Steeped in ancient history, bursting with beautiful scenery, and home to some of the world’s most celebrated food and wine, Italy is a perennial favorite destination for travelers. Whether it’s their first or fifth time in Italy, bespoke Virtuoso outfitter Access Italy ensures its guests see the country in a way few other travelers can. We got a taste of the company’s offerings with a customized itinerary that we won’t soon forget.
Day 1: Rome
Upon arriving in Rome, we were greeted at the airport and whisked to Hotel Eden, a Dorchester Collection hotel overlooking the city from Via Ludovisi, just a few minutes’ walk from the Spanish Steps. Nice Touch: A bottle of chilled wine and a beautiful assortment of cheeses, chocolates, fresh fruit and other bites were waiting when we arrived in our spacious suite.
At Hotel Eden’s rooftop Il Giardino restaurant and bar, guests can savor classic Italian cuisine while taking in panoramic views of Rome.
