Property description

APARTMENT ADDRESS: VIA MECENATE, 27
An exclusive apartment in the heart of Rome, a few hundred metres from the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and all the major archaeological sites as Arch of Costantine, Domus Aurea, Church of Saint Peter in Vincoli (with Michelangelo’s Moses) , the Papal Basilica of the Saint John Lateran, Battistero, Holy Stairs and Sancta Sanctorum, Lateran Palace, Villa Celimontana, Palatino, Circus Maximus, Terme di Caracalla, the Papal Basilica of Saint Mary Major and more…
The area, one of the oldest and most striking in the old town centre, inserted in a context of archaeological sites, antique shops, theatres, bakeries, supermarkets and local markets, restaurants, wine bars and typical Italian cafés, is ideal for visiting also the rest of the city, on foot or by public transport (metro station about 100 metres far, bus stop about 50 metres far). Many shops, all within a short distance, offer the best food available in the city, high quality local products, vegetables of all kinds, local and exotic fruit, wine, cheese from various Italian regions and freshly baked bread.
The apartment is on the fifth floor of a building with a lift, dating from the 19th century. After a day of hard "tourist life", it is the perfect place to relax and recover energy. It is very peaceful and comfortable and since it does not face the road directly, it is away from the noise of city traffic. About two-hundred metres far there is the beautiful park of Colle Oppio where you can visit the home of the Roman emperor Nero; it is a fascinating archaeological oasis with a unique view of the Colosseum and a peaceful corner where you can stroll along the streets or relax on a bench listening to the birds singing or the sounds of the eternal city, all things that will make separation painful when you leave!
During most of the day, a very attentive and vigilant doorkeeper is on duty in the building to check people entering from his lodge. In addition to the main door, another door in the inner courtyard makes the building very safe and quiet.
The apartment, which has the warmth and spaces of old houses, is furnished with modern furniture and attention to detail and many decorative items such as vases, original paintings, mirrors, designer lamps, etc. Upon entering, a large hall with an ancient library leads to two bedrooms, one of which has a bright and roomy relaxation corner, and to a dining area with kitchen and a bathroom with shower. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessary utensils to prepare any meal the guest desires. The apartment is also equipped with every comfort: air conditioning, central heating, flatscreen TV, free H24 wi-fi connection, washing machine, security cellular, safety box, iron with ironing board, hair dryer, bed linen and blankets, bath towels.
A few hundred metres from the apartment stands the basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, one of the four papal basilicas in Rome. Located on top of the Esquiline Hill, it is the only one to have retained the original early Christian structure albeit enriched by successive additions. It was built by Pope Sixtus III (432-440) who dedicated it to the worship of the Virgin, whose divine maternity had just been recognised by the Council of Ephesus (431). It was built on the ruins of a previous church and widespread tradition has it inspired by the Lady herself appearing in a dream to Pope Liberius and the patrician John and suggesting that the appropriate place would be indicated miraculously.
So when the morning of 5 August, an unusual snowfall whitened the Esquiline Hill, Pope Liberius is said to have tracked the perimeter of the new basilica in the snow and it was then built with funds provided by John. The only mention of this old building is in a passage of Liber Pontificalis that says that Liberius "fecit basilicam nomini suo iuxta Macellum Liviae". However, every year on 5 August, in memory of Our Lady of the Snow, a re-enactment of the "miracle of the snow" takes place; during a moving celebration, a cascade of white petals is thrown down from the dome of the Cappella Paolina.
