Lazio and Abruzzo are neighbouring Italian administrative regions to the south of Tuscany and Umbria. They are both relatively small so it makes sense to list our places to stay here in one section. Lazio includes Rome, and most of this section is devoted to places to stay in Italy's capital.
Places to stay in Rome tend, of course, to be expensive, but among our selection are some fairly priced options, for example the Residenza Torre Colonna, an excellent newcomer. Among long time favourites are Hotel Due Torri and Locanda Cairoli.
As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in Lazio and Abruzzo, including Rome offers an exceptionally interesting range to choose from: pensioni, alberghi, restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
