Apartment Umbertino is a most comfortable and elegant pied-a-terre located right in the centre of Rome. Just five-minutes from Via Veneto (where much of Fellini’s classic film La Dolce Vita was filmed) and quarter-of-an-hour from the Italian capital’s magnificent Spanish Steps, this luminous and tranquil apartment awaits you on the second floor of a fine 19th-century palazzo.
Measuring around 120 sq mt Apartment Umbertino is situated in a residential area, built during the reign of Italy’s King Umberto I, hence the name.
Somewhat busy during office hours, by evening time the zone has acquired a calm, peaceful atmosphere with none of the late night hubbub that can disturb more touristy districts.
Guests at Apartment Umbertino will find several well-equipped grocery shops and stores in the vicinity catering to all essential needs.
With such world-famous sights as Navona Square , the Fountain of Trevi and the Coliseum all close by, Apartment Umbertino is the ideal choice for a romantic get-to-know Rome break or leisurely business or family trips.

Tastefully furnished (including several antique pieces dating to the early 19th century), Apartment Umbertino has parquet flooring and central heating throughout. The front door opens onto a spacious drawing room with two sitting areas and windows overlooking the palazzo’s internal courtyards.
An arch separates the drawing room from the dining room.
A long corridor leads to the rest of the apartment with windows again giving onto the larger courtyard.
