Where to stay for tourists
Despite the fact that the Trastevere area has not very cheap hotels, tourists should pay attention to it - it is in this place that they will be able to feel the true Italian spirit.
An equally attractive place to stay on vacation in Rome is the Celio area, but it's good if the chosen hotel is located in the back of the block, and not on a busy street.
For those interested in clubbing, it makes sense to find suitable accommodation in the Testaccio area. Well, the cheapest accommodation can be found in the Termini area - there are many hotels, plus attractions are close at hand, the only drawback is the crowdedness due to the proximity of the train station.
