Hotels in Rome offer luxurious accommodations in a locale nicknamed “The Eternal City”. Known for its historic sites, its architecture, its fountains, its museums, its festivals, its cuisine and its Catholicism, Rome has been a major human settlement for nearly 3,000 years. Some of Rome’s famous inventions include numerals, the newspaper, modern sewer systems, archways, air conditioning and surgical tools. Famous Roman inhabitants included Augustus, Julius Caesar and Vergil, to name a few. Plan to spend at least 3 days in Rome, and keep in mind that there are lots of tourists in the city, especially at the Vatican. Hotels in Rome are some of the best in Italy. Before we get to hotels in Rome, let’s take a look at some background information on the area to help you along the way.
The story of Romulus and Remus dates the founding of Rome to around 753 BC. Stretching across Europe and into northern Africa and the Middle East, the Roman Empire lasted from 27 BC to 1453 AD. During its time, the Roman Empire was arguably the world’s most influential. Some of the Roman Empire’s greatest emperors include Augustus, who transformed Rome from a republic to an empire, Trajan, who extended the empire’s boundaries to the east, and Marcus Aurelius, one of the most respected emperors in Roman history and a believer in Stoicism. On the flip-side, some of the Roman Empire’s worst emperors include Caligula, a cruel and unpredictable leader who allegedly had incestuous relations with his sister and cross-dressed, Nero, Caligula’s nephew who murdered his mother and is said to have played the fiddle while Rome burned, and Commodus, the blood-thirsty son of Marcus Aurelius who was assassinated at age 31. Today, remnants of the Roman Empire still stand, most notably the Colosseum, which was capable of seating 60,000 spectators.
Italy’s capital and a special commune, Rome has a population of over 2.8 million people. Located in central-west Italy along the Tiber River, Rome has within its limits Vatican City, which is the smallest country in the world. Rome enjoys a Mediterranean climate, with mild temperatures throughout the year. Summer high temperatures average in the mid-80s degrees Fahrenheit. On average, Rome hosts between 7 and 10 million tourists per year, who travel to see Rome’s historical architecture, art, natural beauty and villas. Major points of interest include Roman Forum, Pantheon, Trajan’s Market, Circus Maximus, Baths of Caracalla, Castel Sant’Angelo, Mausoleum of Augustus, Arca Pacis, Arch of Constantine, Pyramid of Cestius, Temple of Aesculapius, Trevi Fountain, talking statues of Rome, Piazza del Popolo, Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II, Parco della Musica, Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, Spanish Steps, Ostia Lido Beach, MAXXI and Olympic Stadium. Popular foods include Carbonara, Allesso di Bollito, or simmered beef dishes, Cacio e Pepe, Maritozzi, Porchetta, Pizza and Gelato, to name a few. Drinks include Vino Rosso, Prosecco, Negroni, Campari, Limoncello, Grappa and for happy hour, Apertivo.
