Car: Not Necessary
This wonderful apartment is located in the very heart of old Rome, perfectly nestled between three of its most renowned locations: Campo de' Fiori, the Jewish Ghetto, and Piazza Navona. It is also at very short walking distance from the Pantheon and the Roman Forum.
These rightfully famous central districts have a very different character, like in a kaleidoscope: the area of Piazza Navona encircles the elegant square, endowed with three marvellous fountains and the Church of St. Agnes, and it is a favourite spot for the 'Dolce Vita' atmosphere. Its chic and cozy at the same time, and a meeting venue for artists. Campo de' Fiori is Rome's most vivacious area, and it changes aspect around the clock. In the morning you find the famous veg market and grocery shops, at night it has an irresistible bohemian flavour. The Jewish Ghetto is a world apart. There dwells the most ancient Jewish community of Europe, and where you find the only authentic Romans since more than 2000 years. It is fashinating, and all its shops, cafes, restaurants are characteristic for some reason. You also find the main Jewish Synagogue, Rome's Jewish Museum.
The Pantheon is the best preserved ancient Roman monument, it is like a time capsule. The Roman Forum needs no presentation, it is an open air museum.
The apartment takes the higher floor of the historical Costaguti palace, which faces the square with one of Rome's jewels: the world-acclaimed, wonderful Fontana delle Tartarughe, or Turtle Fountains (1581), attracting visitors from the world over - you will be able to see it from your windows at all times.
Nearby you also find all Rome's sights: churches, monuments, squares, fountains, places of interest, historical landmarks, stately palaces, parks, museums... and let's not forget the countless numberless restaurants, cafes, bars, shops of artisans, artists' clubs, cinemas, and theatres, suiting all tastes and wallets.
You will be able to reach easily all these sights on foot, and if you don't feel like walking, there is a taxi stand nearby. Public transport is also well organized, simple, and cost-effective.
You will also enjoy the neighborhood near the palace. You find many family-run grocery stores (each special in it own way), bakers, confectioneries ('pasticcerie'), an array of restaurants with a varied cuisine, art and book shops, craftsmen shops. People in the area are very friendly, and you will immediately feel part of the community.
To conclude, the apartment couldn't be more quintessential Roman.
