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!
My first time in Europe and Rome all at once! What a rush of emotions! I could not have been more excited on that crisp April morning. My girlfriend and I landed at the airport and headed into the city via shuttel and I just wanted to see and experience everything all at once. I had read all of the great reviews about Alessandro's apartment and one of the reasons I was so excited was to Alessandro and see the flat in Rome first-hand. From the moment we sat down at the charming and friendly cafe outside the door at the bottom of the apartment, we felt surprisingly at home. Alessandro met us after our coffee and was extremely helpful in making us feel settled, even recommending the place we ate dinner that night.
The flat is awesome, and that's really the best way I can describe it. It's humbling to be in such a comfortable place and the thought that there's so much history here always ran through my mind. If this is your first time in Rome and you are here to see as much as you can in one of the best places then this flat is for you.
Its a perfect compact place to be close to one of the centers and its a cosy space to feel home, too. I liked the location very much and even for four people its enough. I would book it again, for sure. Thank you very much Alessandro.
Alessandro's apartment is simply perfect!
The location was perfect for our stay in Rome (by walk you can reach almost every interesting point of Rome). The apartment is exactly as seen in photos, small, practical and charming.
The apartment is fully equipped, there are even a hairdryer and an iron! Comfortable bed, clean bed sheets and towels.
Alessandro was really nice. He received us, explained clearly how to manage the house and recommended some places to have dinner in the near.
We can highly recommend Alessandro's place. For sure we will go back to him in our next time in Rome.
Un appartement bien placé au centre de Rome et très agréable, un accueil sympathique, bref un excellent séjour, merci !
This apartment has a great location! We loved that we could walk to every major site. We never needed public transit and the only time we took a taxi was to and from Roma Termini. The apartment was lovely, clean and well equipped. I appreciated that the apartment had a hair dryer and iron. Alessandro's wife met us at the apartment, and gave us a warm welcome, including a map of Rome and tips on nearby markets and restaurants. I would definitely stay in this apartment again!
Une adresse sympa. Très bien placée dans le centre historique et proche du vatican. Wifi, de quoi se faire à manger, etc...
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.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
