Year Purchased: 1992
About the owner: I was born and raised here in Rome. In the late 1960's, my father was one of the founders of the American University of Rome (AUR), and, indeed, the apartment was the administrative office and classroom (and impromptu party space) for AUR over a number of years. So, the apartment has been in my family for over 40 years.
Although I now live near Washington, DC, where I am an economist, I come back to Rome as often as possible. Despite all my time here, Rome continues to be a fascinating city that always has more to offer. I hope you find the Eternal City as welcoming and wonderful as I do.
Why the Owner Chose Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps): This apartment has been in my family for more than 40 years, was completely remodeled and furnished in late 2010, and is now available for rental as a self-catering apartment. Upon booking, I will send you a detailed information package on the apartment, the neighborhood, restaurants, and sights. We offer complimentary airport arrival pick-up for our guests, and an English-speaking guest services manager will meet you at your arrival. Linens, welcome snacks and beverages, utilities, wifi, taxes, check-in/check-out, and end of stay cleaning are all included in the price. Additional car service or cleaning/linens can be arranged.
