Villa Tartaruga is on the first floor above ground level (no elevator) in a historic 16th century palace located in the heart of the ancient Jewish quarter in Rome. The original building was constructed for the noble monsignor and has been renovated by its current owners who expanded it and commissioning highly acclaimed architects and painters from Rome.
After a day of immersing yourself in Rome’s treasures, you can return to your private palazzo and admire beautifully restored ceiling frescoes of the esteemed Cavalier d’Arpino, a painter that commanded Rome’s attention during the Baroque period. He was one of the early teachers of Caravaggio, Gaspard Poussin, and the brothers Taddeo and Federico Zuccari. This is just one example of the many frescoes in the palazzo.
Five luxurious bedrooms and six baths provide comfort and privacy for up to 12 guests as well as a spacious living room and grand billiard room. The grand living room is decorated with a ceiling fresco that illustrates the Allegories of the Months and the Seasons, a masterpiece by the Zuccari brothers. The towering windows overlooks an iconic piazza and fountain that is a one of Rome’s highlights. The main floor has recently been completely renovated with the highest standards to retain all of its historical characteristics but integrated with state-of-the- art comforts for a luxurious and comfortable stay in the Eternal City.
If you are seeking a grand experience in the Eternal city, Villa Tartaruga is an ideal accommodation.
Minimum 3 night stay, with a 6 night minimum stay during Christmas, New Year’s and Easter.
