Rome - accommodation


(John Adams) #1

Has anyone made any accommodation plans for the MA in Rome? Where would you recommend staying?

@stevieflow recommended the San Lorenz district, b/c it’s away from tourists and has good pizza. Can’t think of two better success criteria! Bit of a hike from IFAD but SF says the transport is good.

Open Ag team usually does co-located AirBnB’s but I’m not sure any of us have put an initial flag in the ground for others to rally around. Be a first mover and many will follow…

We’ll use one of the recommended hotels near IFAD for the MA, but will likely move downtown for TAG Piccolo and beyond, so keep suggestions coming pls.

The Secretariat recently emailed members with a list nearby hotels that offer special rates. You need to mention you are attending a meeting at IFAD https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9fOygt3mnZOOWpzOTVMSm52VGs/view?usp=sharing

Hi, we can’t afford the hotels so I’m looking at the area around Stazione Ostiense (Testaccio district) for accommodation as it’s cheaper and on the transport lines to/from airport (FL1 train) and to/from IFAD (Metro) and FAO (bus) and only 5-15 mins by public transport into some of the sights. Anyone else staying around this area?
