The upmarket neighbourhood of Rome’s city centre in which the high-end Hotel Villafranca Rome finds itself is not only on the metro line but is also just on the edge of the old historical city walls, meaning that a hop, skip and jump will bring you to the kind of suburban restaurants that offer real quality and value.
One stop from Castro Pretorio or a 10-minute walk through the delightful Piazza dell’Indipendenza brings you to the city’s central train, metro and bus station as well as commercial shopping complex. From this central point you can reach any part of Rome, Lazio or the rest of Italy with ease!
Beyond the ancient Baths of Diocletian wanderers will come upon the iconic Piazza della Repubblica and its central fountain, immortalised in the movie Roman Holiday. This beautiful renaissance piazza signals the entry point to the very centre of commercial and historical Rome, leading onto Via Nazionale.
On the other side of Termini Station and heralded by the magnificent Piazza della Repubblica, lies the incredible historical centre of Rome in all her glory. From the baroque and renaissance architecture of the First Municipality to the ancient and imposing figure of the Colosseum, Rome will take your breath away.
Just down the road you’ll find one of Rome’s best kept secrets in the characteristic district of San Lorenzo. Deep in the heart of the city and yet unravaged by tourism, this area is full of artisans, artists and students, cheap wine and a party atmosphere, not to mention a fine underground music scene!
The strategic central location of the 4-star Hotel Villafranca Rome offers the following benefits:
Access all of the city’s most important landmarks within minutes by metro. Termini interchange: one stop.
Direct routes to either of the city’s airports from Termini Station, within an hour in each case.
Those enjoying an extended visit may well choose to visit one of the exquisite towns in the region of Lazio.
Above all else, our central location puts our guests within walking distance much of Rome’s historical centre.
