With layers upon layers of history, bohemian neighbourhoods, extraordinary boutiques, rustic side-street trattorias and more beautiful churches than days in the year, Rome is a city that needs to be revisited many times over.
Of course, the likes of the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Forum, Pantheon and Sistine Chapel are among of the world’s most famous monuments. But if you’re looking to escape the tourists for a quintessentially Roman experience, head to Trastevere. We believe this is the most picturesque district in the Eternal City; quaint old buildings in faded pastel shades line the ancient cobbled streets, with a few trendy boutiques and bars in between.
In a city with so much culture, you will be compelled to explore, and there is nothing better than returning to a resplendent haven in the heart of town. Luxury Explorer has handpicked two of the very best boutique hotels in the Rome – the regal and refined Regina Hotel Baglioni and the supremely elegant Villa Spalletti Trivelli.
Each time you visit Rome you will discover something more exhilarating than before, even if it’s one of the famous landmarks you have already visited. If it’s your first time, then you are about to begin a fascinating journey into the many facets of a city that makes you feel liberatingly humble.
