Trastevere apartment description
Turn off the busy via della Lungaretta with its shops and restaurants, onto a tiny, ancient vicolo, so typical of old Rome. At the end of this quiet and secluded little street, you'll come to planter boxes flanking the door of your own cozy home. You enter a comfortably furnished living room, with beamed ceilings, complete with air conditioning, phone and WiFi.To one side, an archway bordered in ancient bricks opens onto a small but fully-equipped kitchen with a washing machine.
And a mirrored door leads to a tiled bathroom with tub.
Step down the ancient terra cotta steps into a spacious bedroom, with its coved ceiling, queen-sized bed, mirrored armadio and writing desk. Separate air-conditioners on each floor keep the apartment comfortable, even on the hottest days of a Roman summer.
You are steps away from one of the most gorgeous places in Rome, the Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, with its historic church and fountain. A few steps in the other direction leads you to buses, tram and a taxi stand, whisking you to anywhere in the city. And you are within walking distance of Campo de' Fiori, Piazza Navona, the Ghetto, Piazza Venezia, Largo Argentina and many other sites. Even the Colosseum and the Forum are just a comfortable stroll away. Trastevere, your neighborhood, is considered the most characteristic in the city, the hub of the city's best trattorie, loaded with interesting boutiques.
John Cabot University is only a ten minute walk away, and it's convenient to American University, the American Academy and other schools. The apartment has been a favorite of employees of FAO, which is a quick bus ride or easy walk away.

My wife and I had a wonderful time staying in the heart of Trastevere at this apartment. We didn't spend too much time in the place as there are so many sites to see, but the location is amazing. The neighborhood is very vibrant, full of tourists in the day and locals at night. You can't get much closer to the main piazza, and tons of great food in the neighborhood. Joie recommended a restaurant that we ended up eating at twice at, and I found a love for cacio e pepe. Wifi was easy to use. The humidifier was super loud, but we turned that off at night to sleep. I hope to return to Rome for another visit soon, and we'd definitely stay here again.

This apartment was charming indeed! The apartment is tucked away on a quiet dead end street, right in the heart of Trastevere. We were greeted upon arrival with a welcome basket containing wine, snacks and lots of tips on where to find things in the neighbourhood.

Owner response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. It was a pleasure meeting you!
The apartment is fine for 2 and adequately equipped, but would be a bit of a squeeze for 4 adults. Location is excellent - we walked everywhere, even to the Vatican. Many passers-by found the vicolo picturesque and stopped to take a photo or even to paint. TV was not operational on arrival and not fixed in the week we were there. Would stay here again. Good value for money.

Owner response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and I certainly enjoyed having you! I provide videos but not a TV hook up because I find that most guests don't want to watch TV - especially not Italian TV - and I would have to raise the rates a bit to provide Satellite TV which is costly. Thanks for the feedback. All the best, Joie
Wonderful vacation hideaway
Wonderful vacation hideaway
In all honesty, I would have to rate our stay in this charming apartment in Trastevere as excellent. Although it was quite small in comparison to the other residences we have stayed at, it had everything. It was a little jewel. The owner left lots of goodies for us, among which were maps of the city, places to visit and just about everything that a visitor would need to know. We were actually in the heart and true pulse of Rome and yet the apartment was tucked away far enough not to hear outside noise. We would absolutely recommend this property to anyone who wants to live a few days, weeks or months as a native Roman.

About the owner: I am the editor and webmaster, complete online guide to what's happening in Rome, with more than 100 webpages updated weekly. I am also the author of six published books, and spent 27 years as a writer and editor in of the L.A. Weekly and L.A. Style magazine in Los Angeles.
Why the Owner Chose Trastevere:
I bought this apartment as a pied a terre for myself, and I loved living there! When I decided to make Rome my full time home, I decided to keep the Trastevere apartment and rent it out, while moving to a somewhat larger place just outside the historic center.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
I loved living in history. The building is at least 500 years old. It's in a fantastic location. Everywhere you walk you are treading on the middle ages! And some of Rome's best shops and restaurants are just outside your door. It's a great location from which to explore all of Rome.
