Apartment in Rome historical center, glamorous flat in old mansion (sec.XVI),close to Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Farnese and Piazza Navona,is a city square in Rome, Italy. It is built on the site of the Stadium of Domitian, built in 1st century AD, and follows the form of the open space of the stadium.The ancient Romans came there to watch the agones ("games"), and hence it was known as 'Circus Agonalis' (competition arena).

This apartment is ideally located in the heart of Rome. We could walk to Piazza Navona, the Pantheon and the Vatican. The apartment is also spacious and comfortable. We had five people and with three big bedrooms, a full sized lounge room and an eat in kitchen there was space for everyone. It is nice to have a washing machine too for longer stays. Luca was always easy to contact via email and he replied to all our questions. For people who only spoke English it was a little difficult not having extra information on arrival, such a places to eat and where to buy groceries but the guide books in the apartment were a big help. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to people who are looking to discover Rome by living like a local. It is a character filled apartment and so well located. We loved it.
Luca's apartment is very well located, and is so big! There was no problem getting the key, and Luca is very responsive. The apartment is fairly dark during the day, but then again it's Rome! So one shouldn't be inside too much anyway. Overall it was a wonderful stay.
Location, location, location! This is a great apartment for anyone looking for the perfect location in Rome. It's comfortable walking distance to the Vatican area and the fun, lively night-time area of the Campo dei Fiore market. The other major sightseeing areas are walkable for those who love walking in the city, or getting on the hop-on, hop-off Roma Sightseeing bus with the pick-up point at the Vatican bus-stop. Restaurants, grocery store, you-name-it -- it's all close by. The apartment itself is spacious and comfortable. Luca and Lucia have tried to provide all the amentities, like hair dryers and converters!. It's a no-frills place (a little funky plumbing by American standards, the furnishings are a bit weary, beds are so-so, and the apartment does require some stairs [1 1/2 flights], but there is nothing better than the large living room at the end of the day for a good glass of wine and chatting about the events of the day. It's large enough to be comfortable for at least 4 adults and up to 6 + 1 kid in the master bedroom with mom and dad. Three bedrooms, nice kitchen with eat-in space, comfy living room. No real view, per se, but a cool old building and a beautiful church across the street = a great stay.
Perfect place to stay in Rome! The location was great, and the apartment is beautiful. Luca was very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with...Everyone was friendly and welcoming. The kitchen was well appointed and there is lots of great food shopping nearby...which was great since I love to cook. Plenty of space too! We will definitely return :)
The apartment is great, very roomy, well equipped, great location. We had a fantastic stay there.
great location. prompt communication with host
Appartamento bello, ampio (più di quanto sembri dalle foto pubblicate) e in una posizione fantastica: un edificio storico a due passi da Campo dei Fiori. In più Luca e Lucia sono gentilissimi e molto disponibili. Insomma, un ottimo soggiorno.
The apartment of Luca Tirello fully accommodated the wishes of me and my family to a pleasant and homely apartment in the center of Rome! A GREAT apartment, which I can warmly recommend for future guests - with plenty of place for 6 people. The very authentic surroundings offer a feast of entertainment and culture and a warm welcoming atmosphere. We had a perfect holiday!
Die Lage der Wohnung ist super. Wenige Meter auf den Marktplatz (aus dem Haus und links- geradeaus und bei den beiden Brunnen sehen aus wie Badewannen links). Dort gibt es auch Bäcler, Metzger, etc. Der Supermarkt ist auch in wenigen Meter zu Fuss zu erreichen (aus dem Haus und rechts, geradeaus und dann nach ca. 200 Meter links. Der Eingang des supermarktes ist klein.
Die Wohnung selber ist wie auf den Bildern (website hidden) ist ausreichend Geschirr vorhanden. Salz, Pfeffer ist auch vorhanden. Alles funktioniert. Die Dusche in dem kleinen Zimmer ist allerdings nicht funktionsfähig. Aber das andere Bad funktioniert. Die Betten sind sehr klein. Mein Sohn musste sich die Matraze auf den Boden legen. Wir hatten Glück, in der Zeit als wir anwesend waren, war eine Baustelle vor dem Haus. So hatten wir keinerlei Autolärm. Zur Bushaltestelle sind es ca 300 Meter. Zum Vatikan läuft man 12 Minuten. Zur spanischen Treppe ca. 15 Minuten. Alles ist zwar zu Fuss erreichbar. Doch nicht jeder läuft gerne den ganzen Tag. Die Tickets für Euro 1.50 gelten für 100 Minuten. Das mit dem Schlüssel hat super (website hidden) gibt einen Hausmeister. Dieser hat im EG seine Räumlichkeiten. Auch ohne italienische Kenntnisse konnte man sich verstehen. Haben uns auch ein Taxi für den Rückflug organisiert. Alles in allem hatten wir eine gute Zeit in der Wohnung. Internet hat auch geklappt.
My parents and I stayed at Luca and Lucia's apartment a few weeks ago and completely adored the place. The check in process was easy. The apartment is spacious, well decorated, clean..overall just amazing! Looks even better than the pictures. Great neighbourhood, lovely walks to major attractions..we really enjoyed it and hope to visit again next year!
