Rome Cavalieri Hotel

Via Alberto Cadlolo 101, 00136 Rome, Italy

The richly historic collection spans paintings, sculptures and decorative arts by Italian and international masters over the centuries, giving guests the unique experience of living with these masterworks, rather than viewing them from behind the guard ropes of a traditional museum. An in house art historian is always available for extensive tours of the hotel’s incredible collection.
