A stay at Via di Pietra, an ultra-luxurious penthouse apartment, right in the centre of historic Rome, will come with some very enticing extras for those wanting to get the absolute maximum out of their Roman experience. The very well-connected owner here has contacts for, and can arrange, almost everything you could imagine, from the city’s top archaeologists, art historians, wine sommeliers, and Michelin-rated chefs.
If you want to walk through the Roman Forum, visit Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel, or view sculptures by Bernini and churches by Bramante, special guides can be arranged. If you have been to Rome many times already, you may want to challenge the experts to surprise you with ancient ruins or Baroque churches you’ve never seen. Or let the experts take you to one of the city’s important temporary art exhibitions. If you’d like a private, intimate dinner at home, there will be no problem to have one of the city’s top chefs to come to cook for you. You can watch the master chef prepare your meal, or sip aperitif on the terrazzo and relax as the meal is served to you.
Situated in a 17th Century palazzo, and meticulously decorated and furnished to the highest of standards, including a terrace overlooking the rooftops of old Rome, it is hard to a better location. The apartment overlooks the ancient Column of Marcus Aurelius and the elegant Piazza Colonna, and is just a couple of minutes from the Pantheon. The best shopping areas, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Piazza Navona are all within an easy walk.
