Surrounded by "palazzi" with large porticoes in the 19th century style, the piazza Vittorio Emanuele II was built by Gaetano Koch shortly after the unification of Italy. Umbertine in style, it is the largest piazza in Rome. In the centre of the piazza there is a garden with the remains of a fountain built by Alexander Severus, and the so-called "Porta Magica" (Magic Gate) or "Porta Alchemica" (Alchemist's Door), the entrance to Villa Palombara, residence of the alchemist Massimiliano II Palombara.
In Vittorio De Sica's "Bicycle Thieves" (Ladri di biciclette), it was in Piazza Vittorio that the protagonist Antonio Ricci and his young son Bruno seek desperately to recover his stolen bicycle, but realise the futility of his task as the vast square is filled with countless bicycles and bicycle parts that resemble his own.
Walking distance from Colosseo, Fori Imperiali, Domus Aurea and two of the four major Basiliche of Rome, San Giovanni in Laterano and Santa Maria Maggiore.

I totally confirm the very positive feedback of other reviewers. I would only add that you don't have the feeling of staying in a cold impersonal apartment for rent but in a flat just left by good friends and lent to us, due to the warmth and atmosphere given by the sensitivity of the owners. Thanks Mrs. Aldea and Mr. Alessandro.
Aldea was a great hostess and the appartment was clean, spacious, quiet, and centrally located with easy access to the subway and easy walking to most of the sights in Rome. She is very friendly and it was a pleasure to stay there. Highly recommended!
The house is very centrally located and just in front of the metro!
It is a very clean apartment and well kept.
Aldea is a very nice host who had kept some things to eat and drink for us for our arrival and to make us comfortable.
Highly recommended since it is a very nice place!
It has been a great experience being at Aldea's appartment. The appartment could not be better for a family, within walking distance from the most important monuments. In the surrounding area anything needed could be found and the metro station is in front of the main door. What else could we ask for?? It has been a pleasure to deal with Aldea and Alesssandro, always willing to help. We would recommend anyone to stay with them. Thank you!
Aldea has been a pleasure to deal with from the outset. Wow a wonderful place exceeded our expectation, combined with very genuine warm people. Outstanding thank you.
Nothing bad to say!! Everything was more than perfect!! Aldea is a very very kind host, helpful and willing to answer all our questions. We arrived very late in the midnight and she was waiting for us, ready to make us feel immediately like home!
The appartment is really lovely and beautiful, very well decorated, extremely clean, comfortable and suitable for 2 couples. Each of us had a private bedroom with a private bathroom, and a separate pair of keys! It was a surprise for us to find in the kitchen biscuits, corn-flakes, cakes, milk, drinks, fresh fruits and many other things for snack!
I would reccomend the apparment for any traveller! We will definitely go again there!! THANK YOU ALDEA for the excellent accomodation!
The apartment is very well situated with the Metro just outside the entrance! Ten minutes walk to Termini. If you are a walker a great part of Rome is within walking distance: Coloseum, Fontana di Trevi, Via Veneto, etc.
The hosts live on the same landing and they are most helpful and speak perfect English.
The apartment is roomy and in good condition. Everything works. We had no problems.
Glad to recommend the apartment!
We realy enjoyed our stay in this wonderfull apartment.! Quick response from owners and an easy communication. This apartment is located nearby the major sights, and the neighbour of the most impressing churches in Rome, Santa Maria Maggiore. The Metro station only 10 m from the entrance.
The apartment has everything you need, and the host Aldea and her family tolk really good care of us.
The apartment is very Nice, bright, clean, spacious - and quiet and calm. It is situated in a charming area. Aldea recommended a very nice restaurant, Trattoria Morgana, just 300 m from the apartment, in via Mercenate 21, where they serve the Real roman cuicina!, ((email hidden))
Overall for the quality, the price, the location and the service, this is a great offer. We Will return.
Thank you Aldea & Alessandro for this pleasant stay in your lovely apartment. You were great hosts. We really enjoyed the time. It's a beautiful flat where we felt like home. there was nothing missing: breakfast, drinks and even a first aid kit. The apartment is very good located. We were able to reach all the sights easy by walking. What can we say. We highly recommend this place!
