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 Trevi Fountain, Rome budget hotel.
The Trevi Fountain area is close to the center of Rome. The fountain that defines this area starred in two famous motion pictures, Three Coins in the Fountain and La Dolce Vita. Throw a coin in the water and make a wish, your wish will become true and you will return to Rome. At least that's the story. Close to the fountain you'll find the Baroque Santi Vincenzo e Anastasio a Trevi church. The nearby Palazzzo Colonna is open to the public only on Saturday. It was featured in the movie Roman Holiday. Don’t miss the Scuderie Papali palace which now hosts an art museum. 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.
