Located a stone’s throw from all three of our boutique hotels in Rome, this world-famous staircase was built in 1723. Although funded by the French and designed by an Italian, the Spanish Steps get their name from the Spanish Embassy that is located at the bottom.

Whether Italian, Spanish, or French, one thing is for sure: The Spanish Steps are a Baroque masterpiece—and one of Rome’s main icons. (They’re also where Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck met in the 1953 film Roman Holiday). Today, travelers flock to the steps from all over the city, taking a pausa from their sightseeing to rest and people-watch.

If you’re staying with Rome Luxury Suites, don’t worry—this icon is almost impossible to miss. The Spanish Steps are located within a 5-minute walk of Babuino 181, Mario de’ Fiori 37, and Margutta 54.

The most famous fountain in Europe, if not the world, the Trevi Fountain is another Rome must-see. Just at the edge of the Spanish Steps neighborhood, it’s within a 10-minute walk from our three boutique hotels. But although it’s famous for its 18th-century, Baroque style, the Trevi Fountain’s roots go back far earlier.

In the 1st century B.C., Rome’s first emperor, Augustus, decided to build a new aqueduct—which meant he needed a fresh source of water. According to legend, his soldiers weren’t having any luck finding one… until a lovely young woman directed them to a spring. The resulting aqueduct was named the “Virgin Aqueduct.”

After barbarians sacked Rome, the city’s aqueducts fell into disrepair. The Virgin Aqueduct was the only one that kept running. And so, in the early 18th century, the pope decided to commission a grand fountain as thanks. The result—today’s Trevi Fountain—took architect Niccolo’ Salvi 30 years to build. Today, the fountain might be most famous for being the spot where Anita Ekberg and Marcello Mastroianni frolicked in Fellini’s 1960 film La Dolce Vita.

In the evening, take a passeggiata from Babuino 181, Mario dei’ Fiori 37, or Margutta 54 to visit the lit-up Trevi Fountain. And don’t forget to throw your three coins in. According to this time-held tradition, with one coin, you’ll return to Rome; two, return and fall in love; and three, return, fall in love, and marry.

Think of Piazza del Popolo, a stone’s throw from Babuino 181 and within a 5-minute walk of Margutta 54 and Mario dei’ Fiori 37, as the entrance gate to Rome. For centuries, most people approached Rome from the north—so this was the first spot in Rome they would have seen. The Baroque sculptor Bernini himself refashioned the Porta del Popolo (the piazza’s main arch).

Dubbed the “Piazza of the People,” this square is where Rome’s biggest outdoor New Year’s Eve party takes place, as well as the center for Carnival celebrations. If you’re staying at one of our hotels in Rome, make sure to ask your concierge if there are any events going on at Piazza del Popolo during your stay.

A scenic stroll from our three boutique hotels in Rome, Piazza Navona has to be the city’s most beloved piazza. Once home to medieval jousts and carnivals, the square is now where Rome’s annual Christmas market takes place. But there’s entertainment here year-round, from street performers to artists.

Don’t miss the fountain in the piazza’s center: This is the world-famous Fountain of the Four Rivers, designed by Bernini in 1651. And if you’re wondering why the piazza has such a strange shape—it’s long and narrow, with one end oblong and the other rectangular—duck out the piazza’s northern end. The excavated area beneath shows an ancient Roman arch, one of many beneath the “modern” buildings that encircle the piazza. Piazza Navona originally was the site of emperor Domitian’s stadium, the Circus Agonalis.

Easily reachable from any of our hotels in Rome (take metro line A three stops from Spagna to Ottaviano), St. Peter’s Basilica is one of Rome’s must-see sights. That’s even though it’s not technically in Rome, but rather in a separate country, Vatican City—the smallest country in the entire world.

The basilica at the heart of this country is actually the second St. Peter’s Basilica. The first, built by Emperor Constantine in the 4th century A.D., was glorious… but decrepit by the Middle Ages. In 1506, Pope Julius II tore it down. The “new” basilica he commissioned took 120 years to build. Head architects on the project included Bramante, Bernini, Michelangelo, and Raphael.

Still one of the largest churches in the world, the basilica also is one of Rome’s most breathtaking. From the monumental statues by Bernini, to the 450-foot-tall dome, to the 9-story-tall baldacchino over the main altar, nothing here was done on a small scale. Don’t miss the paintings in the basilica’s many side chapels—each painting actually isn’t a painting at all, but a mosaic.

The Villa Borghese, an easy stroll from any of our hotels in Rome, is Rome’s answer to Central Park. The largest green space in the historic center of Rome, the Villa Borghese dates back to the 17th century, when it was created as a pleasure garden for Cardinal Scipione Borghese. Turned over to the public in the early 19th century, it’s filled with faux-ancient temples, fountains, an amphitheater, and even a small lake.

The Villa Borghese is a great place to come to relax, picnic, go for a stroll, or even catch some culture—especially for those staying with us at Rome Luxury Suites,. Among the excellent museums located in the park are the Villa Giulia (Rome’s Etruscan museum) and the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna (National Gallery of Modern Art). The biggest showstopper, though, is the Galleria Borghese, a beautiful museum built by Cardinal Scipione Borghese himself to show off his top-notch art collection. Just remember that if you want to visit the Borghese, you need to make a reservation. Ask our concierge at Mario de’ Fiori 37, Margutta 54 or Babuino 181, as we’re happy to help!
