Exclusive apartment in the heart of Rome just a stones throw away from the Coliseum, Roman Forum, Mouth of Truth, and all the major important historical sites.
The property is within walking distance to Piazza Navona, Fontana di Trevi, Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Campo dei Fiori and across the Tiber river to enchanting Trastevere, famous for its narrow streets and cozy restaurants.
The location simply could not be better as the area is one of the most famous and picturesque of the historical center, surrounded by archaeological sites, artisan and antique shops, theatres, traditional bakeries, colourful markets, designer stores, boutiques, restaurants, typical Italian cafes and winebars where you can flip away your tiredness over a good glass of wine.
Only a couple of blocks away, there is a colorful, large open market and every morning can be found fine food, fresh produce, fruit, vegetables, wine, cheese and wonderful bread.
The apartment has been newly renovated to offer elegance, comfort and convenience to the most desirable attractions of the city center.
The property is on the first floor of a 19th century historic building. After a day's sightseeing in the noise of a busy city, this is a great place to come home to. Walking through the main doors (off the street) into a lush garden full of trees and flowers, is such a pleasant surprise. Coming back here, in this oasis sheltered from the hustle and bustle, at the end of a long day gives you an instant sense of peace. The quiet found inside is unusual for this lively section of Rome. During the day, a security guard is present by the front gate. In addition to the gate (locked after dark), there are locked doors for both the complex and the apartment.
Fully renewed, it is tastefully furnished with fine modern fittings and the same remarkable equipment. Elegantly appointed with artistic and decorative features as beautiful pictures and mirrors, exclusive tapestries, cozy sofas, modern sliding doors, lamps, large wooden walk-in wardrobe.
The apartment has a very warm atmosphere. It has an entrance that leads to a bright living-room, a dining area with american kitchen, the bedroom, the bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. The sofa is a comfortable sofa-bed (King size, excellent quality), there is also a single bed. The kitchen has all modern fittings and it is fully equipped with all necessary cooking supplies.
The apartment has every comforts: air conditioned, autonomous heating, Satellite TV, flatscreen TV, FREE WIFI internet, washing machine, telephone, safety box, radio, iron/ironing board, hair dryer, Bed linen and blankets, bath towels and table linen provided.
Just a few meters from the property you'll find the famous mediaeval basilica church Santa Maria in Cosmedin (or de Schola Graeca). The church was built in the 6th century over the remains of the Templum Herculis Pompeiani in the Forum Boarium and Its bell tower is the tallest medieval belfry in Rome. In the porch of this mediaeval Church, on the south side, there is one of Rome's symbols, the so-called 'Bocca della Verita' Mouth of Truth that draws many visitors: this is a large round stone, with a grotesque face in relief with holes through the eyes and the nose, and a larger opening for the mouth.
While in Rome you may like to re-enact the scene in the film Roman Holiday and put your hand over the Bocca della Verità or Mouth of Truth which hangs in the portico of the Church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin.If a jealous lover wanted to test their partner’s fidelity, they would put their hand in the mouth of the stone river god - it was thought that a liar would have his hand bitten off but the faithful lover would go untouched.
And this 'test' is still a must for all tourists and the queue of visitors stretched right down the street, for to have their photo taken with their hand in the mouth of the statue.
It’s a fun thing to do though and everyone seemed to emerge with their arm intact - why not give it a try?

Italy is a country full of glittering treasures and Rome is its brightest jewels. I am delighted to be able to offer a comfortable and beautiful ambiance to my guests. Every amenity and comfort is well thought out and we make sure that the apartment is clean and in excellent condition at all times. I take pride in meeting the needs of my traveling friends while helping to make their stay in Rome a memorable one. It is important to me to put the needs and comfort of my guests first and I am honored to say that this is gratefully reflected back to me through referrals and returning guests. My apartment is truly a 'home away from home'.

Nice place in a great location
Very convenient location near to many good restaurants and a central bus stop. The pictures are accurate, the arrangement for pick at the airport happened exactly like you would hope.
It was a great location. Near lots of restaurants and close enough to all of the must see things in Rome. Comfortable beds an cute little apartment. Looks exactly like the picture!!
A Perfect Location for Sightseeing
My husband and I spent 5 nights in this apartment at the beginning of February. It was very convenient to all of the major attractions in Rome. A most unexpected plus was a very extensive bakery just 30 steps from the front gate. A cup of coffee 1 euro, and a large selection of pastries 1 euro each. Unbelievable! Regarding the apartment itself, we did not use the kitchen as we love to eat out, but it was stocked with all that you would need to cook meals. Wi-Fi was provided which was a big plus. There were only a couple of things that we would have liked to have been provided and they were washcloths for showering and a box of facial tissue. One thing that is important to know about this apartment (for handicap purposes) is that the front door is up about 5 steps.
I'll say the same things that so many others before me have said. The apartment is perfectly located on the south side of Rome. We could walk almost anywhere we wanted. The Circus Maximus was just 15 minutes away. There was a bus/tram stop one block away, which was so convenient to use, as the closest subway (Piramide) was a 12-minute walk, which isn't bad unless it's very cold. The apartment was perfectly stocked with cooking utensils, and the bed was very comfortable. I cannot say enough about how helpful Mrs. Alina was. The driver she arranged to pick us up at the airport was there waiting for us, even though our flight landed early and we breezed through Customs, and the driver she arranged to take us back to the airport on Christmas day also arrived at the apartment a few minutes early. It couldn't have been easier. Thank you so much! I highly recommend the Rec23 Restaurant next door (toward the river) for drinks and an appetizer buffet. They have it every night starting at 6:30, and it only costs 10 euros for an alcoholic beverage and the buffet. And the wait-staff was very friendly. When I'm in Rome again (as I most certainly will be) I'll stay at this property again!
Great Convenient location and everything you need in Testaccio
We had everything we needed in this apartment for our week in Rome. We got off to a good start with an introduction and walk-through by Alina, who was always available to us by text. There are markets, restaurants, parks and shops within an easy walking distance. I recommend Vera's apartment, which is on the first floor and on the courtyard, to any couple of small group who needs comfort and convenience. Coffee, tea, soaps and detergent were all provided, which was nice.
This was a beautiful apartment/perfect location
This apartment was lovely, it was light and airy and had all the amenities required. There was ample room for my husband, six year old son and myself.
The location of the apartment was private and quiet. The outlook into the courtyard was lovely too. It was walking distance to most attractions and there were plenty of really good local restaurants and shops nearby, a fabulous bakery downstairs and of course a couple of gelato shops. There were even a couple of parks close by for our son to play.
Vera, also arranged for us to picked up by a driver when we arrived in Rome which saved a lot of hassle. We would definitely stay in this apartment again and recommend it to anyone who is looking for somewhere quiet to come home to at the end of day and not too touristy.
