Good link to the center town (bus n. 34 just outside the apartment, several other buses and train at less than 500 meters).
The apartment is located in a part of Rome (Monte del Gallo) very central and, at the same time, breezy and cozy. Just walking out the building’s door you will find the bus stop of bus n. 34, a comfortable small bus which allows you to reach easily and in few minutes St. Peter Square and Cavour Square. From Cavour Square, various buses and the near subway station will connect you to all the main neighborhoods and the main cultural and archeological sites. The “Roma S. Pietro” train station, at walking distance from our apartment, is strategic to reach rapidly and easily the main train station “Roma Termini”, the airport “Leonardo Da Vinci” and the coast (Fregene, Santa Marinella, Civitavecchia). At n. 10 of Salita di Monte del Gallo, at the top of a hill overlooking St. Peter’s dome, our apartment is made up of a living area, one bedroom, a comfortable bathroom with big shower and a kitchen fully equipped which gives onto a small garden where it is possible to eat and relax at the shadow of a medlar tree (nespolo in Italian) and surrounded by aromatic plants. In the winter season, in addition to an autonomous gas heating system, it is possible to enjoy the warmth of a wood stove. Linen and all that is necessary for cooking and eating is at guests’ disposal. The apartment is provided with two cable TVs and WI-FI system. In any room of the apartment, although naturally cool in summer time, there are ceiling fans. There are also two bike rentals at walking distance.

The apartment was very wonderfully decorated with art prints. We loved the neighborhood which was near St Peter's Basilica. The neighborhood is quiet and residential which perfectly meet our needs. We enjoyed going to the supermercato and buying things for our breakfast which we ate in the peaceful garden. We stayed for a week and every day we explored Rome or took day trips. There was many easily accessible choices for public transportation. After our excursions, we enjoyed returning to the apartment which was our refuge. Rosa the host made us feel very welcome. She was responsive to email and texts and was very helpful in arranging transportation to the airport. Our stay was highly enjoyable and I would highly recommend this apartment.
Rosa was a wonderful host. She met as at the apartment and even brought us a new package of coffee. Her apartment is just as advertised - so cute and perfect for our stay in Rome. It's in a good location - close to the train as well as several bus lines. It's also very near the Vatican.
The kitchen was one of the best we had during our month stay in Italy. It was perfect for our cooking needs. There is also a very cute outdoor patio that is excellent for evening wine.
We had an absolutely incredible stay in Rosa's apartment! We were met by her mother and given the warmest welcome, especially with the lovely tart she left for us because our flight got in so late.
The flat itself is perfect, great distance to walk to all the sights and a wonderful home base to have. Incredibly comfortable with all the amenities you could ask for. The patio was a real bonus for us, lovely to have your breakfast outside listening to the vatican bells. Really, really could not recommend it enough!
We have had the most fantastic time in Rome. Rosa's apartment is so cute and authentic and cosy. We had everything we needed, from dressing gowns to espresso makers. We were warmly welcome by Rosa's lovely mother who showed us the local bus stop and the short cut into the main road. Before we arrived, Rosa was so helpful with arrival information, recommendations on travel, and provided a fantastic list of the best local restaurants. One of the highlights is how close the apartment is to the Vatican, we had a daily walk past the Basilica and were constantly amazed by how incredibly beautiful it is. It made our stay in Rome so perfect, I would highly recommend staying here! Thank you so much Rosa!
Le logement est très bien situé, facile d'accès et Rome peur se marcher partout à partir du logement. Rosa n'est pas venue au rendez vous mais elle était très disponible en SMS. Le texte disait qu'il y avait des cartes de Rome dans un panier mais il n'y avait rien. Les autres locataires étaient peut etre partis avec.
We had a fabulous stay at Rosa's apartment in Rome. We were met by Rosa's mother (Rosa was at work) who was most gracious and gave us all the information we needed. The apartment is small, perfect for two people with much attention to detail and amenities. Rosa was VERY helpful. She had great recommendations for restaurants andeven booked a taxi to the airport for us when we left. We LOVED the small courtyard patio and enjoyed our espresso in the mornings and wine in the evenings outside. The neighborhood was off the beaten path(which made it nice and quiet), but very walkable into the center of Rome itself. We loved this apartment and were captivated by Rome! Thanks, Rosa!
Thank you Lisa! We are really happy you stayed at our apartment...you are amazing guests!
Unfortunately I missed the deadline to leave you a review (and just for few minutes!)..I feel very sorry for that because I really wanted to thank you and share my positive hosting experience with other hosts...
Also, thank you for the tips, they are very appreciated!
Wish you all the best!
We had a wonderful time in Rosa's apartment. It was nice, cosy, clean and everything you needed was there. The neighbourhood is quiet, safe and close enough to all the highlights in Rome. We had a warm welcome from Rose. Only thing is that the taxi driver dropped us off in the wrong street. But that's not to blame on Rosa, only on the taxi driver (who wasn't very communicative at all)
