Casa Berenice is a lovely apartment with all kind of amenities, ideal for a large family or for a group of friends. It can comfortably accommodate up to 7 people.
It is located between the Tiber and Corso Vittorio Emanuele II. In antiquity the district was just on the south of Campus Martius and was chosen by Pompey for the construction of several important buildings. The narrow streets around Campo dé Fiori contain simple houses and austere noble palaces that stand side by side in quiet harmony in the unassuming lanes. Some of the most important tourist places in the area are the Area Sacra del Largo Argentina, the Chancery Palace, the Palazzo Farnese, the Cappella del Monte di Pietà, the Pantheon.
The building is very close to Campo De' Fiori, (1 minute walk), it goes back to Medieval times, with its foundations on the walls of Pompey's Theater (I century B.C.), a huge piece of marble which can still be seen in the hall. The first four floors go back to Middle Age; the last two were added in the 18th century.
The building has been totally renovated in 1996, whilst the apartment has been renovated in 2008, with all the modern comforts available. It is very elegantly furnished with original medieval 'cassettone' ceilings and 'cotto' flooring.
This accommodation is composed by:
- bedroom with king-size bed;
- bedroom with two single beds;
- living room with double sofa bed + single sofa bed;
The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, fridge, microwave oven, electric oven and a bathtub in every bathroom. Independent heating, air conditioning (heat-dry-cool), flat screen TV, Cable TV and Internet connection are available
So much more could be said about this apartment and its wonderful historical surroundings, but the best thing to do is to experience personally their magic atmosphere.
