A charming light-filled apartment, made especially cozy by a recent remodeling. A perfect romantic hideaway, enriched by the ancient ceiling with wooden rafters, by the sight of the bricks from the orginal construction, and by a mosaic in the typical geometric style of Rome.
The apartment consists of one room perfectly acclimatized (air conditioned) and endowed with an elegant cooking alcove finished in travertine marble (where guests will find everything necessary for cooking).
Free Internet wifi connection also available!!!
The sleeping area, furnished with refined upholstery and fitted with a comfortable double bed, is positioned on a typical wooden loft, reached by a staircase/wardrobe that‘s in harmony with the ceiling.
The views enjoyed by the aparment are truly charming; from both the sleeping loft and the first floor you can gaze out on the the piazza dei Coronari, Mount Giordano, and the Castle Sant’Angelo as it rises from the stretch of Lungotevere.
Completing the apartment is a comfortable sofa, which converts into another double bed, on which you can relax and enjoy the modern liquid crystal television.
The bathroom, also finished in travertine marble, contains a shower and is well stocked with everything that guests need (towels, soap, shampoo).
The apartment is situated on the second floor of a typical three-story building; you’re therefore assured of perfect privacy and quiet, and instead of an elevator there is a splendid seventeenth century spiral staircase in peperino (volcano tuff which is grey with black little grains like peppergrains; this kind of stone is found in the Albani hills near Rome).
The location of the apartment is exceptional as you are extremely close to all the classic sights of Rome. Castle Sant’Angelo, Saint Peter’s, Piazza Navona, Campo de’Fiori and the Pantheon are all no more than an easy three minute walk.
In the immediate vicinity it’s worth a moment to linger along the two streets that border via di Panico: via dei Coronari and via di Monte Giordano.
The first, via dei Coronari, about half a kilometer long (from piazza Navona to the Tiber), partially retraces the route of the so-called Via Recta (traces of the latter’s pavement and shops have been found six meters down from the current street level), an imperial era street that ran from Via Lata, today’s Corso, to the Nero bridge. Sisto IV Della Rovere (phone number hidden)), the first decidedly “urbanist” pope, commissioned its redirection; but, in the direction of the Pantheon, its straight stretch remained blocked, as it is today, by the Palazzo Capranica; in the opposite direction, it ends by flowing into the “canale di Ponte.”
Via dei Coronari, bustling with the sale of souvenirs and devotions dear to pilgrims, was for centuries full of movement and rich like all the streets travelled by the crowds of visitors. Then, especially after the opening of Corso Vittorio, the street was abandoned to the poorer population. From the 50’s, a spontaneous movement of rebirth took hold of this area, which has today become the most beautiful showcase of large and small roman antique dealers.
Via di Monte Giordano, instead, gets its name from being one of the many artifical hills created by the accumulation of archeological debris, or, as some hypothesize, from the dumping of the refuse and rubble of the nearby river port from the roman times (off Tor di Nona).
Even Dante speaks about the “Monte” in the XVIII song of the Inferno. The mountain became known as Monte Giordano in 1328, taking its name from Giordano Orsini, Roman senator in 1341.
In succeeding centuries, the Orsini family was succeeded by the Gabriellis and then, finally, the Taverna. This is why even today the beautiful building at the top of the mountain is known as “Palazzo Taverna.” Via di Panico is without doubt a beautiful street, rich in history and provides an opportunity to absorb the subtle emotions of having been one of the most tormented centers of the difficult baronial times in the city. The perfect starting point to best enjoy the best of the eternal city!
Alessandro est un hôte formidable, il accueille les gens chaleureusement et a à coeur de leur fournir tout ce dont ils ont besoin. L'appartement est très joli, intime et vraiment parfaitement situé pour voir tous les sites de Rome à pieds. Il est parfait pour un ou deux couples ou encore une famille, nous y étions avec notre bébé et c'était tout à fait adapté.
Vraiment une bonne expérience !!!
4 parole per descrivere l' app di Alessandro: bello, funzionale, centralissimo, e dotato di grande fascino.
Il nostro è stato un week end, cosi come speri che siano quando prendi le ferie: bellissimo.
Del resto Roma è la città eterna.... e se a ciò si aggiunge un bellissimo app e la squisita disponibilità dell'Host (sempre pronto a dare consigli su cosa/quando/come visitare a Roma)... chiunque risulterebbe innamorato dell'esperienza. Noi sicuramente ritorneremo!

We absolutely loved Alessandro's apartment. Incredibly well located for access to all the major sites you'd want to see and great value for money. It is small, so maybe 4 adults might start to creak after a few days in such close proximity, but for me and my three boys it was absolutely ideal
Alessandro was incredibly helpful and also allowed us to leave our stuff at the apartment on the last day as no-one was staying the following evening. This made the final day and our late flight out so much more relaxing and meant we'd didn't have to schlep our gear over to the left luggage office at Termini.
This flat was thankfully exactly as advertised. Our stay was a short one and this flat gave us a wonderful autonomy on account of its location, and not just because of the proximity to the big attractions but also the cafes and restaurants along the street. In the interest of balance, we can say that while the street is comparatively quiet the apartment is loud because the windows don't provide much by way of noise cancellation. Still, you should feel lucky if you can book this apartment. It's in demand for a reason.
Alessandro and the apartment on Via di Panico are wonderful! We loved the little space and it was perfect for what we needed. It is in a great location, although not necessarily convenient to the Metro--be prepared to walk, learn the bus system, or pay for taxis. Alessandro was a great host, even available within fifteen minutes when we locked ourselves out of the apartment. Highly recommended to stay here or at another property managed by Alessandro. Grazie per tutto!
La ubicación es inmejorable! Muchas gracias, Alessandro, por ofrecernos la oportunidad de alojarse en esta casa! Esperemos volver pronto a Roma!
ENSEMBLE AGREABLE. TRES BONNE SITUATION AU CENTRE ROME A 500 METRES DU VATICAN
What a fantastic stay! The flat was very well furnished and cosy.Alessandro was very pleasant and helpful.All Roman wonders were only walking distance and the area itself was totally charming. If we were to come back to Rome, we wouldn't stay anywhere else. Gracie Allessandro
The apartment was in a fantastic location, we could walk everywhere and did not have to use public transport. It was well equipped and had everything we needed for our holiday. I would definitely come back again.
Apartment location was perfect. We felt safe and secure. Apartment was cute, cosy and clean. Wifi was very useful. I would recommend the apartment but guests need to be fully mobile to access the spiral staircase as it's 2nd floor.
