1950 Building, flat designed by the earlier Rationalist projects of Ridolfi and Frankl, 100 metres from the historical park of “villa Torlonia”. It was the elegant home of the aristocratic Torlonia family from 1797, glorified as Mussolini's suburban HQ in the 1930s and trashed by Anglo-American forces when they made it their high command base (1944-7). Villa Torlonia is now returned to its original splendor. Mussolini's bunker beneath the house can be visited by appointment. A number of structures are dotted around the park. Exhibitions are held in the Casino dei principi, which also houses the archives of the inter-war Scuola romana artistic movement. The Casina delle civette, a wacky Swiss chalet-folly, was endowed with all kinds of stupendous stained glass and boiseries in 1916-20; the art nouveau fittings have been beautifully restored and supplemented with much more stained glass from the same period. The Limonaia - where lemon trees were kept through the winter - is now a pleasant café-restaurant, and the faux-medieval villa by its side is home to Technotown where the children can enjoy with interesting experiments. It is just a five-minute walk from the metro stop “Bologna” on line B, few stops from the Colosseo, but offer also buses to go to the city center, 3 Km from the Spanish step.
The apartment, recently renovated and equipped with all the comforts to make your stay pleasant and welcoming, is located on the fifth floor (with lift to the 4th floor, one floor with no lift ) has a living room, a kitchen, two bedrooms, one with double bed one with a single bed plus a sofa bed for an additional guest in the living room. There is one bathroom, including toilet, bidet and shower, also has a washing machine and hair dryer. The terrace, enhanced by a beautiful panoramic view of the magnificent Romans roof and gardens, is very large and livable and offers opportunities for recreation and relaxation .In Rome, thanks to the mild climate the attic penthouse becomes particularly nice because you can use the terrace for most of the year.
Our family had a comfortable and enjoyable 10 day stay at this property. The flat is clean and attractive with a full kitchen. The giant outside veranda is lovely and a nice place to enjoy the cool morning or evening weather of Rome. The location is near several embassies and very safe. Also, it's just a short walk to Piazza Bologna, where you can pick up the Metro or local Bus and go to any important site in Rome. The flat is quiet with no traffic sound coming in from the outside. It was helpful having a washing machine in the flat. Air conditioners worked nicely and cooled the place quickly.
The owners are extremely nice and helpful. They assisted with helping us know what public transport to use and answered all the questions we had. Their English is fluent and they live in the flat below, so they are easily reached. They have put together some maps and restaurant suggestions which made our stay more enjoyable. They can reserve a taxi to pick you up from the airport, which we did. There is a beautiful park across the street from the apartment building. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or family member.
