Overview

Rome Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Enjoy the charm of an authentic Rome apartment!

Located right in the very center of Rome, in a tranquil cobblestone alley of the historic Trastevere area, this newly renovated and refurbished apartment combines the classic Roman charm of exposed original beams with the comfort and style of modern furnishings. This is an ideal typical holiday home to experience a great stay in the eternal city!

The area surrounding the apartment: The luxury suite apartment is situated in the heart of Trastevere, the picturesque medieval area located on the west bank of the Tiber. Part of the historical centre of Rome, Trastevere is the perfect place to glimpse a bit of the old world while still enjoying the lifestyle of today's Romans. From the cobblestone streets to the overhanging laundry lines, senses are pleasantly awakened with every step you take in this bohemian neighborhood.

Vicolo della Torre, where is located the apartment, represents everything mentioned above. It is the most photographed alley of Trastevere and you will feel very proud to have been chosen so popular and central location.

Equidistant from the Coliseum and the Vatican, Trastevere is an ideal place to discover the secrets of Rome on foot. Saint Peter and the Vatican city are about twenty minutes away and upon crossing the Tiber you get to Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, the Roman Forum, and many other sights, in no time at all (15 to 30 minutes walks). If you want to take public transportation, the area is extremely well served by the electric buses of Rome.

A few blocks from the apartment, you can find the outdoor market of Piazza San Cosimato, where tented booths display a bountiful array of tantalizing fruits and vegetables, or the Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, the most popular gathering place in the area. In this square you will find the church Santa Maria in Trastevere, one of the oldest and most beautiful churches in Rome and very much worth a visit.

The area becomes very lively at night as it is full of trendy bars and dozens of quality restaurants and pizzerias, where you can taste great Italian food at reasonable prices.

If you are looking for a very special accommodation, with all the charm and soul of old Rome yet with all the comfort and convenience of modern amenities, then the Trilussa apartment will surely delight you. Trilussa is the name of a famous Roman poet.

The apartment:

This charming apartment is located on the ground floor of a typical house of 1800 and enjoys a private entrance in additional to the secluded location that makes it not so noisy in a lively neighborhoods. This will allow you to sleep at night, advantage that few holiday rentals can offer in Trastevere.

The house is a confortable little suite, very modern and all renovated, pecfect for a couple or 3 persons of the same family. There is a bed room with a king size bed and a living room with a sofa bed, very well equiped with Tv with a satelite to enjoy your programs all over the world, and wireless internet free and a Nespresso coffee machine with complimentary Italian coffee.

The luxury suite has just come out of a full renovation ( December 2015 ) and represents a quintessential Trastevere apartment. The rustic tile floor and the original ceiling beams bring a delightful sense of Roman history, harmoniously matched by the contemporary colors and elegant furnishings. Guests will feel completely at ease from the moment they walk in, thanks to the captivating and warm atmosphere. The living-dining area of this apartment is welcoming and inviting the guests to relax after trekking around Rome historical centre. In this area you can find a double leather sofa bedt, one single leather sofa, a coffee table and a plasma TV. The open kitchen is fully equipped with everything guests may need for daily living and it features a countertop and two stools to enjoy a breakfast or a dinner.

About Romula Giannotti

My name is Romula and with my husband Claudio we were 32 year owners of a travel agency which is located near the Vatican. That job kept us continually in contact with people for whom we organized travels all over the world. We are fluent in three languages: Italian, French and English, so we can also help you with all of your travel throughout Italy . You can ask our opinion on your stay in Rome or on your trip in Italy, how to divide the days into the differents cities, how to join the different places, how to decide if it is better to go by car or by train, or any other question !!! We just want 2 things :

1) to rent our 2 houses in Rome, the second one is located in the same lane Vicolo della Torre 12, you can visit the site homeaway #3571450

2) that you enjoy your stay in Rome and your trip in Italy !!! Dont hesitate to contact us !!!!

Romula Giannotti purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Romula Giannotti chose Rome

To deversify the tourism activity in a lovely city like Rome, I decided to invest in this tourism concept of vacation rental, trying to give the best of hospitality to our guests for a unforgetable holiday in the heart of the 'Eternel City' Trastevere !

We meet all our guests upon arrival to give them all the explications that they need to enjoy their stay, we offer them our avaibility for each kind of request as buy train tickets, leave their luggage in a little deposit to enjoy their last day in Rome, organize private cooking lessons, private day trips, wine tastings, transfers from and to the airport or the port of Civitavecchia where cruises depart for the Mediterranean, any service that can facilitate their stay in Rome.

What makes this apartment unique

The suite apartment is situated in the heart of Trastevere, very lively at night as it is full of trendy bars and quality restaurants frequented by tourists and Italians too. It is a typical house of the 1800, all renovated inside, located in the most beautifull alley of Trastevere, constantly photographed for its uniqueness. The bedroom is overlooking the courtyard of San Gallicano hospital, today is an historical monument, so my guests can sleep very well without being disturbed by noise that lasts all night in this very special neighbourhour of Rome, especially in summer.

An other benefit is that I have 2 houses in the same lane Vicolo della Torre (www.homeaway.com/228988 and www.homeaway.com/3571450) where 2 couples of friends travelling together can stay in their complete independence while being together.

Wonderful Roman Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are just wonderful in assisting new-comers to Rome and Italy. The apartment, while small, is perfectly appointed with all you need to be comfortable in Rome. The neighborhood is lively and the restaurants amazing. Romula assists you with taking the time to show you the best places and how to get there. Would highly recommend!!! Hope to return there again.

We love this apartment for its location, luxury finishes, and mostly for the wonderful owners, Romula and Claudio, who make you feel very welcome and met us upon arrival and departure as well as arranging taxi services. They care greatly for their guests' satisfaction and for all of the details of the apartment. This was our second stay at their apartment, and we look forward to the next one!

They gave my sister and I a rundown of the city and told us a few great places for dinner!!! I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone. Very safe neighborhood with laundry mat and grocery store nearby. Thank you for a wonderful first trip to Rome.

We Love Rome!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is wonderful. Romula and Claudio are charming. Wish we could have spent more time with them. Their quaint apartment is located in a wonderful part of Rome - great restaurants close by, fun nightlife walking around viewing the street performers, near the beautiful river, and within walking distance to most every major attraction. We walked everywhere - to the Spanish steps, the Pantheon, the Vatican, Coliseum, the shopping district just past the Pantheon...location was just we wanted. We took the H bus from Roma Termini station when we arrived by train to Rome which was very convenient. The apartment is 1 block from the bus stop.

We can't wait to visit Rome again and you can be sure, when we do, we will stay here!

Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

This cute apartment is tucked into the most amazing lane in Trastevere. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Claudio who provided us with a map, and tons of information about all the attractions in Rome as well as several excellent restaurant recommendations (and a bottle of wine which was a really nice touch!). Even though the apartment is in the middle of all the action, it was very quiet at night. It is well equipped with everything you need, and some nice extras too. All the major attractions are within walking distance and Trastevere itself is a lovely area to walk around and explore. We would highly recommend this property.

Lovely, comfortable flat in a delightful area

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 12 nights in this charming little holiday flat. It is beautifully decorated in a way that preserves the historic quality of the building (loved the timbered ceilings), but offers all the modern conveniences in a compact way. The leather furniture is comfortable. The bed too. We loved the area, one of my favorite parts of Rome. The flat is right in the center of the action, but tucked in a sweet little street. Our hosts were very attentive. The microwave went on the fritz the day after we arrived, and Claudio was there within an hour to replace it. We were very happy with our experience.
