The apartment was built in 1800 by Cardinal Riario, after whom the street gets its name. The flat is very quiet, with a monastery across the street and the Botanic Garden at one side. Even though it’s right in the heart of Trastevere, you can enjoy the tranquillity whilst still being very close to restaurants, cafes and shops in an area with a lively nightlife.

The apartament is in a cul de sac, closed at the end by the Botanic Garden and the slopes of the

Gianicolo Hill. One can admire the beautiful surroundings, while enjoying a good glass of wine from the condo terrace - on the top of the building - used as well to hang laundry according to a typical Roman tradition.

The flat counts only ten apartments so to preserve and enjoy the tranquillity and quite, in spite it's very close to many typical restaurants, cafes and shops in an area with a lively nightlife.

Not far from the house, you can also find news-stands open till late at night.

This residential street is considered, by the locals, one of the most charming in Rome for its backdrop of greenery.

About Luisa

After many years of living in the midst of the Tuscan countryside, from time to time I crave museums, movies and good shops. Even though distance-wise I am closer to Florence, I prefer heading to Rome for my citybreaks. I like Rome because is my home town. Here I attended the Art College; that's why I love any kind of Art.

I love Rome for its nightlife, no risk of finding restaurants closed at 10 pm.

My favourit interests are: tea, wine, cinema, my pets, gardens, books, museums and Rome.

Luisa purchased this apartment in 1986

Amazing Location! Luisa is a fantastic host!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the location was great! A 30 minute walk to all the main attractions. We absolutely loved all the restaurants in the area and the ambience of this area. We brought our family to Rome and this place was very comfortable for us and the children (nice and quiet at night). Luisa is an amazing host! She was very helpful in arranging a taxi both to and from the airport. Touches such as this go a long way and make the trip so much easier! We hope to visit again soon!

Awesome apartment near the river.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment in the Trastevere area, with lots of great food, nice locals, and close to all the monuments. We are in our 50s and 40s, and we're able to walk to all the sites in Rome within a 1/2 an hour. The unit has a very large bathtub, which was wonderful for soaking after all the walking. The only thing that would have been better, would be a longer bed, but as I am 6'6" (198+cm), I don't consider this a fault of the apartment. I run into it almost everywhere I go.

An excellent choice for Rome

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed for 7 nights and thoroughly enjoyed Luisa's apartment. I cannot think of anything that we needed that wasn't provided. Luisa met us as planned (after arranging our taxi -- THANKS) and explained everything -- she is a competent and welcoming host. We particularly appreciated the apartment's high ceilings and lovely tiled floors. We cooked often and the kitchen is very well equipped. I think the apartment is ideally positioned -- in a quiet dead-end street (opposite a convent), yet only a short walk from the rest of busy Trastevere (noisy at night), the city over the river via pedestrian bridge, or towards the Vatican area. Highly recommended.

Great place to stay in Rome

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Luisa's apartment in August for four days and I am very happy that we have found it. Luisa had been very helpful and kind, helped us with the taxi (Mario was truly great!) and waited for us to give us a tour of the place.

We really liked the location and the space. With three teenagers, our family could fit just fine. The apartment is clean and well equipped, the distance to all the attractions is really close. There are a few shops nearby as well as some excellent pizza and ice cream stops. We have used public transit a lot and the bus stop is mere three minutes away.

I have to mention our small mishap that was resolved very fast and with minimal stress on our part. On our second last day, the key in the lock got stuck and no amount of pulling could get it out. Even though Luisa lives away from Rome, one phone call sufficed to rally her brother to come and help. He was very helpful and while we went to a pizzeria, he and his friend fixed the lock. To me it is a sign of a great VRBO owner, not only renting out, but most importantly, being very helpful.

Many thanks to Luisa and Georgie (at least I hope it was his name)!

I would definitely recommend this apartment to my friends and hope that it houses many happy holidaymakers!

Thank you Luisa :)

Great location, large apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Luisa's apartment for 6 weeks and are very happy that we did! My mother also joined us for 2 of those weeks. The apartment is quite large with 2 large bedrooms and is very well located on a quiet street just a few minutes walk into the heart of Trastevere. We actually walked everywhere: the Vatican, Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Coloseum, Galleria Borghese, San Giovani in Laterano, Appian Way and so much more. All of the sights are within walking distance of Luisa's apartment.

The apartment is on the first floor (one flight of stairs up) and we would walk up to the rooftop to hang our laundry to dry. Nice view of the surrounding area from there too.

Luisa met us at the apartment when we arrived to show us around and how everything worked. She was also easily available to us by phone or email during our stay.

We would definitely recommend this apartment!

Thank you Luisa!

Quaint, cosy and filled with the essence of Rome

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Louisa's apt. for four nights, arriving on a monday and leaving friday morning, and had an absolutely fabulous time. We were a party of 6.

Louisa met us at the apt and showed us around making sure to answer all of our questions. Her place was clean and so adorable, we really loved the high ceilings, floor tiles, and her personal design. It really added to our stay in Rome. We enjoyed making meals there, and in the mornings i would do tai chi on the roof over looking the city. As mention her apt is within walking distance of all the major sites, and if one needs a bus it is easy enough to figure. She also provided a number that we could call to get traveling information in english, which was great as i was in need of it for planning our departure, to catch a train.

Being right in the city and close to everything was great, but also equally appreciated was how quiet her neighborhood is at night. Yet one could walk down the street and in a couple of blocks be in the heart of Trastevere's eating and nightlife area. Trastevere is such a fun neighborhood to explore with all of it's specialty shops, cheese, bread, pastries, our heads were spinning and our baskets full. Honesty we did not have enough time to do all that we wished. We dream of returning to Rome and would absolutely recommend staying at Louisa's home. It was a perfect place to explore Rome and get a feel of an Italian neighborhood. The apt building was filled with plants each floor, and the smells coming from other apts. in the building was amazing, all truly adding to our experience.

Thank you Louisa for everything, we will always appreciate the warmth and hospitality of your home.
