This small hotel combines 19th century architecture with a modern interior to give a wonderful boutique feel.

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.

Things to Do

Things to see and do

With more than 3,000 years of history, there is more to see here than any other city in the world. Most of its wonders are not in the museums but in the streets, so it’s just as enjoyable to simply stroll around the city centre and take in the unique atmosphere.

  • Vatican City and the Sistine Chapel: Spend at least half a day here as the museums and grounds cover around seven kilometres of exhibits, most notably Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel. Arrive early to beat the crowds
  • The Colosseum: One of Rome’s most iconic landmarks. For over 450 years this impressive arena drew in the crowds as it hosted deadly gladiator combats, animal hunts and re-enactments of famous battles
  • Palatine Hill & Imperial Forum: The Roman Forum was at the very heart of ancient Rome and has some of the city’s best-preserved monuments
  • Pantheon: One of the best-preserved buildings of ancient Rome, dating back  to 27 AD
  • Spanish Steps: We love the bustling atmosphere around the 135 steps that link Piazza di Spagna and Trinita dei Monti Church. The area boasts its fair share of gelateria too!
  • Trevi Fountain: Tucked away in a small piazza, the fountain is a must-see to admire the intricate marble details
  • Villa Borghese Gardens & Museums: These centrally-located gardens offer a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. There’s more than 148 acres of grounds to explore
  • Piazza Navona: Impressive baroque fountains, including the famous Fountain of the Four Rivers, take centre stage here and the piazza is surrounded with lively cafés and restaurants
  • Trastevere: For a taste of authentic Rome, hop across the River to Trastevere. It’s a great place to have dinner

Food & drink

While you're in Rome, make sure you try some of our favourite dishes. Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe is a simple yet elegant dish with spaghetti cooked with parmesan and black pepper. Carciofi alla Romana or ‘Roman artichokes’ are very popular too. Try them deep fried or steamed with garlic and herbs. Try Rome's take on pizza with pizza al taglio. They're a range of personal pizzas or flatbreads with fresh toppings, best eaten in front of a fountain in a piazza.
