About this listing
The apartment is in an 19th century restored building, along one of the most fashionable street of the city, and the oldest neighborhood, Rione Monti, just right on its side. The possibility to live the two souls of Roma, La Grande Bellezza !
Ciao! We're Alice e Gabriele, in our 30's, freelance journalists, we love to travel and write!
We live in this nice apartment in the ANCIENT HEART of Roma: Rione Monti (but we're often on the road or placed in another nearby house where we've the study to work). Monti is close to almost everything: the Termini central station, Esposizioni's Palace, COLOSSEO, Foro Romano, Quirinale Palace, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Venezia square, Corso street... served by every TRANSPORT you like: bus, train, subway, taxi, bike/scooter/car sharing and rental.
We always move by foot!
The apartment has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and one common area: a living room / kitchen with tv and breakfast corner.
So from here you can book the BIG DOUBLE GUEST BEDROOM with PRIVATE INDOOR BATHROOM (and a typical italian whirpool ;-)
Note that the room can accommodate 2 people and 1 baby (we have a CRIB 0-4 years that enter in the room). For a possible THIRD PERSON is considered the SOFA in the living room (person no taller than 1.80 mt!) separated from the kitchen by a screen. The bathroom to use is only the one booked.
Around the house there're the PICTURES by Alice's brother, young emergent artist (on internet look for Jacopo Rinaldi portfolio!).
In front of you, a typical italian FIRE STATION, builded in 1933!
Free access to the living room / kitchen and tv. We always leave something for BREAKFAST in a corner of the table and in the fridge.
Interaction with guests
Normally one of us or both will be waiting at home for your check-in (and possibly also for your check-out) and generally always keep in touch via Airbnb App or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) for any question, advice, need...!
About this neighborhood, Rione Monti, we love that, just crossing Via Nazionale, full of people and trendy shops, you enter in a PARALLEL UNIVERSE, the ancient part of Roma where there's silence, nice shops, markets, little streets and squares and the COLOSSEO's view just in the background (you can see it especially walking on Via Dei Serpenti).
PUBLIC TRANSIT is everywhere:
BUS stop and TAXI station just downstairs.
2 METRO stops nearby: REPUBBLICA, line A, (it's the closest, at the beginning of Via Nazionale, up to the big rounded square with a fountain in the center) and CAVOUR, line B, (going straight inside Rione Monti).
The PARKING situation is the weak point: being the ancient part of Roma, Rione Monti is protected by a limited traffic system (ZTL) that is very uncomfortable for who has a car without permession to enter: the closest parking area is in Piazza della Repubblica and it's a little long-term lot.
On the contrary if you have a RENTAL CAR with permission you can get into and Via Genova is a near and good street to park.
There's also the CAR and MOTORBIKE SHARING option with Enjoy, Car2Go, Uber, BlaBlaCar, Scooterino...
Other things to note
Photos show the changes of the house since 2012... and the works and objects of friends and family!
CHECK-IN / OUT are flexible, which means that we can decide together. So tell us your plans and we'll try to satisfy you!
we allow PETS.
We have no rules against SMOKE 'cause we smoke sometimes (tobacco, less smelling of cigarettes). However we always like to keep the rooms aerated and we ask you to do the same. If you are not smokers, tell us and we'll avoid smoking in the common areas. Thank you!
