Relais Vatican View

Rome, Italy

A splendid central Rome bolthole with a rooftop terrace and views over St Peter's Basilica - breakfast and a welcome drink included

Get in touch with your spiritual side with a stay at Relais Vatican View which, as its name suggests, is within touching distance of the world’s largest church – St Peter’s Basilica, with its instantly recognisable dome and vast square. The hotel is so close, in fact, that you can listen to the Pope himself as he addresses the masses who fill the square each Sunday. Some rooms even boast an enviable glimpse of St Peter’s cupola across the rooftops; all of them invite calm contemplation with their serene white walls, soothing neutral hues and soft lighting – hand-picked accessories and monochrome photo prints adding to the pleasing effect. The pride and joy of the place, however, is its stunning panoramic roof terrace, reached by spiral staircase and comfortably furnished with cushion-laden sofas.


  • The unbeatable location just a few steps from St Peter’s Square and the Vatican
  • The panoramic rooftop terrace with view of St Peter’s cupola
  • A welcome drink begins your stay in convivial fashion
