As a guest of our Holiday Inn® Rome hotels, it’s easy to explore Italy’s historic capital. With papal treasures, imposing ruins and baroque squares unfolding at every turn, the Eternal City is a living monument to the glory of ancient Rome.
Plunge into the city’s lively streetscape from our hotels in Rome, where candy-colored Vespas zip around cobbled alleyways. The massive Colosseum is a popular spot for family photos with costumed gladiators. In the neighboring Forum, crumbling columns evoke the days of Julius Caesar. Sunlight streams through the dome of the Pantheon just as it has since the second century A.D. The Vatican beckons with two iconic artworks by Michelangelo: the Pietà statue in St. Peter’s Basilica and the painted ceiling in the Sistine Chapel. The modern Metro threads its ways through archaeological ruins, delivering you to centuries-old sights like the Trevi Fountain. Toss a coin in the baroque fountain to ensure your return to Rome.
Relax into la dolce vita (“the sweet life”) when you stay in our hotels in Rome. It’s a short trip from our Rome hotels to Piazza Navona, the most beautiful square in the city’s centro storico (historic center). Here, students, priests and jetsetters alike gather for the traditional evening passeggiata (stroll). Our Rome hotels are also near Trastevere, a medieval neighborhood humming with restaurants and bars. Try original Roman dishes like fried artichokes and spaghetti alla carbonara, rich with bacon and eggs, in alfresco cafes on narrow cobblestone alleyways.
Book our Holiday Inn Rome hotels for sublime and simple pleasures all year round. Come in spring to enjoy the city’s colorful religious festivals, particularly around Holy Week. In summer, Rome’s historic ruins are dramatically spotlit.
