Stay in our Holiday Inn Express® Rome hotels to explore the treasures of Italy’s historic capital. In the centro storico, the ancient heart of the city, you can follow in Julius Caesar’s footsteps in the crumbling Forum or sip an espresso with the locals at Caffè Sant’Eustachio.
As a guest of our hotels in Rome, you’ll have easy access to both ancient and modern attractions. Have your photo taken with costumed gladiators in the Colosseum, where real-life gladiators once fought to the death. The riches of the Vatican include a double dose of Michelangelo’s most iconic artworks: the meltingly lovely Pietà sculpture in St. Peter’s Basilica and the painted ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, where Adam stretches his fingers towards God. (Dodge the Vatican’s long entry lines by visiting at lunchtime.) Entry to most of Rome’s temples and churches is free.
The Eternal City’s timeworn monuments anchor the city’s hot spots. The streets surrounding the handsomely preserved Pantheon are filled with restaurants and boutiques. At Piazza Navona, you can admire baroque churches and fountains, then pause for a bit of prime people-watching. Everyone, from jetsetters to local students, strolls through this square. Our Rome hotels are also near Trastevere, a medieval neighborhood with a percolating nightlife. Pick a homey trattoria along the cobblestoned streets and try Roman classics like braised artichokes and creamy fettuccini Alfredo. Romans eat dinner late, so make time for an afternoon gelato break to savor some of the world’s best ice cream.
