The history of Hotel Caravita
Hotel Caravita is located in the most enviable position in Rome, in the heart of the city, just a few steps away from the city's most iconic sites and monuments. Here You will feel at home, welcomed into an elegant 19th-century historic building in Via del Caravita 5 - a side street of Via del Corso - from which the hotel takes its name. You will experience the pleasure of staying in the centre of the picturesque setting of the Rione Pigna and feel as if You were part of the history of ancient Rome. The tradition of Via del Caravita is mainly linked to that of the Jesuit Order and there are many anecdotes and legends surrounding it. Formerly known as Via dei Fervitori, it was only at the end of the 18th century that it was so christened in homage to the Jesuit Father Pietro Caravita, who in the 17th century founded a religious order dedicated to St Francis Xavier and Our Lady of Pity, and had the Baroque Oratory named after him built here in 1631. The latter was inaugurated by Monsignor Altieri on 8 September 1633. Above all, there are two curiosities that make our historic street a true Roman treasure. At the Oratorio Caravita, adjacent to the Hotel Caravita, a still adolescent Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart performed in 1770. While at the corner of the street the first real bar in Rome was opened in 1725: the Caffè del Veneziano (also mentioned by the Roman poet Giuseppe Gioachino Belli in his sonnet 'Le notizzie de l'uffisciali').
