What kind of traveler would like this trip?
Anybody who wants to eat their face off.
What do you recommended to AFAR Travelers looking to go there?
For some crazy views of the city, stay at the Hassler. It’s perched at the top of the Spanish steps. For something plush, stylish, and quiet, I’d vote D.O.M., a newish boutique with some really sick rooms. The TV is built into the mirror and room 8 has a giant free-standing tub. The bar downstairs attract a really chic crowd (and serves some killer negronis…).
What surprised you most about this trip?
I had forgotten how walkable it is, especially from the D.O.M. Everything I wanted to hit up was about a 30 minute trek from there and you pass a million gorgeous ruins on the way (of course). My iPhone logged more than six miles my last day there and it died in the afternoon.
Sonoma this weekend. Vegas next month to get in some trouble. And Charleston in March for our next AFAR Experiences trip (Are you coming yet? WhyTF not?)
