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 Pantheon, Rome budget hotel.
The Pantheon in central Rome was built as a temple to the pagan gods. This lovely building is the best preserved temple of Ancient Rome, rebuilt in the Second Century. It is the largest unreinforced concrete dome in the world. Take a look at the sky through the oculus, the hole in the dome and admire its original bronze doors. The Palazzo Montecitorio houses the Chamber of Deputies, and the Pantheon area is home to many other historical buildings including Santa Maria sopra Minerva, Rome’s only Gothic church which houses a Michelangelo. The Piazza della Minerva in front of this church hosts an elephant bearing an Egyptian obelisk. Talk about multiculturalism. 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.

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.
