The views from Waldorf Astoria Hotels’ Rome Cavalieri (www.romecavalieri.com; doubles from €270), which stands atop Monte Mario, are rather special. It may be a bit of a schlep into town but, to compensate, the hotel maintains an impressive collection of smart Italian cars, among them a Ferrari F430 F1 Spyder and a Maserati Quattroporte, for hire by the day. Perhaps it’s a sign of the times, then, that the latest addition to its fleet is a diminutive but nippy Fiat 500 Arbarth, which even at €300 a day is a steal compared with the €1,800 cost of the Ferrari.
