Let's find a Parioli, Rome budget hotel.
The Parioli-Auditorium district of northern Rome is defined to some extent by the winding Tiber River. Parioli is an upper class neighborhood whose name come from the pear orchards that have long since disappeared. Just so you know, this district was a favorite of Mussolini’s bigwigs during his heyday. This is embassy country and so offers international schools. The district also hosts Rome's Islamic Cultural Center and a major Mosque, which should be viewed from the interior. The Rome Parco della Musica (Auditorium) was completed in 2002. This spectacular complex includes recording studios, restaurants, bars, shops, libraries, and museums. The Ponte Milvio is one of Rome’s oldest bridges; first rebuilt in 109 B. C. Make sure to see the mid-Sixteenth Century Saint Andrea in Via Flaminia Church. 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.
