The apartment is very well connected to the city center, just down the apartment there is a bus stop, 10 minutes ride to Piazza Venezia (bus 170), where the Roman Forum is and the Colosseum is only at 5 minutes walking distance!
The bus 170 also leads to the main station in Rome (Termini Station).
At night, the bus 780 gets to the heart of Trastevere in only 10 minutes (Mastai Square stop) great area with a lot of restaurants and places to taste the typical Roman food.
Near home, you can find a supermarket, a bank and a pharmacy. Just in front of the flat there is a good restaurant/pizzeria called 'Retro' where you can it very good meat or pizza. If you want a take away dinner, I suggest you ' Umbria - Pizzeria, snack bar and grill' in Piazza della Radio 18-19. Ernesto and Alessandro have absolutely good pizza slices with zucchini flowers, and mozzarella baked with mushrooms and tuna, stuffed with ham and soft cheese. For a quick and fresh lunch that is just the right place: lasagna, zucchini and ham pie, chicken skewers or Tuscan, turkey dumplings, sea bass in salt crust and vegetables at will.
Instead if you want taste great coffee and good brioches, you have to go to 'Mario Tornatora bar' in via Oderisi da Gubbio 27.
If you like homemade ice cream, try the fantastic ice cream 'mela e cannella' in via oderisi da Gubbio 71. There are very fabulous flavor like Apple and cinnamon or chocolate and rosemary.
Rome has many historic buildings, however, it is advisable to start your holidays from the heart of the eternal city: the Roman Forum (now become a pedestrian street) and the Coliseum. They are truly amazing! Getting there is very simple, just catch the bus 170 or 780 at the bus stop close to the house and get off at Piazza Venezia.
We recommend you to visit the markets of Trajan, adjacent to the Coliseum .
There is also a museum where you can see Roman art from the Roman Forum and the Capitoline Museum.
This is located on the Campidoglio hill next to City Hall in Rome, the square, the Town Hall and the museum designed by Michelangelo!
After the museum I suggest you take a walk on VIA DEL CORSO to get to Piazza del Popolo. On right side of Via del Course there are some very beautiful and famous streets, one of them is the famous Via Condotti, where there most beautiful shops in Rome are! Here you can also admire the famous steps of Trinità dei Monti and Piazza di Spagna with its beautiful fountain designed by Bernini!
I recommend you visit the Via del Babbuino and Via Margutta, where Federico Fellini lived for 40 years!
If you love coffee, in the historic center of Rome you have the opportunity to taste the best coffee in three fantastic places:
- Caffè di S. Eustachio in Piazza S. Eustachio: you can have the best espresso in Rome
- Ice cream FIOCCO DI NEVE in via del Pantheon: Try the ZABAIONE drowned in the coffee ... a delight!
- CAFFÈ LA TAZZA D'oro in via Degli Orfani close to the Pantheon: the coffee with cream or iced coffee with cream is a MUST!

Overall a good stay. Apartment was exactly like the pictures and very clean. Although a farther walk from the station than expected it was a nice area. Also the main centre is abit farther with the walk to the station plus 20/30 min train/bus. Would definitely recommend staying here!!
Die Unterkunft ist sehr schön und persönlich eingerichtet mit genug Platz für vier Personen. Die Fotos im Internet stimmen mit der Wohnung überein. Positiv überrascht waren wir von dem vielen Stauraum und dem Balkon. Beide Schlafgelegenheiten waren sehr komfortabel. An- und Abreise mit Zwei und Bahn verliefen dank guter Wegbeschreibung und Absprachen sehr gut und entspannt. Der einzige Kritikpunkt ist die Hellhörigkeit des Hauses. Am liebsten würden wir daher 4.5 Sterne geben.
We enjoyed very much staying at Franceasca's flat. It was just like in the picture, very colorful and tasteful, also it was very clean and equipped with everything needed. At the check-in we had a little issue (regarding the check-in hour) but in the final everything was okay.
Ho soggiornato in casa di Francesca con mia moglie e mio figlio, la casa è perfetta per tre persone ma c'è posto anche per un'altro ospite. L'appartamento è servito da un ascensore ed ha ogni comfort, un bel bagno colorato e pulito, una cucina perfetta e moderna, un salotto comodo con tavolo da pranzo ed una camera molto accogliente con due grandi cabine armadio. Il quartiere ha tanti ristoranti, bar, pasticcerie e pizzerie oltre a negozi e supermercati molto forniti. In bus si raggiunge il centro in 15 minuti. È stata un'ottima esperienza, Francesca è sempre stata disponibile ed il key holder è gentilissimo. Lo consiglio a tutti per trascorrere una vacanza full optional a Roma! Rapporto qualità/prezzo ottimo!!
L'appartement de Francesca est charmant, super confortable, moderne, très joliment décoré avec des couleurs joyeuses. Il a été parfait pour notre petite famille (une chambre à coucher séparée du coin cuisine & salon par deux portes), avec la cuisine bien équipée et une salle de bain propre (avec un baignoire).
Le quartier est animé est vous pouvez y trouver tout ce dont vous avez besoin - il y a plein de cafés, de bars, de restaurants, des magasins tout genre, un supermarché, une banque, une pharmacie etc. L'arrêt de bus se trouve au pied de l'immeuble (même si le trajet est assez long, le taxi pour le centre coûte 12-15€).
Francesca est un vrai Speedy Gonzales de réponse, elle vous réplique par mail ou texto en vitesse éclair, chapeau pour la réactivité :-) Aussi, elle nous a donné plusieurs bonnes adresses et bons tuyaux pour se régaler côté cuisine.
Nous recommandons tout à fait cet (website hidden). Il y a 60€ des frais additionnels à payer à la personne qui vous accueille avec les clés. C'est un budget à prévoir en plus, mais cela reste quand même un très bon rapport qualité-prix à Rome.
The flat was exactly as advertised and Francesca was very helpful and answered quickly to any questions we had.
The flat was very clean and had all the necessary equipment. Even though the flat is not within a walking distance from the city center or places like the Vatican or Colosseum, it is well connected with public transport. There are also nice restaurants, grocery stores, a pharmacy and even shopping opportunities right next to the flat. It is also really easy to find the flat at least when arriving from the Fiumicino airport - just hop on a train and walk 10 minutes from a nearby train station.
One thing to note is that the keyholder who welcomed us when we arrived does not speak English. But at least for us this was not a problem as the instructions Francesca had given were very clear.
All in all, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place for anyone who does not mind using public transport to move around.
We had a really pleasant time in this flat, it was big enough for 4 people, very clean, modern and looked exactly like the pictures.
Francesca has been really nice with us and really flexible with the arrival and leaving time. Thank you!
