We were met by Alberto at the apartment doorway which is on a cobbled small street which has a partial view of the Colosseum. The studio apartment is a hotel sized room looking across terra cotta rooftops to the impressive Vittorio Emanuele 2 monument. Alberto is a very kind gentleman and was extremely helpful and contactable during our stay. The apartment is very clean, bright, well furnished and we were very comfortable here. There are a large number of restaurants and bars close by. Our favourite coffee stop was at the Cavour end of the street where the waiters are very friendly and entertaining. The Colloseum area to me is not half as crowded and tourist saturated as the more central areas of Rome and suited us well. We were able to walk to most parts from here but we do enjoy travelling this way. Alberto kindly arranged a taxi for us when we departed and we would definitely stay here again when we return to this fantastic city. Many thanks for your hospitality Alberto.
