----------------------------

The apartment of 50 square meters (538 square feet) in a typical antique palazzo from 17th century.

It is spacious, clean, comfortable and nice.

It is made for experiencing the real Rome, not an Americanized version.

It is on the first European floor above ground level (USA 2nd floor), with elevator.

It has an original beam ceiling (about 3 m. high).

Its windows overlook an interior courtyard, therefore it is very quiet,

warm in winter and cool in summer as our previous guests reviews confirm.

Sleeps (maximum) 4-5

2 people queen bed (strong and comfortable) in the bedroom;

1 single bed in the entrance;

2 single beds in the living-room

+ cot for baby

About mirella

I live in the same building of the apartment, on the third floor and I am always happy to help guests for any eventuality. If you wish, you will feel like visiting family! :-)

I know my town very well as my old family lives in Rome since Julius Cesar time.

I studied classical studies (history and arts), and I have a licence in Political Sciences. I have been an official at the European Union Commission in Brussels, Belgium.

Then I became a teacher specializing in language teacher training.

I teach Italian and French to students and language teaching methods to language teachers. I have many years of experience in this field.

I am happy to organize for my guests:

- lessons (Italian & French for foreigners, cooking, painting, art);

- guided tours in and outside Rome;

- pick-up from/to airports, from/to Civitavecchia port.

I speak French & English and I love Italian cooking and art.

mirella purchased this condo in 1984

Why mirella chose Centro Storico

The apartment is in the same building as my home, so I can help my guests on every eventuality. You'll feel at home and you'll live in Rome as Romans do.

My family lives in this area since Julius Caesar's era. That's why I love and know very well my town.

One of the most valued features of the apartment is its location in the historical center of Rome: it gets you away from the tourist crowds and right into a wonderful, Italian neighbourhood “Centro Storico”.

Address: Via Banchi Vecchi.

The apartment block is situated between the Vatican and Campo de’ Fiori, in the heart of historical and archaeological Rome.

The location of the apartment makes it easy to get to all the places of interest

(Piazza Navona, Castel S. Angelo, Colosseo… monuments and museums)

either by walking or by taking the convenient bus lines.

Well connected to all areas of Rome by public transportation (bus stops, taxi stands are easily accessible).

The area is very safe.

What makes this condo unique

Just around the corner: fashionable shops and characteristic eating places, supermarkets, groceries & bakeries, pharmacy, laundrette, art galleries, antique shops, bookstores, jeweller’s,

Internet Point/Phone Center, banks with ATM machines, travel agencies, post office. A fascinating open air fresh food market is held every morning in the medieval Campo de' Fiori square nearby.

PARKING nearby www.parkingviagiulia.it

On request :

TAXI SERVICE with from/to the airport, from/to Civitavecchia Port.

MEALS (We can prepare typical Italian meals)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time in Rome, and this great apartment was a major reason why!

The location was great to do all the daily site-seeing tours we planned and the surrounding area was a joy to explore.

If we come back we will give you a call !!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great neighbourhood, very central location. Mirella was a great host, both before arriving and during our stay she promptly answered and questions about the apt and area. The apt was very comfortable and so were the beds. Mirella was also very helpful in assisting me with my suitcase that never arrived on my flight, she even lent me clothes & shoes! Overall, it was a great stay!

Short little stay

  • 5 of 5

The place was great. Nice little place tucked away for a family of 5. Great part of the city that is easy to get around. Great nightlife around the area. Beautiful city so many things to see and not enough time.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment in a great location. Very quirky (which we mean as a compliment) and so convenient for all the things we wanted to see and do. Have recommended to another person and will do so again when the opportunity arises. Only thing we'd change? We'd not come in July - Rome was just too hot then.

Location, location in beautiful area of Roma

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time and stay in the apartment, it is spacious and Mirella the owner is very nice and helpful in finding your way around Roma. The apartment has also access to a rooftop terrace and we had a couple of times food and wine up there. It was very hot and humid during our stay in Roma and the apartment has no air conditioning and that was a minor point but there were big fans to keep the air going. The biggest plus of the apartment is the location in a nice old part of Roma with many nice shops, restaurants, coffee shops etc. around but it is a very quiet apartment. You can walk to many interesting attractions and areas. We enjoyed our stay a lot.

Great stay in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My two daughters and I spent 4 nights in Mirella’s apartment. Even though we arrived at night everything was handled smoothly at check in with Mirella arranging a taxi to pick us up, and going out of her way to make sure we had a taxi at check out. We found everything we needed close by (coffee, banks, grocery, pharmacy etc) and had numerous options for dining. The apartment is centrally located and after sightseeing it was great to rest in the cozy apartment. It was great to have Mirella nearby in case of any problems, Hope to return and hope to stay at Mirella’s again.
