A great apartment in a perfect location
We stayed in this apartment for four days in October. Rome is a
special city and the apartment made it even more special. Ricardo
provided fantastic service meeting us at the apartment to welcome us,
and the free bottle of wine was an extra nice treat. The apartment is
very cute and the bed is one of the most comfortable I've ever slept
in. But it is the location that really makes this place, it seems to
be within 15 minutes walk of nearly everything you'd want to see.
One warning, be prepared for a few stairs to get up and down from the apartment.
