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 Cannaregio, Rome budget hotel.
The Vatican City is the world's smallest country. Its total area is only about one sixth of a square mile (less than half a square kilometer). But as they say, good things come in small packages. The Vatican City holds a special place in the heart of millions and millions of people. This is where Saint Peter was martyred and buried. Saint Peter’s Square hosts the Basilica San Pietro, the Vatican Museums and Gardens, the Raphael Rooms, and the Sistine Chapel. But don’t miss the lesser known Castel sant’Angelo. This towering castle built by the Emperor Hadrian, later became a papal residence, and has become a museum. The Palazzo di Giustizia now houses the National Law Courts. Its nickname is Palazzaccio, which means ugly palace in Italian. Why not stop by and see what you think? I don’t think you’ll be calling the Ponte Sant’Angelo ugly. 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.
