The Hassler, with Trinita dei Monti in the background, during the 1950s. That was the beginning of one of the most successful periods of Italian tourism.
"Perched on top of the Spanish Steps with panoramic vistas across the Eternal City, the venerable Hassler has been one of the bespoke adresses of Rome since 1885. This fine establishment marries clockwork Swiss efficiency with the kind of romance that comes so naturally to Italians. The hotel is owned by the Wirth family, the famous dynasty of Swiss hoteliers, and has been personally managed for over 20 years by Roberto Wirth."
