Then he asked if I wanted to visit the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill and said they could provide the tickets for me. Of course I was planning to go so he ordered the tickets for me (which were ready within a few minutes). The tickets allowed me to bypass the lines and were also valid for the two days I was there. I was also asked if I wanted to visit the Vatican (which they could've booked as well for me on a private or group tour) but unfortunately I didn't have enough time. Once again this may sound like a simple service but it did save me time and stress; not having to worry about a thing, and have someone else do the planning for me! I was really impressed with that since my visit to Rome was decided on pretty last minute, and I didn't do any prior planning for it.
I was then brought up to my room and welcomed with a bottle of champagne and this platter of delicious treats.
Dishes use only the freshest local ingredients to capture the essence of the region. There is a tasting menu available, as well as an a-la-carte and gluten-free menu. Everything is carefully prepared to stimulate and satisfy your senses.
Along with the exceptional service and delectable cuisine, are breath-taking panoramic views. There is also a wonderful ambiance which makes for a most memorable meal. I would definitely recommend at least one meal here if you are visiting Rome (even if you are not staying at the hotel), but be sure to reserve your table as far in advance as possible!
So to start off...they offered me some bread with olive oil, made in-house. You could also choose which herb you wanted with the oil. The bread was so good. I especially loved the cheese bread.
I was here alone and my whole lunch ended up being about 2 & a half hours long I think..I thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were really welcoming and attentive. They were always prompt at refilling my water, and knowledgeable about all the dishes.
View before I went to bed on the final night..I was quite relieved that the rain started only after I got back to the hotel.
Check Out: I was so sad to leave Palazzo Manfredi & Rome! The night before I left, the woman at front desk kindly created a detailed schedule for me the next morning. My flight back to Toronto was in the morning, so I'd have to check out and leave the hotel very early to get to the airport. She had set for me a wake up call, room service breakfast, a time for them to collect my luggage, & time for my cab to arrive.
The morning of, I had breakfast in bed before leaving. The porter brought my luggage down for me a few minutes before I went down myself. When I got down there, my cab was already waiting with my luggage already inside, and the porter was standing by holding the door open for me. After a quick and seamless check out, I was off to the airport.
Here is a final photo which shows the hotel (building on the left) in front of Ludus Magnus.
