The Vatican is a recognised independent state under the sovereignty of the Holy See, where the pope of the Catholic Church reins as absolute monarch. With a surface area of just 0.44 km2, it is the smallest state in the world with a population of 824 in 2008. However, despite its small size, this country has its own printing press, which publishes works in several languages, and even has its own daily and weekly newspapers. It also has its own stamps and prints its own currency, which can be used throughout Italy. The Vatican is a special place in the city, but in the world as well. Its location on the Tiber, the river that runs through Rome, makes it one of the most magical places to visit. St. Peter's Basilica and its wonderful palaces and gardens make it a truly exceptional place.

Trevi Fountain

 

Trevi Fountain

Discover the Trevi Fountain, which is only a stone's throw from our hotel in the centre of Rome

It is the most famous fountain in Rome, which makes it a must-do! Built at the request of Pope Clement XII, it was completed in 1762. The origins of the Trevi Fountain date to 1453; it was the mouth of a Roman aqueduct that brought water from a spring built in 1453. According to tradition, you have to toss two coins over left shoulder into the fountain: one to make a wish and one to be sure you return to Rome. This fountain ‒ the biggest in the city ‒ is located near the Pantheon. It backs up to a palace that was once the residence of the Poli dukes and is now the Italian Polygraphic Institute. The arch behind it calls to mind the entrance to a temple. The Trevi Fountain was designed and built in honour of Neptune, the god of the seas. It is 20 metres wide and 26 metres tall; the fountain depicts Neptune on a chariot drawn by two horses and guided by tritons. From 9Hotel Cesàri, located on Via di Pietra, you can easily walk to the Trevi Fountain in a few minutes. Take advantage of a stay at our hotel to meander through the city and learn its secrets.

It is one of the greatest monuments in the Christian faith, with approximately 450 statues, 500 columns and 50 altars. It is also one of the most visited monuments in the world. Every Sunday, more than 150,000 believers attend mass in the square at St. Peter's Basilica. The tomb of one of Jesus's 12 apostles lies at the centre of the Basilica. He is regarded as the first Bishop of Rome. The Renaissance style of the basilica was transformed over the years by different popes. Beginning in the 17th century, the Baroque style emerged in Italy. Colours and decorative features changed, becoming more extravagant. The façade of the basilica is 45 metres high by 115 metres wide. Its cupola ‒ the tallest in the world ‒ is 136 metres high.

Pantheon

 

Pantheon

The Pantheon, the temple that became a church, on Piazza della Rotonda in Rome

It was a temple devoted to various divinities, especially Mars, the founder of Rome. It was restored and rebuilt after a fire in the early 2nd century. In 608, the pope received it as a gift and turned it into a Christian church, as it is today. One enters through a rectangular portico featuring 16 columns, then continues into a vast circular space under one of the most beautiful cupolas in the world. Continue gazing skyward to admire the details of the cupola and you just might get dizzy. The tomb of the celebrated painter Raphael is also inside the building.

Rome's Pantheon, a marvel you can explore just a few steps away from 9Hotel Cesàri.

It is exceptionally well preserved; its continued use helps ensure it stays in very good condition.

The staff at 9Hotel Cesàri are at your disposal to provide information, so don't way another day. Book your next stay.

Piazza Di Spagna

 

Piazza Di Spagna

Piazza di Spagna is a 10-minute walk from our hotel in Rome's historic centre

The square is very well known because Romans used to meet on its myriad steps. It is also quite close to another iconic destination in the city: the People's Square or 'Piazza del Popolo', created by Giuseppe Valadier in the late 18th century. This square is one of the largest city and was created precisely to give Rome more open space.

9 Hotel Cesàri is also a good starting point for visiting Villa Medicis

Valadier decided to retain a few essential features: the two churches at the entrance to Via del Corso, the Door of the People and the Central obelisk. Not far from Piazza di Spagna, you will find the Villa Medicis, which was built in the 1570s. It has also been home to the Academy of France since 1803. Under Louis XIV, this institution helped young French artists learn the traditions of Antiquity and the Renaissance.

Our staff can give you information about the various tours available, so don't hesitate to ask.

Piazza Navona

 

Piazza Navona

This square near the Pantheon was built over the ruins of the Stadium of Domitian, which dates to the 1st century. In fact, the square still has the exact shape of the stadium. At the time, it hosted athletics competitions, games and horse races. The square is accented with three beautiful fountains, the most famous of which is the 'Fountain of the Four Rivers' built by Bernini in 1650. It stands before Sant'Agnes Church. The statues in the fountain represent four rivers from four continents: The Nile for Africa, the Rio de la Plata for the Americas, the Ganges for Asia and the Danube for Europe. A majestic obelisk rises high from the centre. Piazza Navona is a must for every tourist in Rome. You will find many restaurants around it, along with shops and street vendors.

Piazza Venezia

 

Piazza Venezia

Piazza Venezia, near our hotel in Rome, is a sightseeing must during your visit to the capital

The monument that looms over this vast square is 'Il Vittoriano'; it was built for King Emmanuel II, the very first king of unified Italy. The gigantic white marble monument on Capitol Hill is a true symbol of the city, representing the unity of Italy. King Emmanuel II unified Italy after wars fought with Austria. There are many symbols of this unification. The 16 sculptures placed in the foreground represent all the regions of united Italy.
Its dimensions are impressive: 135 metres wide by 70 metres high, with numerous Corinthian columns and white marble staircases.
This monument has also harboured the tomb of an unknown soldier and an eternal flame since 1921. You can climb up to the top for a sublime panoramic view from the terrace.
It Vittoriano is an important symbol to which Italians are very attached. A modest palace was even relocated because it obstructed the view from Via del Corso.
