LANDINI ROME ITALY PERFECT APARTMENT
Enjoy a spacious apartment with a glorious private terrace in the heart of Rome.
Rome lovers who return year after year always look for apartments in this prized Campo de' Fiori area where they are transported to an old world city with its winding streets lined with buildings that date from the 1400s - 1800s. The Campo de' Fiori piazza itself hosts the oldest open-air market in Rome where you can shop daily for field-fresh vegetables, fruits and flowers. Piazza Navona, another justly famous Roman gathering place lies a five minute walk beyond Campo de' Fiori.
Built in the mid-1500s, this noble palace is still home to a family that traces its history through military leadership for the Bourbon kings of Naples and Sicily and whose history is interwoven with Italy's. The Palazzo opens onto a small piazza with the graceful Turtle Fountain. Enter through the massive front door that is staffed with a doorman during business hours into a well-kept courtyard. Look up to see fragments of frescoes from the Renaissance period on the interior walls. The small elevator is fine for getting your luggage up to your apartment, but you may find yourself enjoying trips up and down the formal staircase to soak in the regal feel of the building and maybe get a glimpse into the palatial apartments on the second floor, the "piano nobile." Walk by the apartment on the third floor that was used in the film The Talented Mr. Ripley.
The roomy Landini apartment opens into a large and bright living room that is furnished with seating for all guests. The outer foyer off the landing is not impressive but once inside the apartment it is roomy and comfortable.
The dining room with handsome antique table and chairs seats six and is a separate room from the living room. The kitchen is compact but has adequate counter space that is augmented with a rolling butcher block cart.
Rising from the living room, a circular staircase reaches the expansive rooftop terrace. As large as the entire apartment, 1400 square feet, it offers rooftop views of the Eternal City and enjoyment of the usually mild seasonal temperatures of Rome. The terrace is furnished with an umbrella, iron table and chairs as well as two large upholstered lounges. Vine covered trellises define the space.
The master bedroom with queen sized bed, antique armoire and desk is spacious and receives light from its window on an internal courtyard. The views to the courtyard are not scenic but it does make this room very quiet for sleeping. In the en-suite bath, appreciate the contemporary design of the large ceramic basin on an iron vanity with clever towel bar in front and matching mirror. There is a tub with movable "telephone" style shower head that has a bracket to form a shower head.
The second bedroom has twin beds that can be made up together. It overlooks narrow Via del Falegnami that can get some street noise from nighttime revelers. The en-suite bath has a shower with both movable and fixed, rain-style shower heads.
The third bedroom has two twin beds, antique armoire and desk and also overlooks Via del Falegnami. The bath is across the hall and has movable and fixed shower heads.
