A Green Oasis in Town with a Magnificent View of S.Peter Dome

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-5)

The major characteristic of this quiet and bright location is its positioning in a green area in the center of Rome, with a terrace where you can enjoy having breakfast over the skyline of the city.

The apartment, suitable to host a family (up to 5 people), is located on Via San Damaso, 15 minute walking distance from the Vatican City, on the top floor (5th, with elevator). The building faces a private park and just below the terrace you can see grazing sheeps, goats and horses, while a family of foxes is asking for food. Forget the confusion of the city and relax yourself just few minutes from the center of town.

All rooms are very bright and cool in summer, due to the position of the apartment. The terrace, the living room, and the main bedroom overlook a splendid, broad, panoramic view of St. Peter's dome and all of central Rome, as far as Villa Borghese, the Pincio terrace, Villa Medici and Trinita’ dei Monti.

It consists of a living/dining room with a dining table, a TV and a a pull-out style queen sleep sofa (160 x 200 cm), one double bedroom (160 x 200 cm), a second bedroom with a single bed, a bathroom equipped with tub and shower, a kitchen completely equipped (gas cooker, microwave-oven, fridge/freezer, , both moka and American-style coffee machines, kettle, toaster and all the necessary cooking utensils, no dishwasher) and a large terrace (20 sqm) with table and chairs. A washing machine is available upon request.

The apartment, totally refurnished, has luxury finishing and parquet floors in every room.

A bus stop (n. 982) is at the gate of the building, taking you to sixteenth-century Rome (Via Giulia, Piazza Farnese, Campo de’ Fiori) or to the Vatican City and metro A “Ottaviano” station. Many other buses are a few minutes walking distance. A train stop (ROMA S. PIETRO, line FR3 connected to FR1 from “Leonardo da Vinci airport” at the TRASTEVERE station) is a 10 minutes walking while a taxi ride to and from the airport costs 40 euro (March 2012). Free parking is easily available in the area, or a private parking place can be arranged upon request.

PLEASE NOTE: Check-In is from 4 to 7 p.m. and Check-Out by 10 a.m., to allow cleaning and preparation for the next guests.

Let us know if your Check-In or Check-Out time requirements falls outside of these hours and, where possible, we will be flexible.

Rome away from home

  • 5 of 5

We picked this location as it was closer to the airport while still walking distance to many of our key interests in Rome. We were very satisfied. The apartment was just as described and amenities were taken care of. Alberto is the most gracious host! We would definitely stay again.

As a family of 4 with grown kids, we loved it! It was very comfortable for us and we had everything we needed. The balcony was lovely, and we enjoyed relaxing after our days out sightseeing. Alberto and his lovely wife were so kind and helpful as well. They had stocked our refrigerator with some beautiful fruit and lemonade and wine! It was such a nice surprise. We love to walk and enjoyed going to many places on foot. Public transportation was very close also, but we usually grabbed a taxi if we didn’t walk. We would definitely come back to stay here if we are lucky enough to visit Rome again!

Perfect! A Perfect Holiday Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is lovely, and the deck, as pictured, has a spectacular view of Rome. Alberto and Anna Maria are the perfect blend of friendliness and professionalism. It was wonderful to have wine, juice, milk, bread, cake, fruit and flowers in the apartment when we arrived. It was clean, quiet, and so perfectly located for walking into the city centre or for accessing transit. You won’t find anything better in Rome.

A great apartment in a good location well served by public transport.

We particularly liked the views from the balcony.

Alberto could not have been more helpful. A lot of really useful information sent to us when we booked.

The sound & light show at the Forum is well worth a visit.

We would book again and have recommended to others

Many thanks Alberto for all your help and advice.
