Welcome to The Grand Penthouse, a bright and modern apartment located in a beautiful palazzo on Via Del Corso. Enjoy the views from the spacious open plan living room and take advantage of the magnificent views from the floor to ceiling windows. This marbled floor apartment has three ensuite double bedrooms, decorated with all the essentials. Be delighted by its unique terrace, facing Piazza Venezia, from which you can see all of central Rome. Where exactly will you be located ? We are talking about one of the most important streets of Rome, overflowing with noble buildings and churches. Starting from Piazza Venezia, one after the other, the seventeenth-century Palazzo Bonaparte, the baroque Palazzo Salviati and the Palazzo Odescalchi. Just across from Via del Corso is the well-known Via dei Condotti: from here, strolling amongst high fashion boutiques, one reaches one of the most famous squares in the world, Piazza di Spagna. Look out for the national church of San Carlo al Corso, with the great dome of Pietro da Cortona, and for the church of San Giacomo in Augusta, with the annex of the XIV century hospital, closed 10 years ago. Palazzo Rondinini, on the other hand, is home to the New Chess Club, while Goethe's house is located at number 18. Finally, Piazza del Popolo, with the two churches of Santa Maria in Montesanto and Santa Maria dei Miracoli, and the Flaminio obelisk: the Porta del Popolo constituted the northern access to the city.

    With a special pass at Pope's pharmacy

    550.00

    One step at a time, imagine you are ascending to the first floor of an ancient convent. There, at the end of the staircase, amid ancient bottles, vials and potions, a marvelous blend of ancient knowledge, alchemical belief and religion will be waiting for you. It is the Antica Farmacia di Santa Maria della Scala, inside the eponymous church in Trastevere, in the convent of the Barefoot Carmelite Friars. It was founded in the second half of the 16th century and opened to the public in the 17th century, and became a medical point of reference for cardinals, princes and the papal physicians, so much so that it became known as the Pharmacy of Popes.

    The Galleria Borghese

    Quote on request

    Rome, art and the Papacy. An indissoluble relationship that is perfectly exemplified by the art collection amassed by Scipione Borghese, nephew of the newly elected Pope Paolo V Borghese in the early 17th century. Thus began the construction of the Villa Borghese, which would become the treasure chest to one of the world’s most important private art collections. Let yourself be overwhelmed by Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio and Canova in the Galleria Borghese, symbol of the Roman aristocracy.

    Centrale Montemartini

    Quote on request

    The combination of ancient statues and busts with the technological devices of Rome’s first public electrical power plant is an exciting sight to behold. The plant ceased all activity in the early 1960s and remained out of use until 1997, when it received the loan of a number of sculptures from the Capitoline Museums. This was meant to be temporary, but instead became a permanent exhibition. It represents an extraordinary example of museum conversion, a visual pastiche that results in a very evocative effect.

    Castel Sant’Angelo

    Not far from the Vatican, on the right bank of the Tiber, stands the tomb willed by Emperor Hadrian. A long bridge adorned with angel sculptures leads to the Castel Sant’Angelo, which within its walls holds the nuances of the Eternal City’s past and present. It was also a fortress, a dark and terrible prison and a splendid Renaissance residence. A building that has changed its face and function, closely following the transformations of the city.
