Ecotourism is a growing business in Italy and in the world and we want to mention to hotels in the Italian capital that are particularly eye-catching.
The Eco-Hotel Roma is situated in a nature reserve just a few minutes from the Vatican in the Valle dei Casali.
The name of the valley from the many 16th century building in the area that are surrounded by lush vegetation that is so typical of the meditteranean and especially of the hills surrounding Rome.

Even the transport is environmentally friendly with bicycles available for free for the guests as well as the possibility to rent electric scooters. The Romapass is also available to purchase which includes the use of public transport and entry to the museums and discounts for other events around the city. The rooms are all bright and have balconies overlooking the surrounding area. It is a great place for those who love sports and jogging because of the wide open spaces.
Another structure that catches the eye is the Midori Oriental Suite, a slice of Japan in the heart of the eternal city.
