In one of the most fashionable districts of Rome, the Prati one, very close to Piazza Mazzini, Via Cola di Rienzo (rich in shops and restaurants) and the Tiber river, this 136 sqm apartment is placed on the 3rd floor of a palace built in the early 1900s (elevator accessible), in a so chic lane that will amaze you.
Just renewed, well fitted out and furnished with taste (the owner is a well-known photographer... the art penetrates in every space!), the apartment is the perfect location for a numerous family or for a large group of friends: in fact, it hosts up to 8 persons, who comfortably can sleep in three double bedrooms and in a double sofa bed in the studio . The guests have at their disposal three coloured bathroom with shower (one of these is ensuite), a fully equipped kitchen (with oven, fridge, toaster, water kettle), a little studio and a homey living room with plants and books.
The apartment has all the indispensable amenities for an enjoyable holiday, such as air conditioning, heating system, a free wi-fi connection, a washing machine and a flat screen TV. So, all is flawless inside the walls, but everything is perfect outside the door too: as I said the area is very central, and in a few steps you'll be able to reach St. Peter, the Vatican Museums, Castel Sant'Angelo and Piazza del Popolo, Foro Italico (for the tennis court and the football matches). But if you prefer to move by public transportation, you'll have at your disposal many options, like the metro A that stops at "Lepanto" and "Ottaviano" at 500 meters, numerous buses and a tram-line in the area.
The Prati district is famous for it's stylish shops and it's lively bar and restaurant, always full of young Romans and tourists. In this regard, I would suggest you to try the atmosphere of Settembrini Restaurant and Cocktail Bar , a café, restaurant and bookshop set close to Piazza Mazzini: with an ingenious and attractive design, it proposes you a complete offer, from breakfast to dinner and also the happy hour.! Furthermore, to have a little bit of fun, you have to stop by the permanent museum dedicated to video games, the Vigamus, a place for kids and for eternal children (Via Sabotino, street number 4).
We'd like our guests to be informed that since the 1st of January 2011 Rome City Council is asking for an overnight accommodation tax on tourist service in the city.
This fee, 3.50 euros per night (10 nights maximum) per person (with the exception of children up to 10 years and Rome residents), is not included in the total rate, and has to be paid cash upon arrival.
How to get here from Fiumicino airport and Termini station:
- you can take the Leonardo Express train to the Termini station (14€ each ) and then the metro A ("Battistini" direction) until "Lepanto" stop (6 stops). Get off and proceed on foot along Viale Giulio Cesare, Via Lepanto, Viale delle Milizie and Via Francesco De Santis.
- If you prefer, I can arrange a car for you from the airport/station to the apartment.

About this location
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.
In Rome the Prati area is a really central area. Buses and metro are available.Very well connected with all the other districts.
There are so many good restaurants with special dishes of the Italian cuisine, Stores and pharmacies.
Near the Vatican Museums, St. Peter, Foro Italico (tennis and football court), Ponte Milvio.
