Rome Luxury Suites are on and around Via Margutta, one of Rome’s most beautiful and characterful streets. Alberto Moncada di Paterno began Rome Luxury Suites here in the gracious buildings that his great grandfather had built as artists’ studios in the 18th century. Today it’s still known as the artists’ street, and it’s not unusual to see a restorer working in the sunshine, and locals stopping to chat to the marmoraro (marble carver).
Debussy, Liszt, Puccini and Wagner are all said to have lived on Via Margutta, and Stravinsky came here with his friend Pablo Picasso. It was also a centre for cinema – Gregory Peck’s apartment in Roman Holiday was here, and director Federico Fellini lived on the street for many years.
Via Margutta is incredibly central, only a few minutes from Piazza del Popolo, Spanish Steps and the designer sparkle of Via Condotti, yet is quiet and with a local, neighbourhood feel. Let us introduce you to our favourite local haunts, its boutiques and artisans.
