The Holiday House "Once Upon a Time ..." is located in the central district Appio, immediately behind St. John Lateran, and is a central, real, and inhabited by the Romans lived. And 'well it served by shops, malls, cinemas, public parks, bus and metro. Via Appia Nuova, Piazza Re di Roma and Via Tuscolana they constitute the backbone and are particularly appreciated by the Romans and tourists who like to walk through the windows. Near the house are many restaurants, trattorias, the best-known fast food chains and "pizzerias" for tasty snacks and economic.

The neighborhood is full of public gardens including Villa Lais, the park of Villa Lazzaroni and the beautiful park of Appia Antica, with the Catacombs of Domitilla, San Callisto, St. Sebastian and the mausoleums of Cecilia Metella and the patrician families of 'ancient Rome.

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). So you will come easily to the nearby St. John Lateran (3 stops), Viale Manzoni (Coliseum area, 4 stops) and then all'Esquilino, Termini, Via Nazionale, Via Cavour, Via Veneto, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon Piazza del Popolo, Via del Corso, San Pietro, the Vatican Museums, and the "Line B" to the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Circus Maximus, the Pyramid of Cestius.

You will experience Rome from a privileged position.

An alternative solution, which is also very appreciated by our guests, is the line bus. 85, with a stop 80 meters from the house. It 'a high-frequency (goes every 7 minutes) and serves the historic center of Rome. With it you will come directly to St. John Lateran, the Colosseum, Via dei Fori Imperiali, Piazza Venezia, Via del Corso, Via del Tritone (Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps), Via Veneto and Independence Square (near Termini Station).

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!

Vacanze Romane

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accueil du propriétaire Bruno, qui nous a fourni un service navette à prix très raisonnable pour l'aéroport de Fiumicino. Bruno, qui connait bien Rome, donne tous les renseignements utiles sur les transports, les commerces, les sites à visiter. L'appartement "C'era Una Volta" est situé dans un bel immeuble, avec ascenseur. Le quartier est très tranquille. L'appartement est spacieux, propre, bien équipé, calme, avec une magnifique décoration. La wifi fonctionne très bien. Informations touristiques très complètes, et des ouvrages sur Rome. Lecteur de DVD et des DVD sur Rome. Proche du métro (linea A), et d'un arrêt du bus 85, qui dessert un très grand nombre de sites touristiques. Le propriétaire est disponible pendant tout le séjour. Nous recommandons cet appartement à tous ceux qui souhaitent visiter Rome, tout en séjournant dans un quartier tranquille. Nous y avons passé une semaine excellente. Si nous passons de nouvelles vacances à Rome, nous reviendrons à "C'era Una Volta".

Une semaine, ça passe trop vite, à Rome, chez Bruno et Lorella

  • 5 of 5

Choisir Rome, c'est une excellente idée, et choisir l'appartement de Bruno et Lorella, c'est se permettre de profiter un maximum de cette merveilleuse ville . L'accueil de Bruno et Lorella est si chaleureux ! Leur disponibilité est remarquable. Après les passionnantes visites de Rome (bus et métro à proximité), quel bien-être de rentrer dans ce petit nid douillet pour se relaxer et ...préparer le programme du lendemain ! "C'era una volta " (quel joli nom pour une location) c'est le bon choix.
