The Monti quarter


   This elegant apartment is at the first raised floor of an original eighteen century palace, located in the "Monti" characteristic quarter, where the architect and sculptor Bernini lived.

The palazzo

The palazzo

The pictures show Via (street) Panisperna in 1880 (something to expect from the "Eternal City"), in 2000, and finally the "palazzo" (palace) in the right photo. The palace is first to the left, with the arches in the ground floor, facing another palazzo completely covered with ivy (in the heart of Rome!).           

In the hall there is a nice frieze (click on the name to see it). The foyer of the apartment is large (5 x 4 Mt), finely furnished and with original sparkling eighteen century "graniglia" marble floor (like the entire apartment). In the foyer there is also a built-in wardrobe (its door can be seen at the right of the master bedroom door).

This impeccable and elegant apartment is 160 sq. meters (1680 sq. feet) large. It is quiet and bright.
It was restored and restyled personally with utmost attention to every detail by the proprietor, a hospitable, kind Doctor in Architecture, who is also an art decorator. The picture at the right shows the foyer.

The foyer


The design and the beauty of the floor of the apartment hardly reveal its antique origin. From the two windows the ivy-mantled facades of the palaces and the little craftsmen shops of Via Panisperna can be seen.

The elegant double sitting /dining room is ample and very bright.
The sun rays illuminate the ample room, painted with delicate pastel shades.

The room has elegant antique furniture, the high vaulted ceilings with stuccos, and the original "graniglia marble" 18th century floor.

There are two original 18th century sofas, which can be used also as beds, armchairs, a wooden table with chairs. Fine paintings, lamps, a chandelier, a bookshelf, a built-in wardrobe complete the furniture. The room is very ample (5x7 meters, 5.5 x 7.7 yards).

Sitting room, opposite view

We consequently had to use special wide angle lens (the result is that the photos are slightly distorted - obviously the room is not).
The bedrooms are elegant.


The room with a king size bed (right) has a wardrobe, bedside tables, a set of drawers, an armchair, pictures and a chandelier. An antique Venetian mirror can be found on the antique set of drawers. The room has double glazing, for total comfort and quiet.

In the opposite view (right) you can see the sitting  room in the background and also understand how large the apartment is.

Twin beds bedroom

The room with twin beds has a Venetian set of drawers, a bookshelf, a bedside table, a mirror. The vaults are high and adorned by stuccos and a chandelier (like all the apartment). The bathroom of this room is behind the white door, were one can find also a fine balcony closed with coloured glasses. The bathroom is sparkling, with shower box.

After the foyer there is a passage space where one has access not only to the twin beds room and to the sitting room, but also to the kitchen and to the master bathroom. The sparkling master bathroom has both bathtub and hand-held shower. The kitchen has the normal appliances (fridge, fires, oven). It includes also a microwave oven.

It is equipped with dishes, cutlery, pots, pans etc.
In the quarter there are many shops and grocery stores and so if you do not want to dine at the numerous restaurants around, you will enjoy cooking. In the restaurants you will find of course the Italian cuisine (with all its variants), but also that of other countries (French, Chinese, Japanese and even the best Indian restaurant in town). There are also many "gelaterie" (ice cream cafes), bars, pastry shops, cozy old fashioned groceries stores, pubs, wineries for connoisseurs etc.


All the appliances are brand new.

From the kitchen there is access to a little balcony for fresh air. In the balcony there is a little room where a brand new washing machine can be found.

The apartment includes as mentioned a brand new washing machine, and a telephone (with answering machine). There is electronically controlled autonomous heating. In Summer 2 large turning fans and 3 portable air conditioners are supplied (one for each room). There is a 27 inch. brand new colour TV (with satellite aerial-dish to see CNN and major European channels). An iron with iron board is supplied. This apartment is equipped with a brand new stereo-HI-FI set, with CD player, tuner and cassette player (the brand is "Sharp").

Finally, let us remember that the palace has a large roof garden terrace (communal) where tenants not only can hang their clothes to dry, but also bask under the sun and dine out.
