I live in the same building of the apartment, on the third floor and I am always happy to help guests for any eventuality. If you wish, you will feel like visiting family! :-) I know my town very well as my old family lives in Rome since Julius Cesar time. I studied classical studies (history and arts), and I have a licence in Political Sciences. I have been an official at the European Union Commission in Brussels, Belgium. Then I became a teacher specializing in language teacher training. I teach Italian and French to students and language teaching methods to language teachers. I have many years of experience in this field. I am happy to organize for my guests: - lessons (Italian & French for foreigners, cooking, painting, art); - guided tours in and outside Rome; - pick-up from/to airports, from/to Civitavecchia port. I speak French & English and I love Italian cooking and art.

Why mirella chose Rione V Ponte
The apartment is in the same building as my home, so I can help my guests on every eventuality. You'll feel at home and you'll live in Rome as Romans do. My family lives in this area since Julius Caesar's era. That's why I love and know very well my town. One of the most valued features of the apartment is its location in the historical center of Rome: it gets you away from the tourist crowds and right into a wonderful, Italian neighbourhood “Centro Storico”. Address: Via Banchi Vecchi. The apartment block is situated between the Vatican and Campo de’ Fiori, in the heart of historical and archaeological Rome. The location of the apartment makes it easy to get to all the places of interest (Piazza Navona, Castel S. Angelo, Colosseo… monuments and museums) either by walking or by taking the convenient bus lines. Well connected to all areas of Rome by public transportation (bus stops, taxi stands are easily accessible). The area is very safe.

It's located near everything we wanted to see, allowing us to walk everywhere! The apartment has everything needed to have a wonderful stay. Mirella has amassed a terrific variety of materials to keep you updated on everything you need while in Rome, including transportation, site-seeing, dining options, etc. Her personal recommendations were outstanding and made us feel like we had instant friends in Rome. We highly recommend this apartment and will definitely be back! Ciao!
