Navona villa description

To live a day in the life of a 16th Century Cardinal (Pope Sisto V), you would have to travel in a time machine. Luckily, Navona Garden Suites offers the next best thing- a stay in the original apartment of Cardinal Felice Peretti, who later became Pope Sisto V, the 227th pope of the Roman Catholic Church. From 1585 - 1590 he accomplished more than many other longer papacies in just 5 years time.

With a name like 'Papa Peretti' as the Romans called him, one would imagine a ruler of warmth and affection; much to the contrary, Peretti was a strict sovereign who ruled Rome with an iron fist in a velvet glove. Through his style of absolute monarchy, he revitalized Rome with the rebuilding of the aqueducts and roads. He also secured the city state by overseeing a mass execution of criminals and prisoners when first elected Pope, giving him a tough reputation.

You and your guests will enjoy the original living quarters of an authentic 16th-century interior of a Baroque noble palace located on Via Del Governo Vecchio (previously known as Via Papalis, street of the Popes), which is famous today not only for the Papal residences but also traditionally known for its cobble-stoned streets lined with artisan workshops that date back centuries.

To fully experience this beautiful 16th century neighborhood you can go shopping for the freshest food daily in Campo Di Fiori, schedule a cooking lesson with our private chef in Classic Italian Cuisine, a wine and cheese tasting with our certified sommelier, or just relax and enjoy this unique palace of a 16th century cardinal.
