Prestigious and Historic Palace in Trastevere, Rome
In Rome's most picturesque and charming district, in a magical corner of ancient medieval memory, a prestigious Patrician Palace of over 2,000 m2 dating back to the 15th century, which belonged to the Trastevere branch of a noble Roman family and is now an exclusive residence of high representation.
LOCATION & LIFESTYLE
The palace overlooks the banks of the Tiber, in front of the picturesque Tiber Island. Crossing the nearby Palatine Bridge, a few steps lead to the Temple of Vesta, the Circus Maximus, from which, by skirting the Arch of Constantine, one reaches the Colosseum and the archaeological areas of the Roman Forum and Imperial Fora. Taking historical paths on the other side, one can easily reach historical sites such as Palazzo Farnese, Campo de' Fiori, the Pantheon and Piazza Navona in a few minutes. All of the aforementioned monumental places are within walking distance.
This particular and prestigious palace consists of an elegant complex of 14th-century houses built by a noble Roman family in the picturesque Trastevere district. In the 1960s, the palace was divided internally into the side building and the main part of enormous historical and architectural value. Today, it is one of the oldest and most prestigious palaces in Rome, ideal as a residence of great representation or as the seat of an important foundation.
