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 Rome

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

great family Apartment in quiet neighborhood close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in this apartment. Just steps from some of the best Gelato and resturants in town. AIr conditioning worked great. This apartment was so close to everything, yet a quiet and safe neighborhood! The host arranged a kid friendly tour of the Colosseum and area. Very nice people who spoke great English. they made us feel right at home when we arrived.

Great apartment in the heart of Rome

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay and Marme was a great host, helping to arrange transport to and from the airport as well as a private Vatican tour. This is a spacious apartment with all needed

amenities in a totally safe neighborhood a few blocks from the Coliseum.

Nice place, great location

  • 5 of 5

I took my daughter and husband here on their first trip to Italy and it had everything we needed -- the air conditioning was a must (it was so hot out), the two rooms were perfect and it even had a pleasant little patio where we spent evenings and mornings.

The location is a short walk to the Colosseum and the Colosseum metro station, making it easy to get to other parts of the city by public transportation (if there's not a strike). It was also easy to find good restaurants, coffee bars, gelato places and and groceries nearby. Also, Marmi was wonderful to deal with -- so responsive and friendly. I'd highly recommend this apartment.

My family of 4 enjoyed staying at CasaLilli. June 25-July 2nd.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is on the second floor so there are some steps not too bad.(no elevator) it's very spacious and clean. It's was very hot in Rome and having air conditioning was great. The kitchen was nice and the balcony had a washing machine and a place to hang your clothes. Also there was a table and chairs on the balcony. There is 2 bathrooms one being larger than the other but great to have 2. In the living room there was s TV with a few English channels. The bedrooms were large. One of the rooms had twin beds and the other had a queen bed. The best thing about the apartment was the location. Right outside the door a few feet is a gelato store, so good!! Around the corner is where we got coffee every morning with Mario( I believe it was named the Twin Brothers). Also there was a 24 hr supermarket several streets over heading to the Colosseum. The neighborhood has so many restaurants to choose from it was great. Also in the neighborhood is one of the oldest churches from the 4th century. Basilica of St Clements. This is a must you have to see. There is a small price but if you look this church up you will understand. There is a taxi stand down the str. When you come out turn left walk all the way down street you will pass police station when you get to the main road you turn right and there are the taxis as well as the beautiful Colosseum across the street. If you walk to the right of the Colosseum you will find the Metro. If you continue walking straight pass the metro you will find a beautiful walk pass the Roman Forum and beautiful buildings that will lead you to the Piazza Venezia. We walked all over the area it's the only way to see Rome. It's very safe even late at night. CasaLilli is the best place to stay while in Rome. Working with Marmi and her daughter Francesca was so amazing. Francesca met us at the apartment and went over everything with us and she bought flowers and fresh cherries for our arrival. She is so sweet. For 60 euro they can arrange pick up from the airport with a personal driver. The only way to go. The driver was waiting for us at the exit with a paper held up with our name on it. We also arranged to be taken to the airport as well. One of the reasons our week was so wonderful was having a wonderful place to stay. Loved CasaLilli!!!!!

Perfect location and stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed staying at this property. It is located in the Celio neighborhood so we were within walking distance of all the sites we wanted to see. Mari was wonderful. She greeted us upon arrival and gave us a walking tour of the local neighborhood so that we knew where the best restaurants were as well as the bank, local farmers market, best gelato, etc. Her daughter led us on a wonderful tour of ancient Rome.

We can to say enough good things about our stay here and look forward to coming back in the future.
