Property description

Located in Via dell'Orso, 28. 150 meters from Piazza Navona. VERY QUIET! Ideal for 2-3 couples + friends or a family with children + friends. 160 sq meters, 3 bedrooms, 3 ensuite bathrooms, a very large living room and a huge kitchen/dining room. Entirely renovated in 2012. Quiet, airy, bright (windows look south). In the heart of Rome, yet away from it all, thanks to its location on the first floor of a small building at the end of the large courtyard of this very private palace.
And you can sleep with your windows WIDE OPEN, no noise from the street!
WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT IT
Location, roominess, comfort, quiet, style, plenty of light. Here you are at the center of the center; after a full day visiting Rome, you do not feel like travelling to some distant neighborhood. Wherever you are, you'll enjoy a short walk back home to enjoy the quiet and comfort, to find it dry and cool during summer and warm and welcoming in winter. Relax watching TV in your language in every room, or listen to the radio while organizing your activities, checking your mail or talking over Skype to your beloved ones back home! Prepare your dinner at home, or enjoy traditional roman food in many nearby restaurants. You will find suggestions tin the apartment hat will help you stay away from tourist eateries.

PIAZZA NAVONA is one of the grandest piazzas in Rome, a triumph of baroque art, where Bernini and Borromini challenged each other with their formidable masterpieces. The fountain of the four rivers by Bernini faces the great church of St. Agnes, by Borromini. Nearby, in Corso Rinascimento, Borromini built one of the finest examples of Baroque, the magnificent church of St. Yves, inside the National Archives Palace. Don't miss it!

Piazza Navona is busy all day, except in the early morning, its best time.

VIA DELL'ORSO is a characteristic street of old medieval Rome, prior to the baroque period. It is a limited traffic street, very quiet, and yet very close to most visiting sites.

From there you can easily reach your destinations, all within walking distance: Piazza Navona (150 m), Pantheon (600 m), Trevi fountain (1 km, 10 min), Campo di Fiori (800 m), Saint Peter (2 km), Castel Sant'Angelo (800 m, 9), Spanish Steps (1 km), Tiberina Island (1.7), the Ghetto (1,2 km), Capitol (1.6 km, 20), Colosseo (2,1 km, 25), Ara Pacis (700 m).

TRANSPORT

Taxis to/from airport have fixed rate (7.00am-11.00pm); at night the rate is by the meter.

Private pick up service to/from airport to Orsetto (3 to 8 people) is in the range of € 50/75.

Train from the airport to Rome costs € 14/person.

Taxi from station to Orsetto costs about € 15.

For City transport, please check this web page in english: http://www.atac.roma.it/index.asp?lingua=ENG. It includes subway and buses. It may help you plan your stay in Rome.
