Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Enrique's apartment was in a great location - within a 15-25 minute walk to all the major sites! The apartment was very clean and comfortable and we absolutely LOVED having drinks on the terrace every night before dinner while listening to the musicians playing in the piazza below! It was perfect. Enrique was incredibly responsive and great to work with - he even arranged a driver to bring us to the airport (who I would HIGHLY recommend) for less than the price of a taxi! The only improvement I can think of is making the air conditioner stronger in the living room since it didn't cool the room down completely, but that's probably just because it was a 100 degrees in Rome while we were there. We would highly recommend the apartment and would definitely stay there again if we ever return to Rome!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our 5 day stay in this romantic apartment within walking distance to all the most visited sites in Roma. Wonderful host and safe neighborhood. There is a daily open market and restaurants with music in the plaza so this apartment has the sounds of urban living. The patio is fantastic and a real luxury for morning coffee and evening wine. Great shopping and a wonderful variety of places to grab and go or sit for dining. Loved our stay.

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for 5 days last year, and I have been remiss in writing a review. It was perfect in every way. The location was terrific; the terrace was wonderful; the apartment was spotless; the recommendations by owner were spot on and helpful. There was an elevator. It was one of the very best rentals we have ever had. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

A Great Place to Stay in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful apartment in a perfect location for touring Rome. We recently completed an 18 night stay and enjoyed ourselves tremendously (We actually had stayed here for 2 weeks last year as well). The apartment is well appointed and decorated with nice attention to detail. Enrique is a terrific host--he is extremely responsive to all requests and can also arrange for airport transportation which we definitely recommend. The hosts also provide a very helpful list of recommendations for services in the area. In addition to the restaurants on their list, we also would recommend 'La Fiaschetta' which is nearby with an elevated trattoria menu (salmon with a pistachio crust, filet de manzo(steak) and the spaghetti alla vongole were exceptional) and 'Barnum' which has a Greenwich Village coffee shop vibe for a great lunch or breakfast.

The apartment also has a terrace which is a beautiful spot for drinks overlooking Campo di Fiori.

There are some steps to access the flat so if that's an issue you may want to look elsewhere, otherwise we highly recommend this apartment and hope to stay here again if we return to Rome!

Magnifico

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th apartment rental in Rome over the years and by far and above the very best. The patience and quick responses from Enrique was very much appreciated. The apartment exceeded our expectations. We were somewhat apprehensive about the noise given the location. Noise was absolutely NOT a problem. We were able to sleep late and take afternoon naps. The apartment was extremely comfortable and had everything we needed plus more. The terrace was incredible and one could not find a better location. I guess the only problem/issue we had was leaving the apartment after two weeks; we wanted to stay much longer. Thanks again Enrique for everything. We cannot wait to return and stay for a long time! All the best to you and your family.

Amazing apartment directly on Campo De Fiore

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great deal of time researching apartments in this part of Rome and could not have been happier with our choice. Everything you need is within 75 yards and everything you could want is within 300 yards of this apartment. The owners couldn't have been nicer. They are truly interested in making your experience as enjoyable as possible. Because a market is set up and taken down in the Campo each day there is some noise but the apartment is four stories above the square so noise is mitigated. We didn't find noise to be an issue at all. There is a little restaurant a few doors down called Obica that has the best coffee we've ever had.

The apartment is situated literally in the square of Campo de' Fiori, the most historic fruit and vegetable market of the old city, overlooking the statue of Giordano Bruno, the famous philosopher, astronomer and writer, who, in 1600, was burned in the square for his views, considered as heretical by the Catholic Church. Campo de' Fiori and the adjacent Piazza Farnese are not only amongst the main sites to visit in the city; the square is also walking distance from all the principal sites in Rome, including the Vatican (1.8 km), the Colosseum and the imperial forums (1.7 km), the Appian way with its catacombs and Roman aqueducts (3km) the Pantheon (800m), the Spanish steps (1.6km) and Piazza del Popolo (2km), the shopping area around Via del Corso (1.3 km) and Piazza Navona (300m). The Campo de' Fiori neighborhood is also rich of bars and restaurants, amongst which we would recommend the Pizzerie Balestrari and Baffetto, the traditional Roman restaurant 'Er Galletto', the delicatessen Roscioli and the upscale restaurants Camponeschi and San Lorenzo. Finally, the apartment is 5 minutes walking distance across the Tiber river from the lively neighborhood Trastevere.

For guests considering a longer stay (4 or more days), we would recommend exploring also the surroundings of Rome. Rome is situated in the region of Lazio. Lazio boasts a number of natural and historical sites, ideal for day trips away from the bustling city. First and foremost, the ancient Roman villas in Tivoli - Villa Adriana, Villa Gregoriana and Villa d'Este. Second, the Castelli Romani (Albano, Grottaferrata, Marino, etc), i.e., green hills surrounding Rome where the aristocratic families of the 15th century had their summer palaces. Second, we would recommend Viterbo, the second largest town in Lazio, which was established during the Middle Ages. It was the principal residence of the Popes in the 14th and 15th centuries. Viterbo is famous for its Medieval art and its stunning Palace of the Popes (Palazzo dei Papi). Further afield, northern Lazio is characterized by its Etruscan towns, amongst which Cerveteri, Tarquinia and Tuscania, which feature Etruscan museums and ruins. For nature lovers we would recommend the beautiful lakes of volcanic origin, amongst which the lakes of Bracciano and Martignano. If you are travelling between May and October, it is also worth visiting the Tirrenean coast, rich of pleasant beaches. To the south of Rome we can recommend Circeo (where Homer’s epic the Odyssey had it that Ulysses met the sorceress Circe), Sabaudia, Terracina, Sperlonga and Gaeta; to the north Santa Marinella and Santa Severa leading up to the beautiful coast of Tuscany (Capalbio, Ansedonia, Argentario). Finally, from Rome you can easily visit other famous Italian cities such as Florence and Naples, which are only 1 1/2 hours away if you travel with the Eurostar trains (freccia argento and freccia rossa)
