Time itself has been preserved over the centuries in the historical facades of Rome; little wonder that it’s come to be known as the “Eternal City”. The place of origin for one of the largest empires of antiquity is now an essential stamp on the passport of any travel lover. The varied offering of hotels in Rome allows visitors to enjoy a stay which always leaves them hankering for more, as this is a city with inexhaustible options.
The Italian capital’s historical centre is an extensive patchwork of streets, squares, monuments and emblematic places that require some very good planning to make sure you don’t miss any detail during your trip. More than three millennia in the making, the city is a veritable open air museum which one never quite stops discovering.
For this reason it’s important to start with Rome’s main points of interest, which are located within a triangular area composed of the Colosseum, Piazza del Popolo, and the Vatican. This extensive area of the city is home to some of the “unmissables” for your holiday in Rome.
Archaeological sites such as the Forum, the Theatre of Marcellus, Largo di Torre Argentina (where they assassinated Caesar) and world-famous monuments such as the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and the Ara Pacis Augustae... just some of the main tourist spots this area has to offer.
It’s also the perfect excuse to stroll around the city and enjoy some of the flavours of a cuisine known all over the world for its outstanding quality. The timeless ice-creams at Giolitti, a coffee in Sant’Eustachio, or the innumerable establishments offering “pizza al taglio” (by the slice)... these often on the agendas of not only visitors but also Romans themselves.
No break in Rome is complete without a visit to the heart of the Vatican, the sovereign country which is hidden away in the city and home to some of the most important works of art in the world. The majestic statues by Bernini at the entrance to St. Peter’s Square, the spectacular views from the dome of the basilica, and the hypnotising effect of the frescos on the Sistine Chapel – these are the kind of experiences that will stay with you for your whole life.
Hotels with excellent connections to Vatican City are a fantastic accommodation option for travellers who value both tranquillity and quality during their trips. In fact, some of the best hotels in Rome are to be found in peripheral areas with easy access to the main attractions in the centre.
The same goes for those who are travelling for business and prefer the hotels in Rome’s financial district. High-quality establishments equipped with indispensable services for a business trip: auditoria, meeting rooms, experience in holding conferences, good connections with the city’s two airports, shuttle service for visiting the centre of Rome and, of course, free Wi-Fi connection both in the rooms and throughout the communal areas.
