Exclusively located at the top of the Spanish Steps (entrances both on Piazza Trinità dei Monti and Vicolo del Bottino), Il Palazzetto was created by Roberto E. Wirth, President and Managing Director of the nearby Hotel Hassler. One of the most spectacular hideaways in the very heart of Rome, this is the very same area where the spectacular banquets of Lucullus once took place. Built in the 1500s, Il Palazzetto was for many years the retreat of a noble Roman family that preferred to reside here instead of at their historical palace in Piazza Mignanelli, due to the uniqueness and prestige of the building, an architectural jewel or rare beauty and historical value. In 1999, Roberto E. Wirth, President and Managing Director of the Hotel Hassler, acquired Il Palazzetto with the intention of expanding the brand name of the historical hotel located two steps away at Piazza Trinita dei Monti. Roberto Wirth decided to unite his hospitality skills with his love for good wine, and established Il Palazzetto. Il Palazzetto includes the Wine Bar on its two panoramic terraces overlooking the Spanish Steps, four boutique hotel rooms and a special location for memorable private events
