Original, surprising and whimsical: Majestic Roma Hotel embraces its neoclassical heritage by reinventing it for the 21st century and offering guests the chance to step into a one of the city’s most glamorous residences. The hotel is an original combination of styles, a study in careful contradictions that juxtaposes white lacquered pieces of furniture, rich textures and the extraordinary use of color to evoke an emotional response from all who visit. Each of its guest rooms and suites are uniquely designed in this fashion. The Majestic Bar offers classic aperitifs, fanciful drinks and modern classics that hearken back to the golden age of the cocktail hour and is complemented by the gourmet restaurant featuring a charming terrace overlooking Via Veneto street.

The hotel Majestic Roma is located directly on Via Veneto, a few steps from Villa Borghese. It is within walking distance to Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and city’s finest boutiques.

Discover the wonders of Cortina d’Ampezzo, the Queen of the Dolomites.   It is a land of rugged mountains, sensational light and charming traditions.  Join an experienced alpine guide for a hike along one of the via Ferrata (Italian for ‘iron way’).   Then, spend the following day relaxing and enjoying the entrancing town of Cortina.

Guests should schedule their flights to depart from Venice’s Marco Polo International Airport.

The via Ferrata (Italian for "iron way") is a mountain route equipped with steel cables, ladders, and other fixed anchors, for example wooden walkways and suspended bridges. These are particularly helpful for hikers of all skill levels and and allows those not versed in climbing technique to hike on ledges, climb vertical walls, and reach the peaks of mountains.  You can set your own pace and hike for as little or as much time as you’d like.  

Return to the hotel at the end of a very full and exciting day.   Dinner this evening is on your own account.
