Fenix Hotel is renowned for its excellent private and quiet location near the areas of Via Veneto and Villa Borghese. The place is known for the nearby historical presence of memorial parks like Villa Torlonia and Villa Paganini and many early twentieth-century roman buildings, now housing eminent embassies.
Right next to Fenix Hotel, Villa Torlonia is the best place to go for long and relaxing walks and it’s really appreciated by joggers. Inside its walls, the amazing “ House of the Owls”, Prince Alessandro Torlonia’s former House, a little masterpiece with charming Art Nouveau decorations. Today, the building is a museum of decorative arts and in particular of stained glass.
Looking East, only 2 minutes away by bus, you can visit the wonderful Saint Costanza Mausoleum and Saint Agnes Catacombs.
Not far away, moving away from the center, there is also the beautiful Coppedè district, a building complex situated in Trieste area, between Piazza Buenos Aires and Via Tagliamento. It is composed of eighteen apartment blocks and twenty-seven buildings including small apartment blocks and cottages arranged around the central core of Piazza Mincio, all erected entirely in Art Nouveau style by Gino Coppedè around 1915; a short trip in a visionary and surreal Rome.
