Apartment is located in a quiet residential area just outside the center of Rome. The neighborhood contains banks, street markets, supermarkets, newsstands, boutiques, pharmacies, laundromats, post office, bars, restaurants,etc all within 1 or 2 blocks distance. There is a bicycle, jogging path that borders the river directly in front of the apartment and has children's playgrounds included. Transportation to the city center is very efficient and accessible by public bus or Metro just 20 minutes distance. One of the best preserved and extensive catacombs in Rome is just several blocks distant. There are many excellent restaurants, trattorias and Pizzerias in the neighborhood that serve authentic Roman cuisine at reasonable prices. For those wishing to prepare their own meals there are several street markets, supermarkets, fruit and vegetable stands, butchers and bakeries within 2 blocks from the apartment. The area, Monte Sacro, was, until after World War II, the seat of many Villa owned by wealthy Romans. In the 1950's it the city expanded greatly and much of Monte Sacro was developed for housing the growth in population. It's proximity to the city center has made it a very desirable residential neighborhood in Rome. Typical of most large cities, this type of neighborhood contains all the amenities that one could possibly want or need. The apartment is particularly well situated since the street on which it is located borders the Aniene river that flows into the Tiber as it slowly meanders through the northeast part of Rome.
The city has built a bicycle-jogging path along this river that extends several miles. along this path there are many parks benches, playgrounds and other amenities that afford opportunities for residents to be able to access outdoor activity in the center of a bustling city neighborhood.
Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: Many years ago my oldest daughter married an Italian living in Rome. Since that time, my wife, Jean, and I have made an annual trip to Rome and Italy to visit her and her growing family. After some years and two growing grandchildren, it became obvious that we needed to have our own place when we came to visit. Hence, a search for a convenient and comfortable apartment for use during our visits. Luckily we found such a place in the same neighborhood where my daughter and family resided. Since that time, we have rented this apartment to tourists during the time that we are not occupying the premises. My daughter acts as our agent in Rome and is prepared to offer her services and knowledge of the city to renters if needed. We have traveled extensively throughout Italy and Europe and consider Rome to be our second home. We try to express our enthusiasm for the city and the country to our prospective renters in hopes that they too will we able to experience the incredible wealth of art, history and culture that the city offers.
Why the Owner Chose Via Veneto:
Besides wanting to find an apartment in the same neighborhood as my daughter's area of Rome, we wanted a place that was residential in nature, quiet, safe and if possible, family oriented. At the same time, we wanted it to be accessible to the center of Rome where one could easily explore the many wonders of the eternal city yet experience, first-hand, the Roman way of life. The apartment is a mere 20 minutes by public transportation from the very center of Rome. This transportation is very reliable, convenient and accessible. There are many amenities in close proximity to the apartment. Restaurants, Trattorias, bars, shops,street markets, supermarkets, banks, post office, department stores, pharmacies, etc, etc. that help one to enjoy Roman life to the fullest. Also, the apartment is located just one block from the new terminal servicing the city's direct rail line to and from Rome's International airport. This is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Rome and the residents are mainly upper middle-class in stature.
