Via Veneto apartment description

Within the historic center, a stone’s throw from the Spanish Steps, this penthouse has one of the most magnificent views of Rome you will ever see. From North to South East, the view spans encompasses the gardens of Villa Borghese, Villa Medici (now the French Academy) and its gardens, the towers of the church of Trinità dei Monti, the dome of St.Peter’s, the dome of the Pantheon, the Vittoriano monument, the presidential palace, and all the old roofs and domes that make Rome unforgettable.

Sited at the edge of the Pincio hill, the building was built in the late 1880s and enjoys the luxury of facing only parks and gardens in the immediate vicinity, and seeing the entire bowl of the historic center, all the way to the Gianicolo on the opposite side, without the disadvantage of noise or traffic.

Within walking distance, one can reach Via Veneto with all its cafés and stores, the park of Villa Borghese, and to the west the Spanish Steps which lead to via Condotti and the most elegant boutiques in Rome.

The building has a beautiful classic entrance with concierge. An old wood-trimmed elevator goes up to the top floor. From there the door to the apartment leads to a small stair that takes you further up to the attic level. For convenience, a dumbwaiter was installed to carry suitcases and anything heavy from the top floor to the penthouse

The apartment has one bedroom, two bathrooms, a galley kitchen and a large living room with working fireplace. The living room has unobstructed views of Rome through floor to ceiling windows, and a huge terrace that essentially doubles the living space inside. Two zones of air conditioning for the summer, and an independent boiler for the winter ensure complete climatic control in any season of the year.

                          ARRIVAL POLICY: Since this property is not a hotel, we unfortunately do not have flexibility for your arrival time. YOU MUST MAKE YOUR TRAVEL PLANS TO ENSURE THAT YOU ARRIVE AT THE APARTMENT BETWEEN 4PM AND 7PM. You cannot arrive earlier, because we need time to prepare the apartment for you. You cannot arrive later, because a person who does not live on the premises will be sent specifically to meet you, and this person is not available after hours. If there is a chance that you might arrive late, you should make plans to stay at a hotel and arrive the following day. You will not be reimbursed for the cost of the hotel. This applies also in case of a delay that is beyond your control, such as a flight cancellation, or a train strike. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we cannot accommodate late arrival under any circumstances.

                          Year Purchased: 1888

                          Why the Owner Chose Via Veneto:
                          This apartment has been in the family for four generations.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          When you are in the apartment, it feels like you are in an airship moored on top of Rome. You can leave the hustle-bustle behind, enjoy its breath taking beauty as you take in the relaxing greenery of the gardens in front, and have a drink on the terrace as the sun sets behind Michelangelo's dome.
