About this listing
Elegant, quiet room in the historical, hip, safe Garbatella area. Only 20 minutes from downtown, by metro or bus. Fascinating to filmmakers, students and artisans, Garbatella was originally constructed to house displaced workers under fascist rule. A village within a city, the neighbourhood's delightfully diverse food offerings and relaxed nightlife is a reflection of Garbatella's
Garbatella was built in an area marked by hills and meadows crossed by Via delle Sette Chiese. Via delle Sette Chiese provided a link for the pilgrims to travel between San Paolo fuori le mura and San Sebastiano. It was organized in blocks, called Italian Lotto, by multiple architects over a period of about 20 years. Not far away is the ancient Via Appia with Roman archeological sites such as the catacombs and Tomba di Cecilia Metella. A bike path connects the area to the city center (15 minutes).
The apartment is located in a quiet street with a lovely balcony surrounded by trees. It is the perfect space to relax after the hustle and bustle of downtown Rome.
