Donna Camilla Savelli Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

"When in Rome" might be an oft-quoted phrase, but visitors to the Eternal City don't always take its message to heart. And it's clear why: In this bustling metropolis where ancient ruins and Renaissance grandeur rub shoulders with fashion icons and modern architecture, it's difficult to actually take a moment and breathe all of it in the Italian way -- surrounded by friends and family with a glass of wine at hand. Life is meant to be savored, not rushed. Roman hoteliers, at least, understand this. And whether tucked away into courtyards or shimmering under a Roman sun, hotels in this European capital have created their own secret gardens perfect for a little R&R, Italian style. This leafy outdoor garden at the Donna Camilla Savelli -- a historical 17th century monastery converted into a 78-room boutique -- is a relaxing spot for summer breakfasts or evening cocktails. Its charming atmosphere speaks to the rest of the property, which features wood-beamed ceilings, arched hallways, marble floors, and antique-style furniture.

The Hotel Lord Byron is a charming 32-room hotel decorated in a 1930s Art Deco style. This roof garden with gorgeous panoramic views might be reserved for the lucky guest in Suite #603, but the hotel also features a lovely garden down below that everyone is sure to enjoy, especially couples looking to recreate the classic scene from Roman Holiday at the  "Bocca della Verita". Though this might not be the original, it'll certainly work in a pinch -- but remember, no lying! This tranquil property located a bit off the beaten track from Rome's tourist destinations is surrounded by a lush garden and wealthy residences. The relaxed atmosphere offers a welcome respite at the end of a day of sightseeing, with the many guests choosing to take meals outside in the garden or simply lay out and enjoy the great outdoors in an otherwise crowded city. It might only offer a few potted plants in the way of greenery, but your eyes are sure to be drawn elsewhere at this rooftop garden at the Albergo Del Senato, located obviously right next to the Pantheon. The mid-range hotel has its charms and attracts many return customers, but here it really is all about location, location, location. This upscale boutique hotel, with just 12 rooms, is housed in a gorgeous historic mansion less than 10 minutes from the Trevi Fountain. Despite its small size, the hotel goes above and beyond with the amenities, offering a gym, spa, excellent food, and this lovely courtyard garden, with comfortable seating and plenty of secret spaces to explore. Want to make a wish in the Trevi Fountain? Of course you do. Want to make that wish from your hotel's rooftop garden? Obviously. At the Hotel Fontana you can do just that. This small rooftop garden has a few table and chairs and a piano, perfect for sipping on  afternoon drinks while watching the masses down below.  The rest of the hotels is quaint, with clean, compact rooms reminiscent of the hotel's origins as a monastery. But with a view like this, do you really need much more? The Valadier Secret Garden at this luxurious Rocco Forte property near the Spanish steps and Piazza del Popolo is exactly the kind of hidden retreat we love to find in Rome. Housed in an interior courtyard, the space is private to guests and features a variety of seating areas and other nooks and crannies to explore.
