Those who have heard of the evocative places of ancient Rome, know where to find Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s “Pulcin della Minerva”. Composed of a small obelisk carried by a minute elephant, this sculpture is an exquisite mix of Egyptian crafts and Baroque style.
The Grand Hotel de la Minerve’s setting is one of the city’s most fascinating squares, located between the Pantheon and the Church of “Santa Maria Sopra Minerva”.
In this enchanting setting in the heart of historical Rome, in a prime location close to the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps, rises the Grand Hotel de la Minerve, which has been a 5 star hotel in Rome since the end of the 1700’s.
An Enchanted Atmosphere of a deluxe Hotel
The “La Cesta” Restaurant serves Italian and international cuisine.
During the summer months guests may dine in the spectacular “Roof Garden”, from which the Grand Hotel de la Minerve offers an incomparable view. Here a delicious summer dinner is an excellent opportunity to enjoy the day’s last light and to delight in one of the spectacular sunsets that only the Roof Garden can offer, to the romantic accompaniment of the notes of a grand piano.
The “Le Cupole” bar, located next to the hall offers guests a wide range of wines and liquors. Seated in this relaxing and discreet setting one’s gaze naturally falls upon Rinaldi’s magnificent and imposing marble statue of the Minerva, set in the central niche of thehall.
