Appartamento Palazzo dei Fabii
This charming unique loft/apartment is situated in the Jewish Ghetto, the location is deep in the heart of historical Rome just beside the imposing Theatre of Marcello.
The medieval “Palazzo dei Fabii”, where the property is located, was built in 1432 on top of the remains of a Roman market (the Portico of Filippo cent. II° A.D.). At the beginning of the 20th century it was converted into private apartments. "Palazzo dei Fabii" is one of the best preserved medieval buildings in Rome, its original architecture of the internal court yard makes it one of the main attractions of the “Jewish ghetto”.
Ghetto area is one of the oldest and genuine neighbourhood of Rome: here lives a part of the Jewish Roman community, which is over 2000 years old. Moreover, this beautiful archeological area features many attractions such as the marvellous Portico d’Ottavia and the imposing Theatre of Marcello, a wonderful open air Roman ruin, and the amazing Synagogue.
At night, stepping outside the building you will have the unique sensation of being immersed in the historical past of Rome's most typical quarter, famous for its many "trattoria" restaurants where one enjoy excellent food in a characteristic setting. (the Jewish cookery is probably the ‘real’ Roman cookery).
The Jewish Ghetto has a low key village atmosphere.
On weekends, especially in spring and summer, as the sun sets and the traffic roar dies down, clusters of locals meet for an early evening chat, perched on the steps or seated at the outdoor tables of one of the cafes. The position is also strategic: right on the back of the Capitol hill, Campo de’ Fiori, Navona Square, with the romantic delight of the Isola Tiberina at an arm's stretch and Trastevere, the Roman Forum and the shopping area of the centre just a bit further.
