Youthful and fashionable with wood parquet floors and exposed brick, this studio has a lofted area with a double size bed, a kitchen, and living room area. The bathroom is all done is small mosaic tiles, with shower stall. An amazing budget option for a good deal of space in a very sought after neighborhood, famous for nightlife, restaurants, bars, or simply strolling around the narrow, cobblestone streets.
Interaction with Guests
I live in the same street so I will be happy to help you have a wonderful stay !
While Rome entices with its extraordinary monuments, Trastevere, one of its many distinct neighborhoods, captures the traveler's heart. Trastevere, which translates literally to "across the Tiber," was once considered the outskirts of Rome. Allowed to develop its own flavor and now part of the historic centre, it's the perfect place to glimpse a bit of the old world while still enjoying the lifestyle of today's Romans.
Often described as Bohemian, homes bedecked with flower boxes and clinging ivy intertwine with coffee bars, restaurants, and one-of-a-kind boutiques. Buildings in terracotta, maize, and wine cast a glow, like a daylong sunset. From the cobblestone streets to the overhanging laundry lines, senses are pleasantly awakened with every step.
The most popular gathering place in the area is Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere. Dating back to the 3rd century, the church of Santa Maria in Trastevere is the oldest in the city. Take note that there are no less than 80 other churches named for her in Rome. Visitors come to view the gleaming mosaics by Pietro Cavallini
In the late afternoon, it's common to take a passeggiata or evening walk. Arched doorways, climbing ivy and pathways closed to traffic provide a relaxed setting for strolling. Children gather to play in the piazzas and neighbors catch up on the latest news.
Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere could be called the piazza that never sleeps: street performers entertain crowds into the wee hours with music, fire juggling, acrobatics and comic skits. Places like the Foro Romano or the Spanish Step maybe more enjoyable during the daytime, but for nightlife, Trastevere is the place to be. Some neighborhoods in Rome can be intimidating after dark; Trastevere isn't one of them. Italians and foreigners pour in after hours to enjoy the many bars and restaurants.
At dusk, in adjacent Piazza Sant' Egidio, artisans and vendors set up tables to sell crafts, jewelry, candles and more. A former convent turned museum, Sant'Egidio's Museo del Folklore features exhibits portraying more recent Roman life.
If you want to get a workout or just need to get in touch with nature, the park at Villa Pamphili in Monteverde, further up Mount Janiculum (Gianicolo), is the place to be. Void of tourists, this running, walking, and biking trail draws old and young alike. During the weekdays, grandparents pushing strollers are common and on the weekends, couples and families arrive to picnic and exuberantly cheer soccer games. Water pours continuously from fountains here and all over Rome.
Bargain hunters will be happy to know about the Porta Portese flea market. Located off Viale Trastevere, beginning at the corner of Via Portuense and Via Ippolito Nievo, the savvy shopper can stock up on new and used items including beautiful picture frames, prints, jewelry, trendy clothing and many more good buys. Go early to avoid the crowds (hours are Sundays, 6:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.).
All are close, Tram, bus and train!

We had a wonderful time at Lucilla's! It's a cosy well decorated appartment. It's also idealy situated in the heart of Trastevere were all the restaurants and bars are.
Last but not least, the welcoming was very kind.

Lucilla makes you immediately feel welcome! Not only by giving free bottle of wine and fruit, but also by giving good advice where to go, to eat etc. The apartment is very nice, well decorated and situated in a very cosy neighborhood with many nice restaurants within walking distance. So Lucilla, many thanks for all your help and hope to see you again sometime. Cheers! Saskia and Gerbren
We had only 2 days to enjoy Rome, however we really felt at ease as soon as we arrive by the warm welcome from Lucilla! Our arrival was late and Lucilla was always in touch ensuring all was ok. The flat is exactly what you see on the ad. There was a nice champagne and a fruit basket! Lucilla also offered us a lovely breakfast in a gallery around the corner. The bed was so comfortable we really rested and forgot about work!!! Location is perfect, in a quiet street but few minutes from amazing restaurants and bars and some touristic attractions. Would surely come back! Grazie Lucilla!
A real pleasure to meet Lucilla and stay in her beautiful apartment.
One of the nicest AirBnB hosts we've met.
The apartment is really nice and trendy and it's located in a great part of the city.
I'd definitely recommend it.
We had a great time at Lucilla's place. Lucilla arranged everything perfectly from the pick up at the AirPort till making reservations at restaurants. She was really kind and easy to communicate with.
The loft is in a great area in Trastevere. Lots of restaurants and bars nearby.
The loft was a perfect base to relax after a long day in Rome!
Thank you for everything Lucilla! You are fantastic!!
We've stayed with Airbnb hosts across several cities in the US and Europe. What differentiates Lucilla is her personal care for our stay and happiness. From the moment we arrived she greeted us with a sincere hug, a bottle of wine and fruit + the most exceptional recommendation for food - Le Mani in Pasta which was literally on the same block. Living in NYC we get the opportunity to experience a lot of great food - but I can tell you nothing and I mean NOTHING we've had comes close to this place. Lucilla really took the extra time to ensure that we knew how to use the washer as we'd been on the road in Spain an needed to do a load, was quick to respond to any email, answer questions, and literally made our trip to Rome truly wonderful. So much so that we even extended the stay two additional nights! Tratevere is a great part of Rome just across the river with access via tram and walking to literally everything. We never wanted to stay in the "heart" of the tourist traps so Tratevere suited us perfectly. Lucialla's place is on a small, beautiful little side street so no tourists and we felt safe walking and getting lost at night. Wine shops, grocery and bars galore are a quick walk. We've not only found the best place to stay in Rome but also a really wonderful person who we are happy to now call a friend.
