A Luxurious Roman Escape: Unraveling the Magic of Hotel de Russie

As a passionate travel blogger, I have been fortunate to explore some extraordinary destinations and experience world-class hotels. But my recent visit to Rome and my stay at Hotel de Russie was truly exceptional! This luxury hotel, ideally located between the Piazza del Popolo and the Spanish Steps, boasts a to-die-for location coupled with an inimitable style. French poet Jean Cocteau aptly described Hotel de Russie as “paradise on earth,” and upon arrival, I understood why. Transformed by Sir Rocco Forte into one of the city’s most stylish hotels, the property masterfully retains the allure of its 18th-century terraced gardens while infusing them with contemporary chic design.View overlooking Piazza del Popolo at Hotel de Russie
