Bed and breakfast in a private apartment is a good way to keep costs down. One of Rome's best is Al Colonnato di San Pietro (0039 338 463 1035; from £74 b & b), in a 19th-century block three minutes' walk from St Peter's Square. The two bedrooms – one en suite, the other with its own bathroom – are smart and comfy, but what makes the place special is the superb welcome and hospitality of the owner Rosa Maria Chirico. Extensive breakfasts are served in your room.
