Located within walking distance of Rome’s most famous landmarks lies the Jumeirah Grand Hotel Via Veneto. Regarded as a modern masterpiece, the hotel is housed in two renovated and restored 19th century villas.
Hundreds of years ago, a stroll along this part of the via Veneto would have revealed the beautifully landscaped Sallust’s Gardens, created by the famous Roman historian Sallustio. In 1622, Cardinal Ludovico Ludovisi built the suburban Villa Ludovisi on this site to house his Roman antiquities. The building soon became famous throughout Europe for its beauty and some years later, between 1825 and 1851, Villa Belloni and Villa Borroni were added.
In 2000, the restoration of the two 19th century buildings began, one on via Veneto and the other on via Sicilia. After nearly a decade of renovations, Jumeirah Grand Hotel Via Veneto was born, returning these buildings to their former glory on Rome’s most prestigious address
