Rome is the capital of modern Italy. Rome is full of history everywhere you look. It has many ancient monuments, interesting medieval churches, beautiful fountains, museums, and Renaissance palaces. Modern Rome is a bustling and lively city and has some excellent restaurants and nightlife. The Vatican and St. Peter's are also found in Rome.

A DAY OR TWO OR THREE IN ROME

The trip to Rome is a long car ride or a more convenient two hour train ride which allows you to enjoy beautiful Tuscany hills flowing by your window.  Parking in Rome can be a problem.  It is possible to go there for the day and go back another day.  As you pull into Rome, you feel overwhelmed by its size and confusion of traffic, but soon you realize it is not as cumbersome as it looks. 

 

ROME Roma

Eternal Rome is one of the few cities in the Western world that can boast two and a half millennia of history and artistic development. For shoppers, Rome's special beauty lies in the fact that shopping and culture are delightfully inextricable.

Rome offers big‑city and small‑town shopping at once. There's a sense of colorful conviviality in the hustle and bustle of Via del Corso and other major arteries, but in the small, winding vicoli where open botteghe pour out onto the cobblestones, the silence is broken only by the steady hammer of woodworkers' tools. This dichotomous character is evident as well in the curious compatibility of the ancient with the modern, the monumental with the mundane, genius with disorder. Rome gives the impression of a very busy city of leisurely citizens, whose raucous, chaotic activity magically ends when the sacred siesta hour arrives. The flow of Roman life creates a remarkable stage set—an age‑old comparison that is inevitable in Rome, where the love of display is inborn.

"Italia meridionale," or Southern Italy, begins in Rome. A day in Milan, to the north, would bring the contrast into sharp focus for the innocent foreigner who thinks there is only one Italy. Although capital of the government, the Church, and the television and film industries, Rome is a city strangled by bureaucratic complications and does not pretend to offer Milanese efficiency. Romans consider the Milanese too obsessed with punctuality, money and hard work. In fact, the expression "Roma, non basta una vita" ("One lifetime is not enough for Rome") may well have been coined to describe the long periods of insufferable waiting.

Popolo/Pantheon

The area surrounding the spacious l9th‑century Piazza del Popolo was sometimes referred to as the Foreigners' Quarter. What could be more appropriate than to start a morning of shopping with a frothy cappuccino in one of the square's two renowned outdoor cafes? Many foreigners took up residence in this neighborhood, part of an endless stream of pilgrims who arrived from the north on the Via Flaminia, heading for the Vatican. Merchants and artisans appeared to accommodate their needs, and in this triangular neighborhood whose base incorporates the area around the Pantheon, you will still find a delightful mixture of artisan shops and moderately priced commercial stores. Among the following listings, the age‑old tradition of family‑run enterprises holds fast, with each proud store owner touting his specialty— candles, toys, belts, antique prints or decorative boxes. Valiant shoppers who stray from the well‑trodden Via del Corso, the neighborhood's eastern boundary, will enjoy meandering through narrow side streets, exploring old‑fashioned herb shops, bookstores, cabinetmakers' botteghe, fashion boutiques, and colorful morning street markets. A favorite is the Mercato di Stampe, a small outdoor market specializing in old prints that is held every morning in Piazza Borghese. As the sophisticated Via Condotti continues on toward the Tiber, it turns into the less expensive Via Tomacelli, known for its varied shoe stores. Near the site of Italy's stately Parliament building, between Piazza Colonna and Piazza Montecitorio, small men's stores and old‑world haberdashers become more elegant, offering a blend of British style and Italian workmanship. Antique hunters will enjoy browsing the fashionable antique shops around Via Fontanella Borghese. The whole area around the Pantheon and the Campo Marzio offers good‑quality shopping in moderately priced family‑run stores that cater as much to their loyal local customers as to tourists.

