About this listing
Cozy apartment, on Metro A Furio Camillo, very close to the Center, offers good neighborhood, coffee bars, restaurants, pizzerias, ice cream parlors, it gives cocoon-like feelings, like a haven of rest.
A fresh renovated apartment, with contemporary colors (white-grey-green- aquamarine and a taste of red) and some old white wood, is located on the first floor of a building in a residential quarter, 50 mt to metro A Furio Camillo. In the area there are restaurants, pizzerias, coffee bars and bistros, ice-cream parlors, supermarkets and fresh market around the corner, and lots of "best places" chosen by modern romans. By metro A under the apartment, in few minutes you can reach all the "locations" in the center (San Giovanni, Holy Stairs, Colosseum, Barberini, Spanish steps, Pantheon, Vatican City). Inside the apartment, you find a fully furnished kitchen, a bathroom and a bedroom with a bed for two persons that can become a sofa. An additional comfortable inflatable bed can be provided. Bed linen and towels, phone, iron and iron table, coffee machine, fridge, cooking staff are provided. It's totally quiet, very easy if you use the public transport system. On foot you can go to Basilica S. John in Lateran, Colosseum and via dei Fori Imperiali, with a longer walk you reach Trevi Fountain, Spanish steps, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, S.Peter Church and the Vatican city. If you love nature you can dive into the very close-by natural Park of Caffarella and the Ancient Appia Archeological Park (on Sunday morning, seasonal excursions are organized) through which you can reach San Callisto, Cecilia Metella and Ancient Appia street. There is a marketplace where you can find typical products, fresh vegetables and fruit (also a couple of biologic shops). Few meters from home there's another green area called Villa Lazzaroni, a public park with an area for kids.
You have access to wi-fi and all the things you find in a practical although minimal apartment to allow you a little but free space to live.
Interaction with Guests
I am present directly or by phone. By mail I am also always reachable, to suggest or support You in your staying in Rome. I have also a good friend of mine available, when I am not.
Lovely neighborhood, very helpful.
The quarter is a residential one, but also a famous and frequented commercial area with shops on the main street Appia. As many other quarters, it was a popular one (as the quarters of Trastevere, Monti, Campo de' Fiori) and it has a good fresh market.
The quarter offers two big parks, many bars and restaurants and if you like walking you can reach whatever on foot, either going from Appia street to Basilica S. John in Lateran and Holy stairs and to Colosseum, via dei Fori Imperiali, Pantheon, Spanish steps, Piazza Navona, but also San Lorenzo (University area) or Pigneto quarter, meanwhile taking a look to the boutiques of the area, trying a good cake or a piece of pizza!
There are several roman sites to be visited inside the Caffarella Park and the Ancient Appia Archeological Park (suggested during the daylight) till the Catacombe di San Callisto, San Sebastiano and Santa Domitilla.
Underground A, Furio Camillo, is just under the apartment. You reach in few minutes the center (direction Battistini): Spanish steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Barberini square, Popolo square, Colosseum, Monti quarter, University city (La Sapienza, Roma2) but also University Tor Vergata and Ciampino airport (direction Anagnina).
Buses go day and night to Colosseum, San Giovanni, Piazza Venezia, Appia Antica, Vatican city.
Train station Tuscolana (10 min distance from the apartment) connects fast and easily to Airport Fiumicino, Tiburtina station, Trastevere station, Ostiense station.
You can buy tickets for 1.5 euro for metro-bus-train, for long staying you can buy a pass for one day, three days, a week or a month. This option is the best and it is absolutely suggested for staying of one week or more. You can buy the pass in tobacco shops, in some kiosks or at info-points!

Micaela's apartment was really great! The area was so easily accessible by metro and it was quick to connect to Termini and other places in Rome. The apartment was exactly as pictured- clean, cozy and welcoming! Upon our arrival, there was even a bottle of wine and some fruit left out for us :) Much appreciated!
Although I did not get a chance to meet Micaela, she was tremendously helpful in offering recommendations for places to visit in the area. We corresponded throughout my stay and she always responded very quickly. I highly recommend this apartment for your next stay in Rome!
Nous n'avons Micaela, par contre elle était toujours joignable et répondait rapidement aux mails / SMS. Appartement fonctionnel, propre et bien situé.
Micaela a été très flexible quant aux horaires de départ / arrivée et nous a autorisé a laisser nos valises plus tard dans l'appartement alors que notre vol retour était a 20H.
We had a pleasant stay at the IF-apartment. Micaela was a very good host - she is very, very helpful and kind. Even though we arrived very late in the evening she was waiting for us at the apartment and had even brought us wine, fruits etc.
The apartment is nice and has everything you need for a stay in Rome.
We were in Roma for 10 days my husband and I and I think we've chosen the right appartment. The place was refreshing and quiet and, most important nearby the metro station so to visit it was easy. The welcoming was great also. We didn't met Micaela but her friend Claudio who was warm and helpful. What I am very thankfull is that we immediately felt at home in this appartment. The area is great if you are a shopping person you can find good things with the best price. There is a very good restaurant right next the building and people are nice. I recommend the place for a couple and for those who looking for a quiet and fresh place.
Thanks Micaela for her warm welcome. Apartment was very clean and tidy. It was close to the public transport, local daily markets, organic and grocery shops.
Micaela was very helpful and friendly, she gave us advices about printing and laundry services.
We would definitely recommend it for everyone!
P.S. Bowl of fruits was a very nice addition! )))
Micaela was very helpful and friendly in describing the way to get there - responded quickly.
The apartement is in a really good shape - and we felt very comfortable staying there.
The apartement was close to the metro - so it was easy to get to the sights.
El apartamento está muy bien. Limpio y cómodo. En una zona muy comercial y con el metro al lado. La anfitriona, Micaela, es muy amable y ayuda en todas las dudas que uno pueda tener. Hemos estado muy agusto y hemos pasado unos días estupendos en Roma.
