A stay at Arco dei Tolomei includes velvet furniture passed down through generations, charming floral-wallpapered rooms, and a dapper Italian hotelier. At least that's what Design Tripper 's Meghan McEwen had to say when she stayed at the guest house a while back. Longtime owners Marco and Gianna remodeled their old family house into a B&B comprised of six bedrooms. Marco has designed the house with a classically Roman flair in line with his own demeanor. McEwen describes him as, "a true Italian gentleman, who wears button-down shirts under sweaters and looks absolutely dashing at all times." Arco dei Tolomei is located at Via Dell'Arco de Tolomei in Rome's laid-back Trastevere neighborhood; for more information, visit them online. Photography by Design Tripper (except where noted).

Above: Each room is named after Rome's Great Consular Roads: the Appia, Salaria, Flaminia, Nomentana, Cassia, and the Aurelia. Shown here is the Appia room; photography courtesy of Arco dei Tolomei .
