Living life Roman style

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed apartment more than lived up to its description. Carlo's family was very helpful and we especially enjoyed the treats and pastries. We were impressed by the cleanliness and comfort of the apartment that was very thoughtfully laid out.

Ancient roman sites a short walk away, close to metro & the train, and great shops and enotecas just outside the door. Places to go include the testaccio market, Volepetti, and the gelatorria two doors down. Definitely try the pizza at the bakery two blocks left and the enoteca across from the piazza. The Pyramide hides behind it Keats cemetery, all a must see. No matter what time of day we felt safe and locals were always willing to help.

This was our first time in Rome and we feel any other trip there would be hard to live up to. We will recommend this apartment to everyone we know. Grazie Carlo, you spoiled us!

We have just returned from staying at Casa Testaccio and had the most wonderful stay. We decided as we were arriving relatively late to use a driver Carlo recommended and I am so glad we did, our luxury, it was like having a chauffeur in a beautiful Mercedes and was door to door service for 50 euros. Carlo and Alessandra were waiting at the apartment and took us on a quick tour outside to show us where bus stops, restaurants bars etc were situated. We then went into the apartment and saw exactly why it has got such fantastic reviews. It was completely immaculate, not a spot of dust anywhere, there was everything you needed, the bathroom was beautiful , the bed including linen was like an upmarket hotel bed. Carlo and Alessandra then took time to explain about the apartment and left some wonderful pastries, wine , water and biscuits which were all delicious . The apartment is in a lovely area surrounded by lots of cafes, restaurants and bars. We walked into Rome the first day taking approximately 40 minutes at a leisurely pace the second day we got the metro in which was 7 euros for 24 hours of travel. The last day we stayed locally and found lots of lovely shops and restaurants just across the river. We decided to get the train home at 8 euros each with a train every 15 minutes, it was easy and efficient. All in all a lovely break, we loved Rome and loved the apartment.

Carlo and his wife were so warm and welcoming! Carlo even showed us around the area while our room was being cleaned. They also surprised us with celebratory champagne and desserts!

The location is amazing!! So many wonderful restaurants, shops and markets just steps away. The location is also ideal for walking to the Colesseo, Circo Maximo, Trenti Fountain, among other ancient sites!!

We couldn't have been happier with our hosts and accommodations.

We can't wait to come back for another visit.

Quiet attractive apartment within easy reach of central Rome.

  • 5 of 5

This second floor apartment in Testaccio district is a real find. Not only is it in a very attractive part of the city - it is also within very easy reach by bus, tram and metro of all the places in Rome one could wish to see. Excellent shopping locally. Many places to eat. A quiet and delightful apartment. And all Rome within easy reach. Highly recommended.

My husband and I started our honeymoon on the Almafi coast and then ended in Rome at Carlo and Alessandra's apartment! Well we definitely saved the best for last!! The apartment is gorgeous... everything is brand new, modern and immaculate. When we arrived there, Carlo and Alessandra spent time with us going over the area- how to use the buses, places to see, restaurants, etc. They were really organized and had left maps and everything for us. They are the nicest people!! The location was great... it was close and convienent to everything. Also the bed is plush unlike every other hard bed we slept on in Italy. When my husband and I go back to Rome, we know where we are staying!

#In the same Neighborhood we have an other property that you can visit on the site www.HomeAway N. 6594314

The district is in a strategic position to freely move around the city and fully enjoy it.


It takes 20 minutes to reach us by train (FR1) from Fiumicino airport to Stazione Ostiense and about half an hour using Ryan Air bus Shuttle from Ciampino airport using ryan air bus shuttle and 'B' line to Piramide railway station. Metro undergrounbd station “Piramide” is close by and as well by a walking distance is 'Eataly', a food chain specialized in the best Italian quality food products and cooking recipes of typical foods.


To get to a majestic viewpoint of the city climb up to Colle Aventino (one of the seven roman hills) which will entice you with a romantic sight of Rome from the “Giardino degli Aranci' where you will have the possibility also to visit some of the oldest Churches of the city.

From mid-June to aerly September, walking up to Ponts Sublicio, live demonstration of Roman summers 'along the Tiber Roman

For the lovers of nightlife, via di Monte Testaccio (which rounds Monte deiCocci hill) offers several discos and 'movida' and on-fashion nightspots like Alibi, Radio Londra, Caffè Latino.

Besides the Pyramid of CaioCestio you can find another exceptional historical site: the Monumental Protestants Cemetery for Foreigners (mostly English). It dates back to 1716, with the tombstones written in several languages and often with characters engraved with the traits of hand-writing. The setting is all surrounded by centuries-old cypress trees scattered among tombstones of writers, painters, historians and artists.
