Attractions near the Priscilla Hotel
Every capital city needs somewhere quiet to get away from the hustle and bustle and in Rome you'll find it at the Villa Borghese gardens. A giant park complete with a lake and stunning views over the old city, Villa Borghese has since the 17th century been a popular and picturesque destination for Romans to unwind. Originally built centuries ago for Pope Paul V's nephew, the Villa Borghese itself is today an impressive art gallery with an extensive collection of paintings, sculptures and antiques.
Another memorable thing about the park is the journey there and from the Priscilla Hotel you can climb the Spanish Steps to enter the park, or take the entrance via Piazza del Popolo. With extra time to spare, take a little detour and you'll be able to visit the Rome Zoo. Located just adjacent to the Villa Borghese gardens, this historic zoo is where you can spot bears, lions, elephants and all manner of other exotic animals.
Where the world goes to pray
Head south from the Priscilla Hotel and you'll find one of Rome's greatest churches. The largest of its kind in Rome, Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore is one of the city's four papal churches and is home to countless attractions including a mesmerising marble floor, historic bell tower and beautiful triumphal arch.
Given its status, it should come as no surprise to visitors that the church is patrolled by the flamboyantly costumed Vatican City State police rather than Italian police.
