Completely restored between 2009 and 2011, the structure used to be the ancient Albergo della Luna (dating back to the year 1368).
It is remembered as the first hotel in the Eternal City, and Paduan architect Francesco da Carrara – also a guest here – designed its fireplace during the hotel’s inaugural year. With the presence of a half-moon on its facade, the hotel was referred to as “La Lunetta” beginning in 1782.
Also testifying to this Palazzo’s significant historic character is what is found beneath it: during the course of recent restoriation works, remains of the Antico Teatro di Pompeo (55 B.C.E.) were found, with its walls visible to guests today, thanks to crystal panels that look onto and preserve these magnificent vestiges.
Not only, but within these ancient walls is the high point of the Hotel Lunetta experience: its spa, over 300 sq m of modern comfort and indulgent treatments within age-old elegance.
Old and modern aptly meld to create a unique, refined environment, the ideal backdrop to your discovery of this marvelous, millenary city. Take it all in while you enjoy all the accommodations of a true 4-star experience.
