My favorite hotel on the Via Venato in Rome is the Majestic Hotel. I love the rooftop restaurant and the lobby bar. The hallways are cloaked with interesting vintage photos of “la Dolce Vita.”

It’s located on the Via Venato just steps away from Piazza Barberini with two Bernini fountains: The large Fontana del Triton is pictured at the top of this post (1622) and the Fontana delle Api (1627)  is shaped like a shell and covered with Barberini bees. The elegant hotel is within walking distance of the Villa Borghese where you can admire many of Bernini’s sculptures at the Villa. It is also close to the top of the Spanish steps.

The lobby and guestrooms are furnished with elegant antiques and the service is impecable. The hallways are filled with framed photos of the filming of the movie “La Dolce Vita”.

You don’t even have to tell the people at the front desk your room number when you pick up your key because they remember your name. They also appreciate an update on all the great tourist spots you racked up in Rome. They were able to get me tickets to the Carravagio Exhibition and were thrilled to know that I write travel guides about Italy.

My favorite Bob Dylan lyrics are “Go away from my window-leave at your own chosen speed. I’m not the one you long for–not the one you need”.  Do you remember that one? Check  out the live version of “It Ain’t Me Babe” on YouTube–
