About Alexandra

I started this vacation apartment rental business more than ten years ago just for fun. Today I manage several properties, the majority of which are in the heart of Rome. My flats for rent are, with no exception, in pristine conditions. I visit all of them on a regular basis, to ensure my guests will receive the highest level of hospitality and the attention to every single detail. I am proud to say that I always strive to personally answer to all the emails I receive from future and past customers and take every question or request very seriously. I look forward to seeing you here in Rome, the Eternal City.

Alexandra purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Alexandra chose San Giovanni (St. John Lateran)

Because it is a unique place in Rome: full of charme and in the very hart of the old Rome.

What makes this apartment unique

The flat has been completely renovated in 2016. The furniture is moderm and and pleasant. This charming and cosy apartment is located in the most exclusive Rome historical centre, in front of the San Clemente Basilica and 300 m from Colosseum.

A special holiday

The apartment is unique. Lot of light and great views. It is located on the two last floors of a beautiful building and it is probably newly refurbished.

Thanks Alessandra

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

As an american family in our Italian trip we spent our nights in December at the La Torretta. We really enjoyed the apartment because of

a) its location within the city centre, which made it easy for us to get to the main cultural sites and museums. When we didn't walk we easily got the tube at the Colosseum station which made transfers faster.

b) its furniture, which was brand new; and its view on the S. Clemente's church facade, which is just what an american is looking for in good old Italy. (we liked WI-FI as well, which isn't to be taken for granted in other places)

c) Alessandra's hospitality and availability, which made things much easier for us in terms of city-wide information and cab bookings.

We really enjoyed our stay. Do consider this apartment if you happen to drop by Rome.
