Rome – the eternal City

Hotel and location – Rome

Our hotel Hotel Ponte Siste Roma is located in the heart of Rome where history is at every corner. We cannot be more conveniently located! The Old Town’s narrow cobbled streets will lead you on your conquest of the Roman territory. Shopping enthusiasts will appreciate the luxury boutiques and bargain shops of the close by Via Giulia, while culture lovers will be stunned by countless historical monuments, ranging from the Roman Empire to 19th century baroque buildings.

The Tiber River, which can be admired from the hotel’s roof terrace, as well as from some of the rooms and suites, is just around the corner. By crossing the pedestrian Ponte Sisto Bridge you will find yourself in the traditional Trastevere district with its wide range of bars and dining venues. Trastevere is an excellent choice for an “aperitivo” to enjoy the classic charm of the area, or even to spend a night out in Rome. Main roman monuments nearby, Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Opera House, National Roman Museum and Baths of Diocletian.

Hotel Ponte Siste is 15 minutes from Termini Station which is well connected to the Leonardo da Vinci Airport trough train service – only 30 minutes.
