Ref. 9151 - This pretty apartment is on the 3rd floor, without a lift, in a building which has been around since around the year 1700. The apartment, as well as the inner parts of the building have been revamped again over the years. Nowadays, the apartment, although it still preserves the charm of its past, has been revamped to offer guests the maximum possible comfort. The apartment is divided up into: a very big bedroom, which is approximately 4 x 4 metres, and furnished with a double bed, a wardrobe, an armchair and also has air conditioning; a bathroom with a shower, a washbasin and a toilet; a living room, furnished with a double sofa bed, a TV, a table and chairs and a sideboard; a cooking area, furnished with a sink, an electric slow cooker, a fridge and other furniture. The big windows in the living room oven up to the magnificent TREVI FOUNTAIN monument and from here, you can fully enjoy the atmosphere and the charm which this monument manages to create. This apartment is completely furnished with bed linen, as well as towels for the bathroom. The cooking area is furnished with pans, dishes, cutlery and everything you might need to be able to make simple meals. It also has air conditioning and independent heating.
LOCATION: This pretty apartment is located in one of the buildings which are the 'corner' of the marvellous TREVI FOUNTAIN SQUARE. What can we say? This apartment is in the heart of the old heart of the city and you surely can't be in a better location to be able to fully savour the magic atmosphere of this fantastic city. The best thing about this apartment is having the living room windows open out on to the glorious TREVI FOUNTAIN. Staying in this apartment is like having a seat in the front row in the theatre of history. You can see the hot sun play with the white travertine or the moon reflected in its waters. Surely the excitement of staying here will stay in your heart for years to come. SUGGESTIONS: This apartment's location is ideal for to be able to visit the old heart of the city, because you can get to the SPANISH STEPS in no time at all. Where you can maybe even have a last ice cream while you're sitting down on the steps of the TRINITÀ DEI MONTI, whilst being fascinated by the atmosphere that only these places know how to create. Right behind the apartment you can find (you can only visit it on Sundays from 8.30am-12.30pm); from the PIAZZA DI MONTE CAVALLO you can easily get to the entrance to MERCATI TRAIANEI. When you visit this model of a shopping centre from the Roman period, you can understand that the joy of buying things was also appreciated in the old Rome. There are very often international artists' displays where the Mercati Traiani normally are. From here, you can admire how the FORO DI TRAIANO stands out. Piazza Venezia opens up in front of you as well as how the home altar stands out in the background, which was affectiously called L'ORGANO by the Romans, and after a visit this imposing monument from the 900s, going back to the most harmonious art works from the Roman period is the best way to make your eyes open, and also at this point a visit to the CAPITOLINI is a must, because artistic testimonials, whcih are surely the best thing in the museum, are housed here, so you can let yourself go surrounded by our glorious past. Before carrying on with our visit of the historical places which surround the square where the apartment is located, I have to give you a detailed description of the apartment itself. When you come out of the apartment and go through the violets, and discover old Rome's suggestive corners, you will certainly find it pleasing to get to PIAZZA DI MONTECITORIO, the PANTHEON and PIAZZA NAVONA. But Rome isn't only famous for its monuments or for its archaeological areas, but also for the shops you can visit. So what are you waiting for? An afternoon shopping along the Via del Corso or the Via del Babbuino, what's better to have a break from the churches and the museums? This only aims to be a small description of the many, many monuments you can visit while you're in Rome. Living in this fantastic city is like living a dream which changes subject day after day. You can never see all there is to see in Rome, every alleyway, every square, day after day, gives you something new, something unexpected. This apartment is the gateway which will let you be a part of this dream and allow you to discover the charm hidden in this old capital, the CAPUT MUNDI.

Description: One of the most famous monuments in the area of Trevi is the Fontana di Trevi (Fountain), an absolute gem of baroque style that thousands of people flock to visit every day to throw a coin into its water as tradition dictates. There are different views on the origins of the name; the most well-known is that it comes from the Latin word trivium meaning the place where three ancient streets meet; and today the location of the famous fountain. It is divided into two areas; the highest is the colina del Quirinale and the other lower down is near to the River Tíber. El Quirinale was the former centre of papal rule and later that of the government, a function that it maintains today and is also home to the President of the Italian Republic. Other buildings to be found in the district are the Palazzo Barberini (Palace), the Fontana del Tritone (Fountain), the SS. Apostoli church, Sant'Andrea al Quirinale church, the Jardines del Quirinale (gardens), the Scuderie del Quirinale, and the Via delle Quattro Fontane, the street giving the name to the Borromini's famous church San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane. Currently the district is delimited by one of the centre's main avenues the Via Nazionale, part of the Via del Corso, the Via del Tritone and la Via Barberini, that contains a great number of shops and bars as well as different transport options. It is one of the oldest areas in Rome. A whole number of restaurants, taverns, shops and bars are also hidden away in little side streets, and it is an ideal place to wander aimlessly taking in the sights and sounds of the daily life and flow of the locals. An absolutely perfect location, moving around from the Rione Trevi is very straightforward. In just a short time you can reach numerous areas all over the city .The nearest metro stop is Barberini, línea A whilst in Via Nazionale and Via del Tritone different buses travel to the Termini train station whilst others will take you down towards the Piazza Venezia and the Tíber. It is equally feasible to walk, since it is a very central location.
