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.

The apartment is big and exactly the same as the photos and descriptions. It is beautiful and clean, there are some tea bags, coffee and chocolate that you are free to use. Virginia is very nice and helpful, she nearly used half an hour to introduce Roma to us. She provided many suggestions of both transportation, place of tourism and restaurant to us. We can just follow her suggestions to travel in Roma easily. Thank you for offering us a fantastic moment in Roma.
My group had an amazing time at Virginia and Fabio's apartment. The apartment is the perfect size for a group of five. It is clean and well stocked. We loved the neighborhood because it is just the right distance from all of the important attractions. It is like a little oasis from the busy city. Virginia is very hospitable and good at communicating details. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!!!
El apartamento es comodisimo, muy limpio, sus camas de 10, equipado con todo lo que te pueda hacer falta ,situado en una zona universitaria llena de bares para comer y cenar a buen precio.
Buena ubicación para coger el transporte público , la única pega , solo a tener en cuenta, es que esta en un cuarto piso.
Das von uns gebuchte Appartement war nicht frei. Die Toilette wurde von den vorhergehenden Gästen defekt hinterlassen. Virginia hat uns ein anderes Appartement organisiert, welches super war. Auch ca. 10 min. zur Metro Tiburtina. 2 Schlafzimmer, 2 Badezimmer, Wohnzimmer und Küche. Neu renoviert. Super sauber. Es war sogar Kaffee, Schoggi, Oel, Essig da, das wir brauchen durften. Der Empfang war sehr herzlich und Letizia hat uns viele wertvolle Infos zu Rom mitgegeben und auch die Wohnung erklärt. Auch war grad ein Supermarkt nebenan, und bei "da Mario" haben wir köstlich gegessen. Unser ganzer Aufenthalt in Rom war ein voller Erfolg. Wir können Virginia und Fabio nur danken. Alles war tip top. Gerne wieder, wenn wir nach Rom kommen. Es war super!
Dear Karin, I really thank you for the amazing words you used to describe your experience!
I really hope to host you in my apartment in the future, but I will also be very happy if you wish to come back to Cassiopea Apartment, where you stayed!
I wish you all the best!
Beautiful and spacious apartment in Rome within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the metro. We were a little late arriving at the apartment due to complications at the airport but Virginia and Fabio just left the key with the neighbours which made it easy to get in. Great stay and would recommend this to friends!
San Lorenzo è un bellissimo quartiere di Roma, che consiglio vivamente per chiunque voglia respirare l'atmosfera romana autentica. L'appartamento di Virginia è la sistemazione ideale in questo quartiere, perchè è ai piani alti, per cui silenziosissimo, nonostante San Lorenzo brulichi di vita di giorno e di notte. Ampio, luminoso, pulito e attrezzato con qualsiasi cosa che possa servirvi. Anche la cucina è ben attrezzata, ma vi consiglio di provare i ristorantini della zona durante il soggiorno, perchè meritano.
Come posizione è ottima: noi siamo arrivati alla stazione Tiburtina e con il bus in 10 minuti abbiamo raggiunto l'appartamento. In 15 minuti a piedi, siete nel centro di Roma. Grazie a Virginia e a suo marito anche per le utili indicazioni prima e durante la nostra permanenza.
