Beautiful and peaceful palazzo apartment on Piazza Navona

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here from December 26, 2017 - January 5, 2018. The apartment was elegant, beautifully appointed, and extremely comfortable. The double-pane windows made the apartment very quiet and peaceful at all times. It is perfectly located on Piazza Navona, and there are dozens of wonderful restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk, and of course many historical sites are close by as well. There is a Coop grocery store only 3 blocks away. The owner, Fillipo, and his assistant, Iryna, were a pleasure to deal with before and during our stay. I highly recommend this apartment! We plan to stay here again on our next visit to Rome.

Great location, good bed, needs refitting

  • 3 of 5

Loved the location of this spacious apartment on the Piazza Navona. It's been well-used and shows it. Basic repair and refitting needed: poorly equipped kitchen, broken floor boards, chairs that are falling apart, lights missing in bathroom.

Dim lighting throughout. No way to adjust the heat. Could be a gem with some attention.

A Palace in Rome

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. Reminded me of my early years in 1960s living in Northern Europe. The "feel" of staying in a 1500s building is not something one can experience in America. Everything you need is here in the apartment, and stores and restaurants are nearby (100yds) as is historic downtown Rome ((Piazza Navona, Pantheon). Can't really top this.Will definitely come again if possibility arises.

Amazing Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this property for two weeks during late September and early October this year. Everything was wonderful from the moment we booked to the moment we left the apartment to head home. The owner, Filippo, and the greeter and go-to person for assistance, Irina, were kind and helpful at every step of the way.

The apartment itself is ideal. It is spacious, well-stocked, well-maintained, and extremely comfortable. Having two bathrooms was great. The bed was comfortable, and we loved the little kitchen! There is a grocery store just steps away, and we bought breakfast food and sat at our kitchen table in front of open windows to enjoy Rome sights over the rooftops every morning. There are also two great patisseries nearby. We kept a stock of cookies and sweets to enjoy at the apartment in the evenings. The wifi works great and the tv has several English channels, including news channels and movie channels. Thanks to the double-paned windows, we could open the windows and enjoy the cool air and sounds of the piazza and the walkway running alongside the apartment, or close the windows and enjoy mostly quiet for resting or sleep. The weather was ideal, but air conditioning is available for hot days. The apartment is located on the third floor, but there is an elevator!

The apartment is located in a building facing Piazza Navona. When you walk out the huge front doors, you find yourself on the Piazza. We spent hours on the Piazza, admiring the three fountains (the most famous is the Four Rivers Fountain by Bernini) , listening and watching the wonderful street performers, and joining the promenade of people walking the oval walkway that goes around the piazza. We ate gelato and had several wonderful meals at the Tucci Ristorante on the piazza and did some of our souvenir shopping there.

The apartment is located in the Centro Storico, the old city. It is a 5 minute walk to the Pantheon, the Campo di Fiori, and the Largo di Torre Argentina and there are many beautiful, historical churches filled with wonderful art nearby. In the area around Piazza Navona, there are many wonderful shops and restaurants.

We highly recommend this apartment, and we are already planning our next trip!

Thank you, Filippo and Irina, for a wonderful stay. We hope to be back soon!

PIAZZA NAVONA is one of the grandest piazzas in Rome, a triumph of baroque art, where Bernini and Borromini challenged each other with their formidable masterpieces. The fountain of the four rivers by Bernini faces the great church of St. Agnes, by Borromini. Nearby, in Corso Rinascimento, Borromini built one of the finest examples of Baroque, the magnificent church of St. Yves, inside the National Archives Palace. Don't miss it!

Piazza Navona is busy all day, except in the early morning, its best time.

VIA DELL'ORSO is a characteristic street of old medieval Rome, prior to the baroque period. It is a limited traffic street, very quiet, and yet very close to most visiting sites.

From there you can easily reach your destinations, all within walking distance: Piazza Navona (150 m), Pantheon (600 m), Trevi fountain (1 km, 10 min), Campo di Fiori (800 m), Saint Peter (2 km), Castel Sant'Angelo (800 m, 9), Spanish Steps (1 km), Tiberina Island (1.7), the Ghetto (1,2 km), Capitol (1.6 km, 20), Colosseo (2,1 km, 25), Ara Pacis (700 m).


Taxis to/from airport have fixed rate (7.00am-11.00pm); at night the rate is by the meter.

Private pick up service to/from airport to Orsetto (3 to 8 people) is in the range of € 50/75.

Train from the airport to Rome costs € 14/person.

Taxi from station to Orsetto costs about € 15.

For City transport, please check this web page in english: http://www.atac.roma.it/index.asp?lingua=ENG. It includes subway and buses. It may help you plan your stay in Rome.
