A furnished apartment located on historic via Giulia in the heart of Rome. This intimate, romantic, comfortable and quiet space has been recently restored and renovated, revealing the original wooden beamed ceiling and an old brick arch.
The apartment consists of an air conditioned studio bedroom with double bed, furnishings, linens, TV and dining area with charming table and chairs; a separate kitchenette (refrigerator, stove, utensils and accessories); and a full bathroom (shower, hair-dryer). Free Internet wifi connection!!!
The flat is situated on the ground floor facing a characteristic courtyard where you can see an ancient stone wash-tub.
The silence and history surrounding via Giulia seem surreal as you walk to the nearby colourful market of Campo de’ Fiori, or cross into the old neighborhood of Trastevere. Within five or ten minutes of easy walking you can reach many of the famous sights that are described in the guidebooks: Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Fori Imperiali, San Pietro, Piazza di Spagna, Ghetto, Castel Sant’Angelo, Colosseo and so on. Via Giulia is also close to a network of city buses that will link you to the farther areas of the city, including a direct route to the train station.
Via Giulia itself is one thousand meters long and is considered one of the oldest street of Rome, commissioned by Pope Giulio II more than five hundred years ago. A charming and elegant cobblestone route, it runs parallel to the Tiber river from the Ponte Sisto bridge up to the Chiesa dei Fiorentini church. Walking down via Giulia (crossed by twenty-seven lanes!) you can visit eight churches and two beautiful fountains. Each corner or old mansion has an unbelievable story. For example, you can linger at the corner of via Giulia and via dei Cimatori: here, the painter Raffael purchased the site of the current building where, just before his death in 1520, he began construction on his new house and work shop. Or, if you like, you can sit and relax for ten minutes on “the sofas in via Giulia” just opposite your apartment. These benches are none other than the remains of the foundation of the Court of Justice that Pope Giulio II commissioned of Bramante.
With so much history right outside your door, a stay in via Giulia is sure to be a memorable visit.
Great little flat in the very center of Roma, we could walk almost everywere from home in 20 minutes !
The flat as no much light, because it has only on windows, but it's very intimate, practical, cosy and very well decorated (old wood, old stone etc.) !
We liked the place very much !
We had a wonderful time in Rome. Alessandro wasn't able to meet us personally, but in his email communication he was very quick to respond and helpful. His wife took care of the key exchange and gave us some useful tips for shopping and eating. As mentioned in other reviews, the apartment is ideally located. All the main spots can be reached on foot within 5-25 minutes. The apartment itself is as the photos show. I would gladly recommend anyone going to Rome to stay in this apartment.
A perfect apartment in the center of Rome for 2, you can go walking anywhere you want.
The unique problem is that it's so comfortable that you won't want to leave!
Muchas gracias Alessandro!
Alessandro made us feel welcome & was very helpful during our 1 week stay in his charming apartment at the most wonderful location in the heart of Rome. We felt safe in the area which was very important to me - I was travelling alone with my son. Everything we wanted to see we was within walking distance. Perfect!!
The window in the floor to show the archaeological finds is a creative idea which emphasizes history of the apartment. Our own museum. ;-)
I higly recommend this apartment aswell as Alessndro as host!!
It is a super place to stay in Rome. The apartment is very cozy, it has wonderful beamed ceiling and an old brick arch and it is very well located. You can easily explore Rome on foot.
Alessandro is a perfect host. His advices helped us very much. It is awesome to to live in the apartment of a man who is in love with his city.
Alessandro was a fantastic host. Even though we arrived after midnight, he met us at the apartment to show us around and had a map of Rome for us on which he marked some restaurants he likes. The apartment was very comfortable, cute, clean, and quiet, and we loved the location. If we ever have the chance to return to Rome, we will definitely try to stay with Alessandro again!
We were very happy to stay in your lovely apartment. It was clean and free from noise.
Many thanks for the good advice to local restaurants, they were amazing, speceilt Lilli. If we come to Rome again would like to stay in your apartment again, I would like to recommend it to friends and family.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Sadly we are leaving today to travel home to Australia. We have been travelling for 3 months around Western Europe. Rome is our favourite large city. We are a middle aged couple who love to walk and the appartment was in the perfect location for us to walk to all of the tourist attractions. The kitchenette was deffinnately well equipped and a great convenience. Alessandro was the perfect host, emailed us, met us on time and gave us a map and all the information necessary to cover Rome.
Alessandro was very nice and helpful. The flat was clean and extremely well located. We had a great stay. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to discover Rome !
As almost every other guest who has stayed her has said, the location is incredible. The entire city is walkable from Alessandro's flat and it's located very close to many of the coolest areas in Rome. The apartment was quiet, clean and fully outfitted with linens and a small kitchen. Hope to stay in this location when I return to Rome
