Set like an ancient jewel between the Monti Reatini and Monti Sabini, at the foot of Mount Terminillo, lies the town of Rieti: considered, due to its central geographical position, the Navel of Italy, Rieti boasts an ancient history that can still be read in the many monuments within its walls.
To discover the beauties of the town and organise excursions to Lake Lungo or Lake Ripasottile, for example, the ideal solution is to stay at the Hotel Quattro Stagioni.
Hotel Quattro Stagioni
Hotel Quattro Stagioni is housed in an elegant early 20th century building on Piazza Cesare Battisti, right in the historic centre of Rieti, a stone's throw from the city's Romanesque cathedral.
The hotel allows visitors to step back in time: the opulence of yesteryear can be felt in the rooms, with Murano glass chandeliers, draped curtains and elegant period furniture. Those who decide to stay at the Hotel Quattro Stagioni will have every kind of service at their disposal, feeling pampered both in the rooms and in the public areas. Highly qualified staff will welcome guests at the 24-hour reception, and room service will satisfy guests' requests at all hours. There is also free wifi in the rooms and public areas, laundry service, newspapers available at all times and access for the disabled.
A stay like a king in the heart of Rieti
The hotel is located in the historic centre of Rieti, making it perfect for those who love to walk through the city's alleys. The hotel also offers a car rental service for those planning excursions around the city.
The Winter Garden is the hotel's jewel, with its splendid glass ceiling and coloured prisms, where business meetings, banquets and receptions are held.
The Hotel Quattro Stagioni boasts 43 rooms, some of which overlook the beautiful Dolphin Fountain in Piazza del Comune, while others look out over the verdant gardens of the Prefecture, embellished by the famous Loggia del Vignola.
For those who want to feel pampered like a prince, there are three more refined options: the Suite, with classic furniture, a view of Rieti's historic centre and elegant sitting rooms; the Storica, which in the past hosted Claretta Petacci and Mussolini; and Family, a two-storey flat with balconies overlooking Piazza del Comune.
