This lovely, beautiful, very romantic apartment is part of a magnificent "Villa" located in a narrow lane crossing the well known Via della Lungara, just where this meets the "Green Island" of the Botanical Garden of Rome.
This park, located in the middle of Trastevere, was originally established in 1883 when the Corsini family donated their garden to the Italian Government. It hosts over 3500 species of plants.
The maisonette is completely indipendent and consists in one comfortable and bright open space with a dining table, a fully equipped kitchenette, a sleeping area with a comfortable queen size bed and a large bathroom with shower/tub.
The enchanting, exclusive, quiet terrace enrich this accomodation with a touch of unique charme and uncomparable grace.
Surrounded by the trees and the soft songs coming from the garden, you will hardly realize to stay in the very middle of the "Eternal City". To stay in this cosy apartment means to experience a country life in the heart of the History and Culture.
In fact, all the most attractive, interest sites are at walking distance and you won't need to take public transportation or car to reach all that worths a visit in Rome.

Nowadays, Trastevere maintains its character thanks to its narrow cobbled streets lined by medieval houses. At night, natives and tourists alike flock to its many pubs and restaurants, but much of the original character of Trastevere remains. The area is also home to several foreign academic institutions including The American University of Rome and John Cabot University (both of which are private American universities), the American Academy in Rome, the Rome campus of the Thomas More College of Liberal Arts, the Canadian University of Waterloo School of Architecture (between the months of September and December), and the American Pratt Institute School of Architecture therefore serving as home to an international student body.
The unique character of this neighborhood has attracted artists, foreign expats, and many famous people. In the sixties and seventies, the American musicians/composers Frederic Rzewski and Richard Teitelbaum, of the group Musica Elettronica Viva, lived in Via della Luce. Sergio Leone, the director of Spaghetti Westerns, grew up in Viale Glorioso (there is a marble plaque to his memory on the wall of the apartment building), and went to a Catholic private school in the neighborhood. Ennio Morricone, the film music composer, went to the same school, and for one year was in the same class as Sergio Leone.
