"To get a taste of this tradition and see the Eternal City froma different vantage point, stay in a convent or a guest house run by a religious order... Accommodations range from simple to quite luxurious.. you will find comfortable beds, newly renovated private bathrooms, and, in many cases, a hearty breakfast.
The following website will be of help www.monasterystays.com"
"Some Italian convents and monasteries let out rooms as a modest revenue-making exercise and happily take in tourists... prices tend to be quite reasonable. www.monasterystays.com a well-organised online booking centre for monastery and convent stays."
The Blue Guide, Italy
"Monasteries and convents in Rome are an excellent option for good-value accommodation in the city, particularly as some of the buildings are located in central positions that rival many hotels. Each property is individually run, and all offer clean, basic accommodation, many with private bathrooms. Monastery Stays offer an online booking service."
