Margutta Glamour Studios at Via Margutta
The artists’ street – it’s like nowhere else in Rome. Effortlessly elegant and serene, this cobbled, ivy-draped lane feels like a village despite its glamorous artistic and cinematic history. It’s a friendly, local haunt, with families who have have lived here for generations, yet just around the corner are the Spanish Steps, Piazza del Popolo, and all the designer brands you could desire, like Prada, Gucci, Bulgari, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, Armani, Chanel, and many others.
In 1858, Francesco Patrizi Montoro built a beautiful Palazzo housing artists’ studios on Via Margutta. It’s still owned and lived in by his descendants, so there’s a sense of family history here. The owner of Margutta Glamour Studios, his great-grand daughter, is an interior designer, who has created four stunning apartments occupying the former studios and part of the palazzo.
Picasso and Stravinsky once worked in Via Margutta’s studios, and film director Federico Fellini lived here. In the movie, Roman Holiday with the iconic Audrey Hepburn, the character played by Gregory Peck also lived on Via Margutta. The street was a centre for film stars in the 1950s and 60s at the height of the Dolce Vita era and there’s still an important dubbing studio here today, as well as art galleries, antique shops, art restorers, and a marble engraver.

“Thank you for such an enjoyable stay in Rome. We cannot wait to return! Perfect, perfect, perfect it was just what we needed!” (Margutta Luxury Loft)
“Thank you for a wonderful stay. The loft — with its large windows, the wonderful view onto the quiet courtyard, the comfortable bedroom, the simple but tasteful decoration — was beyond our expectations” (Visconti Bright Apartment)
“The apartment has a wonderful location. This is the street where Audrey Hepburn spent the night in Gregory Peck’s attic in the famous film “Roman Holiday”. It is situated in the heart of Rome, in a very quiet respectable street. In the evening and at night you can not hear the bustling city. The apartment is very elegantly furnished with elements of oriental style. The apartment is very warm and comfortable.”(Charming Apartment)
