Welcome to HotelGuide.Networks' directory of hotels and hotel reviews for Rome, Italy!
Rome and history go hand in hand, with Eternal City origins tracing to the legend of Romulus and Remus in 753 B.C. Situated midway down Italy's western coast along banks of the Tiber River, Rome brims with icons, monuments, plazas and attractions. As the city where Nero fiddled and Mark Antony praised Caesar, it's possible to trace their footsteps (all the while dodging modern-day motorized traffic). Ancient monuments remind that Rome, where all roads led, was once the greatest center of Western civilization. Among all those roadways, the best known is Via Appia Antica, built in 312 B.C. Christian teaching indicates it was along the Appian Way that Peter encountered the vision of Christ, and a segment near the city is lined with ancient tombs of patrician Romans. Underground tunnels, or catacombs, are where early Christians buried their dead and, during times of persecution, conducted church services on the sly. A few are open for guided tours. Despite looting ancient ruins for marble, Vatican architects are credited with creation of Renaissance treasures melding old and new. Yet those eras are only part of the Roman spectacle. In what's been called Hollywood on the Tiber, Federico Fellini filmed La Dolce Vita and 8 1/2 at Rome's Cinecitta Studios. Streets such as Via Veneto and Via Margutta have been immortalized by screen legends from Elizabeth Taylor, Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn to, more recently, Matt Damon and Gwyneth Paltrow in The Talented Mr. Ripley. Rome's main tourist season runs Easter through October, although many shops and restaurants close in August. For the new millennium, Rome embarked on a program to erase ravages of pollution, adding sparkle to favorites like Trevi Fountain and Piazza Navona. Apart from attractions such as the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's Basilica, and the Colosseum, Rome teems with fascinating sites far less famous. Campo de' Fiori, cultural center of secular Rome in the 1500s, showcases a statue of Giordano Bruno, a monk whose stern appearance reminds that religious heretics were once burned at the stake. The campo now hosts an open-air food market. Afternoons are ideal for sightseeing at the Spanish Steps or shopping in the Via Condotti, a fashion-lovers paradise. The entire spectrum of lodging options is available in the Greater Rome area, from luxurious private apartments overlooking scenic or historic landmarks to world class contemporary hotels to intimate bed and breakfast inns where you can experience authentic Roman culture and cuisine along with the residents.
