La Dolce Vita house enjoys an exclusive position in the heart of Rome's old town, just in front of the magnificent Pantheon and within walking distance of many of the city's favorite attractions including Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps and the wonderful Trevi fountain. Housed on the first floor (only 15 steps) of a 16th century palazzo, this fully refurbished apartment can comfortably host up to four guests.
The apartment is 50 sqm has been recently renovated (April 2014) everything is new (toilet, bed, mattress, sofabed, armchairs, table, chairs, linens, dishes, appliances, air conditioning, etc).
The master bedroom with en-suite bathroom overlooks a quiet inner courtyard. From the 2 windows of the living room you can see the Pantheon.

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.
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.
You will not be disappointed! Great location. Lot of restaurants close by. We walked everywhere, Vatican City, Coliseum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps... The apartment is very spacious-much better than a hotel room. Plenty of room for my family of four. Luca is great. He was extremely helpful. He had someone pick us up at the airport and he was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived. The apartment is stocked with snacks, drinks, plenty of towels, soap, and a washer. We had a fantastic stay. Thank you, Luca!
We had a wonderful stay at this charming apartment in the heart of Rome! Luca was a fantastic host from the very first message to our personal sendoff. The apartment is within easy walking distance to everything that we wanted to visit. We walked to the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Vatican, Campo dei Fiori, the Coliseum and Trastevere. The apartment is on the first floor, so that is very convenient with luggage. We also used the car service that Luca arranged for transfers from the airport. The drivers were on time, easy to find and very helpful. I recommend using this place as an awesome central basecamp for your adventures in Rome.
You honestly won't be able to find a better located apartment in all of Rome. You are literally in the heart of the city and can walk almost anywhere in 10 mins or less. For longer distances, major bus stops are right around the corner.
Luca was easy to work with, set up drivers for our arrival and departure, and was there to greet us and send us off. The apartment was charming, well decorated, and clean. We were able to save some money by purchasing breakfast and lunch materials at the nearby supermarket.
Overall great experience and would recommend this apartment to anyone.
My wife and I recently spent a week in this lovely apartment and we agree with all of the previous positive comments. The location is pretty much unbeatable - yards from the Pantheon and everything right on the doorstep, yet quiet and peaceful when sleeping. The apartment is very comfortable and with all the facilities that we wanted. It was a pleasure to meet Luca who was very friendly and extremely helpful. We would hope to return and we can definitely recommend to anyone considering this apartment.
We stayed here for 10 days. The location is perfect. We were met at the airport as planned, and everything went according to plan and to our expectations. Luca was easy to contact and was very responsive. We'll be back!
We came to Rome for our first visit and could not have found a better spot. Luca was great in responses and left a list of great places to eat. The apartment is very secure with 3 doors to unlock to get in plus there's a safe! My husband loved the foam bed. For me it was a little firm. It was only two of us so it worked fine. The bathrooms entry is in the bedroom so with two couples, bathroom sharing could be an issue. Luca left breakfast items for us . The first morning we took a cool showers because we could not get hot water. I emailed Luca and we had hot water the rest of our time. The Wifi worked well. The apartment was on the first living level of the building so not too many stairs to climb at all. If I were going to go back to Rome, I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!
