Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Hi! I'm Eva and my apartment is Clarabella. It is a private apartment very well connected with both roman airports. You can reach the underground station by walking or by bus, which stops just in front of my building. The house is new, and there is a bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen and a large and confortable living room in which there is a sofa bed for two people. From the balcony, while having a typical italian coffee, you can see the park in front of the building, which makes the house very silent if you want to relax yourself during a calm afternoon. Near the park three supermarkets, many cafés, banks, shops and restaurants give you the possibility to get what you need just crossing the street. Reaching the town centre is very easy: get the underground by walking or by taking a bus which stops just in front of the buildin and in 13 minutes you can choose to go to Via Veneto , Via Condotti , Piazza di Spagna , Via del Corso , Campidoglio , Colosseo , San Peter's and the Vatican , and many other places in the DownTown. If you want to spend a day on the beach...no problems, metro + train in 30 minutes you'll have a swim in Ostia Lido !
I wish you a very good stay in Rome, see you soon!!

The Lazio region
Lazio, birthplace of two of mankind’s greatest institutions, the Roman Empire and the Catholic Church, is dominated and largely defined by its capital, Rome. Since ancient Roman times the region has been an extension of the city, where noble Roman families created their own towns and the wealthy built their villas in the surrounding countryside. Lazio is a treasure trove of the remains of age old civilizations: bridges, churches, towers, villas, monasteries, aqueducts, arches — the list is endless. To the north of Rome are Etruscan sites and the tombs of Tarquinia, founded in the 12th century BC. The ruins of Ostia Antica, a 4th century BC port city at the mouth of the Tiber are located west of the city, with delightful beaches nearby. East of Rome toward the mountains is Tivoli, a favourite retreat for the wealthy at the height of the Roman Empire. Visit the remains of Hadrian’s Villa, completed in 134 AD, and the beautiful fountains and gardens of the Villa d’Este.
The cooking of Lazio reflects the influence of three important groups. The Jews settled in the Trastevere area of Rome two thousand years ago and have contributed a vast number of recipes, including carciofi alla giudea (deep-fried artichokes); mullet with raisin and pine nuts, served cold as a Sabbath dish; and endives with anchovies. The influence of the bordering region of Abruzzo is seen in pasta dishes like bucatini all’amatriciana, thick spaghetti with bacon and tomato sauce; spaghetti alla carbonara, with beaten eggs, Parmesan and cubes of bacon; and in numerous lamb specialties, such as abbacchio, roasted baby lamb with garlic and rosemary. The tradition of the quinto quarto, a legacy of Rome’s slaughterhouse workers, created a wealth of dishes based on organ meats, such as coda alla vaccinara, an oxtail and wine stew, and rigatoni con la pajata, slow cooked lamb meats in a tomato sauce. While stracciatella, an egg drop soup made with chicken broth is the region’s most famous, other specialties include pasta with lentils or broccoli; saltimbocca, veal cutlets topped with sage, prosciutto and mozzarella; and artichokes alla Romana, with mint, parsley and garlic. Pizza rustica, thick crusted with simple toppings, is a popular street food. Sweets include wine-based ciambellette, a ring shaped cookie; sweet fava beans, often served with Pecorino Romano, a slightly salty cheese; and torta di ricotta, a sweet ricotta pie. Lazio’s wines include Frascati, Est! Est!! Est!!!, Fiorano and Aleatico di Gradoli.
Throughout much of its long, noble history Rome was a city-state unto itself, developing and basking in its own grandeur and uniqueness. Built on seven hills, halfway between the country's fertile, industrious north and balmy, Mediterranean south, Rome has been at the centre of Italy's empire building as well as her inspiring cultural and artistic expressions.
It is hard to believe that the Dark or Middle Ages ever existed in a city so steeped in light and littered with magnificent white marble ruins. The ancient Romans bequeathed such famous monuments as the Colosseum, Forum, Circus Maximus, Pantheon, Baths of Caracalla and Catacombs. From the Renaissance came the Vatican City, St. Peter's Square & Basilica and a priceless array of art treasures commissioned by the incomparably wealthy trade dynasties.
Over the centuries, numerous piazzas, palaces, fountains and churches have congregated, in Rome, to form one of the world's most beautiful cities. And when in Rome, we suggest doing as the Romans . . . strolling the Spanish Steps and along the shops and cafe culture of the Via Condotti and Via Veneto or simply tossing a coin into the Trevi Fountain. From a seemingly infinite number of casual city spots, from cafes to street corners, Romans and visitors alike leisurely view the colourful lifestyle of their beloved city, as it plays out on a backdrop layered by centuries.

I am guessing we were in someone's apartment who moved out temporarily - mouldy cheese in the fridge, started ice cream in the freezer, slippers in cupboard, etc. Lighting was very poor (one broken lamp), a tv that needed a screwdriver to turn on, no wifi, no hot water (despite Sergio coming once to fix it).
I am very sorry for this review. The lady wanted a discount respect the sum that we agreed. To avoid such problems, guests booking without paying any money and only after checking the house we sign the contract.
