This apartment was completely designed by ourselves with recyclable materials,boards, pieces of wood, old chest of our grandparents,black&white photos of Trastevere.We mixed our passion: black-and-white analogic photography and the italian handcraft.
Riari Guest House is located on the ground floor of a 1900 building in the heart of Rome, in the characteristic quarter, Trastevere.
From Riari Guest House, crossing Ponte Sisto (the footbridge) you can walk to the main historical and cultural attractions of the city. In less than ten minutes, you'll reach the Palatinum, the Coliseum and the Roman Forum or, in the same time, walk to the Pantheon, Navona Square, Campo dei Fiori and Ghetto. Some minutes more, and you'll enjoy the splendid views of Piazza di Spagna with the Spanish Steps.
Then climb the Steps to take a rest under the trees of Villa Borghese, Pincio, or Giardino del Lago. Cross again the Tiber River on the way back and admire the splendor of Saint Peter Cathedral and of Castel Sant'Angelo. Then, if you will not be too tired, walk back home in ten minutes, through the characteristic vicoli (small streets) of Trastevere.

New York has its Greenwich Village, and Rome has its Trastevere. In Trastevere's case, however, the sense of being a world apart goes back more than two millennia. The inhabitants don't even call themselves Romans but Trasteverini, going on to claim that they, not the citizens north of the river, are the true remaining Romans. No matter: A trip to Trastevere (literally, "across the Tiber") still feels a bit like entering a different time and place. Some call it the world's third-smallest nation (after the Vatican, No. 2). A living chronology, the district remains an enchanting confusion of past and present. With its charming, crumbling streets lined with medieval bell towers and chic osterie, this is one big little town where strangers don't remain strangers too long. True Trasteverini are now few and far between, most of the older generation having sold their now valuable family apartments, but something of them remains.
Trastevere's new residents promote a new kind of outsider identity, embodied variously in yoga centers, social outreach programs, and innumerable funky bars.
The heart of Trastevere is the lovely Piazza Santa Maria, presided over by the gilded and floodlit church of the same name. Nearby are a variety of historic churches, set in alleys and sunny piazzas, but the greatest artistic treasures are to be found a short walk to the north, in Raphael's frescoes at the Villa Farnesina in front of our street), and the Baroque paintings, including a Caravaggio, in the collection at the Palazzo Corsini (the building is before our street). The neighborhood's greatest attraction, however, is simply its atmosphere—traditional shops set along crooked streets, peaceful during the day, and alive with throngs of restaurant- and partygoers at night.
Our palazzo is a quiet and exclusive environment so:
- No parties, music or noises after 10.00 p.m.
Children and pets are very welcome so:
- NO SMOKING!!
Please be conscious about leaving lights on/off.

We really loved our stay in this appartment! We (incl our 1,5 year old son) felt very much at home at the appartment and the lovely neighbourhood. It is a great location for exploring Rome. The appartment was very clean, cosy and very suitable for children. Luca & Martina, thank you very much for your hospitality!!
This is a nice apartment in a great location. Much better than staying in a hotel! Luca and Martina were excellent hosts, with Martina staying up very late to greet us due to a delayed arrival, and Luca ordering taxis for us in Italian. Highly recommended.
L'accoglienza di Luca è stata gentilissima e sollecita, si è dimostrato molto cortese e pronto a dare ogni spiegazione e informazione utile. L'appartamento è grazioso e accogliente, pieno di materiali che possono fare comodo per chi non conosce Roma, e di piccoli tocchi personali gradevoli. La zona è animata e divertente, ma la casa è comunque molto tranquilla e silenziosa. È un'ottima base per visitare Roma: basta uscire di casa e ci sono già molte cose interessanti da vedere.
The apartment is perfectly located in Trastevere. Warm and friendly welcome from the hosts.
We really loved our stay in Luca and Martina's lovely apartment, it is cosy, beautifully decorated, well-designed AND centrally located, what else :-)
The neighbourhood is very nice, filled with cafes, bars, restaurants and cute shops. We'd love to come back soon!
Loved this apartment. The location was great as Trastevere is a neighbourhood that is close to all the sights but has a local vibe to it with many nice restaurants. The apartment had lots of little touches that made it very comfortable such as tea, coffee, biscuits, toiletries etc. Martina was a wonderful host who met us and gave us lots of info about Rome, including providing us with a map to show where everything was. Definitely recommend
Had a great experience at Martina and Luca's wonderful apartment. They went out of their way at every turn to make sure I was comfortable and well taken care of, checking in each day, calling me a taxi in Italian, swiftly fixing the wifi. Great stay in a perfect neighborhood.
