Amistad House is recently restored 5th floor airy flat, in an building dated back to 1860, in the heart of Rome. Few minutes walking from Colosseum (0,5 miles), Roman Forum (0,6 miles), the Lateran (0,7 miles), Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore (0,1 miles). Actually, you can visit by walk all the city, from Amistad. We manage tourism jobs in Rome with proud love since 1995, and we’ll suggest you the best walk-paths to enjoy Rome, even without using once a bus.
Nevertheless, if you really dislike to walk, just get out from the front door, and enter the subway station “Vittorio Emauele” (15 feet ahead the door!). Subway is really cheap (1 €, no matter how long you run) and allows you to reach every important point of the city centre, i.e.: Piazza di Spagna in 5 minutes, Vatican in 9 minutes, the Lateran 2 minutes, etc. You can even use subway to get to the beach (45 minutes), or to the archeological ruins of the ancient roman
harbour Ostia (50 minutes).
Main train station “Termini” is also very close (0,3 miles, or 2 minutes by subway). From this station, the biggest one in Italy, it’s easy to reach Naple, Florence, Pisa, Venice, and quite all Italian towns. Frequent trains run regularly to the international airports “Leonardo Da Vinci” (Fiumicino – FCO), and “Pastine” (Ciampino – CPO).
We are just over the top of Colle Esquilino (one of the famous seven hills), in an area called for “the heart of Rome” by writers such as Carlo E. Gadda, and Amara Lakhous. Roman nobleman Mecenas built his gorgeous villa here; today, people from all over the world here walk, work, and enjoy. The ancient Arch of Gallienus (3rd c.) and famous restaurants Trattoria Monti and Agarta e Romeo are next to our door. Events, concerts and festivals occur very often in the park of next square (piazza Vittorio), few steps away. All around, dozens of stalls sell flowers. Shops, supermarkets, snack-bars, the most inexpensive discount in Italy (“MAS”), and many little coloured and happy knick-knackery shops surround the area. Well, come here. You’ll save money, even in buying souvenirs.
Max with his many years of experience, will be happy to welcome you and show you, in addition to tourist trails, also special secret glimpses of the eternal city.
