About This Listing
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 Fio(website hidden) 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.

Nell’armadio troverai una tovaglia per il tavolo, usala se devi mangiare, ci aiuterai a conservare intatto il mosaico.

This apartment was exactly what my husband and I wanted! Great location, perfect for a couple, quiet street near everything. The shower is very small, so if this would bother you, might not be the right place for you. We would stay here again if we get a chance to come back!
This apartment offers everything you could need for a city break. It's clean, comfortable, tastefully designed and in a perfect location. All the major sites are within easy walking distance and, despite its position in the heart of Rome, it's very quiet - we slept very well. Everything worked fine - hot water, good shower, clean and good-quality bed linen, towels and crockery. And there are plenty of good options nearby for groceries or eating out. What's more, the host was really welcoming and helpful. We couldn't have wished for more.
The location of the flat was just perfect and we felt really comfortable in this quiet neigbourhood.
The room was bigger than it looks in the picture, the whole flat was very clean an cozy. Couldn´t have been better!!!
The hosts a friendly an helpful as well, so thanks a lot to Alessandro an his wife!!! We would definitively coma back...
We had a wonderful time in Rome thanks to Alessandro's comfortable studio apartment. It is a great neighborhood quiet at night yet close to many cozy restaurants and bars. Walking distance to many points of interest. Alessandro's wife met us at arranged time and gave advise on places to visit. Alessandro also assisted with transportation for us. Would stay again for sure.
We were thrilled at how good a location this apartment is. The proximity to all that rome has to offer , within easy walking distance , was fantastic. Kana met us upon arrival and gave us tips about where to eat, campo de fiori markets etc. We had a minor issue with the air conditioning , and she very quickly returned and rectified it. She is very friendly , helpful and hospitable. The flat itself has a good bed, plenty of hot water, small but well equipped kitchen, excellent security, clean, great value and has its own feature in the way of an archeological dig. The flat has tons of character.

About the Host, Alessandro
I am Alessandro, born in Rome and in love with my city... I am on call 24/7 and do my best to help people have the best experience possible during their stay. Archeology is my first passion, then food and good wine (my wife is a sommelier).
I think that living in Rome means… walking through the streets of history, where around every corner you come upon an architectural wonder, written about in history books, or a museum rich with original and important works of art – all objects of beauty that were created for your enjoyment by artists throughout more than two thousand years of history... discovering that, even during winter – when the entire peninsula is under snow, from the Alps to Sicily – you can enjoy sun-drenched spring-like days, guaranteed from the affectionate and protective embrace of the Abruzzo Apenines. Rome is the only city in Italy where the sun is always brilliant and the moderate temperatures never end....To experience the constant struggle between christianity and paganism; to worship the beauty of the eighteenth century churches while bowing to the graces of the ancient temples. ... To stop in at the local shops and chat for a while with real Romans who can be sceptical, are often impatient, but underneath it all they’re big-hearted.
What I wanna say is that no one of my guests should come away from a visit to Rome, eternal city of history and art, without having relished the experience completely, in the best way possible, and with a full understanding of her finest characteristics…
