A very nice ground-floor apartment (approx 100sqm) situated in a quiet pedestrian zone in the heart of Trastevere, one of the most ancient and characteristic zones of Rome.
Trastevere was, above all, a popular district inhabited by artisans and small traders attracted by the proximity of the docks on the south of Tiber Island.
Trastevere has never lost its popular character; poets who celebrated Rome in the local dialect have always found a response there.
All along the noisy Viale di Trastevere, the side streets are packed with stalls and coster’s barrows beneath the benign watch of Madonnas lit up by small lanterns.
On summer evenings the quiet squares are transformed by happy family groups eating out in the open air; a charming aspect of the Roman way of life.
Turning down into Lungotevere, you can see the remains of Ponte Rotto (Broken Bridge), all that remains of the first stone bridge to span the river. Built between 179 and 142 BC, it collapsed at the end of the 16th century. Further down is Ponte Fabricio, which crosses to Isola Tiberina. Built in 62 BC, it is the only classical bridge to remain intact without help from the restorers. As for the island, it’s a calm respite from the city centre proper, its originally a 10th century church of San Bartolomeo worth a peep on the way across the river to Trastevere, especially if you’re into modern sculpture – Padre Martini, a well-known local sculptor, used to live on the island, and the church holds some wonderful examples of his elegant, semi-abstract religious pieces.
From Termini Station, take the Bus Line H towards Dei Capasso for 6 stops (Sonnino/S. Gallicano), then walk for 5 minutes.

Very convenient location-- in the heart of Trastevere. Loved the neighborhood and the restaurants nearby. Marco's colleague Hassan let us into the apartment and showed us around. He was very very helpful and kind for giving us essential information!
The apartment itself is pretty nice-- beds are comfortable and the main (bigger) bathroom was very clean. The TV is AWESOME.
The smaller bathroom had some smell (not sure where it's from--but just old bathroom smell). And the apartment in general has cigarette smell everywhere-- we tried to air it out but didn't really work. I'd suggest this apartment to only those who don't mind the smoking environment. The kitchen utensils are quite old but pretty much everything is there.
