The Space

The apartment is located on the second floor (first for Italy) of an elegant, recently renovated building built in the early 1900's. It is only a few steps from the subway line A station "Ottaviano - S.Pietro", in the heart of the tony Prati neighborhood and faces a nice and silent internal courtyard. The entrance of the apartment is from a private stairs from the court itself. This gives the apartment, especially at night, a magical atmosphere which impressed my younger son who kept naming the place, "The Mysterious Home"...

The apartment has two big window-doors leading to the long balcony and composed by two large rooms with high ceilings (about 4 m). One of the rooms is partially occupied by a fancy and romantic mezzanine hosting a loft style bedroom (the size of the mattress is 150x190 cm).

A comfortable convertible sofa bed allows to host two additional guests. By request, a fifth guest may be hosted in a convertible single bed.

The apartment is provided with every kind of comfort: the kitchen is fully equipped with pans, dishes and accessories, and it has a gas stove, electric oven, microwave oven, refrigerator and vent hood.

The bathroom has its own window, a comfortable 70*90 cm. shower, a large sink, wc, bidet, hairdryer and a washing machine. There are towels, blankets, sheets, a flat screen TV, radio, CD player, heating, unlimited hot water, iron and ironing board, vacuum cleaner. Moreover:

>>> Complimentary mobile phone with Italian SIM card
>>> Free Internet WIFI ADSL

There is no air conditioning since the thick stone walls of the building protect the apartment during the hot season. There is a big ceiling fan in each of the two rooms.

Some pieces of antique furniture and a few Italian art reproductions inspire a charming and particular atmosphere: on the bedroom ceiling there is a Mantegna's "Bridal Chamber" reproduction while a full size Leonardo's "Annunciation" welcomes the guests at the home entrance.

The neighborhood is full of life. Just around the corner there are good restaurants and fantastic pizzerias, a fruit market, grocery stores, bar, supermarket. Via Cola di Rienzo, a few blocks away, is one of the main places for the Roman shopping.

The Vatican Museums, St. Peter and Castel S. Angelo are within walking distance. The city center can be easily reached with a short promenade or by subway (just three stops to the Spanish Steps).

Guest Access

Interaction with Guests

I will welcome guests in person unless some emergency arises. Should I not be there, some close friend of mine will come to guide you through the apartment and the neighborhood.

Getting Around

The neighborhood is served by the subway and by several lines of buses.
