Escape to a chic and quintessentially Roman hotel near Vatican City – includes breakfast, flights and 'skip the line tickets' for the Vatican museums and Sistine Chapel

At the elegant Church Palace, Monochrome zigzag wallpaper and sleek marble countertops sit alongside crumbling pillars and quaint, manicured gardens, in an impressive amalgamation where the old meets the new. The Villa Carpegna Park, located on the hotel’s doorstep, offers an idyll of calm where you can appreciate tinkling water features and twittering birds in a heritage setting. Situated a half-hour metro ride outside of Rome’s centre, The Church Palace allows guests to experience a peaceful, sleepy ambience as well as an easy route to the city’s most famous and visited sites.

As if it wasn’t serene enough, the hotel also has its own magnificent church, complete with naves and green marble colonnades. You can venture further to Vatican City in three metro stops, or go further into the centre to sample an incredible array of world-famous artworks and delectable cuisine. Return to the hotel in the evening to enjoy Roman gastronomy at the Nero Terrace Restaurant, or simply just to dally over a late-evening cocktail in the outdoor Square bar.
