The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

You can reach the historical city centre by using the bus # 492 or the metro A from Vittorio station.
Or you walk to the Coliseum and St. John in Lateran Cathedral within 20 minutes.
You can reach the apartment from the airport by inquiring for a transfer, using the bus from the airport to Termini station or the Leonardo Express direct train from Fiumicino Airport to Termini station, and then walk for 10 minutes.

Other Things to Note

Don't bring too heavy suit-cases as you will have to reach the 4th floor by climbing the stairs!
It' is an historical building and there is no elevator.

Check In
  • Virginia is a professional. She is a tour operator. We checked in very late, about 2 am in the morning. She welcomed us at that time. She gave us very detailed information about Rome and nearby. The house is very clear and comfortable. There are 2 restroom, one is inside a bedroom, other one is common. The flat is located at fifth floor and there is no lift. You will have to carry your luggage. Wi-fi was good. We found all we need in the kitchen, coffee, sugar, olive oil, spices. etc. We paid 2 € for each for everyday under city tax. We were 5 person and stayed 4 nights, which makes 40 € total. We didn't pay this tax in Florence and Venice, no one asked for this.

    The house is near the train station but a bit far from City Center, about 25 minutes to Coliseum by walk. But you can use Metro.

    One downside of the area is safety. There are slang and bums drinking around and fighting :) But we didn't get trouble.

    I strongly advise you to eat at the restaurant "Imperiale Ristorante Pizzeria" near Collesio, you can find it in trip adviser. My wife ate Cannelloni Spinachi (something like this :) ) which was wonderful. The staff is very kind. Price/Quality ratio is good I think.

    We had great time in Rome. Thank you Virgina.

  • The romakko apartment was a really nice apartment situated in a nice suburb in Rome. Near the train station and many good eats! Virginia was very kind in telling us all about the area and also recommending us good places to eat and arranging a shuttle to take us to the airport for our morning flight.

    The apartment itself was situated near a food market that sold really good fresh produce so you had the option to cook if you did not want to eat out. The apartment is spacious and had all the amenities needed.

    I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone arriving to Rome in a big group.

  • this is a lovely flat you can find everything you need. it is very clean, spacious and well decorated. the area is also very nice, i read some reviews before my travel that the area was unsafe. but it is not, really.
    we stayed in Romakko apt at the end of November and the flat was a little bit cold. the central heating was not working enough. there is an air conditioner in all the rooms. but the floor is always too cold.
    Victoria is also a great host, she gave us good advises about restaurants, museums, public transportations, etc. she is so sweet and helpful.
    we enjoyed our stay in Romakko and look forward to come back again.

  • Virginia nous a prévenu la veille de notre venue que son chauffe eau etait mort ( les précédents locataires ont fait nimporte quoi). Elle nous a donc trouvé une solution parfaite: l'appartement que sa soeur loue également pour des vacances, idéalement situé dans le centre historique via del banco di spirito santo. c'etait très propre, et charmant ( un peu bruyant, mais c'est ca de vivre à la romaine!). D'ici nous avons tout visité à pied. Un chouette week end entre filles!

  • The Romakko Apt was a wonderful place to stay for our three nights in Rome. The place was very comfortable for our party of four, with the 1/2 bathroom in the master bedroom, coordinating showers for the full bathroom was no problem at all. Virginia was very accomodating and responsive to all of our needs.

    Some might be put off by the area as it does have a lot of graffiti on the store fronts, but the place was nonetheless comfortable, quiet, and enjoyable. In fact, we loved the area and the accessibility of food, gelato, and late night drinks, getting a true feel for the city.

    We would highly recommend this place to anyone!

    Thanks again Virginia for your hospitality.
    Angela and party

  • Ons verblijf in mei 2013 in Rome in het appartement van Virginia en Fabio was bijzonder aangenaam. Hoewel het gebouw geen lift heeft en het appartement op de vierde verdieping gelegen is (84 treden), staat er tegenover dat er een heerlijke yacuzzi aanwezig is in de ruime badkamer, waarin je kuiten heerlijk gemasseerd worden :-)
    De ligging van het appartement is ongeveer 10 minuten wandelen van het Termini-metrostation. Dit betekent dat het appartement rustig gelegen is in een heerlijke studentenbuurt, en toch dichtbij het gemak van het openbaar vervoer. We zouden hier zó nogmaals willen verblijven.

Tour leader
Welcome to my profile! I was born in the eternal city in 1975! I traveled all around the world as traveling is my passion! That explains my job: I am a tour leader for English and Japanese speaking groups! My traveling brought me in any corner of the world and I learned to love each different culture, I believe that the more we travel the more we learn! And here comes why I opened this holiday apartment together with my husband Fabio: to welcome everyone who has the will to learn more about our city! Romakko Apartment is an experience of real life in a residential district of Rome, yet at footsteps of the historical centre. I will be more than happy to give you all the hints to enjoy your stay as much as possible!
