Every road should definitely lead to Rome

This eternal destination has been attracting visitors for thousands of years. The vivid capital of Italy is still one of the most exciting and romantic destinations in the world. Amidst the historical monuments and busy streets, you'll find the luxurious retreat Aldrovandi Villa Borghese. This hotel offers the unique combination of the big city experience and sightseeing, with an outdoor swimming pool in the garden and a spa in the main building. After a long day tackling all the interesting sites in the sizzling Roman heat, the outdoor pool area and the spa are a real asset, making Aldrovandi an excellent summer-holiday choice

Aldrovandi Villa Borghese

Housed in a 19th century villa, formerly a covent and one-time ladies’ college, it holds a traditional and historical atmosphere. The hotel is filled with marble and parquetry, giving the villa a grandiose feeling. Just as impressive are the lush gardens, lit by gas lamps, with hedges trimmed into perfect spheres.

It has hosted everything from European aristocracy, international diplomats and politicians, as well as travel-loving visitors.

You’ll find Aldrovandi Villa Borghese superbly located within Rome's most upscale residential area Pinciano, between the green Borghese gardens and the historical reminiscences of Valle Giulia and the Borghese Gallery. Aldrovandi Villa Borghese is within walking distance from extraordinary venues as the Spanish Steps and Via Veneto. The villa gives you a unique blend of rich heritage, exciting activities, fashion, culture and extraordinary culinary experiences right at your fingertips.

The 103 guest rooms are light-filled, and simply furnished with marble tables, comfortable beds and lamps decorated with cherubins. From the moment you walk into the room you are surrounded by Italian decoration and history. There’s room for a desk, tea and coffee facilities and plenty of free bottled water. Situated on the top floor you’ll find the spacious Royal Suite. It offers an astonishing living room area, and overlooks two sides of the city - the Borghese gardens and the private park and swimming pool.

The Aldrovandi is perfectly located in Borghese Garden, the green lung of Rome. Some of the city's premier museums, such as the National Gallery of Modern Art and the Borghese Gallery, are within walking distance.

The villa has a perfect central location, and the green and tranquil area of the garden offers a quiet alternative to the bustling city life. Take a bath in the clear-blue heated pool, or enjoy hours underneath the italian sun.

Start your day breathing in the fresh air with a stroll in the green heart of Rome, and gather your loved ones to enjoy a picnic in the park. Rent a bicycle for memorable rides, or visit the bioparco where thousands of different animal species live.

Pamper yourself with the calming atmosphere of The Aldrovandi’s Mytha SPA in the main building with thalasso mini-pool, sauna and steam baths. Traditionalists will appreciate the Crème de La Mer-based treatments, and there is also a Technogym fitness centre. In-room massages and treatments are available on request. This might just make the perfect ending to a day of strolling the busy streets of Rome.

The hotel truly impresses with its impeccable culinary level. Fuel yourself before an exciting day with The Aldrovandi’s signature buffet breakfast served in Sala Verde.

The American Bar offers some of the best cocktails in Rome, served in a chic atmosphere. An Aperitivo in the Garden Bar, or a romantic candle lit dinner in the marvelous oasis of their Garden Restaurant is in addition definitely something to look forward to.
