Historic Rome at it`s finest, easy walkability to the sites and a sunny terrace  - the cheerful focal point of the apartment - make this a very inviting vacation apartment.

Location

Just a stone`s throw from majestic Piazza Navona, the Pompeo apartment offers comfort, modern amenities and a notably quiet ambience topped off with a nice terrace. The area was once the location of the Roman Theatre of Pompeo, the very first permanent Roman theatre, commissioned by the Roman General Pompeo in 55 B.C., remnants of which can still be seen today in the colonnade across the piazza.

The apartment is within very easy walking distance to Piazza Navona, the Pantheon and Campo de` Fiori home to Rome`s most famous outdoor fresh produce market. Plentiful restaurants and cafes in the area.

Exterior

The Pompeo apartment is located in a small building the opens onto a piazza with loads of typical Italian character. The unique curve of the buildings that line the piazza follows the architectural lines of the Theatre of Pompeo. The charming buildings now standing date back to Renaissance times.

A very important feature of this apartment is it`s position in the back of the building, away from traffic and pedestrian noise. Rome is a busy bustling city and this area is prime historic center with the sites at your doorstep; quiet apartments with a terrace near Piazza Navona, the Pantheon and Campo de` Fiori are highly prized.

Interior

The Pompeo apartment is built around a sunny, pleasant terrace. The apartment wraps the terrace on three sides. You`ll enjoy the terrace as your outdoor living and dining room during much of the year when temperatures are mild. It has a table, 4 chairs and an electric retractible awning. It is nicely landscaped with a vine-planted trellis and potted plants.

Step through the front door and be greeted by the first set of French doors that open to the terrace. A short hallway perpendicular to the foyer that leads to the living room and kitchen has two more sets of French doors opening to the terrace. Imagine the light and fresh air you`ll enjoy from your own private terrace.

The living room is furnished with an upholstered armchair, flat screen TV which receives local channels, built-in desk and a sofa bed which makes up into two independent twin beds. This style of sofa bed is more comfortable than a folding sofa bed since the mattresses are thicker since they don`t have to fold in the middle. The desk is handy if you are bringing a laptop; the apartment has WiFi throughout. The living room has drapes on the doorway for privacy.

The kitchen can be accessed off the hallway or through the living room. It`s large for Rome and is fully furnished. A table seats four although the terrace, which can easily be accessed from the kitchen, is perfect for meals al fresco which you can prepare from the bevy of wonderful food shops and array of fresh produce in this neighborhood.

A full bathroom just beyond the kitchen has sink, fully enclosed shower, toilet and bidet.

The bedroom also opens out onto the terrace. It has a queen size bed and an adjoining full bathroom, also with sink, fully enclosed shower, toilet and bidet.

Location couldn't have been better Oct 2013

We just got back from our time at the Pompeo apartment and  just wanted to write to say the apartment was great for us and just as you described.  Location couldn’t have been better, apartment itself particularly kitchen and bathrooms and master bedroom were well renovated, clean, and well stocked with all necessities.  Thanks and we will be back in touch next time we travel.

Pompeo Oct 2013

This is the fifth time we have rented an apartment in Rome. Overall we found the accommodation more than adequate. The location and the surrounding area was great and what we had expected. I take it the area was what we were paying for. The greeter was wonderful, the best we have experienced by far! The terrace would be great if the weather were good but, during 9 days we could never really use it to socialize or dine. As it is the major light source it is important. I would recommend Italy Perfect as they are diligent and detail oriented. I think they should change their name - the word PERFECT is hard to live up to. They need to simplify things. The upstairs apartment is noisy and during the first weekend the partying went on and on and we could hear all conversations. When we arrived the garbage in the front hall was appalling. By Monday someone had cleaned it up. There were lots of little things that needed attending to, some of which my husband tried a hand at fixing. 