This historic quarter shares the flavor of the bordering Piazza Navona area. Its focal point is the somber Pantheon, originally built by Consul Marcus Agrippa (a contemporary of Antony and Cleopatra) more than two millennia ago. Hadrian's remarkable reconstruction, which you see today, is only a century younger and is the best‑preserved of all ancient monuments in Rome; some consider it the single most perfect building in the world. Here you'll almost believe that the city truly is eternal. In the first century B.C., this warren of winding cobblestoned streets was an open plain, the Campo Marzio (Campus Martins), used for military excercises and athletic recreation. It was soon covered with magnificent public buildings—circuses, baths, and theaters, as well as Agrippa's beloved Pantheon. By the Middle Ages, the population of Rome was concentrated in this district, and except for the disappearance of a large and bustling fish market, it has not changed drastically. One curious vestige of that period is "Religious Row, "the long and narrow Via dei Cestari. The Pantheon had been built as a pantheistic temple (hence its name) but was consecrated as a church in the seventh century A.D. This encouraged the arrival of religious supply shops catering to the Roman Catholic hierarchy and to pious pilgrims, many of whom found lodging in this neighborhood. The shops are still here, offering liturgical articles for archbishops and altar boys alike; elaborate handembroidered silk chasubles, crimson cardinals' stocks, and handcrafted gold reliquaries. You may not be in the market for ecclesiastical high fashion, but the window shopping is fascinating.

ROME OLD CITY The ancient part of the city is manageable by foot – a fabulous city for walking with its maze of streets and captivating boutiques just begging to be explored.  Rome is bursting with a wealth of fantastic museums, ancient monuments, spectacular cathedrals, gourmet restaurants, beautiful boutiques, colorful piazzas, whimsical fountains, inspiring statues, theater, and opera – the city itself is virtually a museum.


ROMAN FORUM

You can not miss seeing the gigantic Colosseum, the entertainment center for the citizens of ancient Rome.  Another landmark is the Forum.

Raphael Rooms Batanical Gardens


The Sistine Chapel alone is well-worth a trip to Rome just to savor the breathtaking beauty of its ceiling painted by Michelangelo.

To fully appreciate all the Vatican City has to offer, you could easily spend two days, one in St. Peter’s Basilica and one day in the Vatican Museums.  The Basilica is a virtual museum.  Not only is the structure magnificent, but the works of are inside are almost unbelievable:  imagine gazing at such masterpieces as the Pieta and the Baldaccchino. 

 

Rome Hotel Barocco Region: Lazio Ebook Map(s): 6 8 10

The Hotel Barocco is a full service refined hotel with a friendly and intimate ambiance. The location is excellent - although the address is shown as being on the busy Piazza Barberini with its famed Triton fountain, the entrance, marked by a row of potted shrubbery, is discreetly tucked around the corner. You enter into an intimate lobby where there is no frenzy of activity, just a reception counter tended by a gracious staff headed by cordial manager, Franco, happy to assist you whether it is with reservations for dinner or transportation to the airport. Beyond the reception area is a lounge which opens onto a small bar. The decor features a series of murals depicting scenes of Rome, below which the walls are covered with a rich cherry wood. The breakfast room, where a full buffet is served, has the same decor with scenes of Rome on the wall. The guestrooms on six floors have great city views or balconies (all similar in decor, but different in size) continue the same classic look, with travertine bathrooms, reproduction paintings, and an abundant use of cherry wood in the built-in headboards, wainscoting, desks, and bedside tables. Cream, wine red color themes, as well as deep-blue matching drapes and bedspreads, accent the wood trim giving a sophisticated, refreshing, almost nautical look. The rooms are a good size, but seem larger by the placement of enormous wall mirrors behind some beds. Several new suites, one with rooftop terrace, have been added.

