An aristocratic palace in a place surrounded by history in the city of Rome
Come to discover Rome and enjoy the unique experience of staying at an aristocratic palace of the 1800s in a place full of history. This building was recently restored to offer an extremely pleasant stay, so you can relax at the same time that you enjoy an environment full of historical remains of the Roman Empire.
Our hotel is within walking distance from the Porta Pia, from the famous Via Veneto or from the Piazza Fiume, and it is an example of harmony between the past and the present, located in an exclusive area in the heart of the city. Discover the villas, squares, monuments and gardens of Rome from an extraordinary starting point: the Hotel Augustus.
The Hotel Augustus is located in a prestigious and central position in the historical centre of Rome, close to Porta Pia: the famous gate from which passed the Italian soldiers to gain the Italian Unification in 1870. In addition, public transportation is an easy way to get connected to the most important monuments and places of Rome, like Fontana di Trevi or Piazza di Spagna.
One of the main architectural attractions of Rome are its villas. On the top of Via Veneto, just 10 min from the hotel, you will see the impressive Villa Borghese and its big park full of trees and garden statues, with an artificial lake.
The Villa Torlonia, began in 1806 and abandoned after 1945, is open to the public after the recent restoration works. Surrounding the villa are landscaped grounds in the English ‘picturesque’ style and in these gardens are to be found 3rd and 4th century catacombs.
If you prefer, you can contemplate the artistic splendour of other times through its churches. In Via Boncompagni you will find the church of San Patrizio in Villa Ludovisi, where Irish people celebrate their weddings here in Rome.
Our hotel is very close to the MACRO, the great Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome, which offers a selection of some of the most significant expressions characterizing the Italian art scene since the 1960s, with works by Gianni Asdrubali, Giovanni Albanese or Cristiano Pintaldi.
From Belvedere Pincio, in addition to the magnificent view of the town, you can visit the National Gallery of Modern Art (with works by Goya, Renoir, Van Gogh or Monet), the Etruscan Museum and the Borghese Gallery, with baroque sculptures by Bernini.
The Hotel Augustus is also very close to Via Veneto, one of the main streets in Rome and well-known for being the scene of La dolce vita (1969) by Federico Fellini. In this street you will find typical Roman restaurants, the famous trattorie and osterie, pizzerias and wine bars.
In Piazza Fiume, a few minutes away from the hotel, you can go shopping in the famous shopping centre La Rinascente, where you will find a wide range of products.
