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.

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.
We had a great experience with this flat. The location was perfect and the hosts did a great job. They met us at the flat and gave us a rundown of the apartment and the neighborhood. The flat was cozy and charming and had everything that we needed. Highly recommended for a great value visit to Rome.
Staying in Allesandro's place was a great experience, the flat is even more beautiful than in pictures, the neighbourhood is wonderful, very quiet, safe, and typically Roman. We were able to cook our meals easily, walk to every attraction in the city and rest at night. We had a little problem with our luggage before arriving and Allesandro was very helpful and easy to contact, he is very nice and professional. We will certainly stay here again if we have the chance!
Alessandro's flat on Via Giulia is a perfect base for a visit to Rome. The neighborhood is safe and the flat itself is adorable and conveniently located within walking distance of all the incredible sites as well as delicious restaurants. Alessandro himself greeted us warmly and made us feel welcome. Highly recommended for travelers.
We just loved staying in this wonderful little flat. You are so close to all Rome's major sights, and there are loads of great bars and restaurants to explore nearby, yet the flat itself is tucked away from the main street and so is really quiet and peaceful. The bed is really comfortable too, so we slept very well each night after busy days of walking, sightseeing and eating! There is air-con/heating, a little kitchen, and bathroom with great shower and everything you need. The wifi internet was fast and reliable - so useful for looking up sights you might have seen in Rome that day, to give some historical background. Kana came to meet us and was very friendly and helpful, even showing us some nice places nearby on a map. I wholeheartedly recommend this place!! Thanks Kana and Alessandro!
Great location on the Via Giulia, very quiet. Large and beautiful room with it's own archeaological excavation! Clean and comfortable, though I personally prefer softer pillows. Thanks for a great stay Allesandro and especially for allowing me to check in so late in the evening.
Alessandro made us feel so welcome right from our first correspondence, the perfect host. Our first property with AirBnB and a great example was set by him. All communications with him were almost instant and we were never left wandering about anything. The accommodation was as seen on photos and maybe even bigger than expected, so perfect for Mum and her two teens if one of your teens doesn't mind sharing with Mum. But great for a couple. I will be back with my husband and minus the kids. The surrounding area of the apartment is ideal, safe and central to all sites, markets and restaurants. We loved wandering down to Campi Di Fiori in the evening for a meal and shop. The river Tiber is on your door step, so a quick hop across the river to see the Vatican or the Travesti area is within 10 minutes walk. Thank You Alessandro for such a beautiful home away from home. Seasons greeting to you and your family. The Baileys

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 guest 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…
