Our 2-bedroom fully restored, antique-furnished 2-bdrm. apartment is located in a 14th century Roman palazzo in the historic center of Rome. The 2-bedroom apartment sleeps four people. We can, however, accommodate a larger group by combining this apartment with our other Rome VRBO listing #136743.
The palazzo is one block from Piazza Navona, three blocks from Campo di Fiori market, four blocks to the Pantheon, fifteen minutes walk to the Spanish Steps or Trastevere, and twenty minutes to St. Peter's. There are numerous excellent restaurants, boutiques, antique shops, etc., as well as grocers in the area. See the New York Times articles on our apartment and the neighborhood at our website.
The apartment is centrally located, spacious (approx. 1600 sq. ft.) and has abundant light. The apartment has been fully restored and newly painted, and maintains antique coffered and beamed wood ceilings with gilt highlights and polished stained antique wood floors and doors, oriental rugs and Italian antique furniture. The apartment is fully equipped with all necessary linens, kitchen supplies and appliances (dishwashers, washing machines, DRYERS [rare in Italian apartments], telephones with answering machines, computer printers (bring your own laptop), cable TVs and stereo) and has a high speed internet connection. Although there is no elevator in the building, the apartment is located on the 'secondo piano' level, two floors above street level.
A thorough written guide to the apartment, its systems, the neighborhood and Rome generally, is provided all guests.

About the owner: My wife and I fell in love with Rome in 1983, when at the start of a seven-week European vacation my wife fell ill and was admitted to the womens' ward at a hospital in Rome. We knew no Italian and were petrified. However, we soon made many friends in the hospital. The warmth, generosity and love of life the Italians possessed - even in such a dismal situation as a hospital ward - were totally captivating to us and convinced us that this was our home away from home. We eventually continued our European tour, but came back to Rome continually through the years. In 1996, we decided we needed a place in Rome that we could return to several times a year. It took awhile to find a place that met our requirements: a central location, nice views and at least two bedrooms.
Why the Owner Chose Navona: We had a hard time finding a place that met our requirements: a central location, nice views and at least two bedrooms. We eventually took out an ad in a local English-language paper that led to a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment of 1,650 square feet. It was just the right size and located on a quiet street. It had remarkable character. A few years later, the adjoining apartment became available and we decided to purchase it also. We've enjoyed shopping for and furnishing the apartments with hand-picked antiques and luxurious furnishings.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: The neighborbood and apartment have immense character. The hand-coffered ceilings and original wooden floors add a sense of grandeur to the spacious, elegant rooms. The apartment is centrally located, which is ideal: One block from Piazza Navona, three blocks from Campo di Fiori market and four blocks from the Pantheon. There are numerous small, friendly pubs on our street, in addition to excellent restaurants, boutiques, antique shops, and grocers.
