I Love Touring Rome, Italy - Hotels In The Parioli District

The Parioli-Auditorium district of northern Rome is partly bordered by the winding Tiber River. Parioli is an upper class neighborhood which owes its name to the pear orchards that have long since disappeared. Just so you know, this district was a favorite of Mussolini's bigwigs during his heyday. This is embassy country and so offers international schools. The district also hosts Rome's Islamic Cultural Center and a major Mosque, which should be viewed from the interior. The Rome Parco della Musica (Auditorium) was completed in 2002. This spectacular complex includes recording studios, restaurants, bars, shops, libraries, and museums. The Ponte Milvio is one of Rome's oldest bridges; first rebuilt in 109 B. C. Make sure to see the mid-Sixteenth Century Saint Andrea in Via Flaminia Church. For your convenience we have listed neighborhood hotels in approximate order of cost, starting with the least expensive. We have personally verified the bed and breakfast and all hotel websites making sure that they include English-language pages.

Levi Reiss wrote or co-authored ten computer and Internet books, but to tell the truth, 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. Check out his wine website with a weekly column reviewing $10 wines and new sections writing about (theory) and tasting (practice) organic and kosher wines.
