|Minimum Stay||1 - 7 nights|
IF YOU WANT THE BEST COME TO ANTICAMONTI! Stunning 3 suites: La Piazzetta and Il Vicolo in Colosseum area, T-Loft in Trastevere area.
Top internet wi-fi and air-conditioning in each apartment, fully equipped kitchen, big shower. Open the door and enjoy the ivy-covered trattorias, street performers, scruffy poets, bearded skateboarders, and exuberant merry-makers flood countless clubs, bars, and piazzas in fits of reckless abandon and indiscreet enthusiasm.
I love meeting people and being helpful. Luckily this is my job!
Fabio Fichi purchased this apartment in 2011
Nice small residential street with a handy grocery and plenty of restaurants. Most all major attractions were an easy walk. Owner was helpful.
This place was great! Upgraded apartment with a great mattress, great air conditioning and good wifi. Fabio met us outside the apartment, gave us tips on local restaurants and activities around his place (great suggestions with reasonable prices...including the best coffee and Pasteries we found for 4 euro for two people each morning right outside of our place). Fabio provided us with a google drive link that had multiple links for various tourism around Rome, eating options, rental car info etc. His is very organized and responds quickly! He made our stay hassle free and we had a great short stay in Rome!
We stayed with Fabio from 9/29/16 to 10/3/16 at his property located near the Colosseum. He arranged for a driver from the airport which made it very convenient to get to the property. He met us at the property and showed us around the flat AND the neighborhood, making recommendations for places to eat as we went. We enjoyed a coffee and some conversation with him before we went back and got settled into the flat. We had an amazing time in Rome! We walked everywhere and stumbled upon some great treasures as we made our way through the city. We had hoped to hear from Fabio again (he said that he would contact us with some links to some places to see/eat) but never heard from him - even when we tried to contact him about where to leave our keys when we left. This was the only disappointing part of our trip there. Rome was a wonderful city and again, the flat was perfect, clean and in a great location.
Fabio was very helpful with both restaurant and activity recommendations. Our train was 40 minutes late arriving in Rome and Fabio was there within a minute of us arriving at the apartment. He was very gracious when we emailed him to let him know our train was running behind schedule. The apartment was historic, yet modern. Loved our stay in Rome.
Fabio was right on time to greet us at the apartment. The place was very clean and it had everything we needed, including WiFi & A/C. The location is a 5 minute walk to the Colosseum and train station with several great restaurants nearby. Fabio was great! He speaks perfect English & he took the time to show us where to eat, how to catch a train and walked us around the area so we knew where we were going. I'd definitely stay there again if we return to Rome!
My husband and I spent four nights in Suite La Piazzetta. Our host was always prompt when responding to us during the booking process and the days leading up to our arrival. Fabio met us at the apartment. He knew we were arriving by train and provided us with very clear instructions on how to reach the apartment. At the apartment he answered all our questions and gave us some tips on the local area. We took him up on his suggestion for a local pizza place. It was terrific! The apartment is clean and well cared for. It was the perfect size for the two of us. We had a couple of tourist-related questions during our stay and Fabio was able to help us quickly and promptly. We decided to use a car service to get to the airport at the end of our stay and Fabio helped us with the booking. The driver was prompt and provided great service. The apartment is located close to the colosseum, but is tucked in a small neighborhood with local restaurants, bars, grocery stores and coffee shops. It is also close enough to walk to some of the other sites in rome (20 mins) such as the Trevi Fountain. The apartment is in a building with both stairs and an elevator. It was in a quiet building. We felt safe staying in this apartment. We would visit again!
The quarter is the oldest one of Rome: in the ancien times the name was SVBVRA (you have to read 'V' like 'U'), it was a place with a lot of brothels... Nerone used to go there in disguise to test plebeian mood, and it is Caesar's birthplace also.
Today is a little bit different, Monti is a very cool quarter!
This is the article published in TheGuardian (http://m.guardian.co.uk/travel/2012/mar/08/rome-monti-neighbourhood-city-guide):
'The full Monti: Rome's cool quarter. A stone's throw from Rome's Colosseum, you'll find the up-and-coming neighbourhood of Monti, buzzing with cool bars, fashion shops and traditional restaurants, loved by a loyal local crowd.
The Colosseum may be one of Rome's main tourist attractions, but wander up the slight incline away from the famous amphitheatre and you'll find endless gems of architecture, craft, fashion and restaurants tucked away in narrow streets and quiet corners. Formerly the city's seedy underbelly – where prostitutes and outlaws took refuge until as recently as the 1940s – Monti is now an enclave for the city's young, creative flock, and has the new upstarts to prove it. Strolling the cobblestone streets, you're likely to hear the hum of a designer's sewing machine or the thud of a hammer in a jeweller's shop.
The neighbourhood, named after one of Rome's seven famous hills, marries modernity with historical charm – from the fresh new ventures rubbing up against centuries of crumbling craftsmanship to the dapper signore ordering his cafe next to a bedraggled hipster.
Smaller and less touristy than the nightlife hub of Trastevere, it retains a strong community vibe...'