Rome Hotel Hassler
Region: Lazio Ebook Map(s): 6 8 10

The magnificent Hotel Hassler stands out as Rome's premier deluxe hotel - still family-owned and managed by the Wirth family. Its location at the top of the Spanish Steps is unsurpassed: the majority of Rome's monuments and chic boutiques are close by, and for guests who want to explore Villa Borghese Park, complimentary bikes are available. The fact that the proprietor, Roberto Wirth, is on the premises shines forth: you almost feel like a guest in a private palace. When the Hassler was renovated, Astrid Wirth, Roberto's wife, even tracked down the old-established manufacturer who was able to reproduce the original fabrics for the walls. The decorating theme is classical with hues of warm reds and ochres prevailing, the same rich colors used in many palazzi across Rome. At the heart of the Hassler is a romantic inner garden courtyard, a delightful oasis with stone walls laced with vines, a fountain, statues, flowers, cozy little tables, and a bar. The panoramic restaurant at the Hassler is also spectacular, boasting one of the finest views and cuisine in Rome: the entire panorama of the city surrounds you as you dine. All of the guestrooms are splendid, but if money is no object, reserve one of the magnificent suites, some with enormous terraces and a view so spellbinding that you will never want to leave this splendid hotel. Dining is available also at the elegant Salone Eve or at the Palm Court Garden - or at the nearby Hassler owned Aroma del Palazzetto restaurant.

Zeroing in on two critical features, key location with views and ambiance, the inn is not only just around the corner from the Roman Forum but literally has a piece of the forum within its premises! On a quiet and picturesque street of the characteristic Monti neighborhood, the peach-colored 15th-century residence, has been transformed into an intimate, luxury accommodation full of very unique surprises.

Back to reality, the individually-styled "classic meets ethnic" bedrooms are distributed on the three upper floors with every imaginable amenity and designer bathrooms. The next surprise comes as you enter the sophisticated top floor lounge with fireplace, where breakfast is served either in or outside on the front rooftop terrace with superb glimpses over cupolas and tiled roofs to the Palatine hill. The final triumph of this awe-inspiring place are the two back bedrooms on this same floor which open out to a walled-in garden complete palm trees. Not simply a stay, but an experience.

The Inn at the Spanish Steps is divine. Surprisingly, there are few exceptional accommodation choices in the historic center, but this property, half a block from the world's most famous staircase, is truly remarkable. The dream of the Di Rienzo brothers, owners of several large hotels in Rome, was to create an intimate, almost club-like ambiance with all the trimmings for a few privileged guests in an unbeatable location. So they took over an historical, 17th-century private residence (Hans Christian Andersen lived here for years), striving to maintain its origins as a home. The inn now offers a minuscule reception room on the ground floor, 24 bedrooms spread out among the three upper floors, and a marvelous rooftop garden where guests can have an ample buffet breakfast or sunset drink, either in the cozy veranda or out on the flower-laden terrace, complete with bird's-eye view of the steps and the fashionable Via Condotti. Doubles are divided into two categories: superiors at the back and luxury doubles and junior suites at the front. Rooms with wood floors and antique furnishings include every possible amenity. Upholstered walls and coordinated drapes accent frescoed or beamed ceilings. There is even a 3-bedroom penthouse suite with breathtaking views and 24-hour butler service. Guests who remain more than three nights receive the bonus of an airport transfer or guided tour of the city. Nothing else compares.

Just off the Popolo Square on the Via del Babuino with its many exclusive boutiques and antique shops is the intimate Hotel Piranesi. The residence, known as Palazzo Nainer, dates to 1820 and was designed by the renowned architect Giuseppe Valadier, who filled Rome with his elegantly-designed buildings. It was bought and completely refurbished by the Cesari family, renown producers of fine linens and fabrics, whose elegant store is right next door. The location could not be better at walking distance to the Spanish Steps, and neither could the high-quality attention and service offered by its very competent staff. A "boutique" hotel in style, it has 32 bedrooms of varying size with marble bathrooms, the most desirable being those on the top floors with private terraces. Richly furnished rooms with all amenities are smartly decorated in soothingly soft yellow hues with antique armoires and desks, and accented, as throughout the entire hotel, with Piranesi etchings of Rome. Sunset drinks can be served up on the marvelous rooftop terrace looking up to the Borghese Gardens, and Roman rooftops, and terraces. An extensive breakfast buffet is served in the luminous yellow breakfast room near the small reception area. Other facilities include a fitness room, sauna and solarium, garage nearby, and car rental and driver service. Delightful.

