After the Sights, Relax in Comfort while Still Immersed in History with this fantastic holiday!
Want to warm up your winter and spice up your stay in the Eternal City? Then the Donna Camilla Savelli Hotel is definitely for you! For starters, the location is sizzling with wow factor – set in a renovated 17th century convent (the hotel’s Baroque interior was designed by Francesco Borromini and there is something very romantic about strolling across the secluded cloister, gazing at the stars). Another big plus is that the retreat is slap bang in the heart of Rome, located in the hip hustle and bustle of Trastevere and the Donna Camilla Savelli, while tucked away in a peaceful spot at the foot of the Gianicolo Hill, is still within easy walking distance to the Vatican.
Trastevere is one of those unique places in Rome that is revered across the city as the crème de la crème of neighbourhoods. The leafy southwest district has been home to everyone from Julius Caesar and Jewish traders, to Italian countesses. Walking along the medieval streets you will enter a dusky pink world made up of authentic Italian character with a fiery kick; labyrinth streets lead onto piazzas fringed with restaurants, churches and steep steps that spiral up to an untouched kingdom and musicians sing folk songs in Old Italian dialect, not even the Romans can understand.The food is out of this world, and so affordable you will surely look twice when you see the bill!
While Trastevere smoulders, Gianicolo Hill is the theatre of bloody fights between the troops of the Roman Republic, led by Giuseppe Garibaldi, and the French troops who attacked Rome in order to restore the power of the Pope. Marvel at the statue of Garibaldi and find epic views of Rome, continue to the private villas where the sounds of Frank Sinarata drift down from the gardens.
If you want to mingle with the locals, walk along the west bank of the Tiber for some buzzing atmosphere at the bars and markets that line the river. This is always a popular place to cut loose and to see the red-robed monks who stand amidst the crowd like spiritual beacons.
