With its rich history, gorgeous architecture, and delicious cuisine, it’s no wonder Rome is called The Eternal City. A trip to Italy’s capital is a truly magical experience, whether you’re there to tour the ruins and museums, shop the boutiques on Via del Corso, or get your fill of cacio e pepe, Roman-style pizza, and carciofi alla Romana. Hotels are often the home base for travelers to the city, and there’s no shortage of accommodations that’ll have you living a life of luxury.
Thankfully, you don’t have to have an overflowing bank account to get a taste of the aforementioned grandeur. Even if you’re not staying at one of Rome’s most luxurious hotels, you can still experience the splendor by splurging on fabulous Italian cocktails in a decked out hotel bar. These eight luxury hotel bars are some of the best in the city, perfect for an early evening aperitivo or digestivo to punctuate a day of living la dolce vita.
