The ‘Africa’ room provides triple accommodation (can also accommodate 4 persons), where one can experience the distinct atmosphere of East Africa.

The B&B is strategically positioned and ideal for travelers who seek variety in their holiday experience. Guests can enjoy nearby beaches, visit renowned archeological and historic sites, such as the ‘Terme di Traiano Civitavecchia’, Pyrgi (Santa Severa), Cerveteri, and the notorious necropoli in the Etruscan town of Tarquinia.

A Super Host. Maria goes out of her way to make sure you are comfortable and at home, in her home. She has maps of the city for you, gives you advice as to what to see, and for a small fee (5€) can pick you up or take you to the train station or cruise terminal. A great place to stay.
Maria was a wonderful host. Between her and her daughter, we learned a lot about the local area as well as the Italian culture as a whole. They picked us up from the airport and took us to our port in the morning. They went above and beyond to make sure our time was pleasant. This was a part of our honeymoon trip and we plan on going back for an anniversary sometime as well!
Beautiful kids. Absolutely delightful. They went above and beyond the call of duty. Wonderful hosts. Beautiful room. It's a pity we didn't have a couple of days to spend in the area. Nothing was too much trouble. Mum, you can be proud of your two children. A lovely start to our European travels. Thank you.
Maria is off the charts as a host. This was one of our best stays ever in any city in the world. The B&B is so clean and well appointed. What a bargain price for the quality. The breakfast was wonderful and we even picked our own fresh pears and enjoyed Maria's special Lemon Cello.
If you stay in Civitavecchia you should first check to see if Maria has availability. This will be our list of special places to visit again.
If you are on a cruise leaving the Rome Port, you should definitely spend a few days in the port city to enjoy the surrounding area with lot's to visit without the crowds and stay with Maria Papa. She's the best host we have ever had and she could charge a much higher fee.
Thanks for a lifelong memory of a charming city.
Maria's place is very quiet and we slept very well; and she made us wonderful coffee in the morning. We would definitely stay with her again.
Maria was wonderful. She went out of her way to make us comfortable. Her B&B is attached to her home, a lovely property about a kilometer from the shore. The neighborhood is residential.
After just 2 days in 'Angola Fiorato' we feel that we have a new friend in Maria.
She is warm and welcoming and a first-class hostess.
Her newly renovated rooms are decorated to a very high standard and impeccably presented. We appreciated the use of the mini-kitchen. Wifi was good and parking is available nearby. She has plans to have her own off street parking which combined with free shuttle service is a boon to cruise clients.
Her B and B is within easy walking distance of the beautiful promenade and many restaurants.
We highly recommend Maria's B n B and would stay with her again.

About the Host, Maria
I live in Civitavecchia. I am a retired teacher. I have travelled for 20 years aabroad teaching Italian. After retirement, instead of going into the world, I decided to bring the world into my home. I designated part of my house to a Bed and Breakfast where I have the honour of hosting and meeting marvellous people from different countries and cultures.
