel is pretty well rated and is right besides Colosseum (less than 5 minutes I think). From there, it's a very easy walk to most of the major sites in the city.

    We're staying in Hotel Al Ponte Mocenigo in Venice, their website is 140 euros per night for a double room. Unfortunately hotels in Venice are the most expensive in Italy. Beautiful beautiful rooms on their website and great reviews too. So I think that's pretty much best bang for your buck.

    There's not much in Pisa, not enough to drag your luggage there just for one night in my opinion. I'd recommend you to stay in Florence which is a great city, birth place of Renaissance, and take a day trip to Pisa.

    If you have enough time, Cinque Terre is highly recommended, to lots of people, that's their favorite part of Italy. I'd missed it last time but plan to make it up this time around.

    Hope these helps. If you have further questions (I have been to most of the major cities in Europe including Amsterdam and Paris), feel free to email me at [email protected]

    Good luck and have fun.

    Don't miss the Colisseum, the Vatican city and the Trevi fountain. If traveling with a 3 year old, keep your excursions short, and maybe hire a taxi driver to make things less stressful with getting around. Expect queues at the Vatican but don't miss out on it - especially St Peters cathedral.
