About the property

Self catering luxury penthouse flat with terrace overlooking Rome

Attico Arcadia represents the quintessential accommodation in Rome. A stone throw away from major landmarks such as Piazza Navona, Campo de' Fiori and the Pantheon we a sure that your stay in this stunning apartment will remain in your hearts and minds for many years to come.

Rome city centre penthouse with views over the roofs of Rome and the Vatican. All of Rome's major landmarks such as Saint Peter's, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Piazza di Spagna, the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and Capitol hill can be reached by foot. The high fashion shopping district is only a walk away, the same for the Campo di Fiori farmer's market where you can find fresh fruit and vegetables every day of the week (closed Sundays). The area is also characterized with bustling cafes and restaurants. If you wish to stay at home and enjoy a quiet dinner on the deck overlooking Rome, there is a supermarket just around the corner where you can find all sorts of fine Italian produce. They key attraction of this area is what people refer to as 'hidden Rome'. Walk out from the apartment and take the little side alleys that characterize this Medieval part of the city where you will discover hidden squares featuring buildings with stunning architecture. Most museums are now open on Sundays, the Capitolini museum, the Vatican museum, the Galleria Doria-Pamphili and the Galleria Borghese (must book online) can all be reached on foot. And after visiting the latter why not enjoy a stroll in the Villa Borghese park from where you can reach the Picio with its breathtaking views of Rome. From the apartment you can also cross the Tiber river and enter Trastevere with its bustling nightlife, here you will find the best restaurants such as Le Mani in Pasta in Via dei Genovesi and lots of bars and cafes. The best truffle ice creams are just down stairs in Piazza Navona at the Tre Scalini bar. The best brunch or proper English breakfast (waffles, pancakes, french toast) can only be found at Babington's on the Spanish Steps. On the way back why not stop off at Valentino or Armani's and treat yourself to something new. For sure staying at Attico Arcadia will be memorable.

Amazing, perfectly located, and utterly gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Alex - we had the absolute best time staying in this wonderful apartment. It really is a gorgeous little pad, just perfect for a couple, and is a super romantic little getaway place! We would definitely love to visit again! Terrific spot and better than any hotel you could get for the same money... Enjoy!

Delightful Place!

  • 5 of 5

Rome is such a stunning city and this is the perfect perch from which to explore and experience everything it has to offer. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, you don't quite retreat to a cozy space (and it is cozy), rather you rest calmly above it all enjoying it from a different perspective. The location is so central and convenient. I can't wait to return. In the meantime, I have some priceless memories!

First, the plusses:

Alex is great to work with..quick replies and very understanding and accommodating

LOCATION is fantastic, enough said!

Internet is strong...a must in my book!

Loved the view from the deck, and the bells ringing on Sunday morning!!

The A/C unit in the bedroom is fantastic!

All furnishings are more than adequate...but remember, this is not a huge apartment.

Possible downsides...

The building elevator is the definition of quirky...enough said..

Remember it's a galley style kitchen...tight quarters

both sets of stairs can be tricky if you're over 65 and not in shape (no hand-rails)

I'm not a fan of hand held showers...but that's just me..

All in all, I loved my stay here and thank Alex for all his help!!

Perfect spot in an always amazing city

  • 5 of 5

A great apartment for both newcomers to Rome and those who have loved the city for years. Location is wonderful, within walking distance of many sights (the Pantheon, Vatican, Piazza Navona, even Trastevere) and near to many reasonably priced restaurants (Mimi e Coco around the corner, for example). 20-25 minute walk to Colosseo metro stop (and/or a taxi stand nearby, as well). The apartment itself has an interesting three-level design and is well-equipped and comfortable (excellent wifi, for example) -- with a glorious balcony for enjoying a fifth-floor view (in a building with an elevator to get you to that fifth floor!).

Comfort and Location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed six nights in this comfortable and very well-located apartment in the Campo di Fiori/Navona area of Rome. The Historical Center, the Travestere, and the Jewish ghetto are easily reached on foot. For longer journeys, a taxi stand is conveniently located within a block or so of the apartment.The apartment is on the fifth floor (there is a lift), well above the street noise. The only sounds we really heard were the calling of the seagulls and Sunday mass softly wafting over from St. Peter's. The terrace is a nice feature that offers a panoramic view across Rome's rooftops and brings light and openess to the small apartment. A sweet and fluffy Burrmese (?) cat from the apartment below may choose to grace you with her presence. After two weeks of travel, we really appreciated the washing machine. (No dryer, but clothes line-dry quickly on the breezy terrace.) The owner states in the description that the apartment is not suitable for very young children, the elderly and anyone with a mobility issue,. I would like to add that anyone having a glass of wine too many may also be at risk! The apartment is cleverly laid out on three levels, but with no handrails or barriers to prevent tumbles. I gave this four stars because the apartment no longer looks exactly like the photos. It has obviously been through a lot a renters and could do with a serious re-fresh. For example: the white sofa in the kitchen area has been replaced with a less spiffy but more serviceable green one; the handsome cushioned lounge chairs on the terrace are nowhere to be found; the window coverings have come detached from their fasteners; the nice white upholstered chairs are somewhat spotted; it would be nice to have newer, matching towels. Last but not least, it was off-putting to find a half-eaten container of ice-cream in the freezer.

In spite of these criticisms, let me conclude by saying that we had a very comfortable (forgot to mention the very comfortable bed!) and happy stay. The excellent location makes this worth consideration.

Location, location, location... in the centre of Rome the Arcadia penthouse represents the quintessential accommodation for those wish to visit and discover the hidden secretes of Rome. A stone throw away from either Piazza Navona where you can enjoy the best truffle ice cream at 'i tre scalini' or from Campo de' Fiori where you can shop for fresh fruit and vegetables, we are sure that the Arcadia penthouse will stay in your heart and minds for many years to come. All major landmarks such as the Vatican, the Colosseum, the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain can be reached In 20-30 minutes on foot. For those who wish to experience Rome night life the surrounding area is packed with bustling trattorias, restaurants and bars and trendy clubs. In addition Italian design, fashion and style can be found in the many boutiques that enrich the streets of the area.
