The Masterpiece apartment:
This is an unbelivable apartment with hotel standards located in the heart of the ancient Rome and it has a private priceless terrace!
Try to imagine doing breakfast or dinner on the Terrace.... this would be an unforgettable experience.
The building is more than 400 years and in the living room there is still the original wood ceiling!
If this unit is booked please consider my other apartments:
'The Masterpiece apartment' is a charming 2 bedroom apartment, adjacent to the world famous 'Campo de' fiori', within walking distance to all major monuments and museums in town and next to a Church of 1306 AC, Santa Barbara dei librai.
The apartment is equipped with amenities such as kitchen, bathroom, and a fantastic living room with a pull out couch that can comfortably sleep two with a special mattress to add on!
This apartment is connected with CABLE TV so you can see all world's channels
The property is on 4° floor with no elevator (less than 60 steps to do) like in all the original buildings in the area and there are 8 more steps to get from the kitchen to the terrace.
I know 60 steps could be bad... but usually all my guests do them 1 time ad day, coming back home. So no problem! And also... the view from the Terrace is priceless!
The amazing old square downstairs boasts a number of attractions which keeps it busy most hours of the day, but the vibrant life outside is quieted by the new installed windows!!

You should stay in this apartment not only for the location and the terrace, but because it is an apartment that can't be anywhere else than Rome. Many apartment are all the same all around the world... could be Tokio, could be Berlin. This one not! The experience you get from it is just a real roman one: you will truly enjoy the city and its vibes... keeping the memory of a perfect stay forever!
LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION
TERRACE TERRACE TERRACE
The location: perfect. In the city center, walking distance to ALL monuments, museums, things to do.
The Terrace: absolutely spectacular! There is no way to describe it!
I have rented vacation properties with VRBO several times, but this was my first rental out of the country. Luca made everything so easy by arranging airport transfers and making sure we were greeted at the property at check in to become familiar with the property. Even though Luca was out of town when we arrived, he followed up with us on email to be sure everything was okay and check on whether we needed anything. When he returned to Rome, we met for espresso and a nice chat. We were very impressed with his professionalism and attention to detail. The property was lovely! Location was perfect for us because we love the market and several of our favorite restaurants are nearby. The terrace was perfect for relaxing with wine - first couple bottles were provided by Luca :). There are live herbs (mint, basil, rosemary) on the stairway which was perfect for seasoning fresh food from the market. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. Property is clean and furnishings were very comfortable. Loved being able to wash clothes. Would not hesitate to rent this property again or one of Luca's other properties.
We had a wonderful time in Luca's apartment. It's clean and the deck is great. Location can't be beat. He was very responsive and helpful before and during our stay. Rent here with confidence.
This was our 2nd time at Luca's wonderful apartment in Rome! Husband, kids and I, all had a spectacular time! Apartment was very clean, and spacious for our family of 4. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the terrace! Ate many breakfasts and dinners here as well as a good bit of vino! Luca is truly caring for each of his guests and goes out of his way to have his guests enjoy their holiday! Enjoyed talking with him on arrival. As a mother, I know his parents did a great job, he is an admirable young man! Please let us know when you come to the US - would love to show you Maryland! We will return!

The apartment was great. Great location. We can walk to any place in Rome. Luca was incredible. His communication before we arrived was amazing. He met us at the apartment, helped me with my luggage and stocked our fridge since we arrived late. He just had the personal touches that made the apartment memorable. The terrace would be awesome in warmer weather. Despite it being December, we sat up there under a blanket, viewed the holiday lights and listened to all of the church bells ringing. Only negative is that it is truly 5 flights of stairs. However, the location made it totally worthwhile.
This is our second time staying at Luca's beautiful roof top terrace home, and it was even better than the first! It is still as pictured and just as clean and tidy, with all the extras you may need. Please take the time to work in the small kitchen so you can dine on the terrace, so worth it! Two grocery stores within walking distance, plus the market for produce. The view and the location make all the steps worth the climb.
Aside from the fact that this location is the best, you must consider the host! Luca cares so much about his guests, your happiness and your safety. He works hard to make sure your visit to Rome is the best. Without his fabulous greeting on our first stay I'm not sure we would have gone back again. This year he showed us the best place to have carbonarra! Of the things he offers take note of the driver to and from the airport. So worth the money, very professional and kind! Takes so much stress out of your travel.
If you are unable to book this apartment I strongly suggest you contact Luca about other properties he manages. He is a fantastic host and I think he should consider being a tour guide! If I am so lucky to go back to Rome again I will stay here!!
We stayed here for four nights - my mum aged 74, myself, my son aged 19 and his friend. The boys slept on the fold out couch which was plenty big enough for them. Mum and I shared the bed in the bedroom which is very large so room enough for us both. Luca provided a rollaway bed but we didn't need it.
I loved the kitchen - it was well supplied with everything we needed so I bought groceries from the nearby supermarket and we cooked most nights. Dinner on the rooftop terrace with all the candles it was perfect!
The apartment is one minute from Campo di Fiori, about 8 minutes from Piazza Navona and about 10 from the Pantheon.
It is also 5 minutes from the Jewish Ghetto and Largo Argentina (the nearest cab rank). It is also one minute to Ponte Sisto - cross over this little pedestrian bridge and you're in charming Trastevere.
The apartment is in a tiny piazza with a great cafe/bar for your morning shot of espresso and cornettos. There is a primary/high school in the piazza which is great as you get to see the locals dropping their kids to school and having a coffee in the piazza.
Water pressure in the bathroom was excellent. Hot water came from one of those instant hot water servers so it never ran out even with four of us. The cooker was gas and worked perfectly. The front door was easy to open - no fiddly alarm codes or multiple keys.
We had an issue with a power outage (a problem on the street) but Luca bent over backwards to get it fixed even though it was out of his control. It didn't matter anyway as we were out most of the day and it didn't affect our stay except for a brisk cold shower in the morning.
There is a washer in a little storage shed on the roof terrace which is easy to operate and you can dry your clothes on the portable clothes line.
Only issue are the 60+ stairs so if anyone in your party has mobility issues this apartment may not suit, however my mum has heart issues and she just took her time going up.
A beautiful apartment - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
