About the property

More than 200 positive reviews, Close to 'Metro A'. Only 4 stops to COLOSSEUM

We are passionate about our hospitality and consistently rewarded with positive feedback, more than 200. We guarantee you a truly satisfying stay. The apartment is in the centrally located district of APPIO-SAN GIOVANNI, close to the historical centre of Rome. Our apartment is in very high demand because it offers the advantage of close vicinity to ‘METRO A’ (subway Line A), the faster and simpler means of moving around Rome. The nearest subway station is ‘Colli Albani’, a stop on the convenient Metro A only 2-3 minutes of walk from the apartment.

- For your reference and information, below you will find answers to the more commonly asked questions.

WHICH TOURIST ATTRACTIONS CAN WE REACH FROM THE SUBWAY? With the apartment already located in a central position, the whole historical center is only a stone’s throw away. You will easily reach the Basilica of St. John Lateran (4 stops, 8 minutes), Viale Manzoni (Coliseum area, 5 stops, 10 minutes) and then Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore (Esquilino), Termini Station, Via Nazionale, Via Cavour, Via Veneto, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Piazza del Popolo (Villa Borghese), Via del Corso, Saint Peter Square, the Vatican Museums. Metro A (subway Line A) intersects with Metro B (subway Line B) at the Termini train station, from which you can easily travel to the Colosseum (il Colosseo), the Imperial Fora (I Fori Imperiali), the Circus Maximus (il Circo Massimo) and the Baths of Caracalla (le Terme di Caracalla).

ARE THERE ALTERNATIVES MEANS OF TRAVEL ASIDE FROM THE SUBWAY? Yes. Near the apartment there are numerous bus lines that provide an alternative to the subway. Among these is bus line 85 with a stop 40 meters from the apartment. This bus line runs regularly and serves the entire historical center. On bus line 85 you can directly reach the Basilica of St. John Lateran, the Coliseum, the Campidoglio, Via del Corso, Trevi Fountain and Stazione Termini.

YOU CAN WALK TO THE PLACES OF TOURIST INTEREST? Yes, for example the famous Appia Antica Archaeological Park is within walking distance (or with bus n. 660) crossing the Caffarella Park whose entrance is located 5 minute of walk from the apartment. The Appia Antica park, major tourist destination, is very visited because of the presence of the Catacombs of Domitilla, San Callisto, San Sebastiano and the many archaeological finds, including the mausoleums of Cecilia Metella and the original road paving of Ancient Rome.

WILL YOU GIVE US SUGGESTIONS AND DIRECTIONS? Yes. Before your arrival you will receive precious advice with regards to public transport, how to reduce the costs of museum visits, and how to avoid the very long lines at the Colosseum and the Vatican Museums. Our guests have very much appreciated the utility of this information. In the apartment you will find further suggestions, and a tourist guidebook that we will lend to you with pleasure.

IS THE APARTMENT IN A QUIET AREA? Yes. The apartment is situated off a main road, in a quiet street with little traffic. In addition, the apartment is equipped with double-glazed windows.

ON WICH FLOOR IS THE APARTMENT LOCATED? The apartment is on the 3th floor of a well-maintained condominium. There is a lift.

Close to the apartment you will find every type of store (bakeries, delicatessens, fish markets, butchers, pastry shops, rotisseries, ice-cream stores, etc.) and a typical local market with fresh meat and fish, and above all locally produced fruit and vegetables.

ARE THERE RESTAURANTS AND PIZZERIAS IN THE AREA? Yes, the neighbourhood of Appio Latino has many restaurants, excellent typical ‘trattorie’ and pizzerias. We will be able to advise you of the best places for quality and price.

CAN WE ARRANGE TO BE PICKED UP? Yes, it is a service that is very much appreciated by our guests and one that we offer willingly around business hours. We can provide the pick-up services without charge from Ciampino Airport to the apartment. As the Fiumicino (“Leonardo da Vinci”) Airport is approximately 35km from the apartment, we kindly request reimbursement of expenses should you wish to be picked up from there. Providing that it is outside of business hours, we may also be able to accompany you back to your point of departure.

