Echoes of ancient chariots rise from the Colosseum, which appears within arm?s reach of Hotel Palazzo Manfredi. (A gladiator school once stood outside the hotel?s door.) Yet this 16th-century palazzo dazzles with more than just its jaw-dropping views. The 14 rooms and suites fuse Palladian wallpaper, faux fur, Roman busts and eel skin?topped tables to surprisingly successful effect; windows overlooking the monument are a must. Sip a Bellini in the bar before slipping behind a plate of lobster medallions on the Aroma restaurant terrace. The concierge can arrange private tours with the city?s top guides.
Hotel TipTake the house Lamborghini out for a spin; you can even reserve it for a day trip to the Umbrian hill town of Orvieto or the Frascati wine region.
