The apartment is in a perfect location, between the Monti district full of restaurants, bars and trendy shops and the most important archaeological area of Rome that includes the Roman Forum and the Coliseum on one-side and Piazza Venezia and Traiano's market and column on the other side. Via Baccina is extremely quiet despite its central location.

From the apartment, you can reach most of the highlights of Rome by walking.

About Giovanna Notaro


I am Giovanna and I am the founder of a company who helps owners too busy to manage and promote their Holiday houses and apartments throughout Italy. I create a brand for the properties i select "Italy is a dream", and these properties are listed also in my website www.italyisadream.com. I try to create a selection of properties which allows travelers to have a ' local ' experience and to stay in places that are authentic and not too touristic , where you can taste the essence and spirit of the place.

Why Giovanna Notaro chose Rome

Among all the properties selected this is one of my favorites . It 's really a dream to stay in a penthouse with a terrace and a breathtaking view of the ' Roman Forums ' on one side and Piazza Venezia and Trajan's Market on the other , and at the same time stay in a quiet and absolute peace, whose only noise is the birds singing .

What makes this apartment unique

This penthouse is truly in a unique position, in a secluded street and at the same time connecting the central Monti neighborhood full of restaurants, bars and trendy shops with the most important archaeological area of Rome .

In the attic you can take a dip in the 70's with its very special and vintage furniture,

Sure you do a little hard to reach ( 3 floors with no elevator and 2 internal plans ), but this effort is rewarded a thousand times that you will enjoy the view from the terrace .

It is a very special place.

Great location, wonderful views from the terrace, fun neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

It is a very nice apartment close to the Forum, good restaurants., shopping. The terrace has great views + was very pleasant to relax on. The place was well equipped for two people. You do have to walk up to the 4th floor entrance with some more stairs inside but it worked out fine for us.

Lage und Ausblick hervorragend, Wohnungszustand renovierungsbedürfig.

  • 3 of 5

Organisation hat gut geklappt. Treppen, 80 Stufen, recht steil und eng. Teppichbelag auf den Stufen innerhalb der Wohnung (Maisonette) abgenutzt, Silikonfugen in Dusche mit Schimmelpilz, Küche gut ausgestattet, Spülmaschine nicht funktionsfähig, ein Stuhl auf der Terrasse kaputt. Raumhöhe im Obergeschoss zum Teil recht niedrig, ca. knapp 2 m in der Küche, viele Stufen innerhalb der Wohnung. Wohnung seit vielen Jahren nicht renoviert, auch die Terrasse, aber sauber. Schöne zentrale Lage. Tolle Wohnung wenn man hauptsächlich den Ausblick genießen will und es nicht weit zu den Hauptsehenswürdigkeiten haben will.

Fantastisk tagterrasse - mange trin op til lejligheden

  • 4 of 5

Udsigten fra tagterrassen er fantastik, men der er mange trin op til lejligheden - ikke egnet for gangbesværede.

Très bel emplacement, appartement bénéficiant d'un grand nombre d'atouts

  • 4 of 5

Notre séjour s'est très bien passé dans cet appartement extrêmement bien placé. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié ce bijou des années 1970 dont l'architecture et le mobilier correspondent particulièrement à notre goût personnel. Certaines parties de l'appartement nécessiteraient néanmoins une rénovation.

Nous avons évidemment profité de la terrasse en appréciant des couchers de soleil, ce qui représente un énorme bonheur pendant des périodes à forte affluence touristique un peu partout dans le centre de Rome.

Nous recommandons fortement ce bien!

Günstige Lage, schöne Dachterasse mit schönem Blick, Wohnung nett und funktional eingerichtet, aber eben auch Altbau und 80 Stufen, alles wie in der Beschreibung.

Geärgert habe ich mich über die zusätzlichen 60 € für die Endreinigung, die im von Fewo Direkt angegebenen Gesamtpreis nicht enthalten war.

Owner's Response: Sorry that you were disappointed for the extra cleaning fee, but it is indicated in the notes and we wrote you that there was this extra. Regards Giovanna

Perfekte Lage

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung liegt in der kleinen Via Baccina mitten im Stadtviertel Monti; von der Dachterrasse geht der Blick auf Kapitol, Forum Romanum und das Nationalmonument Altare della Patria. Von hier aus sind alle Hauptsehenswürdigkeiten leicht zu Fuß zu erreichen; die Metro-Station Cavour ist zudem ganz nah. Dennoch ist es in der Straße absolut ruhig. Die Wohnung liegt im 4. OG, insbesondere die letzte (Wendel-) Treppe im Inneren der Wohnung ist ziemlich steil.

Die Zimmer sind geschickt in das über mehrere Ebenen verteilte Innere der verwinkelten Altbauwohnung integriert. Die Inneneinrichtung ist nicht mehr ganz neu, aber sehr geschmackvoll (für Freunde modernen Designs; Anhänger des Italo-Barock werden ihre Schwierigkeiten haben) und funktional. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber. Höhepunkt ist sicher die große Terrasse mit Tisch, Stühlen, Sonnenschirm und einem sagenhaften Blick.

Die gesamte Abwicklung erfolgte völlig problemlos. Giovanna Notaro antwortet prompt (auf Englisch) und war sehr hilfsbereit (Organisation eines Airport-Shuttles etc.). In der Umgebung der Wohnung jede Menge Cafés, Restaurants, kleine Läden. Vor allem das kleine Bistro an der Piazza della Madonna dei Monti (zwei Minuten zu Fuß) ist toll für den Snack zwischendurch.

Fazit: Da die römischen Sehenswürdigkeiten immer stärker überlaufen sind, waren wir zutiefst dankbar für diese tolle Rückzugs-Oase mitten in der Stadt.
