Best points

The apartment has been completely renovated in June 2007, is very quiet and nevertheless located in the central and lively quarter “Appio – San Giovanni”. Just outside the building there are shops, restaurants, cinemas, supermarkets and all kind of services.

The flat is very conveniently located since underground line A stop ‘Colli albani' is just a stone’s throw and in 4 stops or 20 minutes’ walking along the commercial street Via Appia you reach San Giovanni Basilica. The historical center is also reachable by underground and the journey up to Piazza di Spagna takes about 15 minutes. San Pietro (Vatican city) is also directly connected by underground line A (the journey takes approximately 20 minutes).

The main railway station Termini is connected by underground line A and the journey is about 10 minutes. In addition, the flat is located at about 800 mts. from the railway station Tuscolana (exit Via Tuscolana and then turn left) which has continuous express connections to Fiumicino/Leonardo da Vinci airport (the ticket price is 5.50 € - journey about 30 minutes).Along Via Appia and Via Tuscolana there are also direct bus connections to the historical city center and other areas of the city.

The flat is also located at a walking distance (about 15 minutes) from the beautiful Caffarella/Appia Antica natural park: a huge natural park where you will find sheep and horses (just in the heart of the city!) and also vestiges from ancient periods. Bikes’ rental is also possible. For more details click on the link below and consider that ‘Valle della Caffarella’ is the nearest part of the park to the flat.

The building was built in the fifties and renovated forty years later, it consists of six storys, topped by a rooftop terrace. Many of the families who bought in the 50s still reside there, an indication to the stability and safety of the area. Some of the surrounding buildings are of the same vintage. Gandolfo Flat is on ground floor.

A fresh market, open daily in the morning, is at only 50 mts. from the flat.

About Riccardo Gianello

I'm an fitness instructor. Kitesurfing is my thing, in particular, wave riding. Knees getting a bit old for too much jumping so my passion is for some down the line wave ride. I now live in Rome, trying to combine running my work with sneaking off for a sail or a surf. When not staring at a computer screen or sailing I can be found in my fitness center.

Riccardo Gianello purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Riccardo Gianello chose Rome

This house was my home before I change for bigger one. I love this house for her position and light.

Very convenient quiet location. Spacious and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this apartment. It is only a five minute walk to the metro stop, which is only about 10 minutes from termini. The market right out the door is quite convenient. There is a full kitchen, complete with an oven. The apartment is very quiet at night. We slept great. We are looking forward to coming back a third time.

Very clean and spacious apartment, very nicely decorated, air conditioned, and very accessible to the metro. There is a daily farmers' market across the street, except Sunday. The apt is on street level,but noise was not a problem and it is a secure building and apt. We could only find d a few restaurants, but there are lots of pizzerias and small cafes. Daniella was very helpful. We would highly recommend this apt to friends.
