Boasting three luxury venues in Rome, Hotel de Russie, Hotel de la Ville, and Rocco Forte House, guests can make an exquisite base to explore the Eternal City.
For those wanting to discover Rome on foot, then Hotel de la Ville is a perfect choice. Situated on the iconic Via Sistina overlooking Piazza di Spagna and Trinità dei Monti, the 18th-century Hotel de la Ville is right in the heart of this frenetic city. From here, guests can wander to the nearby Villa Borghese gardens, visit historical monuments and splurge at some of the finest boutiques in the area without ever being far from home.
Likewise, travellers can enjoy a warm welcome at the iconic Hotel de Russie. An oasis on the city’s Via del Babuino, guests are on the doorstep of Trastavere’s ancient rabbit warren of streets, the Sistine Chapel and some of the Roman Empire’s most imposing archaeological remains. After a long day exploring, Le Jardin de Russie, the hotel’s infamous in-house restaurant, and the lively Stravinskij Bar are great ways to relax.
Those seeking something even more discreet and exclusive, yet with all the intimacy and comfort of a private home, look no further than Rocco Forte House. Comprising five palatial apartments, Rocco Forte House offers an exclusive stay within an 18th-century palazzo right on the Piazza di Spagna. Boasting a stately roof terrace with panoramic views of the Spanish Steps and other magical sights of the bustling city, guests staying at Rocco Forte House have access to the spas, bars, and Fulvio Pierangelini restaurants of Rome’s leading hotels: Hotel de la Ville and Hotel de Russie.
With an interior design concept created by Tommaso Ziffer, state-of-the-art amenities and a house manager at the ready, these apartments offer travellers the next level of contemporary Roman living.
Rocco Forte Hotels are the perfect way to welcome yourself into this ancient cosmopolitan gem with historical landmarks on every corner, a buzzing restaurant and bar scene, picture-perfect piazzas, and more.
For another unforgettable Italian escape, head to Sicily to enjoy two of Italy’s most breathtaking coastlines. Offering sun, sea and a sensational taste of southern Italian life, Rocco Forte Hotels’ Villa Igiea in Palermo and Verdura Resort and Rocco Forte Private Villas in the south of Sicily are a great way to get to know this mythical region.
Starting at Villa Igiea, guests can explore the charm and beauty of Sicily’s capital with its stunning azure waters and views of Mount Pellegrino. Designed by Olga Polizzi in collaboration with Paolo Moschino, this turn-of-the-century palazzo sits in the heart of the seaside town that has long been a retreat for the rich and famous. With bustling markets, Baroque palaces, traditional eateries and cool bars, Palermo offers an unforgettable experience.
Heading further to Sicily’s south coast, relaxation is the order of the day. At Verdura, Resort guests can unwind and disconnect from the world in 230 hectares of manicured gardens with perfumed orchards, ancient olive groves, and endless sea views. Putting wellbeing at the forefront, Verdura Resort offers an array of profoundly enriching and luxurious experiences for mind, body and soul. From tennis courts, golf courses, water sports and yoga to a flagship spa, infinity pools and thalassotherapy, nothing has been overlooked. In fact, the hotel even boasts eco-architecture and organic produce grown on-site so that you can relax in the knowledge that you are being well taken care of.
In May 2021, Verdura Resort welcomed Rocco Forte Private Villas, the first 20 branded independent villas overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and the Sicilian countryside. Consisting of 3- and 4-bedroom villas, this latest offering from Rocco Forte aims to create a home away from home with its elegant interiors, peaceful courtyards and sun-dappled pools. From their hilltop spot, the new villas guarantee ultimate privacy and security for those who seek exclusive accommodation combined with the unique services that Verdura Resort offers.
Although the island life is all too tempting, Italy has something extraordinary to offer within each of its varied landscapes. Whether it’s Rocco Forte’s Hotel Savoy in Florence or Masseria Torre Maizza in Puglia, there’s joy to be found in every corner of the nation’s mainland.
Noted for its culture, Renaissance art and architecture, and monuments such as Ponte Vecchio, The Duomo, and Via de Tornabuoni, Florence is a must-see for anyone travelling to Tuscany. Hotel Savoy takes pride of place on the Piazza della Repubblica, amongst the city’s leading landmarks, to help you enjoy the best the city has to offer.
With in-house dining options from Fulvio Pierangelini and signature prints adorning the decor, this stylish hotel is ideal for perusing the city’s exquisite bistros and watching the world go by. Hotel Savoy also makes for a great base to explore the rest that Tuscany has to offer. Famous for its rolling hills, cypress-tree-lined vineyards and delectable food, this region is classical Italy at its finest.
Heading back south, Puglia is at the ‘heel’ of the Italian peninsula and offers rich, fertile lands and a stunning Adriatic coastline. Surrounded by ancient olive groves, the 16th century Masseria Torre Maizza is located in the most glamorous destination in the region.
Inspired by the sensational landscapes of Puglia and the ethos of Rocco Forte Hotels, it exquisitely blends local heritage with contemporary luxury and unparalleled service. From the stunning Olga Polizzi-designed rooms and suites to the romantic sunset rooftop bar and elegant restaurant overlooking the swimming pool, this hotel is a sanctuary in this pristine region. The resort features a 9-hole executive golf course, a private beach club and an indulgent spa.
If you prefer to stay active, then cycling tours through the rustic countryside are available. Exploring whitewashed hill towns, wild nature reserves and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Masseria Torre Maizza is a top choice for getting to know Puglia.
Every Rocco Forte Hotels’ suite is carefully conceived to give guests an extraordinary experience of the local area. Each suite is carefully designed by Olga Polizzi and inspired by its location, celebrating the history of the building, the culture of the city, or the distinguished guests who have resided at the property for an unforgettable stay.
