Tips for traveling to Rome

All routes of Rome in 4 days They start from the Termini station area, an area where we stayed in the two visits we have made to the city. We recommend this sleeping area because it is much cheaper than the center, without being too far from it and because of the good communication with the airport. The hotels chosen for our stay were the Hotel Cherubini and the UNA Hotel, the first most affordable, although the second for us has a better value for money. If you want to stay in a more charming neighborhood, we recommend Residenza San Calisto, located a few meters from Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere.
