Lovely and spacious apartment in the HEART of ROME, walking distance to the COLOSSEUM, Roman Forum and many other tourist sites such as the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore and San Giovanni in Laterano. The apartment is in a pleasant residential neighborhood (called Esquilino, one of the seven hills) yet just a short walk from the Termini train station, where you will arrive if you take the express train from Fiumicino Airport or arrive on a long distance train. A big and convenient supermarket is downstairs, another one 100 meters away on the same street! Right downstairs is an excellent bakery and on the corner is a popular restaurant. Other restaurants, shops, caffés, and gelato shops are nearby.
Besides being very convenient for walking to many tourists spots, the apartment is ideally situated for using public transportation. It's just 100 meters to the Metro A line, or a short walk to many bus and tram lines. It's a ten minute walk to Termini station and the Metro B line. From the Termini station you can take the express train to the Fiumicino airport.
The apartment is on the third floor, with a lift in the building.

Also we expect guests to be respectful with the neighbors and people, to avoid noises, to close the elevator's doors (otherwise it won't work and the neighbors would have to climb the stairs!!)

The trash-can should be emptied every time is full and the day of departure.

This was our first experience with airbnb and we were a little nervous not knowing what to expect. We not have worried. Luca was at the apartment to greet us and explain how everything worked. He also answered some questions we had about travelling around Rome to various tourist destinations. The apartment was amazing. Spacious comfortable airy light close to the termini metro and the colosseum and forum. The air conditioning was a godsend as it was very hot during our visit. Thank you Luca. I highly recommend your place to any visitors to Rome
Perfect location and perfect host! The apartment had everything we needed and the air conditioning was a perfect escape from the hot sun!! The recommendations and guest books were a great help. We would highly recommend this place to our friends and family. An amazing trip to rome!
We just got back from Italy and wanted to write our review from our recent stay. This was our first experience in Italy and with airbnb. It was perfect! We arrived in Rome really early in the morning and Luca was so nice to let us drop our bags off at the apartment until check in. Luca was a great host, he communicated everything beforehand and met us for check in. He showed us how to use all the features in the apartment. It has everything you need for your home away from home and the washing machine was a life saver. The apartment location is perfect for exploring Rome. We walked from the train station and it was easy to find. It's on a quiet street with the metro just around the corner. The bakery downstairs has great food too! Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. Thanks for a great stay! We highly recommend this apartment.
Luca met us in the apartment at the appropriate time and was very nice and hospitable. He sent us the house manual prior to our visit and then gave us a rundown on everything in the apartment. The neighborhood is one stop away from the Roma Terminal and is easily walkable. The Coliseum is down the street and to the right (although you cannot see the Coliseum from the apartment window).
It was record heat in Rome but it was nice to come back to the apartment to sit in the aircon and relax. There were grocery stores nearby and we rented bikes from (website hidden). right down the street (orange bikes). We took them to the Vatican and Roma is very bike friendly so we could always lock them up properly.
We had a great stay at this apartment in Rome! The air conditioning was great for an afternoon siesta to beat the heat.
The apartment is very close to the termini stations: the hub of most transportation. It is only about a 10 minute walk.
There are lots of yummy food options available close by or a grocery store across the street.
The apartment is furnished with all the amenities of home including including a washer and videos about Rome. The wifi connection was solid giving us an opportunity to have reliable communication.
Luca was absolutely wonderful! His apartment was so conveniently located and perfect for all of the tourist attractions we wanted to visit. He was quick to respond to anything we messaged him before our arrival and during our stay. He recommended this wonderful restaurant down the street that we absolutely loved! If we ever return to Rome, we will definitely be staying at Luca's apartment again.
Luca's apartment is super comfortable as Luca has thought about every little aspect in advance. It is beautifully furnished, tastefully decorated and we loved staying in it.
We are a family of husband, wife and teenage daughter and spent 3 nights at Luca's apartment.
It is easily accessible by Metro and you can walk from here to the Colosseum and Roman Forum. If you are wiling to walk for 30 -45 minutes, you can also walk to the Pantheon, the Trevi fountain and the Spanish steps besides most of the museums.
Luca was also kind enough to help with a taxi booking and provided clear instructions to reach the apartment. He was present during the check in and our check out was hassle free
We are happy to recommend this apartment.
About the Host, Luca
I am a scientist who loves music, arts and photography. I have lived for 5 years in San Diego, California and, since then, my heart belongs to both US and Italy. Quite different cultures, I have to admit, but probably one fills the gap of the other.
I have decided to return to Rome because I truly love the Eternal city, its beauty and its charm. I couldn't live anywhere else. I always hope that my guests will share this feeling about this amazing city.
