Arguably one of the greatest cities in the world, it's next to impossible to ignore the commanding, historic ambiance in the capital of Italy. This is the political and religious center of Catholicism and evidence of the Roman Empire is abundant in the city's statues, monuments, fountains and architecture. Some of the world's most famous artistic masterpieces and structures dwell here. Just a four-minute walk south of Villa Borghese's grand 17th century gardens and estate is the prized Baglioni Hotel Regina, an elegant stone building known as one of Rome's landmark hotels. Live la dolce vita in one of the stunning Art Deco rooms.
Fontana di Trevi is an 86-foot high Baroque fountain. This fantastic masterpiece is located in the Trevi district of the city and serves as the most picturesque backdrop for a family portrait.
West of the Tiber River, the Trastevre neighborhood is a lovely place to get a feel for the expatriate life in Italy. Two American universities are located here and the area has a host of bars and night clubs.
On-site at Baglioni Hotel Regina, Baglioni SPA by Caschera features two massage treatment rooms, fitness center, sauna, Turkish bath, Jacuzzi and privacy. Soak your feet after a busy day on the streets of Rome.
Between Piazza di Spagna and Piazza Trinita dei Monti sit 138 steps known as the Spanish Steps. Though eating and drinking on the steps is forbidden in order to keep their integrity, a stroll up this famous staircase is a must.
A trip to Rome is often a Catholic rite of passage. Vatican City is made up of St. Peter's Basilica, the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican Museums, the Vatican Apostolic Library and a mass of internationally famous, historical art.
At Baglioni Hotel Regina, the Brunello Lounge & Restaurant opens off of Via Veneto and serves Mediterranean cuisine and thoughtful cocktails. Chef Luciano Sarzi Sartori incorporates "the best products from farm and sea."

Life, love and the pursuit of a hot coffee. Belly up to the (espresso) bar and request, "un caffe" at any time of day. If you don't want to out yourself as an American, don't order a cappuccino after 11 a.m., as locals treat it as an early morning treat.
Should your travels find you in Rome for more than a weekend, Florence is a worthy day trip by train. The high-speed train can get you there in an hour and a half and the regional train takes a little more than three hours.
A cost-efficient way to see the historic spoils of the eternal city is with the Roma Card and Omnia Vatican Card. This card serves as a ticket to multiple museums and sites and is valid for a few consecutive days.
No one wants to spend half the day waiting in line. When you book a walking tour with Viator, you can stroll directly into sites like the Colosseum in a group of 25 other people. Additionally, you'll enjoy the benefits of an experienced tour guide's storytelling.
Rome's pleasant climate is heavily influenced by its Mediterranean location. The city can be very warm during the summer, when temperatures creep into the upper 80s and low 90s. Winter is rainy but overall quite mild - temperatures hover in the upper 30s and snowfall is rare. The Mediterranean influence is, of course, unpredictable, so be prepared for sudden changes.
