Rome Hotel with a car

We will be in Italy for three weeks in August, and because we will be doing a lot of driving, have decided it would be most economical to rent a car for the entire three weeks.

We will be spending three nights in Rome, but I'm a little worried about having a car in Rome, so was wondering if there is an area just outside of Rome, like Fiesole is just outside of Florence, where it would be convenient to stay. I would like to be able to take a bus into the City center--hopefully not more than 15-20 minutes. We will need two rooms, and prefer a small hotel or B&B--not much more that $110 per night if possible.

Hello Catherine,

A better bet would be to be somewhere where you can get into Rome by train.
My suggestion would be Castel Gandolfo, (summer residence of the pope) - a pleasant hill-town in a lovely setting above Lake Albano. 40 minutes from Rome by train.

Let me know if I can be of more help ...

Steve

Catherine-

We are staying in the Aventino Hill area with a car and the hotel has free parking. If you have driven in a large city in the US (NY, Chicago, etc) I find it isn't that different if you have good directions.

Hotel- Villa San Pio; $115 double in the low season (august)

Sarah,

The Hotel Villa San Pio looks great. Thank you for the suggestion. Do you know how far it is from major sights, and how long a bus or train trip it is to the "center" of town? I like that it has free parking--so we could just leave the car there--but do you think it's close enough to feel like you're still in Rome?
