Known throughout the world as the Eternal City, Rome offers visitors an endless array of historical, cultural, and artistic experiences. Just beyond the hotel are several historic villas once occupied by the eminent noble houses of the Italian Peninsula. Villa Medici and Villa Borghese Pinciana are a short distance away, with Villa Borghese functioning as a respected art gallery, the Galleria Borghese. Guests can also stroll through the beautiful Borghese Gardens, which run adjacent to the gallery. The Historic Center of Rome, a section of the city jointly supervised by the Italian government and the Vatican, is close to the Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese too. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990, the Historic Center of Rome has a wealth of historical attractions for guests to visit. The Basilica of Saint Paul and the Sistine Chapel both occupy the Historic Center of Rome, as do many other historical structures like the Colosseum, the Pantheon, and the Roman Forum. Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese is a wonderful place to start any excursion into the Eternal City.
