Residenza di Ripetta is
the ideal base from which to explore the rich and lively heart of Rome.
The truly grandiose Piazza del Popolo is just metres from the hotel and boasts the Basilica di Santa Maria del Popolo which houses works by Pinturicchio, Rafael, Caravaggio and Bernini, and then there is the Ara Pacis museum with its new Richard Meier glass and travertine shell, not to mention the Spanish Steps which one reaches passing through the city’s greatest shopping area – via Condotti, via Borgogna and via Frattina. Rome is a city rife with fascinating history.
Strolling through the streets that go from being wide and grandiose to narrow and delightfully secretive, you can also see nature as it bursts through among the monuments, experience the sounds and smell the aromas of the open-air markets, and feel the friendliness of the people as they carry on with their business or greet you in a coffee shop!
