Romantic House in Rome:the balcony overlooking the church of Sugar

Rome, Rione Colonna

Romeo & Juliet, Rome

Rome, Colonna neighbourhood. A sad love story between two teenagers: Teresa Bennicelli and Pio Pratesi. The girl was forced by her relatives to leave the boyfriend and committed suicide. As a result, the heartbroken boy took vows. Coincidentally he celebrated his first Mass right on her beloved’s grave, inside St. Mary Magdalene Church, known among Romans as The Church of Sugar.

A name that, besides this romance, comes from the lively rococo façade, close to a cake decoration.

It seems very romantic to go out on the balcony of this beautiful Roman house and throw our arms around the lover’s neck wishing… not to end up like them.

The neighbourhood welcomes visitors offering an unforgettable stay

The house, for its part, is a dreamy place even without playing as Romeo and Juliet. The original floors and coffered ceilings immediately embrace visitors, offering a warm and antique atmosphere.

The West wind stirs the curtains and let light seep in through the large windows. The wooden furniture shines in thousands of reflections. Box spring beds and travertine bathrooms give a feeling of quietness. The neighbourhood welcomes visitors offering an unforgettable stay.
