Interaction with Guests
My family and I really love to travel, AirBnb offered us the opportunity to do it when we stay home too. That means we love to chat and spent our time with guests, we'll be happy to share with you all teh tips and infos you need, as a glass of wine when you'll be back from your wandering.
But we understand what privacy means, too. If you'll prefer to have your own space and time, we won't bother in any way. You'll feel free to share part of your time with us as to stay by your own, astonished by the beauty of the eternal city.
Monte del Gallo is a kind of small town inside the city center. As the street is a dead end, almost no cars get around (above all by night) and you'll find real romans living in the neighborhood (how peculiar!). I felt in love with this area when I arrived in Rome from Milan, I guess you'll feel my feelings.
San Pietro train station, useful to go and come from Fiumicino airport and Termini train station, is 3 minutes walking distance. Bus nr. 64 last stop is just in from the station, and it should carry you in the heart of Rome in 10 to 15 minutes. Piazza Navona, campo de Fiori and Trastevere are within 15 to 20 minutes walking distance. Several bus stop, to reach almost all the city highlights, are just around the corner. In the area there are three pizzeria, some restaurants (one of those is my favourite) and bar to eat or for a snack.
Check-out 11.00 a.m., check-in from (phone number hidden) p.m.), but we can deal a earlier arrive. No animals allowed. Smoking allowed ONLY in balcony, never inside the apartment.
You and your family are awesome people. Thank you for making us feel like home when we were on the opposite side of the world!
The room was exactly as described and the apartment was beautiful. Hosts were really welcoming with great hospitality. They gave us privacy but at the same time were always willing to answer to our questions and help us with anything we needed. The neighborhood itself was not too exciting but it was with walking distance (15 mins) to beautiful Trastevere and the city center. Highly recommended!
We arrived late in the evening due to a delayed train ride. Vinicio graciously waited for us without any pressure. He makes you feel at home in his own house. Good conversation too. I would have loved to spend more time with him and his family if only we had more time. The room and bathroom were clean as expected. 5 minute walk to bus stop. Very close to the Vatican. I would definitely recommend this place.
Back again, everything is still good and it feels like living with an old friend~ thanks for you all and best wishes to All the family members!
great host with great breakfast and great location！everything's good here！my wife and I booked this house when we first arrived in Roma， the perfect experience let us book it again～ so it is a strong recommendation one in airbnb～
We felt very welcome by Vinicio and his family. We were provided with maps and information about Rome and recommendations for restaurants nearby when we arrived. The room and private bathroom is as shown in the pictures and are clean and comfortable. The apartment is a short walk to the Vatican/St Peter's Square as well as the train station/bus stop. Breakfast included a choice of cereal, toast, fruit, ham and yogurt.
Overall we had a very pleasant stay with Vinicio and his family. It felt like we were staying at home. I would highly recommend this space and would certainly stay with Vinicio again during future trips to Rome.
About as friendly a host as you could hope for, the flat and room catered to our needs perfectly. Within a fifteen minute walk to the Vatican Museum getting back from our evening visit, which was cracking, was easy. Breakfast hit the spot – and Vinicio's restaurant recommendations around the corner from the flat were a welcome haven of tasty food reasonably priced in comparison to the joyless food around the main tourist sites. Vinicio was a cracking host and ended up curating half our holiday, with a recommendation of a series of Etruscan hill top towns which were truly stunning.
About the Host, Vinicio
Hi, we are Vinicio (the bald one in the profile photo, now balder), Elia (the small one, now 9) and Francesca (the photographer). We love to travel and meet people from all over the world. I'm a writer (scripts for TV, above all), Francesca is a teacher, she teaches italian language to foreign people. We'll love to share our apartment with people with same interest: reading, cinema, music and above all travel. Although neither me nor Francesca are from Rome (I'm from Milan, she's from Sicily) we used to live here since 20 years and we feel definitely romans (Elia was born here). With our help, if you want, you should discover a lot of places out from the usual touristic spots. And sometimes, depending on free time in my job, I'll love to be a guide for you (absolutely for free). We can speak in english (ok, what I suppose seems to be english...) and french. And, like our spanish friends used to say, a little of itanol, a mix between italian and spanish, enough to understand and let us be understood.
