About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Beautifully renovated apartment, fully air conditioned, in the heart of Monti, the most trendy neighborhood in Rome.

You can get to the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, Campo dei Fiori, Castel Sant Angelo & other historic destinations on foot from our central location.

Just walk out the door, cross the street, & down the stairs into the old world of cobble stone streets, cafe's restaurants, boutiques, open air markets, & our amazing Piazza Madonna di Monti. We will leave you our list of favorite trattorias, pizzerias, & osterias to guide you in your restaurnt choices.

Our green leafy encased screened in terrace is a jewel box to relax in & enjoy a cool drink, or meal. The high vaulted ceilings and light and airy feeling of this home are the first tangible impressions one senses upon entering into this sanctuary of beauty & comfort. No details have been overlooked in making this apartment a fully functional and luxurious dwelling.

The apartment is on the 4th floor of a late 18th century building with an elevator. There are four balconies off of the front & the terrace is located on the same level, off of the rear of the apartment.

The large living room decorated in light colors, earth tones and soft varying textures has an L shaped sofa, large club arm chairs, & a 46 inch HD TV with Sky Tv. The 2000 square foot apartment has a cream colored travertine floor throughout, and is designed in the open space loft style.

The master bedroom has a temper pedic (memory foam) queen size bed, and en suite private bathroom fitted with natural slate floor, large stand up shower and separate spa bath tub.

Waking up to bird song is a poetic experience here in the back yard of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Natural light, pours in when you draw the drapes and start your day looking into the orange trees and garden which face both sides of the master bedroom and bath.

The second bedroom is perfect for a couple with a queen size bed, armoir and balcony.

The third bedroom features an unusual custom built one and a half size bed with a second one and a half size bunk bed above. It is great for a couple, teens or children (four kids can easily sleep in this room). There is a balcony with potted plants, and a black board wall for leaving your daily impressions of your day in the Eternal City.

The second bathroom has a travertine stone stand up shower, toilet, sink and bidet, done in natural light colors.

The modern country style kitchen has a miele dishwasher, Liebherr frig, large stove and oven, plus a microwave oven.

The dining room is designed with whimsy allowing you to circle around the pillar, as well as walk out onto the terrace for dining outdoors, relaxing on the custom built sofa after a day of visiting the monuments which are all within walking distance.

For those who prefer to get to the Vatican, or Piazza Spagne quickly, the METRO, ie the subway is directly across the street from the apartment at metro stop Cavour, on the B line, just one stop from Termini station.

The close location to the train station makes for an easy day trip to Florence, Pompeii, Venice, Positano, or anywhere in the country.

The final cleaning fee is €100.

About Amy Lentini - Owner

Beautiful well presented homes are my passion. I am an American woman, born in CT, educated at Boston College, & Middlebury College and am a former New Yorker. I moved to Italy 20+ years ago to study language, art, history, and culture & opted to stay. My husband is American as well, we decided to build our life together in Italy and it has been an ongoing adventure ever since!

Travel is another passion of ours & now that our kids are college bound we are able to let out our home in the center of Rome when we go on the road.

Italian homes are often of a completely different nature compared to American style living. The real estate market in Italy has been less developed when it comes to marketing properties for sale and rent, overall it is still quite undeveloped. In response to this need, I introduced the concept of "home staging" to the Italian public and launched my site in 2009

For many young architects and interior designers they are finding home staging to be a new source of business for their commercial activities and the great welcome home staging is receiving in the bel paese is testimony to the fact that the italian property market is slowly beginning to change.

I am passionate about helping people get their home staging businesses off the ground and am passionate about beautiful homes!

Come and enjoy the neighborhood of Monti in central Rome, this Best Location is where you can walk everywhere and experience the real Rome, from a real home.

What makes this apartment unique

The open loft like feeling of spaciousness in our home is what makes our place so wonderful to come back to everyday. Rome Center can make you feel closed in with the tourists, traffic, busy streets and daily colorful life. Having a huge, bright and airy apartment with a breezy green terrace makes all the difference in the world. It is silent inside despite being on an important boulevard and the green field behind our building with orange trees, and palm trees really carries you away when you enter after a long day of touring.

Great location, gorgeous apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at this outstanding apartment! I was in Rome for a week long sibling trip with my brother and sister. We are all from different cities so to have a place as comfortable as this was a huge benefit to our reunion. Amy was so helpful in getting us settled and pointing out local highlights and tips. We cooked many dinners in the well-stocked kitchen and dined al fresco on the beautiful terrace. Cannot wait to return. Grazie mille!

"When in Rome" we would definitely revisit this property!!

  • 5 of 5

"When in Rome" we would definitely go back to this property!! It is spacious and so beautifully decorated! The neighborhood is wonderful, great location with a grocery right next-door and restaurants everywhere. Walking distance from the Colosseum and train station, too. Amy was a gracious hostess, so generous with her time prior to arrival and upon as well. She helped us with restaurant recommendations & reservations. She even arranged airport transportation for us. It was truly a great experience and stay for our family ! We felt right at home !

We loved our stay in Rome. We could walk to so many places and had a great neighborhood for exploring. The grocery store was very convenient. We will only stay here when we come to Rome again.

Perfect Location, Perfect Amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place in Rome!! You cant beat the location and its decorated absolutely beautifully! About a five minute walk to the Colosseum and other ancient sights of Rome. We even walked back from the Vatican after our tour but we like walking. I can't imagine a better equipped or more beautiful apartment. Would love to go back!

A Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

5 of us spent a week there in great comfort. Amy the owner was incredibly easy to work with and her hospitality went above and beyond. Ditto all the reviews, and the Monti neighborhood is great. Daughter Isotta Page is also an educated, knowledgable tour guide www.isottapage.com, the perfect anecdote to the umbrella carrying tour guides all over Rome. Call me shallow but a tempurpedic bed, killer shower, large refrigerator and big screen HDTV is a welcome respite from hectic touring.
