Stay

G-Rough

This 10-suite boutique hotel is housed in a 17th-century palazzo with original wood-beamed ceilings and mosaic floors. Lifestyle butlers are on hand to book you an in-room massage or arrange a designer-for-a-day experience, where you’ll craft a handbag with leather tailor Luigi Mulas Debois.

Piazza di Pasquino, 69, 39-6-6880-1085

Dine

Mercato Centrale

The three-storey food hall, opened last fall, offers fresh fare from more than a dozen vendors. For a more leisurely meal, Michelin-starred Oliver Glowig’s menu at La Tavola, Il Vino e La Dispensa features regional specialties, such as silver scabbardfish with deep-fried artichokes.

Roma Termini, Via Giovanni Giolitti, 36, 39-6-9293-9569

See

Artcity at Palazzo Venezia

The Renaissance-era art museum is the primary event hub for the city’s summer-long cultural festival. Immerse yourself in a 16th-century green space in The Garden of Dreams sound installation or, in the museum’s actual garden, see a performance by contemporary dance company Le Supplici.

Piazza di S. Marco, 49, 39-6-3281-0410

Day Trip

Sperlonga

Beach season in this village on the Gulf of Gaeta lasts until October, and it’s only an hour away by train. Laze under a striped umbrella or venture 30 minutes down the beach to see the ancient grotto of Emperor Tiberius’ former retreat. In the old town, savour fried prawns and grilled octopus as you take in the view.
