Enjoy the charm of an authentic Rome apartment!

Located right in the very center of Rome, in a tranquil cobblestone alley of the historic Trastevere area, this newly renovated and refurbished apartment combines the classic Roman charm of exposed original beams with the comfort and style of modern furnishings. This is an ideal typical holiday home to experience a great stay in the eternal city!

The area surrounding the apartment: The luxury suite apartment is situated in the heart of Trastevere, the picturesque medieval area located on the west bank of the Tiber. Part of the historical centre of Rome, Trastevere is the perfect place to glimpse a bit of the old world while still enjoying the lifestyle of today's Romans. From the cobblestone streets to the overhanging laundry lines, senses are pleasantly awakened with every step you take in this bohemian neighborhood.

Vicolo della Torre, where is located the apartment, represents everything mentioned above. It is the most photographed alley of Trastevere and you will feel very proud to have been chosen so popular and central location.

Equidistant from the Coliseum and the Vatican, Trastevere is an ideal place to discover the secrets of Rome on foot. Saint Peter and the Vatican city are about twenty minutes away and upon crossing the Tiber on the Garibaldi Bridge, you get to Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, the Roman Forum, and many other sights, in maximum 15 to 30 minutes walks. If you want to take public transportation, the area is extremely well served by the electric bus of Rome number 8 or many others in direction of the city. Our stop is Piazza Sonnino, the first bus stop after the brige on Viale Trastevere.

A few blocks from the apartment, you can find the outdoor market of Piazza San Cosimato, where tented booths display a bountiful array of tantalizing fruits and vegetables, or the Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, the most popular gathering place in the area. In this square you will find the church Santa Maria in Trastevere, one of the oldest and most beautiful churches in Rome and very much worth a visit.

The area becomes very lively at night as it is full of trendy bars and dozens of quality restaurants and pizzerias, where you can taste great Italian food at reasonable prices.

If you are looking for a very special accommodation, with all the charm and soul of old Rome yet with all the comfort and convenience of modern amenities, then the Trilussa apartment will surely delight you. Trilussa is the name of a famous Roman poet.

The apartment:

This charming apartment is located on the ground floor of a typical house of 1800 and enjoys a private entrance in additional to the secluded location that makes it not so noisy in a lively neighborhoods. This will allow you to sleep at night, advantage that few holiday rentals can offer in Trastevere.

The house is a confortable little suite, very modern and all renovated, pecfect for a couple or 3 persons of the same family because the third bed is a sofa bed in the living room free of charge.

There is a bed room with a king size bed and a living room with a sofa bed, very well equiped with Tv with a satelite to enjoy your programs all over the world, and wireless internet free and a Nespresso coffee machine with complimentary Italian coffee.

The luxury suite has just come out of a full renovation ( December 2015 ) and represents a quintessential Trastevere apartment. The rustic tile floor and the original ceiling beams bring a delightful sense of Roman history, harmoniously matched by the contemporary colors and elegant furnishings. Guests will feel completely at ease from the moment they walk in, thanks to the captivating and warm atmosphere. The living-dining area of this apartment is welcoming and inviting the guests to relax after trekking around Rome historical centre. In this area you can find a double leather sofa bedt, one single leather sofa, a coffee table and a plasma TV. The open kitchen is fully equipped with everything guests may need for daily living and it features a countertop and two stools to enjoy a breakfast or a dinner.

About Romula Giannotti

My name is Romula and with my husband Claudio we were 32 year owners of a travel agency which was located near the Vatican. That job kept us continually in contact with people for whom we organized travels all over the world. Now we are retired. We are fluent in three languages: Italian, French and English, so we can also help you with all of your travel throughout Italy . You can ask our opinion on your stay in Rome or on your trip in Italy, how to divide the days into the differents cities, how to join the different places, how to decide if it is better to go by car or by train, or any other question !!! We just want 2 things :

1) to rent our 2 houses in Rome, the second one is located in the same lane Vicolo della Torre 12, you can visit the site homeaway #3571450

2) that you enjoy your stay in Rome and your trip in Italy !!! Dont hesitate to contact us !!!!

