Where To Stay In Rome

Staying in the Centro Storico Rome is the best area to stay in Rome for first time visitors. Staying in the city or at least very close to public transport will make your time in Rome so much more enjoyable.

Unless of course, you’ve been to Rome before and you’re staying in a neighbourhood you want to explore anyway.
On our first trip to Rome, we made the mistake of staying out of the city and not close to public transport, and although it was fine, there is so much to do in Rome and you don’t want to waste time or money (taxis in Rome are pretty expensive) getting from A to B.

Piazza de Popolo

Some of our favourite places in the city were near Piazza del Popolo and The Spanish Steps. Outside of the city, we liked the neighbourhood of Prati and Trastevere, but there are many more options.
