The Hetra complex is situated in the historical city centre, in Rione Sallustiano.
The area is named after the Horti, where the roman senator Sallustio desired the grand mansions of the aristocrats to be located.
Elegant, well looked after, and adorned by blossoming gardens, the Horti became the idyllic spot for the homes of the Roman emperors and their consuls who found that this ideal location offered splendour and peace at walking distance from the beating heart of the Empire.
In addition to the rich vegetation, the Horti featured prestigious architectural and decorative elements such as candid marble statues, arcades, as well as fountains that cooled down the sunny afternoons.
Today, this area still conserves its ancient origins as a protected oasis in the heart of the city.
The Hetra complex stands in amongst some of the most well-known, and visited monuments and historical and artistic attractions in Italy. A short walk away, Via Vittorio Veneto awaits seductively with its cafés and hotels symbolic of Fellini’s “La dolce vita”.
Slightly westwards the imposing steps of the church of the Santissima Trinità dei Monti land in Piazza di Spagna, then lead off towards via Condotti, the hub of Italian high fashion, with the most luxurious, renowned boutiques in the world.
Not far-off, Piazza del Popolo welcomes you with its 16,000 sqm pedestrian zone and offers a magnificent view of the Pincian Hill.
Heading back towards the Rione Sallustiano area, we come across the magnificence of the Trevi Fountain, Piazza della Repubblica’s embrace and the greenery of Villa Borghese. A phenomenal trip across thousands of years of Italian history, art and beauty.
