This central Rome neighborhood is known for its wide boulevards, fine architecture and great shopping. The streets are wide enough for trees, vehicles, trolleys and pedestrians and the scale of the architecture reminds of us Paris but with an Italian flair, less groomed, more street markets.
This is the best neighborhood in Rome for real shopping. Along Via Cola di Rienzo there are fashion stores for shoes, leather and clothing that offer the latest fashions without designer prices. Good grocery shopping and gourmet food, too. And, lots of street vendors that are a dream for our teenage fashion mavens, Italian styles, budget prices.
Very close to the Vatican Museums, walking distance to Castel Sant'Angelo and St. Peter's. Piazza del Popolo is a 15 minute walk. Use the subway from the Ottaviano stop to go everywhere else, 2 stops, 4 minutes to the Spanish Steps. The area is also really well served by buses and a tram.
This fine building from 1830 is handsome inside and out. It is on a corner of a half-moon piazza with a park at the center. The trees are high and provide a nice view from the apartment windows.
The apartment was renovated completely in 2009 and laid out with modern living in mind. The entry has a beautiful antique red table that shows off the antique tortoise-shell mirror above it. Straight ahead is the living room and to the right a long hallway reaches the far end of the apartment.
The living room overlooks the piazza with a high window. Clean, white modern furniture highlights Italian taste. The lounge chairs, both signed, are wonderfully comfortable. Known for their modern design in the 1950s, you have to remember that the function preceded design. A long hutch is of equally modern, clean and pleasing design. Its twin is in the dining room. The large, flat-screen television has satellite reception for some English language programs.
Frosted glass sliders separate the living and dining rooms. The modern, minimal design theme continues here with a glass-topped table that has expansion at both ends. Red leather chairs for six diners. Table will seat eight, bringing chairs from the kitchen.
A hallway connects the living and dining room with the kitchen that has a large (rather than under-counter) refrigerator, oven, gas stovetop, dishwasher, Nespresso machine as well as pots, pans and dishes.
The three bedrooms are the master bedroom that has an ensuite bathroom with enclosed shower. The tile work in all the bathrooms is modern and very pleasing. The master bedroom with red accents has a wall of closets and a small private balcony.
The 'blue' and 'green' bedroom each have two twin beds, plenty of closet space. Both have a view of the green piazza below.
There are two more bathrooms, one with jacuzzi tub with shower over and the other with enclosed shower.
One additional guest can be accommodated on a rollaway bed.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Five of us from the same parish in Fort Worth, Texas, traveled to Rome for 10 days. The apartment was very spacious, clean, comfortable, great location, easy walk to Vatican, taxi stand, grocery store, shopping. Fully stocked kitchen allowed us to have breakfast and dinner in the apartment and enjoy "together" time. Pat was wonderful to work with in the booking process. She was also most helpful when we tried learning to use the taxi system! Stanisleo greeted us and got us familiar with our surroundings. Beautiful view from our 6th floor. We left every morning for our day's adventure and returned in the evening feeling as though we were truly home! Loved the elevator - felt like we were living like the Romans!
