Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps) apartment description
Italy Perfect Winner of Trip Advisor-FlipKey's Award of Excellence 2011, 2012, 2013. Travel & Leisure Magazine Italy All-Star 2013.
The Lombardia apartment is in a very central location just above the Spanish Steps area. Enjoy a comfortable and nicely appointed apartment with a very good layout for two couples or families.

Located between the Spanish Steps and Via Veneto areas this is a stately area with many sidewalk cafes, restaurants and easy walking distance to many of the sites. Most convenient is the Metro (subway entrance) at the top of the Via Veneto. The Metro will whisk you off to places such as the Coliseum, the Vatican and the train station.
It is 10 minute walk to the Spanish Steps, which is your gateway to fashion shopping near Via del Corso and many excellent restaurants. Beyond are the Trevi fountain, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, and the Campo dei Fiori areas.
The Borghese Gardens, one of Rome's largest public parks, is just three blocks away so if you want to stroll, jog, or bicycle, it is very convenient. And if you have children, this is a great place to take them. Two of Rome's most famous museums, the Villa Borghese and Villa Giulia, are just a few minutes walk from the apartment.
Stroll down the Via Veneto past myriad cafes, to Piazza Barberini and its Triton fountain.
We enjoy staying in this area since the 'livin is easy': subway nearby, two good supermarkets within a 5-minute walk, several good cafes for our morning cappuccino, handy newsagent of buying bus tickets, several favorite restaurants, the always beautiful walk along the Via Veneto down to Piazza Barberini, long strolls through the Borghese Gardens, and several 5-star hotels in the area so taxis are readily available. Just the right balance of city life, amenities, good food and park access.
The Lombardia apartment is located in a stately 18th century building. Massive wooden doors lead into to the building lobby which connects two banks of buildings via a corridor. The Lombardia apartment is in the back building, accessed through the second elevator.
The apartment has been freshly updated with modern amenities, comfortable, tasteful decor. A small entry greets you with hooks for your coat. To the left is the living room with queen size sofa bed, two armchairs and a desk. Step up to the dining area which has a glass door opening out to the service porch with the laundry facilities are located. To the right of the dining room is the kitchen.
To the opposite side of the entry area are the two bedrooms. The twin bedded room is to the right with two twins beds. The bathroom with enclosed shower is opposite, just across the hall. Straight ahead is the master bedroom and bathroom. Master bathroom has bath tub with shower sprayer. The layout works well since the master bedroom has a small private hallway which can be closed off for privacy to access the master bathroom. Both bedrooms have ample closet space.
Each of the windows in the apartment, living room, dining room, both bedrooms overlook internal courtyards, the views are not noteworthy, but this position in the building is a major bonus since the noise of the busy streets of Rome will not reach you here. This comfortable, pleasant and well maintained apartment is a very pleasant retreat from the bustling city center.

The location was great.Guest comment entered by owner
The location was great.
Our stay at the apt. Lomardia was wonderful. The location was great. We found it easy to get around and were easy to walk to many areas, such as the Trevi fountain and Spanish Steps. The bus stops were with a 5 min. walk and the metro station was probably a 15 min. walk. Restaurants in the immediate area were great. We never walked further than 15 min. and found many wonderful places to eat. There was a minor repair item when we arrived, which was fixed within a couple of hours of our call to the greeter. I would definitely rent through this agency again.

Great apartmentGuest comment entered by owner
We had a fantastic time in Rome. The location was perfect for us with lots of restaurants and shopping in the area. About 10- 15 minute walk to the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain. The flat was well appointed and very comfortable. I would stay here again.

Great LocationGuest comment entered by owner
We just returned from a lovely stay in Rome at the Lombardia apartment. The location was excellent - close to the Metro station, grocery store, restaurants, and shopping and VERY, VERY QUIET. We were all comfortable in the apartment (2 adults, 2 teenagers, and 1 child). We had a late arrival into Rome and used Italy Perfect's recommended driver, Stefano Grey. Pickup went smoothly and Rene, our greeter, got us off to a great start with his recommendations and introduction to the apartment amenities. We usually stay at hotels and rely on the concierge for recommendations, but with Italy Perfect, we'll never have to do that again for future trips to Italy.

The apartment was terrific!
We are back from our holiday in Italy and Europe and I just wanted to say that the apartment was terrific!!! We could not have asked for a better place to stay or a better location. We walked everywhere from there. Thank you very much for having this type of place available for people. We will recommend your properties to everyone we know and will definitely consider one of them again on our next trip. Thank you once again and all the best.

The accommodation was excellent. It was in a fantastic location close to the Spanish Steps and Via Vento which was perfect. We loved all the restaurants and facilities close by and the paperwork received prior to arriving was most appreciated. We would definetely recommend Italy Perfect to our friends. I have already referred 2 people so far and would utilise the services of Italy Perfect again. Thanks Judi and Mark

Nice rental in a great locationGuest comment entered by owner
Nice rental in a great location
Overall, accommodations were fine. The location is perfect with an easy walk to most places, and a short hike to both the Spanish steps and Barbarini metro stops. There are many excellent shops and restaurants, easily walkable, and the stroll down Via Veneto is lovely. An excellent nearby restaurant was Ristorante Tullio. The market recommended in the literature we received, 5 minutes walk, was very adequate for breakfast food and would be fine if one wanted to cook in. The apartment itself is designed for four. We knew that it would be a bit cramped for five adults (using sleeper sofa) but went for it because of the location. I would not recommend it for five adults, though the two bathrooms were quite nice. Furnishings were a blend of regular furniture and Ikea, a bit unfortunate. Though, I can understand how the owners would not want valuable furniture in a rental apartment, a step up from Ikea would have been nice. Kitchen, washer, were all easy to use, plenty of heat, water pressure, and hot water. Internet wi-fi was great. No complaints there. Good security and elevator that opened right at the apartment's door. So all in all, the place was a nice rental in a great location. I would definitely recommend it for a couple with two children. I would also highly recommend Context travel; their walking tours in Rome were excellent.

We loved our apartment in Rome.
We loved our apartment in Rome. The neighborhood was great and within close walking distance to many sites. Our concierge [greeter] was very gracious and gave us great recommendations. We tried most of the recommended restaurants and they all receive a 2 thumbs up! I would definitely recommend Italy Perfect to friends and hopefully we'll return soon.

Magnificent RomeGuest comment entered by owner
The Lombardia apartment was wonderful! The furnishings and appointments were as pictured on the website. The Lombardia apartment provides a wonderful central location for many of the magnificent sites of Rome, like Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon, etc., we even found that walking to the Coliseum and or Vatican City was not that difficult. Transportation around the city by bus, subway or taxi is pretty easy and reasonable. Shopping in the area was truly enjoyable with so many little shops and cafes along the side streets and higher end stores located along Via Vittorio Veneto. Just outside the apartment is a wonderful little restaurant with great food, reasonable prices and a staff that truly appreciates your business. If you're interested in cooking, there is a local market only a few blocks away with a nice variety of meats, vegetables, cheese and wine. If you're thinking of visiting Rome, we highly recommend Italy Perfect and the Lombardia apartment.
