Visitors have flocked to Rome, the 'Eternal City', since the Middle Ages, when pilgrims journeyed to the centre of Catholicism. More recent travellers have been captivated by the city's ancient sites, its rich heritage as headquarters of the Roman Empire, and the legacy of the great Renaissance artists. And the typically sunny weather doesn't hurt. For a major capital city, there are surprisingly few purpose-built hotels, but there is plenty of accommodation to suit all tastes. Most of the best places to stay in Rome are housed in old buildings: mansions, palazzi, villas. Take your pick, whether that's one of our recommended hotels or an apartment suggested by our online partner, booking.com.
If it's your first visit to Rome then you'll be kept busy with the headline sights. Rome isn't just the capital of Italy and the historic heart of the Roman Empire, it's also home of the Vatican. So, as well as the art, architecture and ruins, Rome bursts with religious art, relics and architecture - not least of all St. Peter's and the Vatican.
Each of these elements is at its most glorious in Rome:
- Architecturally, the Pantheon is one of the world's best preserved ancient monuments - it's around 2000 years old - an amazing, and very beautiful, feat of engineering.
- And the Colosseum is a thrilling sight, impressive for its ability to seat 50,000 spectators and fearsome for its bloody history;
- and the Roman Forum was a showpiece for the age.
Rome has long been the hub of the art world as well, there are pristine classical statues, incredible Renaissance frescoes, graceful fountains by the best sculptors of the day, and all of it is out on the streets.
One of the most celebrated of Rome's exquisite piazzas is the Piazza Navona, which has everything - Baroque architecture, three ornate fountains, wonderful cafes and restaurants and plenty of street artists and hawkers - this spot used to be Rome's main market!
Then there's the museums, both art and historic, including the Vatican Museums and the Museo e Galleria Borghese, home to two of the world's most incredible art collections. And the Capitoline Museums, dating from 1471, and home to some of the world's best known works of sculpture. If you're getting the sense of the words 'world's best' and 'world's greatest' being overused here, rest assured, it's not unwarranted.
And of course you need to make sure you throw your three coins into the glorious Trevi fountain and wish to return... If you threw your three coins in the fountain and you're back, take some time to let Rome infuse into your system. Book a room in one of our recommendations for the best places to stay in Rome, spend longer over piazza cafe stops and make sure you eat and drink well! You might also want to make time to explore some of the old roads in and out of Rome, or see some of the less well known museums and galleries - and there's a long list to choose from!
For a Special Occasion
- Five minutes from the Trevi Fountain, the Villa Spalletti Trivelli is a noble Roman townhouse renovated to perfection. The 12 rooms are classical, tranquil and aristocratic, and you're in a beautiful neighbourhood, surrounded by lush gardens.
- If Baroque flamboyance and lavish drapery are your thing head for the San Anselmo in the smart Aventine district.
- Five star luxury at the Eden includes a rooftop garden and a long history of celebrity guests.
- Suite Sistina's ten rooms are perfect for honeymooners, with their oversized, glass sided showers, luxurious bathtubs and giant round beds. You're also staying in a beautiful building just metres from the Spanish Steps.

- The Hotel de Russie, part of Rocco Forte's empire, is a contemporary city hotel in a great location with a glorious garden.
