About Marmi Fuentebella

Ciao Everybody,

My name is Maria Milagros, Marmi for short.

I came to Rome in 1979 and threw more than 3 coins in the Trevi Fountain. And so here i am since been 30 years now and Rome is as beautiful as it was the first time i came.

I understand perfectly the needs and wants of a visitor in Rome. Casa Lilli would be a perfect place for your stay. The conforts of a home in the tipical 'Dolce Vita' of the italian lifestyle.

I'm on Skype:

Marmi Fuentebella purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Marmi Fuentebella chose Rione XIX Celio

I chose the location to give our visitors the possibility to step out of the front door and walk straight to the Colosseum where the emperors once dominated the arena.

Nowadays the area is a fantastic location for locals and tourists to enjoy the exquisite local cuisine and the vibrant nightlife.

What makes this apartment unique

From the apartment one easily reaches the main ancient roman sites and other important monuments such as the Colosseumn the Roman Forum, the Basilica San Clemente, the Golden House of Nero.

Banks, groceries, restaurantes, pizzeria, pubs, laundromat, market, pharmacy and parks are all within walking distance from Casa Lilli.I chose the location to give our visitors the possibility to step out of the front door and walk straight to the Colosseum where the emperors once dominated the arena.

Subject: Re: Inquiry from Deirdre Walsh - Oct 3 to 8 - Listing #72116



Dear Marmi,

First of all let me apologise for the delay in writing to thank you. Just wanted to say that we really enjoyed our visit to rome. The apartment was in an exceptional location, well within easy reach of everything and the neighbourhood itself was really safe and very friendly. We found all we wanted right on our doorstep, including lovely restaurants and quirky little shops. We loved it. The terrace was a blessing, as we had unusually warm weather and made terrific use of the terrace for breakfast every day and lovely glass of wine to end the day. The apartment itself was very warm and welcoming and the accomodation spotlessly clean and comfortable. We would definately rent this apartment again and would highly recommend it. Should we return to Rome,(and we duly threw our three coins in the Trevi Fountain, to ensure it) we look forward to staying here again.

Many thanks for your warm hospitality and welcome bowl of fruit. It was greatly appreciated. Our time in Rome flew by and we hope to return very soon.

With best wishes, Deirdre, Gretta, Mary and Yvonne

Everything as promised

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 - parents with 2x teenagers really enjoyed our 5-night stay at CasaLilli. Greeted personally by Marmi who explained the workings of the apartment. The apartment was exactly as described. Apartment is in a lovely little neighbourhood 150m from the Colosseum. 400m to the Colosseum Metro station. Loved the fixed price (Euro 48) taxi cost from the airport Rome has introduced. Worked really well for us - though I appreciate there is a good feeling having.a driver waiting to meet you when you arrive in a city that some people will enjoy. Many nice restaurants near the doorstep. Good base for exploring Rome on foot.

nice and near

  • 4 of 5

the bnb has all the amenities one require... the Colloseum just a few steps away, surrounded by restaurants, with a grocery nearby and near the metro... everything a traveler needs....... just like most bnbs though, one has to haul your luggages in a flight of stairs...this was offset by the warm welcome and basket of fruits our host provided... would definitely recommend this place!

Good choice!

  • 5 of 5

Feel we made a great choice for a 5 day stay in Rome! The apartment was clean and had a comfortable sitting area, dining table, well furnished kitchen, two nice size bedrooms .... and two bathrooms....good for our party of 4 women. While one bathroom was a bit small, it was workable. With beautiful October weather, the highlight of the place was the patio outside the kitchen where we shared breakfast, late wine toasts, and recollected daily adventures.

(Also a washing machine on patio)

Good location! Quiet residential street close to the Colosseum ...beautifully lite up in the eve. A few blocks away was a grocery store, small inviting resturants and a pharmacy. Bus and taxi stop a short walk. Locked street entrance. Felt safe in the area.

Marmie responded quickly to questions we had and graciously offered to arrange for a van to pick us up from the train station and take us to the airport when we left Rome.

Would return to the apartment in a heartbeat if I am ever fortunate enough to return to Rome.

Perfect location and great family

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Casa Lilli for three days at the end of September and enjoyed the experience. Marmi was a good communicator through email, but was out of town for our stay. Her daughter Francesca welcomed us when we arrived and even gave us a nice bottle of wine.The apartment has everything you need for comfort and far outdoes any hotel room. The location is perfect for sightseeing and Marmi set up two days of tours for us with Maria Teresa, the best tour guide we could have asked for. Make sure you go to Naumachia for dinner and the gelato store on the corner.

GREAT Location!

  • 4 of 5

Right from the start we were warmly greeted by Marmi (her English is excellent). She showed us to the apartment and took us around each room. She even had a bottle of wine chilling for us as I had mentioned it was our 30th wedding anniversary trip. The apartment is large and had lots of room for the 3 of us (my mom came along on the trip with us). The A/C and Wifi were great and with the temps in Italy this year we were happy to have the A/C.

The location could not have been better. Within a very short walk we were at the Colosseum. This made for quick access at night to take it in under the stars and grab some night photos. The busses, trolley cars, taxis and Hop On,Hop Off busses were a short walk away as well. The apartment provided everything we needed and we were able to cook a couple of dinners ourselves when we just didn't feel like going out. The grocery store is another short walk and is open 24/7. There are LOTS of restaurants and gelaterias near by so you really never need to drive or take transportation to get anything you need. It was a wonderful way to end our trip to Italy.
