Colosseo Foro Romano (Coliseum & Roman Forum) apartment description

Whisk a loved one away on a romantic break and forget about the world you are leaving behind, enjoying instead the relaxation and romance with someone special in this cozy, clean, central apartment: easily you can reach by foot the main sites like the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Santa Maria Maggiore Church, Piazza Venezia, Fontana di Trevi, Pantheon, Campo di Fiori)
This romantic studio/apartment (perfect for an unforgettable honeymoon) is located near the Roman Forum and the Colosseum in the area called 'Monti', ancient neighborhood of the 'Suburra ' mentioned in historical sources, that still today maintains a popular and characteristic flavor.
Before we start the description of the apartment we would like draw your attention on our COOKING CLASSES/ CULTURAL EXPERIENCE that are organized in the country side near Rome. Feel free to ask additional information or visit www.dolceroma.it/cookingtour.htm
The apartment is on the second floor of a building of the 19th Century (with elevator and air conditioning) and it is composed of: bedroom (queen/king size bed) with a small balcony that looks out on a good sized garden. With the greenery and freshness of the garden, you would never guess that you are in the historic center of Rome. The bedroom is separated from the living room by means of a sliding door. The door has been painted with tromp l'oeil effect by the owner and when opened forms, together with the decoration on the walls of the living room, gives an unique illusion.
Going down three steps you enter the dining area and kitchen corner (refrigerator, microwave, electric stove, and everything needed for preparing your brakfast or light meals). The tiles in the kitchen as well as the dining tabletop have all been painted by hand by the owner, another example of the care that has gone into decorating this apartment. The dining area looks out on a typical Roman piazza, complete with a characteristic pizzeria with tables and umbrellas. The original wooden ceiling tiles has been restored, giving the warmth of wood to the entire environment. The bathroom is decorated with travertine tiles, and, though not very big, it is comfortable and includes: w.c., bidet, sink and shower.
This location is perfect for those who want to walk in the centre (easily you can reach by foot the main sites like the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Santa Maria Maggiore Church, Piazza Venezia, Fontana di Trevi, Pantheon, Campo di Fiori) or reach any other destination by public transportation. There is a bus stop (bus 117) close to the apartment that will take you in a few minutes in Spanish Steps or Piazza del Popolo (the trendy and famous fashion district) or use underground stop 'Cavour Line B' just at few steps from the apartment: in only one stop you will be able to reach the Central Station Termini and from there you can also easily reach Ancient Ostia and the seaside/beach front of Ostia Lido, where you can spend part of your day in summer season.
Cable TV with international news (BBC, CNN) movies in English (when the original languages is English) and DVD.
The owner offer free wire less internet service, so guests may bring their own laptop and be assured that they need not look for Internet cafes at odd hours to keep in touch with home. She provide a cell. phone (use of the phone is free, personal calls are not included) so that guests can very easily reach her at any time, should they have questions or concerns about the apartment or about Rome itself(free).
She worked for many years in the airline industry as a cabin attendant and she has excellent language skills, including English, but also a real understanding of just what travellers need when they’re renting a short-term apartment in a foreign city. At check in she or her husband will personally welcome you and spend time to guide you in programming your vacation, sharing with you all their knowledge. You will have the feeling to meet a personal guide, that help you at 360' in discovering this big city so full of history, and save so much time that normally takes to a person that is in town for the first time.
Transportation from and to the airport can be organized from Rome's Airports. Driver will be out side the custom (no problem if your flight is not on time and run late) with the sign with your name and will take you directly to the apartment.
We advise our guest to avoid bring heavy guide's book, we have anything you may need about Rome :Maps, tourist information, guides in english...

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: Natalia worked as a flight attendant (cabin crew) for Alitalia Airlines from 1970 to 1995. Prior to her work at Alitalia, she lived for more than a year in London, studying and working in a tourist agency. She speaks excellent English, understands and speaks Spanish and can 'get by' in French. The twenty-five years she spent traveling from one country to another gave her an opportunity to learn about the ways and customs of many countries and enhanced her natural predisposition for interpersonal relationships; she always succeeds in establishing an immediate, friendly relationship with her guests. Since 1995, she has attended the 'Academy of Decorative Arts', discovering a hidden talent for painting and decorating that she never imagined before. She now puts this talent to use personally decorating her apartments. In fact, the tiles in the kitchens and the tabletops in the dining areas of her apartments are all hand painted as well as the tromp l'oeil paintings, which gives each apartment a unique touch. In the last 4 years she has attended courses of the History of Roman Art, which allowed her to get to know the city on a new level. She provides her guests with useful information on Rome and its monuments and archaeological sites. Upon your arrival Natalia will make available, in addition to her knowledge and experience, a large number of tourist guides, brochures and maps of Rome so that you will immediately have Rome, as they say, 'in your hands.'

                  Why the Owner Chose Colosseo Foro Romano (Coliseum & Roman Forum):
                  The apartment is located next to the Roman Forum. The oldest and most important structures of the ancient city are located in the forum, including its ancient former royal residency the Regia and the surrounding complex of the Vestal virgins. The Old Republic had its formal Comitium there where the senate, as well as Republican government began. The forum served as a city square and central hub where the people of Rome gathered for justice, and faith. The forum was also the economic hub of the city and considered to be the center of the Republic and Empire.
