Stay

Take refuge in a rustic Roman palazzoRome, Italy

When we first went to Italy’s capital as teenage backpackers, we stayed in spare rooms in a nun’s quarters. Not exactly party central. You can understand, then, our excitement arriving at this treasure. Around the corner from Piazza Navona and with five-star features, G-Rough is anything but. Within the raw concrete walls of each of its 10 suites, set in a building from the 1600s, are pieces of furniture by famed Italian designers including Giò Ponti. The wine bar is a much more luxe space, but its best-kept secret is the tiny roof terrace. Wait until the sun is dropping from the sky and head up here with an Aperol spritz to watch the sky, with its horizon of tiled roofs and cathedral domes, turn golden.
