Always joyful, sometimes ludicrously chaotic, Rome is a celebration of over 2,000 years of history. It combines modern dynamism as Italy’s capital with that unique Mediterranean sense of the “dolce vita.” Given such appeal, visitors will find our host of hotels in Rome to suit every pocket and expectation.
First-time visitors should don sensible shoes and leave our Rome hotels early for the landmark Coliseum, Forum, Pantheon and St. Peter's Basilica. For some grand vistas of the “Eternal City” and the nearby Alban Hills, climb Palatine Hill. Just as rewarding is a visit to the vast museums and tombs of the Vatican.
Alternatively, leave your central Rome hotel and the city hubbub behind and head for the Villa Borghese. Unwind in its lovely gardens and small galleries, or take to the city’s back streets and explore the wealth of hidden gems beneath the tangle of washing lines. When the lure of expensive designer clothes becomes too much to bear, the fashion-conscious head to Via Condotti whilst the younger generation make for the hip Via del Corso.
For romantics, an evening stroll through the Trastevere district is a lovely way to end the day before returning, tired but happy, to our Rome hotels.
