Wondering where the best areas to stay in Rome are? Choosing the right district for your travel style can be daunting, especially if this is your first time visiting the City of Seven Hills. Whether you prefer to be right in the action next to the top attractions or nestled among the nightlife, this guide on where to stay in Rome will explain everything you need to know including why you’d choose that specific area.

Best Areas To Stay and Why

Piazza Navona, Pantheon and Trevi For Attractions

The great thing about accommodation in Rome is that you can find something to meet every budget and style of travel.

If you’re arriving late morning, read through the Vatican review and then check out the other entrance options below.

For this early morning tour, you meet your guide and enter the Sistine Chapel a whole hour before the general public, giving you time to see the intricate art in a smaller crowd.

Did you know that the Vatican is its own country with its own rules?

It is the smallest country in the world with a population of just over 800.

Remember to take ID with you as you will need it for this tour.

There’s a dress code which involves ensuring your shoulders and down to your knees are covered so keep this in mind when you are packing for your day in Rome.

Food wise, the meeting point is outside a piazza cafe which sells coffee and sandwiches and there is a cafe inside the Vatican for a morning comfort break.

The early access Vatican tour is laden with insight and backstory so best have a coffee before it kicks off!

As you wait to pass through security, your guide shares a map with a key of the epic Michelangelo fresco which was created between 1508 and 1512.

You can’t take any pictures of the famous roof painting but there’s plenty of other fascinating art and decor to capture as a souvenir.

The tour also includes access to St. Peter’s Basilica which is overwhelmingly beautiful.

Its Renaissance style is a work of art itself never mind the religious importance it holds in the city.

The early access Vatican tour is four hours long which may seem like a long time when you only have 24 hours in Rome but it does get you up and out of bed really early and on your way to explore the rest of the city by 11am.
