With its chic new spots and cinematic metropolis, this is one of the best Italian Cities and is more exciting than ever.
In Italy’s Eternal City, everything that once was old, is new again. On the past two years, we have seen the rebirth of three of Rome’s most iconic landmarks: the Colosseum, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain.
You’re probably asking yourself, where to stay in Italy. Let us help! The answer is: Hotel Eden.
It was acquired by Dorchester Collection, in 2013. This historic property, with a former mansion, situated in the gardens by Villa Borghese, is emerging from a dramatic renovation.
There are 98 restored guestrooms and suites, redesigned restaurants and a new spa. Located in the heart of the old city of Rome, Hotel Eden is just a short stroll from the legendary Spanish Steps.
Now that you have a place to sleep, you need to know where to eat.
Our suggestion is Pipero Roma. Alessandro Pipero is one of the best figures in the Italain cooking scenario. He is leading this Michelin-starred restaurant and designed himself the chic contemporary interiors.
The next question is “where to shop?”. Which means it’s time to talk about Red Valentino, an Italian Fashion House.
The Paris-based interior designer India Mahdavi was asked to redesign the boutique for the contemporary women’s brand, located along the historic shopping street of Via del Babuino. As the result, we can see that the rosy-pink palette and a myriad of textures such as brass, enameled ceramic, velvet, and terrazzo stone, highlighted her iconic Charlotte chairs and sofas.
Last but not least, we have to suggest you what to do in Italy! As you probably have heard before, if you’re going to Rome, you must visit the Colosseum. Its construction has begun in A.D. 72 and it remains on the top of the largest amphitheaters ever built.
For an extra treat, pair your visit with a sunset meal at Aroma, a Michelin-starred restaurant located in the 17th century Palazzo Manfredi. It has breathtaking views over the Colosseum from the east!
