Description

Ever dreamt of going back in time? While taking your morning coffee, you will be able to admire the most famous and best-preserved building from ancient Rome right from your living room window. So, enjoy the contrast of modern and ancient from this beautifully furnished , luxurious and sophisticated one bedroom apartment. Where will you be located? You will be staying in an extraordinary street, which takes its name from the eponymous church, close to which you can admire two monolithic granite columns, discovered only in 1934 under the square of S. Luigi de’ Francesi and part of nothing less than the ancient Terme Neroniane, requested by emperor Nero in 62 AD. In addition to these two columns, two more were discovered and inserted in the vestibule of the Pantheon to replace two missing columns in 1666, and the pink granite column found in 1875 under the Salita de 'Crescenzi and placed in 1896 in front of the Breccia di Porta Pia. At number 8 you will find the 16th century Palazzo Melchiorri Aldobrandini, which later became the property of the Municipality. At the end of the 19th century they decided to have the back of the building cut off to isolate the Pantheon. Notice the archway, with leonine and pulvin adornments decorated with a horizontal stick, the Melchiorri coat of arms.

    Tiber Island

    450.00

    A little more than 300 meters in length and no wider than 90, it is among the smallest inhabited islands in the world and, despite this, houses the monumental 16th century hospital Fatebenefratelli. Myth says that in 291 BC Aesculapius, god of medicine, hid in a Roman ship sailing to Greece in the guise of a snake to seek help from the Gods and save his people from a plague. It is said that on his return the snake escaped from the boat and hid on the island. A temple was erected here to worship him, over the ruins of which the Church of Saint Bartholomy, which today still shelters a miraculous spring, was later built.

    La piccola Lourdes

    559.00

    A short walk from via del Corso, immersed in the festive and chaotic atmosphere of the Roman center, an epigraph marks the entrance of an elegant and simple church: it is Santa Maria in Via, home to a miraculous freshwater spring. The legend tells of a miracle that occurred here in 1256. There is a chapel with an altar inside the building in the far right corner. On this stands an image of the Madonna del Pozzo. This is a symbol of the wooden tablet that the owners of the stable that is now the church saw floating in the water of their well. This is where the chapel was built and where to date the faithful continue to drink water, which is said to have miraculous properties. The journalist will explain what extremely rare organoleptic characteristics make this water so pure, without betraying the mystical and suggestive atmosphere of this little Lourdes in the heart of Rome.

    From the ’20s to murals with a poetess

    650.00

    The first stone of one of Rome’s most famous neighbourhoods - Garbatella, or as it is affectionately called "La Rossa" - was placed by King Vittorio Emanuele III in the 1920s. The area soon became populated by people displaced from the medieval quarters of the city, who had been evicted from the center to allow for the construction of Via dei Fori Imperiali. Garbatella, which today still retains its popular character, is located near Tor Marancia, another popular neighbourhood that in recent years has undergone surprising development thanks to the extraordinary works of street art by artists from all over the world. In the midst of this open-air contemporary art gallery you will find typical restaurants, local delicacies and extraordinarily picturesque corners of the less beaten track in this multifaceted city.
