A palazzo where past meets present

The beating heart of Ancient Rome

Right in the centre of the Eternal City, where the stately buildings represent the purest essence of Roman history, Palazzo delle Pietre is perfectly positioned for visitors to discover the famous sites and monuments of Rome. A few steps from Via delle Coppelle, Piazza della Rotonda opens up to one of the city’s symbols, the iconic Pantheon, which, with its impressive architecture, has deep roots in the city. This splendid residence is just as close to the famous Piazza Navona, with its elegant buildings and another icon, the Trevi Fountain, and its breath-taking view through the narrow streets of the ancient city centre. Then, wander from via Monferrato to via Condotti, from the Spanish Steps to Via del Babuino to discover the exclusive boutiques, in a heady atmosphere so full of Italian Dolce Vita and contemporary Italian culture and life.

The Pantheon
One of the greatest expressions of Roman glory, the Pantheon, dates to 125 AD when it was built at the request of Emperor Hadrian. It is the best conserved building from Imperial Rome as it was transformed into a church; it was declared a national monument in 1870 by the King of Italy and restored.
Piazza Navona
A gem of the Baroque era, Piazza Navona today is a stunning city square bordered by the buildings that gradually arose on the remains of the ancient Diocletian Stadium. The square boasts the famous three fountains: the Moor Fountain, the Fountain of Four Rivers, and the Neptune Fountain. In its centre stands the unforgettable Fountain of the Four Rivers, by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
Trevi Fountain
The end point of the ancient Virgin Aqueduct, the Trevi Fountain is a masterpiece where water cascades down, melding in with the marble sculpture. It was built in the 18th Century upon the request of Pope Clement XII based on a design by architect Nicola Salvi. The fountain’s name has two possible origins; either it references the meeting of three streets in the square or the three streams of water  flowing into the fountain basin.
Campo de’Fiori
The unforgettable Campo de'Fiori square enshrines authentic Rome, with its elegant buildings and the lively atmosphere of the traditional market. The only monumental square in the historic city centre without a church, its name, “field of flowers” owes to its origins as a meadow in the Middle Ages.
