Donna Camilla Savelli, Rome

Designed and built by Francesco Borromini, Donna Camilla Savelli is housed inside a 17th-century convent in the heart of Rome in the lively Trastevere district in Rome. The property has an incredible history which dates back to 1642, when noblewoman Camilla Savelli directed the build of the convent of Santa Maria dei Sette Dolori and the adjacent church.

Following a meticulously studied restoration aimed at safeguarding the Baroque architecture, Donna Camilla Savelli reopened its doors to the public in 2008. Today it continues to offer guests a home where they can enjoy a Roman holiday surrounded by beauty, art, and culture.

The Il Ferro e il Fuoco restaurant offers authentic Roman flavours with a contemporary twist. The internal garden houses Bar Bistrot, a tranquil place to rest and delight in a true Italian aperitif.

Trastevere is one of the oldest and most characteristic districts of the Eternal City and it perfectly matches the hospitality offered by Donna Camilla Savelli. Filled with bars, historic trattorias and hidden squares, it has been a delegate of Roman folklore over the centuries, handing down its original character to this very day.
