Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Donatello is a comfy hotel in central Rome. It’s family-run and traditional with a classic décor throughout. It’s the Esquilino district, which means its close to Termini station, the main hub of the city. With easy access to both Metro lines and the buses, exploring Rome is easy. You can walk to lots of places from here too. We recommend heading straight for the Colosseum and visiting the Roman Forum after to get a feel of the city’s history. The area also has some great opera houses and museums so you won’t have to venture far to get your culture fix. The hotel staff here are really friendly and will be more than happy to recommend more places to see and great bars and restaurants to try.

Transfer time: approx. 55 mins by private car from Rome Fiumicino airport.

Rome

The capital city of Rome is Italy’s masterwork. You can marvel at the Colosseum, Vatican City and Roman Forum with just 48 hours in the city, thanks to a UNESCO-listed historic centre with a roll call of millennia-old ruins and soaring domes. And just when you think you’ve seen it all, the city changes. An ever-changing flow of new restaurants, art exhibitions and festivals means that there’s always an excuse to revisit Rome.

What to see on a Rome city break

Away from the well-worn paths, Rome has plenty of surprises up its sleeve. Dive into tangled medieval neighbourhoods like Trastevere for narrow trattoria-lined streets and hidden chapels - the area comes alive at night with locals enjoying an aperitivo before heading out to dinner. Discover the city's stunning piazzas, framed by ornate buildings and boasting intricate baroque fountains. Or take some time out in the manicured Villa Borghese gardens with ancient villas that showcase some of history's most revered works of art.
