Welcome To Rome

Welcome to InterContinental De La Ville Roma. We are located in the heart of the Eternal City at the top of the Spanish Steps, surrounded by 3,000 years of history. My team and I are here to assist you, and to make your stay a memorable one.

LOCAL ESSENTIALS

THE PERFECT DAY

MORNING

First, take a taxi to Vatican City. Try to be at the Vatican Museum entrance by 8.45am, when it opens. Please note that entrance for individuals does not start until 10am. The main attractions are the Raphael Rooms, and even more importantly, the Sistine Chapel. Admire Michelangelo's ceiling, one of the most spectacular works of art in the world. If you have the stamina, take in the colourful frescoes of the Raphael Rooms and the Borgia Apartments. From there, make your way on foot to Castel Sant' Angelo, a residence used by the Popes in difficult times. Don't miss the wonderful views over Rome or the narrow passageway used by the Popes as an escape route from the Vatican. Next, on to St Peter's Basilica. On Via della Conciliazione, cross St Peter's Square and walk through the imposing Bernini colonnade. Then, if you're game for more, go on to the Papal tombs and the 13th century bronze statue of St Peter, and Michelangelo's most important masterpiece: La Pieta.

AFTERNOON

After a short siesta, take a stroll in the city centre. Going out of the InterContinental De La Ville, turn right along Via Trinita dei Monti to Pincio Hill, where you can enjoy marvellous views over Rome. Go further along Viale Gabriele d'Annunzio to Piazza del Popolo, marked by an obelisk brought by Augustus after he conquered Egypt. Visit the baroque church of Santa Maria del Popolo. Then, shop your way down to the Via del Corso. At Largo Goldoni, turn left on the famous Via Condotti, the Fifth Avenue of Rome. Have a drink at the fashionable Antico Caffe Greco, the famous haunt of writers, artists and intellectuals in the 19th century. Continue your shopping in this elegant and incredibly crowded area. It is lined with Rome's most fashionable designer boutiques. Stop in the Piazza di Spagna and take your time to admire Bernini's La Barcaccia fountain. The Spanish Steps should be just in front of you. Either walk up the stairs, lined with beautiful azaleas during Spring, or take the elevator on the left-hand side of the square to the Piazza Trinita dei Monti. You have only to walk a few metres to the right and you'll be back at the InterContinental De La Ville.

EVENING

Rome is incredibly beautiful at night with its illuminated monuments and sites. And there are literally dozens of outstanding restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel, plus piano bars and nightclubs. Of course, our concierge will be more than pleased to give you the right suggestions for a memorable evening in the Eternal City.

INSIDER TIPS

HOSPITAL FIRST AID SERVICE

The service in Italian Hospitals is usually free of charge and medical services in Italy are considered to be some of the best in Europe. However , you may be required to queue depending on the level of emergency and don't forget to take a form of identification with you. Please also note that due to new regulations, you may be required to could be required to pay a fee according to the level of emergency.


METRO

The subway system (Metropolitana) is simple and cheap, with two fast lines that intersect at the Termini train station. One ticket is 1,50 Euro and is valid for any journey within 100 minutes. Please note it can be used only once for the Metro during this time, but you can use it to catch buses for the remaining time. Head for the first or last compartments as they are generally the least crowded.


RESTAURANTS IN ROME

Restaurants are generally open noon-3pm and 8-11pm, and often much later. The busiest times tend to be 1-1.30 pm for lunch and 9-9.30pm for dinner. As restaurants are very busy for dinner, it's best to book in advance.
