This is a fine neighborhood in the fashionable center of the city. It is located conveniently between the Spanish Steps and Piazza Barberini and close to large villas and luxury hotels below the Via Veneto. There is even a rare public garage up the street. Even through you can walk all over the center of Rome from this convenient location, you are close to two subway stations, taxi ranks and excellent bus service.


In a fine building from the late 1700s, the Teodora apartment brings you into the heart of Rome in a warm and bright apartment. There is no elevator; the apartment is on the second floor, 32 steps from the front door.


As you enter the spacious living room, you find yourself ready to relax and enjoy your Roman holiday. Two large windows overlook the local street. A three seat sofa and two armchairs welcome all guests. A flat screen television shows Italian channels.

Adjoining the living room is a spacious bedroom that has two single beds that can be made up together as a queen-sized bed. A closet and shelves line one wall. A large window with sound insulating glass overlooks the street. One bathroom with step-in shower serves this bedroom and the public areas; it is accessed through a door next to the front door.

This apartment has a full dining room with a table that seats all guests. A wall of cupboards holds dishes. The kitchen has an open pass through to the dining room, good for natural light from the kitchen windows. This is a full kitchen with full refrigerator/freezer, stovetop, oven and dishwasher, pots and pans.

At the back of the apartment, the quiet master suite welcomes with its own small private terrace. The bed is a divisible king. A lovely antique cheval mirror stands next to full closets. Individual lights on the bedside tables. The room is bright with light through window and french doors to the patio. A cafe table invites you to leisurely breakfast while you enjoy the warm Mediterranean weather surrounded by garden plants.

About Pat

This apartment is offered by Italy Perfect. We are a family business with a mission! We want you to love visiting Italy as much as we do. We are sisters Lisa and Pat Byrne who lived in Italy in our youth and now travel there frequently for business and pleasure.

We offer only short term rentals that we carefully hand pick for their locations, furnishings, amenities, and that we can personally recommend and would want to stay in ourselves. We travel frequently to inspect, and usually stay in, the rentals we represent. We select vacation rentals that offer charm, good locations, cleanliness, quality furnishings and hospitable welcomes. We count the number of steps up to the property, check the size of the refrigerator, shower, listen for noise, inventory the kitchen equipment and even inspect the mattresses. This is our most important point of differentiation which sets us apart from many other vacation rental firms. Even with careful advance research and personal connections, we still choose to not represent more than 50% of the properties we visit. And, once we agree to represent a property we regularly re-inspect it to ensure our standards are being met.

Why Pat chose Rome

There is something to love in Italy for everyone. If you love art and history, Italy is marvelous. But you don't have to be crazy about art and history, nor do you have to speak Italian. Do you like fashion, shopping, cars, geology, photography, relaxation, hiking, biking...? There are riches of every sort waiting for you in Italy. And the foundation for your enjoyment of Italy is its rich culture and wonderful people. It is impossible to appreciate the Italian culture in a dispassionate manner; you will, at every turn, meet the hospitable, gentle, courteous, friendly, and happy Italian people. That is why vacation rentals are so wonderful; you get to meet people and the culture in person.

What makes this apartment unique

We want you to love your vacation, love Italy, and love the service of Italy Perfect.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed in the Teodora apartment for our first visit to Rome. It was a perfect location with walking distance to everything. The apartment was spacious and clean with a small terrace and great windows that open up to the busy street below. Our host was very accommodating and even stocked us with drinks and snacks! Highly recommend. Also the AC works very well :)

Great location, appartment just ok.

  • 3 of 5

The appatmenent is close to subway, taxi stand and 15 minute walk to Terminni Station. Also walking distance to grocery store. Just 5 min from the Spanish steps. There are two showers but water for only one. We had an ant problem in the kitchen and the dishes in the cupboard were not clean. Beds, however are comfortable. We were greeted by Enrica who was helpful and gracious. All in, great location but appartment just ok. We stayed 5 days in the last week April 2017

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are pleased you found the location excellent and the beds comfortable. We are very sorry you had problems with the shower. We don't know which one you are referring to because we checked and they both work. If you would respond to our emails or phone calls, we could learn about that. Certainly if you had contacted Enrica, she would have come right over to deal with it while you were there as well as any other concerns. Best regards Italy Perfect

One of our favorite areas of Rome is near the Borghese Gardens and this apartment fits the bill. It was a short walk to the western entrance. It has the added advantage of being close to many other museums, churches, and the Roman ruins. For a week's stay in Rome this is far better than a cramped hotel room, less costly, and provides much more freedom - it's lots of fun to shop in the local stores, whip up a batch of pasta, and enjoy the dish with a bottle of wine in the 'privacy' of your 'own home'.

A Wonderful Week in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

We spent seven nights at Teodora and found it to be the perfect place from which to explore Rome. The location is stellar, just a stroll from the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. The apartment offers great space and was perfect for us! While the kitchen is not state-of-the-art, it is very well-equipped and highly functional. We loved the espresso bar across the street and the food shop below well as the huge variety of shops all around. We found great restaurants and a good food market within a couple of blocks. We used Stefano, the driver recommended by Italyperfect, several times during our stay and we recommend him highly: very knowledgeable and professional, as was our greeter when we arrived. All in all, it was a wonderful experience and we would use Italyperfect anytime on return trips to this great country!

Amore, Amore, Amore.

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked in to the apartment just one block from the Spanish steps we felt completely at home there was a very thorough walk-through which showed us how to work everything in the apartment. The location could not be more perfect and the other plus to the apartment the two bedrooms are on either side of the apartment so for two couples that is perfect. The Café bistro across the street serves wonderful cafés and pastries and just down the street is a grocery store that had all of our needs met. Mostly wine needs. The beds are very comfortable and there is plenty of closet space. The living room window one opened is a perfect place to just stare down at the people on the street below and just watch Roman life and tourist life passing by. Gladys Kravitz would be in heaven . It was so nice to come home to a very comfortable apartment rather than a hotel room. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great location and a comfortable apartment. I'm actually looking into other properties that Italy perfect has for my trip next year . Thank you Pat.

Couldn't ask for more!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is perfect if you want to experience Rome as a travel who wants a local feeling. If you want to be very close everything, this is it. Very spacious with high ceilings and lots of light. We were welcomed on time and very warmly. Very central to all areas. Couldn't have asked for more for my dream vacation celebrating 30 years of marriage. We will come back again soon!!

La Dolce Vita in Rome

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in Teodora and it was perfect. The location is outstanding; we either walked or took public transportation to all the sights. The Trevi Fountain is close enough for an after dinner stroll (and perhaps a gelato) every evening. We stayed 2 weeks with the goal of living like Romans. Teodora gave us that experience. There are many outstanding restaurants within easy walking distance. Our favorite is Colline Emiliane (reservation required and if you want to feel like a local ask to sit in the back dining room). The apartment is spacious, the kitchen fully functional and both bedrooms large enough to comfortably accommodate a couple. We had 2 guests join us for a week and the space worked perfectly. We even cooked in a couple of evenings (sometimes an Italian primi and secondi can be a bit much regardless of how much you walk). There is a dishwasher and a washing machine (with large rack to dry your cloths). We will return to Rome and we will also return to Teodora.

PS. First time we stayed the wi-fi connection was marginal. That has been corrected and is now very fast.
