Enjoy the 57th International Young Lawyers’ Congress while staying in one of the most exclusive hotels in Rome. Parco dei Principi Grand Hotel & Spa has a privileged location in one of the most refined areas of the city, overlooking the Villa Borghese gardens. It is only a few minutes away from Via Veneto, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and the world-famous Via Condotti.
The Roma Fiumicino international airport is about 30 km from the city centre and is well connected by highway and express train service. The main Railway Station Termini is only a few minutes by taxi or by public bus with a stop just 50 metres from the hotel.
The design of its 179 rooms showcase a pleasing harmony of textures and colours, from silk-threaded wallpaper, textured wall panels and refined wooden hardware on custom-made furnishings. Most of the guest rooms feature exterior windows and balconies to let in natural lights, while some of them enjoy breathtaking views of the Vatican City. During their stay, guests can try a delicious alchemy of products of the earth and sea that is typical of the Italian food at the renowned “Pauline Borghese” restaurant.

Getting around in the city
The single best way to get round Rome is by using the public transport system. In many cities, walking everywhere is easily the best way to get around, and it’s often the most enjoyable. In Rome, however, you’ll need to use the city’s buses or Metro system to get around as monuments are situated a short distance away from each other and you will require good walking shoes to tackle the hilly terrain. Tickets for public transport can be purchased from newsagents, vending machines at bus stops, Atac booths in metro stations and at times on buses themselves. Visit the Atac website for more information on Rome public transport.
ROME METRO TRAINS
The Italian State Railways have several levels of service, from local trains that stop at every station, to the Pendolino, a fast, luxurious first-class-only train.
From the airport, the Stazione Termini direct train runs hourly. The Stazione Termini, Rome’s main train station, is the hub of the urban transportation system. Beneath it is the only interchange between the city’s two Metro lines, and directly outside, on Piazza dei Cinquecento, is the central bus terminal.
BUSES AND TRAINS
The main bus terminal is outside Termini Stazione. Day buses run from 0530 until midnight and tickets are not sold on buses. Tickets for night buses are sold by conductors on the buses, which run from 01:00 until 05:30. Tickets are time stamped, valid for 90 minutes of travel and cost €1.50.
Rome’s public orange buses and a handful of trams cover much of the city, but they do not travel through the narrow streets of the historic centre. Several routes, however, are within a short distance of most main attractions. Communal stops include the Vatican, Spanish Steps, and Trevi Fountain.
Bus 40 Express – Special bus for tourists
- Vatican area and St. Peter’s Basilica – stop Borgo Sant’Angelo (beginning/end of line)
- City centre (Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain) – stop Piazza Argentina
- Colosseum (Imperial and Roman Forum) – stop Piazza Venezia
- Termini Train Station (beginning/end of line)
