The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

Other Things to Note

Some suggestions for shopping that you must not miss: "Panella", one of Rome's premier bakeries, via Merulana 54; "Fassi", for a good ice cream, via Principe Eugenio 65; "Roscioli" via Buonarroti 46; "Regoli" an excellent pastry shop, via dello Statuto 60; "Mercato di Piazza Vittorio", the most popular food market in Rome, via Principe Amedeo;

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Aldea's place was very nice. The apartment was clean and there was plenty of room for 4 of us. Aldea was very nice. She had snacks for us, hooked us up with wifi, and printed our train tickets for us. The plaza across the street was diverse and we quickly become comfortable even though we were only there a short time. The metro is right outside the front door. We took the metro from near the vatican right to Aldea's.

  • Nous avons été très bien accueilli en soirée par le fils de notre hôte et avons été ravis de voir qu'elle avait prévu de quoi faire plusieurs petits déjeuners. L'appartement est idéalement situé au pied du métro et du tram, pratique pour circuler dans tout Rome. La population du quartier est très métissée et on a trouvé plein de petiteś trattoria très proches et excellentes. Notre hôtesse nous a permis de laisser nos bagages dans l'appartement le jour de la sortie pour un départ tardif, ce qui a été très pratique.

  • Great place to stay, especially if arriving by train. 10-15 minute walk to termini station. Colosseum and roman forum are within walking distance. Metro stops for each line are just outside. Aldea was very helpful with directions and hints on where to eat and best way to get places. The apartment was great. Lots of room for 4 adults. Aldea had some breakfast food in the apartment for our arrival which was a nice treat. Would stay again if we ever go back to rome.

  • We so enjoy your home, Saturday night in Rome is party night so close the windows, the outside street looks a little rough but we found it to be safe to walk, if returning to Rome I would stay again. Alex, susie

  • Our days in this Rome apartment have been great. The building is located in a not so beautiful area, though very near to all attractions and completely safe to go out by night. The metro is just in front of the building, which is good. It is well equipped, with all you may need inside and good beds and lining. Aldea and Alessandro are excellent hosts and they gave us good tips. Besides they provided us with good complete breakfast for all our stay. We highly recommend this apartment.

  • I cannot recommend Aldea and her lovely apartment enough! She is extremely helpful and friendly and the recommendations on restaurants and where to shop were spot on. The apartment was excellent, we didn't want to leave! I will stay there again next time I am in Rome.
