Welcome to Rome! We hope the following guide is useful to you. Enjoy your stay. 

Accomodations

Accomodations in private homes are not available. There are thousands of youth hostels, bed and breakfasts and hotels in Rome.

The most central area to stay in is the Via Nazionale area (close to the Termini Train Station). It is close to a synagogue, to the main tourist attractions and to local transportation and to the Jewish Quarter.

Another great area is the Jewish Quarter (Ghetto) area which is behind the Great Synagogue on the Tiber river and in an area that has many Kosher restaurants and mini markets.

The Piazza Bologna area is also convenient, there are two synagogues in the area which follow Libyan Jewish ritual, it is next to the B subway line which takes you to Termini in 3 stops and to the Colosseum in 5 stops. There are also some Kosher places in the area as well.
