Would love suggestions for a hotel or B&B with a knockout location in southeast-ish Rome.
I'm going to be in the city for one night and one full day before heading to Lanciano for a wedding. It's my first time to Rome, I'm traveling by myself, and I want to optimize the free day I have by exploring the area on foot. I plan to wake up at dawn, so ideally it would be a somewhat safe location for me to walk around at a time of day that's not very busy.
I'll be coming back into Rome later in the trip and will be exploring the Villa Borghese and Spanish Steps, etc., area with a group, so I don't need to be near those attractions.
Ideally, I'd stay someplace very near ruins or a historically important site (not like Rome isn't a historically important site itself!). Because it's just one night, this typically budget traveler is willing to splurge to get what she wants.
Thanks in advance for your help.
