24 HOURS IN ROME
A journey into the past—historic Rome is a mix of hauntingly ancient ruins, awe-inspiring art and vibrant street life. Italy’s hot-blooded capital is one of the world’s most romantic and inspiring cities. Lap up the dolce vita lifestyle while gorging on art and culture, people-watch on the piazzas and feast like a Roman by finishing off your visit with gelato and a shot of un caffè. Never say espresso.
First developed in the 7th century BC and now an impressive sprawl of ruins, the Roman Forum was ancient Rome's showpiece centre—a grandiose district of temples, basilicas and vibrant public spaces. The Colosseum, Rome’s great gladiatorial arena was inaugurated in AD 80 and is the most thrilling of the city's ancient sights.
The fame of the Sistine Chapel lies mainly in the frescos that decorate the interior—most particularly the Sistine Chapel ceiling and The Last Judgment by Michelangelo. Michelangelo worked on several projects in Rome including the massive marble sculpture of Moses in the Church of San Pietro in Vincoli.
Villa Spalletti Trivelli's cuisine draws heavily from local Italian tradition—offering simple yet delicious selection of salads and exquisite homemade pasta dishes using the Spalletti Trivelli family’s organic Pomario olive oil.
Indulge on favorites like Spinach and Ricotta with Butter and Sage or Penne with Genoese Basil Pesto. Save room for homemade gelato.
Secreted away in the heart of Rome or sprawled across hilltops outside of town, Rome’s gardens are a fragrant oasis with ancient statuary and fountains. Dating back to 1564, The Gardens of the Villa Medici are cut into a stony hillside configured of multiple terraces with pomegranate, orange and lemon trees.
Opened in 1880, Teatro dell'Opera di Roma is well-known for its legendary acoustics. The outdoor theatre at the Baths of Caracalla, with the Roman ruins as the backdrop, is the venue for the opera company's summertime presentations in Rome.
The exclusive rooftop of Villa Spalletti Trivelli has undergone a complete transformation to become a sanctuary to enjoy throughout the day and into the evening. Hotel guests are greeted by a complimentary bar with a range of classic spirits, wines and Prosecco to sip while enjoying the view of ancient Rome and the surrounding hillsides. Need a refresher? Cold dishes offered include Prosciutto and Melon.
Villa Spalletti Trivelli was built by the widow of Count Venceslao Spalletti Trivelli—Senator of the Kingdom of Italy. The aristocratic family's century-old, opulent city retreat awaits your arrival.
Unique among the historic residences—the discreet and intimate luxury villa hotel includes refined drawing rooms furnished with genuine antiques.
Enjoy sumptuous rooms with every comfort and views over the private gardens of the villa. We recommend the Grand Deluxe Suites with their soothing color scheme and styling blended with both antique and modern elements.
Luxurious oversized marble bathrooms with separate bathtub and shower include organic bath sets.
