It doesn’t take long to realise that the owner of this delightful penthouse apartment has seen the world. Unique objet d’art and heavy-set exotic furniture betray a love for travel, with a particular passion for the Far East.
And yet, this one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment’s Roman character shines through, too. Not least on the terrace, where we suggest enjoying your first espresso of the day while looking over the terracotta-tiled tetti (rooftops) in every direction.
On the rare days that il cielo di Roma (Rome’s skies) isn’t blue, there’s something deeply comforting (and romantic) about sitting in front of the fireplace and flicking through one of the owner’s many travel books – or playing a quiet game of chess.
Tiber Penthouse is set in the throng of the popular Popolo district, which is within walking distance of the Piazza del Popolo, The Belvedere at Villa Borghese and the main shopping street of the city, Via del Corso.
