Art Treasures of Rome with the Splendide Royal Palace Hotel

March 6, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Hotel Splendide Royal RomeThe dollar's rise from the abyss, coupled with dramatically falling airfares, means a jaunt to Europe could be in the cards this spring. Hit up the Eternal City in the springtime and you can experience Easter at St. Peter's. The sidewalk cafes come alive, and moreover, Rome is simply brimming with artistic treasures to be discovered-- from ancient Rome to the present. (For a "mini Grand Tour of Rome's art treasures," click here.) Check into the luxurious Hotel Splendide Royal-- an authentic 19th century palace morphed into five-star hotel-- and you'll be just a stroll away from the famed Via Veneto. If you can tear yourself away from your swanky digs (think Baroque decor, fine antiques, marble bathrooms, and terraces with sweeping views over the city and the gardens of Villa Borghese), you'll find the city's arts and culture at your doorstep. In fact, the hotel has put together a package so you can experience a fabulous exhibition at the Art Gallery "Complesso del Vittoriano" entitled "Giotto 1267-1337 La rinascita della pittura in Italia." With the Splendide Giotto package, you'll get two nights accommodation, free tickets to the gallery, buffet breakfast, and a panoramic dinner at the Mirabelle Restaurant.
