The space

This elegant and cozy Rome apartment is located in one of the most interesting and lively areas of the city center, next to the Pantheon and to the Piazza del Collegio Romano.

The entrance to the building, overlooking an antique marble column, is only the beginning of your pleasant experiences here. The lift whisks you up to the top floor (fifth floor) from which you have a amazing view of the surrounding area.

Opening the door you will see the sunlight pouring through the multiple windows into a well-designed and spacious living room with wonderful white sofas, a table, Afghan carpets, and a nice corner for magazines.

You will immediately notice how incredibly quiet is the appartement (you cannot hear any noise from the street, but only the relaxing the sound of flowing water of the fountain situate in the backyard)

Then you will enter the second leaving area witch is also the dining room, which contains a modern large glass table with chairs, and a corner with two comfortable armchairs. The library, full of international books, lines the wall and will be a relaxing pastime. There is also a desk there if you wish to write some postcards or letters to your friends and family back home.

The first of the two elegant marble bathrooms, Which has a bathtub with a showerhead, is located on this level. The fully equipped kitchen contains a gas range stove, oven, fridge, freezer, dish washer, washing machine, coffee maker, and an electrical hot water heater. The kitchen also features a large counter space facilitating your gourmet cooking.

The stylish wooden stairs will lead you to the upper level. There you will find the master bedroom with a king size bed, flat 20″TV and a DVD player. Large wooden dressing able you to make yourself at home during your stay. Next to the bedroom, there is a second elegant bathroom with a rain shower. Finally you will find a cozy second room with a comfortable pull-out sofa overlooking the main floor.

Location: This elegant Rome apartment is extremely well located a few steps from Piazza del Collegio Romano, Piazza Venezia, Pantheon and Fori Imperiali. It is the perfect location, as in the heart of the city center but in a quiet and elegant building at the 5th floor.

We loved staying here! The apartment was clean and just as it seems in the pictures with more than enough room for me and my boyfriend. Livia was quick to respond even though she wasn't in Rome at the time of our stay. Barbara met us there instead and, it's true, she speaks not one word of English but she was sweet as can be and did some excellent miming when needed to help us know everything from where to find blankets if we get cold to what to do if the power goes out. The location of this place cannot be beat. As a first-timer to Rome, I debated back and forth about where to stay and as it turns out, this neighborhood was just perfect. The Pantheon is beautiful and I loved being able to walk by it to/from the apartment every day. We were so close to everything that it was easy to go back to the apartment in the middle of the day to rest our feet and make our plan for the evening. Plus, if you're going to stay by one major attraction in Rome, the Pantheon is it. It's free and when we went to the square first thing in the morning (after stopping by Tazza D'Oro for a chocolate croissant and cappuccino, of course), it was so much less crowded than the afternoons/evenings (we visited in late September/early October). That meant we got pictures in front of it with nobody else posing behind us :) The only challenge we experienced while there was being able to consistently connect to the wifi...and we're relatively tech savvy. Part of this may be a product of how we like to travel (planning day-to-day rather than all ahead of time), as well as the devices we brought (cell phones without international data plans and a Macbook Air). There was an ethernet cord available but unfortunately the Air doesn't have that hook-up. The signal was fine at times and generally seemed better downstairs. It was frustrating since we were relying on it for directions, making reservations, etc, but a manageable first world problem. At the end of the day, we were in a beautiful apartment in the heart of Rome just steps from amazing food, rich history, and (very important) Giolitti. It doesn't get much better than that.

Great apartment, large, comfy and stylish. Incredible location in the center of Rome - can walk to all the major sites and great restaurants a few blocks away. Very quiet too! Fifth floor, so the small elevator was most appreciated. Was a bit hot in July, but shutting all the blinds during the day and running the A/C and fans (Livia kindly bought a new one so had in both bedrooms) as needed made all the difference.

The apartment matched the pictures and the description. The kitchen is modern and a pleasure to use. The washing machine handled several loads for us that dried quickly in the Rome air. We made use of the separate spaces so that the early bird enjoyed the living room while the late sleeper was undisturbed. It is clearly the space of a visual person, with a HUGE city map of Paris, a HUGE city map of Rome, and a classic black and white photo album of New York. I'd gladly rent this place again. I'll recommend it to my friends. The library is large with intriguing language choices, to wit: Camus, L'Etranger, (The Stranger), in French. Harry Potter, in Italian. Schlesinger, I Mille Giorni di John F. Kennedy (1000 Days of John F. Kennedy), in Italian. Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince, in English. The Light of New York, by Jean-Michel Berts, 2007, black and white large format photos, including a photo of the Italian Caffe Napoli and Puglia Ristorante at Mulberry St. and a photo of The Washington Square Arch in Washington Square that looks like ancient Rome. Kurt Vonnegut, Player Piano, in English. Laurence Bergreen, Marco Polo from Venice to Xanadu, in English. Caveat: In addition to the eclectic library of the hostess, don't fail to explore the Pantheon, the Forum, and all of Ancient Rome - within walking distance. The location is ideal for walking tours of Rome as well as easy access to the busses and trains.

The location of this penthouse is amazing, a few minutes from the Pantheon and walking distance to most of Rome's main attractions. This makes it easy to pop home, rest and go out sightseeing yet again. The space is also great with an upstairs and downstairs allowing privacy. We were asked to call Barbara, the Polish cleaning lady, from the airport to signal our arrival. She is very sweet although she does not speak English so much is done is sign language! In sum: The kitchen is well equipped, there is a rain shower and Livia is v. responsive, the AC unit worked but would not be adequate in summer to cool the whole flat. On the downside: As other reviewers pointed out and I thought they were being overly cautious, UPSTAIRS IS NOT SAFE for children 1-7 years old given the loft has a 2 Meter drop with a flimsy bar above too high up. This is an accident waiting to happen. Also my 9-year old slipped on the wooden stairs in her socks - no more socks! The internet was erratic with 3-4 devices logged on. There is an army of ants both in the kitchen and some even in the upstairs bathroom. They are harmless but quick to march out even for a coffee cup left in the sink. But overall, I loved the location, decor and space. We emptied the bins and fridge on departure, leaving some crackers and cheese in case someone was hungry on a late arrival.

We loved every single detail of our stay at Livia's gorgeous penthouse apartment! Before we even arrived, Livia was so responsive with communications and helpful with directions from the train station to the apt. We arrived about 10-15 minutes later than scheduled and Livia was super accommodating, and showed us all the amenities of the place and answered all our questions. She really made us feel so comfortable and at ease instantly! If we come back to Rome, we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again! The apartment itself is beyond description. The place is simply GORGEOUS. It's super spacious, filled with light, and has been impeccably furnished/designed. My husband and I were so sad to leave Rome and esp. this beautiful home! We even cooked at the apartment a couple of nights - all the dishes, cutting boards, olive oil etc. is easily available, as is a sizable supermarket a couple of blocks away. The place is on the top floor (10 flights of stairs) of a beautiful historic bldg with a small elevator that can accommodate 2 people (or 1 person with luggage) and has such lovely views of Roman rooftops from all the large windows. The location: PERFECT for a short stay in Rome - you can walk to everything from here! Just a couple blocks behind the Pantheon, on a charming side street. 10 min walk to Piazza Navona, the Colosseum, 15 minute walk to Monti and the Trevi fountain. Grazie mille Livia!

My stay in Livia's apartment was perfect. We got delayed at the airport and arrived at the apartment way later than expected. Still she was flexible enough to accommodate us. Her assistant greeted us and give us a tour in the apartment. The place was as described and provided the circumstances for us to have a great experience! thank you
