The Alex Inn exclusive Guest House in the ancient city Rome
is located just off the famous Via Veneto – the street
name synonymous throughout the world with style, finesse and
of course, La Dolce Vita. And life is indeed sweet when you’re
able to while away the hours in a street café observing
life in the Italian capital.
Via Veneto, as you can see from the interactive map below,
is in the heart of the city and within easy walking distance
of other famous spots such as the Spanish Steps, the unforgettable
Trevi Fountain, Piazza della Repubblica and Piazza del Popolo.
If you’re into exploring Rome on foot – and it’s
well worth the effort – the Colosseum and Roman forum
are a little further afield, while the Vatican city is about
45 minutes to an hour on foot. This 3000-year old city is
rather large and it’s impossible to be close to everything,
even when you’re on Via Veneto. Thankfully the Alex
Inn is also blessed with great accessibility to the other
parts of the city via public transport.
Four metro stops will bring you to St Peter’s and the
Vatican City; the same number in another direction will bring
you to the Colosseum. Buses are also abundant in the centre
and offer a more aesthetically pleasing journey. Added to
this, attempts to update the ageing underground system have
been relentlessly hampered by archaeological discoveries,
(as one might have expected) and the result is that the metro
system is quite basic.

How to get to the Alex Inn
Public transport links both of the city’s airports
with Termini Central Train Station, from here take the metro
to Barberini (Line A) and either hail a cab or walk up Via
Veneto (which is uphill).
If you choose to walk, you can take a left onto Via Emilia
directly from Via Veneto but you’ll have to walk up
a short flight of stairs.
