The Eternal City

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.

Fresh Things to Do

Featured Activity


  • When in Rome, Live As the Romans Do

    The greatest way to take in the sights and sounds of the eternal city is by foot. A long walk through the historic city's winding streets will lead you to some of the most culturally and historically significant buildings and sites in existence today.

    Colosseum. This is the venue where gladiators performed public spectacles, mock sea battles, executions and battle reenactments. You can feel its grisly history in its underground passages as you walk among the statues and inscriptions. Though an earthquake greatly damaged it in the 1300s, its historic chambers remain open to the public.

    Forum. Near the Colosseum on Capitoline Hill, the Roman Forum served as the central meeting place. Its basilicas were constructed during the Imperial period and military processions were held here for centuries.

    Pantheon. The large granite, Corinthian columns of the Pantheon are some of the best preserved of all ancient Roman structures. The Pantheon has had many identities but now serves as a tomb for famous composers, painters and architects.

Travel Tips

Weather


  • Forecasting Your Rome Vacation

    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.
