The city center is indeed very compact, and the entire attractions are wonderful to combine walking with each other. Only the Vatican is a bit outside, which is to be reached by metro, however, and can be combined very well with the Castel Sant'Angelo.

Basically, the sightseeing bus (leaving from Termini station for € 18 / person) is very useful to get an overall glimpse of the city. He stops at every important characteristics and then goes up even to the Vatican to get out, which is very pleasant.

Wonderful home away from center

  • 4 of 5

The home is perfect , very clean , well equipped , you will find everything you need, very cozy , really adorable.

The host is perfect and Pascale also is very nice person 😘

It's a perfect place if you want to escape the city center crowds.

The place is more than great if you rented a car , there is a garage at the villa.

The home is 5 mins away from the train station from which you can go to the center within 30 mins and 2 changes but take care sometimes specially after 5 pm the train is cancelled so you may use the bus which is very close also to the train station but it takes long time to take you to the downtown , so it isn't the best option.

Last train leaves at 10:15 pm (if it arrived) from fidene and 11 pm to fidene (the area where the villa located). The place is not convenient if you love the night life unless you will use the bus or a taxi.

The way to the train station is very steep so it isn't comfy if you love shopping and you come back home carrying bags.

Take care not to leave the windows opened , many mosquitos there. Always Use a mosquito repellent .

A near huge super market is very near so you may buy what you want and enjoy cooking at the adorable villa.

We really enjoyed our stay at villa Simone, it's also suitable if you have a big family as there are 3 lovely bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

The place may look prettier than the photos 😍.

We enjoyed also the piano , the gramophone and the books.

Thanks Simone for hosting us.

A beautiful, restful villa, that has everything--and three minutes walk to train station!

  • 5 of 5

I felt like a celebrity having my own private villa with marble floors, several bedrooms and bathrooms, and AC!, all behind a secure fence and gate. My family could relax in peace, and dream of living like Italian aristocracy in our comfortable and spacious get-away. Yet, after a 3 minute walk we could reach Fidene suburban train station which has trains every 15 minutes to Rome Tiburtina station. The train journey is only 15 minutes long, and then you can transfer to the subway and go anywhere in Rome--wonderful! Our reception was perfect, all appliances and furnishings were great, and my whole family is already dreaming of the time we can go back---thank you so much!!!

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Had a nice welcome and shown round the property.There were some nice food goodies left for us which were very welcome. Very clean.It had easy access to the train/metro and bus route into the centre of Rome. Found a good Italian restaurant recommended by the owners near by.

Would stay again but would hire a car so we could explore further afield away from Rome centre

Beautiful, charming home!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Simone was perfect for our family. The description and pictures are accurate. It is just a 5 minute walk from the train station. The walk from the train station is partly on a narrow sidewalk, up a hill (paved road), then about 100 feet on the gravel/grass driveway. It was a short walk but may be difficult with a lot of luggage. The property was absolutely beautiful with fruit trees, flowers and privacy. The home was extremely clean and well-maintained. Our family enjoyed the covered patio and large backyard. We ate two dinners outside in true Italian fashion and it was quite heavenly. The kitchen was wonderful with everything we needed - we enjoyed the gas stove, two sinks and the natural light shining in from the terrace. The décor is very nice, high ceilings and large, cute bathrooms. This was a wonderful home away from home for our family of 5 (teenagers ages 13, 15, 16) with plenty of room to spread and out and relax after a busy day exploring Rome. I loved how we felt like we were in the country but were so close to the city. There is also a great grocery store just a short walk down the street and we ate at two restaurants within walking distance. It is a short train ride right into Rome. One night we had to take a taxi and were surprised at how close we actually were to the Tiburtina train station. The owner provided exceptional customer service, having her friend meet us at the train station, and leaving us delicious treats upon our arrival. I would definitely recommend this property to my friends and relatives. In fact, I have been home for 5 days and each morning awake missing Villa Simone... the light, airy living room, the birds chirping, the cool Italian breeze! Thank you Simone for sharing your beautiful home with us!!
