Explore the eternal city
Rome, Italy’s capital and largest city, needs little introduction. One of the most historied locations in the world, we can help you discover its incredible past with a luxury trip focused around expert guided tours and local insight.
Glorious reminders of Rome’s illustrious past, from ancient Roman wonders to Renaissance masterpieces, are all on show. That’s not to say that its cosmopolitan streets do not embrace the now; the Italian capital is as exhilarating and forward thinking as ever, and you can explore this fascinating patchwork of the ancient and modern from one of Rome’s luxury hotels.
Unmatched heritage blends across the ages to make a stroll through Rome endlessly surprising. Vast palaces, fashionable avenues and towering cathedrals are surrounded by a maze of alleyways, little churches and hidden ruins.
From little more than a Latini village 2800 years ago, Rome rose to become the heart of the most extensive political and social structure in western civilisation. Landmarks from this golden era, such as the Colosseum, the Pantheon and the ruins of the Forum, define Rome today, and it would take weeks to fully explore the city’s plethora of ancient remains.
The Sistine Chapel was restored in 1480 and later decorated by Michelangelo, while construction of St. Peter’s Basilica was begun in 1506. Rome became the capital of the unified Kingdom of Italy in 1871 and truly returned to bloom as capital of the Republic after 1945.
While the modern day city sprawls, most places of interest fit into a fairly small historic centre. To the east of the Tiber, strewn across the Seven Hills, one can explore the districts of Old Rome, the Renaissance-era centre of the city, with beautiful cathedrals and squares such as the piazzas Navona and Campo de’ Fiori. Colosseo marks the ancient city centre and contains the Colosseum, the Imperial fora and Capitoline Hill. Adjoining is the Modern Centre, home to the Trevi Fountain and elegant Via Veneto, and above this the North Centre and Spanish Steps. Across the Tiber is the independent Vatican City
But it’s always worth taking a step back. Coffee in hand, embrace ‘la dolce far niente’, the sweetness of doing nothing, regarding the chic locals backdropped by an ancient basilica. Astride a vintage Vespa with a guide, head away from the crowds to a rustic gem of a restaurant for that perfect pizza Romano and a robust red.
