Why Palma Virginia Perrone chose San Giovanni (St. John Lateran)

It's the house, bought by my grandfather in 1930, where my mum was born and where I spent my childhood with my loved family.

ROME Central charming large apartment up to 6, close St. Giovanni Basilic Square
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

It was a lovely apartment in a central neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was nice and the bedrooms were exactly as described. We had a one off with one of the bathrooms needing to be repaired so we only had access to 1 bathroom instead of two. The 6 of us made it work. The kitchen was nice and had a large table for everyone to be able to eat at. There wasn't much of a common area, so we made the kitchen our common space. The apartment is very close to an open market and lots of local eats :) Palma was very helpful with recommendations and stays in good contact. Overall, if their were 2 working bathrooms, we would stay again :)
