We spend most our free time traveling around the world! Knowing people and discover countries is the best way to increase your knowledge.

OLIVIA purchased this studio in 1900

Why OLIVIA chose Centro Storico

This apartment belongs to my husband family since the first years of 1900.

The Grand father of my husband, Nonno Pompeo, bought this property because he likes this ancient area.

We always thank him! It is fantastic to have such a wonderful apartment in the heart of Rome.

What makes this studio unique

Residenza Sansoni is located close to Piazza Navona, Archeological area and Coloseum, in the historic center of Rome, west of the Pantheon. The Piazza Navona area is full of many outdoor cafes, restaurants and night clubs in the neighbourhood . Restaurant downstairs, “Al Braciere”, makes to our guests a special price and offer a test of genuine Roman cooking. Piazza Campo Dei Fiori is very close to Residenza Sansoni. This Piazza become a popular spot for people to hang out to admire wonderful Renaissance and Baroque buildings, street artists, musicians and poets.

By day Campo de' Fiori is dominated by a world famous outdoor food market. By late afternoon a large team of street cleaners have removed any trace of the market and it becomes the lazy hangout for those having a coffee or aperitivo in one of the many outdoor bars lining the piazza. In the summer people spill out of the bars into the piazza and it has a party like atmosphere. The area always has a vibrant feel and is home to some of the best restaurants in town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment was perfectly located to explore the centre of Rome. The apartment was very clean on arrival, and the bed was very comfortable. The cooking area was good, and had pretty much everything that was needed, and our responsibilities were very clearly expressed. Olivia is an excellent host, and made sure that we felt like we knew where to go for things in Rome, and how to get around. She was also very flexible for our arrival time, which made it much more relaxing to come in and find the apartment. The area around the apartment is really great for eating out and doing some shopping, and the apartment itself was quiet and cool, which made it a perfect place to come back to for a recharge before going back out into Rome! We would definitely recommend the apartment to anyone staying in Rome, and we really enjoyed our time there! It really can't be emphasised enough how great the location is: it's only 5 minutes from the Pantheon, and right next to Piazza Navona! Overall this was the perfect apartment for a break in Rome!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented both apartments with our two teenage sons. This a wonderful apartment within walking distance of almost everything and a taxi stand in the parking area by the Chiesa Nuova about 50m away. The lift really helped after a long day of sight seeing - I have lower back and plantar fasciitis - and the beds were very comfortable as well. I also took advantage of the Thai massage place nearby! Walked to St. Peter’s one evening and nearly everywhere else. The street was very quiet at night, despite bring really close to Piazza Navona and side streets filled with shops, restaurants and tons of night life. Olivia was really helpful, making a reservation for us for Easter lunch the day we arrived and arranging a driver to meet us at the airport. Would definitely recommend.

Great location and wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

Olivia cares about each of the people who stays in her apartment and it shows. She really made us feel at home. She helped arrange transfer from the airport, helped with all our questions and was so responsive and kind.

The apartment location is fantastic - we walked everywhere from the apartment - it's truly centrally located. Everything you need is nearby: grocery store, restaurants, key sightseeing spots. A lovely HQ for our Rome adventures.

Location Perfect! Tight for 4. Great value!

  • 4 of 5

This place is ideally located right in the heart of the old city, about 5 minute walk to Piazza Navona, and only 1-minute from the most popular gelateria, Frigidarium! The apartment is very nice, but cramped for 4 people...more like a hotel room with a small cove for cooking. Very nice bathroom. A/C in July was a must and this A/C unit was fair. On third floor, so be prepared to climb some steps.

This was a wonderful launching place to visit Rome by foot, and had very easy access to bus for travel to Termini train station. Only a stone's throw from small grocery store.

Olivia was a very helpful host and gave us some good tips. Thanks for a great visit!
