VIP Experience

Rocco Forte de Russie Rome.Writing to his mother from Rome’s Hotel de Russie, poet Jean Cocteau remarked that he could pick oranges from his balcony, describing the hotel as ""paradise on Earth."" This paradise was later turned into an office building before Sir Rocco Forte fashioned it into one of Rome’s most stylish luxury hotels. The 18th-century terraced gardens remain, but a contemporary-chic design has added polished updates. Fabled restaurant Le Jardin de Russie, where two-Michelin-star chef Fulvio Pierangelini creates Mediterranean dishes, is one of the most romantic places to dine in Rome. Guests can also enjoy afternoon tea or an evening cocktail, including the original De Russie Martini that is served with caviar - a nod to the hotel’s 19th-century clientele who would escape cold Russian winters for Rome’s warmer climate.

Rocco Forte Hotel Savoy.The centrally located Hotel Savoy is built on the site of the Mercato Vecchio and old church of San Tommaso, and is within walking distance from the city’s great sites including the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery. The sense of location and history is reflected in star-designer Olga Polizzi’s sleek, modern Italian interiors with muted colors and beautiful mosaic bathrooms. The main designer behind Sir Rocco Forte`s hotels, Polizzi also referenced the city’s nearby fashion boutiques with tongue-in-cheek artwork and photography. Irene, the new Florentine bistro by Fulvio Pierangelini, is a journey through flavor and tradition with simple, authentic flavors and light and healthy reinventions of Tuscan classics. In summer, guests can enjoy al fresco dining on the classic Piazza Repubblica.
