It's hard to imagine a more picture-perfect setting to celebrate New Year's Eve. Sitting atop the Spanish Steps with one of the best perches in Rome, the Hotel Hassler
has been recognized as the best hotel in the city by both Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler. (In fact, the Hassler
was voted Europe's best city hotel and the top hotel in Italy in T + L's "World's Best Awards 2008.) And its Michelin-starred Imago Restaurant offers panoramic views from the hotel's sixth floor. Imagine tucking into a decadent multi-course meal while gazing out over the Eternal City's sparkling lights. Here are some of the teasers from the menu: glass of Champagne with crispy finger food, Red mullet and sea scallop salad, Organic capon ravioli with black truffle, pear, and chestnut cream, Glazed venison saddle with dried fruit and Jerusalem artichoke puree... Book the "New Year's Eve Celebration"
package and you'll enjoy three nights accommodation, daily breakfast in Salone Eva, New Year's Eve dinner in Salone Eva (the meal at the panoramic resto is extra), and a special gift on New Year's Day. A priceless experience, for EUR 2,300 for two people.
