On the way we describe multiple tourist attractions in the neighborhood. Each article includes beautiful photos of both a tourist attraction and the reviewed luxury hotels. 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 University La Sapienza, Rome luxury hotel.
The University of Rome “La Sapienza”, is located in eastern Rome. This is the largest university in all Europe with over 140 thousand students. It was founded in 1303 but many of the present buildings were constructed in the early 1930s. As you might well guess, the neighboring San Lorenzo district has quite an animated nightlife. One of the area’s imposing sights is the Castra Pretorio that was built almost 2 thousand years ago at the edge of Rome. After serving as military barracks it became the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale (National Library). Make sure to see the Arch of Sixtus V and the Church of San Lorenzo fuori Le Mura which gives its name to the district. 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.
