Interaction with Guests
The apartment is at your exclusive disposal but we will always be present at a distance with the maximum discretion for any need ! From the moment of the first contact until the end of your stay and if you need even later, we are always ready to help you and available 24/24 hours by telephone or with instant Airbnb's messaging.
The day of check-in we will welcome you showing every corner of the apartment and providing you with a map of Rome with lots of information and advice in order to better plan your stay !
Our apartment is located on the border between the districts of San Giovanni and the Esquilino and the Colosseum area.
Airbnb, despite our requests to modify the informations, makes a wrong description of the Esquilino, just merely describing the chaotic area around the train station "Termini". We are at 2 metro stops from Termini Station and the Esquilino area is as big as a small town !
Our area is very quiet and safe. In particular, our street is very quiet, ensuring complete relax at night. At the same time, just over the corner you will find any kind of shop for every need, from the bar to the restaurant, from the enoteca specializes in italian wines to supermarkets and groceries. Not lacking banks and pharmacies, well ... there is everything !
To report, the excellent traditional restaurants near the Colosseum, at less than 10 minutes walk. An experience that will remain in your heart ! Anyway, there are other excellent restaurants just turned the corner... in case you are very hungry !
We are very well connected with all the public transports, from the metro to the bus and tram ! We are 2 minutes walk from the metro and only two metro stops from the main train station "Termini" that serves as hub with the two roman airports and to any italian destination.
We are exactly behind the famous Holy Stair and the beautiful Basilica of St. John in Lateran, the seat of the Bishop of Rome, who is the Pope...
We are just 10 minutes walk from the Colosseum and the whole archaeological area of the Imperial Forums and, at the same time, our metro leads you in a few minutes directly to the Vatican and the main tourist sites, such as the Spanish Steps or Trevi Fountain ! However, if you like walking, every place of the center is also easily accessible on foot, walking through the beautiful streets steeped in the millenary history of Rome ! For those arriving by car, there is a private garage nearby or you can park along the road in both free or paid areas.

Dario was a very friendly and reliable host. He met us at the flat earlier than origianlly discussed, as our flight times had changed and showed us the flat and how everything works. He had useful tips and a practical map for us. When we asked him about a restaurant he mentioned (the next day via sms) the answer came within minutes. We felt well looked after and comfortable.
The flat has a perfekt location and is in close proximity to the tube, bus station and everything else really!
A short walk from the Colosseum and Forum Romanum makes it a great place to stay.
The accamodation itself is spacious and nicely decorated and in good working order.
We had a fantastic time. Thank you!
Dario was an excellent host from our initial contact right through to when we left where he kindly booked a taxi for us( too much luggage for the Metro). Dario was quick to reply to any questions I had and the reservation process went very smoothly. I found all the information provided on the AirBnB site was very accurate with the exception the flat in reality is bigger than appears in the photos. Dario met us at the flat and gave very thorough details on the flat and the area; suggestions on where to go and what to see. The bed was perfect! We had the best sleeps; cosy, comfortable and warm. Much more relaxing than in a hotel. The kitchen had all the utensils needed, even scissors to open packets. The washing machine was great to use. We bought our groceries near the entrance to the Metro at a small type of delicatessen and were able to buy everything we needed. Walking to the Colosseum was no problem and we were there in no time. We actually walked to all the major attractions with the exception of the Vatican/St Peter's Basilica when we caught the Metro. The Metro is very easy to use (2 lines; red or blue so easy to buy tickets and get on the correct train). Recommend you go to the church just around the corner from the flat ( the Papal Archbasilica of St John's Lateran) this is the Pope's church; its not too crowded (no lines waiting) and inside is a sight well worth your visit. I can fully recommend this apartment to others, your stay in Rome will be all the better.
We had a very nice stay at Dario's apartment. The apartment is very well located, we could see colosseum everyday under every light, such a pleasure! We strongly recommend this place!
Thank you Dario for your welcoming,
Elisabeth and Pierre
Dario's appartment was clean, quiet, spacious, comfortable and well equipped (hair dryer, kettle, cups etc).
It was close to the Coliseum (10 min walk).
Dario was very welcoming, he showed us good restaurants on the map, where to go out, and many other good advices for our stay in Roma.
Our flight was delayed (2 hours !), and we arrived late at night, but Dario waited for us, even if he had to get up early the next morning to go to work ! He was very kind.
Also Dario answers messages very quickly, which I really appreciated.
I would definitely recommand his place for a stay in Roma !
We loved Dario's place! Spacious, clean, and organized. They gave us a lot of helpful guides, restaurant suggestions, maps, phone numbers, etc. which was awesome as we had never been to Rome before. Overall a great experience!
We had a fantastic experience staying at Dario and Bea's flat. It was in a great location with great things to see, eat and do just a few minutes walk away. It was also really close to both the metro and multiple bus routes, so perfect for visiting all of Rome.
It was very comfortable and well equipped especially for cooking home prepared meals.
Very pleased we chose to stay there!
