Rome Cavalieri, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts

Via Alberto Cadlolo, 101, 00136 Roma RM, Italy

The Rome Cavalieri, like the Hassler and St. Regis, is synonymous with five-star luxury in Rome. The hotel, opened in the 1960s, channels a Versailles-meets–Dolce Vita vibe, and given its unbridled opulence, it’s a top destination for honeymooners and jet-setters seeking the ultimate comforts. Its location atop Montemario, a hillside residential district north of the Vatican, offers spectacular views of the city from various terraced levels and many of the rooms. The very location, affording such panoramas, is also a drawback for travelers wishing to be in the thick of it all, so the Rome Cavalieri is best suited to those who relish spending significant time in the hotel rather than out on the town.

There are plenty of appealing amenities for guests who choose to stick around the property. The outdoor pools, the finest in Rome, are set amid lush gardens. The pool area doubles as a sort of private club for local elite and is ripe for Italian athlete and celebrity sightings. Back inside, the lobby and rooms are sumptuously furnished and feature antiques and original works of art.

Art Hotels: Rome Cavalieri

by Jocelyn C. Zuckerman The art collection of Angelo Guido Terruzzi, owner of the Rome Cavalieri, has been valued at $700 million; the Old Masters in the hotel’s public spaces alone suggest that figure may be an underestimate. Stunners range from landscapes by 18th-century artist Giuseppe Zais to a clutch of Empire bronzes and Andy Warhol’s cheeky dollar-sign series.


Lots of Shopping!!! Best Restaurant I have ever been to is La Pergola overlooking all of Rome!! The chef is one of the best in the world.. Make reservations months in advance!
