Many years ago my oldest daughter married an Italian living in Rome. Since that time, my wife, Jean, and I have made an annual trip to Rome and Italy to visit her and her growing family. After some years and two growing grandchildren, it became obvious that we needed to have our own place when we came to visit. Hence, a search for a convenient and comfortable apartment for use during our visits. Luckily we found such a place in the same neighborhood where my daughter and family resided. Since that time, we have rented this apartment to tourists during the time that we are not occupying the premises. My daughter acts as our agent in Rome and is prepared to offer her services and knowledge of the city to renters if needed. We have traveled extensively throughout Italy and Europe and consider Rome to be our second home. We try to express our enthusiasm for the city and the country to our prospective renters in hopes that they too will we able to experience the incredible wealth of art, history and culture that the city offers.

John Mortarotti purchased this apartment in 1996

Besides wanting to find an apartment in the same neighborhood as my daughter's area of Rome, we wanted a place that was residential in nature, quiet, safe and if possible, family oriented. At the same time, we wanted it to be accessible to the center of Rome where one could easily explore the many wonders of the eternal city yet experience, first-hand, the Roman way of life. The apartment is a mere 20 minutes by public transportation from the very center of Rome. This transportation is very reliable, convenient and accessible. There are many amenities in close proximity to the apartment. Restaurants, Trattorias, bars, shops,street markets, supermarkets, banks, post office, department stores, pharmacies, etc, etc. that help one to enjoy Roman life to the fullest. Also, the apartment is located just one block from the new terminal servicing the city's direct rail line to and from Rome's International airport. This is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Rome and the residents are mainly upper middle-class in stature.

Roomy and comfortable apartment

  • Submitted: Aug 12, 2009
  • Stayed: Dec 2008
We have rented this apartment several times in the last few years. Our last visit was for 2 weeks in Dec. of 2008. The apt. is roomy, comfortable and pleasant. The views from the balconies allow you to view the river below and the city around you. We especially enjoyed shopping for fruit,veggies, meats, flowers, etc. at the nearby, daily street market. Two supermercatos( supermarkets) are also close by.
The bus system is regular and easily used to reach the center of Rome. The owner's daughter(a resident of the area) is extremely helpful. She will meet you at the train station, give you tips to enhance your stay, and answer all your questions regarding bella Roma. We have always enjoyed our visits to the area and apartment.

Owner's Response: Bill and Pam, along with several other couples and past tenants are among a group that have rented our apartment several times. We are always anxious to increase and upgrade our services and amenities to such renters since they are our best advertisement of the quality of our facilities and premises. Their satisfaction, comments and suggestions are the standards that we strive to achieve and promote in the presentation of the rental property.

Amazing Room with Decent Location

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 4, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
The apartment was amazing. Very large for two people and very reasonably priced. It was a little far from the city center but not far from public transportation. Marilee was very friendly and helpful. She even let us get into the apartment a little early on our first day. The free internet in the room was a huge help. The only reason I don't give it 5 starts are because of some minor complaints. The other residents in the building were a little noisy at times. The hot water wasn't terribly hot so be ready for a luke warm shower.

We loved the area the apartment was located in. Close to shops, restaurants and only 15 minutes to Rome centre. The unit was very well equipped, I loved that it had a bathtub. Marilee looked after us wonderfully, even picking us up from the station and walking us to the apartment. Thank you Marilee and thank you John for the experience

We were met at the train station and walked the several blocks to the apt. with Marilee who provided all the relevant info. The apt is in perfect condition and well represented by the available info. We had no problem accessing all of our itinerary from the public transportation available. Good local dining and shopping. Overall an excellent rental and one of the best we have stayed at.

Apartment is located in a quiet residential area just outside the center of Rome. The neighborhood contains banks, street markets, supermarkets, newsstands, boutiques, pharmacies, laundromats, post office, bars, restaurants,etc all within 1 or 2 blocks distance. There is a bicycle, jogging path that borders the river directly in front of the apartment and has children's playgrounds included. Transportation to the city center is very efficient and accessible by public bus or Metro just 20 minutes distance. One of the best preserved and extensive catacombs in Rome is just several blocks distant. There are many excellent restaurants, trattorias and Pizzerias in the neighborhood that serve authentic Roman cuisine at reasonable prices. For those wishing to prepare their own meals there are several street markets, supermarkets, fruit and vegetable stands, butchers and bakeries within 2 blocks from the apartment. The area, Monte Sacro, was, until after World War II, the seat of many Villa owned by wealthy Romans. In the 1950's it the city expanded greatly and much of Monte Sacro was developed for housing the growth in population. It's proximity to the city center has made it a very desirable residential neighborhood in Rome. Typical of most large cities, this type of neighborhood contains all the amenities that one could possibly want or need. The apartment is particularly well situated since the street on which it is located borders the Aniene river that flows into the Tiber as it slowly meanders through the northeast part of Rome.

The city has built a bicycle-jogging path along this river that extends several miles. along this path there are many parks benches, playgrounds and other amenities that afford opportunities for residents to be able to access outdoor activity in the center of a bustling city neighborhood.
