A vacation to the enchanting city of Rome, Italy is an experience everyone should have at least once in their lifetime. With its unique blend of culture, art, architecture, history, religion, and food, this luxury destination is not to be missed. One of the best places to experience the true essence of Rome is Piazza del Popolo. Designed and built between 1811 and 1822, the piazza is filled with beautiful sights and centrally located to some of Rome’s other famous landmarks. In the center of Piazza del Popolo sits the Flaminio Obelisk which was brought to Rome in 10BC. The piazza is also home to the twin churches: Santa Maria in Montesanto (1679) and Santa Maria del Miracoli (1685). Fountains abound in the piazza, not the least of which is the recognizable Fountain of Neptune.
From Piazza del Popolo, it is a short walk down Via Del Babuino to Piazza di Spagna and the base of the Spanish steps. This pedestrian-friendly thoroughfare winds through one of the most charming neighborhoods in Rome, filled with historic monuments not to be missed on a vacation to the city. Seated directly on Via Del Babuino, just steps from Piazza del Popolo, is the incomparable Hotel de Russie.
