The Fab apartment was completely restored and redecorated by interior designers and it is placed in a very charming cobblestone street in Trastevere, every point of interest of Rome is within 5-30 minutes walk, this is your best home in Rome!
The apartment is located on the second floor of a recently renovated building in a very charming cobblestone street in Trastevere. There is no elevator at present, but access to the apartment is easy. The apartment was completely restored and redecorated in 2013 and includes parquet, beams, and large double glazed windows looking out onto Viale Trastevere, Ponte Garibaldi and the Tiber. The living room is decorated in soft grays and includes a sofa which opens up into a large double bed, a dining table and chairs, a coffee table and a large flat-screen TV. The separate kitchen is light and has plenty of work surface. It is equipped with a refrigerator/freezer, a stove, an oven, a toaster, a microwave, a coffee maker, a washing machine, a quiet dish-washer, cooking utensils, and plates, glasses, and cutlery for four people.

The bathroom has been completely redone and includes a toilet, a bidet, a sink and a shower. Bedding and towels for four are included.
Free Internet WIFI access.
It is located in a quiet area despite being in the heart of Trastevere.
Just outside the apartment block is Piazza San Cosimato where there is a large fruit and vegetable market every morning except Sundays. Here you will find not only fruit and vegetable stalls, but also cheeses, flowers, various other edible products such as olives, nuts, bread, pizza, and on and on. On Sunday mornings the famous Roman flee market Porta Portese is literally five minutes walk away. Here there are some real antiques, bric-a-brac, new and old clothes, and oddities of all sorts.
Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere is the most popular gathering place in the area. In this square you will find the church Santa Maria in Trastevere, one of the oldest and most beautiful churches in Rome and very much worth a visit. The neighbouring streets have a variety of stores, restaurants, and service-oriented businesses as well as beautiful residences.
Equidistant from the Coliseum and the Vatican, Trastevere is the ideal place to discover the secrets of Rome on foot. Saint Peter's and the Vatican are about twenty minutes away and upon crossing the Tiber you get to Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, the Roman Forum, and many other sights in no time at all. If you want to take public transportation, the area is extremely well served by the tram and the electric buses of Rome.

First of all, this is a fantastic apartment. It looks even better in real life than it does in the pictures, it is spotless clean. The housekeeper made us feel very welcome and Maria herself called over to help us when we had trouble making the fold out bed. It is situated in a lovely neighbourhood, close (20-30 min walk) to all the main sites (Pantheon, Forum, Colosseum, Vatican etc). Trastavere itself is a great place to just wander around and there are loads of great restaurants, very close (2-4 min walk away) and supermarkets and a local market are close-by also. Stay here and you will not be disappointed. We loved it!
The Fab apartment really lived up to its name. It is a really lovely, stylish apartment in a lively and interesting neighbourhood of Rome, with lots of bars, restaurants and markets nearby. We had a great time in Rome, Maria was a very helpful host who always responded to requests very quickly, and organised the transfers to and from the airport with Fabrizio which made our visit go very smoothly.
Maria is an incredible host in every sense of the word. Before our trip even began she sent us a packet of information on the area, and answered all of our questions regarding transportation to and from the airport. The apartment was immaculately clean and beautiful. The spaces are beautifully done, and provide a gracious amount of space. The bed was very comfortable, and each room has individual temperature control which was a great convenience. Trastevere is a great area that is definitely walk-able to all of the attractions and amazing to explore! We have already recommended this place to our friends and family that are planning trips to Rome over the next few months, and hope to stay here again in the future!
Great apartment in a great neighborhood. This was my daughters favorite place we stayed on our trip to Italy. We ate 3 nights at the pizzeria downstairs in the building. It is really good and entertaining as they make the pizza in front of you.
Apartement is greatly located in the heart of busy Trastevere, but on a quiet street. Just as described. We had a fantastic stay, we felt welcome. Maria's response was fast and helpful, thank you very much :)
Finalmente per la prima volta ho soggiornato meravigliosamente a Roma!
Ho sempre avuto difficoltà a trovare a Roma un appartamento pulito e confortevole con un Host comprensivo, discreto e sempre disponibile ma questa volta posso dire di aver trovato tutte queste cose ad un prezzo più che ragionevole!
La casa è meravigliosa, arredata con gusto e molto calda.
Il quartiere è uno dei più belli di Roma e soggiornando qui sarete praticamente nel cuore del centro storico!
Penso proprio che ritornerò appena il mio lavoro (ma spero anche per una vacanza) mi porterà nella capitale.
Grazie Maria e Silvana!

I believe that travelling has the power to heal, energize and improve the world, and I’m proud to be a part of this community.
I was born in Rome and raised in Pompeii as both my parents are archaeologists.
I moved back to Rome 15 years ago. My interests are travels, food, photography, foreign languages and my favorite hobby is home design and interior decorating, I enjoy anything creative!
I love Italian, Japanese, Russian and Greek food, I also like to cook.
Travel is definitely my biggest passion and it has taken me and my long time boyfriend Federico to about twenty countries along the five continents.
When I travel, I look for places that are not ultra touristy. I want to experience the restaurants and bars that the locals know and love.
I'm hoping that you seek the same. I can recommend some really cool places and things to see/eat/do if you'd like.
I absolutely love Rome and I am the biggest ambassador for it. I love to welcome people from all over the world to this great city so they can share the love that I have for it as well!
I've had some amazing people from all over the world stay at my place and look forward to hosting you.
See you soon in Rome!
