See you there!
From the shadows of the ancient, winding streets of the historic center you suddenly come upon the breathtaking magnificence of Piazza Navona, born as a place of spectacle and still today a spectacular open air show; an architectural miracle in the heart of the Eternal City, filled with masterpieces in perfect harmony with each other.
This piazza, which displays the genius of Bernini and Borromini, is one of the finest Baroque Masterpiece in papal Rome. Its harmony and colors, combined with its elegance, give it a charm that is enhanced by the surprising contrast of architecturally sober houses alternating with a number of monumental Buildings.
Of all Rome's piazzas, this isola pedonale (pedestrian precinct) is one where the liveliness of Roman life is most tangible. It has long been a meeting place for the inhabitants of Rome. In past, in addition to the market, processions and spectacles where held here - included "naumachiae", or mock naval battles.
Today life in the piazza revolves around the open-air-cafés and the seasonal fairs. Of these the most popular is the one held in December and early January where toys and crib figures are sold. Its theme if the Feast of Epiphany as well as Christmas, so la Befana (the Epiphany witch, who his roughly the Italian equivalent of Father Christmas) features prominently. In the summer the piazza provides a continous festival of painters, caricaturists, fortune-teller and buskers, who entertain visitors until the small hours.

The house is perfect! Topspot in Rome, Wifi and Airconditioning. All you need! We walked out the first night and after two corners we walked straight into the Pantheon. Wonderful.
Daniele is a very professional host. He owns an AirBNB-hosting business. It's all well arranged, but don't expect any warm private welcome (the origin of airbnb). His employee Alberto was a very kind and welcoming host for us, although he couldn't make it our arrival time (he had another 4 houses to host that day).
But over all: well arranged and recommended!
Dear Bastiaan, thanks for your rating here. We apologize if the check in was not so warm as you expected. On the contrary we usually try to take so much care of our guests in the welcome. This is actually a peak period for us, but we don't want to use this as an excuse. We hope to have you here again as our guest in the future, so that we will have the opportunity to make you feel at home, or even better.
Our host was very easy to communicate with and was a great help with organizing airport transfers.
This was our first experience with AirBNB and overall it was a very positive experience. Our hosts rep met us about 30 minutes after we arrived - he had been held up by a guest at another location who had arrived late. Not really a good start but also not his fault, and from that point forward all went well. He showed us around, gave us what proved to be 2 excellent restaurant recommendations, showed us how to get on the wifi ( and the wifi worked excellently our entire 5 day visit). He collected a 40 euro tax for which I requested an emailed receipt (and am still waiting for). Good air conditioning. Perfect central location. 2 blocks to the river, where you can jog for miles on flat paved wide sidewalk. The best part was without doubt the rooftop deck area - quiet, green, peaceful. The 4 flights of stairs was good exercise. Our loft room was private and quiet, although our 2 teenagers noted the street noise at night from their bedroom was a bit troublesome. The bathroom was fine although the shower was a bit small. Overall a good intro to Airbnb.
Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit in Rom. Daniele ist ein sehr professioneller Gastgeber, alle Absprachen, wurden genau eingehalten, die Erreichbarkeit per Email und sms war gut. Zusätzlich zur Unterkunft hat Daniele uns zu einen angemessenen Preis einen Transfer vom Flughafen in die Stadt organisiert. Die Übergabe und Check-out sind sehr unkompliziert. Leider gibt es keine Möglichkeit, am Abreisetag nach Check-out Gepäck zwischenzulagern, wenn zum Beispiel der Rückflug erst am Abend geht. In solch einen Fall muss man auf die Gepäckaufbewahrung am Bahnhof Termini ausweichen.
Die Lage der Wohnung ist sensationell. Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten im Stadtzentrum sind leicht zu Fuß zu erreichen.
Die Wohnung selbst macht auf den Bildern einen deutlich besseren Eindruck, als der tatsächliche Zustand ist. Insbesondere das Badezimmer in Wohnwagengröße könnte eine Renovierung ganz gut vertragen. Auch die Klimaanlage des unteren Zimmers hat die besten Tage hinter sich. Der scheppernde Lärm der reparaturbedürftigen Außeneinheit direkt vor der Terrassentür des oberen Schlafzimmers erinnert eher an einen ziemlich abgerittenen Rasenmäher kurz vor dem Ende. Nachts lässt man die A/C lieber aus.
Wir würden die Wohnung vor Allem wegen der Lage dennoch jederzeit wieder mieten.
Location central, view pretty good, roof-top terrace was awesome. Nice place to stay in Rome, really close to the Pantheon.
El apartamento no puede tener más onda, todos los detalles, casi el mejor apartamento del mundo. La ubicacion es perfecta, a dos pasos del turismo pero en la movida local. Realmente un goce. Tanto Bernardo como Rita y Giovana, han sido unos anfitriones de primera línea. Adoramos sentirnos en casa, disfrutar de hacer turismo en un hogar! 100% recomendable, volvería 1000 veces
Daniele was the perfect host. Communication was immediate and all questions answered. transportation to and from the airport was hassle free. our driver spoke no English from the airport which was a bit intimidating for a first time European traveler.
the apartment was conveniently located within 20 minutes to everything.
our liaison Roberto was very amicable and gave us
lots of helpful advice
like restaurants and things
thank you for your hospitality Daniele.

About the Host, Daniele
Sono nato quaranta anni fa in una cittadina pugliese anche se vivo a Roma da sempre.
In questa splendida città sono cresciuto e mi sono laureato in biologia. Per anni ho lavorato nel campo farmaceutico, sviluppando attitudini nel commerciale e nella comunicazione.
Nella vita privata ho sempre creduto che la cosa più bella sia conoscere il mondo, non solo esplorando luoghi nuovi, ma incontrando nuove persone, culture.
Ed ho capito che la città in cui vivo, che respiro ogni giorno, è l’ombelico del mondo: Roma è il crocevia di decine e decine di culture diverse, di persone che arrivano da ogni angolo del mondo nella Città Eterna per scoprirne i suoi tesori e viverla sin nel profondo.
Ed eccomi qui: con il desiderio di accogliere e conoscere tutti quei viaggiatori che giunti a Roma, vorranno scoprirne i suoi segreti.
