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 Saint John in Laterno, Rome budget hotel.
You will find the San Giovanni in Laterno district in the southwest corner of Rome. Its major attractions include the San Giovanni Basilica and the Laterno Palace; the residence of the popes in the Middle Ages. Both buildings are located on the San Giovanni Piazza. The Battistero S. Giovanni was built in the days of Constantine, the first Christian Emperor. At one point all Romans, or perhaps all those Romans who really counted, were baptized there. Other sights to see include the ruins of the beautiful circular temple of the Minerva Medica, the brick Castrense amphitheatre, and the neighboring Church of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme. 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.