Thank you for your feedback.  You're right, the apartment's location and the greeter are great. What a shame that the October weather was unusually wet and cool, so you didn't get the full benefit of the nice terrace. As we caution in 'Our Review' on the website, you did experience some noise from a neighboring apartment, thankfully for only 2 out of your 9 nights which is normal on the weekend in any apartment building. We also caution guests in Our Review that the downstairs front hall is unimpressive, since that is where the building trash cans are located. You indicated it was cleaned up a few days later; that is useful information for other guests to know what to expect. The greeter said you didn't mention anything to her about the noise or anything that needed fixing or she would have attented to this right away. Thank you from the Italy Perfect Team.

Charming courtyard flat by Campo de Fiori Sep 2013

A charming little apartment, perfect for 2 for any length of stay, but also OK for 4 for a briefer stay with two well appointed baths and a fine little kitchen. Its key feature is a central courtyard where at least in summer you take all your meals in its balmy shade. We ate indoors three time over 28 days! Air conditioning and a clothes washer and dish washer provide additional comforts. We stayed a month and loved our little "home in Rome", which is ideally located literally just around the corner from the Campo de Fiori and in the middle of all of Rome's baroque and antique beauty. An elevator is under construction which might make access easier. The flat is on the second floor (third us). Do not be put off by the scrappy front door or the staircase, Romans do not care about that, the apartment is what counts and it is lovely.

Friedrich, Chicago

Loved Pompeo! Jul 2013

The apartment was well-lit, clean, comfortable and beautifully laid out for our family of four. Our favorite feature was the courtyard. Daniella, our greeter, was kind and helpful.

Great location too - with Campo Fieri and Piazza Navona within minutes, restaurants, grocery stores, bakery Forno), banks, espresso and everything you could possibly need....

Don't miss the deli meats and cheese shop at Campo Fieri.

Overall, centrally located and bus transportation is easy to figure out. The 116 starts at Campo Fieri. Other buses stop about a 5 minute walk away.

We strongly recommend this apartment and would like to come back here on a future visit to Rome. Thank you for making out stay so memorable!!

Rabi and Mita, Seattle

The apartment was spacious and suited us very well. Jul 2013

The apartment was spacious and suited us very well. The location was great and in a pivotal point for all the palaces that we wanted to visit. The stairs were not a problem, however a lift is in the process of being installed. The water pressure for the plumbing was low but I guess that is an issue for the whole of Rome. There are many restaurants in the vicinity and an interesting market with lots of activity. We have already recommended the apartment to friends.

One thing that I forgot to mention was the benefit of having Daniela meet us at the apartment. In addition to updating us about the apartment she gave us a good overview of the surrounding area. Recommendations for restaurants, shops and places of interest were great. She even gave us a guided tour of the nearby environment. Please pass on our thanks to Daniela.

Pompeo is charming Apr 2013

Stayed in Pompeo through Italy Perfect. Everything good from making the reservation to checking out. Daniela their greeter is extremely helpful and showed us all the features of the apartment and surrounding area. She went above and beyond for us when we had a completely unexpected health emergency. For us, this apartment in the heart of Rome made our trip even more special. You truly feel as if you are a part of things. The apartment is ideal for two people and it's nice having two bathrooms. The small patio is very charming and kitchen is more than adequate. One thing that struck me was that the apartment was immaculate. Linens on bed were crisp and clean and the bathrooms were spotless. Actually, there was not a speck of dirt anywhere. Be aware the hot water tank is small so you cannot take super long showers if you want hot water. While you do go upstairs to get to this apartment, you are not on the top floor. Depending upon who is above you, this can be an issue if you are a light sleeper. We had a family with some rowdy kids for the first part of the week but they all went to bed at a reasonable time so that was not an issue. The latter part of the week however the apartment above us was occupied by people who liked to stay up all night and it was very difficult to sleep. If you are not a light sleeper, this would probably not bother you. The location of this apartment is excellent. There is a family restaurant steps away that we decided was our best meal in Rome. They do not speak english and whatever they are serving that night is what you get which was actually fun. Very nice good and atmosphere. We walked everywhere. No issues with safety or anything else. I would definitely use this rental service again as I feel they are very professional. Everything was as it was presented on the website and we were very pleased with this apartment and of course, Italy was just divine.

