              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1984

              About the owner: I live in the same building where is the apartment I rent, on the third floor. Therefore I can help guests for any eventuality. With me just upstairs, you will feel visiting family. I know my town very well as my old family lives in Rome since Julius Cesar time. I made classical studies and I have a licence in Political Sciences. I have been an official at European Union Commission in Brussels, Belgium. Then I became a teacher specializing in language teacher training. I teach Italian and French (as a second language) to students and language teaching methods to language teachers. I have many years of experience in this field. I organize for my guests: - lessons (Italian & French for foreigners, cooking, painting, art); - guided tours in Rome and outside Rome; - pick-up from/to airports, from/to Civitavecchia port. I speak French & English and I love art.

              Why the Owner Chose Navona:
              The apartment is in the same building than my home, so I can help my guests on every eventuality. You'll feel at home and you'll live in Rome as Romans do. My family lives in this area since Julius Caesar's era. That's why I love and know very well my town. One of the most valued features of the apartment is its location in the old district of Rome: it gets you away from the tourist crowds and right into a wonderful, Italian neighbourhood “Centro Storico”. Address: Via Banchi Vecchi. The apartment block is situated between the Vatican and Campo de’ Fiori, in the heart of historical and archaeological Rome. The location of the apartment makes it easy to get to all the places of interest (Piazza Navona, Castel S. Angelo, Colosseo… monuments and museums) either by walking or by taking the convenient bus lines. Well connected to all areas of Rome by public transportation (bus stops, taxi stands are so accessible). The area is very safe.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Just around the corner: fashionable shops and characteristic eating places, supermarkets, groceries & bakeries, pharmacy, laundrette, art galleries, antique shops, bookstores, jeweller’s, Internet Point/Phone Center, banks with ATM machines, travel agencies, post office. A fascinating open air fresh food market is held every morning in the medieval Campo de' Fiori square nearby. On request : TAXI SERVICE with from/to the airport, from/to Civitavecchia Port. LESSONS (Italian and French for Foreigners, Italian Cuisine, Porcelain Painting, Watercolor). MEALS (We can prepare typical Italian meals) TOURS: Individually designed guided tours, tailored to meet individual tastes and requirements, can be arranged to show historical and artistic aspects of: ROME (walking tours or transport arranged with Mercedes passenger van)) OUTSIDE ROME (transport arranged with Mercedes passenger van)
