----------------------------

The apartment of 50 square meters (538 square feet) is a typical old home of 17th century just renovated.

It is spacious, clean, comfortable and nice.

It is made for experiencing the real Rome, not an Americanized version.

It is on the first European floor above ground level (USA 2nd floor), with elevator.

It has an original beam ceiling (about 3 m. high).

Its windows overlook an interior courtyard, therefore it is very quiet,

warm in winter and cool in summer as our previous guests reviews confirm.

Sleeps (maximum 4-5):

2 people queen bed (strong and comfortable) in the bedroom;

1 single bed in the entrance;

2 single beds in the living-room

+ cot for baby

Free WIFI connection

The apartment, listed on VRBO since 2006, is composed by:

- ENTRANCE with a single day bed, cupboard (please see vrbo photo 2); it opens on to the living room;

- One double BEDROOM with a queen size new confortable bed (160 x 200 cm, corresponding to 63 x 79 in) and a large wardrobe; it is divided from the living room by a door; its French window opens on to the quiet tiny terrace in the courtyard (vrbo photo 8);

- One BATHROOM with a shower and separate water closet and bidet, hairdryer; its window overlooks the courtyard (vrbo photos 9-10); although there is one bathroom, it is a separate shower/sink area and water closet, an asset when more than one person is getting ready to go out;

- Tiny terrace in the courtyard, divided from the apt. by gates (vrbo photo 11).

There is a beautiful COMMON TERRACE on the roof top of the building, accessible by elevator, where you can bring your pizza & a bottle of wine, sit and enjoy a stunning view on St. Peter's dome, Janiculum hill and Baroque Rome (vrbo photos 12-13)

About mirella

I live in the same building where is the apartment I rent, on the third floor. Therefore I can help guests for any eventuality. With me just upstairs, you will feel visiting family.

I know my town very well as my old family lives in Rome since Julius Cesar time.

I made classical studies and I have a licence in Political Sciences. I have been an official at European Union Commission in Brussels, Belgium.

Then I became a teacher specializing in language teacher training.

I teach Italian and French (as a second language) to students and language teaching methods to language teachers. I have many years of experience in this field.

I organize for my guests:

- lessons (Italian & French for foreigners, cooking, painting, art);

- guided tours in Rome and outside Rome;

- pick-up from/to airports, from/to Civitavecchia port.

I speak French & English and I love art.

mirella purchased this condo in 1984

Why mirella chose Rome

The apartment is in the same building than my home, so I can help my guests on every eventuality. You'll feel at home and you'll live in Rome as Romans do.

My family lives in this area since Julius Caesar's era. That's why I love and know very well my town.

One of the most valued features of the apartment is its location in the old district of Rome: it gets you away from the tourist crowds and right into a wonderful, Italian neighbourhood “Centro Storico”.

Address: Via Banchi Vecchi.

The apartment block is situated between the Vatican and Campo de’ Fiori, in the heart of historical and archaeological Rome.

The location of the apartment makes it easy to get to all the places of interest

(Piazza Navona, Castel S. Angelo, Colosseo… monuments and museums)

either by walking or by taking the convenient bus lines.

Well connected to all areas of Rome by public transportation (bus stops, taxi stands are so accessible).

The area is very safe.

What makes this condo unique

Just around the corner: fashionable shops and characteristic eating places, supermarkets, groceries & bakeries, pharmacy, laundrette, art galleries, antique shops, bookstores, jeweller’s,

Internet Point/Phone Center, banks with ATM machines, travel agencies, post office. A fascinating open air fresh food market is held every morning in the medieval Campo de' Fiori square nearby.

PARKING nearby www.parkingviagiulia.it

On request :

TAXI SERVICE with from/to the airport, from/to Civitavecchia Port.

LESSONS (Italian and French for Foreigners, Italian Cuisine, Porcelain Painting, Watercolor).

