Music drifts across the way from Italy`s master music academy to this regency style apartment with fine antiques, silk upholstery and room to enjoy this elegant neighborhood in the heart of Rome.


Via dei Greci is one of the many interesting streets in the Spanish Steps area of Rome. Closed to traffic, it is known for the world-famous National Academy of Music of Santa Cecilia Saint Anastasious Greek Catholic church and college. You can enjoy concerts at the academy, check the calendar on the linked page. It is a two minute walk to the very central Spanish Steps Piazza.


Five buildings that date from the 1600s surround a large, quiet courtyard. You`ll come and go through the small door in the carriage gate, but no carriages these days. In fact, no cars or motorcycles in the courtyard, either, just tenants that include a custom violin maker`s shop. Peek in the window to see his wares. A doorman adds a layer of safety.

The courtyard is a quiet oasis in a busy city. It has plantings and many apartment balconies have flowers.

The apartment is on the fourth floor (third, European designation). There is an elevator all the way. There are four or five steps to negotiate as you make your way from street level, across the courtyard and to the elevator.


From the spacious foyer you enter the dining room and then the light-filled living room that has three large windows. One window looks towards the Greek church and the architecture of the dome and the church are pleasant to behold.

The living room has a sofa, two love seats and two unusual sleigh-type chairs as well as a number of large antiques and attractive paintings. The room is large, about 350 square feet.

The dining room is also spacious with side boards and French doors that open onto an internal balcony that is shared with the kitchen. The balcony and French doors that access it bring in good light and really pleasant views of iconic ochre colored Roman buildings.

Fresh with white cabinetry, the kitchen has all appliances including a large refrigerator/freezer and a breakfast bar.

This apartment is very close to the Spagna apartment, so, between them, a group of nine is accommodated.


The master bedroom is old-fashioned with a beautiful brass bedstead and lace coverlet. The color theme is green. You`ll find some nice antique pieces here. The master bedroom overlooks Via dei Greci as well, and has French doors onto a private balcony where you can enjoy your breakfast. Across the street is the Academy of Santa Cecilia, Italy`s national music academy and you may occasionally hear the strains of the master`s level music students practicing.

At the end of the entry hall is the twin bedroom with 2 single beds that can be combined to form a dual-king and a window onto Via dei Greci. The room is large and comfortable and has a pretty antique secretary as well as a bureau.


There are two bathrooms. The master bath is accessed off the corridor then there are four steps up to the master bedroom level. The second bathroom is off the second bedroom.
