Stepping through the doors of The St. Regis Rome, a hotel founded in 1894 by César Ritz, you are immediately steeped in an intimate atmosphere. Thanks to a meticulous restoration reinterpreted with a contemporary approach, that timeless elegance that has always distinguished it has been maintained. The hotel’s Salone Ritz, with a wealth of frescoes by Mario Spinetti, was the very first public ballroom in Rome, a majestic symbol of the Belle Époque, which I heartily recommend visiting.
