Turn off the busy via della Lungaretta with its shops and restaurants, onto a tiny, ancient vicolo, so typical of old Rome. At the end of this quiet and secluded little street, you'll come to planter boxes flanking the door of your own cozy home. You enter a comfortably furnished living room, with beamed ceilings and terra-cotta floors, complete with flat screen TV, air conditioning, phone and WiFi.To one side, an archway bordered in ancient bricks opens onto a small but fully-equipped kitchen with a washing machine.
And a mirrored door leads to a tiled bathroom with tub.
Step down the ancient terra cotta steps into a spacious bedroom, with its coved ceiling, ancient brick archway, queen-sized bed, mirrored wardrobe and writing desk. Silent and secluded, you'll enjoy the peace and tranquillity of your comfortable bed. Separate air-conditioners on each floor keep the apartment comfortable, even on the hottest days of a Roman summer.
You are steps away from one of the most gorgeous places in Rome, the Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, with its historic church and fountain. A few steps in the other direction leads you to buses, tram and a taxi stand, whisking you to anywhere in the city. For morning shopping, the colorful open-air market at Piazza San Cosimato, a short walk away, displays seasonal fruits and vegetables, cheese and other tempations.
And you are within walking distance of the Vatican, Campo de' Fiori, Piazza Navona, the Ghetto, Piazza Venezia, Largo Argentina and many other sites. Even the Colosseum and the Forum are just a comfortable stroll away. Trastevere, your neighborhood, is considered the most characteristic in the city, the hub of the city's best trattorie, loaded with interesting boutiques.
John Cabot University is only a ten minute walk away, and it's convenient to American University, the American Academy and other schools. The apartment has been a favorite of employees of FAO, which is a quick bus ride or easy walk away.
