Overview

Rome Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, Studio (Sleeps 3-5)

LO.VE COLOSSEUM (38 Via Capo d’Africa)

80 meters from the Colosseum, this beautiful newly refurbished apartment is located in the most ancient and distinctive part of Rome, on the 2 floor of an elegant, quiet 18th-century building, recently renovated.

A walk along the nearby Via dei Fori Imperiali will lead to all the major historic sites: Piazza Venezia, the Bocca della Verità, the Pantheon, Campo dei Fiori, and across the river to the Castel Sant’Angelo and the Vatican Museums.

Another walk leads to the Trevi Fountain, the beautiful Spanish Steps and the shopping area of ??Via del Corso.

It’s easy to reach the Testaccio and Trastevere neighborhoods, the first famous for its tasty trattorias, disco pubs and the Porta Portese market (open only on Sundays), the second for its narrow streets, full of restaurants and small shops open until late at night.

The area around the apartment has lots of trattorias, pizzerias, and high-class restaurants where you can taste typical Roman cuisine, and cafés and wine bars where you can have a drink at the end of a day spent admiring the wonders of Rome, set against the background of the Colosseum at sunset...

Within walking distance you can find banks, grocery stores, bakeries and supermarkets, an open-air market where you can buy fresh vegetables and fruit, and various shops.

To make your stay even more pleasant, you’ll be only a short distance from the gardens of Villa Celimontana, a summer site for open-air jazz concerts and movie screenings, with easy access to other parks and pleasant strolling areas.

The apartment is well-placed for public transportation, with the Colosseum Metro stop nearby, and easy connections to Termini and Ostiense railroad stations.

On request, when you make your reservation, we can provide a comfortable private car service to take you to and from Rome’s airports and railroad stations, and any other destination you seek, either within the city or beyond its walls.

The apartment has been tastefully and fully renovated by a well-known Roman architect.

All furnishings and fittings are new and of high quality.

WiFi access, air conditioning in every room and independent central heating complete the features of property.

The apartment consists of a lounge, a kitchen, a bedroom and bathroom, and is equipped with all the amenities needed for a twenty-first century stay while retaining distinctive features such as a centuries-old coffered ceiling.

The spacious bedroom has a king-size bed with a comfortable memory foam mattress and a 32-inch LCD TV.

The brightly-lit living room has a comfortable queen-size sofa bed and a 42-inch high-resolution LED TV.

The finest bed linen and towels provided during your stay will guarantee maximum comfort.

The kitchen has everything you’ll need, including a microwave and dishwasher, and the bathroom has a window and a spacious shower.

LO.VE COLOSSEUM FEATURES: WiFi access, air conditioning, LED HD satellite TV, USB port, HD card access for photos and videos, washer dryer, refrigerator, dishwasher, heating with adjustable thermostat, iPod/iPhone charger, clock radio, safe.

About cristiano gaetani

My name is Cristiano, I am 42 years old and I was born in Rome, im a sunny person I love to travel, love music and taking long walks with my family and my dogs

cristiano gaetani purchased this apartment in 2011

Why cristiano gaetani chose Rome

Because it is at 80 meters from the Coliseum! It is very cozy home, new, bright and comfortable in the heart of the ancient city, full of typical restaurants just a few steps from the apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

extremely close with the most important historical sites of the city, and also the proximity of the Villa Celimontana park for walking in nature, breathing in the ancient atmosphere ....

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and you will too! Cristiano is helpful and friendly and the apartment has a number of positive qualities. It has all the amenities, a very comfy bed, and a great shower. We enjoyed the nearby restaurants and cafe, and it was very easy to grab breakfast and freshly squeezed orange juice from the local grocery store. ATM right down the street. It is very close to the Colosseum--we walked everywhere except the catacombs. It's a great deal!

Apt is comfortable and in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is large and well situated by a metro stop. Even with a St Patricks Day celebration at the bars below, we slept without a problem. The washer dryer was very handy. The king bed was very comfortable and extra blankets and pillows were available. Everything was clean and up to date. We would recommend to family and friends.

Perfect Apartment in an Awesome Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week during a 3-week trip to Italy. We loved this apartment- we would stay here again in a heartbeat if we return for another visit to Rome.

It is exactly as pictured and the rooms are quite spacious. The bed is quite comfortable and it was so nice to have a washer/ dryer in the apartment. The kitchen had everything you would need if you chose to cook during your stay.

The location was awesome. Close to the Coloseum, the Forum and Palatine Hill. Close to two supermarkets, lots of restaurants, and a couple of gelaterias. There is a great little place at the end of the street that has really good expresso too. We enjoyed walking around the neighborhood after dinner.

Cris was awesome to work with. Prompt responses to all my inquiries and gave a very thorough tour of the neighborhood and apartment. We took advantage of the car service from the airport and I'm so glad that we did. It was nice to be able to just get off the plane after a 10 hour flight and not have to worry about how to get to the apartment. I recommend using it.

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment. Cristiano was great, took lots of time orienting us and gave us wonderful recommendations. Close to the metro but walking distance to almost everything. The photos do not do this apartment justice! It is large, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Definitely would recommend!!!

Cristiano

  • 5 of 5

We were in Europe for 7 weeks and booked a large number of apartments with VRBO. Cristiano was by far the most welcoming, accommodating and helpful landlord of them all. From the moment we stepped into the apartment he made us feel right at home. Gave us the complete tour, provided us with lots of tips and advice on attractions to see in the city and how to get there, best prices and restaurants in the area, how to stay well informed in a foreign city and he also drove us around the neighborhood to get accustomed to where things are such as the local grocery store. His apartment was absolutely perfect... very modern, clean, comfortable and was able to accommodate our family of 5 easily with an additional roll-away bed. It's also 5 minute walking distance from the Colosseum and close to lots of amenities and restaurants. Highly recommend to all people looking for a great place to stay. Thanks Cris. We will never forget our stay in Rome and everything you did to make it an amazing experience! All the best to you and your family. Elton
