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

Charming large apartment in great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this spacious apartment. We liked that there were two tables for eating, as well as a nice terrace where he had drinks every night! The kitchen was fully stocked, although no dish washer. The air conditioning was in both bedrooms and worked well. We especially liked that it had two full bathrooms and was a short walk to the Colosseum and public transportation. The major drawback was that the WiFi was not working for 2/3 nights we were there. The host did try to fix it, however it was a big inconvenience as we spent a lot of time on it. It did finally get fixed for the last night. Overall, we recommend the place!

Clean apartment, good host, and great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is within a 5 min walk from the colosseum. It has several coffee shops, restaurants, and bars nearby.

It is big enough for 6 adults.

Marmi, the owner, was very helpful in arranging for a taxi to/from airport and offering to help with tours. She was very prompt in responding to her emails and went as far as calling us (international call).

Fantastic stay in the Old City if Rome

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Casa Lillie. Marmi was the BEST hostess. Communication was Above average and she took such good Care of us. We loved staying within the old City walls and seeing the coliseum and Roman walls right outside our door was the best. She also arranged for drivers to pick us all up and return us to the train station. So convenient and wonderful. She arranged two tours for us with Maria Terese that were so educational and great. Maria Terese was the best guide we have Ever had on a tour. All in all it was a great experience.

FABULOUS stay in Rome

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience. This is our 3rd visit to Casa Lilli. Apartment located 6 blocks from the Colosseum. Restaurants are all around the apartment. All reasonable. All fantastic. There are alot of small family owened italian venues to eat. Highly recommend Luzzi, right down the block. Great food. Marmi, the owner of the building is so wonderful. She is there for your every need. If you need a great place to stay, within walking distance to all main attractions, this is the place.

Excellent location for touring Rome

  • 5 of 5

Quiet neighborhood, clean apartment. Beds were comfortable, coffee/espresso in the morning on the little terrace was lovely and being able to do a load of laundry kept our suitcase weight in check. Our host was VERY RESPONSIVE to every question we had during our stay; we really appreciated that!

Host arranged for us to be picked up at the airport and go on tour until the apartment was ready for check in. BEST IDEA EVER!!! Our tour guide was fantastic, we literally went all over Rome, were able to stop, get out and take photos and not worry about what to do with our luggage which was safely locked in the trunk of the car. The tour also helped us to decide what to go back and see in depth instead of wandering around and trying to figure out what to do in the limited time we had.

Overall a nice, CLEAN apartment and a great experience in Rome.

FYI - You are going up two short flights of steps into the apartment. This was not an issue for us.

Fantastic apartment in a wonderful (and safe) area just blocks from Coliseum

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults + 1 teen) had a fabulous stay at Casa Lilli. Perfect location with great restaurants, cafe's and Gelato nearby. Walkable to the big sites and very safe.

The apartment was super clean and comfortable and Marmi was waiting for us when we arrived. She also arranged for a car service to pick us up at airport (just a few Euro's more then a taxi) and it was wonderful as we were so jetlagged.

Marmi also arranged for us to do a big private tour all around Rome (with van + walking) and it was the highlight of our time there. Francesca (Marmi's daughter) was our guide and was professional, knowledgeable and just a very sweet person. Highly recommend splurging if you really want to see Rome the right way!

I would definitely stay there again. Thanks for everything Marmi + Francesca!
