The Eternal City
Backpacking in Rome is reasonably popular method of touring the city, as the majority of backpackers are moving from one European city to another. Rome has numerous options for travellers of all ages and budgets, including backpackers. Most of the hostels are situated a short walking distance from Stazione Termini area along the streets of Via Solferino, Via Gaeta, Via Palestro, Via Magenta, Via Marghera and Via Vicenza. This area east of Stazione Termini is full of cheap accommodation for backpackers. If you are staying for a week or more, haggle for a better price. On average you would expect to pay about €18-20 for a dorm bed in Rome and for most of them it will include breakfast with the cost.
