ROME  –  A GREEN CITY

ROME – A GREEN CITY

casina-delle-civette

Rome offers a wide range of opportunities to immerse yourself in charming public parks and refresh in green nature in the summer season

Rome is surrounded by a wide  countryside  known as Agro Romano, characterized by rustic  landscapes and  agricultural activities . Inside the city itself archaeological ruins  of Ancient Rome (Forum, Circus Maximus, Terme di Caracalla, Parco degli Acquedotti)   form green spaces  fully integrated into the urban fabric.

Other oasis of nature are created by  parks of historic Villas (Medici, Farnese, Este Tivoli, Borghese, Ada, Doria Pamphili, villa  Ada) built on the tops of hills and surrounded  by ornamental gardens

Villa Doria Pamphili  is one of the largest and most fascinating  villa in the city  and is located on the Gianicolo, near the Porta San Pancrazio.

Villa Borghese  the most famous Roman villa, due to its very central location near the Spanish Steps and Via Veneto, once the very heart of the “Dolce Vita”. Inside Villa Borghese you’ll find the Galleria  Borghese art collection that  includes paintings, sculptures and antiques. Among the most famous pieces of art, we can name the masterpieces by Gian Lorenzo Bernini: his “Rape of Proserpine“, “Daphne and Apollo” and “David“.

Villa Ada Savoia is situated in the northeastern part of the city.This property was once the estate of the House of Savoy.   After the fall of the Italian monarchy, this enchanting park became a public property of the Italian state. An area of the park hosts the Embassy and the Council of the Egyptian Republic. It remains one of the most pleasant Rome parks for a walk. During the summer season a music festival called “Rome meets the World” take place in the park, here all the info: Roma incontra il Mondo.

Villa Torlonia  belongs to the Torlonia family. It was designed by the well known architect, Giuseppe Valadier. It was abandoned for a certain time until Mussolini used it as his state residence for a couple of decades. After 1945, it was again abandoned, until a recent restoration gave back all the beauty to the villa, now open to the public.

 

When  staying at Yes Hotel Rome you can reach easily these destinations and our staff will be happy to provide you all information you need !

Villa d’este – Villa adriana ( Tivoli)

Villa Adriana was built between 118 and 138 AD from Hadrian (Publius Aelius Hadrianus)
Adriano decided to move his residence outside the capital, choosing a green and water-rich territory, near Tivoli, 28 km from Rome,
The Villa includes residential buildings, spas, nymphaeums, pavilions, gardens that alternate according to a completely unusual distribution, which does not reflect the usual sequence of villas and imperial domus
Villa Adriana was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999

Villa d’Este  is a masterpiece of the Italian garden and part of  UNESCO  world heritage, with an impressive concentration of fountains, nymphaeums, caves and water games
Cardinal Ippolito II d’Este, Governor of Tivoli since 1550, immediately caressed the idea of creating a garden along the  slope of the “Valle gaudente”. In 1605 Cardinal Alessandro d’Este started a new program of interventions for the restoration and repair of damage to vegetation and plumbing systems,
Other works were carried out in the years 1660 – 70, when Gianlorenzo Bernini himself was involved.

 

Civita di bagnoreggio

Located on the border of Umbria, in  the Tiber Valley, Civita di Bagnoregio is  squeezed between the two deep ravines of Rio Chiaro and Rio Torbido. It is part of the Most Beautiful Villages of Italy.
For many years it became almost a ghost town, today  Civita di Bagnoregio is connected to its sister Bagnoregio, and to the “rest of the world”, through a very thin and long viaduct. It was rebuilt twice, after the demolition of the old masonry bridge, blown up by the Germans during the Second World War.
Entrance ticket prices to the Borgo
Every day of the year: € 5.00

 

 

 ostia-antica-nq-1024x683

Ostia antica

The Archaeological Park of Ostia Antica is one of the largest and most famous in Italy, equal only to that of Pompei. Thanks to the nineteenth-century escavations, 34 hectares (out of 50 possible) are rebuilt. Ostia
It seems, according to tradition, that this was one of the first inhabited settlements in Rome (founded by Anco Marzio) therefore one of the oldest areas.
The excavations of Ostia Antica were begun, at the behest of Pius VII in 1800 and were carried out by Pius IX in 1909 with Vaglieri, Paribeni and Calza who helped to resurrect the Ancient Host from the dust of the soil that had buried it.
The excavations of Ostia Antica are located in Via dei Romagnoli 717 and can be easily reached with your own vehicle or by metro, taking the B line towards Laurentina up to Magliana and from here the train to Lido di Ostia up to Ostia Antica, cross the blue pedestrian overpass and go straight to the excavation gate (total time about half an hour).

