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 Quirinal, Rome budget hotel.
The Quirinal hill in central Rome is the largest, highest of the Eternal City's seven hills. The district home to the Quirinal Palace, once the papal palace, and later the residence of the kings. It is now the residence of the President of the Italian Republic. There is a daily changing of the guard. The Scuderie del Quirinale, the former papal stables, has been remodeled and serves as a venue for touring art exhibitions. The hill is full of lovely palaces built by noble families in days gone by. Of course there are beautiful churches worth visiting. You’ll also want to see and perhaps hear the Teatro dell’Opera (the Roman Opera House) that was once among the most prestigious opera houses of Europe. Take a look at the calendar of the Palazzo delle Esposizioni (Exhibition Palace). They might be running something of interest. 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.
