Rione Monti: The Rione Monti toghether with Trastevere it’s the most picturesque quarter of Rome. The surrounding of Via del Boschetto, Via dei Serpenti, Via panisperna and Via Baccina still remain with the same characteristics of a little village where everybody knows each other. This aspect is given by the little residences, artisan stores and the familiar charm and sympathy of the little shops and the small intimate streets. In this part of the quarter the intimacy reigns and makes rione unique. The Monti inhabitants still find themselves playing, chatting or simply relaxing in the piazzetta (little square) nearby the church Madonna dei Monti which is a real get together point for the monticiani (Monti’s inhabitants). In the end Monti is a quarter constantly active and an attraction for thousands of tourist with its main street, the Colosseum, the Imperial Fora, the noble palaces and t
My wife and I stayed in the apartment for 5 nights. The apartment is as advertised. It is clean and modern and we felt safe. We were able to walk to all the major sights except the Vatican (which is easy to get to via the Metro). The street is very lively at night, but you can't hear a thing from the bedroom since it is on the interior of the apartment. It is a great place to stay if you're looking to experience Rome. I would definitely stay there again.
The apartment is accurately shown in the photos here. My wife and I stayed for a week and found everything as promised. The apartment is on the second floor (ground floor being zero) with an updated kitchen and bath, good internet and satellite/cable TV, and excellent heating. Although Via Leonina has a lot of pedestrian traffic, the bedroom is in the rear of the apartment away from the street noise. The location is just a short walk from the Cavour metro station and there are many excellent and moderately priced restaurants in the area.
Before renting I was concerned that there didn't seem to be a lot of reviews for this apartment but my concern was unwarranted because the owners also rent via other sites. I found them here on VRBO and so this is where I am posting my review.
This is an amazing place to stay in Rome. Fantastic location so close to the Coliseum and so many amazing restaurants. The apartment is just perfect, open the windows to hear the sounds of Rome coming in, can't be beat. We had a slight hiccup at the start with our arrival time but other than that it was a wonderful stay and would highly recommend to anyone wanting to visit Rome!!
We stayed in this wonderful apartment during our 5 day stay in Rome over Spring Break. Our first time in Italy and our 3rd stop in our trip, after Venice and Florence. My husband, and my 2 pre-teen boys and I had a great time, thanks to Martina and Tancredi. Booking this place was very convenient because of the prompt responses and informative emails. We were able to email and text and communicate effectively during our stay- so that we knew we could reach the owners if needed.
We arrived during a rain shower- nothing too bad, but enough to need umbrellas. We were able to wait at the little Gelataria across the street for the few minutes that it took for the owners to meet us. Tancredi was gracious to assist us with our suitcases up the 2 flights of stairs. Both Martina and Tancredi were very informative and had plenty of brochures. they also had 2 umbrellas that we were able to use during our stay, in addition to our own.
The Metro station is literally 1 min from this place. It gets a little noisy even with the windows shut, in the front room for the boys who slept in the pull-out sofa bed- but they were fine- didnt bother them. The bedroom is wonderfully quiet, loved the bathroom, the shower, the kitchen and the location. I've recommeded it to my friends and would definitley stay here again. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
I stayed in the Via Leonina apartment from Jan 24, 2013 to March 13, 2013, and I could not have found a more perfect apartment. It is beautiful, spacious, comfortable, and as my title above says, it was truly my home for nearly seven weeks. The apartment has all the amenities that a visitor could want: a full-sized refrigerator, wifi that is easy to use and which worked perfectly the whole time I was there, a wonderful washer in the bathroom. As if the apartment itself weren't enough, the Monti rione is one of the most amazing and exciting in Rome. The apartment sits around the corner from La Piazza della Madonna dei Monti and is one of the most popular places for young and old to hang out throughout the day and evening. The apartment is also very convenient to the Metro and many bus lines along Via Cavour and Via Nazionale. As I have already mentioned to Martina and Tancredi, if this apartment is available when I return to Rome, I will certainly plan to stay here. Quest' appartamento era un sogno. Lo adoro e anche questo quartiere. Martina e Tancredi, grazie mille per tutto! Saluti!
I spent 10 nights in this property. It is exactly how it is shown in the pictures. You will find a spacious and clean place to stay in the heart of the historic center of Rome. It is a less than 10-minute walk to the Roman Forum and Palatine. The neighborhood is full of restaurants and bars, not to mention the gelaterias where you can indulge yourself into the gelato world. Great stay!
