Mark Knopfler, Concert in Rome

A left-handed Scotsman who plays a right-hand guitar without a plectrum and produces brilliant results. Who are we talking about? Mark Knopfler of course.

The leader of Dire Straits - a legendary band behind some of the most memorable tracks in the history of rock, such as "Sultans of swing" and "Romeo and Juliet" - left the group to embark on a solo career.

After a first listen to his new album, it is clear that he has embraced folk and country sounds, especially on tracks like "Golden heart", "Sailing to Philadelphia" and "Shangri-la". Knopfler brings his latest album "Kill to Get Crimson" on tour around Europe, as well as his red and white Stratocaster Fender.

Rome, Palalottomatica - JUNE 6, 2008


The Cure - Concert in Rome

Pop, gothic, eclectic, psychedelic (remember the giant spider in the 'Lullaby' video), but also ballads, rock and post-punk; the range of sounds and styles attributed to the Cure over the years by critics is infinite...

The charismatic leader of the band, Robert Smith, rejects all labels however and says: "I play Cure music, whatever music that is". The band's repertoire is made up of pieces that range from the hard to the very light - each track has its own special magic - and lyrics inspired by writers such as Baudelaire, Kafka and Camus.

On 29 February Rome will have the pleasure of hosting one of the most unique bands in the world, namely, the Cure.


Charming small bed and breakfast in Rome - Little Queen

Little Queen is a charming B&B located in the centre of Rome, right in the heart of the ancient Jewish ghetto, just a few metres away from the Coliseum, Piazza Venezia, the Pantheon and Piazza Navona. The street and the entire area where the bed and breakfast is located is extremely charming: just 50 metres away from the accommodation you have one of the nicest small squares of Rome. Thanks to this privileged and nice location, hosts of the bed and breakfast can easily reach the city's main attractions on foot without using a car or public transport. Every single site of interest is within a very easy reach.

The house is really unique in its kind, as it is a small building surrounded by many larger blocks. Every single detail of the house, which has been recently renovated (November 2007) , has been carefully studied so that the B&B features a pleasant mix of classical and modern style combining wooden roofs and modern design furniture.

The B&B offers its guests 3 rooms, each with en-suite bathroom. Each room has air-conditioning, Internet access, warming, safe, LCD TV, wardrobe and desk.

The house also has common areas where guests can have breakfast in the morning or relax in the evening meeting other guests and their hosts.

The B&B is well connected to the train station and to the airport and can be easily reached by bus.

A curious information: the B&B took its name from the street where it is located: Via Della Reginella (little queen), where a contest was once held to elect the beauty queen of the neighbourhood.

Rome apartment in Trastevere

Right in the heart of the Trastevere area, the "Vicolo dell'Atleta" is a lovely independent apartment which has just been restructured. Set out on more than one level, this apartment will make your stay a real treat, where you can experience life among the lanes and alleys of real authentic Rome, among the colours, smells and charms of the city of the past in the city's most lively and characteristic area. Just a stone's throw away from all the main tourist attractions of the city, this is a place of real charm and comfort.

The apartment consists of a large sitting room, with a TV, a dining table, a settee, a stereo and a fireplace. The lovely little kitchen is fully-fitted and has been furnished with high-quality materials. One bedroom is set out on two levels and can be used for up to four persons. The other bedroom has a double bed in a loft area. There are then two nice bathrooms, one of which has a washing machine. The other has a shower and hydro-massage unit.

The visual attraction of the clever restructuring of the apartment on more than one level is truly wonderful. The loft areas, the lights built into the floor, the lights which illuminate the various corners in a discrete manner, the internal stairs, the vaulted ceilings, the smart use of wood and the furniture finishes: all of this comes together wonderfully to make the apartment a really charming jewel.

The location itself is just as wonderful: here you are immersed among the sometimes sleepy and sometimes lively lanes and alleys of the Trastevere area, among typical Roman restaurants, craft shops, bars and wine shops. Here you can really experience the true Rome. Just a stone's throw from Santa Maria in Trastevere, the "Tiberine" island on the Tiber, the Janiculum, the archaeological wonder of the Coliseum, the Vatican and the Piazza Navona and Campo de' Fiori area.

Italy Luxury Hotels

Dear Guest,

it is with great pleasure that we welcome you through the pages of “Luxury Accommodation in Italy”, the finest selection of luxury hotels in Italy, historical estates, country manors and, in some rare but excellent cases, bed and breakfast accommodation you can choose among to plan your deluxe stay in our peninsula.

Browsing through this website you will be delighted by the sight of the very best Italy has to offer you: a historic manor in Veneto, a castle in Chianti, a charming hotel in the Dolomites or in Sicily, a breathtaking suite in Rome or Sorrento. All of them have been selected with utmost care according to strict criteria: quality, beauty, class, comfort, impeccable service. In a word: luxury.

Managing the Italia Lodging website we have been dealing with many different kinds of accommodation over the years, and quality has always been the main keyword in the selection of lodgings to be listed. As the overall level of hotels and country inns grew higher and higher, we soon realised that some of them were somewhat special and tended to stand out both aesthetically and qualitatively: beyond high standards, they had “personality”. They were not simply farm houses or standard hotels, so we thought they deserved particular attention and should be promoted separately in a website that could exalt all their charm and style.

Luxury Accommodation in Italy” was devised following the exalting idea of creating a “luxury only” network, a garland of incomparable pearls all over Italy which are so different form each other yet all so fascinating, so gorgeous, so luxurious. Just a few selected places, all bookable on-line, for the most demanding clients who plan to spend an exclusive stay in Italy filling their eyes with beauty and wrapping themselves in a soft blanket of comfort, treat and class.

Take your time, have a look. Choosing your destination is not going to be an easy task.
