Overview

About the property

A very typical loft with a particular view of Vicolo della Torre

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 holiday home to experience a great stay in the eternal city!

The area surrounding the apartment:

'The Amazing little 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, the Jewish Quarter, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, the Roman Forum, and many other sights, in no time at all (15 to 30 minutes walks maximum). 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 and wine 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 Amazing little Suite in Trastevere' will surely delight you.

I want to emphasize 5hat this typical Roman house of 250 years is locate3d in one of the most beautiful lane of the ancient Rome, continually photographed by tourists be3cause Vicolo Della Torre looks like a typical Roman village in the heart of a big city like Rome.

I recommend this little suite ton all those who are not looking for a simple accommodation in Rome, but to all those who want to experience a special house of other times with all the modern comforts as free WiFi by optic fiber, air conditioning or heating, satellite TV that means your favorite programs in your language.

The apartment:

This charming apartment is located on the first floor ( 12 stairs ) 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 as Trastevere. This will allow you to sleep at night, advantage that few holiday rentals can offer in this particular neighborplace of Rome.

The house is a comfortable little Suite, very modern and all renovated, pecfect for a couple. There is a king size bed with a living room, very well equiped with tv with a satelite to enjoy your programs all over the world, and wireless internet free.

On the ground floor, the Suite has a room, which has a key, available to our guests, where they can leave the luggage that they dont need for their stay in Rome. We refer to our guests coming to Europe to spend a long holiday, ridind two seasons, with several suitcases that will occupy a lot of space at home. You should take advantage of this opportunity especially for a short stay in Rome. This same place will also be used to store your luggage in case you booked a flight in the afternoon or evening the day of departure and you want to enjoy an other day in Rome.

The amanzing little suite has just come out of a full renovation in July 2013 and represents a quintessential Trastevere apartment. The rustic tile floor and the original wall behind the bed, 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 , a coffee table and a plasma TV. The 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 are 32 year owners of a travel agency which is located near the Vatican. That job keeps us continually in contact with people for whom we organize 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, we will be very happy to give you our opinion, the places to visit, the minimum stay in a city, and other details.

From the moment you book the Suite, you can consider to have a friend in Italy who will do her best to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

I will meet you the day of your arrival to give you all the necessary informations about places to visit, what to avoid, local restaurants, transport and local customs.

You can contact me any time via phone or email and I will answer you as soon as possible to any information you need.

I am living near the Vatican and with my little Smart I can be in Trastevere in only 10 minutes to resolve any situation.

For this reason I have so many friends around the world and through them I receive many reservations of their friends who in turn recommend other friends, this is my advertising and especially my satisfaction. I have 2 houses in the same lane Homeaway #228988 my first house that has 7 years old and when I received a couple that repeated their stay for 3 times in my house !!!!!!!!!

Romula Giannotti purchased this studio in 2013

Why Romula Giannotti chose Rome

To deversify the tourism activity in a lovely city like Rome, I decided in 2007 to invest in this new tourism concept of vacation rental, trying to give the best of hospitality to our guests for an unforgetable holiday in the heart of the 'Eternel City' Trastevere ! I meet all my guests upon arrival to give them all the explications that they need to enjoy their stay. I begun with one house, 'Trilussa' apartment homeaway #228988 and now I have two!

Why this propoerty????

I fell in love with Vicolo della Torre and I am sure it will be the same for you !!!!!!!

A very typical location, with a private entrance, an unforgettable atmosphere.

What makes this studio 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 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. It is important for a tourist to stay very centraly because everything is nearby walking distance. The greater advantage of Trastevere is that when you return home after a long day, after a shower, you will find behind the corner of the house a choice of places when to spend an evening with the most pleasant restaurants, music, pubs and fun. The location of the little Suite is perfect to spend a quiet night because situated in a little lane, Vicolo della Torre, and not on a main street of this noisy and lively neighborhood.

A second benefit is to live in the same way of local people, as my neighbor Gianfranco who is born in this house. You can see that it still uses to hang the washing out of the windows, for this reason you will have a laundry line out of your window to live this unique experience.

This apartment is AMAZING.

  • 5 of 5

True to the pictures but better. Romula and Claudio were extremely helpful in all aspects from how to get there to where to visit and best way. The place is amazing. The location is perfect, it is a lively area but a quiet lane. You have everything at your finger tips. The neighborhood is safe and fun and you are in a 15 -20 minute walking distance of the collesseum, pantheon, vatican, and much more. The apartment is well set up, comfortable bed, nice amenities, with an open window you hear live music, smell amazing cuisine, it's perfect.

Will be back! This place made our state that much more amazing.

The Real Rome

  • 5 of 5

Coming into Trastevere for the first time was like coming into to French Quarter in New Orleans for the first time. What have we gotten ourselves into? Likewise, by the time we left we loved the neighborhood. The narrow lane and entrance are so photogenic that there is a constant stream of photographers. The apartment is charming and well appointed. Be forewarned that the paparazzi cannot see in during the day, be sure to pull the curtains at night unless you want to put on a show. All the major tourist attractions are within reasonable walking distance. Better yet, spend a few leisurely hours at a café on the Piazza di Santa Maria just around the corner. There are too many trattoria choices nearby. If you want a feel for the “real” Old Rome, this is the perfect place to stay.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 nights in Rome, at Romula and Claudio's larger apartment, on the same street as the little suite. The location was perfect in every way. Right in the heart of Trastevere, we had a taste of a real Roman neighbourhood. Lovely dining, beautiful piazza's, delicious coffee and a grocery store all just moments away by foot. Our host and hostess were amazing from our first communication nearly a year ago, right up until our final 'Arrivederci!' They gave us many tips about restaurants and places to visit which were spot on!

Their driver, Stephano, met us after a very late flight for our drive into the city, and delivered us back to the airport for our departure. He was more than reliable; funny and a bit of a tour guide as well!

The location allowed us to walk to all major attractions; we only used a taxi once to get to the train station. The taxi stand is very close, however, if walking is not your speed. We were thrilled to meander through the black cobblestone lanes of Rome, winding our way to the Colosseum, Pantheon, Vatican, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps, discovering many treasures along the way including yummy cappuccino, gelato, and lovely shops.

The apartment itself is beautiful, recently renovated, and well appointed. I cannot think of a single thing you could need that isn't already there. The wifi works perfectly.

The neighbourhood is lively, but the lane is quiet and we slept in comfort. Even late at night and early in the morning, wandering through the streets feels safe.

Thank you Romula and Claudio for everything; we hope to return someday! If you are thinking of traveling to Rome, February is a perfect time. The crowds are minimal and the weather is very temperate; we enjoyed 14-17 degrees Celcius with a few showers and clouds, but very pleasant.

You will not regret booking either of their properties, I promise!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The suite is in my opinion in one of the best parts in Rome. Why? The centre is filled with the touristic attractions which are main reasons for trips to Rome (and so did we visit them). The attractions are close and we've been able to see about 80% in one day. But then we were looking for those authentic plaza's with restaurants and bars with old fashioned buildings, decorated with plants and flowers, and that is just around the corner in Trastevere! If you like these kind of places, walk out of the Vicolo della Torre, don't head to the centre but go to the left and wander around. You'll find them everywhere (the hardest decision will be which one to pick).

The suite has everything you'll need for two persons! It is cosy, warm, it has luxury and a great authentic atmosphere! It welcomes you and absorbes you in a part of Italy instead of a modern looking room which is located in Italy.. And... The owners are just generous for what they offer you compared with their asking costs. They'll help you with anything and make the stay complete for any couple! It's just: Wonderful!

For the cultural wandering people, look no further, this is it!
