Mecenate Palace - Rome
The Mecenate Palace hotel is a luxury 4-star Rome hotel situated right in historic center of the city. The hotel’s main building is a beautiful 19th-century palazzo facing onto the stunning 5th-century basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. This imposing basilica boasts some masterful Late Antique mosaics, and is the resting place of St Jerome. Another 2 minutes away is the basilica of Santa Prassede, home to a portion of the column on which it is claimed Jesus was whipped. A 5-minute stroll from the hotel, you'll find the National Museum of Oriental Art. Housed in the Baroque Palazzo Brancaccio, this museum hosts a small collection of treasures from across the Asian continent. Meanwhile, just a 10-minute walk away from the Mecenate Hotel is the church of San Pietro in Vincoli. The basilica’s modest exterior hides remarkable 18th-century frescos, Greek marble columns, and the chains purportedly used to imprison St Peter. Also within the basilica's walls is the unfinished tomb of Pope Julius III, which features Michelangelo’s majestic statue of Moses as its centerpiece. Guests staying in this family-friendly Rome hotel can also reach the Colosseum on foot in 15 minutes, via Colle Oppio park.