Rome Residenza Paolo VI Region: Lazio Ebook Map(s): 6 8 10

A new alternative in the area of St Peter's Basilica right within the Vatican City walls is the Residenza Paolo VI, special because of its unique position right at the edge of one of the world's most famous monuments. This seemingly modern building from the façade is actually of ancient origins, evident in sculpted Roman columns preserved within walls at the entrance. A small front courtyard leads to the main door and elevator which takes you past Vatican office spaces and photos of past Popes to the third floor reception area. The classical music playing sets the calm mood of the place and half of the bedrooms are lined down two narrow hallways with white tiled floors, reminiscent of the monk's cells from times past. New guestrooms are classically appointed with reproduction antiques, oriental rugs and chandeliers. The 29 rooms are concentrated on the two upper floors with the corner junior suites having privileged views through Bernini's colonnade to the Basilica's impressive façade. A wood-paneled breakfast room on the top floor offers a buffet in the morning as well as light meals, but the best feature is the rooftop terrace lined with 6 small tables, which overlooks a larger private terrace with fountain and potted palms. At this height, the view reaches the top of the colonnade straight out to the cupola, magnificently illuminated at night, for a superb close-up look at the sculpted details of Michelangelo's masterpiece.

When it comes to the expression "room with a view" you couldn't possibly make a better choice than this super-deluxe property. The Di Rienzo family of the Inn at the Spanish Steps decided to go one step further and refurbished in high style the penthouse apartment on the corner of the Piazza di Spagna and Via Condotti. With this address need we say more? The ambiance is of pure privacy and privilege with the choice of taking over the entire apartment or one of the four deluxe rooms: two doubles, suite, and junior suite.

A full-time butler is at the complete disposal of guests and can also provide a walking tour of the historical city. In addition, a driver or chef can be hired upon prior arrangement. A sleek and contemporary sitting area in earth tones with accents in black, same décor as the rooms, looks directly out to the flower-laden terrace where breakfast is served overlooking your neighbors' terraces - the likes of Bulgari, Valentino and Gucci. Although this is an 18th-century palazzo, the apartment has been outfitted with all the latest technology including hanging plasma televisions, high-speed Internet connection and automatic temperature control. A one-of-a-kind indulgence, spacious and luxurious marble bathrooms are the icing on the cake.

If you are seeking luxury accommodation in a private, historic home with all the personal attention immaginable, then the Villa Spalletti Trivelli is the place for you. Situated behind the Quirinale President’s palace, the stately home of the Count Spalletti Trivelli has been in the family since its turn-of-the-century origins. The formal entrance and first floor sitting rooms, dining room and historic paneled library (10,000 volumes) with fireplace preserve the ambience of their noble past with family portraits and photos displayed. These grand rooms with enormous hanging tapestries all lead out through french doors to the formal garden and gazebo where aperitifs are served. The upper two floors have been elegantly renovated and offer 9 guestrooms and three suites of varying sizes, each individually appointed with the utmost comfort (fine linens, cashmere throws) and modern conveniences in mind, and include large marble bathrooms. Elegant antique furnishings harmonize well with the soft warm tones and rich coordinated fabrics. And if all this wasn’t enough, just inaugurated on the lower level is a sleek fully-equipped spa with all the latest treaments, gym and hammam, a haven of calm and relax after a day of touring Rome. An efficient and discreet staff is at your beck and call for logistic or touristic arrangements. Perfect!
