Via delle Muratte | 829,000 euros ($896,000)

A one-bedroom walk-up apartment near the Trevi Fountain

This one-bedroom, one-bath apartment is on the top floor of a four-story 18th-century building near the Trevi Fountain. Built in the Renaissance style, it features cornices above the windows and wood shutters. An inscription above the main entry has the Latin motto, “Ne Gloriari Liberat Alienis Bonis” (“Do not boast of the merits of others”), taken from an ancient fable by Phaedrus.

Via delle Muratte is a busy pedestrian passage constructed of sampietrini pavement — the black basalt cobblestones typical of Rome’s ancient streets — and lined with cafes and shops catering to tourists. Nearby landmarks include the Pantheon, Galleria Doria Pamphilj, the Quirinal presidential palace and museum, and the historic Theater Quirino Vittorio Gassman. Also nearby are the Via Corso, a fashionable shopping street, and Giolitti, Rome’s famous gelateria.

The neighborhood is served by buses and the No. 8 tram line at Piazza Venezia. The Barberini and Spagna metro stations are nearby, as is Termini, Rome’s main train station, recently renovated to include dining and shopping.

The foyer and living room (with built-in bookshelves) are in an open, adjoined format separated by a partial partition; the other rooms spur off from a long hallway, with the bedroom at the far end.

The updated eat-in kitchen has stainless steel appliances and cabinetry, as well as integrated pantry storage. The tiled bathroom has been updated with a walk-in shower and small tiles. The bedroom has an ample closet.
