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...
Transfer Time
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.

Exquisite service in a 17th century former monastery designed by Francesco Borromini.
Tripadvisor review May 17 2022
Lavish breakfast, a lush garden, attentive and personal staff. Some rooms are not so easy to get to, but that is the nature of the very old building, which is very quiet. This is a hotel for people...
