In the very heart of Rome, just nearby the vibrant Piazza Navona, there is a world-wide 5-star deluxe celebrated Hotel, New Entry 2010 of the prestigious “family” Relais & Chateaux. From its astonishing vine-covered façade, this magnificent “maison” will immerse you in a world of charm, few steps away from the Pantheon, The Spanish Steps and St. Peter’s Church:an ideal base to experience the elegance of Rome.
“Created” and started up in 1963 by Spartaco Vannoni (1922-1980), the Bio Hotel Raphaël is a real museum of art: paintings, litographs, sculptures, antiquarian artefacts and a valuable collection of Picasso ceramics and Mayan art may be seen throughout the lobby.
Overlooking the roofs, Bramante Terrace and Mater Terrae Restaurant are waiting for you to enjoy a gastronomic cuisine while contemplating the magnificent view of the eternal city.
Our organic, vegetarian and vegan restaurant Mataer Terrae welcomes you! Have you read “vegetarian” and you are not inspired? Don’t worry about it, we will not fill your plate with tofu or seaweed! We will instead delight your palate with natural seasonal products and unique recipes based on art, creativity and innovation!
Adorned with ivy and famous for being where Julia Roberts stayed while filming Eat, Pray, Love, this classy hotel is tucked away behind Piazza Navona. Its small but perfectly-formed terrace overlooks the iconic rooftops of Rome’s historic centre.
Waiters in white ties will treat you to complimentary mini sandwiches as you sip your prosecco at this romantic, peaceful spot. Be warned, though: here, a spritz is topped up with the finest French champagne, and it isn’t cheap.
