If the mention of a “16th-century Italian palazzo” calls to mind a grand, dark space crammed with ornate furniture and serious artwork, think again.

The Costaguti Experience offers travelers a chance to stay in an expertly renovated and decorated apartment in the Palazzo Costaguti, a historic palace in Rome originally built for noble prelate monsignor Costanzo Patrizi, that’s anything but stuffy.

That’s because the holiday home combines frescoes by Baroque masters Cavalier d’Arpino (“Arming Aeneas”) and Taddeo and Federico Zuccari (“The Allegory of the Months and Virtues”), coffered ceilings, and other period architectural details with a selection of design-forward furniture, decor, and art to create a bright, dynamic space for sophisticated modern living.

Occupying the palazzo’s piano nobile, the apartment features a main floor and mezzanine comprising five bedrooms to accommodate up to 14 guests, a billiards room, private sauna, the main living room, and six bathrooms—all overlooking the Piazza Mattei and its Turtle Fountain.
