Overview

About the property

Delicious apartment in Rome a stone's throw from the Colosseum and San Giovanni

"Il nido al Colosseo II" is a delightful apartment located in a 19th century building, in the heart of the historic center, along the road that the papal parades used to go from the Basilica of San Pietro to that of San Giovanni in Laterano.

Equipped with every comfort, easily accessible from airports and train stations, a few steps from metro, public transport and services, it is an ideal starting point for visiting the most important masterpieces of Rome.

Perfect for families, romantic getaways or couples, it is the ideal solution to spend a relaxing stay.

The attention to detail and a warm welcome will make your stay unique.

The apartment is renovated and furnished with taste and I personally supervised the restoration of the furniture, I have paintings and carefully chosen detail.

Tips and welcome kit: To make your stay as pleasant as I have personally selected a range of information and useful addresses. Upon your arrival you will find a list, divided by the area in which the premises are listed (typical taverns, restaurants, pizzerias, bars, pubs, wine bars, bakeries, etc.) that in my experience I think are suitable for you to spend in the best way your stay. You will be met by me or my husband and we will provide all necessary information also on means of transport, the attractions of the neighborhood, the advice for pleasant walks in the city center. This way you can give your holiday a very customized impression and experience Rome not only as tourists.

You will find a food welcome kit (pasta, tomato sauce, olive oil, vinegar, salt, sugar, milk, coffee, snacks, tea, fresh fruit), which will allow you to organize without haste in one of the very close supermarkets. Also available in the hygienic products (shower gel, shampoo, hand soap, toilet paper) and detergents, as well as a kit for cleaning shoes, a set for first aid and a hairdryer.

It 'also available a washing machine, including detergent, clothes pegs, drying rack, iron and ironing board.

Interested in recreation and green areas:

L 'apartment is located near the metro stop "Colosseo" (Line B) and' San Giovanni '(Line A) and a short walk from the bus stops that allow you to reach easily and quickly the main attractions and popular areas for shopping such as Via Condotti, Via del Corso, Via Frattina, Via Appia, etc. Nearby it is also the economic Via Sannio market, very lively and famous for its stalls of clothing and footwear made in Italy.

The area is full of bars and entertainment venues and is characterized by the presence of numerous green areas equipped with games for children. Among these: Villa Celimontana and the Colle Oppio Park.

Strolling meet romanesche trattorias where to taste the typical kitchen, and other rooms for a snack or a tasty break, as well as shops where to shop in the relaxing local atmosphere.

Transportation from / to Airports: On request is available a transport service to / from the Fiumicino and Ciampino airports

The holiday house 'Il Nido at the Colosseum II' is authorized by the City of Rome: SCIA No. QA / 2014/9229 of 26 June 2014.

Another important thing that I would like to point out: we also have another property about 500 meters from this apartment and could be very useful in the case of different families or groups of friends.

About Antonella Blefari

I have worked many years in various humanitarian organizations and I have traveled a lot, both for work and for pleasure. Since I love to travel and get in touch with people, I'm finally able to realize one of my dreams: to open a vacation home and be able to reserve my guests special care and attention. One of my passions is to furnish apartments and to this vacation home I have devoted a lot of care, attention and passion: from research, restoration, painting of furniture, to the care of every single detail. Just having traveled so much I thought a lot about what I would have liked to find in many homes where I was and the kind of reception and information that I wanted to get. So now that I'll be able to host, I'm delighted to welcome my guests with the baggage of my experience as a traveler. I also hope to meet you soon also to be able to bring you all the excitement and passion that I put into this adventure and to share with you my suggestions on my loved city. My aim is that my apartment could be your home away from home

I'm waiting for you as welcome guests!!

