    Im currently thinking about going to Rome next May. Where is the best place to book? Checked Expedia best price is around £800 for 3 nights for me and our lass.

    At that price I would just keep thinking about it.

    The airline rumoured to be involved in Julius Caesar's death, hence his final words "Jet2, Brute".

    We were there in the summer. Stayed in a small clean safe hotel just on the far side of the Terminii train station which meant we got a bus to and from the airport cheap and fairly fast. There were a couple of decent street restaurants next door to the hotel. The station had loads of shops for back up supplies like nappies for the bairn, biscuits, European charger etc and there were money exchanges giving much better rates than at the airport. You could walk around the end of the station to catch the open top city bus tour, and while the hotel and station are on the edge of the main city area (north east side, farthest from Vatican) we caught the subway over to the Vatican one day and were happy to walk around the rest of the time. The Vatican has no lifts or escalators and loads of steps so if you have a bairn in a pushchair or are crippled you better get in training.

    Love it me. Previous time I was there was during Italia 90 when I saw Italy 1 v USA 0. Coin in the fountain so hopefully I’ll make it back one day.

    Book flights, transfers and digs separate and you'll get it <500quid easy
     
  13. As mentioned there are plenty reasonable hotels around Termini, but If I was going for the first time I'd probably stay near the Via Del Corso, to be in the centre of things.

    Personally when I go now I stay in Testaccio, usually in the Hotel Re Testa, it's like Trastevere before the gentrification.
