The capital of Italy is a vibrant, energetic and stylish city. While thoroughly modern in sensibility, Rome is home to some of the world’s most important works of classic art and architecture. This city has been an epicenter for culture, politics and religion for more than 2,500 years. Of course, the museums are fantastic. Think of the Colosseum, the Spanish Steps and the Vatican. There are more than enough sights to keep even the most active tourists busy in Rome. Even somewhere as popular as Rome you can find places just off the tourist trail and bustling with locals.
But it’s also nice to slow down and enjoy Rome’s famous cafes and restaurants. They can be just as beguiling as the buildings. Lounge with an espresso on the Campo de Fiori and watch the changing light on the fountains and facades in a piazza. Visit the Vatican and explore some of the world’s most beautiful churches. Rome really comes alive at night. That's when restaurants and wine bars bring a renewed vitality to the city. You can also take day trips from Rome to local vineyards, olive groves, and other places producing regional delicacies. No matter what your interests, Rome will be an enjoyable destination.

Where to stay in Rome
With thousands of hotels in the city and not knowing the neighborhoods it can be hard to pick where to stay. We've mostly concentrated our accommodation selection around Rome's 'modern' city center for those who prefer to be closer to attractions such as the Spanish Steps and Piazza Navona as well as the Monti neighborhood. A valiant holdout against Rome's mass tourism, this little pocket of small streets, local restaurants, bars and boutique shops is the ideal area to stay in if you're seeking something more authentic. Whichever part of Rome you prefer to call home temporarily we've chosen some outstanding properties, from 3 to 5 stars, many with terraces affording spectacular views across the rooftops of Rome. Once we start preparing your customized itinerary we will present our recommended options for you to select from.

What I love about Rome...
“Each time I return to Rome I fall in love with the city a little more. There's just so much to discover it doesn't matter if it's your first or tenth visit. I love staying in the Monti area, still packed with local life, small trattorias, up & coming designer shops yet a stone's throw from the colosseum. ”
