The eternal city is a unique place where the remains of a splendid past mingle with the peculiar personality of its people. Strolling through Rome is like visiting a museum: its monuments, squares, churches, fountains and the Roman Coliseum bear witness to the glorious battles between Roman gladiators.
All these sights are complemented by its friendly people, the reason why it is one of the world's most-visited cities. Our hotel in Rome is located in one of the most authentic and charming areas of the Trastevere.
The Trastevere is the ideal place for losing yourself in its colourful streets, squares and vast gardens, such as those of Julius Caesar, where apparently Cleopatra once lived. Once inhabited by craftsmen, fishermen and traders, it is now one of the city's most characteristic neighbourhoods, where the visitor to our hotel in Rome can walk and look around.
The Coliseum and the Roman Forum
The Coliseum is a true Roman architectural marvel, with a capacity for 60,000 spectators and the symbol of the famous fights between gladiators and wild beasts. The Forum was the centre of the political, religious and commercial life of Ancient Rome. If you come to our hotel in Rome, you simply must visit the via Sacra [Sacred Road], once the site of religious processions and victory marches.
Piazza Navona and Fontana di Trevi
During your stay at our hotel in Rome, you must also visit the Baroque works. The Piazza Navona is one of the typical squares of Baroque Rome, with its ever-full terrace cafés. It boasts the Fountain of the Four Rivers, which represents the giants of the epoch: the River Plate, the Danube, the Ganges and the Nile. And visitors should not forgot to throw in the mandatory coin into the waters of the Fontana di Trevi to make sure that they will return to the Eternal City one day, where they will always have a place in our hotel in Rome.
Museums are a must-see in Rome, as they showcase the best works of art, as well as its historic monuments, many of them declared World Heritage Sites by the UNESCO, and many other key points in the Italian capital.
For shopping lovers, Rome is a great city for walking about and doing some shopping. The Tridente area, with the famous Via Condotti, Via Borgognona, Via Frattina, the whole area around the Piazza di Spagna, is brimming with famous jewelleries and workshops of the most important Italian and international designers. Another type of business that abounds in Rome are its shoe shops.
For many, going to the opera in Rome is indispensable. Throughout the year, many churches in the city perform La Traviata, and in the summer months, hundreds of operas, concerts and recitals are performed outdoors in the Rome's gardens, parks and monuments. The Teatro dell’Opera is the most prestigious in Rome, and receives thousands of visits a year.
