Trastevere is a picturesque medieval neighborhood located on the west bank of the Tiber. It is an ideal place for wandering around the narrow lanes and beautiful squares that still retain the authentic character of ancient Rome: low buildings with wooden roofs and terracotta walls in warm colors.
In the past Trastevere, named for its position ‘over the Tiber’, was populated with artisans, fishermen, merchants and a foreign community connected with the activities of the nearby port. Today it is considered one of the most enchanting /evocative areas of the eternal city. Visitors are charmed when walking, and losing themselves in the fascinating lanes and squares.
The place to start from is, without doubt, the heart of Trastevere, the piazza of Santa Maria in Trastevere. In front of the lovely fountain, there is the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere, the oldest church in the city, dating back to the 3rd century and dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Just around the corner, in the famous Vicolo del Piede, there is your apartment. Elegant and refined, it is situated on the second floor of a small, ancient building.
The apartment is equipped with every comfort, taking care of the smallest detail. Even though it is located in a lively neighborhood, it is in a quiet and tranquil position. The apartment consists of a sitting-room, with a dining area, furnished with a double sofa-bed and a pouf which can be transformed into a single bed. Near the sitting-room you will find a kitchen area, equipped with all the necessary utensils for the preparation of your meals. The bedroom has a double bed and a spacious wardrobe. The bathroom is comfortable with a large shower.
On request, a cot and a high-chair for our small guests can be provided. The apartment is fully air-conditioned. In addition to the apartment being exclusive, given its excellent central position, its distinctive feature is the splendid view in Vicolo del Piede, with a glimpse of the oldest church in the city. The area is full of good restaurants, pizzeria, supermarkets, grocery stores.
In addition 50 feet from the apartment, in Piazza San Cosimato, you will find an open fruit and vegetables market and just in front of the apartment, a very good characteristic restaurant, various bars and cafés. All the winding streets and alleys become animated, especially in the warmer months, when tables spill out onto the sidewalks and the streets and piazzas become a large meeting place or ‘salotto’.
The area is well-serviced by public transport going to the historical centre via the tramline No. 8. A ten-minute walk leads straight to Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navona and the entire centre. The Trastevere railway station is a few stops away via tram.
