Palazzo Manfredi, one of two luxury five-star boutique hotel properties in the Manfredi Fine Hotels Collection, offers breathtaking views from its location directly opposite the Colosseum. Palazzo Manfredi is an elegant hideaway in the center of what was once imperial Rome. The charming 17th century palace has spectacular views of the Colosseum, the Forum, and the Domus Aurea, combined with superb hospitality. Built over the ruins of the Ludus Magnus, the gymnasium used by Roman gladiators, Palazzo Manfredi was the hunting pavilion of the Guidi gardens. Today it is tastefully adorned with art ranging from 16th century antique paintings to contemporary pieces. The hotel offers an intimate experience, crowned only by a meal at the hotel’s Aroma restaurant where the unparalleled vistas of ancient Rome are beautifully matched by the culinary delights. The hotel’s Aroma Restaurant received its first Michelin star in November 2014. Palazzo Manfredi represents the ideal, discrete retreat for VIPS and offers a unique romantic setting for wedding proposals and wedding ceremonies.