FESTIVAL DELLE SCIENZE, L’IGNOTO E I PIÚ GRANDI FISICI CONTEMPORANEI

Il piu grande nemico della conoscenza non è l’ignoranza, ma l’illusione di sapere, dice il fisico Stephen Hawking.
Intorno a questa considerazione ruota la decima edizione romana del Festival delle Scienze, ospitato dal 22 al 25 gennaio all’Auditorium Parco della Musica di Roma. A prendere parola saranno alcuni tra i più importanti scienziati contemporanei, come il matematico di Oxford Marcus du Sautoy, e il nostro Carlo Rovelli, la cui attività è attualmente rivolta allo studio dei buchi neri.
“L’Ignoto” – questo il titolo della quattro giorni di lezioni e dibattiti aperti a tutti –, ovvero quel che ancora non si conosce, va ritenuto come spinta creatrice per eccellenza: per dirla con le parole del manifesto dell’evento: “Dobbiamo rispettare quindi ciò che non sappiamo e non solo, dobbiamo persino imparare a essere a nostro agio nell’incertezza. Il poeta John Keat la chiamava negative capability: l’essere capaci di restare nell’incertezza e nel dubbio, senza cercare frettolosamente fatti e ragioni e la indicava come strumento fondamentale per il progredire della conoscenza.”
Non perdetevi uno degli eventi filosofici e scientifici più intriganti dell’anno: lo staff di Yes Hotel sarà lieto di darvi ulteriori informazioni sul programma e la sede del festival!

Villa Borghese and the “Temple of Asclepius”

One of the must visit places in Rome that combines nature, pleasure, history and physical excercise. You can spent a lot of hours walking, drinking coffee etc. You can ride your bike and enjoy! The Villa is a great place to cycle around and the cafe’s are definitely worth stopping at while taking in the scenery. It’d also be a great place for a picnic, however, there’s not a whole lot else to keep you entertained. It’s only a short walk from the Spagna metro station and the Spanish Steps though so it’s definitely worth stopping at if you’re in the area.

The lake is circled by the walking path “Viale del Lago,” but you won’t be able to miss the centerpiece – “Temple of Asclepius.” Asclepius  was the Greek god of medicine and healing – exactly what your legs will need after all this time exploring Rome & Italy!IMG_6694

From Piazza del Popolo ­- The wide open Piazza is very popular with Romans as well as tourists, for its beautiful statuary and Egyptian obelisk. To the east of the Piazza is the massive Borghese Gardens, a quiet green spot among the big city hustle and bustle. This park is great for strolling, jogging, etc, and I believe you can rent a bicycle to ride around on. On the east side of the park is the most excellent Villa Borghese, a prime site to view art, especially, in my opinion, sculpture. There is no lack of magnificent art in Rome, but don’t miss this place.

A Summer Under The Shadow Of The Colosseum

tajoPeople visiting Rome this summer can’t complain for lack of entertainment options. Besides the SoyLatino Festival, Rock in Roma,  Luglio Suona Bene at the Auditorium Parco della Musica and the New 900 Lab open-air club, visitors will be able to enjoy the festival All’Ombra del Colosseo (Under the Shadow of the Colosseum) that will take place at the enchanting Parco del Celio, located just beside the famous monument and a very nice place to visit on its own right.

The festival features mostly Italian comedians (in fact the motto this year is “Che Tajo””, Roman for “So funny!”) , so you might not be interested in the performances unless you have a pretty good grasp of Italian. However, the atmosphere will be worth it and besides, an open air restaurant and club has just been opened so you will be able to enjoy the evening through the universal languages of food and music!

The Parco del Celio is located almost literally under the shade of the Colosseum, a short subway ride away from Hotel Des Artistes or Yes Hotel. The festival will run from June 30 to September 8, 2013.

The Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome

Auditorium_Parco_della_Musica,_cavea_(Rome)One of my favorite venues for Concerts in Rome is the Auditorium Parco della Musica. They present performers who represent the best of different music styles: classical music, jazz, latin music and electronic music as well.

But the Auditorium is an attraction well worth seeing by itself. It was designed by the famous Italian architect Renzo Piano and is structured in 3 beetle-shaped units that function as independent music halls. The complex includes also a bookshop, a bar and a restaurant, making it the ideal spot for a lovely evening before or after a concert.

To reach the Auditorium from Yes Hotel, take the red subway line from Termini and get off at the station Flaminio, from there take the tram 2 and get off at the station Apollodoro.

Florence and the Machine Visits Rome

-After a long internal struggle Ilaria brings you the nuts and bolts of the upcoming visit of the new British pop sensation, Florence and the Machine.

Our Blogger: Ilaria

florence-and-the-machineOne of the events more expected this summer in Rome is the concert of a talented and sensual English singer: her name is Florence Welch, playing with her band, “the machine”, she’s already been defined as heiress of Kate Bush, Siouxsie e Pj Harvey and very soon she has became the pop diva more appreciated and cuddled on the English stage , climbing the charts of half the world and conquering the Italian radios too with the single  You’ve got the love.

After staying at the very first position on the English charts and winning the  Brit Awards with the album  Lungs, there are rumors about a  collaboration of her with Thom York , the singer of Radiohead.

HThe band’s debut album is a very original work that doesn’t betray the best English tradition, being able anyway to  go beyond the definition of independent rock . This album was made inside a debunked synagogue with the help of  two among the most sought-after producers   : James Ford (already working for Klaxons and Arctic Monkeys) and Paul Epworth (Bloc Party).

When Florence was very young at school she was a “peculiar character”  who used to read Poe and Jack The Ripper, to listen to the Velvet Underground and make gothic drawings  ( so that her mates used to define her as “macabre” ) : a teenager’s past a little bit dark transformed into an absolutely bright present; Florence says “ I love singing, I love dancing, I love playing the drums. The fact that someone pays me for doing it, well is just incredible”.

Florence has also been chosen by the Blur to open their concert in London and Manchester in June 2009. The band’s Roman concert will take place at the Auditorium Parco Della Musica, located only a short bus trip away from Yes Hotel and Hotel Des Artistes.

In Short
