One of Rome's most emblematic streets is Via Veneto, made famous by director Federico Fellini in the classic 1960 film La Dolce Vita. Lined with upscale shops, the street is also home to the Café de Paris and Harry's Bar. While visiting the Eternal City, why not stay in the center of the action and sleep on the Via Veneto? The five-star Regina Hotel Baglioni is the ideal jumping off point for discovering Rome's art and culture. Just a stone's throw from the Villa Borghese, Piazza di Spagna and Via Condotti, this luxurious hotel is a favorite meeting place of the international jet-set.
The hotel has an excellent selection of rooms in original Art Deco style. The 39 Superior Rooms are appointed with antique furniture, rich brocades and precious Murano hand-blown chandeliers. The 46 Deluxe Rooms are a mix of styles; some are traditional with antique décor, precious silk tapestry, damask and Murano crystal chandeliers, while others offer a more innovative design, defined by fine marble floors and original Art Deco furniture. Some have private balconies overlooking the Via Veneto. The 18 Grand Deluxe Rooms feature tapestries in refined combination of colors, precious fabrics, Murano hand-blown chandeliers, original furniture and marble floors. All bathrooms are designed in elegant marble, and all rooms are equipped with free high-speed Internet access.
After a day of taking in the sights, relax with a spa treatment at the hotel's Tempio della Salute. Then enjoy refined Mediterranean dishes at the Brunello Lounge & Restaurant, while sipping innovative cocktails and people-watching on the Via Veneto.
