Guest access

Please note that the apartment is located on the 4th floor and there is no lift in the building.

The neighbourhood

The apartment is near St. Mary Major Basilica, between the Esquilino and the Rione Monti distric. There are many beautiful churches in the Esquilino district – the most famous ones are Santa Maria Maggiore, Santa Croce in Gerusalemme and San Giovanni In Laterano. In between, there is the Museo Nazionale dell'Arte Orientale (only 2 minutes walk from the apartment), showing a notable collection of Asian art, and the interesting Ex Acquario Romano, a former aquarium that sometimes is a venue for art exhibitions.

Nearby you can find several restaurants as 'Trattoria da Danilo' , 'Trattoria Morgana', 'Trattoria Pizzeria vecchia Roma' that offer traditional roman dishes (spaghetti carbonara, spaghetti cacio e pepe, saltimbocca, fettina panata, involtini, etc..). But if you love coffee and pastries, sitting outdoor, good wine and tasty food... do not miss 'Panella', a bit pricey but worth it.

Getting around

The apartment is located in the historical center of Rome, 2 minutes walk from the underground, 500 meters to Colosseum, 300 meters from Santa Maria Maggiore, a few metro stops to St. Peter/Vatican Museums and 15 minutes walk from Termini central Station where you can take the express train to Fiumicino airport or the shuttle bus to Ciampino airport.

I had a great time spending a few days in Guilia's apartment. The neighborhood is fantastic and the location is really close walking distance to key places in central Rome you're likely to visit as a tourist. I also really enjoyed the balcony patio. As stated in the description, there is no lift so be prepared to mount the stairs. Consider it great exercise.

The flat was very nice and well located (close to the colisee). We enjoyed the breakfasts on the terrasse. Giulia was very friendly to us and arranging as we arrived late in the evening and left the flat lately in the afternoon.

Hello! I am Giulia from Venice. I am a photographer and I have always worked in the communication's field. I graduated in Milan and have been living in Rome since 2012.

I am now managing some properties here in Rome. I love meeting new people from all around the world and made good friends with many of my guests. I love travelling, surfing and most of all good food and good wine! :)

When I have guests at my house the most important thing for me is that they feel at home. I give my guests a special welcome and recommend all the nice places in Rome I go to (best restaurants, sights, places to visit,...)