Romula Giannotti purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Romula Giannotti chose Trastevere

To deversify the tourism activity in a lovely city like Rome, I decided to invest in this tourism concept of vacation rental, trying to give the best of hospitality to our guests for a unforgetable holiday in the heart of the 'Eternel City' Trastevere !

We meet all our guests upon arrival to give them all the explications that they need to enjoy their stay, we offer them our avaibility for each kind of request as buy train tickets, leave their luggage in a little deposit to enjoy their last day in Rome, organize private cooking lessons, private day trips, wine tastings, transfers from and to the airport or the port of Civitavecchia where cruises depart for the Mediterranean, any service that can facilitate their stay in Rome.

What makes this apartment unique

The suite apartment is situated in the heart of Trastevere, very lively at night as it is full of trendy bars and quality restaurants frequented by tourists and Italians too. It is a typical house of the 1800, all renovated inside, located in the most beautifull alley of Trastevere, constantly photographed for its uniqueness. The bedroom is overlooking the courtyard of San Gallicano hospital, today is an historical monument, so my guests can sleep very well without being disturbed by noise that lasts all night in this very special neighbourhour of Rome, especially in summer.

An other benefit is that I have 2 houses in the same lane Vicolo della Torre (www.homeaway.com/228988 and www.homeaway.com/3571450) where 2 couples of friends travelling together can stay in their complete independence while being together.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am use to come every year for one month and more in this little gem that I found in Trastevere, where I fill home and where the owner of the apartment consider me a friend. I hope to come back next year. Every year I through a coin in the fountain. It works !!!!!!

Cozy, comfortable, great location

  • 5 of 5

After climbing 3 flights of stairs in Venice & Florence, it was great to have a ground floor flat in Rome. Location was great for getting to all the big ticket sights either by foot, tram or bus. Romula & Claudio were very welcoming and explained how everything worked in the apartment. Be sure to take their restaurant recommendations, we had some great meals. Trastevere is busy and lively, but the flat is down a little Vicolo which is actually very quiet. It is perfect for a couple, 3 people might be a stretch, unless #3 is a child. I would definitely stay here again if we return to rome.

Beautiful Trilussa in Trastevere!

  • 5 of 5

Romula was waiting for our car service in piazza Galicano and escorted us to Trilussa, Vicolo delle Torre-9. The apartment was amazingingly perfect with an orange motif and Van Gogh prints, pillows and bed linens. Romula patiently went through the apartment with us. She suggested grocery stores, markets, forni and restaurants. She takes great pride in her property and neighborhood. We have been to Rome over a dozen times and visited Trastevere many times but this was the best. You step out of the front door into Vicolo delle Torre and you feel as if you are standing in a postcard of the perfect little side street in Rome. It was enchanting. We felt like Romans.

Romula recommended several restaurants within a very short walk from the apartment, all of which were good. She especially liked Osteria der Belli and gave us the card with the owners name on it, Leo, and Romula's husbands name, Claudio, with the suggestion to introduce ourselves if we decided to go there. We went, met Leo,were very well treated by the waitstaff and had a great meal, and when compared to NYC prices it was a bargain. It snowed while we were there and it was spiritually uplifting watching the Roams and the folks of Trastevere deal with the winter wonderland suddenly thrust upon them. We will be returning to Trilussa in the future and will recommend it to all of our friends and acquaintances. Thank you Romula for our best visit to Rome. Our best to you Romula and Claudio for continued good health! Jim and Donna Scott

Old world charm and modern conveniences in Trastevere

  • 5 of 5

This charming apartment in Trastevere was a welcome sight upon arriving to Rome by train. A walk-in level dwelling, it is at the end of a tiny cobblestone alley. The owners were very generous with their time, showing us around the space they had carefully and proudly restored and suggesting wonderful places to eat, shop and visit. I loved the spacious closet for our things and the cozy bed, wonderful shower, and luscious warm towels. Romula made arrangements for our ride to the airport which could not have gone better. We totally enjoyed this special place and hope return soon.
