The Best Places to Visit in Rome

If there is a country full of fascinating places with a lot of history, architecture and spectacular cuisine, it is surely Italy, and its capital, Rome, is one of my unforgettable destinations!

The “Eternal City,” as it is known, was founded in 735 b.C and is one of the most important cities in world history, one of the only cities in the world where great and ancient monuments were kept and became calling cards of the city.

On my last visit, I explored every corner of the Italian city. The best option is to take a bike tour. The tour lasts around 1 hour, especially at the end of the night, when the streets are empty and less crowded, and besides being a cheap option, it allows you to enjoy the view better during the trip.

You can rent an electric bike from Get Your Guide for € 25 1 – 3 days, with helmet, padlock, child seat up to 4 years old and insurance included.

Next, I’ll tell you more about the places I recommend for the tour:

Colosseum: Considered one of the 7 greatest wonders in the world, opened around 80 a.D, it hosted the famous “Bread and Circus” where thousands of Romans watched gladiators battling each other or with animals. Due to its well preserved ruins, the place is the main tourist spot of Rome and is therefore VERY popular. So the tip is to buy the ticket in advance and get the fast pass to avoid the stress of a mile line. Access Get Your Guide by clicking here and get it now!

Roman Forum and the Paladin: Tickets are included to those of the Colosseum and they are side by side, so when you leave the Colosseum, stop by! The Arch of Titus, the Giulia Basilica and the Temple of Saturn are all part of the forum building which is a large open square, so check the weather and avoid going on a rainy day! The forum was the center of Roman public life; elections, political speeches and criminal proceedings were held there, thus becoming known as the “cradle of law”.

Pantheon: From the Latin, Pantheon means “of all gods”, the Pantheon is over 2,000 years old and is the best preserved structure of ancient Rome. Today it is used as a Catholic church and prayer temple, but was formerly used as a temple for the worship of gods such as Saturn, Venus, Neptune and so on. Also inside there were buried personalities, like painters Raffaello and Annibale Caracci, kings Vittorio and Emanuele II and queen Margherita.

Fontana Di Trevi: The Rome icon just behind the Colosseum. Who has never dreamed of throwing a penny in the fountain to make a wish? Designed by Nicola Salvi, the fountain is located at the tre vie intersection, giving the name Di Trevi, marking the end of one of the city’s oldest aqueducts, the Aqua Virgo. However, since 2007, the source has been supplied by a pump that brings water from the city’s supply system. In the middle of the fountain is the statue of the Ocean god leading a shell drawn by two seahorses. The fountain is on the facade of Palazzo Poli, which is home to the Istituto Centrale per la Grafica and the Istituto Nazionale per la Grafica museum, which are also worth a visit!

The Residence of Munich (German: Münchner Residenz) is a palace in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. Situated in the city center, it was the official residence of the dukes, voters, and kings of Bavaria.

The site is the largest urban palace in Germany, currently serving as an interior decoration museum, considered one of the most beautiful in Europe.

The former German palace has been expanded over time and is now surrounded by a large complex, the largest in southern Germany, comprising 10 courtyards and the 130-room museum. In addition to the museum, the complex also houses a concert hall, the Royal Treasure House and the Cuvilliés Theater.

The architecture and style of the residence were adapting and blending as the changes were taking place on site and have an interesting mix of Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, and Classicism styles.

An oasis in Mexico: The hotel Encuentro Guadalupe

Have you considered staying in a luxury hotel in the middle of the Valle de Guadalupe mountains in Mexico? If so, Encuentro Guadalupe is the right destination!

The hotel, which is in the winery region, is my favorite place when I want to disconnect from everything and enjoy nature. According to the hotel itself, Encuentro is “a space that invites our guests to enjoy the common areas and reuniting with themselves, keeping in touch with nature, respecting the surroundings and admiring the wonderful landscape that the Guadalupe Valley offers us”.

Encuentro has 22 lofts made for the guests to relax. Each room has its own terrace, mountain views, local-made wine floors – the hotel has seven hectares of vineyard – and an outdoor clay kiva. Everything to enjoy the stay and connect with nature.

Valuing the experience, Encuentro welcomes each visitor with a drink of their own production, that can be enjoyed while visiting the winery and admiring the view from the lobby. The wines tasted by guests are produced right there in the hotel’s owned vineyards. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Nebbiolo are some of the types that make up the hotel’s wine cellar.

Its architecture is rustic and uses elements of nature in its composition, such as decorative objects made of logs, fireplaces built with clay, natural stones composing the decoration of the lofts. All connected with the view of the mountains, which can be enjoyed from the glass walls surrounding the hotel.

About the gastronomy, the hotel has the Origin restaurant, which works as an “open kitchen”, where guests can watch the execution of the dishes, made by chef Omar Valenzuela. Each dish is a combination of flavors, shapes and colors that explores ingredients from northern Baja California.

