The apartment is in a nice neighbourhood that is close to the Vatican and on transport to the centre and other areas.
It is a cozy, homey space that has a little balcony off the bedroom. It was a really good base for exploring wonderful Rome.
The experience in Nicola and Gianni's apartment in Rome was wonderful. I visited the city with my mother at the end of september 2014 and the apartment was exactly what we expected from the pictures: cozy, friendly and had a convenient location - close to a lot of Rome's attractions. We especially enjoyed the music collection that Gianni and Nicola have in the apartment. They made us a very warm welcome, showing us everything we need in the house and helping us with directions and other recommendations for the city. They are very nice and friendly. I would definitely recommend them as hosts in Rome :)
Nicola and Gianni are terrific hosts - young, dynamic and very nice! Very helpful with tourist recommendations, getting around town, etc. Easy communication, Nicola is lightning quick with text messages.
Their home is lovely and has everything you could possibly need for a great visit to Rome - kitchen, washing machine, strong wifi, etc. They purchased a new, firm bed just before our arrival which made for great sleep nights. We spent a lot of mornings and evenings on the sweet balcony.
Neighborhood is removed from the tourist traps. There is a supermarket just downstairs. Bank machines for cash withdrawal and the bus stop are just mere blocks away. About 5 minutes bus ride to the Vatican and 15 to the Roman Forum, Colosseum and other attractions. If you need to go to the Rome Terminini train station, allow for one hour on two buses.
Thanks for being terrific hosts Nicola and Gianni!!!
It was a really good journey and also because of this charming flat! Cozy, comfortable, light bedroom and fully equipped kitchen! Nicola and Gianni are pleasant and open minded people. Nicola was ready to help us almost 24hours a day. She advised us an adorable pizzeria and fantastic supermarket with fresh tasty food.
The heart of this flat is its balcony! We were enjoying having breakfast there and drinking wine in the evening. There are a lot of details in this flat which make it individual and really interesting. You are traveling and at the same time you get acquainted with italian culture and domestic. I really enjoyed books and we enjoyed loads of music there. Thanks Nicola for all food and wonderful wine she presented us. Especially thank for flowers!
We were with a baby and all was perfect! We even returned home on foot from every places of fantastic Rome! If you are going to visit Vatican this flat is simply the best)
