Where are you going to live in Rome during the dates of your booking?
In the best area , San Giovanni in Laterano area, or Appio Latino district, here in Rome there is no a clear definition about districts, al the centuries are mixed in a disordered way or, after the XIX century, following a new urbanistic order. Our area was built just after the unification of the Reing of Italy and the conquer of Rome by the Garibaldi forces , called " I Mille " . One thounsand men with his comandant, Giuseppe Garibaldi. That period was really hard for the relationships with the Vatican and clearical power, until the point that the Pope Pio IX delivered a " Bolla papale " saying to all the Catholics that who was going to help the new Reing was going against the Vatican. This is cause you can see on the map the limits of the Vatican city, a complex of buildings around beautiful gardens and the Basilica of San Peter.
Considering that, your roman experience will start from the roman side on the the city center, where you can discover the most part of roman monuments and ruins, then you have the middle age and then the Renaissance and Baroque period. Suggested to read a little about the roman history and history of art, so you can appreciate the great aspect to stay on the right side of Rome, to enjoy it better, starting from the roman period, that of course is mixed with the Christian, after Costantinum law ( Edictus Costantinorum ) about the end of the Christian persecution by romans ( 313 AD ), cause in that period the rule was the pantheistic view of Gods, so not only one God like the christians used to say.
So you can understand better the great green area protected by the Unesco around the Ancient Appian Way, the old twin of the new one, the " Via Appia Nuova " the new way to get the Colosseum next door where you can enjoy the tipical modern customs, like shopping , caffè bars and the good transportations of the city.
Meeting the Archibasilica of Rome, the first Christian Basilica, called San John in Lateran, you will have the first example of what happend in Rome during the centuries, under that basilica you can find the hide roman underground or you can continue your walking tour until San Clemente , having your first meeting with the most ancient Stadium built by the human being, The Anphiteatrum Flavium or just the Colosseum.
It is suggested to stay minimum 10 days in Rome to have a full immertion about all the ingredients that can make your trip a real travel.
I am offering you my home where I use to live when I was in the high school and the University of Rome. I passed my childhood traveling cause the worl of my parents.
An entire and private apartment in a condominium of 8 floors with a terrace on the top of the building where to enjoy also a bath of sun.
Composed by 2 double bedrooms (with 2 double king size beds ) plus a living room that seems an art gallery, just to go straight to the point, to enjoy Rome you have absolutely to visit not only the famous monuments but specially the art galleries . At home there is a great guide to plan that tours.
There is one park in Rome really famous cause its art gallery museum, it is not walking distance to everybody, but there is a direct connection with the metro -subway -underground of Rome that give to everyone the possibility to reach the Borghese Gallery area in just 15 minutes , then you hace to walk inside of one of the best examples of an italian garden, in the Borghese Ville , a park that we call the heart of Rome cause its desing , not only for ecologic reasons.
You can combine also the art of the flavours, at home you have a kitchen and if you are not a good cheff, no problem, you will be in the right place, I never went to a place so rich about gastronomic culture like Rome. When I was living in Rome I never thought about that aspect, traveling a lot during this period of my life I can say that not only the monuments that you can see are important but also the flavour you are going to taste and discover will change your idea about good food.
After your deep exploration and discover of the amazing places everywhere you have of course also aspects of normality like a kitchen with a fridge, markets just nextdoor with bakeries, groceries and confiteries. I hope you are not ciliac or allergic cause that it is a shame , but not a problem, there are also macrobiotic restaurants. Ask in advance about this special suggestions.
Of course there is a special toilet -bathroom with a special shower, and a cosy balcony for irreducible and incorrigible smokers at the 4° floor, in a building with lift .
About the lift -elevator I ask you the high level of attention, it is the only common amenitie in the condominium that use to create problems between neighbours and some guests had the unlucky adventure to fight about a no correct use of the lift, creating me a problem just cause they entered being 5 persons in a lift for 3 persons, risking their life and risking to create me a big problem in my hosting work.
I trust in the new travelers about the respect of this simple rules.
Summing up : You will live in Rome, Italy just in one of the best places to stay and to spend some day for holidays . The strategical location will give you the possibility to plan tours by yourself or just following my key suggestions and to cover all your needs about the material needs and at the same time, to have also a living real roman experience like a roman use to do.
There is a modern Bathroom with a great shower and all the basic services. A full equipped kitchen is going to give you the chance to try also some italian recipe at home, in a very quite building, where to restore yourself after a long day exploring the city, with lift and stairs. Perfect for 4 persons, 3 persons or one couple. It is possible to book also if you are a single traveler and you would like to have an own private apartment. No host living inside, I prefer to give you the best privacy.
My home it is a fresh and quite apartment where to stay, with an artistical and modern design, like you can notice in the pictures made by Airbnb.
You will find historical information, maps, a lot of maps, perhaps one of my passions and, I will give you all the tips you need to go around the city, walking and using the public transportation, helping you to save time and money. Walking distance you have many places, suggested to look at the map and you can feel the emotion to pass from a modern part of the city through the Aurelian Roman Wall , walking on the " Via Appia Nuova street " the way to the Rome iconic symbol, the " Colosseum " or like we call it, the " Ombelico " in english Umbelicus or just navel of the world.
Your booked flat is in a modern-old part of the city , but at the same time not too far from the main important spots, with all the services to live in and the complete , public transportation system to go around if you prefer to go faster , with "Cafes" " good restaurants " , " pizzerias " , pharmacy , banks ATM just next door of the building .

