Property description

The Roman Forum Palace***** is a small private building situated quite INSIDE the Heart of the 'Old' Historical Centre ('Monti' district').
The ancient palace was recently completely renovated.
The building is stragically located just a few steps far away the Imperial Roman Forum & Colosseum (less than #5 minutes .... of course, by WALK ;-)
On the same street, there is also a METRO-SUBWAY stop. It is very useful (considering a limited # of luggages to carry on) to reach the 'Termini' train station as the the FCO airport.
The neighbourhood is charming, filled with local shops, groceries, bakeries, 'vineries', 'Osteria' and restaurants.
Perfect.. if you want to feel like you live there !

Then, 'as a starter'....The day before the arrival, I will also provide you a list of suggestions with 'loco' restaurants, markets ....and more ;-)

Enjoying this cozy apartment and its great location 10/03/2013

VRBO Bear stayed here:


What a great apartment in Rome! We arrived after a long day of traveling to find fresh cannolis and wine awaiting our arrival. The owner, Alessio, was very helpful and arranged a car service for us ahead of time so we wouldn’t have to deal with taking a cab from the airport and locating the apartment ourselves. We were also sent a list of great restaurants to eat at which was super helpful. Being on our honeymoon, we very much enjoyed eating at all of the great restaurants Rome has to offer.

The apartment is in a great location, in a lively neighborhood with tons of restaurants and bars nearby. It is walking distance to almost every major attraction and is close to the Coliseum which was incredible. We only took a cab once our entire trip! There is a subway stop nearby if you don’t feel like taking a cab. We also liked having a convenient store close for toiletries and food.

The apartment is very clean and cozy with a nice comfortable king bed. We especially liked the cold AC and the kitchen. The kitchen had everything we needed including a coffee maker, plates, silverware and most importantly wine glasses and a wine opener! We opened the windows that lead to the street often and enjoyed hearing all of the hustle and bustle of the busy neighborhood but loved how quiet the room was when we closed the windows at night.

We also appreciated the free wifi which had a faster connection than any hotel we stayed in during our 2 week trip. We are very thankful to have stayed here and hope to return someday!
