Interaction with Guests
We will provide all the useful information upon check-in regarding the neighborhood and the historical sites in general, being myself a tour leader do not hesitate to ask me questions about my city!
This beautiful apartment is located in a renewed building dated early 1900s, in the historical district named San Lorenzo. It occupies the early stretch of Tiburtina road (one of the historical ancienr Roman roads) starting from Termini railway station and ending at the Verano area. You can reach the Colosseum by walking downhill for less than 20 minutes!
Originally a working-class neighbourhood it has been a popular, left-oriented area. During WWII it was heavily bombed by Allied planes. Maria Montessori's first 3-6 age program was started in San Lorenzo in 1907. Today due to the vicinity of the La Sapienza University, it is increasingly assuming the character of a student and young artist district. Every evening, hundreds of young people descend on the area. Pizzerias, boutiques and other modern places are subsequently replacing the old popular workshops and small markets.
Close to the University La Sapienza, in the historically famous district of San Lorenzo, plenty of restaurants /pizzerias /discoes /bars /cafeterias /tobacconists /supermarkets /open air markets /chic and handcraft shops, very popular for night life yet very safe and lively.
You can reach the historical city centre by using the bus # 492 or # 71 to Corso st., Navona sq. Trevi fountain and the Vatican.
The nearest metro station is Vittorio Veneto line A toward Spanish Steps and Vatican city state.
