In the old days , a very famous family from Florence decided to sojourn in Rome.They choose one of the best place in the city (just close to Via Giulia street) nowadays known as Vicolo delle Palle, and maybe the alley's name hails from the family's emblem, composed of six balls, which originally (but it's just a hypothesis!) had represented six pills, referring to the dynasty's old profession: we're talking about the Medici lineage, so you can imagine how fascinating and refined was the alley in question, where is situated the apartment we're glad to introduce you.
The charm of this "vicolo romano" enchant turists and Roman citizens also today, and for this reason we're fully convinced that you'll fall in love with it and with this cozy attic, composed by three levels (two of which habitable), especially suitable for youth couples, a young group of friends and for all of the ones who don't get tired going up the stairs. You can reach the apartment, in fact, after have gone up two flights of stairs, and just at the third floor you'll be able to come in the attic, where a bright living room with a fully equipped open-plan kitchen is waiting for you with open arms.
Right there, two cozy sofas, a charming fireplace and a big flat screen TV will pamper you during your relaxing moments, while a wide window will warm you letting Roman sunbeams come inside the spaces. On the same floor you can find the second bedroom, with two single beds,a spacious bathroom with shower (the apartment accommodates up to 4 persons). whereas you've to go upstairs to find the "romantic" first bedroom with a queen size bed an entire wall with cabinets .

The Lazio region
Even before the birth of Rome, this territory was called Latium, from the Latin word Latium, inhabited by the people of the Latins, who were so called from latus (extended) in relation to the landscape in which they lived and was located in the area of the lower Tiber. Nowadays this region is called Lazio.
The historical phase is evidenced by the presence of various Indo-European peoples who settled in the area of Lazio since the second millennium AC , including the Latins (from which , the region takes its name) . Not only Latins, but also Sabines, Volsci , Ernici , and Equi Auruncis that in different periods settled in the central and southern regions of Lazio, while in the more northern affirmed the presence of the Etruscans , whose influence proved dominant at least until the fifth century AC
From the fifth century AC to the first century AC the history of Lazio is increasingly identified with that of the struggle for dominance of Rome towards other people , that slowly, slowly , being subject , and assimilated Latin element . The last gasp of autonomy of these people came with the social war .
For the duration of the period of the Roman Empire , Lazio enjoyed a situation of general tranquility, interrupted only by sporadic wars for the conquest of the imperial purple . His role as the center of the empire , however, was increasingly downsized, marginalized in favor of other regions of the empire , until you get to the episode of the deposition of the last emperor of the west, Romulus Augustus by Odoacer in 476 , to which reference is made to mark the end of the empire.
The power vacuum in the region , after various events following the fall of the empire, was filled with the presence of the Catholic Church , whose story determined the history of Rome and the region until the fall of Rome in 1870.
From this time the history of Lazio is identified almost entirely with the history of Rome, the capital of the Kingdom of Italy , with the exception of the period of the great reclamation of the Pontine Marshes , a decade -long epic that marks the birth of new cities , before Lictorian all , today's Latina, and the acquisition of new productive land to the region.
The Second World War across the region , making them pay a high regard in terms of human lives , both military and civilian . Relevant , in this view , were the fierce fighting that took place in the countryside of Cassino and the Allied landing at Anzio
The Tiber River is the main river of the region;
Rome is the capital, and a fantastic city full of ancient history.

"Great apartment in a great location"
