Luxury three-bedroom penthouse

What’s Italian for ‘blow-out’? Okay, not everyone will have the slightly eye-watering budget for this super-opulent, super-luxe penthouse. But those who do will be in for a real treat. It has an intoxicating mixture of classic Italianate grandeur and contemporary cool – check out that wonderfully coved dining room in contrast to the all the mod cons of the kitchen. The terrace outside is expansive and offers sweeping views of the city. If you finances can take the hit, then make sure you book this one.
