Rome Italy - Lodging
Hotel recommendations. I suggest two neighborhoods if this is your first trip to this fabulous, historic, huge, busy city. I tried to include lodging in all price ranges. Trastevere: This is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Rome. It was a working class neighborhood so most buildings and quaint cobblestone streets were left unchanged for centuries. Now, it’s full of small family owned rentals and tons of restaurants. There’s a photo op on every corner. You will see graffiti on a lot of the buildings and most restaurants aren’t open until after 7:30pm, but it does become lively in the later evening. As a solo traveler, I’ve always felt safe here. Vatican area: The area right East and South of the Vatican is busy, but a nice place for tourists to stay. During the day there’s lots of restaurants and shopping. The evening has fewer dining options, but still an overall safe feeling. Plus, it’s always easy to find your way back to the Vatican! Where NOT to stay: Termini. This is the main train station of Rome the hotels and hostels in this area can be really hit or miss. I wouldn't stay here on your first visit.

Orsa Maggiore Hostel for Women Only
@jenniferclark
Trastevere area: If you are looking for a safe budget friendly option, here it is! The location is perfectly situated in Trastevere. As the name implies, it’s for women only. When I stayed there, many of the women were over 50. You get a bed and a tall lockable closet about 24 inches wide. The bathrooms are down the hall and provide privacy in both the toilet and shower areas. Please note, the nuns who run this place have a strict curfew at midnight!! I do not have a booking link, but you can google this place, make sure you are selecting the one in Rome.

Hotel Capo d'Africa - Colosseo
@jenniferclark
Coliseum area: This is a wild card entry, it's not in Trastevere or near the Vatican, but it's such a lovely hotel and it's very close to the coliseum. This luxurious hotel, the area right by the coliseum feels safe, and in addition the hotel has a 24 hour front desk.

Hello women over 50, as a seasoned expert in European travel, my passion lies in assisting you to confidently book your dream vacation. With over 40 countries visited, including 30 solo trips taken after the age of 40, I have a wealth of knowledge and experience to offer women travelers. Twice during my career, I decided to hit the "pause" button and embark on a journey around the globe. My first adventure took me on a six-month expedition to the heart of Europe, where I spent most of my time exploring the charming cities of Rome, Florence, and Venice. Italy holds a special place in my heart, and I have deep knowledge of its culture and attractions. During my subsequent career break, I focused my travels on the stunning Greek islands and the breathtaking landscapes of Iceland. Though vastly different destinations, both offer unique experiences and unforgettable memories. I am eager to share my passion for adventure and discovery with you. My goal is to empower you with confidence and excitement as you embark on your long-awaited European trip.
