LO.VE COLOSSEUM (38, capo d'africa street)

100 meters from the Colosseum, this beautiful newly refurbished apartment is located in the most ancient and distinctive part of Rome, on the 2 floor of an elegant, quiet 18th-century building, recently renovated.

A walk along the nearby Via dei Fori Imperiali will lead to all the major historic sites: Piazza Venezia, the Bocca della Verità, the Pantheon, Campo dei Fiori, and across the river to the Castel Sant'Angelo and the Vatican Museums.

Another walk leads to the Trevi Fountain, the beautiful Spanish Steps and the shopping area of ??Via del Corso.

It's easy to reach the Testaccio and Trastevere neighborhoods, the first famous for its tasty trattorias, disco pubs and the Porta Portese market (open only on Sundays), the second for its narrow streets, full of restaurants and small shops open until late at night.

The area around the apartment has lots of trattorias, pizzerias, and high-class restaurants where you can taste typical Roman cuisine, and cafés and wine bars where you can have a drink at the end of a day spent admiring the wonders of Rome, set against the background of the Colosseum at sunset...

Within walking distance you can find banks, grocery stores, bakeries and supermarkets, an open-air market where you can buy fresh vegetables and fruit, and various shops.

To make your stay even more pleasant, you'll be only a short distance from the gardens of Villa Celimontana, a summer site for open-air jazz concerts and movie screenings, with easy access to other parks and pleasant strolling areas.

The apartment is well-placed for public transportation, with the Colosseum Metro stop nearby, and easy connections to Termini and Ostiense railroad stations.

On request, when you make your reservation, we can provide a comfortable private car service to take you to and from Rome's airports and railroad stations, and any other destination you seek, either within the city or beyond its walls.

The apartment has been tastefully and fully renovated by a well-known Roman architect.

"Absolutely the Best Apartment in our Italy Holiday"

My wife, Peggy, and I (Malaysian retirees over 65 yo, now citizens of Australia) took our 2 grandkids, aged 14 and 11, to Italy for their summer vacation recently, and stayed in rented apartments in Venice, Florence and Rome. We were most impressed and very blessed by our apartment in Rome ownde by a most helpful and kind owner, Crristiano.

The apartment was not only very modern, clean and equipped with every modern amenity you need including a perfectly-stocked kitchen and a washing machine that converts into a drier (none of the other apartments we stayed provided a drier) but was located within 5 minutes walk of the Colisseum, the Forum and Palatine Hill, the Colosseo metro and a fantastic pizza/pasta joint recommended by Cris that our grandkids absolutely loved.

Furthermore, we couldnt have asked for a more hospitable and helpful host than Cristiano who offered to pick us up from the train station (do consider buying online, the Italo inter-city fast train, it is superb and very affordable with kids travelling free) and drive us around to familiarise with the environs of his apartment, helped us carry our luggages up to his second floor apartment, and when we left, gave us a complimentary ride to view the Vatican City and a hill-top venue to see Rome city, before dropping us at the airport. We paid only what we would have paid for private taxis for the rides to and from his apartment.

My wife and our grandkids really enjoyed their stay in Cris' apartment, voting it as the best! Cris thought of every small thing that would make our stay pleasant including breakfast goodies and even drove me to a couple of ATMs (that was actually located at walking distance) when we needed these. We were indeed blessed by this exceptional out-of-the-way service provided.

We would highly recommend this apartment without any hesitation. You may also find a friend in Cris after your stay:)