CAN YOU CONFIRM THE PRICE? As we have specified in our advertisement, the price varies in line with the season and the number of guests. The rental price includes all utilities (electricity, gas, heating, air conditioning, Wi-Fi). The rental price does not include the flat rate contribution for the final cleaning of the apartment and for the washing of sheets and towels (a total of 40 euro).

WHY SHOULD WE CHOOSE YOUR APARTMENT? Because our guests have been 100% satisfied and our reviews, more than 200, are wholly positive. We are confident that you, too, will be satisfied.

ARE YOU AN AGENCY? No, we are a family composed of a father (Fernando), a mother (Angela), two sons (Davide and Francesco) and a daughter (Chiara). We passionately manage our vacation home.


This is, in summary, the testimonies of our many guests, all wholly positive. And we are confident that you, too, will be satisfied with your stay.

Thank you and have an amazing “Roman Holiday”

Fernando and Angela

Why Fernando chose Rome

When our children were young, Me and my husband decided to buy an apartment in the neighborhood 'Appio San Giovanni' because it is central and well served by the main metro line (line A). We did not imagine at this point that this apartment will host other families.

We decided to renovate and refurnish it well to welcome people who chose to stay in Rome in a warm and comfortable environment.

Today, our efforts are rewarded with all these entirely positive comments that we find in our listing on the site of "Homelidays."

We are confident you will be satisfied with our apartment too.

Rome will do the rest. Our city is a unique place. Indeed, every street, every church and every site shows that the Eternal City is an open air museum. Rome is not only for Romans, it is part of the World Heritage.

Good Roman Holiday.

Angela Fernando and our children Davide, Chiara and Francesco.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is as wonderful as the pictures. Our host, Fernando and his son Francesco were pleasant, helpful and friendly. They care about not only the apartment but your comfort. They made the entire process easy! They have a book set up in different languages to assist you with the apartment and things to do in Rome and around the area. The apartment is fully stocked with everything you could need during your stay. While the location isn't directly in the city center, it is easy to get there from the metro, which is close to the apartment. There is a supermarket very close, great restaurants (Olio & Farina) and Gelato shops close by. I'm very glad we choose this apartment and would definitely stay here again when we return to Rome. Fernando and Francesco, many thanks for allowing us to stay in your lovely home, Theresa, Chris and Jenny

Perfect apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Fernando and family have a wonderful apartment and service. We were picked up at the airport by his son, and given a tour of the neighborhood and apartment. We were also delivered back to the airport for our departure early on Sunday morning. The apartment is extremely comfortable, clean, and modern. The grocery store is right next door, bus and subway are a few blocks away, very good trattorias close by. I highly recommend this apartment for anyone traveling to Rome.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We were picked up from the Fuimicino airport after a sleepless overnight flight, by Davide. (Fernandos son).

He gave us a tour on the way and his English is exceptional! He showed us how close the supermarket is, just below the apartment! We cooked a meal right away after going to the supermarket. They left a gift of Pinot Grigio,bottled water and juice. The beds were very comfortable and the Metro was very close (Colli Albani). We loved our stay and it was clean... And Comfortable! The parrots were outside our window everyday too! We have a 9 year old daughter and she slept in the room with us, which was very comforting to her. Grazie Mille from the Styrons! Come see us in the Outer Banks!

Fabulous, well-equipped, clean and lovely people!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was easy to find, in a good area, sparklingly clean and had everything we could possibly need. Davide showed us how to operate everything, even the espresso maker. He took so much time to advise us on where to go, how to get there and answered any questions we had. We were given detailed instructions on metro, buses, sights to see, shopping and restaurants. The apartment couldn't have been nicer or the welcome we received any friendlier. We were extremely happy with this rental and would definitely recommend it and hope to stay there again...soon!
