Planning a trip to Italy? Unless you're lucky enough to have family, you'll have to find accomodations. This series of articles focuses on Rome budget hotels but often includes Rome bed and breakfast accomodations. On the way we describe multiple tourist attractions in the neighborhood. Each article includes beautiful photos of both a tourist attraction and the reviewed budget hotels or bed and breakfast accomodation. Each hotel mentioned has a live link (we test them just prior to posting) to its English-language website. Keep coming back, we are adding new destinations all the time. Let's find a Aventino, Rome budget hotel.
The Aventino district is located in southern Rome. It boasts several important archeological sites such as part of the Appian Way, a Roman road that was built over 2300 years ago. About 500 years later the Emperor Caracalla began the construction of the largest baths that could handle up to 1600 bathers plus their slaves. While its exterior is sober, the floors are paved with mosaics and marble and its stucco walls are decorated with mosaics. This building was small potatoes compared to the Circus Maximus that could hold 300,000 spectators cheering on the chariot races. Make sure to see the Tempio de Vesta dedicated to Hercules and the Porta San Sebastiano (St. Sebastian’s Gate), said to be Rome’s most spectacular gate. Who would expect a pyramid in Rome? The district hosts Caius Cestius’s marble covered pyramid-mausoleum. For your convenience we have listed neighborhood hotels in approximate order of cost, starting with the least expensive. We have personally verified all website addresses making sure that they include English-language pages.