Spotless, very comfortable nest in Rome

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little flat in Rome's Celio district near the Coliseum. Very comfortable double bed and everything else one could want, including basic supplies, good coffee and a big bowl of fresh fruit which was a nice touch. Very nice bathroom, and the fold-out bed our teenager slept on was also comfortable. Good quality bedding. Antonella and Marco are great hosts - we tried several of their recommendations for restaurants and they were all excellent. They arranged our taxis to and from the airport which was very helpful, and both were good drivers with nice cars. The area is very handy for the sights but also very quiet - we slept like a dream. As expected there is no view or outside space - this is on the ground floor and the windows open on an inner courtyard - but if you're in Rome you should be sitting in a piazza anyway! (There is a cafe / restaurant right next door, with seats outside, where we had breakfast every day.) Strongly recommended beautiful flat - we may come back as a couple (without a teenager quite so close next door) as it's also really romantic! Thank you A&M!

The apartment was clean, tidy and very well furnished. It had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Antonella greeted us at the property and she had lots of very useful information to help us with our stay in Rome. In fact we had spoken several times before our arrival and she gave us some great advice on making the most of our visit. The apartment was perfectly located for us near the Collesseum and within easy reach of the main railway station. The apartment was clean, tidy and well appointed and comfortable. Antonella had even stocked a few convenience items for us to use. She was the perfect host and the apartment is an ideal base for exploring the city. Grazie mille Antonella!

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our first visit in Rome and would highly recommend staying in this lovely flat. It is ideally located for sightseeing with the Colosseum literally at the bottom of the road. Antonella and Marco were very welcoming and provided alot of information and a guided walk of the local area. The flat itself is beautifully decorated with lots of thoughtful little extras. The bed was really comfortable - very important after a long day of sightseeing. We really enjoyed our stay and will hopefully be back next year! Many thanks to contributing to a wonderful holiday!

Great apartment in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic stay in Marco and Antonella's cozy apartment Il nido al Colosseo 2. Perfect for what we needed. Marco met us upon arrival and was a wealth of information. Essential groceries were already stocked in the kitchen! And there were outlet adapters ready to use. Nicely furnished and the bed was very comfortable. We felt very safe and loved the short walk to the Colosseum. There were plenty of restaurants and stores to stroll by. During our stay Marco and Antonello kept us apprised of transportation strikes or other local shows and celebrations. They arranged a private car for us to the Vatican for general audience with the Pope and also to the Rome Airport. This made for a stress free vacation. We will definitely stay here on any future trips to Rome (we will be back!). Thank you so much, Marco and Antonella!

Wonderful host, great location

  • 4 of 5

Il nido al Colosseo is a great little apartment. The location is unbeatable, only a couple of short blocks to the Colosseum. The owner was absolutely fantastic, he provided helpful information on how to move around in Rome. He welcomed us with a basket of fruits and the basics to survive the night. He even arranged transportation to and from the airport for us.

The apartment is comfortable, quaint and clean, and the neighbourhood is safe, and family friendly. Our only issue is that the apartment is a little bit dark.

We had an absolutely wonderful time in Rome and will definetely stay at Il

nido when we return to Rome.

A Great Place to Stay in Rome

  • 5 of 5

We were greatly impressed with the thought and details that the owners put into our stay at their property. The place was clean, updated and they had directions and details for all I could think of. It is located near the Coliseum, in a neighborhood setting that was very safe for my daughter and I. We slept great every night and enjoyed the amenities of having a kitchen to use when we didn't want to eat out. Great updated bathroom too.

Local cafes, shops and grocery stores were all in walking distance. As Marco would say, "Rome is a city you must walk to appreciate." We understand and highly agree with him. As with any tourist city it is wise to be aware at all times, but we had no problems.

If we ever get the opportunity to go to Rome again I would not think of staying anywhere else!

Clement and SS. Four Crowned, Roman domus, or relax in one of the many typical restaurants, pizzerias, wine bars and ice cream parlors.

The presence of green areas, supermarkets, car / motorbike / bicycle rentals, parking, money exchange, ATMs and more will make the stay more comfortable.
