Writing to his mother from Rome’s Hotel de Russie, poet Jean Cocteau remarked that he could pick oranges from his balcony, describing the hotel as ""paradise on Earth."" This paradise was later turned into an office building before Sir Rocco Forte fashioned it into one of Rome’s most stylish luxury hotels. The 18th-century terraced gardens remain, but a contemporary-chic design has added polished updates. Fabled restaurant Le Jardin de Russie, where two-Michelin-star chef Fulvio Pierangelini creates Mediterranean dishes, is one of the most romantic places to dine in Rome. Guests can also enjoy afternoon tea or an evening cocktail, including the original De Russie Martini that is served with caviar - a nod to the hotel’s 19th-century clientele who would escape cold Russian winters for Rome’s warmer climate.
