About This Listing
Wonderful attic in one of the most beautiful districts of Rome. Located in the Via del Pellegrino- Pilgrim's way from the route walked anciently by the pilgrims to get to St. Peter- this stunning penthouse features two amazing terraces for rewarding moments in the sky.
The apartment has everything required for an unforgettable stay in the "Eternal City": 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a wide living room, a fully equipped kitchen, 2 splendid terraces, 1 with sofa and 1 with dining table.
The house has been recently completely renewed and is very elegantly furnished. Rich with prestigious and sophisticated items and great artistic value pieces. The apartment is very quiet and elegant, noiseless, charming and comfortable.
The splendid location in the very neighboorhood of Campo de Fiori is what makes this accomodation an ideal place to know Rome and its beauties. At few steps from your front door the everyday open market will be the amazing starting point for exploring Rome just by foot. From here you won't need public transport at all, since all the interest sites of the city are at walking distance. And then after your wandering through the magnificient attractions and the historical relics it will be an incomparable pleasure to have your rest in the beautiful terraces.
How to get here from Fiumicino airport and Termini station:
- From Fiumicino airport: take the train FL1 that brings to Termini station (15€), and then the bus number 64 ("Piazza della Stazione di San Pietro" direction) until "Corso Vittorio Emanuele / Navona" stop (10 stops). Get off and continue on foot for 3 minutes.
- If you prefer, I can arrange a car for you from the airport to the apartment
The house is very elegant and well furnished.
We expect our guest love the accomodation and be careful with the items and the furnishments.
We also kindly ask our guests to give water to the beautiful plants and flowers in the terrace. In case the guests are not like to do this, we'll agree a daily time to come to the apartment
and do it ourselves.
For arrival after 20.30 an extra fee of € 35 is required. You can pay the late check-in fee cash directly to your greeter.
I would like to start by thanking Emiliano and Maria for making the booking of our trip an absolute pleasure. Any request or email was responded to efficiently and promptly. Thank you!!!
Now for the apartment - we couldn't have asked for a most centrally located spot. Absolutely loved the Piazza Campo de Fiori just steps from our front door great shops, markets and restaurants. An easy walk to any of the amazing sights Rome has to offer - never walked more than 20 minutes to get anywhere. As has been noted in other reviews the steps were a daily challenge and getting the luggage up and down was a feat indeed. We have had porters in other locations which was very helpful and maybe something to consider. We absolutely loved the two balconies and used them every day for breakfast, drinks, eating, sleeping and just relaxing. There has been comments in other reviews about the noise from the Piazza but for us was never a problem and added to the atmosphere and experience of Rome. The apartment it's self was very well equipped and the general ambience was lovely, relaxed and very homely, however if I am being completely honest the kitchen is possibly due for a face lift, in saying that it did not detract in any way from our trip. Thank you both very much for your hospitality and we will definitely recommend your magnificent apartment.
El barrio muy lindo, un poco ruidoso de noche. El departamento tal cual la página. Muy bien decorado y todo fumciona perfecto. Muy lindas las terrazas. tener en cuenta que hay que subir 4 pisos por escalera, lleven poco equipaje.
Die Kommunikation lief von Anfang an schnell und reibungslos. Emiliano hat sogar den Flughafentransfer zu einem sehr guten Preis organisiert. Das Penthouse ist noch schöner als auf den Bildern. Die Lage ist für einen Besuch Roms ideal. Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten sind zu Fuss zu erreichen und rund um Campo de Fiore findet man einfach alles um sich in Rom wohlzufühlen !.
Obgleich so zentral und "Mitten im Leben" ist es im Penthouse über den Dächern angenehm ruhig. Allerdings hat das Haus keinen Aufzug, aber die Vorfreude lässt einen die 88 Stufen leicht erklimmen:)
Nachbarn haben wir nicht wahrgenommen, kein Lärm, etc. !
Rundum eine Empfehlung, wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen!
