Photos and Description of this holiday studio in Trastevere - Il Borghetto Della Torre

A very typical loft with a particular view of Vicolo della Torre

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 holiday home to experience a great stay in the eternal city!

The area surrounding the apartment:

'The Amazing little 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 you get to Campo dei Fiori, the Jewish Quarter, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, the Roman Forum, and many other sights, in no time at all (15 to 30 minutes walks maximum). If you want to take public transportation, the area is extremely well served by the electric buses of Rome.

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 and wine 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 Amazing little Suite in Trastevere' will surely delight you.

I want to emphasize 5hat this typical Roman house of 250 years is locate3d in one of the most beautiful lane of the ancient Rome, continually photographed by tourists be3cause Vicolo Della Torre looks like a typical Roman village in the heart of a big city like Rome.

I recommend this little suite ton all those who are not looking for a simple accommodation in Rome, but to all those who want to experience a special house of other times with all the modern comforts as free WiFi by optic fiber, air conditioning or heating, satellite TV that means your favorite programs in your language.

The apartment:

This charming apartment is located on the first floor ( 12 stairs ) 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 as Trastevere. This will allow you to sleep at night, advantage that few holiday rentals can offer in this particular neighborplace of Rome.

The house is a comfortable little Suite, very modern and all renovated, pecfect for a couple. There is a king size bed with a living room, very well equiped with tv with a satelite to enjoy your programs all over the world, and wireless internet free.

On the ground floor, the Suite has a room, which has a key, available to our guests, where they can leave the luggage that they dont need for their stay in Rome. We refer to our guests coming to Europe to spend a long holiday, ridind two seasons, with several suitcases that will occupy a lot of space at home. You should take advantage of this opportunity especially for a short stay in Rome. This same place will also be used to store your luggage in case you booked a flight in the afternoon or evening the day of departure and you want to enjoy an other day in Rome.

The amanzing little suite has just come out of a full renovation in July 2013 and represents a quintessential Trastevere apartment. The rustic tile floor and the original wall behind the bed, 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 , a coffee table and a plasma TV. The 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 are 32 year owners of a travel agency which is located near the Vatican. That job keeps us continually in contact with people for whom we organize travels all over the world. 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, we will be very happy to give you our opinion, the places to visit, the minimum stay in a city, and other details.

From the moment you book the Suite, you can consider to have a friend in Italy who will do her best to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

I will meet you the day of your arrival to give you all the necessary informations about places to visit, what to avoid, local restaurants, transport and local customs.

You can contact me any time via phone or email and I will answer you as soon as possible to any information you need.

I am living near the Vatican and with my little Smart I can be in Trastevere in only 10 minutes to resolve any situation.

For this reason I have so many friends around the world and through them I receive many reservations of their friends who in turn recommend other friends, this is my advertising and especially my satisfaction. I have 2 houses in the same lane Homeaway #228988 my first house that has 7 years old and when I received a couple that repeated their stay for 3 times in my house !!!!!!!!!

Romula Giannotti purchased this studio in 2013

Why Romula Giannotti chose Rome

To deversify the tourism activity in a lovely city like Rome, I decided in 2007 to invest in this new tourism concept of vacation rental, trying to give the best of hospitality to our guests for an unforgetable holiday in the heart of the 'Eternel City' Trastevere ! I meet all my guests upon arrival to give them all the explications that they need to enjoy their stay. I begun with one house, 'Trilussa' apartment homeaway #228988 and now I have two!

Why this propoerty????

I fell in love with Vicolo della Torre and I am sure it will be the same for you !!!!!!!

A very typical location, with a private entrance, an unforgettable atmosphere.

What makes this studio 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 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. It is important for a tourist to stay very centraly because everything is nearby walking distance. The greater advantage of Trastevere is that when you return home after a long day, after a shower, you will find behind the corner of the house a choice of places when to spend an evening with the most pleasant restaurants, music, pubs and fun. The location of the little Suite is perfect to spend a quiet night because situated in a little lane, Vicolo della Torre, and not on a main street of this noisy and lively neighborhood.

