I have been reading this board in advance of my 2 week trip to Rome. I'll be staying in Trastevere beginning Wed. Oct. 17th. We are there because my wife is on an academic grant to collaborate on an Italian play she is translating. We do not have much money at all and we have a 3-month-old baby with us, too. I do really appreciate good simple food wherever I can get it (and whatever it is), however, and I do not require any atmosphere.
Though in the minority, some posters on Rome here have seemed to mentioned that they would like to stick within a budget. When they get specific, however, that budget tends to be around 30 Euros/person. My question is, what if I wanted to stay under 10 Euros/person? This is probably a economic zone occupied by primis, pizzas and perhaps some ethnic food, but if you reccomend it I will try it. I will have plenty of time and an ample sense of adventure, just not much disposable income.
