The apartment has been newly renovated to offer elegance, comfort and convenience to the most desirable attractions of the city center.
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.
The property is on the first floor of a 19th century historic building. After a day's sightseeing in the noise of a busy city, it is a great place to come home to. Walking through the main doors (off the street) into a lush garden full of trees and flowers, is such a pleasant surprise. Coming back here, in this oasis sheltered from the hustle and bustle, at the end of a long day gives you an instant sense of peace. The quiet found inside is unusual for this lively section of Rome. During the day, a security guard is present by the front gate. In addition to the gate (locked after dark), there are locked doors for both the complex and the apartment.
Only a couple of blocks away, there is a colorful, large open market and every morning can be found fine food, fresh produce, fruit, vegetables, wine, cheese and wonderful bread.

Fantastic location for an unforgettable holiday in Rome!
The entire apartment is for your own use.
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?

We took advantage of the offer to be collected on arrival at Fiumicino airport., which was great after a long day's travelling. Everything was explained at the apartment, including all the details of buses and trains The Coliseum apartment was a very convenient location not only to be able to walk to the Coliseum, also to Trastavere and all the great bars and restaurants. An easy bus outside the apartment to the Vatican too.
The apartment was all we expected, spacious, clean and comfortable, and very welcome breakfast supplies and coffee. A lovely environment, gardens and citrus trees.Considering the many families living in these lovely old apartments it was really quiet, only the occasional door slamming. If we return to Rome we know where to stay.
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour. L'appartement est bien situé, nous avons tout fait pratiquement à pieds, très calme, tout le confort et la personne qui nous a accueillis était vraiment sympa. Merci Vera, c'est avec plaisir que nous reviendrons.
Last week we spend 4 days in Vera's apartment. We are a Dutch family of four.
What we liked very much was that the communication before our stay was very good: always quick and friendly answers to our questions.
When we arrived in the apartment we were welcomed at the gate by a very friendly man, who showed us around. He gave us a very warm welcome, we immediately felt at home! We didn't quite understand all he said because he only spoke Italian (and we didn't), but by phoning his English speaking son, everything came clear in the end!
There were croissants waiting for us! This was very nice.
The location of this apartment is excellent! Everything you want, you can find in the neighborhood! The garden is so special! What struck us was that it was so quiet. We could sleep with windows open and not hear the city noises!
The description given on the site is good, it's all true, including the excellent pizzeria in the same building!
We hope we can come again.
We spent 3 nights here and we had a brilliant time. The location is perfect to stay to discover Rome. The flat is clean and well equipped, however the neighbours are a bit noisy. The host(s) welcoming and helpful. The restaurants and the shops are around the corner, the public transport is excellent. I recommend this place and we will use it again when we are visiting Rome again.
We spent great days in Rome and the apartment that Vera provided to us just made us to feel at home. The place is very quiet for who's coming with a family, the location was also a must. Very handy to head to the main touristic places. The bus 23 is just about 25 min away from Vatican and 716 links you to Ostiense station for whos arriving from Fiunicino airport.
Also, Piramid metro station is just 8 min away from the apartment.
The house had everything we needed, also supermarkets and good restaurants around.
Towels, a safer box, cleaning stuffs, all was provided and also the Rome map + a book with important informations about the city was very usefull.
We were 5 people and the house was well enough for us to feel confortable.
We had an excellent stay in Vera's lovely apartment while we were in Rome for a conference at the FAO (located quite nearby). The neighbourhood is a short walk away from lovely Trastevere area which meant delicious pizza at fairly reasonable prices. Be careful with the address though since Google maps first said it was located at Emperio 1 when it is in fact located on Via Marmorata. Other than this small confusion we had an incredible stay!
Mi primera experiencia con Airbnb no pudo ser mejor. El apartamento genial, las fotos hacen justicia, la verdad. Tiene de todo lo que puedas necesitar, incluso una carpeta con todo de información de Roma, mapas incluidos. Nosotros estuvimos 3 días y no cogimos ni un autobús ya que esta situado cerca de todos los sitios y por los alrededores hay algunas de las mejores pizzerías que probé.
Sin duda, un 10. Volveré.