A second benefit is to live in the same way of local people, as my neighbor Gianfranco who is born in this house. You can see that it still uses to hang the washing out of the windows, for this reason you will have a laundry line out of your window to live this unique experience.

Sanctuary from the wile of Roma!

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful in so many ways. It is sweet inside and out. The outside is often photographed because the street is just so sweet and charming. It is in a wonderful neighborhood of Rome. We were on a day-trip in Rome and they actually referenced Trastevere as the best neighborhood for food in all of Rome. The location is perfect. It is close enough to the sights of Rome that you can walk to and from (expect to do a lot of walking in Rome) but also gives you some peace away from the craziness. Romula and her husband were fantastic. So helpful with suggestions and they were there if we had any questions (which we didn't but we had Romula's contact information). We stayed for a few days on our honeymoon tour of Italy. I would highly recommend this place to any of my friends (and actually am for one who is visiting Italy next year). I've stayed in a good bit of HomeAway's and this one is definitely one of the best for price, location, and charm. Book it! You won't regret it!

This was our first trip to Italy and I was overjoyed with all of our choices especially the wonderful choice in staying in Romula's and Claudio's beautiful home. We were greeted at the airport by Antonio who was a driver arranged by these wonderful hosts. Upon arriving in Trastevere both hosts were there to happily greet us. They are warm and delightful and were happy to share all their knowledge of Rome with us. They gave us information about the grocery, restaurants, pharmacy. The apartment is just as depicted in the photos and we were photographed several times as it is so picturesque. The location is phenomenal and we walked everywhere including to the Borghese Gardens and we are not athletic by any measure. This area is very safe and very old world which we loved. Romula assisted in getting us a new sim card for our mobile phone so we could stay in touch with our family in the USA. This was a wonderful trip and I will be forever thankful to our wonderful hosts and their wonderful home. I will be recommending this to many of our friends and family and know they will not be disappointed. Thank You Romula and Claudio for making this a dream vacation of a lifetime. I threw a coin in the Trevi Fountain to insure my return to Rome and when I do I will be contacting Romula and Claudio. Jean and Rey - St. Petersburg, Florida

Amazing Trastervere Experience

  • 5 of 5

Romula and Claudio are very nice people. They were extremely helpful regarding restaurants, what important sites were within walking distance of the apartment and, when we had to leave, got us a taxi and insured that the driver treated us as he would a local.The apartment itself is small but adequately equipped. It is right in the heart of Trastevere and gave us a true Rome experience. Would stay again if we get to Rome again.

The Amazing Little Suite In Trastevere

  • 5 of 5

We were met at the apartment by Romula and Claudio who gave us excellent tips for our stay in Rome. The location in Trastevere is close to all the sites in Rome. We chose to walk to the Vatican, Colleseum, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Circus Maximus, AS Roma football etc. If you prefer public transport the trams, buses and taxi's are a 2 minute walk away. The apartment is located within touching distance of many restaurants and bars. Claudio gave us tips on where to eat and we found these to be excellent. The apartment is very clean and well presented. I would recommend this apartment

A true immersion in la vita romana

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in our suite in Trastevere. Mrs Romula and Mr Claudio were very welcoming and helpful in providing information about Rome and Italy. The location was perfect to walk to every site we wanted to see and even though if the apartment was in a busy quarter, it was always quiet, comfortable and cool. We had a wonderful time preparing small meals with food we bought in the near by boutiques. We would recommend this apartment to anyone traveling in Rome.

Ten out of ten! Great location, apartment, and hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Romula and her husband Claudio gave us a good overview of the city once we arrived and their restaurant recommendations we fantastic. The location is perfect, a block away from the river, and we saw many people taking photos of this picturesque little street. The apartment itself was well equipped and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.
