Where we are
The Hotel Del Corso and the new Class House are located in the heart of Rome, in an area of the historical center that preserves all the monuments and renaissance palaces intact, as well as the inebriating city atmosphere.
The elegant facility that hosts the hotel looks over Via del Corso, a few steps away from the staircase of Trinità dei Monti and the suggestive Spanish Square, a traditional tourist site, adorned by the Barcaccia Fountain. Nearby is the realm of shopping. Via Borgogna, Via Frattina, and Via dei Condotti open right onto Via del Corso; their boutiques display branded clothing of the ateliers of the most prominent Italian stylists, while a number of other shops offer exclusive brands such as Prada, Louis Vuitton, Cartier, and Tiffany.
If you are looking for something that can spark your imagination, stroll down Via Margutta, the ancient “street of artists," which is visited by those who are searching for a trendy restaurant, valuable antiques, or a view of the works that make up the annual painting exhibition “Cento Pittori a Via Margutta" (“One hundred painters in Via Margutta").
Continuing on to Piazza del Popolo, you will arrive in front of the Church of Saint Mary of Miracles and to the climb of Pincio, atop which you can notice a nice view of Rome, and access the extensive park of Villa Borghese.
The Villa preserves an extraordinary gallery of masterpieces, bearing the signature of artists such as Caravaggio, Raphael, and Titian; inside the park are also the Bio-park, the Gallery of Modern Art, and the splendid Garden of the Lake, facing onto the Temple of Aesculapius.
How to reach us
When you get to the Roma Termini train station, take a taxi cab (10-15€), or use Line A of the subway, getting off at the third stop, “Spagna" (1,50€); with the escalator, reach the Spanish Square, walk down Via del Babbuino, and turn left on the third lateral street (Via Vittoria); then, continue 100 m and turn right on Via del Corso. After a few meters, Hotel Del Corso awaits for you on your right.
Once you arrive at the "Fiumicino" Rome airport, make your way to the Hotel del Corso with the "Leonardo Express" train, which will bring you to the Roma Termini station in about 35 minutes. From here, proceed as indicated in the above point “by train." You can alternatively take a taxi cab (48€, fee agreed with the Municipality of Rome), or request a vehicle with driver to our reception.
When you get to Rome and have exited the highway toll booths, take the Salaria exit in direction of the city center; travel down Via Salaria for about 10 Km up to the intersection with Via Pinciana, turn onto the street, and continue for about 1 Km, traveling alongside Villa Borghese. Leave the car in the Porta Pinciana parking lot, reach the subway stop with the escalator, and then Piazza di Spagna. From here onward, follow the instructions reported under the “by train" point above. From Via del Corso, you will quickly get to the subway stop, and will reach the most representative locations of Rome: the Trevi fountain, Piazza Barberini, the Imperial Forums and the ancient arena of the Colosseum; Piazza Navona – a baroque triumph decorated by the Fountain of the Four Rivers – Campo de' Fiori and the Trastevere family-run, typical restaurants, which are likewise an appreciated destination of those who choose the Hotel del Corso.
The Vatican City is the symbol of Christianity but, apart from its unquestioned spiritual role, it also treasures a historical and artistic heritage unequaled around the globe. Within the Vatican Palaces, residence of the Pope, there are intact libraries (over one million ancient volumes and manuscripts!), museums (Egyptian and Etruscan art), and works such as the famous Piety or the astounding Sistine Chapel, both by Michelangelo, a rich picture gallery, and the sumptuous papal apartments. And to finish off in true beauty, the Basilica of St. Peter. Its spectacular dome dominates the wide space of the square, which is a gathering place for Catholics embellished by the Colonnade of Bernini. For any information, ask directions and suggestions to the hotel reception.
The Class House being located in the historic center is therefore subject to the gate ZTL (Limited Traffic Zone). If you decide to join us with your car, please let us know.
