The metro is the easiest and fastest way to visit Rome and our apartment is located next to the metro station A "Furio Camillo" (few minutes walk).

Perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was perfect for our mini break in Rome. Great location, close to the centre and tourist spots via the metro but far enough out that we found local, authentic and cheaper restaurants to eat in the evenings. Apartment was lovely: spacious, modern and has everything you would need. Bruno and his wife were very friendly and accomodating, greeted us when we arrived and gave us all the info we needed. Would highly recommend!

Absolutely Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Bruno and Lorella's apartment was absolutely perfect. From its spacious layout to its proximity to the Metro subway line, we couldn't have asked for more! The apartment was recently renovated and outfitted with all new appliances. The neighborhood is filled with incredible restaurants and gelato shops which are not to be missed.

Bruno was an excellent host and extremely helpful throughout our stay. He provided us with a tour of the neighborhood and recommended several excellent restaurants and pointed us in the direction of the best gelato I have EVER experienced in my life! Additionally he offered to pick us up from the airport upon arrival and provided transportation upon departure, both of which were extremely helpful and greatly appreciated.

We highly recommend Bruno and Lorella's apartment to anyone thining of vacationing in Rome.

Great apartment in a great neighborhood in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with everything about this apartment. It's spacious, perfectly clean, and very comfortable, with excellent all-new appliances (great kitchen!), and it's wonderfully quiet at night. We also loved its location, in a pleasant area close to good shopping, nice neighborhood bars and restaurants, and the Metro subway line. It's far enough from the tourist hot-spots to make you feel you're living among the real Romans, but in fact it's just a half-hour's easy walk from the old city gate by St. John's Lateran.

Bruno and Lorella are fabulous hosts who made us welcome in every way (including regaling us with some delicious gelato!). Bruno picked us up at Termini station on our arrival in Rome, and he drove us to the airport when we left for a very reasonable extra charge.

We would recommend this apartment to anyone--you won't be disappointed!
