The property is within walking distance to Piazza Navona, Fontana di Trevi, Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Campo dei Fiori and across the Tiber river to enchanting Trastevere, famous for its narrow streets and cozy restaurants.
It's a neighborhood where you can walk everywhere… to restaurants, bars and clubs, great shopping and all forms of public transportation.
The location simply could not be better as the area is one of the most famous and picturesque of the historical center, surrounded by archaeological sites, artisan and antique shops, theatres, traditional bakeries, colourful markets, designer stores, boutiques, restaurants, typical Italian cafes and winebars where you can flip away your tiredness over a good glass of wine. Just a few meters from the property you'll find the famous mediaeval basilica church Santa Maria in Cosmedin (or de Schola Graeca). The church was built in the 6th century over the remains of the Templum Herculis Pompeiani in the Forum Boarium and Its bell tower is the tallest medieval belfry in Rome. In the porch of this mediaeval Church, on the south side, there is one of Rome's symbols, the so-called 'Bocca della Verita' Mouth of Truth that draws many visitors: this is a large round stone, with a grotesque face in relief with holes through the eyes and the nose, and a larger opening for the mouth.
While in Rome you may like to re-enact the scene in the film Roman Holiday and put your hand over the Bocca della Verità or Mouth of Truth which hangs in the portico of the Church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin.If a jealous lover wanted to test their partner’s fidelity, they would put their hand in the mouth of the stone river god - it was thought that a liar would have his hand bitten off but the faithful lover would go untouched.
And this 'test' is still a must for all tourists and the queue of visitors stretched right down the street, for to have their photo taken with their hand in the mouth of the statue.
It’s a fun thing to do though and everyone seemed to emerge with their arm intact - why not give it a try?
The apartment is right in the historic centre of Rome and from here you can walk to every important interesting point without public transport.