We've just returned from the perfect Roman trip, in the perfect Roman apartment, thanks to our gracious hosts, Emiliano and Maria. The very elegant, yet homey decor, with 2 terraces, will be the centre of our memories of Campo de Fiori and Rome. The photo's didnt do it justice. It offered everything needed for the ideal vacation, a market, to cook the most delicious fresh produce, a bevie of outstanding restaurants and a home away from home to return to after a long day. Walkable to every Roman tourist destination was the perfect opportunity to discover more of this magnificent city. Communication and the level of support and local suggestions from Emiliano was outstanding. We loved it and hope to return one day. This was my first Airbnb experience, I usually stay in hotels for security but the ease of this experience has opened my eyes to the possibility I can have something that feels like a home away from home.
Again molte gracie, many thanks, Emilinao and Maria
The apartment is tastefully appointed and very well located. It is very comfortable for two people; although there are two bedrooms and baths, it might feel a little tight for four. The two terraces are a major selling point. There are 84 steps to the top, but by the time we left they were getting easier and easier. Some people have complained about the noise; the Campo certainly is a hot spot at night, but we did not find noise a problem. For two people, the price was a little rich, but we would recommend this apartment.
We have been to Rome several times but this was our first time self-catering (although we've self-catered many times elsewhere in Italy). We chose this flat because it had those 3 ingredients vital for a good stay: location, outside space, & air-conditioning. The latter two were vital because our week was hot! The location is unbeatable, especially if you are new to Rome since you are right within the historic centre and most of the obligatory sights are within walking distance; it's lovely to stroll out after your evening meal and enjoy the Campo/Farnese and/or stroll over the Corso to the Navona or Rotunda.
We found Emiliano very responsive to our emails and got rapid answers to all of our queries. He arranged taxis to and from Fiumicino, which took much of the stress out of what was a family holiday with our two kids. The flat itself is very well-equipped for an Italian residence - it even had a kettle - something we've usually found lacking - so we were able to have our English tea. Importantly, kitchen knives were sharp (something we've also found lacking elsewhere) so cooking wasn't a problem, and the oven, hob etc all worked fine. Many Italian flats use rather old-fashioned demand boilers and this one is no different: when we had a problem getting hot-water, Emiliano responded very quickly, came 'round, and showed us the "trick" necessary to get it to work; all was fine.
As other reviews have noted, yes the flat is up a lot of stairs but that's the price you pay for having a top floor location (noone creaking around over your head) and great views from the terraces - Michelangelo's Farnese cornice is visible from the back terrace; we always rent top-floor. The flat is well-proportioned, the TV and wi-fi worked fine, and the air-con was very effective. The smaller bedroom does lack air-con, but can be cooled via the living room unit. Leaving windows open is risky because, as everywhere in Italy it seems, the mosquitos will enter and make a meal of you. There is a lot of hubbub on the terraces, especially at the front because it's just metres from Campo De'Fiori, but the double glazing is very effective so we were able to sleep fine once windows were closed and we were not disturbed. The vibrancy of this area is one of its main attractions so don't expect it to be quiet outside.
The only real downside for us was that the fabulous food market of 20 years ago has apparently degenerated into a tourist trap; there are as many stalls selling pretty pasta and souvenirs as there are local produce. For example, there used to be several fish stalls but these seem to have vanished? However, remember you are just minutes from Trastevere via Ponte Sisto - when we ate out or did a "big" food shop, we did it there...and the cafes are much cheaper.
All in all, highly recommended.
The apartment made the trip! I completely changed my normal visit to Rome by utilizing the two terraces and kitchen more than anticipated. Having the Campio del Fiori market at your doorstep inspires any cook. Lunch on the terrace with a view of Michaelangelo's cornice at the Farnesse palace on one side or the side facade of the first Renaissance building in Rome, the Chanceleria on the other was memorable and drew me back to the apartment to simply enjoy living in this magnificent city.
