Unique charm and a strategic location from which to explore the Eternal City in all its splendour, with the additional comfort of elegant modern furnishings. The abundant light that bathes its spacious rooms is also an invitation to venture out onto a vast, sunny terrace to relax on comfortable lounges sipping an aperitif or taking a bit of sun.
Surrounded by the vibrant, ancient city, the views reach over the tops of the trees that shade the banks of the River Tiber. We are on the top floor of an 18th century palace in the heart of the Italian capital, adjacent to the renowned Piazza del Popolo – the most Parisian of the city’s piazzas – designed by the architect Valadier. This immense, elliptical piazza is flooded with light and adorned with no less than three Renaissance churches, each rich in artistic masterpieces, three fountains and a 24-metre high Egyptian obelisk. The “Pincio” (one of the city’s famous seven hills) overlooking it from its north side, is one of Rome’s most celebrated promenades, historically frequented by the city’s common folk, middle class and nobility alike, as well as by high-profile clergy and even the Pope himself.
The apartment is handy to everything on foot; in fact, a trident of roads, distinguished by both urban myth and noble history, lead to the Spanish Steps and a well-known luxury shopping district and from there on to the Pantheon, Campo dei Fiori and the Colosseum.
Return in the evening to relax and watch the sunset from the terrace as the lights begin to twinkle over the city – to once again venture out and enjoy the scintillating vitality of Rome after dark.
