Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Ref. 4402 - This apartment is located on the first floor of a building with lift, in the district of Cinecittà (well-known for its famous CINECITTÁ MOVIE STUDIOS and perhaps even more famous because of the proximity to the very famous Parco dell'Appia Antica). The residential setting in which this apartment is located is a recently new urbanization and for that reason it includes all the services and structures that make the apartment very functional and comfortable (wide streets, stores, international level shopping centres). In this area there is the tube line A, the nearest stations are Cinecittà and Anagnina.
From this district it is possible to reach the famous CASTELLI ROMANI, a series of small towns (best known: FRASCATI, GROTTAFERRATA, SAILOR, CASTEL the GANDOLFOS) who embellish the south of the capital, very well known for its history, culture, gastronomic tradition and its relation to wine, and the particular organization for tourism.
In the apartment, besides finding a large collection of opuscules and maps of the archaeological places and monuments of the capital, you will find a small and modest book collection that tells the anecdotes and curiosities of the old Rome. About two kilometres from the apartment there is the famous OLD APPIAs PARK and the very well-known Villa dei Quintili.
The apartment is perfectly furnished and offers all services to the guests in the most comfortable way possible. You will find sheets and towels, a furnished and functional kitchen, and many small details that emphasize the importance that the guest has in this alternative service to staying in a hotel. I can send the links to a few websites that describes the characteristics of the Cinecittà area.
The apartment consists of a dormitory furnished with a double bed, a closet and small night tables. A second bedroom suitable for up to two people. A living room of about 20 m² furnished with two double sofa beds, furniture with TV and a table with chairs. The kitchen has space for eating and is equipped with all the household-electronic appliances that you may need like an oven, stove, washbasin, microwave, refrigerator with freezer, and also, by all means, all the objects that make it functional (plates, cutlery, pots, etc.), a table and chairs. The door-window of the kitchen allows the access to a splendid balcony furnished with a table, chairs and curtains for the sunny days: in spring and summer it is a pleasure to be able to have breakfast outdoors, under the first rays of the sun. The bathroom is well furnished and has a large bathtub and a shower.

Description: This area of Rome developed around the beginning of the 1930s and encompasses a mixture of residential and popular districts. It was originally created to provide accommodation to the working class that had settled in the east of the city during the economic boom. Its growth expanded irregularly around the edge of the Roman countryside (Agro Pontino), and therefore gathered groups of peasants, workers, unemployed civilians and all those the regime had moved out of the centre of the city to make way for the construction of the Fori Imperiali. Its social structure perfectly reflected the sheer diversity of Italian economic development and the area also became famous for its resistance to fascism in the years of the Duce regime. Its development continued over time and a real milestone was established with the construction of the metro, and the Stazione Tiburtina (the second most important in Rome) providing direct connections with the rest of the city. These areas really provide visitors the chance to experience a Rome that is not found in the tourist guides the periphery of the city and its authenticity. Despite its distance from the centre there are also a number of places of tourist interest. Another river, the Aniene crosses the east of Rome. In the past the river was used by the Romans for the transport of merchandise, and there was actually a river port located close to the spot which today displays the remains of the II century Villa Romana di Ripa Mammea. There are also a number of Roman tombs located in various locations (Via Tiburtina), an ancient volcanic mine on the Banks of the River Aniene (Adriane era), ruins of Roman Villas and the remains of houses from this period. The area surrounding the River Aniene has an ample selection of places of cultural and historical interest such as the natural reserve, the Riserva natuale della Valle dellAniene, a protected area that stretches over 350 hectares. Likewise the Museo di Casal de Pazzi is home to part of a Pleistocene deposit that dates back over 200,000 years and includes the ancient river channel where remains and bones were deposited by its flow. Along the Via Casilina there are numerous historical buildings from the Decline of the Roman Empire that include the Catacombe di Marcellino e Pietro and the Mausoleo di Elena, one of the most important architectonic complexes of Paleo-christian Rome from the IV century. A walk towards the south leads to the famous film studios the Cinecitta that have hosted some of the most famous faces in Italian and foreign cinema. The area is also popular for its shops and busy commercial district and attracts many Romans for its shopping possibilities. The east of Rome is also home to a number of parks and one particularly worthy of mention is the Villa Gordiani, an archeological park that includes the ruins of an ancient patrician villa, named after the family that gave Rome three emperors. The area is served by different forms of public transport including two metro lines (A and B) and several bus services that connect with the rest of the city. There are also frequent train services from the Stazione Tiburtina to Fiumicino Airport.
