About LUCA

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

Why LUCA chose Centro Storico

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.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

A perfect spot to spend 3 days in Rome. Luca was a great host. He set up a ride to the airport for us a well. We loved our driver Alessandro! Literally steps from restaurants and the Pantheon. We would return to the same location.

Great apartment in Central Rome

  • 5 of 5

The location is excellent for so many of Rome's popular sites. We either walked or took short taxi rides for all our touring. That convenience allowed quick trips back to the apartment to rest our feet and re-energize. Luca provides many staples for breakfast and the supermarket within the same block provides many other food choices. There is great selection of restaurants in the area. We also enjoyed the street musicians playing in the early evening. We took advantage of the offer to arrange private ride service from/to the airport. The express train might be marginally cheaper, but the convenience of door to door service was great. I would highly recommend this apartment for a stay in central Rome.

Perfect for walking all around the city!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and comfortable. So close to many places we wanted to go. Very vibrant part of Rome. You can see the Pantheon from the window. Luca was very helpful with having a driver meet us at the airport. Thank you for having a water and a few food items for us when we arrived. Would stay here again on our next trip

Thank you for also helping us on our return a few weeks later at your other apartment. Ciao!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

What a treat for my husband and I to be able to walk to all of the key sites from this comfortable and quiet apartment. Yes the Pantheon and Navona Square are close by, but we also hoofed it to the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum and the Vatican. Coming back "home" was a treat with a most comfortable bed and a kitchen stocked with breakfast items. I loved opening the windows and listening to the activity below (especially the music played at a local restaurant). For a delicious meal, Grano is a stone's throw away as is a cafe with good coffee and croissants. Luca is very responsive. We so appreciated the ride to the airport that he arranged for us. We loved Rome and our stay at this apartment.

Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a 5 day stay at Luca's apartment just steps from the Pantheon- literally steps. We would sit in the afternoon after touring most of the morning/afternoon and listen to the street musicians play their violins and we really felt like we were in Italy!! Luca arranged our transport from the airport to apartment and then again when we were leaving for the port - same driver, very professional. We would definitely stay here again.

Book this perfectly located apartment if you get the chance!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Luca's Rome apartment for the three nights of our Italy trip and could not have been more satisfied. You can litterally see the Pantheon from the window and is probably less than a 75 yard walk from the front door. You are also surrounded by a vibrant dining and shopping scene is also steps away. The air condition worked perfectly which was very much appreciated given all the walking you do in Rome. Luca was always very responsive and helped in any way he could. For example, he put us in touch with a friend to review places in Florence (it didn't work out for scheduling reasons) and made an early morning taxi reservation for us to get us to the Vatican by 7:30 a.m. which was a lifesaver (in Rome you just don't hail a cab on the street but have to go to where they are located). This was our first trip to Italy and chose this location based on all the positive reviews. They were not wrong and I'm glad to be able to offer my high recommendation for both the apartment and Luca.
