Property description

DISCOUNT 10% - Stay During May 1 - June 30, 2015 - Valid on new bookings!

This two-bedroom/one-bath Trastevere condominium features marble and granite floors, French doors, a European ceramic bathroom with a shower, and in-unit laundry facilities.
The building is a modern, elevator-equipped, mid-rise brick building with a panoramic view from the private balcony.
Located just a four minute walk from the Trastevere Train Station, within one block of the Rome public bus system, a three minute walk to the tram, and within walking distance of many of Rome's wonders including the Vatican which is about three miles away.
This bright and airy condominium has been completely renovated. It's clean, and comfortably furnished with modern accommodations and all amenities for up to three guests.
Within walking distance there is a daily, open-air market which offers fresh fruit, foods, and flowers along with local wares and crafts.The neighboring streets have a variety of stores, restaurants, and service-oriented businesses, as well as beautiful residences.
The condominium is just off of the main street of Viale Trastevere, on Trastevere about a three minute walk you can board the #8 electric tram and be at Piazza Sonnino in just five minutes or stay on until the end of the line at Largo Argentino after another three minutes travel. When you get off you will see the ruins of the theater steps on which the Emperor Cesar said 'Et Tu Brute' before he died. From there a short walk will take you to all the famous sites such as the Pantheon (stop just across the street at Taza D'Oro for what Katie Couric and I agree is the best coffee in the world), Piazza Navone (check out the movie 'Return to Me' to get a preview of what this area is like), The Trevi Fountain ( 'Three Coins in the Fountain'), The Spanish Steps ( 'Roman Holiday'), Campo de Fiori ( where you should spend an afternoon soaking up the atmosphere), and make sure to go window shopping on Via del Corso.
For a quick trip to Vatican City from the Trastevere Train Station you can board the FR3 or FR5 train and go one stop to the San Pietro Station. This is also not a bad walk if you walk along Viale Trastevere to the river and then follow it to Via Della Conciliazonione and enter into Piazza Di San Pietro. The train will be faster.
On Via Carlo Ponti, less than a two minute walk, the # 3 bus takes you to the Colosseum and all of Ancient Rome.
It is very easy to get around, by bus, tram, train, or taxi. There is a Taxi stand where cabs are always waiting at the Trastevere Train Station. One does not hail a taxi on the street in Rome, rather the taxis line up conveniently near all the major sites. All the sites mentioned are less than three and a half miles from the condominium. In fact over the years I think I have walked to all of them when I have taken friends to Rome.
The condominium is in a residential area that has many restaurants, grocery stores, shops, and interesting streets to meander down and buy anything you might need. Some of my guests say they found the best cappuccino on the cornerright outside and they felt the restaurants in the neighborhood had the best food and prices in Rome. There are bulletin boards in the hallway filled with recommendations and cards left by guests. They all comment on how wonderful it is to be able to do all the tourist sites and return to a real Roman neighborhood to relax afterward.
Porta Portese, Rome's largest and oldest Sunday market, offers an extravagant selection of treasures and necessities -- something for everyone!
The condo's Trastevere location is an ideal spot from which to discover Rome's beauty and colorful sites. One can savor the centuries of history in this vibrant Eternal City.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I have always enjoyed many different cultures across the globe in my travels. Living in the Trastevere area of Rome and having attended Marymount International School in the Montemario part of Rome, exposed me to the many facets of this International city. The advantage of having homes in Rome and Chicago has further allowed me to appreciate the adventures, the history, and the arts that each trip to Rome provides.

Why the Owner Chose Trastevere:
In 1998 an opportunity presented the chance to buy this property in the Trastevere area. I knew I would enjoy the convenient access to all the main historical sites as well as the sense of neighborhood that living in a residential area brings. The ease of taking the train directly from the Fumiccino (Leonardo Da Vinci) Airport to the Trastevere train station and walking the five minutes to the condominium makes one realize how unnecessary a private car is in Rome. Having the train, electric tram, buses and taxis so convenient I never feel the need for a car once I'm settled in Rome either.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Living most of the year in Chicago does make it favorable for North Americans to call and communicate with me because of the similar time zones while having dependable help in Rome allows me to assist my guests in ensuring their stay is comfortable and any problems that may occur can be taken care of quickly.
