Exceptionally large and luxurious apartment located in a historical palace by the famous turtle fountain, it features frescoes from the 16th and 17th centuries.

The formal staircase with its red carpet lets you rise to the Piano Nobile - the formal floor, the 1st floor European designation for the members of the noble owner's family and reception of visitors. Be sure to re-watch the classic movie The Talented Mr. Ripley with Matt Damon and find yourself opening the door to Ripley's apartment, now completely renovated, of course!

On the main level is a spacious living and dining room. The design is intriguing with comfortable seating combined with modern pieces. An antique fireplace adjoins a minimalist self-serve bar. Modern art is a pleasant contrast with the gorgeous coffered ceiling with frescoes. 

The billiard room is a special amenity with the billiard table and an exceptional set of frescoes below a ceiling fresco 'Arming Aeneas' by Cavalier d'Arpino from early in the 1600s. 

Pass through the billiards room to find the full kitchen.
