About this listing
As I'm taking a leave of absence from Rome, I will be renting the whole place instead of one room only.
My penthouse apartment is in the heart of Rome, right next to Saint Peter's Cathedral, the Vatican, Castel Sant'Angelo, and all the historic center, facing the renovated Piazza Cavour.
The main bedroom has a regular double bed, and the second room has a queen-size bed. Indipendent air-conditioning in each room.
The apartment is 80 square meters (861 square feet) with a terrace of 50 square meters (538 square feet). All the mod cons: elevator, wifi internet, sat-cable tv, air-conditioning, washer, dish washer, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine, indipendent heating.
There absolutely can't be smoking in the house. In the terrace, of course, yes.
Very well connected to Fiumicino airport through shuttle bus service, stop is just off the square, and to Termini train station (subway or bus).
Walking and sightseeing is perfect from here.
Supermarket is 70 meters from the building and at this corner of the square there's one of Rome's biggest and coolest wine stores, which comes handy when you want to relax at sunset on the terrace.
Don't forget to scroll down the listing to see the neighborhood map where I pointed out nice restaurants, bars, supermarkets I like.
My friends GIORGIO and MICHELE will be handling the apartment when I'm not here.
Most important rule: smoking allowed only on terrace!
Please, lift your trolleys instead of rolling it on the hardwood floor.
Hopefully you'll have some sort of green thumb and will be willing to water the plants if you see them dry :-) Anyhow, there will be a friend who will come to water them usually around 5pm.
About the Host, Miki
I deal mostly with writing and I work from home.
I grew up in Milan but as soon as I graduated from high school I moved to New York, where I lived for three years. When I came back to Italy I moved to Rome, got a university degree with a major in movie history, worked as second assistant director and casting assistant and then as script editor.
I'm a very lucky guy because I live in a uniquely beautiful apartment (you won't forget the Roman sky from the terrace), so it will be great that other people will be gracefully taking advantage of it while I'm off on my leave of absence from Rome.
