Rich and sumptuous, nostalgic and retro, romantic and picturesque: whichever Roman soul you seek, at the Hotel Siena you will find yourself quite literally at its heart, surrounded by all that this spectacular city has to offer.
PIAZZA DI SPAGNA AND THE SPANISH STEPS - 100 M
Piazza di Spagna is perhaps one of the world's most famous squares. In the shadow of the Trinità dei Monti, the delicate stairway that has fascinated artists and authors throughout the ages, from British poets to Woody Allen, unwinds.
TREVI FOUNTAIN - 150 M
Who could forget blonde bombshell Anita Ekberg in Fellini's La Dolce Vita, emerging from the crystal-clear waters of the Trevi Fountain, one of the most beautiful expressions of Italian Baroque? This grandiose creation by Nicola Salvi dates back to 1735, and is still visited daily by thousands of tourists, who come to throw in a coin for luck, in the hope of returning to the capital soon.
PANTHEON - 700 M
This stunning monument is one of Rome's finest, embellished with statues of ancient Roman gods on the outside (hence the name Pantheon), while inside you'll find the tombs of famous names, from Italian royalty to Raphael.
GALLERIA BORGHESE - 500 M
This magnificent, elaborate palace belonging to the powerful Borghese family houses an extraordinary art collection, including internationally renowned works such as Canova's Paolina Borghese and Bernini's Apollo and Daphne, as well as other pieces by Raphael, Caravaggio and Titian.
SCUDERIE DEL QUIRINALE - 700 M
Today one of Rome's most famous exhibition spaces, the Scuderie (or Stables), with the Palazzo del Quirinale and the Palazzo della Consulta, border the piazza on which the statues of the Dioscuri and the Augustus Mausoleum obelisk stand. Three thousand square metres dedicated to Italy's biggest art events.
PIAZZA VENEZIA AND VITTORIANO - 1 KM
One of the Capital's most magnificent and suggestive squares, Piazza Venezia is dominated by the Vittoriano - the monument dedicated to Vittorio Emanuele II - and the Altare della Patria, which houses the Tomb of the Unknown soldier, symbol of all those who have fallen unnamed on the battlefield.
PIAZZA NAVONA - 1 KM/strong>
With its ostentatious palazzos, cafés and restaurants for outdoor dining and beautiful fountains - including Bernini's Quattro Fiumi (Four Rivers) - Piazza Navona is one of Rome's most popular locations. The piazza is also overlooked by The Church of Saint Agnes in Agone, whose Borromini façade is one of the finest examples of Baroque art in Rome.
BASILICA DI SAN PIETRO - 1 KM
Twenty-two thousand square metres, 45 altars, 11 chapels, - one of the world's greatest religious complexes, treasured in Italy and worldwide. Here you'll find works of unrivalled beauty, including Michelangelo's Pietà and Bernini's Chair of Saint Peter.
CASTEL SANT'ANGELO - 1 KM
Once the Mausoleum of Hadrian, Castel Sant’Angelo has changed function more than once: from staging area for war, to papal residence and prison, the place where famous names such as Benvenuto Cellini, Giordano Bruno and Cagliostro were jailed.
Shopping in Rome is a temptation to be succumbed to.
