    A Luxury Guide to Rome

    Why not tie in a visit to one of Europe’s finest cities with one of sport’s most iconic events
    3 May, 2023

    As one of the most historically and culturally relevant cities in Europe, Rome is a must-visit destination that is best enjoyed in absolute luxury.

    The legend says that it was founded in 753 BC by Romulus and Remus – twins who had been raised by wolves – and as one of the first civilized cities in Europe, it helped shape the world we live in today.

    In Rome, you’ll find a blend of ancient history and modern luxury and we’ve put together a city guide which includes some of our favourite restaurants, hotels and experiences.

    Where to stay

    Among our favourite places to stay in Rome is the iconic Hotel Eden. Part of the Dorchester Collection, the Eden embodies the authentic Roman spirit and provides an immaculate service in a warm, welcoming, yet exclusive manner.

    Located in the heart of Rome, and bearing a multitude of stories of this historic capital, the Eden gives guests a combination of classical Italian design and modern, state-of-the-art amenities and facilities. Its Michelin-starred restaurant, La Terrazza, allows diners to gaze over stunning Roman views, while sampling some of the best cuisine to be found in the city.

    Where to eat

    It’s no secret that Rome has an exquisite culinary scene, consisting of an array of luxury restaurants, from quaint, family-run hidden gems to grand, Michelin-starred establishments. Located within the Rome Cavalieri Hotel is La Pergola, renowned for its three Michelin stars, art-deco elegance and views of the Vatican.

    Il Convivio Troiani is another stunning option when it comes to fine dining in the Eternal City, offering guests traditional, regional, two Michelin-starred cuisine in a cosy environment, while All’Oro is perfect if you want incredible Italian food with a modern twist. Situated within a stunning 18th-century Roman building, All’Oro epitomises the city’s class and elegance.

    What to Do

    Famous landmarks and ancient ruins populate the city and no visit is complete without seeing sites such as the Vatican, Colosseum, Sistine Chapel and the Pantheon. You’ll also be spoiled for choice when it comes to cultural evening experiences.

    Elegant opera houses showcase nightly classical entertainment, while trendy aperitivo bars, including Ai Tre Scalini and Salotto 42, provide stylish and exclusive pre- and post-show entertainment. Rome is also world famous for its designer shopping offerings, with Via Condotti being the perfect street to amble along while browsing the biggest Italian fashion brands.

    The Ryder Cup

    At Blend Group, we’re always looking for opportunities to combine visiting the best locations on the planet, in the most luxury manner possible, with enjoying world-class sporting events. This year, at the end of September, Rome hosts the 44th Ryder Cup between Europe and the USA, at the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club.

    The eyes of the world will be on this event like never before, following the USAs comfortable victory last time round, as well as the controversies associated with the recent arrival of the Saudi Arabian-backed LIV Tour.

    If you’d like to enquire into a bespoke Roman experience, with the possible inclusion of the best Ryder Cup hospitality packages available, please get in touch with us here. We’d absolutely love to put together an individual package just for you which includes all of your accommodation and travel requirements, as well as any additional experiences you want to enjoy.
