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.

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.

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.