Excellent on all counts! Apr 2013

We loved the apartment! Everything about it. I had talked to Pat orginally stating what our needs were and she made suggestions to chose from. Pompeo is perfectly situated for the intense walking/sightseeing we did. It's very quiet inside the building even though you are steps from Campo de Fiori.

The apartment is modern in an Ikea sort of way with updated windows,appliances,bathrooms and heating system. It was rainy alot while we were there but the apt. was always cosy. The layout worked for 2 adults needing abit of their own space.

Pat was very helpful in procuring ride to/from airport and tickets to a gallery in Rome.

i will use Italy Perfect another time!

Don't judge a book by its cover Oct 2012

Entering the front door from the street for the first time, I was really put off by the prospect of carrying my luggage the 40 steps to the apartment. Also, although the common hallway/stairwell is clean and well lit; it is VERY, VERY dingy. I dreaded entering the apartment.

HOWEVER: the apartment itself more than makes up for this handicap in the way it has been refurbished Modern and in its L-shaped layout. The master bedroom and private bathroom are in the short part of the 'L' with a windowed door looking out to the private enclosed terrace. The second (large)bathroom is at the juncture of the 'L' and the large kitchen and adequate den (with pullout) are in the long part of the 'L' which also look out to the terrace, so it is. The large windows provide illumination. There is a handy entranceway where you can hang your coat, umbrella etc before entering the unit.

The place is spotless and there is not one utility or utensil that is missing. (A grocery store is 5 minutes away.) WiFi is fast and stable and you hear NO street noise. The location is EXCELLENT: a VERY short walk (2 minutes) to the Campo di Fiori, which seems to have become a popular rival to the Piazza Navona (also a short walk of 7-10 minutes)for evening dining and people-watching.

We are no strangers to Rome and walk everywhere: (I am 68 and my wife is 62) e.g. The Roman Forum/Trajan's column area is a 17 minute walk. Trevi fountain or Trastevere-are 12-15 minutes (different directions). The Vatican is a 20-25 minute walk. The wonderful thing about your way to anywhere is how engaged you become looking at sites along the way. You don't feel it is a chore to walk anywhere.

I would have no qualms recommending Italy Perfect to anyone. They were professional and prompt in their replies.

Steve 'n Cat, Montreal

A Great Place to Stay! Oct 2012

This very clean, cute apartment is in a perfect location in Rome, close to a lot of interesting, lively sites and activities. Markets, restaurants, ancient ruins, tourist attractions, shopping-all within walking distance from the front door.

The bed was quite comfortable and a real queen size, not a double. The 2 bathrooms were spacious. All the appliances worked well and seemed to be new. The little patio was a nice place to relax. It was a very quite location, no street noise. Neighbours were also quiet.

Italy Perfect is a welcoming, professional company with which to work!

Cynthia, Lakewood, Ohio

Small but delightful Oct 2012

We stayed at Pompeo with our two boys in August 2012. The greeter was polite, friendly and helpful and was not bothered by us getting lost on the way, as the taxi driver unhelpfully dropped us nearby and pointed to the general direction of the address. The apartment was spotless and well-equipped although there was no cheese grater that we could find. The water pressure in the shower was annoying as pointed out by other reviews, but certainly only a minor issue. We found the apartment quite small for our two boys aged 4 and 6 but we hardly spent time there as the nearby Campo was always abuzz. Unlike other reviews noise was not an issue but a light which was always switched on, on a terrace outside the master bedroom window made it difficult to get to sleep. Overall, I would thoroughly recommend this apartment.

