Members of The Leading Hotels of the World’s Leaders Club now have the opportunity to discover the Eternal City of Rome and the privilege of a private audience with Pope Benedict XVI.

As part of The Leading Hotels of the World’s latest ‘Once in a Lifetime’ experiences, select travellers will be able to enjoy a two-night stay in a Presidential Suite at the world famous Hotel Hassler Roma situated at the top of Rome's legendary Spanish Steps.

With unforgettable views of Villa Borghese Gardens, St. Peter’s Basilica, the Pantheon and the monument to Victor Emmanuel II from its five balconies, this one bedroom corner suite is decorated with original paintings and classically-styled furniture with a modern accent. There is also a dining area with Swarovski crystals set in the ceiling like so many stars to create a la Dolce Vita experience.

A highlight of this fascinating journey into the ancient and modern ‘Eternal City’ is the rare and private audience that can be arranged with Pope Benedict XVI in a venue not open to the public. Guests are then taken on a private tour in the underground necropolis of St. Peter’s Basilica to see the private tomb of St Peter before finishing with a fascinating carriage ride through the heart of ancient Rome and its famous monuments drenched in history.
