The Space

One of the few houses inside the newly-established world largest Archaeological Park, l'Edera al Colosseo (the Ivy at the Colosseo) is a charming apartment located in the heart of the city of Rome, via del Cardello, well known for its view of the Colosseo. Many of the most memorable sights of the city, such as the Colosseo, Imperial Fori, and Circus Maximus, are just a few minutes away, but any corner of the city is easy to reach. L'Edera al Colosseo has excellent connections by public transport (metro and bus), to the railway stations (Termini and Tiburtina) and to the airports (Ciampino and Fiumicino).

The apartment has recently been refurbished. It has a spacious room, a small kitchen and a bathroom. The walls are lined with pine wood panels and the original XVII century antique chestnut beams are visible on the ceiling. The interiors are simple and elegant, with a pratical double sofa-bed, a table with stools and a wardrobe. At l'Edera al Colosseo you will find autonomous heating, fridge, freezer, gas cooker, oven, cutlery, fan, hair dryer, bath tub and shower. Bed clothing and towels are provided as well.
We speak English and French and we will be happy to help visitors with maps of the city and all suggestions you may want for a pleasant stay in Rome.

Our neighborhood, Rione Monti, is one of the most vibrant yet safe of the Eternal City. While you stroll along ancient cobbled streets, you will find amazing italian and international restaurants, cosy Pizzerias, wonderful wine bars, unforgettable ice creams etc...
The area has recently been included in the world largest Archaeological Park. For all info visit:

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The location was amazing! It was near the colosseum and the metro stop, so any touristy spot was easy to get to. The hill above the colosseum is a beautiful maze of cobblestone streets with a number of restaurants.

    The apartment is cozy, clean, and comfortable. Everything is in good working condition. It's also on the first floor, up just a short flight of stairs, so easy to get luggage up and down.

    Giulia was very helpful! She sat down with us upon arrival, gave us a map, and showed us where a number of points of interest are, as well as have us some great tips for restaurants. She made herself available anytime and, the one time we did have a question, responded immediately. She even set up a taxi to take us to the airport.

    I highly recommend staying here!

  • We couldn't have asked (email hidden) and apartment in Rome! The studio is located right next to the Colosseum, meaning we could come back and take a short break after visiting the sites before heading to the Vatican City. Everything in the studio worked as they should and it was very comfortable. Giulia gave us really detailed and helpful recommendations for places to visit and places to eat, which helped us a lot as we didn't really have the chance to do our planning before arriving in Rome. What's more they weren't the touristy places so it really adds to the experience. Giulia also helped us book a taxi on the day we left, and was very flexible and accommodating with our checkin/out times as there were no guests the day before and the day we left. We definitely recommend staying at Giulia's studio in Rome!

  • Guilia was an amazing host. She waited for us at the apartment even though our train was late arriving. She sat us down and showed us all the wonderful spots for us to see while we spent 2 days in Rome. She provided us with some amazing restaurants nearby to try. We tried one of them (the one with a cat on the card) and it was amazing. We also loved the restaurant on the corner right outside the apartment. Very good and excellent service. The location of the flat could not have been better. The Colosseum and Roman Forum are just steps outside the front door. Guilia provided breakfast and snacks in the apartment which was nice when we needed a late night bite. She was flexible with check in and holding our luggage so we could explore the city without it before our flight. She booked us a cab to the airport which was really awesome of her. Overall she was an amazing host. We will stay there again on our next visit to Rome and look forward to meeting her again.

  • Amazing place! Really perfectly located, 2 minutes walking from the colosseum, 1 min from the metro, 2 min from plenty of restaurants and bars. When we arrived Giulia was so kind with us and she gave us some useful tips about the area. The apartment was clean, comfortable, very calm with everything you need. Perfect for a couple retreat :-)
    Next time for sure we'll come back there!

  • We loved staying in this little apartment for 11 days. It's a nice neighborhood, and Giulia (email hidden)e gave us some great recommendations for restaurants and side trips, and supported anything we needed. The room is a little funky, not like a hotel, but it is clean and the low bed turned out to be very comfortable. Being on the first floor (second level) was nice, because we could keep the windows open for fresh air and it was still secure. We got used to the street noise and felt it was just part of the Rome experience. The shower is huge by European standards, with plenty of hot water.

  • The Staying at Giulia’s Lédera al Colosseo, went just perfectly.
    Giulia is a charm and very nice person.
    The city area where the apartment is results perfects in terms of visiting the Coliseum and other monuments apart of being very closed to two Metro Stations.
    The neighborhood where is placed is quite nice in terms of enjoying the best Italian cuisine.
    Do not forget to follow integrally Giulia’s suggestions regarding the restaurants and historical monuments in the area.
    The apartment is perfect for a couple. The wi-fi works very well so Ipad Books or magazines is recomended (no tv included). Bathroom has everything you'll need and hot water function perfectly.
    Relax and enjoy Rome. You will stay in the Heart of this lovely city. Giulia will wellome you!!!

Hi, I am half French and half Italian, so I like to stay in a touristic "domain"! I hope to do this in the future as a full-time job. Besides my work, my most important interest is in my little Davide, my son!
