Aventino Testaccio apartment description

In the quiet, central and green residential area of San Saba - Porta Ardeatina, near the majestic Aurelian walls, this 68 sq. m. (732 sq. ft.) apartment is on the second floor of a charming villa built in the 1930s, surrounded by a scented garden of orange trees.
If you are looking for a peaceful residence in the heart of the archaeology, history, art and ‘Great Beauty’ of Rome, “Villino Rosso” is the ideal place to stay. Far from the traffic, hustle and bustle of some areas of the city, the newly renovated apartment (June 2014) is bright, comfortable and decorated with pieces of period furniture. It is a convenient starting place to explore the many attractions of the eternal city and a cosy place to relax after sightseeing.
The 68 sq. m. (732 sq. ft.) apartment has just undergone renovation (finished June 2014) and can accommodate up to 6 guests. It is made up of:
- 1 master bedroom with a continental king size bed (160 cm × 200 cm, 63 in × 79 in)
- 1 bedroom with a continental double bed (140 cm × 200 cm, 55 in × 79 in)

The house has new thermal and sound insulating windows.

Many attractions are easily reached on foot: the Baths of Caracalla (11 mins), the Aventine Hill (12 mins), the Circus Maximus (13 mins), the Colosseum (20 mins), the Forum (25 mins). Nearby are the lively and characteristic areas of Testaccio and Ostiense that offer a great number of restaurants, pizzerias, taverns, ice cream shops, markets, shops and clubs. At 9 mins from the apartment (through the underground pedestrian passage of Ostiense train station) is Eataly (www.eataly.it/blog/negozi-italia-roma/), a 17.000 sq. m. space offering the best in Italian wines and food. Not only can you buy top quality products, but you can also eat in one of the several thematic and gourmet restaurants.
At 200m from the house is a café and a small bakery selling sandwiches, bread, biscuits and all that you need for breakfast. In viale Giotto (5 mins on foot) there is a supermarket which also has fruit, vegetables, meat, fresh bread, meat and a deli.

Finally, on Thursday and Saturday morning in piazza Nicoloso da Recco, a small square 20m from the apartment, you will find a truck selling local fruit and vegetables from the Roman countryside.
