Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I'm working at Rome Fish Market, which is quite big and it's split in 2 different areas, inside and outside. I work inside.

Why the Owner Chose Quartiere XIII Aurelio, Roma, Italy:
I love this area of is central to everything, yet retains a neighborhood feel. We love walking out the door and being steps away from bakeries, restaurants, museums, and great shopping. Rome is a great walking city, and my apartment provides easy access to so much of it. I also love this area because of its history and diversity...from the elegant Gianocolo to Borgo delis to St. Peter's. Everyone can feel at home in Rome.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Some of my favorite things to do revolve around cooking and eating! I love being just across the street from shops, wine shops, markets, etc., and within easy walking distance to other historic markets. I also love that a short walk takes us to and across the Tiber, to Piazza Navona and Campo de Fiori, and never get tired of window shopping along via Cola di Rienzo, or walking till Piazza del Popolo. Our other favorite past time is exploring Rome various neighborhoods. The fact that we're so close to the historical center facilitates my 'expeditions.' As in other cities, it is the neighborhoods away from the tourist areas that give one a great perspective on the city and its people and the best food at the best prices are found in the neighborhoods!
