CCR’s Closing Cocktail - June 19, 2011

Summer Arrivederci Amongst the Stars

This year's closing cocktail event is sure to be one to remember! A rooftop patio in one of Rome's finest 5 star hotels.

One of the world's most beautiful terraces is to be found in Rome, at the Grand Hotel de la Minerve. This is no exaggeration, as it is in fact the only terrace to overlook the dome of the Pantheon in all its glory, from both a significant height and an impressive vicinity. Amongst the city’s many monuments, the dome of St. Ivo's Church, built by Borromini in 1642, and the roof terrace of the Quirinale are clearly outlined against the Roman sky. If instead one looks down into the square, one sees one of the great Bernini’s most curious works: a miniature elephant bearing an obelisk.

The stunning complex of the Grand Hotel de la Minerve was built in 1620 for the aristocratic Fonseca family, an important Roman family of Portuguese origin. Since the end of the 1700s the building has been used as a hotel.
