Via Cavour is one of the most convenient, well-connected locations in Rome.
The COLISEUM, ROMAN FORUM and PIAZZA VENEZIA are all a few blocks away, less than a ten minute walk.
The famous BASILICA DI S. MARIA MAGGIORE is just around the corner.
The METRO B is on our block - that will connect you ANYWHERE, including the Termini train station (1 stop away), where you can connect with Rome's only other subway line, the METRO A (which stops at the Vatican, as well as Piazza del Popolo, Villa Borghese, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain), and take the express train to Fiumicino airport or the shuttle to Ciampino airport.
There are also bus stops on our block for the 75 line (the 75 will get you to Trastevere in 20 minutes and goes past the Coliseum/Palatine/Circus Maximus on the way).
If you cross the street and go down a short flight of stone steps you will find yourself in the charming, quiet Monti neighborhood: narrow streets, lovely artisan shops, the best ice-cream in Rome, trattorias, Irish pubs and a cozy piazza blocked off from traffic that is always buzzing with nightlife.
Our neighborhood is absolutely full of wine-bars, restaurants (not just Italian - there's an excellent Argentinian place on our street and the best Chinese food in the city is a 15-20 minute walk away), pizzerias (here we can help, we know where to find the best two pizza places in Rome and neither one is touristy) and cafès.
There is a pub/pizzeria right beneath our apartment open until 1 AM and further down the street there's another (famous) pub/restaurant, "La Base", open until 4 AM.
The shopping street Via Nazionale runs parallel to Via Cavour, and Via del Corso is a 10-15 minute walk away.
There is a large, well-stocked supermarket 5 minutes walk away and several other smaller ones right beneath our apartment.
The best bakery in Rome, Panella, is less than 10 minutes walk away.
There is a washer/dryer laundromat next door.
1. A new ice cream shop called FRIGIDARIUM has just opened near Piazza Navona. We tried it the other day, it's heaven!
2. A really good, not too expensive/touristy restaurant near our apt: Le Tavernelle, we go there whenever we can.
3. We recently discovered a nearby fast food lasagna joint called Lasagnam - great lasagna, cute idea, free wireless ( not a given in this country ).
I am Italian, I was born and have lived in Rome most of my life. I spent two years in London.
I love traveling and discovered this website while looking for places to stay in the U.S.
Since I had such a great experience being a guest, I thought I'd try my hand at hosting! I want to help tourists have the best and easiest time visiting Rome as possible. In addition to my own recommendations on things to do and places to visit, I know various agencies that organize great tours of the Forum, Coliseum, Vatican Museums, etc. and would be happy to recommend them.
I work as a musician for a living and will usually be at home during the day and out practicing or performing at night.
You may check in at any time! After you check out you can leave your luggage and pick it up right before you go to the airport, if more convenient.
