Location description from owner

The Lazio region

Lazio is situated in the central part of Italy. Close to Tuscany,Umbria,Campania and the tirrenian sea. Its antique history is bound to the Romans and Etruscans.

During the middle age, the Age of Monasteries, five Abbeys were built in the territory: Subiaco(981 AD), Farfa(491AD), Fossanova(827 AD), Casamari (1036 AD) and MonteCassino(529 AD) following the rule of San Benedetto. The sea beaches at the north and at the south of Rome are sandy and well equipped.

Sabaudia has got a famous long beach until the Mount Circeo. The legend tells that Ulisses landed here and met Circe, the sorceress who transformed his crew in porks. Another place of interest are the Pontinian arcipelagos, Ponza, Palmarola and Ventotene. water of crystal, beautiful beaches and restaurants with terraces on the sea.

I Castelli Romani, close to the city, are surrounding Castelgandolfo lake. A beautiful view is overlooking the city of Rome from there. An excursion to the Terminillo Mountain is suggested. Any taste is satisfied: mountain, lake, sea, art and history, enogastronomy and lovely weather from April to October. The winter is not very cold due to the proximity of the sea.

Rome

BAROQUE ROME
The TREVI FOUNTAIN, inspired by Roman triumphal arches, is the largest and most famous Baroque fountain in Rome (standing 25.9 meters high and 19.8 meters wide).

In 1629, Pope Urban VIII, asked Bernini to sketch possible renovations of the fountain, finding it insufficiently theatrical. After the Pope's death the project was abandoned. Bernini's lasting contribution was to situate the fountain from the other side of the square to face the Quirinal Palace (so that the Pope could see and enjoy it).
The Trevi Fountain as we know it today, was designed by Nicola Salvi in 1732 and competed in 1762. The central figures of the fountain are Neptun (God of the sea), flanked by two Tritons. One struggles to master a very unruly "sea horse", the other lead a far more docile animal. These symbolize the two contrasting moods of the sea.


The site originally marked the terminal at the Aqua Virgo aqueduct built in 19 BC.
One of the first-storey reliefs shows a young girl (the legendary virgin after whom the aqueduct was named) pointing to the spring from which the water flows.

Appropriately for a fountain resembling a stage set, the theatrical Trevi Fountain has been the star of many films shot in Rome, including romantic films such as "Three coins in a fountain" and "Roman holiday", but also "La dolce vita", Federico Fellini's satirical portrait of Rome in the 1950s.
Tradition has it a coin thrown into the water guarantees a visitor's return to Rome.

PIAZZA DI SPAGNA (Spanish Steps).

A masterpiece of the XVIII century, the square, with its irregular shape, extends itself at the feet of Pincio hill; on top of it the French Church Trinita dei Monti (1502) is located. Spanish Steps.

The square and the church are connected by the monumental Spanish steps, built between 1723-1726 (designed by Francesco de Sanctis). The Spanish steps, once a year in the summertime, host a famous fashion show, and they are used as a catwalk. On the square we find the Barcaccia Fountain, built in 1598 by order of the Pope Urbano VIII to commemorate the disastrous flood caused by Tevere river the very same year.

PIAZZA NAVONA
Possibly the square that better represents the 'bombastic' Baroque Epoch in Rome.

Fountain of Four Rivers, Piazza Navona It was built exactly at the same place where the Domiziano Stadium was located, in 86 bc (the Roman ruins are still visible in the crypt of Sant' Agnese in Agone Church).

Piazza Navona, which is a pedestrian area now, has 3 baroque fountains and the central one (Fountain of Four Rivers) designed by Bernini.

Opposite to the piazza Navona fountain, we can find Sant' Agnese in Agone Church, which facade (by Borromini) is one of the most famous baroque masterpieces of Rome.

HAUTE COUTURE SHOPPING
The most glamorous Rome streets lead to Piazza di Spagna (via Condotti e via del Babuino).
The area around Piazza di Spagna is where to find the most prestigious boutiques such as Prada, Valentino, Gucci etc. It is an ideal starting point for your shopping in Rome.

Many restaurants, night clubs, wine-bars,bars, theatres, art exhibitions and concert halls are all around Fontana di trevi.

“Great home - close to everhything !”

Reviewed 2 Feb 2013

We stayed here in middle January 2013 for 4 days and were very pleased with Agnes' attention and kindness in getting us situated. She recommended a shuttle-pick up from the airport (Mercedes) and was there to greet us and get us situated. Very clean and spatious property. Both my friend and I were at first concerned about other reviewer's reviews of the 'noisy' bells, but neither of us found them noticeable at all. Very soft and hard to hear actually. I would definitely recommend this home !

“FANTASTIC LOCATION”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2012

My husband, a good friend and I just came back from our trip to Italy. We started off in Rome for a week at the La Panetteria. Agnese, the manager, made arrangements for us to be picked up at the airport by Giuseppi. Even though we arrived late and had to go through customs for 45 minutes, our driver was happy to see us, took our luggage, and drove us to the apartment. It is a lovely, well maintained apartment one block from the Trevi Fountain. Agnese was there to meet us and show us around . She even offered to go to the library with me in the morning to set up wifi. Giuseppi came to take us to the airport, again, on time and a marvelous driver. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

“Charming, spacious and quiet flat in a very central location”

Reviewed 7 Mar 2012

We spent a great week in this flat, located in a quiet side street but an easy walk from lots of major sites (Trevi fountain, Pantheon, Spanish steps, even the Colisseum was only around 20 minutes). Agnese was very helpful and responsive to all our enquiries, both before and on arrival. Internet access would be useful as all Wifi points in the town seemed to available only to Italian mobile phone subscribers and there is apparently no Internet Cafe in the vicinity.

“Great apartment - great location”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2012

We were fully satisfied with this apartment and Agnesa is a super woman who has always helped us and answered all questions. Therefore a big thank you - we had wonderful hours - we'll be back. This apartment is great

“Peace and Comfort in Central Rome”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2012

We stayed 4 nights at this lovely apartment and found it to be exceptionally comfortable and wonderfully central to all key sights of central Rome. Agnese was very helpful and recommended a great restaurant just around the corner where the food was Tuscan, delicious and very well priced. Supermarket for essentials is just up the road. The furnishings and ambiance of the apartment were quality and it has clearly been well loved as a family home. Service was excellent and we could not find fault. We would stay again when next in Rome and can thoroughly recommend it for couples and families. Kitchen a little small for any serious catering but prepared food easily located locally. 2 minute walk to Trevi Fountain.