Rina, Australia

Our stay in Rome was wonderful Sep 2012

I just want to inform you that our stay in Rome was wonderful.  One of the best part, was the location of the apartment and that we were able to sleep every nights, no car noise. Daniela, the greeter, was a charming lady and the tour around the apartment upon our arrival was much appreciated. The apartment was cleaned and nice with all the windows/doors. I will certainly come back and recommend this apartment.

Julie, Canada

Pompeo a Great Place Aug 2012

We were very pleased with the accomodations at Pompeo in Rome. It was just perfect for 4 people. The location was superb, right next to the Campo di Fiori and just a few blocks from Piazza Navona. Everything was within walking distance. Daniela who welcomed us at arrival was very thoughtful and extremely helpful in providing us information on the local market, restaurants, shops and the general lay of the land around the apartment. She even showed us a "secret passage" to Campo di Fiori, which turned out to be a great shortcut during the day. As it was very hot when we visited (July), it was wonderful to have airconditioning to cool us off at the end of each day. In addition, the open air porch was really nice at night to take a final sip of red wine before going to bed. We would definitely consider using this apartment again in the future. The car service from the airport was also very convenient and Stefano, our driver was right on time to pick us up and drop us back off at the airport. We would definitely recommend this place to our friends.

Thorsrud Family, Kalamazoo, Michigan

I will recommend this to anyone I know travelling to rome. Aug 2012
  1. Stefano was great. Our ship came in late but he was right there for us. He’s definitely an interesting character. He called daniella ahead for us and she was here within a minute of our arrival at pompeo.
  2. The apartment is just what we needed here. We are in the center of everything and we can get an idea of what it must be like to live in rome.
  3. Daniella is a great and kind host. We haven’t needed to talk to her since we arrived…but please tell her thank you for everything.
  4. I will recommend this to anyone I know travelling to rome.

Charming Flat Jul 2012

My 14 year old son and I stayed at the Pompeo for 5 nights in mid-July and loved it. The location was absolutely perfect -- a stone's throw from Campo Dei Fiori but in a very private square. Pantheon and Piazza Navona only minutes away. All rooms faced a lovely terrace that was courtyard facing so the flat was incredibly quiet, which is a precious commodity in noisy Rome. The flat was small but perfect for our needs. The full-sized kitchen was a welcome feature -- we had breakfast in each day and could sit at the table and plan our itinerary. I would definitely stay in the Pompeo again.

Nancy, New York, USA

A great and delightful stay at Pompeo Jul 2012

We truly enjoyed our stay at Pompeo.

We were greeted by the hostess upon arrival and she showed us the apt and also walked the neighborhood with us, pointed out nearby grocery store, bakery, bus stop,...etc.

The apartment was clean, spotless, very secure and safe.

We explored the neighborhood right away, the short cut to Campo de' Fiori was only about 5 minutes, full of restaurants and have farmer's market from morning till early afternoon. Piazza Navaona was about 12 minutes walk, full of artist type of vendors selling their art drawings, full of restaurants, street performers, a delightful place.

Pompeo was very centrally located, we walked to Patheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, and Colosseum. Due to time restraint, we took taxi to Villa Borghese and Vatican City. There was a Taxi stop right in front of Piazza Navaona entrance, very convenient.

My son's girlfriend is a vegan/gluten free, We were able to shop daily for fresh vegetables, fruit at Campo de' Fiori and the nearby supermarket, used the kitchen to cook lovely simple meals for quick breakfast and a few dinners.

The aC worked beautifully. The bedroom was very comfortable with a queen size bed. My son and his girlfriend had the foldout bed/living room. There was a curtain for them to pull around for privacy. We were able to found extra down comforters to add extra padding for the "fold out" mattress.

We would rent from Italy Perfect again on our future trip.

They are professional, honest, and extremely helpful. We used a transportation service they recommended from the airport to the apt, the driver was there on time, waiting for us and called ahead to the hostess of our arrival time. The hostess also emailed us, introduced herself and coordinated with us about our stay.

