About The Owner

Natalia worked as a flight attendant (cabin crew) for Alitalia Airlines from 1970 to 1995. Prior to her work at Alitalia, she lived for more than a year in London, studying and working in a tourist agency. She speaks excellent English, understands and speaks Spanish and can 'get by' in French. Her husband Walter worked as well as pilot in Alitalia for more than 30 years.

The twenty-five years she spent traveling from one country to another gave her an opportunity to learn about the ways and customs of many countries and enhanced her natural predisposition for interpersonal relationships; she always succeeds in establishing an immediate, friendly relationship with her guests.

Since 1995, she has attended the 'Academy of Decorative Arts', discovering a hidden talent for painting and decorating that she never imagined before. She now puts this talent to use personally decorating her apartments. In fact, the tiles in the kitchens and the tabletops in the dining areas of her apartments are all hand painted as well as the tromp l'oeil paintings, which gives each apartment a unique touch.

In the last 4 years she has attended courses of the History of Roman Art, which allowed her to get to know the city on a new level. She provides her guests with useful information on Rome and its monuments and archaeological sites.

Upon your arrival Natalia will make available, in addition to her knowledge and experience, a large number of tourist guides, brochures and maps of Rome so that you will immediately have Rome, as they say, 'in your hands.'

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2000

Why The Owner chose Rome

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! The apartment is located next to the Roman Forum. The oldest and most important structures of the ancient city are located in the forum, including its ancient former royal residency the Regia and the surrounding complex of the Vestal virgins. The Old Republic had its formal Comitium there where the senate, as well as Republican government began. The forum served as a city square and central hub where the people of Rome gathered for justice, and faith. The forum was also the economic hub of the city and considered to be the center of the Republic and Empire.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You could not ask for a better location. About a 4 block walk to the Coliseum, the underground was practically at our door step. The apartment was excellently furnished - everything you would need. Great shower, great bed, etc. We especially appreciated the time Walter spent getting us oriented and suggesting places to visit. A great place, would definitely stay again.

Cozy apartment near Coliseum

  • 5 of 5

This cozy apartment had all the amenities needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable! This apartment was a pleasant place to return to after a day of sight-seeing. This apartment is within walking distance of the Coliseum and other historic Roma sites. We would stay here again.

Great Place and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay in Rome. First of all, Walter had someone meet us at the airport and took us directly to the apartment where Walter was there to greet us. He not only shared with us the apartment and how everything worked, he also sat down with us and gave us excellent advise on what to see when in Rome. We thought we already knew what we wanted to see, but with Walter's advise we saw things we would have missed otherwise. He also messaged me about mid week to see if everything was ok. Just this personal attention was reason to say here.

The apartment is small but met all our needs. The kitchen was well stocked with any necessary items if a person wanted to cook (we didn't). The location was central to some of the major historical sites in Rome. The walk to the Colosseum was about 10 minutes at the most. The Metro was just outside the apartment.

If we decide to come back to Rome, I would not look for another place. I would stay at this location.

A real gem

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is just as pictured and perfect for two. The area, Monti, is fabulous. Wonderful restaurants and charming area. We are 70+ and we were able to walk to many of the important churches and sites. The metro, Cavour, is literally half a block away. Walter arranged our pickup from the cruise port and to the airport. He met us at the apartment and gave us many suggestions. A perfect host. On Friday and Saturday there is an "Italian made" market directly across the street. They have jewelry, accessories and clothing. Unique and handmade items. I bought several items and even more pleased since I am home. Highly recommended for a short or long stay for a couple.

Foody heaven, artisan shops, live like a Roman close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Apartment and hosts all wonderful and as described. Apartment larger than we expected. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATON. The Monti is alive with Romans coming for drinks, dining, and shopping in antique shops, mico-mosaic shops, vintage clothes, jewlery handmade to high end, perfumeries, cheese shops, hand made pasta shops, wine. In evening walk Via dell Angeletto, Via Boschetto, Via Panisperna look in the shops most are open until 7pm. See studio artists at work on paintings and mosaics, listen to the university piano school. Dine at La Mucca brichina on Via Urbana if you want to familiarize yourself with the Roman menu, the food is alright, but it is a tourist destination good for first time travelers to Italy. La Taverna on Via Boshetto, is the next step up still touristy but food is better, Lemoncello and biscotti are complementary at the end of every meal. Il Cavo bar is good, it is at the end of Leonina, see the Church and find the fountain, this restaurant is in front of the fountain. Soup of faro, black beans and lentils with a bit of smoked pork. Artichoke and penne amatrichiana. Cheesecake ricotta in pastry coffee. Wine montichino rosso, all excellent. Restaurant Ali tre scalini on Via Presciparia has a handwritten on a chalk board menu and a good wine list. Swordfish lasagne with artichoke ala Romano was super. The restaurants listed above are all a five minute walk to the apartment. In Ghetto, Cinque Scole 30, linguini with ricotta parmesan and salt and black pepper. Artichoke ala Romano (poached in olive oil) and ala Guidia triple deep fried in olive oil. The fridge in the apartment allowed us to over order and take it home for lunch the next day. Shop at SuperElite super market for basic needs. Eggs in Europe are not refrigerated and are perfectly safe.

Don't over pack! The washing machine in the apartment means you don't need to bring much. No dryers in Italy. Hang on the heated towel dryer in bathroom in winter or on drying rack provided.

How to get where? Metro is good, safe but check if you need to change at the termini as this can mean lots of escallators and steps to get to the other line. 1.50 E per ticket gets you around everywhere you need to go. 6 to 10 E gets you a taxi (from the Hotel Pallitino located a few steps from the apartment) takes you anywhere in the city. Took Metro and train to Ostia Antica very easy and pleasant trip. To Pompeii for a day trip, took excellent CityWonders tour.
