Music wafts across the way from Italy`s master music academy to this regency style apartment with fine antiques, silk upholstery and room to enjoy this elegant neighborhood in the heart of Rome.


Via dei Greci is one of the many interesting streets in the Spanish Steps area of Rome. Closed to traffic, it is knownfor he world-famous National Academy of Music of Santa Cecilia and Saint Anastasious Greek Catholic church and college. You can enjoy concerts at the academy. It is a two minute walk to the very central Spanish Steps Piazza.


Five buildings that date from the 1600s surround a large, quiet courtyard. You`ll come and go through the small door in the carriage gate, but no carriages these days. In fact, no cars or motorcycles in the courtyard, either, just tenants that include a custom violin maker`s shop. Peek in the window to see his wares. A doorman adds a layer of safety.

The courtyard is a quiet oasis in a busy city. It has plantings and many apartment balconies have flowers.

The apartment is on the fourth floor (third, European designation). There is an elevator all the way. There are four or five steps to negotiate as you make your way from street level, across the courtyard and to the elevator.


From the spacious foyer you enter the dining room and then the light-filled living room that has three large windows. One window looks towards the Greek church and the architecture of the dome and the church are pleasant to behold.

The living room has a sofa, two love seats and two unusual sleigh-type chairs as well as a number of large antiques and attractive paintings. The room is large, about 350 square feet.

The dining room is also spacious with side boards and French doors that open onto an internal balcony that is shared with the kitchen. The balcony and French doors that access it bring in good light and really pleasant views of iconic ochre colored Roman buildings.

Fresh with white cabinetry, the kitchen has all appliances including a large refrigerator/freezer and a breakfast bar.

This apartment is very close to the Spagna apartment, so, between them, a group of nine is accommodated.


The master bedroom is old-fashioned with a beautiful brass bedstead and lace coverlet. The color theme is green. You`ll find some nice antique pieces here. The master bedroom overlooks Via dei Greci, and has French doors onto a private balcony where you can enjoy your breakfast. Across the street is the Academy of Santa Cecilia, Italy`s national music academy and you may occasionally enjoy the strains of the master`s level music students practicing.

At the end of the entry hall is the twin bedroom with 2 single beds and a window onto Via dei Greci. The room is large and comfortable and has a pretty antique secretary as well as a bureau. The single beds can be prepared together with advance arrangement.

Guests receive complimentary and helpful documents: 1. FAQ About Renting in Italy, 2. Helpful Information About Rome, and, 3. Our much-appreciated Restaurant list. On request, complimentary children's adventure guide to Italy e-Book.

About Pat Byrne

This apartment is offered by Italy Perfect. We are a family business with a mission! We want you to love visiting Italy as much as we do. We are sisters Lisa and Pat Byrne who lived in Italy in our youth and now travel there frequently for business and pleasure.

We offer only short term rentals that we carefully hand pick for their locations, furnishings, amenities, and that we can personally recommend and would want to stay in ourselves. We travel frequently to inspect, and usually stay in, the rentals we represent. We select vacation rentals that offer charm, good locations, cleanliness, quality furnishings and hospitable welcomes. We count the number of steps up to the property, check the size of the refrigerator, shower, listen for noise, inventory the kitchen equipment and even inspect the mattresses. This is our most important point of differentiation which sets us apart from many other vacation rental firms. Even with careful advance research and personal connections, we still choose to not represent more than 50% of the properties we visit. And, once we agree to represent a property we regularly re-inspect it to ensure our standards are being met.

The Greci

  • 5 of 5

Our Italy Perfect Rental....The Greci.....was PERFECT.

The apartment is located in a great neighbourhood and was very clean and comfortable for our family. It really felt like a home away from home.

Our greeter was very kind and helpful and was waiting for us as soon as we arrived.

We had plenty of everything we needed, from blowdryers to WIFI and plenty adapters for our phones and ipads.

We will definitely stay here again.

Thank you for sharing your apartment.

A fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

The owners are extremely gracious in their welcome and very helpful in all respects. We arrived to find water, juice, crackers and some fresh fruit to get us through the initial settling in process. The apartment is decorated to be stylish and welcoming all at the same time. To give a sense of calm luxury, linens and upholstery are primarily crisp white.

The two bathrooms are equipped with a fixed-head shower as well as a hand-held one.

Both bedrooms have great air conditioning units. The apartment has a small kitchen, but truly well stocked for all your needs. We also a washing machine and a drying rack accessible to us.

The location is terrific. The owners have provided a list of restos and supermarkets in the neighbourhood. We can't wait to come back!

wonderful stay in Rome

  • 5 of 5

The Greci apartment was a perfect home for our week in Rome. A spacious, quiet apartment ideal for our family of 4. The greeter could not have been nicer and easier to work with and got our visit off to a smooth start. I would unconditionally recommend this apartment and Italy Perfect.

A Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

The "Greci" apartment is absolutely delightful. The rooms are gracious, well appointed, and very tasteful. The kitchen is also well equipped. It is located on an extremely quiet street, except for the lovely sounds of classical music from the music academy directly across the street.

The location, near the Spanish Steps, was ideal for us and a great launching point for our daily excursions. Fantastic shopping right from your front steps.

I would also comment very favorably on Italy Perfect. All of the information and logistics were extremely clear and very professional. The entire process was seamless, including the arranged pick-up and our Italian greeter at the apartment. There were no surprises and the apartment was exactly as depicted on the website.

We could not have been more pleased. We have already recommended Italy Perfect and this particular apartment to many of our friends.

I loved staying at the Greci apartment. It is centrally located. It is very quiet except for the occasional lovely musical interludes from the music school across the road. (Santa Cecilia is clearly a music school for advanced students) The apartment was well equipped and suited the three of us (aged 6, 84 and 47) beautifully. Recommended.
