The Colosseum may be one of Rome's main tourist attractions, but wander up the slight incline from the famous amphitheater and you'll find endless gems of architecture, craft, fashion and restaurants tucked away in narrow streets and quiet corners. We are offering our spacious and luminous home, just a couple minutes walk away from the Colosseum and the Roman forum. Our home is located in the cutest area of Rome surrounded in romantic nightlife and dining.

About Ivano & Claudia
Hi I'm from the US and like to travel a lot. I love to meet new people and learn new languages and cultures. I love to be with people, friends and family. It is a passion of mine to show people the places I love so they are able to share the same love and experience. Also, I love to dance, sing and cook.

Very thoughtful hosts
Ivano & Claudia’s apartment is very sweet. It’s near amazing food...the pizza and gelato were amazing! Having them set up a driver for us was such a relief and set our Rome holiday off on the right foot!
Cozy retreat in the heart of Monti neighborhood
Our experience with Ivano and Claudia was wonderful! They were very responsive and accommodating of our request for earlier check-in due to a flight change. Upon check-in we were shown all the amenities of the apartment and given several helpful recommendations for dining and attractions. The apartment itself was fairly spacious, and having two bathrooms (unheard of in Rome) was fantastic. The shower was quite small, but functional, which is more important. The terrace was a great place to sit in the evenings after a day of walking around the city. Fair warning that the steps to the loft and to the terrace are fairly steep and shallow. The stairs to the terrace are basically a ladder. We had no issue with this but it's worth mentioning if you've got trouble with stairs. The Monti neighborhood was a perfect basecamp for all of the major sights in Rome. Easy walking distance to many landmarks and close to the Termini station where it's only a 10 minute metro ride to Vatican City. There were lots of little trattorias within a couple blocks of the apartment that all had amazing food. We would most definitely stay here again!
So so as is
The apartment had a great location for sightseeing. There was some sort of a water leak and the living room floor flooded. It smelled of water mold. It's could be a very nice place, but work needs to be done to update the bathroom. Moldy sealer in the shower. The hosts were great, very nice, apologetic to the problems and refunded our last day as the water problem needed to be resolved. Once this is fixed it will be a great place.
Great hosts - Terrible mold
Perfectly located, Centro Storico was larger than it appears in the online photos. The stairs to the bedroom/bath and then those to rooftop terrace could be a problem for some, but after a few trips we (fit 70 yr olds) were okay with them.
Ivano and Claudia were charming, gracious hosts who were quickly responsive to texts and calls. Unfortunately, we needed to contact them several times and shorten our stay due to serious mold/drain problems. Anyone would have a problem with the smell, but those with sensitivities or any lung problems would have to leave as we did. The bathrooms were the source. I really hope Ivano can find a solution because he is very well-intentioned.
Very comfortable , clean and tidy.
Apartment was very well situated. Very clean on arrival. Owners were very helpful and professional & available to us during our stay. Bathroom/shower a little difficult to navigate as small but manageable. Local amenities close by for provisions. Would recommend this property and stay again.
Vraiment bien situé
Merci encore l'emplacement était vraiment super. La douche est un problème et il manque de verres à vin car nous en avions un seul mais pour le reste, bel appartement, tranquille et près de tout.
