The Rome Cavalieri Hotel is the perfect location for an Italian getaway.

The Rome Cavalieri Hotel sits high on Monte Mario overlooking the center of Rome. It is the perfect place to relax in the Italian city.

He was a 5 star hilltop oasis that was my base during my first stay in the city to see some of the most famous landmarks in the world.

Sit on the balcony of your room or in one of the hotel’s bars or restaurants. You’ll get great views of the Eternal City, including the Vatican City and St. Peter’s Basilica, as Monte Mario is the highest point in Rome.

Opened in 1963, the stately Waldorf Astoria resort has hosted royals and celebrities such as George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt.

As soon as you walk into the lobby You’ll see why this hotel has Italian luxury with marble floors. golden stair railing and precious art wherever you look.

While there are many things to see and do in Rome. (And you have to see them.) The hotel itself is a destination that some guests who have done the touristy thing on a previous visit never leave during their stay.

You could spend days walking around. The hotel and 15 acres include a Roman spa. Outdoor and indoor swimming pools, beautiful gardens and tennis courts, where Venus Williams and Novak Djokovic (he may have been denied entry to Australia but not there) were both spotted.

We spent the morning in the Cavalieri Grand Spa Club (due to Covid You have to reserve time in advance for the pool and Jacuzzi) and it’s easy to see why it’s considered the best in Rome. The inner pool is a relaxing, expansive space reminiscent of all of ancient Rome.

while we were there in december The outdoor pool was closed. (Although there was a strange heat wave with temperatures as high as 17°In the summer, it’s the perfect spot to sunbathe and sip a cocktail while you admire the views of the city beyond.

There’s also a fairly large fitness suite right next door. and the spa offers an extensive menu of treatments featuring La Prairie products.

We stayed in the Imperial room. (located on the seventh and eighth floors) which has a private balcony. An added bonus is that staying in one of the rooms will give you access to the Imperial Club during the day and into the evening. You can enjoy drinks, canapés and excellent afternoon tea for free. Either in the lounge or on the balcony. Paying a little extra is worth it. Those who have stayed at Hilton in the past will know that this is similar to the offer in the Executive Lounge.

The room itself is very spacious. More than a central room — Everything at Rome Cavalieri is about more space and space. The rooms exude glamor that is evident throughout the building in tones of imperial blue and gold. and numerous Italian marble bathrooms with bathtubs and rainfall showerheads. There is a wide selection of Salvatore Ferragamo bath products, such as face sprays and pillows. to eye cream

With a large bed that guarantees a good night’s sleep. The double doors are also soundproof with electric shutters to shut you down from the outside world while you snooze. There are many pillow menus for you to choose as you like.

I took a peek at the hotel’s penthouse suite. Which is the most dilapidated and impressive hotel suite I’ve ever stepped on. You’ll need a lot of cash to get there as it costs around €10,000 per night.

The penthouse has a private bar. Swarovski crystal taps large jacuzzi and a unique sofa designed and formerly owned by German designer Karl Lagerfeld, as well as original artwork by Andy Warhol on the walls. Private with open air Jacuzzi

It’s no surprise that I discovered Don’t Look Up star Leonardo DiCaprio lived there while filming Gangs of New York, and Julia Roberts booked every time she was in Rome.

from that suite Guests will have their own entrance to the La Pergola restaurant on the top floor of the hotel. which is the only city with three Michelin stars. Only Chef Heinz Beck’s menu reviews put this restaurant on my bucket list.

You have to book in advance to get a table there. but other restaurants of the hotel like Uliveto that we went to eat It serves a delicious selection of delicious Mediterranean dishes. including classic pasta, meat and seafood. My highlight was the pappardelle pasta with wild boar, with a side dish. Try the French fries with black truffle and pecorino cheese.

Make sure and explore every inch of the hotel. It is home to one of the world’s most valuable and important private art collections, more than 1,000 paintings, sculptures, antiques and wall tapestries.

Of particular importance are the three precious panels of 17th-century Giovanni Battista Tiepolo in the hotel lobby. I’ve read that they’re worth $28 million, and the glass that protects them is bulletproof. Also, check out the marble statue of The Kiss, created by Antonio Tantardini in 1861, which became an Instagram photo of the couple on Valentine’s Day.

when you can drag yourself out of the hotel Make a plan of action to visit the attractions. Things to do include Vatican City and the Sistine Chapel. Colosseum and Forum, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon and Spanish Steps

It takes 20-30 minutes by taxi to the center of Rome, but only 10 minutes to the Vatican. The hotel offers an hourly minibus that will take you to and from Rome for free. We just grabbed an Uber to make it more punctual.

We spent a day in Vatican City. which is the smallest state in the world It has a population of just 800 and has its own postal service. It is the location of St. Peter’s Basilica. It is the largest church in the world. Its interior is as majestic as its exterior. Admission is free, but there is an entrance fee for the Sistine Chapel. It features intricate ceiling frescoes by Michelangelo. and the Vatican Museums

One of the best things you can do is get lost along the ancient rocks of Rome. Thank you for doing so. We found the best pasta I’ve ever tasted. This restaurant is in a small restaurant. Just minutes from the Vatican is Borghiciana Pastificio Artigianale and the wide variety of savory and sweet dishes must be seen to be believed.

And after a day of sightseeing, there’s no better way to return to Rome Cavalieri, where the Dolce Vita is very vibrant and thriving.
