From Home to Rome is particularly proud to be back in the Jewish Ghetto: thanks to Catalana al Ghetto, the newest addition to our catalogue of vacation rentals, FHTR is once again in one of Rome’s most exclusive, most central areas with a magnificent managed property.
The history of the Jewish Ghetto in Rome is intrinsically tied to the history of the city itself, and Catalana al Ghetto is on the top floor of one of the borough’s most recent buildings, designed when Rome became a capital by tearing down part of the area’s disgraceful walls and unsound slums, which for centuries had housed people in terrible conditions.
The metropolis was striving for modernity, and Catalana al Ghetto is the perfect symbol of these two universes: an elevator (a rare amenity, around these parts!) will take you to a renovated residence where contemporary taste and materials such as concrete and neon lights coexist with the rich weight of the past, represented by the owners’ tasteful choices in decor.
Rich in natural light and with big windows facing both the Great Synagogue and the astounding Porticus of Octavia, Catalana al Ghetto lives on the edge between modern and ancient: by staying here, you can enjoy both! The Capitoline Hill, Trastevere, Tiber Island, the monument to Victor Emmanuel, the Theatre of Marcellus are just some of the landmarks and monuments at your fingertips if you choose this accommodation, which can sleep up to six people.
