About the property

Perfectly Located Air- Conditioned 2 Bedroom Apartment Ideal For 2-6 Guests

The Avalon Rome is a completely renovated apartment in the center of Rome. With two beautifully decorated bedrooms, a large and comfortable living/dining room, and a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom, the Avalon is perfect for 2-6 guests.

The apartment’s location could not be more central for visiting the city of Rome. In one direction, a 5/10 minute walk will take you to the breathtaking Roman Forum and the Colosseum, as well as the Colle Oppio park (the hill where the Emperor Nero built his golden palace over 2000 years ago.) A 10 minute walk in the other direction will take you to the central train station, where trains leave by the hour for Florence, Venice, Naples and the Amalfi Coast. Two metro stops are also within a 10 minute walk of the Avalon: Line A will take you in a few minutes to the Spanish Steps with its incomparable shops, as well as to St. Peter’s Square and the Sistine Chapel. Only two stops on Line B will bring you to the majestic Circus Maximus, where in past millennia ancient Romans staged chariot races. Line B of the metro will also take you to the regular trains to Ostia, where in only thirty minutes you will arrive at the seaside to visit the ruins of Ostia Antica or have a leisurely seafood lunch on the beach.

Among the Avalon’s services are an English-speaking driver who can do not only simple airport transfers but can also take you on private day tours to places like Pompeii and Positano on the Amalfi Coast.

The Avalon Rome is a family operation, and our goal is to provide a true home away from home in what we believe is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. We look forward to hosting you.

About Salvatore Avallone

My husband is from Naples, Italy and I am from Washington, D.C. We have lived in Rome for the past fifteen years, and have two Italian/American children. We live by the Colosseum near The Avalon and adore this area of the city. We would love for our visitors to feel at home, to experience Italian lifestyle daily.

Salvatore Avallone purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Salvatore Avallone chose Rome

We bought the property at the beginning of 2014 and remodeled it thinking of what we appreciate when we travel: beauty, cleanliness, central location. On foot you can reach all of the important sites of Rome, from the Roman Forum to the churches of Santa Maria Maggiore and the Colosseum. We loved the idea of sharing with others the beauty of the landmarks of Rome and also the neighborhood spots that many tourists miss.

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with this apartment because it is perfectly located in the middle of a busy city, while at the same time peaceful. Because it is on an internal courtyard, it is a kind of quiet oasis. The decor of The Avalon brings together Italian beauty and American comfort.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Sal's apartment. It felt authentic! Just enough room for the 4 of us. We were very happy with the location because the restaurants near the apartment in Monti (those recommended by Sal and one of our tour guides) were much less costly and actually much better than the more expensive restaurants closer to the centre. Plus we were so close to the train station!

Wonderful host and great location

  • 5 of 5

Sal is a great host and makes you feel right at home. The apartment is clean and uncluttered. The only drawback is the shower, which is cramped. Would highly recommend the apartment.

Great location, wonderful accommodations and an amazing host!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about our experience in Rome thanks to our host Salvatore. The apartment was comfortable for our family of 5 with two bedrooms and a pull out sofa. The air conditioning was welcomed after the hot days in Rome. Although we didn't need it, there was a kitchen with all of the amenities we could have needed. Finally, it was all made easy through the efforts of our wonderful host. He even helped coordinate all of our transfers and recommended places to eat! Don't hesitate to stay at the Avalon.

Great apartment, close to The Colosseum!

  • 5 of 5

To begin with let me just say that Sal, the owner, goes above and beyond in his helpfulness and communication! He is so responsive and even shared with us some highlights to visit on our trip.

Once we were in Rome he met us promptly on time at the apartment and helped us arrange for a place to park our rental car. What a nice guy!

The apartment is very clean and very secure. We would definitely recommend staying here and hope to visit again next time we are in Rome.

Clean and bright - convenient to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the Avalon more than anywhere else we stayed during our trip to Italy. Our host Salvatore was available for help and information from the moment we arrived. Everything we needed was provided, including a laptop/tablet in one room and coffee in the refrigerator. If we get another chance to visit Rome - we would choose to stay here the entire time!
