Residenza La Scala Holiday House is located in the heart of the historic district of Trastevere on the 3rd (top) floor of a characteristic building dating back to 1800, which overlooks the church of Santa Maria della Scala and Via della Scala, and takes you straight to Santa Maria in Trastevere. It is the apartment of your dreams: bright with a panoramic view (from here you can see Monte Mario and the rooftops of Rome), your very own "room with a view" over the City. It's no coincidence that Woody Allen filmed here his movie "to Rome with Love", dedicated to the eternal city and love. La Scala consists of a large living room with kitchenette, double bedroom, loft with double bed and bathroom for a total of 60 sqm. The kitchen has a gas hob, oven, microwave, fridge, extractor fan and all
utensils for cooking. The decor is traditional and tasteful, with wooden roof beams and terracotta flooring. The neighborhood is brimming with restaurants, bars, pubs and many of the artisan and historic shops (jewelers, antique dealers, etc..). With a 15-minute walk through Via della Lungara you can get to St. Peter; if you cross Ponte Sisto in 10 minutes you find yourself in Campo de 'Fiori and Piazza Navona. Viale Trastevere is only 5 minutes away, here you can take number 8 tram to get to Piazza Venezia and Via del Corso (2 stops); if you take the opposite direction you find yourself at Trastevere station, where you can easily take the train to Fiumicino Airport. Walking down via Garibaldi from the apartment you get to the Gianicolo where you will be rewarded with the most beautiful view of Rome from the top. From there you can walk on to Villa Pamphili, the "lungs of the city", where you can do sports or spend time with your children. Only 3 minutes away from the apartment you will find Piazza Trilussa, a meeting place for people and street artists, as well as the Tiber River where the "Roman Summer" takes place: music, shows, restaurants, games and stalls on the banks of the river. If you love the fun and the sounds of the city then you are at the center of the Roman nightlife. The neighborhood offers all the services: taxi cabs at Piazza Belli (5 min), pharmacy, laundry, Guardia Medica (doctor on call) for tourists, only 5 minutes away. I hope you'll let yourselves be carried away by the color and veracity of the people of Trastevere.
It is important to use good manners with your neighbors. In particular, if you leave early in the morning or come back very late at night, please be quiet on the stairs. Similarly, please tone down the music inside the house, limit the use of the washing machine and control the noise in general, especially at night. It is very important to use central heating efficiently: it works very fast and the flat is warm in about 30 minutes, so if you go out for a long time or during the night, it is preferable to turn it off. arrival after 8pm 10€ extra.
**E' importante il rispetto delle buone maniere nei confronti dei vicini. in particolare se uscite presto al mattino o rincasate molto tardi è importante che non facciate confusione per le scale. All'interno dell'appartamento allo stesso modo moderate l'uso della musica, della lavatrice ed i rumori in genere soprattutto nelle ore notturne. E’ importantissimo regolare l'uso dei riscaldamenti: sono molto veloci ed in circa 30 minuti la casa è calda perciò se uscite e state fuori a lungo o durante le ore notturne è preferibile spegnerli. arrivo dopo le 20 10€ extra.
Great Apartment. Great location and Thanks Fabrizio for letting us stay for the day on Sunday! A much needed nap before our late flight home!
We had a wonderful time here. The location is incredible in a very quaint and easily accessible part of Trastevere. The place itself is utterly charming with enormous windows from the bedrooms onto a piazza. A Roman friend was thrilled to be able to see the apartment as he said he'd noticed the beautiful windows on the square many times. Fabrizio was very friendly and attentive - though much more so after we arrived than prior.
Some things to be aware of - The two bedrooms are essentially both in one very high ceiling-ed room, basically a very large loft above the main bedroom on steep, almost ladder-like stairs which might be difficult for some people. Not complete privacy, but not a problem for us at all. It feels pretty separate. The neighborhood is NOISY late at night due to lots of nightlife, so if you are a light nighttime sleeper, bring earplugs. And we were there in winter with all windows closed.
All in all we loved it there. It's very homey and has tremendous character.
We very much enjoyed our stay at this older but charming bohemian attic apartment. And we particularly liked to breakfast or to pick-nick at its kitchen counter, to hear the people speaking and laughing in the street, or to look through its two big windows to the Santa Maria Della Scala and to the Vatican Hill. The apartment is located in a lively but quiet neighbourhood of Trastevere and therefore in walking distance to many main sights and attractions. And Fabrizio is an adorable and most helpful host.
Our stay was delighful, as was Fabrizio, our host. The apartment, at the third floor of a Trastevere walk-up, is very comfortable and beautifully located. The bedroom has beautiful windows on Piazza della Scala and beyond. Only caveat is the noise coming up from the streets. Trastevere is notoriously vivacious at night, and the mornings start early with the municipal clean up crew. You pay a small price to be at the heart of Trastevere.
Fabrizio is very kind, he welcomed us very well.
The appartment is very cool, but very noisy. The area is charming and typical, perfect for eat, drink, meet people.
we recommend fabrizio and his appartment!
We went to Roma for a couple of days and had a very nice stay at fabrizio's place. We were only 2 persons but the apartment can easily accommodate 3 to 4 thanks to the second bed in the mezzanine room . His apartment is well located in a short walking distance to the vatican and in a very charming place close to many restaurants and bars. The view from the bedroom is very beautiful and the room is bright . It can get quite noisy at nights from the outside activities but it did not bother us that much . Fabrizio was there to welcome us the 1st night and we appreciated it. I recommend you to go there!
The apartment is very spacious and nicely decorated with everything you would need for an extended stay. Our host was very helpful and friendly. The location is right in the middle of the fun of Trastevere, and this makes it a great spot to stay, but also, if you do not keep to Italian hours, it can be a bit noisy at night. I am a light sleeper, but luckily I always travel with earplugs and I was fine. My Husband is a heavy sleeper and he was fine. The great location and beautiful large apartment outweighs the late noise. We would definitely stay there again if we had the chance!
