“A perfect pocket of peacefulness in a fabulously crazy city”

This place was wonderful - a perfect way to spend a week in Rome. From spectacular sunsets watched from the terrace to a great area of the city to stay in - i am not sure it could be improved!

Great layout, the air conditioning was a huge bonus in an autumnal heatwave, and thoughtfully furnished, with lots of books, maps and ideas for things to do. It really did feel like a home away from home. The free wi-fi was an added bonus.

The apartment is in an older building that oozes charm, but does mean you have to be fairly hardy to tackle the 109 steps to the apartment with a suitcase.

The area is fairly quiet but has some fantastic local delis and neighbourhood restaurants - and is a peaceful oasis after a day in the crazy Rome city centre. Parking in the neighbourhood is typically Roman madness so good luck if you are bringing a car. Parking anywhere in the city looked like organized chaos, but without any sense of organization, and anything larger than a Smart car just looked hard work.

The apartment is about a 5 minute walk from the tram stop. Bring lots of 1 Euro coins so you can buy tickets on board (1 Euro gets you 75 minutes on public transport). The Tobaci over the road from the junction of De Lellis on the main road sells tickets if you want to buy them in advance. Once on the main road - you can walk 2 minutes downhill (opposite the hospital entrance) to get on a tram... but when you are traveling back home, get off at the tram stop AFTER that one - and avoid a walk back uphill to De Lellis... Save your energy for those 109 stairs!

The tram goes to Argentina which is fairly central and means that you can pretty much walk to most of the sites from there - and takes about 15 minutes. They run from early morning till about midnight (later I think on weekends) - but, at night, make sure you press the 'stop' button in advance to request the tram stops at the next station to save yourself being shouted at by the driver. The trams are new and air conditioned and everyone is friendly and helpful. And remember to validate your ticket when you get on.. there are lots of machines on board to do this.

The lovely owner booked us a car to take us to and from the airport (it's about 35 Euros), which was well worth it, although you can get the tram. In fact, the lovely owner couldn't have been more helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay.

Oh, and bring some insect repellent if you are prone to being eaten by mosquitoes. I was eaten alive on a few evenings - though no-one else seemed to experience any problems. (A quick tip about repelling mosquitoes.. put a sheet of Bounce in your pocket! As someone who is mauled by the things wherever I go, it seems to work like magic in keeping them away. And you get to smell like clean washing.)

I have no doubt that we will be back to Rome, which was an amazing city and, equally, I have no doubt that I will stay here again. I fell in love with the place.
