About LUCA

I'm 44 year old and work in comunication and marketing department of public company.

Why LUCA chose Rome

One of the most desirable areas of Rome, this district is a maze of narrow streets and alleys dating from the Middle Ages. It is filled with churches and palaces built during the Renaissance and baroque eras, often with rare marble and other materials stripped from ancient Rome. The only way to explore it is on foot. Its heart is Piazza Navona, built over Emperor Domitian's stadium and bustling with sidewalk cafes, palazzi, street artists, musicians, and pickpockets. There are several hotels in the area and plenty of trattorie.

Rivaling Piazza Navona -- in general activity, the cafe scene, and nightlife -- is the area around the Pantheon, which remains from ancient Roman times and is surrounded by a district built much later (this 'pagan' temple was turned into a church and rescued, but the buildings that once surrounded it are long gone). Wandering through the Pantheon area you don't realize how close you are to so many of Rome's finest historical treasures. The reference point is the Piazza della Rotonda - the square in front of the Pantheon, which seems more like the Pantheon's courtyard. Approaching the Roman Pantheon from its rear you might not even look twice at its plain circular brick facade, not even a hint is given as to the spectacle that awaits within. It's only once you approach the front portico and its massive granite columns that the goose bumps set in...

Not 100m from the apartment, in Piazza di Pietra, you find the remains of the Temple of Hadrian. Originally built to honor the Emperor Hadrian and his son, the most visible remains are the front facade of 11 marble columns. The building is now home to the Rome stock exchange.

What makes this apartment unique

The Pantheon area is very central to most Rome tourist attractions, and right on the doorstep of the triangle of the favorite Rome areas - Piazza Navona, Campo de Fiori and Trastevere.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in this apartment and we would certainly hope to be back again in the future. The location would be hard to better (Pantheon a matter of yards way) yet there was no noise at nighttime to disturb sleep. The apartment is clean, comfortable and with plenty of the facilities you need (the air conditioning was particularly welcome in the heatwave we experienced this time). The owner, Luca, is charming, helpful and very easy to deal with

Great apartment in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in the center of everything. Luca met us on arrival and helped with transfer from the airport. You wil be 15 min walking from most everything you want to see with the colosseum around 25. The bedroom is dark and quiet. If you have someone sleeping on the sofa bed in the living room it can get noisy at night from the restaurants sometimes till 2:00 am. Give this apartment a try you will not be disappointed.

Awesome location by the Pantheon

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was really fantastic! Fabulous location, right around the corner from the Pantheon so that put us in the center of everything! It made it really easy to get around the city to see all the sights.

The owner Luca was wonderful too! He made us feel extremely welcome and comfortable. We would recommend staying with him again to anyone that asks!

good location in Pantheon / Navona area

  • 4 of 5

Luca was a very good host. He responded quickly to emails before we arrived and with texts when we were in Rome. The apartment met our needs well. It has a washing machine as well as a dishwasher, a comfortable bed AND a good shower. There is a super market close by, as well as restaurants, coffee shops and gelato! The bedroom is an interior room, so there was no street noise in there. The main room has street noise, but this was not a problem for us.

Luca arranged our transportation from the cruise port as well as to the airport for our departure. (The cost for these rides was comparable to others which I had checked.)

I suggest you personally try the apartment key while Luca is still with you, just to be sure you know how it works. I found it a little tricky at first.

Thanks Luca , for a comfortable and worry free stay in Rome .

Location fantastic and perfect for seeing the sites

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing week- from being met at the airport, arranged by Luca, to being taken back to the airport by Allesandro ( including a quick diversion to see the "keyhole") it couldn't have been better. It felt like staying in a friends apartment as you knew you that Luca was on the end of the phone if needed. Literally 2 minutes from the Pantheon, 3 minutes from Piazza Novona and less than a 30 minute walk to the colosseum, the attraction furthest from the apartment. Luca's recommendations for restaurants were also well worth visiting - we would particularly recommend the Osteria dell'Ingengno in Piazza di Pietra. Don't forget to visit Il gelato di San Crispino on the Piazza Della Maddelena right outside the apartment - fabulous natural ice cream.The apartment was ideal for the two of us and would certainly recommend it. Thank you Luca for a wonderful week in Rome. Ciao
