The estate agents laughed at us when we told them our needs (as did most Italians) An independent house, with no one above or below you. Near a lovely park big enough to go for a run with the dog. A metro station close by. Every type of shop within walking distance. A genuine Italian community i.e. non touristy. No problems with parking. Near some Roman history and a large, large terrace. The estate agent earned his commission as our house ticks all those boxes and many more!
