Very close by there's Villa Lazzaroni, a public park where you can take a walk in the green!

You have access to wi-fi and all the things you find in a practical although minimal apartment to allow you a little but free space to live.
Interaction with guests
I am present directly or by phone. By mail I am also always reachable, to suggest or support You in your staying in Rome. I have also a good friend of mine available, when I am not.
Lovely neighborhood, very helpful.
The quarter is a residential one, but also a famous and frequented commercial area with shops on the main street Appia. A new shopping place is Happio, just in front of the house (where you can find Decathlon, and other Brands). Like many other roman quarters, it was a popular one (as Trastevere, Monti, Campo de' Fiori) therefore it has its own good Fresh Market! A good opportunity for people who love nature is to take a walk in the green areas very close by!
The quarter offers many bars and restaurants, two big parks, fresh market, shops and easy transport to all zones. See the map of the wishes to take a walk in the quarter I prepared for you! You may try all these delicatessen like Pizza slices (take away) at "Magna Pizza" via Appia 396,
nice atmosphere at Restaurant-bistrot "Mithos", taverna dell’Allegria, Piazza Scipione Ammirato 7; good quality/price at "Trattoria Ada e Mario", Circonvallazione Appia 81 (on friday Fish, every day good Pasta, green Side dishes, Cakes). In Spring and Summer a must is the Ice-cream at "Gelateria Petrini", Piazza dell'Alberone 16/a; and always "Pompi" (its Tiramisu cake is very renown!), via Albalonga 7b. There is the good Pub (very good tapas are served) "Hopificio" in via Cesare Baronio 2 many young people outside the place and no sign to recognize it and the restaurant "Hosteria del Sole" under the apartment.
As Furio Camillo is a residential and commercial quarter (but also a green area and ancient ruins if you explore the area through the park, after all), to see the Ancient and most Famous Rome you need to go to the center that is really close by metro A! The roman sites inside the Parks suggested to be visited during the daylight, when you can dive into both the Ancient Appia Archeological Park and the natural Park of Caffarella (on Sunday morning, seasonal excursions are organized) through which you can reach San Callisto, San Sebastiano, Santa Domitilla and others ancient sites. If you like walking you can reach also other sites on foot, either going from Appia street to Basilica S. John in Lateran and Holy stairs and to Colosseum, Caracalla's thermal baths (not active!), or via dei Fori Imperiali, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, piazza del Popolo, Spanish steps, Vatican city (but these last places are reachable very fast by metro A). Also San Lorenzo (University area) or Pigneto quarter are reachable either on foot or by public transport. Meanwhile walking on Appia street, you can take a look to the boutiques of the area, trying a good cake or a piece of pizza!
The best way to go to the Center is by Metro A Furio Camillo, just under the apartment. You reach in few minutes the center (direction Battistini): Barberini square and Trevi Fountain (10 min), Spanish steps (15 min) Popolo square, Vatican city- S. Peter Church (20 min) but also University Tor Vergata and Ciampino airport (direction Anagnina). You go to Colosseum, Monti quarter, University city (La Sapienza, Roma2) taking metro B in Termini station or tram 3 in San Giovanni.

Artist (painting, installations).
I love Art, Travel, Happyness. I love hosting people travelling and visiting my city! In vacation, during this time away from the usual home it happens to wonder! mind and heart are open!
I am curious about places, culture, art and about food I like trying tipical plates.
In Rome I wouldn't miss the tipical "tonnarelli cacio e pepe" (pasta with cheese and pepper) "matriciana" (pasta with tomato sauce, bacon, onion, hot pepper) "carciofi alla romana" (artichoke)!!!
