Trastevere, the heart of the city, home to major Italian dialectical poet Gioachino Belli and the inspiration for another, Trilussa. It is precisely here that Roman plebeians were born and raised. Amid piazzas, its “Fontanone” fountain and cobblestoned streets, the “Trasteverini” led in ancient times the lives of the common people, whose pride and sincere character as well as beautiful women set them apart from the “nobility”. Today the district is still amongst Rome’s most beautiful and characteristic: the hub of nightlife and wining and dinning, an open air theatre of marvellous piazzas (Piazza Trilussa, Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, Piazza San Cosimato ..), churches and historical alleys, all of which are marked by that distinctive timeless “Roman” flavour.
There is nothing more pleasant than an evening stroll through Testaccio, the working-class district, situated between Via Marmorata, the Aurelian Walls and the River Tiber, where true Roma soccer supporters are born and bred. Sense the rather original atmosphere of a zone heaving with restaurants, bars and clubs, making the area around Monte Testaccio highly popular with night-lifers.
The Monte dei Cocci, or Monte Testaccio, is a real and proper “waste tip”, an artificial mound dating from the Roman era rising in the very heart of the city. The ancient Romans in fact used to dump their broken pieces of pottery and fragments of oil amphorae which had arrived for market and been unloaded at the nearby river port on the Tiber. This gathering pile of earthenware over time swelled into a hill, where today a pleasant stroll may be taken hunting for exciting relics dating from the third century A.D. Then in the following centuries, grottos were dug, used as cellars and stables, which have been turned into restaurants and disco-pubs, popular haunts for the nightlifers.

Lovely little apartment in a gorgeous and convenient neighbourhood with a great shower and comfy bed. The hosts were prompt to meet us, explained everything and then left us to it, which was perfect.
Sabrina was very helpful. She gave us all the information we needed, and even arranged a taxi for us (which arrived 15 minutes early) to take us to the airrpot.
Muy bien ubicado, Trastevere es un lugar repleto de bares y restaurantes que por la noche tienen mucha vida, no obstante el deparamento era silencioso. La zona es muy segura y pudimos ir a pie a la mayorìa de los sitios de interès. El depto es còmodo y està bien equipado. Sabrina arreglò nuestro tralsado desde el aeropuerto y tambièn cuando nos fuimos hasta la estaciòn de tren.
Sabrina was wonderful! We loved all of her recommendations for restaurants and she was very helpful with arranging taxi service for us to and from the airport. The apartment was perfect, we had everything we needed. It was also in a great location, so many cute little places near by. Loved our time here.
Muy bien ubicado, a dos pasos del centro de la ciudad y en medio de la muy alegre zona de Trastevere, con mucha vida nocturna, bares, restaurantes, etc. No conoci personalmente a Sabrina, pero por telefono fue muy amable y nos ayudo con todas nuestras inquietudes y preguntas. Un lugar al que volveria!!
We enjoyed our stay here and I would recommend it to any couple. Sabrina was very helpful, accommodating, and easy-going. The location is excellent - a fairly quiet street with cafes and restaurants 2 blocks away. Despite there being a BLIZZARD in Rome (!?!), it was warm and we slept well.
The place is well located in a fun neighborhood with lots of great restaurants and shops and close walking to major sights. Sabrina was great!
