Enjoy

Minerva's Treasure is a gracious and warmly welcoming apartment in the most exclusive neighborhood in the center of Rome, the Spanish Steps quarter. It is decorated with fine style, beautiful art and lovely marble floors.   

Location

Situated along the Tiber river in the Spanish Steps area, it is a 5-minute walk to Piazza del Popolo and Via del Corso.  There is much to see and do in the immediate neighborhood. Piazza del Popolo is the grand entrance to the neighborhood where you can linger to enjoy street life and open space that leads uphill through the Pincian gardens to the expansive Borghese Gardens. Enter the outwardly unremarkable Santa Maria del Popolo church next to the Roman gate to find a treasure of art: three Caravaggio paintings and more! Walk along Via di Ripetta/Via della Scrofa, window shopping at antique stores, enjoy a casual dinner at PizzaRé for authentic Neapolitan pizza, spend an hour at the Ara Pacis museum to take in the splendor of the “ Ara Pacis”, or Altar of Peace, a masterpiece built in 13 B.C. commemorating Emperor Augustus whose reign introduced two centuries of relative peace within the empire. A contrast of modern and ancient, the museum, designed by Richard Meier, opened in 2006 to much controversy about the modern style. A further contrast is the adjacent hulking ruin of the tomb of Augustus whose round, domed shape echoes the Pantheon and Castel Sant’Angelo. Stroll through the Mussolini-era arcade nearby with its imposing Fascist architecture, best known for Alfredo’s, where Fettucine Alfredo was invented, now revitalized to include many interesting and hip restaurants, such as Gusto, a food emporium with a restaurant, wine bar, pizzeria, and cafe. Find favorite restaurant La Campana along the route to the Pantheon area, then indulge in artisanal gelato at Giolitti, Grom or San Crispino. 

Exterior

Inspired by the beautiful art in the apartment, Minerva's Treasure is named after the Roman/Etruscan goddess of wisdom and sponsor of arts. 

The fine building is characteristic of this part of Rome and is a coveted neighborhood prized for its great location, easy access to both sides of the Tiber river and convenience to the subway, taxi stand in Piazza del Popolo and many neighborhood restaurants and shops. 

Interior

From a large entry, enter a bright living room that has seating for all with a sofa and two arm chairs. A crystal chandelier enhances the tasteful decor. A large window overlooks the tree-lined street that faces the Tiber river; there are no facing buildings so there is a lot of natural light. A narrow park dense with mulberry trees separates the street below from the river and the river road. Most of the year, the view is predominately the green of the trees.

The sofa can be made up as a double sized sofa bed.

The spacious entry in the center of the apartment serves double duty as a dining area with a drop-leaf table that opens up to seat four. 

Very fine paintings and lovely decorative elements throughout.

The kitchen is small but efficient, everything is within arm's reach. A large window faces the back, overlooking the inner courtyard and buildings across the way. There is a full size refrigerator with separate freezer compartment, 4-burner gas stove, oven, dishwasher, double sink, drip coffee maker, microwave, pots, pans, dishes.

Bedrooms

The master bedroom is compact with good closet space. The bed is double sized. The room is painted a rich warm red and has two sets of windows that face the center of the block, looking towards other buildings across the way. The bathroom, done in dramatic black, is en suite. 

The second bedroom also has a double bed and a built-in closet. The window overlooks the street and Tiber river. 

The beds, including the sofa bed, are 55" wide x 79" long. This is 1" wider than a North American double and 5" less than a queen. They are 4" longer than North American double bed. 

Bathrooms

The master bathroom is en suite with large enclosed shower, sink, toilet and bidet. 

The second bathroom is accessed off the center foyer and has a shower, sink, toilet. 

Both bathrooms are marble-tiled and are compact, cleverly designed to fit within the limited space.

Our Review

Gracious and bright apartment with quality furnishings, interesting decorating and fine art.

High quality windows greatly reduces traffic noise from street below but some typical street and city noise reaches the front bedroom and living room.

Beds are slightly larger than North American doubles.

Excellent location.

Our Guest Reviews

Every step of the way working with Italy Perfect was indeed PERFECT.
Oct 2018

I just returned from spending a month at MINERVA’S TREASURE in Rome, Italy. Every step of the way working with Italy Perfect was indeed PERFECT. The moment I arrived I was met by the most amazing greeter Daniela who walked me through everything I needed to know about the unit and the area. She was patient and took her time answering any questions I had. The apartment was spotless and beautifully decorated. The bed/mattress was extremely comfortable. The restaurants Daniela recommended were all superb. Casa Restaurant was steps away and so so delicious but just a few blocks away were other amazing eateries and shops. The kitchen was well stocked with all the pots, pans and utensils that I needed to prepare some delicious meals for myself during my stay. The location was perfect in every way. I walked everywhere. What a plus having a washer/dryer in the apartment. Rare in Italy. The Wifi was excellent so I was able to respond to work daily. I highly recommend using Italy Perfect as your vacation rental experts. I also have used Paris Perfect in the past. Two well run companies.

Great apartment in a great area!
Jul 2018

Perfect spot for our family for a week in Rome! We were met at the apartment by Daniela and she was extremely helpful with information about the apartment and the area, Everything was very clean and the apartment was well appointed. Perfect spot to return to after sightseeing in the area. Best part was a great restaurant called Casa just right outside the door. Highly recommend it if you stay at this spot.

Had a wonderful trip. Apartment was great. Nice location, thanks for all the restaurant tips. Having an apartment for a week allowed us to spread out and relax really appreciated that ability.

Great Apartment in a Great Neighborhood
Apr 2017

Overall, the accommodations were fantastic. the location was perfectly situated near many shops, grocery stores and was a local neighborhood so it was less touristy so the restaurants were more authentic to what locals enjoy.

This apartment was well appointed with comfortable bedding, well lit, very roomy. We were extremely comfortable and felt safe and secure in this location and appreciated this recommendation from ItalyPerfect and the greeter was very kind and helped with any questions we had. We highly recommend this apartment to friends and family!!

We highly recommend using MyTaxi to help with transportations. We never waited more than 5 minutes and the app took care of the charges.

We do recommend the front windows to be double insulated or something to help block the street noise.
[Thank you Burt, we are pleased you enjoyed your stayed. The Italy Perfect Team]

Minerva is really a treasure
Oct 2016

My husband and I had a great stay at this beautiful apartment. Pat at Italy Perfect was super helpful in our choice of unit and area. Our greeter at the apartment was waiting for us on arrival and was very nice and informative.
The apartment is lovely and in a great area. The pre-arrival info is very helpful. I would definitely recommend Italy Perfect and Minerva's Treasure.
P.s. We enjoyed Il Buca dei Ripetta around the corner and Emma's was great!

Enjoyable stay

Minerva's Treasure was truly a pleasure to stay in. The apartment is bright, very nicely furnished and so well located. Our greeter Daniela was a delight, so sweet and helpful. We would stay here again and would recommend the fine services of Italy Perfect.
