On your comfy drive from the airport to the hotel, prepare to spoil your senses with a multitude of Italian delights that begin in Rome, a city that celebrates over 2,500 years of history. At L’Albergo Cesari, a delightful boutique hotel, you’ll be a hop, skip and leisurely stroll to extraordinary monuments like the Trevi fountain and Pantheon Dome. Before your afternoon guided tour, unwind in your suite or enjoy an espresso on the hotel’s garden rooftop to steal a panoramic view of the immense historical heritage that highlights the city.
A friendly expert will accompany you through the Vatican where some of the most influential names in Italian art are represented including Michelangelo, Botticelli and Signorelli. A holy see of renaissance, classical and contemporary works, the Vatican exhibits some of the greatest masterpieces ever realized. In Saint Peter's Basilica, see beautiful relic sculptures of saints and angels and learn the history of Christianity. Stare up in awe at Michelangelo’s massive dome structure that towers above Saint Peters shrine. Around the altar, behold the stunning Baldacchino, four large bronze canopies by Bernini.
You’ll have the rest of the afternoon and evening free to explore the city. Head back to the hotel and freshen up before taking a walk over to Via del Corso and Via del Tritone, lively streets filled with stores and located extremely close to your hotel. You can shop for the perfect trinket so you remember your visit to Rome.
For dinner, treat yourself to an evening of Roman fare at one of the many restaurants around Piazza della Rotonda. The vibrant plaza is filled with outdoor cafes and restaurants and home to the magnificent Pantheon Dome, one of the largest dome in the world. Watch the square come to life between divine bites of Saltimbocca alla Romana, tender mouthwatering veal scallops cooked with white wine, sage and seasoning and then topped with prosciutto. After a scrumptious dinner, grab a cup of gelato before your short stroll back to the hotel and drift off to sleep in pure contentment.
