The location could not be beat! We had a hard time finding our building at first because the person was about 15 minutes late to let us in but besides that, everything was perfect!

A wonderful base for our 4 day trip to Rome

  • 5 of 5

A charming apartment in the most wonderful location. In a very old building, spacious and spotlessly clean. Picture book view from the sitting-room window (even better in real life). Nice welcome from the laid back Rafaelle at check in. Very comfortable bed. Quite a climb on stairs up to the third floor and noisy and often slow plumbing were the only minor drawbacks.

Staying in our own home from home in Trastevere added greatly to our Rome experience. Great restaurants and bars.

Highly recommend this apartment.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Very nice apartment. Perfect location. Noise from the square was not as bad as feared and bedroom is facing the court yard. Would have given 5 stars had we had 2 keys.

We are really really satisfied that we stayed in this apartment. The apartment was homey, clean and very well located. Beautiful view from the windows on the charming Piazza S.Maria in Trastevere. The host was very helpful. It was like we expected, we will definitely recommend this place to our friends!

Convenient and overlooks one of Rome's oldest churches.

  • 4 of 5

A very nice, 3rd floor apartment overlooking a large piazza fronting one of Rome's oldest churches in a delightful neighbourhood and close to the Tiber River.

The apartment was clean and very comfortable though it could do with more lighting in main room and a microwave oven for more convenient eating-in. The interesting activities and street theatre in the square and the church bells were no problem due to modern glazing and the bedroom being at the back. The tram and bus into central Rome and Termini are close by, though most of the attractions are within easy walking distance. Al Fresco dining opportunities abound in the many cafes and restaurants in surrounding squares and there is a friendly crepe and ice-cream shop next to the front door. Booking and check in were flawless (though it is a pity that the makings for our first cup of coffee were not provided).

The locations is excellent, we could walk everywhere. A little bit of noise at night but we were right in the Piazza San Maria in Tratevere square, one of the most characteristic of the area. The apartment was good size, perfect for a family of 4, kitchenette small but adequate for breakfast. Very clean and well kept.

Car: not necessary

The heart of the area is Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, nestled in the beautiful accommodation seventeenth century. The fountain at the center, the octagonal basin, is the work of Carlo Fontana.

Santa Maria in Trastevere was the first church in Rome to be dedicated to the Madonna, perhaps the first open for worship, certainly one of the oldest in the city.

It was founded by Pope Callistus I on Taberna Meritoria, exploiting the legend according to which, in 38. C., miraculously, the oil gushed in that place and came to the Tiber, announcing the coming birth of Jesus (today it would be a miracle indeed valuable, because, probably, it was oil!). The church was born on the place where the oil gushed, still listed in one of the steps of the chancel.

To give shape to Basilica was Pope Julius I in the fourth century, in the ninth century Pope Gregory IV, under the looming danger of the Saracens arrived on the Tyrrhenian coast, extended upheld because the bodies of saints rescued from the catacombs.

The Basilica was rebuilt in the twelfth century by Pope Innocent II reusing materials from the Baths of Caracalla. New changes affected the church between 1500 and 1700 and one of these interventions Carlo Fontana, who created the porch and changed the facade. Not much remains of the most ancient phases: a strip of the floor of the third century and the bell tower of which peeps un'edicoletta in 1600 depicting the Madonna and Child made of mosaic.

Three times during the Holy Years, Santa Maria in Trastevere replaced the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls: twice due to the epidemics that broke out in the Roman countryside and the last time in 1825, after a fire had almost completely destroyed St. Paul.

In the backdrop of the square, on the right side of the Basilica joins the House of the Canons, and on the left is the Palace of San Callisto: he was once a Benedictine monastery attached to the church, can be seen today in the seventeenth century facade restored in 1800 and in 1900 . On the same side is the palace of the Knights (or Leopardi), with the characteristic ashlar and the Baroque portal.

The square, as the entire neighborhood has become a point of reference for nightlife of the Romans, tourists and a meeting place regardless of age or nationality. Trastevere offers endless entertainment possibilities: from the opportunity, in the summer, to 'camp out' under the stars with a cool drink and a guitar, the idea of ??a dinner in a gourmet restaurant or in a historic pizzeria, the shopping opportunities in small shops delicious!
