About the property

Perfectly Located Air- Conditioned 2 Bedroom Apartment Ideal For 2-6 Guests

The Avalon Rome is a completely renovated apartment in the center of Rome. With two beautifully decorated bedrooms, a large and comfortable living/dining room, and a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom, the Avalon is perfect for 2-6 guests.

The apartment’s location could not be more central for visiting the city of Rome. In one direction, a 5/10 minute walk will take you to the breathtaking Roman Forum and the Colosseum, as well as the Colle Oppio park (the hill where the Emperor Nero built his golden palace over 2000 years ago.) A 10 minute walk in the other direction will take you to the central train station, where trains leave by the hour for Florence, Venice, Naples and the Amalfi Coast. Two metro stops are also within a 10 minute walk of the Avalon: Line A will take you in a few minutes to the Spanish Steps with its incomparable shops, as well as to St. Peter’s Square and the Sistine Chapel. Only two stops on Line B will bring you to the majestic Circus Maximus, where in past millennia ancient Romans staged chariot races. Line B of the metro will also take you to the regular trains to Ostia, where in only thirty minutes you will arrive at the seaside to visit the ruins of Ostia Antica or have a leisurely seafood lunch on the beach.

Among the Avalon’s services are an English-speaking driver who can do not only simple airport transfers but can also take you on private day tours to places like Pompeii and Positano on the Amalfi Coast.

The Avalon Rome is a family operation, and our goal is to provide a true home away from home in what we believe is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. We look forward to hosting you.

About Salvatore Avallone

My husband is from Naples, Italy and I am from Washington, D.C. We have lived in Rome for the past fifteen years, and have two Italian/American children. We live by the Colosseum near The Avalon and adore this area of the city. We would love for our visitors to feel at home, to experience Italian lifestyle daily.

Salvatore Avallone purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Salvatore Avallone chose Colosseo Foro Romano (Coliseum & Roman Forum)

We bought the property at the beginning of this year and remodeled it thinking of what we appreciate when we travel: beauty, cleanliness, central location. On foot you can reach all of the important sites of Rome, from the Roman Forum to the churches of Santa Maria Maggiore and the Colosseum. We loved the idea of sharing with others the beauty of the landmarks of Rome and also the neighborhood spots that many tourists miss.

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with this apartment because it is perfectly located in the middle of a busy city, while at the same time peaceful. Because it is on an internal courtyard, it is a kind of quiet oasis. The decor of The Avalon brings together Italian beauty and American comfort.

Personal touch

  • 4 of 5

Great home base for a visit to Rome. There are grocery stores and many great restaurant options nearby as well as some very cute neighborhood shopping areas. The apartment has a kitchen stocked with the essentials, rooms and beds are comfortable and having access to laundry is a plus if you have been traveling a lot.

For seeing the sites of Rome, this apartment is within walking distance and Metro is easily accessible to branch out further. Salvatore went above and beyond taking care of us - setting up transportation (to and from the airport), making dinner reservations, giving us some great pointers.

So cool on a hot Roman day

  • 4 of 5

We loved this little apartment. It was perfect for us 3. Although it is an apartment on the inside of the apartment building, we never felt enclosed. It is bright and there are many lights. The apartment was clean and well stocked. We had everything we needed for cooking (although our meals weren't elaborate). The apartment was very quiet, the beds were ok. We were surprised how close the apartment was to many of the sights. Our host and the driver he had arranged for us were very helpful. But the best part of this apartment was how well the a/c worked. We visited in July when it was very hot. It was so nice to come back to such a cool place. We would stay here again.

Exceptional Apartment, Excellent Location, Superb Owners

  • 5 of 5

One of our favorite apartments we have ever stayed in! Beautiful, contemporary, and spotless. Beds are very comfortable. Kitchen is stocked well with cookware and dishes and it's always great to have a washing machine. Neighborhood is quiet, safe, and in an excellent area which is easily walkable to many sites. Metro is nearby and taxi stands only a couple blocks away. Sal, one of the owners, was beyond wonderful to work with before and during our vacation. He arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport and the driver gave information about the city on the drive. Sal met us at the apartment and gave us information about the city including many restaurants in the area. We ate in serveral that were outstanding. Sal even had a bottle of wine waiting for us which was very special. Unfortunately, my daughter and I were ill and needed to see a doctor. Sal arranged for us to see an English speaking doctor. My daughter and I got much needed rest because the apartment was so comfortable and felt like home. Sal was so kind to us throughout our vacation answering many, many questions and helping with our situation. I highly recommend the Avalon! Book it NOW!

Nice holiday in Rome

  • 4 of 5

We had a great holiday in Rome. It thundered, rained but also shone. Good food, great historical sights and nice people! The location of the apartment was very good. Still our step counter readings were daily 20 000 or more steps. The Avalon was our cozy and peaceful home between the long walks around the city. The beds were comfortable. The only thing we missed was a microwave oven but that was not a big problem. Everything went smoothly starting from the reservation of the apartment. Our hosts were friendly and caring. Thank you once more!

A Nice Place in a Great Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

A great home base for a week in Rome, the Avalon is a contemporary space in an older neighborhood building. Our family of four, two adults and two teenage daughters, were very comfortable. The kitchen has all of the essentials, the beds were very comfortable, the apartment is clean and well maintained and the wi-fi works well. We loved the neighborhood. Easy transportation hub to anywhere, but also a lots of great places to explore, shop and eat right outside the door. Sal is an enthusiastic and helpful host. We were especially pleased to be able to arrange airport transportation through Sal for our arrival. It was flawless and a much-welcomed help after a long trip. If you want to do day trips from Rome, the Termini station is nearby and the high-speed trains can have you in Florence in 90 minutes. Sal was easy to connect with, always responsive and a great host. Thank you Sal!

Great for the family!

  • 5 of 5

The Avalon was perfect for our family of four. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and Sal made everything run smoothly, which I greatly appreciated on my first trip to Italy. It was nice to get off a long transatlantic flight to find the driver waiting for us. Sal met us at the apartment, even though it was rather late at night, with recommendations for restaurants and other attractions. It was nice to have the kitchen and washing machine. I have no hesitation recommending the Avalon!!
