About Gabriele Di Milia

My name is Gabriele. I have been renting this apartment as a Holiday House for about 6 years. Before I rented another apartment for 4 years. I just created this new account but the property has been listed with HA for 6 years or more.

I enjoy art and architecture and love my city.

I will be happy to help you make the most of your trip to Rome.

Do not hesitate to ask for any help you may need.

Gabriele Di Milia purchased this apartment in 1994

Why Gabriele Di Milia chose Rome

Elegant, comfortable and centrally located. It is the ideal choice for everyone who wishes to be situated in central Rome with all the comforts of a home.

About the name:

The apartment is named after the Via Aurelia which leads to it.

The Via Aurelia is an ancient consular road that was began in the mid-third century BC by the consul Gaius Aurelius C. to connect Rome to Cerveteri, then extended to connect the new military colonies of Cosa and its Pyrgi founded in the third century BC on the Tyrrhenian coast and later connecting Agrigentum (modern Agrigento) and Panormus (modern Palermo).

What makes this apartment unique

I like the tranquility and charm of the neighborhood. The apartment and building are quite unique. The convenience of grocery stores nearby, restaurants and being able to walk to St. Peter's.

There is free street parking.

It has been recently renovated. I live close to the apartment.

Bars, restaurants and supermarket are within walking distance.

The apartment is well connected by public transportation to the main attractions of the city.

I can arrange transportation for your convenience.

  • 4 of 5

Met by Gabriele who was welcoming and informative about the apartment and the location.

We enjoyed coming back each day to a cool abode, outside reaching 31 degrees

We managed to walk to all the main attractions but need to be fit and have good footwear.

A file giving information on the following would be useful



Toilet (flushing)


Location of supermarket

Restaurants nearby

A electric kettle and new toaster would be good

A basic welcome pack - tea coffee satchets, milk biscuits

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I felt immediately comfortable in this lovely little apartment. Since I was initially alone that was very important to me. It was very clean and everything I needed to cook a meal, was there. There was a convenience store at the end of the street to the left half a block down. They sold fresh vegetables and most things I needed. Gabriel, the owner left lots of information that was very helpful such as restaurants and directions to attractions and shoppig. He was a wonderful host and most certainly made my stay enjoyable.

A fantastic base for a visit to Rome

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Aurelia for 4 nights as a base to explore Rome and visit Pompeii.

The apartment was ideal with everything we needed for 2 adults and 2 teenagers - great shower, good wifi and a little kitchen if you don't want to sample the Roman restaurants. There's no a/c but it was lovely and cool and you probably don't need it.

The apartment is in a quiet residential area so don't expect bars & restaurants outside the door but then it is lovely and quiet.

It is located about 15 mins walk from St Peter's or a quick walk to a bus stop that goes straight to the centre or in a taxi it was less than €10 (Apr 2017).

Gabriele arranged a car from the airport for us which was the same price as a taxi and he was more than helpful with information when we arrived.

When I go back to Rome I will try an book this apartment again - it was ideal - thank you Gabriele.

Very nice apartment on a quiet side street. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Gabriele was very helpful. Property is in a residential neighborhood, yet just a short walk from the Vatican, the grocery, bus stop, etc. Great base of operations for our stay in Rome.

convenient and quiet apartment in Rome

  • 4 of 5

always takes a little time to orientate yourself on 'landing' in a city, the apartment was located on foot to the rear of Vatican city walls. The streets and area do not appear on the local tourist info maps, usually covered by the map info panel! Once located, you will find a nearby bus stop available, and with a little effort, two walk'able Metro A line stops Via Aurielia and Cipro. the first is a walk down hill from the main road, right through car park, across garage forecourt and alongside narrow path by dual carriageway(very busy) Metro is visible, descend steps to find entrance. Cipro is up to the Vatican walls, turn left look for short close and narrow steps in corner, descend, dog leg through and cross bottom road, Metro is to right. Also useful Conad supermarket but do not cross the road, stay on right & walk along. The apartment itself is a basement flat 2 good sized bedrooms, usable kitchen, bathroom with shower, and a sitting room, albeit with very hard seating. comfortable and cool after a long hike around Rome. and though out of centre, if you use the transport indicated, you will find your way around quickly. Do arm yourself with a few spare transport tickets, at 1.5e they will be very useful in reserve. 1 metro journey inc. 100mins of finding second onward link, bus/tram. Rome is a remarkable city, but can become tiring in the heat, and fallback transport, even crowded, can be a welcome relief. Rush hour in an airless, heated, crammed bus, an experience! If you've been before, stretch your wings a little, find Ostia/Attica, a mini Pompei, EUR, a monolithic slab of Mussolini's view of Italy's world position, built for an exhibition that never happened with the outbreak of tension leading to WW2; fascinating, a complete contrast to historic Rome. If you have had enough of the tourist minefield around central Rome, try the small restaurant up Trattoria Da Aldo right opposite the Vatican wall, 300m away, serving excellent fettuccine pasta dishes, and the house carafe wine is very drinkable too. If you want more buzz but better value, find your way to Trastevere, Carla Menta, busy but decent food at great value prices, very busy. When you start to run out of steam, retire to your quiet apartment to refuel.
