Don't get us wrong, we love this Rome apartment's contemporary interior with its bold artwork and the vast collection of books, but this address is all about the balcony. Covered with mosaic tiling and climbing plants, it's a pretty enough spot in and of itself. However, where it really shines is with the view out over the Piazza del Popolo with its Egyptian obelisk in the centre and majestic fountains on either side. Overlooking the whole scene are the towering trees from the Villa Borghese — a huge park that can be reached in five minutes from your front door. It's the sort of picturesque vantage point that people search the city for, but you'll have it all to yourself. We can imagine nothing better than espresso-sipping and people-watching as the city comes to life in the morning. If you need a change of scenery, however, you can walk to the banks of the River Tiber in under five minutes or stroll over to see the Trevi Fountain in under twenty.
