Via Angelo Brunetti 2 is a two bedroom, one bathroom home in Popolo-Quirinale. It combines older features, such as the dark beamed ceiling over the sitting room, with modern furniture in muted tones. The living area is overlooked by tall windows hung with sheer drapes. There’s a dining area seating six and also a small breakfast table in the smart white kitchen. The peaceful Villa Borghese gardens are nearby, landscaped in 19th-century style and home to an arthouse cinema, a little lake full of basking turtles and, on the northern edge, the National Gallery of Modern Art. Flaminio Metro station is around 5 minutes’ walk.
