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 Salario, Rome budget hotel.
The lush Salario district is part of northeastern Rome. A major focal point is the neo-Classical Villa Torlonia which was formerly rented by BM (Benito Mussolini) as his state residence at the rate of one lira per year. The Villa’s centerpiece is the Casina delle Civette. This property now contains a lovely museum. You might want to compare and contrast it with the Villa Albani that still belongs to the Torlonia family, said to be the wealthiest family in Nineteenth Century Rome. You may want to visit the Santa Constanza Church built under Emperor Constantine I, a mausoleum that contains the remains of his daughters. The church interior is decorated with excellent Fourth Century flora and fauna mosaics and scenes of a Roman grape harvest. Make sure to see the Ponte Salario (Salario Bridge) parts of which date from antiquity. 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.
