We loved our stay in this historic third floor apartment! My husband, our eighteen yr. old granddaughter and I arrived in Rome, ready for some serious sightseeing. The location was perfect for easy access to the Pantheon, the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain, the Jewish Quarter, the Spanish Steps, and many other areas to explore. We walked everywhere! The two bedrooms had windows overlooking the narrow cobblestone streets and we found ourselves in the middle of the hustle and bustle of daily Roman life. However when we opened the door and entered from the street into the courtyard, we were in a quiet peaceful setting. The ambiance of the courtyard and the surrounding apartments made us feel like locals instead of visitors. The ground level of our apartment building was home to a gelateria, the bakery was only two doors away, and two wonderful cafes & bars were across the narrow street from us. This vibrant city kept us busy all day, yet at night we slept peacefully in our quiet apartment. Upon our arrival, Francesca welcomed us with a bottle of wine and lots of helpful information. She had arranged round-trip transportation from the airport to our apartment and this was greatly appreciated. My husband did not want to rent a car and drive in Rome and our super location with nearby bus transportation available was perfect. The three of us spent time at nearby Piazza Navona (one of the most beautiful in Rome) every day, relaxing at some of the sidewalk cafes, just soaking in the ambiance and listening to music. The fact that the World's Cup for soccer was going on during our visit was exciting and it was fun to watch the Italian fans. The apartment was clean and the sleeping accommodation along with two bathrooms and kitchen filled all our needs. During our four-night stay here, breakfast at the bakery next door became a daily habit. Francesca called it the best bakery in Rome and we agree. Thanks for all your help Francesca! We would recommend this apartment for anyone wanting a unique Roman experience right in the middle of everything.