MEALS (We can prepare typical Italian meals)

TOURS: Individually designed guided tours, tailored to meet individual tastes and requirements,

can be arranged to show historical and artistic aspects of:

ROME (walking tours or transport arranged with Mercedes passenger van))

OUTSIDE ROME (transport arranged with Mercedes passenger van)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Magnifique.

Appartement confortable (avec ascenseur et vue sur les toits de Rome de la terrasse supérieure) idéalement placé au cœur de Rome : près de Tibre, du Palais Farnèse ou de la Piazza Navona.

On peut faire sa cuisine et la pièce de vie est spacieuse. Et Mirella n'est jamais loin pour conseiller telle ou telle visite ou pour donner des détails pratiques (bus, taxi,...)

Third time's the charm

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in Mirella's apartment in the Centro Storico, simply because it's the best location in Rome. It's a flat easy walk to everything, it's close to the buses you need to get to the Vatican Museum (23, from near the river) or the train station (64 from Corso Vittorio Emanuele), and there is everything you need close by - supermarket, patisserie, cafes, laundromat/lavanderia, excellent restaurants and a newly opened gelateria.

Mirella is a fabulous host, bringing us traditional pastries, leaving fruit and organising restaurant bookings and cars to the airport for us.

We will be back next time we're in Rome.

Don't look further....this is the place to be !

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fantastic ! The host Maria is the best i've ever seen. And the location couldn't be better. Walking distance to the most famous buildings,nicest restaurants etc.

Tip: just rent a bike and cycle through Rome without a guide. This will give you by far the best experience to see what's Rome is all about.

Outstanding location!

  • 5 of 5

Mirella is a terrific lady and will help you when needed. For me, I needed assistance with booking the ride to and from the airport and it went amazingly smooth. The location is in the historic district and it makes it easy to start your vacation with that as your center point. The listing was accurate, and there was a refrigerator and stove to make some meals in apartment if you're so inclined.

The driver from the airport told me something that was very true. Walk down Rome's smaller streets to experience the real Rome. This was very true and incredible that these smaller streets are so busy and there are so many small business, including authentic restaurants and gelaterias, which thrive there. Look for menus that have no English on them and you have found a treat for yourself. Mirella's apartment is located on one such smaller street so enjoy the antiquing, meals, pastries, grocery store and pharmacy on the same block.

I read a few comments about the apartment not being bright. The only thing I noticed is that the ceilings are made from this amazing dark wood with giant beams. This might absorb some light and it is a great trade off in my opinion because of looking at history inside the apartment.

I would stay there again if in Rome and you should be comfortable booking with Mirella.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été enchantées, mes amies et moi, de notre séjour. L'appartement est parfaitement situé pour découvrir à pied tous les sites du centre de Rome et bien desservi par les bus aussi. Le quartier est superbe: un concentré de tous les charmes de Rome, et pourtant assez peu fréquenté par les touristes. Un grand merci à notre hôtesse pour son accueil chaleureux, sa prévenance et ses précieux conseils.

Nous avons passé une semaine superbe. L'appartement est idéalement situé, tout près du Palais Farnèse, dans un quartier plein de charme. Non seulement Mirella est une hôtesse très accueillante, mais elle donne aussi d'excellents conseils pour le planning des ballades!

Location, location, location

  • 5 of 5

The perfect location with the perfect host. Easy walking distance to pretty much everything on both sides of the river. For those days when either the weather is not cooperating or you just want ride, a major bus stop is just one block away (Chiesa Nuova).

All of the usual tourist sights are near and well-described in other reviews, but locally we really enjoyed the shops and restaurants along Via del Governo Vecchio (especially, Frigidarium for our daily (twice daily?) gelato). Across the river, Trastevere is also an enjoyable evening out.

The apartment itself is 3 stars, but you likely won't find anything near the price with this 5 star location.

Finally, Mirella is a 5 star host. She arranged for our transportation both to and from the airport, and was there to greet us and see us off. She checked in on us during our stay to see if we needed anything at all. She even provided a bottle of Prosecco for our anniversary. We would happily stay here again.
