After exploring the loveable district of Trastevere, guests can then traverse the Tiber over the bridge Ponte Sisto and make their way to the bustling square of Campo de Fiori near where Julius Caesar was murdered. A popular area with the local young Romans, this area is also full of bars and restaurants to experience the atmosphere of Rome. Guests can then continue on to the most ancient popular monument in Rome – the Pantheon completed in 126AD.
Just around the corner, guests can see masterpieces of Caravaggio in the Church of S. Luigi dei Francesi and then rest sipping a glass of wine on the most famous square of Rome – Piazza Navona. By this stage, guests are also not far from the Trevi Fountain – particular romantic and spectacular when viewed at night with its fantastic lighting.
Of course, no visit to Rome can be complete without a visit to the Vatican and the Basilica of St Peter or the Sistine Chapel in particular. Fortunately for the guests to Hotel Santa Maria, these two are also within walking distance from us as well!
