I'm highly recommended Piero's flat if you are planning to visit Rome. First of all, the flat was very spacious, nicely decorated, comfortable with everything you need (including the air-conditioning which was a wonderful luxury with August high temperatures in Rome !!!). Piero is a great guest, very available and willing to help, meticulous and do follow his recommendations in terms of local cafes/restaurants/places without any hesitation, they are always a hit ! My favorites were I Suppli, a delicious take out roman food (pizzas, pastas, supplis..), Fatamorgana for gelato and Caffè di Marzio for the terrasse on the lovely Piazza.
Then the location of the flat is incredible. Trastevere is the place to stay in Rome as it is very lively with locals, real italian life, great shops and restaurants around the apartment. It is quite busy in the evening as tourists and locals meet there to go out and spend their evenings. Really nice atmosphere and safe. You can enjoy nice walks to all the main sites in Rome.
Thank so much Piero for this wonderful stay.
Arriving to Piero's place, you have the first good surprise: the apartment in even better that shown in the announcement.
Clean, quiet, confortable, well equipped and spacious.
The location is excellent because, being in the heart of Trastevere, you are at 300 meters of the bustle. You can choose between the quiet of Piazza San Cosimato and the lively Trastevere full of movement, restaurants and places to have a drink.
You have a good choice of supermarkets and delicatessen shops in 300 meters around the apartment, and a market every day (except Sunday) in Piazza San Cosimato (50 meters from the apartment).
In the other hand, to go to the main places of Rome, you have a 20 minutes walk to the Vatican City, around 15 minutes to the Pantheon and 20 minutes to the Foro.
Piero has been a good amfitrion giving us all the facilities and advertisings.
This is an excellent choice to spent some wonderful days in Rome.
What an amazing stay. Piero's apartment gave us the best introduction to Rome, tucked away from the tourist chaos. Pie to greeted us when we arrived and explained everything about his home and or surroundings. We enjoyed frequenting the farmers markets outside and having the option of making our own breakfast daily. With a small child this area was perfect as there was plenty of space and even a playground close by. We walked almost everywhere and thoroughly enjoyed all the sights but retreating back to our private, cosy hideaway. Can't recommend this place apartment enough. Very spacious and felt just like home.
We stayed at Piero's for 4 days in August, and he was a fantastic host. Prior to arrival he replied to our communications almost instantly, with full and useful information. When we arrived at the apartment, he carefully showed us what was what, and pointed us to the best local shops and eateries. He was also happy to share his local's knowledge of the were the best day trips.
The apartment itself has been refurbished to a high standard, with solid fixtures and fittings, and kitted out with practical furniture and equipment. There it has high ceilings and space to stretch out. The bathroom was well spec'ed and the kitchen had everything you'd need to cater for yourself.
Trastevere itself is a really bustly area with plent of shops, cafes, and restuarants. The location is walking distance from all the sites of central Rome, and St Peters. In addition there is a great park quite locally, that provided a place for a long stroll or a run.
On était très content de trouver l'appartement de Piero comme point de chute pour visiter Rome. L'appartement correspond aux descriptions, le quartier est pratique pour découvrir la ville et Piero a été un hôte très accueillant en nous aidant pour les transports.
Piero nous a réservé un très bon accueil et nous a donné de bons conseils pour le parking de notre voiture. Il nous a également bien informé sur les restaurants et cafés du quartier de Trastevere qui est un quartier très animé.
L'appartement est très bien situé et correspond vraiment aux photos du site.
Nous recommandons l appartement de Piero pour une découverte de Rome !
Piero was very responsive to our questions before we booked his apartment; kindly arranged for a car service to take us to the airport when we checked out; and had maps and recommendations for restaurants and cafes in the area. The apartment is itself is very spacious (with high ceilings), quiet, and easily cooled with air conditioning. The bathroom and the kitchen are very modern and clean. The neighborhood is fantastic. You are just minutes away from restaurants, cafes, bars, beautiful squares, and an active nightlife -- all with the feel of living in a real Roman neighborhood. Conveniently located to many of the main sights in Rome. Highly recommended.
