If you’re serious about seeing the start of the marathon in style, finding a hotel near the Via dei Fori Imperiali is essential.
One of Rome’s most important roads, the area is a goldmine of historical wonders, so you’ll struggle to find accommodation in the immediate vicinity. To make sure you beat the crowd and get a first-rate view of the 2021 marathon, opt for hotels in the city centre itself, just a short stroll from the starting pen.
Rome offers some of the most luxurious accommodations anywhere in Italy, with even basic rooms and budget hotels still offering the chance to relax in style. Once the race itself is over, you’re only a short walk from beautiful squares and streets in the centre of town, offering the perfect place to wine and dine your way through lunch or dinner, or just enjoy the scenery.
Even if you find hotels near the start or finish line fully booked, the marathon course itself meanders through some of the most beautiful landmarks in Rome, including world-famous monuments like the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon.
If you’re priced out of hotels in the more sought after locations, consider opting for accommodation somewhere else along the course to allow you an up-close view of the action, amidst stunning surroundings.
In 2020 the 36th edition of the Rome Marathon was not held on Sunday 05th of April. This Marathon has been cancelled over fears of the coronavirus. In 2021 Rome awaits you on the 19th of September.
