5.0

This is a gem of a home for anyone who has a love and appreciation for all that 16th-century Rome had to offer. Built centuries ago by a Roman aristocrat, the space has been beautifully preserved and restored; with the abundance of art, antiques and space, you really get a sense of how high society lived. Stepping into the grand living room, you'll be struck by the original Renaissance ceilings and ornamented fireplace. Pick from a coffee table magazine or, better still, head to the refined library area in the room next door for an extensive literature collection and settle down for an afternoon read amid regal furnishings and adornments. Through to the bedrooms, and it's much of the same elegance and sophistication found in the rest of the home, albeit with an art deco and modern influence that we really love – and a special mention to the glorious marble en-suite bathroom. Guests in search of an added sense of luxury can also request cooks and daily live-in help – the building has a concierge too. You won't need to lift so much as a finger here. Located in a typical, quiet street under ten minutes from the Piazza Navona and Campo de' Fiori - fruit and veg market by day, trendy drinking spot by night - you've got a wealth of upscale shops and traditional restaurants, not to mention historic points of interest, right on your doorstep.

About Navona

Stretching from Piazza Navona to the river, the area is one of the most atmospheric in the city. The Piazza, with its Bernini statues and Borromini church, is the main draw, but there are any number of golden palazzos, many with inner courtyards to explore. The area is sliced in two by Corso Vittorio Emmanuele, one of Rome's most frenetic roads, but you can dive down the nearest sides street...
