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.

Thank you and have a nice holiday
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.
Perfect flat in an ideal location. Walking distance to all the best sites, perfect for 1-2 people. Off the street as well so no traffic noise. Really beautiful interior. Host was great as well.
I booked Alessandro's apartment for my parents' stay in Rome. Alessandro was quick to answer any questions and made himself available to them for any help. They said the best part of the apartment was the location. 15-20 strolls to any major attraction in a quiet and safe neighborhood. The room itself was clean and comfortable. Even though it's on the first floor of the building, there was not a lot of noise from the street. My parents definitely recommend Alessandro and his apartment to anyone traveling to Rome.
Perfect location and a great little city apartment. The location was fantastic, the apartment is on the doorstep of the Vatican and within walking distance of everything else. Alessandro and his wife were incredibly helpful, his wife greeted us upon arrival. We really enjoyed our stay, it was the perfect base for a city break and perfect for relaxing after long days of walking around the city.
Unglaublich herzliche Hosts, die alle Fragen beantwortet und uns jederzeit zur Verfügung gestanden haben. Die Wohnung war sauber und entsprach genau der Beschreibung. Auch war jede Sehenswürdigkeit, die wir besichtigt haben, innerhalb von Minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen.
Einzig der strenge Geruch nach Chlor über all die Tage hat uns verwundert. Abgesehen davon war alles bestens!
Alessandro's appartment is exactly as on the pictures: very charming !
The location is great - you can do evrything by foot - and Alessandro and his family are very kind and helpful
We will come back to this place next time we come !
L'appartement d'Alessandro était parfait pour passer quelques jours à Rome. Il est exactement comme décrit sur les photos et très propre. Nous avons été reçu par la femme d'Alessandro et elle nous a renseigné sur tout ce que l'on désirait savoir, nous a indiqué le supermarché le plus proche, les monuments à visiter, etc... L'appartement est situé dans un très bon quartier, proche de Campo de Fiori avec son marché et ses restaurants traditionnels. Pendant 4 jours, nous n'avons jamais pris le bus, ni le métro, nous avons tout fait à pied, c'était l'idéal. Je te recommande très vivement cet appartement.

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…
