Hotels in Rome
Rome, the capital of Italy, is undoubtedly one of the most interesting cities in the world. Not only those who are interested in history and historical buildings get their money's worth here. The city on the banks of the Tiber River is rich in important buildings and museums. Fortunately, the most important sights, like the Venetia Palace Hotel, are located right in the city centre, so you benefit from short distances.
In Rome, you will find numerous monuments from the Etruscan period to the present day. Rome's Old Town, St. Peter's Basilica and the independent Vatican City State are UNESCO World Heritage Sites and are therefore particularly popular with tourists. In the old town of Rome, for example, you will find the Pantheon, the only preserved dome of antiquity. The Colosseum and the Forum Romanum with the adjacent Imperial Forums also date from antiquity.
Opera lovers should visit the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma, one of Italy's largest opera houses. In summer, performances also take place in the Caracalla thermal baths. For art lovers, the Capitoline Museums, the Museo Nazionale Romano or the new MAXXI for Contemporary Art are the best places to visit.
In Piazza Navona with its beautiful fountain and Piazza di Spagna with the famous Spanish Staircase, or the Trevi fountain, it is easy to take a break and enjoy the atmosphere of the city. The Villa Borghese park is a little quieter, with many small museums, monuments and a zoo to discover in addition to nature.
