(Newser) – For all of you who have joked about living in a closet ... well, you ain't seen nothing yet. A Rome "compact bedsit" that's being described as the world's smallest apartment has hit the market. Asking price for the 55-square-feet of heaven: $68,000. One report called the former porter's closet "little bigger than a wigwam"—it is large enough to feature a shower, toilet, and sink (no kitchen), but you'll have to climb a ladder to reach the sleeping platform, which can just barely hold a twin bed.

The eventual buyer won't have room to entertain them, but he will have impressive neighbors: It's close to Palazzo Grazioli, the mansion rented by Silvio Berlusconi. Click here to see a photo of the bitty place in the Telegraph.
