Great, central location but being right outside the old Roman walls, the value is better than inside the walls.

This was our second visit to the Flaminio apartment, and we loved it even more than our first, if possible. Before it was just the two of us; this trip included our daughter and two teenaged granddaughters--and the apartment felt comfortably at home for all of us, and large enough that we never felt crowded. We especially love the location -- it's so close to wonderful shopping (on both sides of the river) or just evening "strolling"; there are a lot of good restaurants on the little streets off the piazza del popolo; and you can easily walk to most places within the city. The apt's owner is a charming man (he no longer lives across the hall, but is just as responsive if you need something), and the doorman is also helpful. We used Pat Bryne's recommended driver, Stefano, to and from the airport -- he was reasonable, reliable, and so easy to deal with. But our biggest treat was a private 3-hour tour of ancient Rome we booked with Alan Epstein, whose name we also found in Pat's information booklet. Alan is a charmer who clearly loves his adopted city, and his tour chatter was as entertaining as his book (When in Rome). And to end our tour, he took the time to walk with us to one of his favorite restaurants in the Jewish quarter,Dal Pompiere, where we took his recommendations and had superb pasta limone and fried carciofi (artichokes) -- liked it so much we went back there for dinner. Other favorite restaurants are Al 59 Ristorante Da Guiseppe, near the Piazza del Popolo; Checco er Carettiere in Trastevere (a wonderful family atmosphere,terrific food, and a great place for Sunday lunch); and Al Moro, on a small side street near the Trevi, where we had a memorable lunch. (Also, the fresh-ground coffee at Castroni's near the apt is delicious.) We would also recommend My Vatican Tour for really good tours of the Vatican Museum -- small groups, well-paced, with knowledgeable and enthusiastic young American guides (ours had been an art history major). Pat Byrne is excellent to deal with, and quick to respond to all our questions. So many wonderful memories -- we will definitely be back, and we will definitely stay nowhere but in one of Pat's rental apartments.

Spacious, clean and welcoming sanctuary

hey, I LOVED this penthouse. Stayed for a week with a girlfriend while researching a novel. From our greeting and orientation with the owner on arrival (who lives only a few blocks away) to the balcony for late day prosecco to the fact it was a retreat from the noise and hectic crowds of the old city--yet just outside the gates at the piazza del popolo, with everything walking distance (well all of old rome is walkable if you are wearning the right shoes! and are in shape).The suite was clean, bright, cheerful and welcoming--a basket of food goodies left for us in the kitchen made our stay even better. We also appreciated that the owner, was a phone call and a block or two away if we needed him--and we didn't but it was reassuring to have the option.A lot of TLC has gone into this suite--and we could not have been more comfortable and at home if we were home. Pat Byrne is such a great liason--thanks Pat! Lori

One of the best positioned apartments in the building. Up on the top floor, with a lovely wide wrap round balcony. For a family the apartment is a good plan as the children's bedroom was off the living space and set apart from the main bedroom. Wonderful having a washing machine and separate dryer (in good condition and good working order ) and having it out on the balcony was not a problem, made it very quiet. The building super was always very helpful and spoke perfect english. The area around the apartment is fine. Little supermarket just around the corner. Within walking distance to all the ancient parts of the city, although we used taxis a lot from the Piazza del Popolo as one of our children can't walk long distances. Walking up through the Borghese Gardens is the BEST and has delightful views of Rome.

Location
The apartment is located five minutes north of the Piazza del Popolo. The neighborhood was surprising quiet considering its proximity to the sites, e.g.- Pizza del Popolo and Spanish Steps.

Nearby Amenities
There was a grocery around the corner that was great for picking up the basics. There are a few coffee shops and a gourmet food store all within the vicinity.

The House/Apartment
The building itself is modern with marble lobby and a doorman. The apartment was tastefully furnished with everything one might need. A point to note, the apartment was impeccably clean. I could eat off the floors! The owner was very friendly and more than accommodating. He helped me figure out my Italian cellphone and booked a taxi for us to go to the airport. The apartment is located on the top floor so we heard no noise, which is a rarity in Rome!

Garden
There's a nice wraparound terrace with a table and benches. It was a great feature of the apartment that was utilized whenever we were there!

Furnishings - Cleanliness - Living Areas
The furniture was in great shape. Everything was spotless. The apartment is a nice size. We were a group of three and it never felt cramped. There are doors that open on to the terrace, which makes the apartment nice and airy. On the days where it was really hot, it was nice to be able to use the air conditioner. There were air conditioners in every room except the kitchen.

Bedrooms - Bathrooms
The master bedroom was a nice size with a gorgeous marble bathroom attached. The smaller bedroom really is tiny, but I didn't mind because I was only using it to sleep.

Kitchen
I cooked a few nice and authentic Roman meals in the kitchen. It is very well equipped with everything from cutting boards to a dishwasher. I love to cook and was very happy to cook in that kitchen!

Problems or Bonuses
A land-line phone!

