Overview

About the property

Our apartement is the perfect blend of space, comfort, for 2 people

#We are 100 mt. from Tiber River thath divides us from Trastevere.

The district is in a strategic position to freely move around the city and full enjoy it!

Imperial Rome is 10 minutes Walking distance with Circo Maximum, Coliseum, Imperial Forum.

With a beautiful walk along the characteristic Tiberriver bank (Lungotevere) we can reach in a few minutes the site of "Bocca della Verità" (famous movie spotwhere we suggest to take some photos). Here you can exploit different tours: one option is to walkalong the "Roman Stadium - Circus Maximus" lenght movingon towards the entrance of the "Coliseum and the Imperial Forum"; a second one is to proceed along the Tiber river bank, a route which will easily lead to "Campo de' Fiori", passing just besidesthe characteristic Jewish District.

#THE APARTMENT is a refined work of the "Architectural Cristell & De Andreis", is on the 2nd floor of a building dating back to the end of XIX century and equipped with "elevator".The flat view overlooks the inner courtyard quiet and characterized by a typical old folk Roman style. On the ceiling, the original wooden beams are blended with a contemporary style of colors, light and a sophisticated 'magic of mirrors' making the space unique and bright. With an overall space of 38 square meters, the apartment has a well-equipped kitchen (a toaster, an electric kettle, coffee maker,microwave, etc) with dishwasher, a dining area, a large bedroom with LCD TV 32', a large double bed . A comfortable bathroom in deep colors embeds a shower fitting 2 persons and a warm-thowels. Lastly, the flat is equipped with Air Conditioning, Autonomous Heating and FREE WI-FI 24H. Comfortable and well equipped, the apartment surrounds your staying with a distinguished warm atmosphere!

#The best part is how accessible it is. You step out the door and you are at a tram/bus stop. So it’s easy to get everywhere. The bus/tram/metro system in Rome is great.. You can also get to the Metro and a regional train with either 2 stops on the bus or about a 10 minute walk!

Underground Station Piramide is in the nearby (200 mt). In SUMMER from this stop is easy to reach in 25 minutes the #sea of Rome'#(Ostia) with its beaches and seaside restaurants where you can enjoy your relax!

#TESTACCIO DISTRICT:

Testaccio is a much more local experience. A little away from the tourist area...the food is fabulous, the costs for things a good bit less and you get a little more of a feel of everyday life while easily being able to get everywhere else. There is every kind of shop you could possibly need within the neighboring blocks—butcher, wine, pasta, bakery, small supermarket, etc. and just a few blocks is Testaccio Market filled with all the charm and treats of Italy—-everything from shoes to vegetables, baked goods, etc. , and with internal small bars offering good 'expresso' as you relax enjoying the sun.

#THE PRICE INCLUDE: Final Cleaning, Municipality Taxes, Linen, Cotton Towels, Electricity, Heating, A/C, WIFI 24H

Why us? The owners put up to your disposal: maps of the city, some suggestions where to go within the neighborhood associating sights with nice and pleasant atmosphere; bathroom kits, sleepers and breakfast supplies: tea, coffee, jams and fruits.

THE BUSES lead us directly to: St. Peter's , Vatican Museum (Bus 23); Piazza Venezia, Piazza Navona Pantheon (Bus 30); Villa Borghese (Bus 3);

Parking lot 8€ per day.

Fabulous property/perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spotless and had everything one could need. The bed is very comfortable with nice linens and towels. The owner quickly responded to my questions before our arrival and was gratious and welcoming when we got there. They provided coffee, snacks, wine and wonderful desserts. The location is perfect as it is only a 3 minute walk to the metro which is needed after seeing the sights. It is very quiet and the local plaza is charming and all of the neighboring restaurants are wonderful. We highly recommend this lovely home and would stay there again if we get back to Rome. Thank you for helping us have a fabulous experience.

New Year in Rome

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great New Year at this apartment, perfect location with great access for public transport. Loads of places to eat in the area, not touristy, good quality and reasonably priced. The apartment itself was spotless and perfect for our requirements. Highly recommend.

Lovely Property close to public transportation

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well maintained. It had everything we could need for our stay. It was only 15 minute walk to train station and 5 minute to bus station. The property is in Testaccio and this is a wonderful neighborhood with local restaurants and bakeries and is not drowning in excessive tourists.

Great place, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

The flat is located in a great spot in an old, safe, neighborhood full of restaurants and a nearby "outdoor" market. Circus Maximus and the Colosseum are a reasonable walk away and Palatine Hill is visible from the road and a short walk to get to. Carlo and his wife are amazing hosts that are proud of their city; the flat is beautiful and has everything you need for a great stay; the bed is comfortable and everything is roomy and updated.

We took the train from Siena to Rome; arriving at the Termini station, then taking metro to the Piramide station and walking the short distance to the flat. Be sure to take the route right next to the Pyramid itself if you are walking (there are several branches of road meeting outside of the station).

There is a bus station just steps away from the flat and will whisk you off to wherever you want to go within 20 minutes. PS: I recommend taking the 280 over the 32 as they announce the upcoming stops and 32 doesn't!

We coud not have been more delighted or impressed! Perfecto!

  • 5 of 5

As a VRBO 5 star host (eighty four 5 star reviews for my property on a 5 star resort in the USA), I know what it entails to achieve such a rating. Casa Testaccio 2 and its owners have excelled in all aspects of such a system. The apartment is sooo pristine and tastefully designed and decorated. The concept of using mirrors to enhance and enrich the space was so well thought out and unique. It is clearly an up-scale design that captues the warmth and character, the new and the old, and all the beauty that is Rome. After an 11 hour flight, the hosts greeted us with such warmth and genuiness that all of our exhaustion was immediately abated. They made us feel that they would be available if we needed them further and that they genuinely cared about our stay in their home and in their neighborhood.

The location was perfect in that we could walk to most all the major sights and neighborhoods and yet were not in the middle of a bustling, congested tourist zone. We felt that being right on the outskirts of those areas gave us much more of the experiences and feel of a true Roman neighborhod. I thank our hosts for that; and I could not rate them more highly.

It takes 20 minutes to reach us by train (FR1) from Fiumicino airport to Stazione Ostiense and about half an hour using Ryan Air bus Shuttle from Ciampino airport using ryan air bus shuttle and 'B' line to Piramide railway station. Metro undergrounbd station “Piramide” is close by and as well by a walking distance is 'Eataly', a food chain specialized in the best Italian quality food products and cooking recipes of typical foods.

From mid-June to aerly September, walking up to Ponts Sublicio, live demonstration of Roman summers 'along the Tiber Roman

For the lovers of nightlife, via di Monte Testaccio (which rounds Monte deiCocci hill) offers several discos and 'movida' and on-fashion nightspots like Alibi, Radio Londra, Caffè Latino.

Besides the Pyramid of CaioCestio you can find another exceptional historical site: the Monumental Protestants Cemetery for Foreigners (mostly English). It dates back to 1716, with the tombstones written in several languages and often with characters engraved with the traits of hand-writing. The setting is all surrounded by centuries-old cypress trees scattered among tombstones of writers, painters, historians and artists.
