Property info

The Palace was built in 1400 and was bought by Cardinal Pierdonato Cesi who had it restructured and refurbished, turning it into an antiques and art museum, and installing a well-endowed library. Today, the Generalate of the Salvatorians has converted part of the building into an elegant and exclusive “welcoming home”, with 29 rooms all fully equipped with every amenity. Each room is a small cosy haven, furnished with taste and style. Here the guests can personally experience the spirituality of this unique place, drenched in history at the very heart of Christendom. Experience the feeling of taking a step back into a bygone age, leaving behind you the chaotic city and enjoying your private haven, surrounded by every comfort, where everything has been carefully designed to welcome you, and to make you immediately feel at home.
