About this listing
You'll find everything you need in the apt. (linen, towels etc.)The neighbourhood is very lively, with restaurants, wine bars, shops and a very nice market every morning .
Lovely flat In the heart of Pigneto with a large terrace overlooking the animated main street of Pigneto. The area is lovely. Obviously not very many places in Rome are immune from tourists, but certainly Pigneto feels more like a normal urban, genuine and true neighborhood than a tourist area. Artists, young people, gourmets come here every night to sit, talk in front of a good glass of wine. or listen to live music. In the morning the pedestrian area becomes a colourful market, where to buy fruit, vegetables, Roman specialties and handycraft.
The apt is very well equipped with fridge, freezer, electric oven, microwave, fans, air conditioning, heater, TV and DVD player, dishwasher and washing-machine. Sheets, blankets, duvets are furnished as well as dishes, cutlery and pots and everything necessary to cook and to eat. A roof terrace is available with a washing machine and space to hang the laundry.
It's the ideal place for a couple + 2 guests who really want to understand and visit the city and at the same time live in a trendy area mixed with the flavour of the old and authentic Rome.
In the terrace you can relax, enjoy your own "happy hour", the sun and fresh air and also take part of the "movida" without moving from home.
When the time comes to explore the city ancient center, you can take a tram (14 or 5) or bus 105 to reach Termini, or the 81 that takes you straight to Piazza Venezia. All public transport are at a 3 min. walking distance.
The number of guests cannot be more than 2 + 2 .
All the appliances are working perfectly: damages due to misuse must be refunded to the Host at the end of the stay.

Lodovica ne pouvait nous accueillir mais David l'a très gentiment fait malgré notre retard. Des informations sur Rome étaient disponibles dans l'appartement ce qui a été très utiles. les communications avec Lodovica ont été très faciles et rapides. Nous avons adoré l'appartement qui est très clair, bien équipé et avec une grande terrasse. Le quartier est très animé avec restaurants et bars. Il est un peu éloigné des quartiers touristiques mais très bien desservi par les transports en commun et tout peut aussi se faire à pied. Lodovica a répondu très rapidement à une demande d'information. Je n'hésiterais pas à recommander cet appartement.
Excellent accueil ponctuel par un ami de Ludovica . Appartement correspondant très exactement aux descriptifs jolie terrasse ! parking aisé et gratuit ,commerces de proximité nombreux ; bien desservi par les bus station a 100mètres a 15 minutes de Termini .Quartier en devenir spécial fêtards ,tardifs et bruyants . Malheureusement aussi un point de chute très important pour les misérables migrants Africains .
Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Woche in der Wohnung und in Rom, auch wenn wir an den ersten Tagen wetterbedingt die Terrasse nicht nutzen konnten. Die Wohnung ist bestens ausgestattet und hatte alles, was wir gebraucht haben. Die nähere Umgebung ist recht lebendig, und abends ist auch einiges los, aber nicht störend. Im EG ist ein exzellentes Restaurant und der Bäcker nebenan ist auch zu empfehlen.
Kommunikation mit Lodovica war sehr angenehm, Ankunft und Abreise hat alles super geklappt.
Von der Wohnung aus ist der Bahnhof Termini und die historischen Stätten gut und direkt zu erreichen, wenn man nicht mit der Metro sondern mit Bus oder Tram unterwegs ist, dauert es aber etwas länger.
It was a great time in Rome and the flat was very comfortable.
We loved the big terrace and the kitchen, with everything you need to cook.
When we arrived, the apt was very clean. Pierluigi waited for us and gave us the key, although he had to wait because our plane was late. He was very nice, showed us the rooms and gave us some advices.
It's not far away from Termini and with the tram it's easy to get to the center fast.
Pigneto is such a nice quarter of Rome. Nice people and less tourists, so you have an authentic view on the city with a lot of great bars and restaurants.
I would come back to this place, it was great.
Thanks to Lodovica and Pierluigi!
I met her big friend, Pierluigi, instead of Lodovica.
The Apartment was very comfortable, Spacious and clean to stay.
The kitchen was well equipped. Large refrigerator, many dishes, stove etc... I cooked some meals when I want to have at home.
The location was easy to get the Termini station and Historic area.
The flat and the tram(Bus) stop was close and easy to go there.
There was a small change in my schedule and Ludovico and Pierluigi rushed to get the apartment ready a day early, which was very kind of them. Pierluigi met me at the apartment and should me where everything was and how it worked.
OK ... the apartment. It is extremely spacious. There is a large 2nd floor outdoor terrace (primo piano in Italy) which was wonderful. Additional, up two flights of stairs was another private outdoor terrance. This was where the washing machine was located. The kitchen was more than adequate. Large refrigerator, freezer, stove, dishwasher, dishes and equipment etc. If you wanted to cook at home, there was plenty of grocery stores, butcher, cheese, fruit & veg etc. in the neighborhood. Bathroom fully functional ... I did turn up the water heat a bit and then had good showers. Bedroom was large, very adequate storage drawers and a good firm bed. The internet was excellent for the most part ... occasionally it would slow down a bit around 5PM. The building felt very safe and was quiet. If you wanted a little street noise just open the doors to the terrance. Heat and hot water worked (website hidden) worked, but other than the interest of watching a Game of Thrones episode in italian, I didn't use it. The is a DVD with 25 or so DVDs. Again, didn't use it.
The neighborhood was very lively. Probably a dozen places to eat/drink in short walking distance. The location was close to three of the cities tram lines (all at the same tram station about 150 yds from the apartment). These three (5,14,19) all stop two stops later at the Piazza Maggiore, which is the tram "hub" for the city. Those that take the effort to figure out the city public transportation system (trams, metro, bus) will appreciate this location.
I would suggest that anyone who is not comfortable in a very ethnically diverse neighborhood might feel a bit edgy. That being said, I never had a problem or felt uneasy in any way. Some italian language will help ... this is not a tourist area, but not imperative. Learn a few simple polite words and smile ... great communication!
I would return to this location.
Bonjour, nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans l'appartement de Lodovica, l'accueil de Pierluigi était excellent et vraiment sympathique. Nous sommes arrivés le dimanche et ce n'était pas un problème. Tout au long de la semaine précédente Lodovica a été parfaite car elle n'était pas là pour nous recevoir. Chaque explication fut très appréciable. L'appartement est dans un quartier d'artistes et culturel. Cela bouge énormément. Le bruit de la nuit est parfois intense mais n'empêche pas de dormir. Merci encore pour ce logement Lodovica et Rome est une ville splendide. Le logement est proche de tous les bus, tramway et de la Gare centrale. à bientôt rodolphe et wilfried

About the Host, Lodovica
Siamo due professionisti, io insegnante e mio marito medico chirurgo, appassionati di viagggi, arte, cultura. I miei figli vivono e lavorano da tempo a Berlino e negli Stati Uniti.. Mi piace incontrare persone diverse, arricchirmi delle loro esperienze di viaggio e aiutarle il più possibile a conoscere la mia città in tutti i suoi aspetti, culturale, umano, gastronomico.
Di solito chi viaggia programmandosi il suo viaggio su misura , senza organizzazioni di gruppo, è nelle migliori condizioni per potere capire e apprezzare una città come Palermo, così diversa, ma anche straordinaria.
