“What we do in our lives – echoes forever” says Maximus in the blockbuster “Gladiator” and in fact embodies through this great quote the whole concept that characterizes Rome from the day it was founded until today: a great, impressive, groundbreaking and full of glory city, to which the whole world looks.
Rome is the capital city of Italy and of the Italian province of Lazio, one of the most visited cities in the world and one of the most important centers of culture and history in modern times. Befitting an ancient empire that knew emperors, rulers, golden teachings and religious periods that established its strong and impressive position, Rome includes a very large number of buildings, sites, churches and holy places that turn the city into a rare pearl of beauty, exciting, artistic, delicious and exciting. Rome is a “must stop” that every Israeli tourist must visit at least once.
Rome is also the only city in the world where an independent state is located – the Vatican State, which is also considered the smallest state in the world and the symbol of Catholic Christianity and the seat of the Pope.
Quite surprisingly, the supply of hotels in Rome is considered relatively low compared to the supply available in other European capital cities. This creates high competitiveness among the hotels, but also a lot of congestion during the peak season (July-August) and the other dates of events and holidays in the city (we’ll get to that later). The price range in the various hotels is extremely diverse, with costs ranging from $40 per night for two-star hotels to over $100 per night in a five-star hotel overlooking the dome of the Vatican Basilica, for example.
Due to the advance of Rome and the fact that it faces tourists, most of its hotels are located near the main sites, or at least in good proximity to the public transport stations. And in general, due to the (very!) developed public transportation in and around Rome, no hotel suffers from access problems to the central areas. For example, a couple who prefers to take an Airb&b apartment in Rome instead of a hotel and enjoy a significantly cheaper price, will still not have to settle for the solid residential alley and will be able to use the bus, metro or tram to get to the center of things where everything is within walking distance.
If you prefer to stay in a respectable and luxurious Roman hotel, you can do so in a long line of luxury hotels that include crazy views in the desirable suites as well as an authentic and special Roman design that adds another layer to the special urban atmosphere.
