1. Re: Best area to Stay in Rome

Most here agree that the best areas in Rome to stay( probably most central to attractions) would be Spanish Steps, Travi Fountain, Pantheon, Paizza Navona . The last three would be my first choices. After that you have The Termini, Coloseum, Trastevere and The Vatican areas.

The last four would maybe not be quite as central, but still very good areas to stay. The Termini would probably be the easiest area to get around from with public transportation. Also, the last four tend to have a greater selection of lower cost options.

I see that some posters are worried about the location of the hotel in Rome and how they will be able to get to the different locations. I have a couple of links that might be of some help :-) First of all I have made a Google map of Rome that shows you where some of the attractions are located and you can find this map here: http://gardkarlsen.com/rome_italy_map.htm . My wife and I stayed near Termini when we went there and our hotel is marked with a yellow marker.

Another useful link is http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/ . This is a Google map tool where you can measure distances. With this you can zoom in on Rome (or any other place) and measure distances from one attraction to another.

Another useful page is http://mapfrappe.com/ . On this page there are two maps...first indicate a know area on the top map (e.g. an area of Grand Rapids)...and then zoom in on Rome on the lower map. Now you will get an outline of Grand Rapids on Rome and that should give you an idea when it comes to size.

Hope this helps :-)
