((website hidden)), in the
south-east area of the city, a multiethnic district called "TORPIGNATTARA" that is well connected to the major
(website hidden) is a brief history of the neighborhood: In the past, the present-day territory of Torpignattara had various names, including that of "Ad duas lauros", "In comitatu" and "Sub Augusta."
The first, For duas lauros, it must be the Latin Christian writer Tertullian (150-220), which, in remembering seditious, certainly not Christians, who had conspired against the emperor is addressed to the Gentiles with a question: "Inter duas lauros obsident Caesarem? "(" by the two laurels tend the ambush to the Emperor? "). In fact, in this area there was the imperial residence or villa, which still existed then, in the middle of the Christian era.
The Emperor Valentinian III, was killed in 455, during a conspiracy, just at this location while engaged in archery exercises on the parade ground of his residence "to duas lauros" . The locations included, besides the imperial residence, even the villas, the castrates (military camps) and the campus martius, where they carried out regular trainings and exercises of the military units.
Between 1943 and 1945, Torpignattara was the protagonist of the Resistance against the German occupation of Rome. This was so intense that the soldiers of the Wehrmacht often gave up to go into the streets of the area due to continuous guerrilla raids. From Casilina the Allies entered Rome declared an open city.
In the sixties Torpignattara is one of the scenarios of the novels of Pier Paolo Pasolini. As a matter of Torpignattara the restaurant was frequented by Pasolini, Ninetto Davoli and Franco and Sergio Citti, who lived in the area.

It was great experience with Claudia in Rome. We didn't spend so much time but we met first day of my trip and she was so helpful about Rome. She recommended quite good routes and places. Her home was so nice, clean. I felt like in home. House is not much close to center but you can reach with just a transportation.
Thank you Claudia for being perfect host :)
Appartement agréable et propre.
Le petit déjeuner était copieux, par contre, nous aurions aimé avoir de la confiture ou du nutella pour accompagner le pain (car nature c'est pas terrible).
Il n'était pas évident de trouver une casserole pour faire chauffer le lait. Le seul point noir du séjour, c'est son mot de rappel à l'ordre sur l'utilisation de la cuisine et de son salon (pas très agréable de trouver ce genre de mot le matin écrit en lettre majuscule). Ces endroits sont uniquement disponibles au moment du petit déjeuner :-(
Nous aurions préféré en discuter de vive voix. Car nous avions utilisé une poêle pour faire réchauffer le lait ainsi que le même ustensile pour faire réchauffer une pizza le soir.
Ensuite, de la même manière, vous pourriez demander avant verbalement ou par quelque façon que vous voulez, si vous pouviez utiliser la cuisine, comme les règles de la maison est écrit clairement que la chambre est réservée et il peut être consulté, et calculant que le prix est vraiment bas, se plaignent parce qu'il ya de la confiture ou Nutella (qui a aussi en principe, pas l'intention d'avoir dans ma maison) est déplacée.
Claudia was a very welcoming and she also gave us a little easter present, which was a lovely surprise for us. The room was just big enough for 3 people and quite cozy. The breakfast offers you everything you need for a good start into the day such as cereals, toast and typical italian coffee. The apartment was a bit off the center but easily to reach by public transportation and there also were nice little restaurants close by. We would definitely recommend Claudia's place!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Claudia's place - she made us feel very welcome and the rooftop terrace was very pleasant. The biggest surprise was the breakfast, it was nice way to start the day. The neighborhood is out of the tourist areas, and is walking distance to everything you need. Claudia also arranged a restaurant reservation for us which was amazing. Thanks for having us Claudia!
There was a bit of a communication issue, so it started off on a bumpy note. But once we finally got to the room, Claudia's brother was very welcoming (since she was unable to be there). The room was great. It provided us with a place to sleep, shower, and eat breakfast which is what we needed since we were out and about in Rome most of the day. With that being said we walked everywhere while we were vacationing in Italy and the room was a 55 minute walk from the train station. Which was very inconvenient. We ended up buying the Rome pass so that we could be able to travel to and from the place to our destinations easier. Her house was also on the other side of town from where all the major touristy places are: Colosseum, Vatican, Fountain of Trevi, ect. So it caused for longer travel times and a bit of a hassle when we were in town and had to go back to the place for a midday rest or something.
We didn't really see Claudia while we were there, so we weren't able to get as much help getting around town or help with some of the questions we had. We also booked the room because we thought we would have access to a washer which was a key amenity that we were hoping for. But when we arrived we found out that the washer was only available after 5 days of being there. This made us lose three quarters of a day looking for laundry services in the area and traveling to them, then having to wait and then go pick up our clothes.
but what did you expect? a hotel? namely, that you could access any service you like at any hotel? and then, you have not studied or established, prior to booking, where it was located in my house? but what kind of tourism you do? at this price, what did you expect? really, you were the only tourists got here until now to find so unprepared and too poorly educated!
