The Guardian unleashed its latest city in its online and interactive series: Rome City Guide. So here’s a bit of shameless self promotion: you get to  peak into my mind and where I love staying in Rome, whether on a budget or living in the lap of luxury.   Not only are my top ten budget hotelsserviced apartments and shopping spots (via Luxe Guide)  featured, I am happily amongst a collective of some of my favorite Rome-based, Rome-obsessed writers, bloggers and foodies including Katie Parla, the Economist and Guardian Rome correspondent John Hooper, art historian John Fort who recently revised my favorite: The Companion Guide to Rome, and photographer Jessica Stewart.

*This is a lot of linkage.