Interaction with guests
I speak English, perfectly Spanish and Italian, so you can contact me also in those languages.Who knows me, say that I am friendly and easy going . But the true is that I am friendly with friendly persons, easy going with easygoing persons. I use to protect my guests, but I have to protect also my neighbours and me against unpolite travelers.

I am sorry if I am not able to speak other languages yet but I would like to learn French and Portugues, to improve my english and to find the time to learn also German and perhaps other languages considering that Europe need people that love all the nationalities, it is our goal to start the new focus, to keep on the rich culture we have like our heritage for the future generations. I am sorry with the Chinese and arabs travelers, but I need that people in my home are able to understand my simple rules of convivence to prevent problems and misunderstandings. I am gay friendly and I am not a fanatic nationalist person I just love my city and my ancient culture, of course I am curious about all the world, but cause practical aspects hosting foreing persons I need to keep on comunication and to speak the same language is a condition to be hosted in my home. Just cause my home is not an hotel so I am really sorry if I can not help all the nationalities.

My family it is not only Italian, but also spanish and german so, I have an international culture and I define myself like a cosmopolite. I am a jurisconsult and musician. My father it is an engineer & architect and he was a professor in the University of Rome, the city where I was born and where I use to live .. Well, he instil in me the passion for the roman architecture, temples , arts and gave me a chance to walk inside the streets of Rome with other eyes.. And my mother , working in the international organism like F.A.O. American Embassy and being diplomatic, have instilled in my way to think the passion for the world and its different cultures, an open mind about difference , and the reason I can speak Spanish and English . I' m on Airbnb to share my homes, or bases, like I use to call them, discovering a nice way to meet persons that love Rome and to feel me like in a big family of travelers.
Cause the work of my parents I travelled a lot during my life having the possibility to know different cities and countries. The most part of my life I was living through Italy, United Kindom, France, Spain, Argentine, Uruguay , Brasil, Colombia, Venezuela, Cuba and U.S.A. That it is the reason that give me the passion to be your host, having been all the time really well welcomed in other countries , I learned practically or indirectly , to be a host. I enjoy life in Rome like a traveller, even if I am a resident cause this city it is amazing , not only in the centre but also out from the roman walls that it is the limit of the historical centre.. So I can help you to discover also other places not so common.
I like when my guest share with me their curiosities about Rome, its history , the monuments and good places to eat Italian food, so I can help them to have a better way to spend their days in the Airbnb community way to travel through locals homes. Each home has the personality of the host that will welcome you.

Living in an historical city like Rome, full of art history , you can travel around the history of art , just walking from one hood to another one, cause in Rome you have one of the best example of the travel of part of the humanity along the centuries.
I like the concept of "slow food", and I found in Italy my favourites recipes about pasta , pizza , and the Italian gastronomic culture. So I can share with you many tips on where to find good places to enjoy your days in Rome, so you can be inspired not only by the beauty of the paintings , sculptures and monuments but also by the unique flavours that can be tasted in Rome.
I lived also in Argentine, in Buenos Aires DC, where I finished my high school , so I speak Spanish , English and Italian. But thank to my Airbnb guests I am having a good way to practice the Shakespeare language, and the Spanish language. I am trying to learn Portuguese, French, German, Russian, Sveden but it is not so simple ^_^..
Apart other works I use to do, with music and languages , I consider my host experience like a work, where I find a way to express many of my passions an qualities.
My favorites experience in my life: love, music, waves, friends, poems, sunsets, nature, art & good food.
