Trastevere the dense area across the river, is considered by many to be Rome's most authentic neighborhood, teeming with street life and overflowing with local color. At night, both natives and tourists alike flock to its many pubs and restaurants. The unique character of this neighborhood has attracted artists, foreign expats, and many famous people.
Step outside your door and find Baroque fountains, medieval churches, Imperial Roman temples and the shops, restaurants and people which lead people to call Rome a big "village". Trastevere maintains its character thanks to its narrow cobbled streets lined by medieval houses.

Vi hadde en fantastisk bryllupsreise til Roma. Elisabetta´s nydelige studio ga en perfekt ramme til oppholdet. Leiligheten var stor og luftig og deilig å trekke seg tilbake til når alle inntrykkene fra denne intense byen måtte fordøyes. Beliggenheten er fantastisk. Elisabettas tips til spisesteder i nærområdet var veldig nyttige. Vi bestilte sjåfør gjennom Elisabetta direkte fra flyplassen, og det fungerte glimrende. Sengen var stor og god, med ordentlig dyne. Vi håper å vende tilbake om ikke for lenge og kan varmt anbefale denne leiligheten. Det må dessuten være supert om man er en større gruppe å leie begge leilighetene samtidig. Det drømmer vi om : ) Vi nøt å drikke morgenkaffe med juice og toast med åpne vinduer ut til Farnesina-parken på den andre siden av gaten. Noen kan kanskje bli sjenert av trafikkstøyen fra en trafikkert gate litt lengre bort, men man må ikke glemme at man er i verdensbyen Roma, og under Romerriket var det mye mer bråkete av vogner som hadde hjul med jernbeslag.. Vi kan varmt anbefale dette stedet!

we came back to Elisabetta after two years.the place remained a jewl of Trastevere as before.I even brought my kids and parents and we stayed in both rooms. The house keeper was helpfull and nice. taxi to airport arranged by him was great and cheap. We definitely will come the third time.
Well, to be honest, the location of apartment was near a road, so it's not so quiet at night . If you wanna go to train station or any landmark, you have to cross the bridge and go a little long distance to catch buses. The facilities in the apartment was very old, especially the bath room, the roof was too low, which makes the space of bathroom very narrow. But, host supplied for us some snacks as breakfast ,very lovely .
This is a beautiful apartment. The building is gorgeous, and the apartment itself is well decorated. There is a small fridge, a toaster, and a few cups to have a very simple breakfast. The location of this apartment is great. The proximity to the Trastevere area is a huge asset: lots of restaurants to eat at, two or three different small markets, cash machine, artisans selling their goods, etc. The walk from the apartment to other major attractions in Rome is very doable and pleasant. The only area of concern is for people with mobility/access issues, as the stairs going to the main bedroom would be difficult for someone old or with stability issues. Overall, we loved it.
A room with a view in a 18th century palazzo with character!
This was our first experience with Airbnb and we could not have asked for a better host as Elisabetta. She answered all our questions prior to our trip. A few days before we arrived in Rome she sent us clear and precise indications on how to get at 'The Suite', where she welcomed us. She provided us a map of the neighbourhood and a list of nearby shops and restaurants, which was very useful. Elisabetta arranged private transfers to and from the airport which was quick, easy and comfortable! Elisabetta was a great host, communicating with her was easy and she responded really quickly. All the arrangements were flexible.
Elisabetta's 'Suite' is precisely as lovely as it looks on the photo's. The Suite is ideal for a couple, the room was clean and the bed very comfortable; the only room that is a little lacking is the bathroom. The ancient wooden ceiling is quite low in the bathroom and you barely can stand in the tub to take a shower. But it was fine for us!
The neighbourhood is nice and friendly, with good connections, lots of restaurants and lively atmosphere (but not so quiet at night) and is within easy reach of the major sites (15/30 minutes easy walk and with some research on bus routes, even quicker, though we definitely prefer walking/wandering).
"Ancient Trastevere" is an excellent and great place to stay in Rome - highly recommended! We were also very satified with our first experience with airbnb.