JB, California

great location Jul 2012

Pros: Like others have said, this apartment is in an excellent location, and we walked everywhere (Trastevere, Vatican, Colosseum, Spanish Steps, Borghese Gardens). Our greeter took us on a mini tour of the area and went out of her way to make reservations for us at a restaurant we had asked about. The terrace is nice, and we heard live jazz music several of the evenings before going to dinner. The apartment is off a side street so there is virtually no traffic/pedestrian noise. The rental process was easy and straightforward.

Cons: Noise from within the building. Although the apartment is fairly well shielded from outside noise, we heard a lot of noise from the apartment above. The family above us were also renters on vacation, and we were woken up in the mornings by their heavy walking and the children running back and forth. We also heard some faint music in the bedroom late into the night (until 2am), not sure where it came from but maybe the adjacent building. As for the living room area, while it was nice to have a separate area from the bedroom, we found the sofa to be fairly uncomfortable for two people so if we wanted to read we did so in bed.

A Roman Delight Jun 2012

Everything about Pompeo was perfect. We loved living in an old building that was convenient to almost everything we did during our two-week stay. The apartment itself was more than ample for two people, and we especially appreciated the smart contemporary design of the kitchen and two bathrooms. Because there were four glass doors opening onto the terrace - with its jasmine-covered trellis - the apartment was always light and pleasant. Our greeter was very welcoming and not only left us wine, juice and chocolate for our first day but also gave us plenty of useful information, including a shortcut to the Campo de Fiori, which was not very faraway to begin with. In addition to the extensive list of excellent restaurants provided by Italy Perfect we also enjoyed the Grilled Fish restaurant only a few steps away from the apartment. We particularly liked the nearby leather shop Ibiz, where we purchased several gifts. We would definitely recommend Italy Perfect to any friends considering a trip to Italy.

Pompeo's location is perfect. Jun 2012

In April, 2012, we began our month-long trip in Italy with a 10 day stay in Rome. We rented the Pompeo apartment through Italy Perfect. There was 3 of us, me, my wife and our 30 year old son. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in Pompeo.

The logistics of renting, getting into and leaving the apartment were excellent. The rental was handled through e-mail - Lisa was super responsive. We weren't supposed to get into the apartment until 4:00 but it wasn't rented the day before we arrived so the greeter arranged to let us in as soon as we arrived in Rome - around 11:00am. Italy Perfect recommended a driver, Stefano, and he was super. He was waiting for us with a sign when we arrived and called the greeter to say we were on the way. He also picked us up at the apartment on the day we checked out and dropped us off at the train station before taking our son to FCO to fly home. When we returned to Rome, he took us from our hotel to FCO. Very professional.

Pompeo's location is perfect. It is located on a small square near the Campo de Fiori. We walked to the Pantheon and Piazza Navona almost everyday or evening - they were about 5 minutes away. The greeter told us where the nearest market was and there was an Internet site just around the corner. The apartment has great wifi but we used the internet site once to print documents. We walked everywhere - the Vatican, the Colosseum and even the Borghese Gardens. If you like to walk, you'll never need a cab or subway - we didn't. Our son is a runner and ran the Circus Maximus and around the Colosseum most mornings. We never felt unsafe.

The apartment itself was great. It is on an upper floor and it takes a little effort to climb them. Our greeter arranged to have our luggage taken to the apartment but I carried it down when we left. I suppose the driver would do it if asked. The kitchen is very clean and fully equipped. The bathrooms are also very clean, modern and large for Italy. The living room which serves as the 2nd bedroom is small. I'm glad our son was sleeping there - the sofa/bed didn't look too comfortable. Our son was never able to find an english speaking channel, usually BBC in Italy. The courtyard feels very closed in, almost like an alley. But, it was great for drying clothes and without it the apartment would be dark. It is in Italy so you can expect to hear the people above the apartment and people in the courtyard of an adjacent hotel at times. Heat worked well when we used it.

