Italy Travels: La Posta Vecchia Hotel

Looking to stay somewhere that is serious about beauty? Do you want to be close to Italy’s historical sights, and everything Rome has to offer? -While still being close to the beach? Fuzzy about interiors? Demanding of standards?  Then La Posta Vecchia Hotel, thirty minutes from Rome, is the place for you.

The Medici Suite

La Posta Vecchia was built in the 17th century and used to be part of ancient Alsium, a port city, originally Etruscan but later Roman, which was covered over in subsequent centuries by new buildings, like Castello Odescalchi and its outbuilding of the castle, owned by the Orsini family, one of the oldest families in Rome. Following its sale in 1693, and a devastating fire in 1918, the American billionaire J. Paul Getty purchased the property in the 1960s, transforming it into his seaside home. For several decades, it was the home of J. Paul Getty, who, alongside art historian Federico Zeri, decorated it with unique furnishings from the 15th and 17th centuries and precious artwork from around the world. The villa’s recent history began in the 1980s, when the private home was purchased by the Sciò family, who used it as their private residence until 1989. In 1990, Roberto Sciò turned it into a luxury hotel.
