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 luxury hotels. On the way we describe multiple tourist attractions in the neighborhood. Each article includes beautiful photos of both a tourist attraction and the reviewed luxury hotels. 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 Campo de' Fiori, Rome luxury hotel.
The delightful Campo de’ Fiori area is in south central Rome. It is home to the classic Campo dé Fiori Square, which has hosted a produce market for over 140 years. Its name, Field of Flowers is rather ironic; this was the place for public executions, such as the killing during the Inquisition of Giordano Bruno in 1600. His statue overlooks the market. The Musei Capitolini is located in the Palazzo dei Conservatori and in the Palazzo Nuovo, two buildings on the east and west sides of Piazza del Campidoglio, both with facades designed by Michelangelo. Don’t just look at the outside; there are excellent ancient sculptures, some of which are copies. 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.
Hotel Teatro di Pompeo.

Levi Reiss has authored or co-authored ten books on computers and the Internet, but to be honest, he would rather just drink fine Italian or other wine, accompanied by the right foods. He teaches classes in computers at an Ontario French-language community college. Visit his website www.travelitalytravel.com devoted to Italian travel with an accent on fine Italian wine and food. Visit his central wine website www.theworldwidewine.com with weekly reviews of $10 wine and columns devoted to various aspects of wine including wine and food, humor, trivia, organic and kosher wine and lots more.
