About this listing
METRO "C" IS OPENED! NEARER TO THE CENTER! Small, but bright apartment in one of the most characteristic district, two steps from the Center! with all the comforts, can comfortably accommodate 4 people! Children are more than welcome!
The house where I was born and lived until 23's, is located on the third floor of a building with lift. It consists of 1 bedroom (double bed), 1 living room with television and a sofa bed formed of two separate beds, a living room-kitchen, 1 bathroom. Everything has been renovated to provide a practical accommodation, but without removing the tracks and some objects from the past and my history.Then, if you have children, I'll be happy to transform longue room with games , books and so on (look at photos!) according to their age.
In the Pigneto (modiva area), the building is anyway located in a quiet street. In the street there are two bars, one of these in the evening becomes a pub with live music and has Internet free with a special discount of 10% for my guests, on evrithing. Supermarket and every kind of shops are available in the street and around it. I also discovered a very nice shop that rent bicycle for guests that lenjoy cycling! Served very well by transport: a few meters from the palace is a bus to Termini Station, or, alternatively, a train to the Station Laziali and very near to another characteristic multietnic district of Piazza Vittorio. Not far away another bus leads to St. Peter (San Pietro), through the center of Rome. If necessary, the same bus also stops at San Giovanni to access the Metro A. For walkers lovers, the distance for St. John (San Giovanni) is about 2 Km.and fron there, you can coninue beginning the trip through the center of Rome passing from the Colosseum (another low Km). For those traveling by car, 30-40 minutes, can reach the characteristic area of the Castelli Romani (Frascati, Castel Gandolfo, Nemi, etc.).
Finally, the typical district of Pigneto, where different ethnic groups live side by side with the indigenous community, offers leisure and entertainment 24 hours on 24, with cinemas, restaurants, pub, bars, and during the day, you can find fruit & vegetables market and a library.
The whole house is available to my guests, with a fully equipped kitchen to live for a long time. In addition to the normal complement of linens and towels, pottery and pots you will find:
- Air Conditioning
- Television with digital terrestrial;
- Hot water (for tea, herbal teas, etc.).

smoke moderately and ventilate the house anyway. Do not damage the items of furniture. If accompanied by animals, observe the rules of hygiene and minimum cleaning both inside and outside the building.
Lucilla made our stay wonderful from the first minute to the last. She offered to pick us up from the airport, a very welcome surprise. On our way to the apartment, she gave us a detailed explanation of where the bus stops were and the market, as well as good places in the area to go to. Once we arrived she showed us everything on a map as well. Lucille also offered to take us to the train station when we left. She certainly goes above and beyond for her guests.
The apartment was great, very cute and clean, a great size for three people. All the appliances worked great. It was very homey.
It took about 15 minutes once you got on the bus to get to the Termini station. One of the bus lines close to the apartment ran right next to all the major sights, including the Colosseum and the Vatican, which made it very easy to get around.
I highly recommend staying here, it's a great area for young people with the Pigneto area so close by too!
Nous avons passé 5 nuits dans l'appartement de Lucilla, Lucilla nous a accueilli sur le quai de la gare et nous a fait visité le quartier en nous montrant les bonnes adresses. Elle a toujours été disponible pour répondre à nos demandes et nous conseiller tout au long de notre séjour qui fut par conséquent très agréable. En cinq jours, nous n'avons pas eu le temps bien évidemment de tout voir dans Rome, nous ne manquerons pas de revenir et essaierons de revenir ) La Casetta Di Lucilla si possible.
It was a real pleasure (piacere!) to stay at la casetta di Lucilla :)
Lucilla picked us up after our late arrival at Ciampino ariport and took us to the flat. We drove around the local area a bit before coming to the flat so that Lucilla could show us some interesting places, bars, shops, etc. She also told us all we needed to know about local transport and even gave us specifically prepared bus/tram info sheets! A great host! We could immediately start enjoying our stay without worrying about logistics and such.
The flat was great, everything you need is there - including food :)
Lucilla - thank you so much!!!
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à Rome et les 4 nuits dans la "casetta de Lucilla" ont contribué à ce petit bonheur.
Lucilla est venue nous chercher à la gare centrale distante de 2,8km et nous a fait un petit tour de reconnaissance du quartier Pigneto. Elle nous a bien expliqué la mécanique des transports en commun. D'autre part, suite à une erreur de réservation de notre part et comme elle ne pouvait pas nous attribuer une nuit supplémentaire, elle a tout fait pour nous aider à trouver une chambre d'hôtel tout près de l'appartement.
Il est très bien situé, clair et fonctionnel. On entend juste un peu de bruit des voitures en soirée si on laisse les fenêtres ouvertes mais comme les journées ont été bien remplies en marche et autres crapahutages, on s'endort vite dans la casetta....
Mille merci Lucilla et au plaisir peut-être!

What a lovely house! The best Airbnb ever in my experience!
Lucilla was really warm welcoming to me and my family. She picked us up in Termini and even took us when we left Rome. We were very enjoying at her sweet house for 3 nights. She offered breakfast, map, some tips, and introduced neighborhood. The house was decorated very colorfully and l really liked little detailed decorations. Location was perfect. The buses and tram are near her house and good connection to go around the tourist places.
I HIGHLY recommend her lovely place and hope we meet again once I visit Rome again!
Nous sommes venus découvrir Rome pendant un long week end. Nous remercions Lucilla pour son accueil et pour pour sa gentillesse. Elle a été une hôte très agréable et a répondu à nos nombreuses questions.
L'appartement est très bien situé près d'un arrêt de bus.
Nous reviendrons dans cet appartement pour continuer à découvrir Rome, qui est une ville magnifique.
Nous sommes partis à Rome du 23 au 28 avril 2015 et ce fut fabuleux. Le logement est adapté à une famille (nous avons 3 enfants) et spacieux. Lucilla nous a accueilli très chaleureusement et a toujours été aux petits soins pour nous. L'appartement a tout le confort necessaire et est bien situé (le bus passe à 50m pour aller au centre ville). Dans la même rue on peut faire ses courses et acheter des tickets de bus. Il y a un super parc de jeux pour les enfants dans le même quartier. Bref que de bons souvenirs. A recommander !
About the Host, Lucilla
Ciao! Ho 57 anni e vivo saltuariamente a Roma nella casa che vi ospiterà, ma prevalentemente nella zona dei Castelli Romani con la mia famiglia. Oltre alla mia famiglia, formata da mio marito, una figlia di 21 anni (meravigliosa, naturalmente!) e me, vivono con noi la maremmana Ariel, la dalmata Peggy, 4 gatte ed un gattino pestifero.
Adoro i bambini ed ho alcune passioni come la cinematografia, la fotografia, le piante, la musica e la lettura (principalmente narrativa e gialli d'autore).
Tutti in casa siamo fautori del fai da te e conserviamo di tutto (anche troppo), immaginandone un futuro e alternativo utilizzo.
Volendo ospitare per vacanze nella mia casetta di Roma, dove sono nata e cresciuta, penso che il maggior arricchimento sarà quello di conoscere persone di etnie e culture diverse e ciò mi motiva maggiormente.
Mi piace anche cucinare, fare marmellate e biscottini al vino che sarò felice di condividere con voi se lo vorrete.
Sarò anche lieta, sempre se lo vorrete, di aiutarvi ad organizzare itinerari per la mia città.
Parlo sufficientemente bene inglese, francese e un poco di spagnolo.
