|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
Savour a Roman interlude in a 16th century Historic Palazzo originally built by the aristocratic Mattei family 500 years ago, and recently carefully restored to its Baroque glory. It is in a perfect location at the end of Via Coronari, a quiet and chic street in the historic center near both the Piazza Navona and the wonderful Campo di Fiori, Rome's famed Fruit and Vegetable market in the day and open-air cocktail party by night. You will also find an easy walk to all the major attractions in the center including Castel St.Angelo, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, Trastevere, St. Peters, the Colisseum and more.
The apartment is a large studio with high vaulted ceilings, original and beautifully preserved Terracotta floors, and lovely moulded built-in cupboards, evocative of its aristocratic Renaissance heritage. There is a four-poster queen-sized bed, plus a single bed for a third person hidden within the built-in cupboards, a small corner kitchen, a bathroom with shower and bidet, wireless Internet, a Nespresso automatic espresso machine. It is elegantly furnished with antiques and fine fabrics, and luxury linens. It is perfect for a romantic interlude, a cultural city break, or a family visit to Rome for a couple with a child.

We have had a fantastic week in Rome - the apartment was great for us - felt very homey and location is perfect. The suggested restaurants and things to do was very helpful and gave us a good starting point.
There are so many things to see and do in Rome - we think we managed a good proportion of them.
We will definitely look at the website for other destinations.
My boyfriend and I stayed in this beautiful apartment for our 4 night stay in Rome. Paola and Susan made our stay so easy and comfortable. They set us up with a driver to and from the airport, restaurant recommendations, and more! The apartment is so quaint and beautiful and the perfect stay for a couple. It is romantic and charming and right in the heart of the city.
We are first time travelers and were nervous. The apartment became our nest! It is just as it looks. Clean, sweet & cozy. We enjoyed the neighborhood / location. We did a lot of sight seeing daily and still made time to discover the
the streets around us. It was endless. The sound of the birds took a bit to get use to, but It seems the norm being near the river. We enjoyed the lovely small kitchen and the meals we made there.
I must thank Susan for support through our stay and arranging our pick up for our departure.
I hope your enjoy this little jewel as much as we did.

We had a great time staying at Roma Romantica which is located very close to Piazza Navona and Via Dei Coronari which is an amazing street that has many unique antique stores. It was great being so close to so many amazing places. Coming home after a long day of travelling the city was great knowing that we were going to have a good night sleep on the comfortable bed. Overall, Roma Romatica was wonderful and in a location close to everything. There is a portable air conditioner in the apartment, however, we liked leaving the windows open to get a nice breeze. The nights can be loud, so if you are a light sleeper, I would recommend that you keep the windows closed and use the air conditioner. I would definitely go back to Roma Romantica!
My husband and I spent five days in this beautiful apartment which is perfectly located for seeing Rome as it should be seen - on foot.
The owner Susan was fabulous from the moment we booked to the moment we left. We were greeted on arrival and given a very good insight into what to see, where to eat and where all the local amenities were.
The apartment has been very cleverly designed and felt very spacious. It was almost a home from home (except without the stress). Its just perfect. The location is fantastic - just a short walk from the Pantheon and piazza navona - thus making us feel that we were enjoying the true Rome experience.
The holiday was highlighted by the amazing St Peter and St Pauls feast day fireworks which we could see from the apartment but even better four strides out of the house and we were right by the River watching them with the rest of Rome.
I would thoroughly recommend this apartment to any couple visiting Rome.
Thank you Susan and Adrian for everything you did to make our holiday so memorable.
We had a great time visiting Rome (June 2011) and this apartment was a major reason. This apartment is beautifully decorated, clean, spacious, and most importantly in a great location. This apartment met all our needs and it is even nicer than its description.
We walked to all great sites from this place and the few times my parents couldn't walk, we took buses from a nearby terminal. There are also many great stores and restaurants in the vicinity.
We also want to thank the owners and the rental agent for making us feel at home and making sure we are taken care of. They were always there if we had a question or needed something. They also had some great recommendation for restaurants and places to go.
We wholeheartedly recommend this apartment and would stay there again if we go back to Rome.
Enjoyed the wonderful location near Piazza Navona, Vatican and Castello. Convenient to shops, restaurants, the Tiber river, tourist sites. Warm hospitality, sense of history, beautiful apartment. Perfect situation for a week stay in Rome. Hosts were wonderful and very helpful.
The location in the heart of Rome is simply the best. Live a real Rome experience.You are a short stroll to the Campo di Fiori where you can buy some of the most beautiful produce you will ever see. You are walking distances to all the major sites, to great boutique shopping, great restaurants and intimate trattorias. Walk to Piazza Navona, the Vatican, the Pantheon, hip Trastevere, elegant Via Giulia, the Forum, the Coliseum, and much more. If you don't want to walk, bus stops are nearby, and frequent bus service will take you anywhere.
The apartment is 100 yards from the river Tiber, and directly opposite is the looming hulk of Emperor Hadrian's tomb, subsequently converted into the Castel Sant Angelo to which on more than one occasion the Popes fled along a secret passage from the Vatican to find protection within its massive walls.
Wander through the historic centre's softly-lit streets in the evening and buy a fresh sorbetto from the notable 'gelateria' in Via Coronari.
