Opening in the summer of 2012 in central Rome, the five-star, luxury Palazzo Mon- temartini will be the newest member of the prestigious Ragosta Hotels Collection.

At the luxurious property—located in walking distance of the Termini train station, and adjacent to the Baths of Diocletian—you’ll find all your leisure, business and well- ness needs catered to with the utmost of care and modernity. Housed in an ancient palace that dates to the late 800s, the hotel harmoniously blends exclusive high-tech elegance with the marble, stucco and classic lines of its beautifully restored abode. A 4,306-square-foot on-site ExPure SPA, spaces for meetings and receptions, an ex- clusive lounge bar and accommodations designed to host private events make Palazzo Montemartini a truly unique space in the Eternal City. As with other Ragosta properties, the hotel subscribes to “Design Your Lifestyle,” a concept offering a vast array of out- of-the-box leisure and wellness options, cutting-edge cuisine, creative design and the latest in technology, so elite travelers can design the stay that best suits their lifestyle
