About the location
Rome – the Eternal City – is often said to be the world’s greatest open-air museum, boasting hundreds of historic sights around every corner and in every square. There’s so much to see and do that you’d need a month to take it all in, but a week or less is enough to give you a taste of Italy’s incredible capital.
With more than 3,000 years under its belt, Rome has long been one of the world’s leading centres of culture. There are masterpieces like the Sistine Chapel
, numerous wine-fuelled feasts to partake in, and a raft of iconic sights, including the world’s largest amphitheatre – the Colosseum
Best of all, the majority of Rome’s attractions are within walking distance of each other, so you’ll be able to soak up the Roman way of life as you walk to the Pantheon
or Trevi Fountain
. Maybe you’ll discover a hidden church with beautiful frescoes or a secret trattoria serving excellent wine from the Lazio
hills. (See our small-group food tour
.) That’s when the phrase ‘when in Rome’ really comes in handy...
The hotel is 60 minutes transfer from Fiumicino airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.

As soon as I viewed this hotel I dreamed of getting married there, it had everything I ever dreamed off. I had my roof top canapes with views all over Rome with the sun setting and the most beautiful dreamy wedding dinner in the private hotel gardens. Everyone who attend my wedding were blown away and that what this hotel has, it has a whow factor. When you walk up those stairs to the terrace and see all of Rome it is a stunning setting for a wedding.
The staff were so kind and helpful. The food was outstanding , the chefs are so talented and created the most amazing menu. The cake and deserts table I still dream off. Our room was beautiful with views over the garden and champagne and treats provided.
Our wedding was tricky as I am Irish and my husband a Sikh but they accommodated all the different food and traditions for us and we conversed in English. Dora , Elena and Silva organised everything and it was all stunning. Thank you ladies. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough if you want a beautiful wedding. Its stepped in history , its beautiful and central.
