Residenza Argentina is conveniently located in the heart the city, offering splendid views of the archaeological area of Largo Argentina. It is ideally situated right in front of one of the main bus stops of the city, which will allow you to get to all the main attractions easily and economically.

The sacred area of Largo Argentina was discovered only in recent times, between 1926 and 1929, following demolition work carried out in the old quarter, in order to build new offices in the area between via del Teatro Argentina, via Florida, via S. Nicola de' Cesarini and corso Vittorio Emanuele. This archaeological complex named Argentina gets its name from Argentoratum (Strasburg) the native town of J. Burckardt, the master of ceremonies of several popes, who had his own residence built in this zone in Via del Sudario. This archaeological area features four temples, that are commonly referred to with the first four letters of the alphabet, as they have still not been fully identified.

At a distance of 650 metres from the guest hotel is the famous Piazza Venezia, one of the symbolic landmarks of the city, and which forms a crossroads of some of the most important City streets: Via dei Fori Imperiali that leads to the Colosseum and Via del Corso that leads to Via Condotti and then on to Piazza di Spagna. This square was one of the first urban additions to the city of Rome in the 16th century. The National monument in honour of Vittorio Emanuele II (better known as Vittoriano) was built in the square in between 1885 and 1925. This monument is often called Altare della Patria (Altar of the homeland) since the time that it has housed the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, a soldier who died in battle whose corpse was never identified, and which symbolically represents all the fallen in battle that have never been identified.

Only 500 m from Residenza Argentina is Piazza Navona, the most famous of the Baroque squares in Rome. In ancient times it was the stadium of Emperor Domitian in which athletic games were held, while today it is very popular with tourists due to the presence of numerous works of art by famous artists such as Bernini and Borromini, and also because it also boasts many bars and restaurants. The square is also famed for the lively presence of many street artists and portrait painters to be found along the streets of the capital.

A little distance from Castel Sant’Angelo, and only 1800 metres from Residenza Argentina, is the Vatican city the seat of “Pope Francis”. Here it is possible to visit St. Peter’s Basilica with its dome and the Papal tombs , the Vatican museums and the Sistine Chapel.
