Situated in a prime location on the banks of the river Tiber, Gran Meliá Villa Agrippina is one of Italy’s finest properties. This resort has a fine selection of excellent dining options with both an indoor and outdoor restaurant serving delicious international, Mediterranean and Italian dishes. Rooms are elegantly-designed and tastefully-furnished, with suites and interconnecting rooms available. My Blend Spa by Clarins is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate after spending the day exploring the beautiful city of Rome.
“I was lucky enough to stay at the Gran Meliá in Rome, just five minutes’ walk from the Vatican and St Peter’s Basilica and only 15 minutes from Piazza Navona. The hotel itself is very contemporary and boasts a truly exceptional location on the banks of the river Tiber. We stayed in a premium city view room, which had views of the Vatican. There is a lovely outdoor pool, which is nice to spend time relaxing in when you are exhausted from all the sightseeing that Rome has to offer.”
