Brit & Italian couple with bright & cozy room (double, single or twin) in well-connected, sophisticated area close to central Rome & Tiburtina station, Bologna metro 3 mins walk. Home-made bread, great coffee, trip advice & language assistance.
We have a bright and airy room in a large 1930s apartment in the heart of Rome. It can be configured for a couple, a single traveller, or two friends - let us know.
The apartment is in a Mussolini-era building, and is opposite the Police training college, so it's both safe and quiet in the evenings. There's an amazing view from the living room to the Appenine mountains.
There's high-speed fibre-optic wifi, and the room has a notebook computer for guests to use if required. Guests also have near-exclusive use of one of the bathrooms during their stay. Towels, shower gel, shampoo etc. provided.
Interaction with guests
We're seasoned travellers ourselves, and we know what travellers need and want. Jim is British and Stefy is Italian, so any questions about Rome you need answering we can help with. Jim has worked in the tourism industry in Rome so has intimate familiarity with most of the attractions, and can help out with recommendations, pre-booking tickets, etc. Stefy is a born-and-bred Roman with fluent English, so she knows the score, can tell you about Roman life, culture and food, and can help you out booking restaurants etc. or if you have any linguistic difficulties.
We look forward to hanging out with you - or we can leave you the hell alone - just let us know.
Other things to note
Jim is a keen amateur baker, so you will be treated to home-baked bread during your stay.
You can smoke on the balcony.
I'm a born expat with a passion for other cultures, other peoples, and in particular other food. I've lived in many different parts of the world and have spent most of the rest of the time travelling - sometimes planned but mostly by accident. Living an unplanned life can cause troubles, but the rewards of spontanaiety are greater than them.
Stefy is a university researcher with a passion for travel, who's spent time in south and central America.
Right now we're settled in central Rome, but who knows what the future may bring us?
