The unique charm of the Castello di Marco Simone

The restoration of the Castello di Marco Simone,” said Laura Biagiotti “was like some kind of madness that took over me and that I oversaw very gently. It was a decisive choice in my life, at the crossroads of 35 years – living and working in the countryside, personal relationships and professional commitments, a long-held passion and search for customs, the theatre of everyday life and fashion, all in a single vessel.”

Marco Simone is one of the sites in the Roman countryside whose past can be read immediately as if reading a book. This is why it is a location that we at Suite Palma also invite you to discover and visit to become a modern real tourist.
