Top 5 places to stay on cheap holidays to Rome
Cheap Rome Holidays - Accommodation in the Centro Storico
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city’s historic centre - Centro Storico - is a fantastic place to stay. Scattered with ancient sites dating back over 2,000 years, its churches, basilicas, monuments, statues and fountains won’t fail to amaze. Visit the the Forum and Market, where ancient Romans would gather to shop and socialise, before making your way up to Palatine Hill, and on to the ruins of the Flavian Palace. If you really want to save on sightseeing, visit Rome during ‘la settimana dei beni culturali’, a week during May in which the city’s publicly owned landmarks offer free admittance!

Where better to stay than beside Rome’s best known landmark?

Of course, it’s surrounded by equally amazing historical attractions, well worth a visit during your stay.

Cheap Rome Holidays - Accommodation in the San Giovanni and Esquilino
San Giovanni and Esquilino are two adjacent neighbourhoods in the city, home to a range of exciting historical attractions. There are dozens of churches in the area, including Santa Maria Maggiore, arguably one of Rome’s most beautiful basilicas: built in the 9th century and adorned with golden mosaics, it also houses a museum telling the story behind the church. But Santa Croce in Gerusalemme should be your first port of call: constructed to hold relics relating to Jesus Christ, the church is said to contain wooden pieces of the cross, part of a nail and two thorns from Christ’s crown.
