History, architecture, food, culture, Rome has it all. When deciding where to stay in Rome, it’s important to consider the neighbourhood first, then the accommodation itself second. The city is large and you want to make sure you’re located in an area that is near to public transportation, or that is within walking distance of major sites, restaurants and bars.
Aenea Superior Inn is not only located in a trendy neighbourhood of Rome, but the boutique hotel is exquisite. Traveling to Rome is the trip of a lifetime and in this article, I’ll breakdown the details about the Aenea Superior Inn, including details on the neighbourhood and features of the property.
Monti Neighbourhood is considered the bohemian, artsy enclave of Rome. Close to the main tourist areas and sites of Piazza Venezia, Colosseum, The Pantheon and Basilica di San Clemente, yet far enough away to retain its cool vibe. Monti isn’t putting on a show, and if you’re looking for a less touristy area, with numerous hidden gems, this is it.
Aenea Superior Inn is in an excellent location. In just a 15 minute walk, you will arrive at the Colosseum. A 20 minute walk will bring you to the Trevi Fountain, while 15 minutes away is the Piazza Venezia. If you’re feeling fit, the Vatican is about an hour walk away, or 35 minutes by metro or bus.
As an added bonus, Aenea Superior Inn is about 5 minutes from the Roma Termini train station. This is a great place to be as you can easily get to and from the city. Plus, there are numerous public buses that leave from the Roma Termini.
