Althea Inn Roof Terrace

Location

Althea Inn is located in the centre of Rome, in the Testaccio area, with its art galleries and the effervescent movida in its fashionable night spots. Trastevere disctrict, a picturesque medieval area located on the west bank of the Tiber is easily reachable. The area escaped the grand developments which changed the face of central Rome, and is a charming place to wander, eat or relax. Making a visit to these areas allows a glimpse of what the Eternal City really means to its residents.

The Coliseum, which is the very centre of the Eternal City, Circus Maximus, the Imperial Forum, Piazza Venezia and the most celebrated turist attractions are at just two subway stops from Althea Inn. Those monuments are walking distance as well and can be reached in about 20 minutes.

Near Althea Inn (Within a 5 minutes walk):

Pyramid of Cestius - is an ancient pyramid and due to its incorporation into the city's fortifications, it is today one of the best-preserved ancient buildings in Rome

Protestant cemetery - contains possibly the highest density of famous and important graves anywhere in the world. It is the final resting-place of the poets Shelley and Keats, of many painters, sculptors and authors, Goethe's only son, and Antonio Gramsci, a founding father of European Communism, to name only a few.
"It might make one in love with death, to think that one should be buried in so sweet a place," wrote Shelley, not long before he drowned and was buried here.

Monte Testaccio - Is an artificial hill composed of millions of broken amphorae dating from the time of the Roman Empire, some of which were labelled with tituli picti.
Monte Testaccio was the scene of pre-Lenten celebrations. When Stendhal visited in 1827, he described the place like this: “two carts filled with pigs were hauled to the top of the hill, then allowed to run back down the steep slope to be smashed to pieces along with their porcine passengers. The watching revellers would then dismember the pigs on the spot and carry the parts off to be roasted and eaten”.
The hill gained a brief military significance in 1849 when it was used as the site of an Italian gun battery, under the command of Giuseppe Garibaldi, in the successful defence of Rome against an attacking French army.
Monte Testaccio also had a religious significance; it was formerly used on Good Friday to represent the hill of Golgotha in Jerusalem, when the Pope would lead a procession to the summit and placed crosses to represent those of Jesus and the two thieves crucified alongside him. Monte Testaccio is still crowned with a cross in commemoration of the event.

  • Truly outstanding...The Althea Inn is not only our favorite of many places we have stayed in Rome, it's the best value.

    Tripadvisor user
  • Althea Inn is a special find in Rome. The surprisingly spacious flower-festooned balcony is a treat, but the rest of the facilities are excellent too...

    Trpadvisor user
  • Arriving back from a day's sightseeing it felt like a home away from home.

  • Our room was immaculate and peaceful, with the terrace being a perfect place for a late night glass of prosecco under the stars.
