The Local Area
A short distance from this hotel you will find the famous Trevi Fountain. This fountain is a staggering twenty six metres high and twenty metres wide; it is the largest Baroque fountain in the area. It is believed that if you throw a coin into the fountain you are guaranteed to return to Rome. There are over 3,000 Euros thrown into the fountain daily, this funds a nearby Rome supermarket for the underprivileged.
The Sistine Chapel isn’t too far away. This is the best known chapel in the Apostolic Palace and is also the official residence of the Pope. This chapel boasts the most magnificent architecture and decorations include works by Michelangelo who painted 1,100 square metres of ceiling space. From the outside you may be disappointed, as the chapel just looks like a brick building, but once you step inside it is truly remarkable.
Saint Peters Basilica is another of the churches you don’t want to miss when in Rome. This is a late renaissance church within the Vatican City. This church has the largest interior of any church in the world and is considered one of the holiest Catholic sites. It is believed that Apostle Saint Peter’s tomb lies just below the alter. Michelangelo also redesigned the dome in 1547 and his initial sketches are available for you to see.
The Spanish Steps are the widest staircase in the world. The 138 steps take you up a steep slope to Trinita dei Monti Church. Plazza di Spagna lies at the bottom right corner of the staircase, this is now a museum dedicated to the poet John Keats. The Lorenzo Cybodo Mari Palace also lies at the bottom of the stairs.
A trip to Rome has to include the iconic Coliseum. This amphitheatre is the largest built by the Roman Empire back in 72AD. Originally this was used for gladiatorial events and dramas based on classic mythology, today it is one of the most popular tourist attractions with a museum on the top floor dedicated to Eros and underground passages to be explored.
