The center of Rome, the best area to stay in Rome

As in all large European cities, staying in the center is the most comfortable option. By itself, Rome has many interesting places to visit and they are usually 2 or 3-day trips in the city, so the less time is lost in transport, the better. Although it is not the cheapest option.

In this area you will find beautiful streets, monuments and places of interest to visit and plenty of cafes, restaurants, shops...