In addition, the hotel features the Raw Oyster Bar, headed by chef Melissa Navaro, whose signatures are oyster dishes and drinks that delight the guest with their beauty and taste.

suíte "The View", por Carlos Rossi

Carlos Rossi attends the D&D HOTEL’DESIGN event

From August 22nd to September 29th, D&D Shopping in partnership with the Sheraton Hotel, will be holding the first edition of the D&D HOTEL’DESIGN show, which brings together the best names of architecture and decoration, ideas and solutions for hotels, flats and inns market focused on investors and professionals of the segment.

There are 23 spaces divided into 18 suites, three rooms in the hotel lobby and halls with the challenge of creating concept environments. Architect Carlos Rossi, a professional in the high-end architecture and decoration market for 25 years, signs “The View” suite, which, as its name suggests, has a great view of the Estaiada Bridge (city postcard), inspiration for an urban environment and potentially masculine aesthetics that has everything to do with the business tourist, so common in São Paulo, with elegance and personality.

“The View” room, by Carlos Rossi to D&D HOTEL’DESIGN.

The suite has approximately 39 m² fully integrated as requested by a contemporary hotel. “When I first visited, I came across a lower ceiling that made it possible to create a ‘box’ with floor, wall and lining in dark tones that sound minimalist and give impact and personality”, says Carlos Rossi who put the bathtub in evidence, creating a poetic atmosphere to the space.

Following, the headroom rises and includes the bed, living and bench with warm and cozy coverings, such as wood floors, wall fabrics, carpets and a large decentralized frame that brings an unusual but harmonious color point. Still on the decoration, it features a sculpture by the fine artist Bia Dória and numbered prints by Fasframe.

On the structural aspect, Rossi removed walls and partitions to provide breadth and unity to the layout, delivering unpretentious shapes that enable a clean and welcoming interaction.

For Hall and Lobby

Beyond the suite, Carlos Rossi was responsible for the hall and lobby. To this end, he designed an environment of cozy materials, lining the walls with Bucalo wallpaper with a light touch of linen to convey an idea of tailoring. The wood – presented sometimes as a portico, sometimes as beaded and corrugated – has been supplied by Duratex and is present in timeless neutral tones combined with soft and overdone lighting that signals but doesn’t pollute the vision and follows the softness option.

To bring refinement, the number of the rooms are in bas-relief with backlight. The dramatic mix of lighting makes up a game with lights that brings elegance and acts as a beacon, highlighting the porticos.

“If I had to define this project, I would use the term minimalism. The carpet is textured and, even without a defined shape, has movement and perfectly matches the porticos that lead to the suites. Regarding the photos, I opted out for striking images of São Paulo to excite the guests and cause a desire to see the city”, says Carlos Rossi.

Notably because of the restraint in the elements, we have a sculpture by artist Bia Dória (which has already been exhibited in Italy) and a floral arrangement made by The Florist who “greets” us as we leave the elevator.

About Carlos Rossi

Having more than 25 years in the market and projects developed in most Brazilian states, some countries in Europe, Central America and Africa, the architect seeks the complete satisfaction of his clients through innovative solutions in contemporary language that prioritizes the personality of those who’ll occupy the space. His works have been gaining distinction in magazines and specialized books, as well as in awards in major national and foreign competitions, such as the Americas Property Awards, and has also established significant partnerships in the field of incorporation with the English Studio YOO by Philippe Starck and John Hitchcox and the Italian Studio Pininfarina.

Meet a Louis Vuitton Foundation at Paris

In this Friday (17) I had the opportunity to meet the Foundation Louis Vuitton in one of the noble districts of Paris and today I came here to tell you all about the place for you!

Located in a water garden designed only to receive the structure, the Jardin d’Acclimatation, the Louis Vuitton Foundation, or Louis Vuitton Foundation, is one of the modern architectures that most enchanted me the whole time I travel.

The Louis Vuitton Foundation was designed by the famous architect Frank Gehry in 2014 and today houses important exhibitions in Paris, and can also be used for conventions and events, for having a hall for various activities.

Frank Gehry wanted to take inspiration from the sails of a boat to build the building, so it is surrounded by water and has wooden structures (candles) that hold the plates and glass blocks of the FLV.

The glasses were placed so that whoever looks reminds of interlocking icebergs and, if you notice, during the day according to the position of the light they reflect the water, the sky, and the garden. A splendid sight!

The FLV has an entrance hall where you find a restaurant and bookstore very cozy, and there is also located the event room quoted above.

Going up the floors I wandered from gallery to gallery, where artworks are exhibited. It is also possible to climb the external stairs, which lead you to the Foundation’s terrace, or a garden roof. From there the view is incredible, you can not put aside this climb.

Although it is little known yet, because it is a modern and new architecture, it is well worth the visit to the Louis Vuitton Foundation. It is a place with few tourists and a precious one in one of the noble, and remote, quarters of Paris.
