Our Location

Via della Pace is one of the most characteristic and historic streets in the center of Baroque Rome, where the doors of sumptuous palaces and small houses open in a picturesque mix of colors and atmospheres.

Relais Arco della Pace is located in a very central street of Rome and can be easily reached with both public and private means. A taxi station is located just a short walk from the Relais.

On Foot: If you are walking through the center of Rome, the easiest way to reach us is by taking Via della Pace from Via dei Coronari. If you are around Piazza Navona, you can take Via della Pace also from Via di Tor Millina through Piazza del Fico: here on the right is Via della Pace.

If you arrive in Rome by train: our advice is to go through the historical center by taxi. If you take the bus, you can get the number 64 bus from Termini Station and get off at C.so Vittorio Emanuele / Navona, located about 350 meters Via della Pace: from Corso Vittorio Emanuele, turn right in Vicolo Savelli, cross Via del Governo Vecchio and then take Via del Parione to get to Via della Pace.

Relais Arco della Pace is ideal for visiting Rome and then unwind in a quiet house.

From our hotel, you can make some beautiful walks and admire within a radius of a few hundred meters some of the most extraordinary art treasures of Rome.
We are located in one of the most visited areas of the Italian capital, however, the familiar character of a private house located on a side street allows you to find here a quiet, intimate retreat for a relaxing holiday.

Via dei Coronari, characteristic street of historical second-hand shops a few steps from Relais Arco della Pace, gives an antique charm to the entire district.

It features small shops displaying their antiques wares and valuable ancient artifacts: Via dei Coronari is the international meeting point in Rome for those who know how to discover and can recognize the antique treasures. The shops that are found there are managed by well-known art historians and often exhibit priceless objects, collected from the most ancient houses and palaces of Rome. Strolling the quaint antique shops is one of the most fascinating experiences of a trip to Rome.

Via Arco della Pace is named after Santa Maria della Pace, splendid Baroque church that houses the cloister designed by Bramante, now home to numerous international exhibitions.

Originally, in the street there was only a small chapel dedicated to Mary and commissioned by Pope Sixtus IV for a vote: the Pope prayed that the Pazzi Conspiracy underway in Florence did not lead to any conflict. The war was avoided and, as a voting offering, he ordered an unknown artist the building of a small church. In the Baroque era, the building was enlarged according to Pietro da Cortona’s project, commissioned by Pope Alexander VII. The new stylistic imprint of the front with concave wings seems to project the building forward and ideally fill the entire square, as the wave of a new artistic sensibility destined to dominate the urban areas of central Rome.

The Chiostro del Bramante was one of the first Roman works by the famous architect, built between 1500 and 1504 for Bishop Carafa.

Today it is one of the most significant works of the sixteenth-century Roman Renaissance. A short walk from our Relais, the cloister is home to some of the most interesting exhibitions and the capital's international appeal.