Agency and Representatives (and price)
Pat from Italy Perfect (aka Excellent Europe) was great to work with. Everything went smoothly from the payments to arrival information. It was a genuine relief to work with Pat and to feel confident that everything would be handled efficiently. I used another agency on an earlier trip to Rome and was thoroughly disappointed. You can check out my review Vicolo Savelli to see the difference.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
Absolutely! In fact I am referring my wedding guests to Italy Perfect for my upcoming wedding in Ro

It was nice having the balcony to relax on Apr 2008

We had a great trip and our girls just loved Rome. The morning that we had to switch apts, we had an audience with the Pope scheduled. The man that helps you came over and picked up our bags and moved us over to the other apt. so that we could make the audience. We were so grateful to him and really appreciated his going out of his way to accomodate us. The Flaminio apt was great. It was nice having the balcony to relax on when we returned after a day of walking and site seeing. It was convenient to the Piazza Popollo so if we needed a cab, we could get one easliy. The only thing with the apt that was a drawback was the shower in the master bath. [Low water pressure is a city-wide problem] But we made do. We would definitely use your services again and have passed your name on to friends and family that are going over to Europe.

What a wonderful apartment we had in Rome at Il Flaminio. The apartment was spacious, light, and bright, and very comfortable – even for my husband, who is 6 feet four. Even though it was very early March, we were able to eat breakfast out on the terrace a couple of mornings.The location is really great. I thought it might be a little far from the city center, when I looked at the map, but I was entirely wrong. It was just steps from the Piazza del Popolo, an historic piazza but without the throngs of tourists and tacky tourist stands you find on some of the other famous piazzas. Important churches are there, streets fanning out to the most important attractions, many excellent restaurants, and a taxi stand. We found the little supermarket around the corner perfectly adequate and friendly (You’ll find the fresh bread at the butcher’s counter, by the way).The Villa Borghese is next door, where you can find our favorite museum -- the lovely Gallerie Borghese, located on the other side of the park. Because we were there on the first Sunday in March, we were able to walk right in; however, by Friday, all the timed entrances were booked. We were also able to walk right in to the Vatican Museum.We contacted Stefano and he picked us up at the airport, returned us there, and also took us out for a day in Tivoli – again, a rainy day, but still lovely. I would absolutely recommend getting him to drive you there; don’t even think about doing it yourself and public transportation, although cheap, would have taken up a lot of time and energy. The Ville d’Este was enchanting – a rainy day and not that many visitors – we could just wander at will. And we had the best lunch of the week at the lovely little restaurant at the Hotel Adriana – across from the Hadrian’s Villa. The décor was all white and cream, with rose petals on the table cloths – a smiling young waiter with little English but wonderful suggestions for lunch, the house white wine, and sinful dessert.We also found a number of good restaurants near the apartment, especially off of the Via Ripetta, on your right as you cross the Piazza del Popolo. One of the very best was just off the Via Ripetta, the very first right after you leave the Piazza – the Osteria St. Ana – down about two blocks -- Via del Penna 68. Don’t be put off by the entrance; you have to go down some steps and then the restaurant is in the back – wonderful food, wonderful ambiance (warm, family Italian rather th

Our stay in Rome was fabulous. The Flaminio apartment was so comfortable. Your greeter was so thorough in showing us the apartment. One day he called to make sure that we were ok. We cooked practically every night. The bottles of wine that we consumed….The neighborhood was wonderful. We lived in Castroni’s; too many wonderful food items to choose. Renting an apartment immediately puts you in a native mode. Some of the neighbors even spoke to us. The concierge was charming. Stefano was very punctual in picking us up and taking us back to the airport. Our walking tours were great. We used all forms of transportation.Unfortunately, the exchange rate was terrible at the cambios, so we used the bank that was near the apartment. Their rates were very good. It really helped.When Ted and I return to Italy (Florence and Venice), we will use your company again. Thank you (Grazie).

Let me say this up front....the entire trip was one of the best we've taken. he owner of Il Flaminio was very cordial and gave us great advice on where to eat, things to see, etc. He made us very comfortable. The apartment was extremely comfortable and spacious. It's very nice to have a lot of the conveniences of home such as well equipped kitchen and laundry facilities. For city living it was very quiet and we enjoyed waking in the morning to a fresh breeze blowing through the floor to ceiling doors and windows. Pretty much every evening we'd sit on one of balconies surrounding the apartment and have a glass of wine. Italy produces some really great red wines for the enthusiast. I would highly recommend this accomodation.
It is very conveniently located within walking distance to virtually everything in the historic part of Rome. We could walk to the coliseum, Vatican, Piazza Novella, Spanish Steps, Forum, you name it, within 30 minutes. I think we enjoyed strolling the back streets and bumping into the hidden piazzas throughout Rome most. The best way to see Rome is to get a bit lost, but we found that very difficult to do. It's a very easy city to get around in. We felt extremely safe anytime of day or night and since most of the vehicular traffic has been banned from central Rome it is very pedestrian oriented, quiet, and clean. We have travelled to about a dozen European countries and had virtually no problems at all in Italy and I can't think of any drawbacks regarding our Rome or Italian vacation. The local populace is very accepting of Americans, surprisingly. T

Again, the location of the apartment couldn't have been better located in terms of convenience to sites and being in a quiet location. Tips for future guests? Book an escorted tour of the Vatican before arrival in Rome. The wait in the queus are hours and I don't think I'd waste the time if I didn't have a prearranged tour. Secondly, don't eat in tratorias, restaurants, etc that are located directly in the main piazzas. They are there mainly for the tourist industry and therefore a little on the pricey side. It's best to venture off the piazzas down one of the many smaller streets for food and libations.
One I would recommend is Rist. Tritone on Via Dei Maroniti. The service and food quality was extraordinary and the cost was very reasonable. Most quality establishments cost for 4 people ran around $160 for a 4 course meal with wine which we found to be about average. Therefore, be p
