                      Car: Not Necessary

                      This property is located just at the entrance of the Parco di Traiano which is facing the Colosseum. The archeological area of Rome is all walking distance. The centre of Rome (piazza Navona, Fontana di Trevi, Spanish steps) is also reachable walking (from 15 to 35 minutes) or by direct city bus or direct metro line in just a few stops.

                      Via Mecenate is located in a safe and quiet area but there are plenty of bars, pubs and restaurants at a walking distance of 5 minutes walking toward the Colosseum or in the direction of the basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore and Via Merulana.

When my twins, Teo & Leo, were born in 1996, I was one of the first in Rome to start this activity of renting apartments to tourists through internet. I did not want to work the full day in an office, I wanted to take care of my children and at the same time be related with people from all the world and practice my 5 languages.

The area is elegant and not too busy. There is a nice park facing the Colosseum at 20 meters of the entrance of the apartment. The apartment is very quiet.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Private terrace for the apartment on the fifth floor, good central location, nice building, nice area in proximity to a park, well decorated ,comfortable and quiet apartment, Buses, metro, restaurants, shops at walking distance. Very good relation quality/price!
