About the property

In october 2015 - after the success of our first holidays's home in Trastevere (Abritel / Homeaway 666679 and 915116), very appreciated by our guests who have sent us many entusiastic reviews 5 stars - we are pleased to offer another fine apartment in the picturesque central Testaccio district and a building of 1899 at 5 minutes walk from Trastevere. At 200m from the underground station 'Pyramid' and many bus lines that will take you in few minutes in the other parts of the historic center. You can easly also walk in few minutes to Trastevere and Tiber Island, to the hill of the Aventine, to the "Mouth of Truth" and Circus Maximus; in 15/20m to Colosseum and the Roman Forum.

The house overlooks the animate Piazza Testaccio with his famous old fountain, center of this distric full of restaurants, bars, supermarkets and quaint shops and meeting places for young people (pubs with live music, discos, other) which are concentrated around the small Testaccio's mountain (the old roman "Monte dei Cocci") and the Museum of Contemporary Art 'MACRO'. At 200m from our house Greenwich Cinema shows films in their original language.

The house is bright, well furnished with our family antiques, and consists of a living room with double bed sofà, a dining room with kitchen (both the spaces with amazing view on Testaccio's square), and 1 quite bedroom (with private bath+wc) that have a window on a large typicall Testaccio's courtyard. There is also another bathroom (for the guests will sleep on the living room), a storage and laundry room.

For our customers, we have prepared a plan Testaccio, where we indicated, as well as places of artistic and cultural interest, the best bars, restaurants, bakeries, etc., and addresses such as supermarkets, stops bus / taxi, ATM, etc.

About Annamaria and Andrea

A couple who loves the beauty and the culture (ancient and contemporary). Andrea is a wellknow italian painter&sculptor, Annamaria is a casting director(in 2014 his italian film won the Oscar!). They live with their children of 11 years old and a cute Italian Spinone named Pamina in honor of the "Magic Flute" by Mozart.

Annamaria and Andrea purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Annamaria and Andrea chose Aventino Testaccio

We live in the heart of Trastevere, Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, and when we had the chance to buy a house overlooking the amazing Piazza Testaccio, the heart of this ancient and characteristic Roman neighborhood, we do not have hesitate, even in thought as the future home of our son.

What makes this apartment unique

Living in a house that overlooks a large and beautiful square is the top! Our building is also one of typical buildings with a courtyard of Testaccio, built in 1899. From here you can visit walking many historic parts of Roma...but if you like you have at 150m the subway station!

A classic apartment in a classic neighourhood.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot begin to tell you of the glorious stay we had at Testaccio. We all felt blessed. The apartment was perfect for us in every way. My wife Marilyn and I occupied the apartment for several days before being joined by our pregnant daughter and her husband. We found the sleeping arrangements more than adequate. The flat is practically and tastefully furnished and very easy to live in. It was a perfect base for exploring all of wonders of central Rome. The local eateries and cafes were well worth sampling. We also shopped at the local Mercato Testaccio and cooked at home. Drinking home-brewed coffee early in the morning or a glass of wine in the late afternoon and looking out from the apartment's shutters onto the activities in Piazza Testaccio was a simple luxury that only this apartment could provide. I also went skateboarding in the Piazza!

"Our" apartment made us feel very Roman for a week!

Thank you for your kindness and hospitality, Andrea and Annamaria.

Kind regards

Rodney Hatch

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Rodney and Marylin for your fine souvenir of our house in Testaccio: also for us was a pleasure met you and your wife and feel that California and Testaccio or Trastevere, old roman traditional districts but also animate and "alternative", full of new tendencies, are not so far, but close and with a similar spirit. Our best greetings to you hoping to meet you again in the next time Andrea and Annamaria

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay in this lovely apartment. The furnishings are beautiful and comfortable; truly a "home away from home". It was very clean and well equipped with everything you need. We found the location to be perfect; we could walk to Rome's main sites in 20-30 minutes or easily hop on a bus or metro. Then in the evening it was so nice to come home to the Testaccio neighborhood (and get away from the tourists).. Having a glass of wine while overlooking the old Piazza was delightful. Andrea was extremely helpful; supplying us with a handmade local map pointing out sights and restaurants. He was such a kind and generous host. We highly recommend this property and we certainly hope to stay here again.

Assolutamente da consigliare !

  • 5 of 5

Sono appena rientrata da un bellissimo ultimo dell' anno trascorso con tre amiche in questa accogliente casetta che ci è rimasta nel cuore perchè oltre ad essere ben arredata e dotata di ogni comfort si trova in un quartiere tutto da scoprire, pur non distando molto dal caos cittadino del centro di roma (raggiungibile benissimo anche a piedi) ne sembra lontanissimo per la sua tranquillità, inoltre qua si assapora la verace vita romana. Un caloroso saluto al proprietario Andrea che ci ha accolte nel migliore dei modi, con la speranza di rincontrarci presto.

Bellissima vacanza

  • 5 of 5

Vacanza bellissima. La casa è pulita e collocata nel cuore di Roma. Il proprietario Andrea è stato gentilissimo e ci ha fornito ottimi consigli su ristoranti e divertimenti. Consiglio a tutti di soggiornare nel loro bellissimo appartamento, con vista mozzafiato e arredamento classico molto gradito. Connessione wi-fi utilissima, riscaldamento e accessori super ok. Consigliato per tutti. Grazie Andrea!

Owner's Response: Grazie Mauro per la tua bella recensione della nostra casa su piazza Testaccio, "core de Roma". Siamo veramente felici che i primi ospiti che come voi hanno soggiornato in questa nostra nuova casa vacanze siano tutti contenti di essere stati da noi, in questa casa che non è la solita un pò anonima e un pò fredda casa per turisti, ma ha la sua personalità e uno spirito artistico che chi ama le belle cose non può non apprezzare. Auguri a te e ai tuoi amici per un felice anno nuovo! Andrea e Annamaria

Such a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is situated in a great location in Testaccio overlooking the lovely piazza in this historic part of Rome. The location was very convenient and the comfortable spacious apartment had many lovely and artistic touches which reflect the owners. Andrea and Annamaria were gracious hosts and answered many questions about where to eat, places to see nearby, and provided a lovely, hand-drawn map by Andrea who is an artist. My husband and I especially liked the lack of tourists and felt like we were living in a true, Italian neighborhood with wonderful restaurants and great markets. Ostia Antica was a short train ride away, and the main attractions in the center of Rome were at most a 20-25 minute walk away. The metro is about three blocks from the apartment and will take you anywhere in Rome. And the lovely area of Trastevere is 10-15 minutes away by foot. We enjoyed our entire stay (about 11 days) in this wonderful place, and will definitely stay here again when we return to Rome. We highly recommend this place to anyone and look forward to returning in the near future!