We had an apartment in Florence for 2 weeks which was much less expensive. It had a much better terrace overlooking the city but it wasn't nearly as clean or modern. We also had to deal the owner and we were never quite sure what would happen if we arrived and they claimed we didn't have the apartment. That didn't happen and everything was fine. With Italy Perfect, I don't think you have that concern.

We had a great stay and Pompeo worked out well. If you visit Italy, consider visiting the Cinque Terre. We spent 4 days there and they were a great break from museums and ruins.

pompeo May 2012

we found the apartment just as it was described. The only thing that we needed was a second good reading lamp as both of us like to rrad and were not able to do so comfortably. We walked every where and ate locally. We did't even use public transportation because of it's central location. We loved everything about our vacation and recommend that everybody go to Rome. We are sure to be back!

The web site provided us with links that helped us plan the rest of our trip when we travelled outside of the city. Thank you for everything. We had a flawless trip.

Everything and more Mar 2012

My husband and I were warmly greeted by Danielle, a lovely lady. She went out of her way to accommodate us on our early arrival. Danielle also took us on a mini tour of the area to show us how to get to the grocery store and market. The location was wonderful, we were within walking distance of everything. The apartment was exactly as described, the terrace was a lovely way to start our day as well as a nice glass of wine at the end of the day. Our daugther lives in Trastevere, which was just a tram ride away. The tram was two blocks from the apartment. We did not have any difficulties with the hot water nor the heat/ac. Danielle phoned mid-week to make sure everything was to our liking or if we needed assistance. Everything that we needed or wanted was truly, just around the corner. My husband and I would definately stay in this apartment again and have already recommended it to other parents visiting their children while studying abroad. Also, Lisa and Pam were very helpful with tour information as well as transportation to the apartment. We used Stefan who was there waiting for us and early to pick us up to take us back to the apartment. Anytime I had a question, I emailed them and they responded within hours. Thank you for helping to make our first visit to Europe everything we wanted and more.

Great place to stay in Rome Mar 2012

The Pompeo apartment was in a great location very close to Piazza Navona. There was a bakery and grocery near too. Our greeter Daniela was terrific and explained everything very well. We had a minor issue with the hot water and she came right away and fixed it for us. The apartment was very clean and we liked having two bathrooms (great with kids). The neighborhood felt very safe and we would highly recommend this wonderful apartment. Ciao!

The Pompeo apartment was clean and in perfect condition upon our arrival. Nov 2011

From the first phone call with Lisa all went smooth and with great success. We in fact also rented from Italy Perfect an apartment in Venice. The Pompeo apartment was clean and in perfect condition upon our arrival. The fact that two bottles of wine were waiting for us did not hurt our first impression. Location is the best.

I unhesitatingly recommend Italy Perfect. Oct 2011

Overall the accomodations were much better than expected. Daniella was very helpful, knowledgeable and professional.

The location and surrounding area was surprisingly quiet for Rome. Because of it's relatively central location, Pomoeo was well located for all our sight-seeing.

Just enjoy yourself as we did and remember you're in Italy so relax and go with it.

I unhesitatingly recommend Italy Perfect.

Perfect Jun 2011

This apartment was perfect for our family of 4. The second bathroom came in handy when we were trying to get out the door quickly in the morning. It is located in a lovely neighborhood: restaurants, market, shops, cafes and sites all within easy walking distance. We did not need to get in a cab once! I especially enjoyed feeling like a local and being able to see family life in Rome. I miss the friendly baristas and shopkeepers.

Pompeo offers it all! Jun 2011

Our family of 4 found the accommodations adequate - it's a small apartment (and a bit noisy) but because the location was so ideal, we didn't spend alot of time in the apartment. Great access to buses, taxis, shopping, and restaurants. Be sure to check out the daily market at Campo di Fiori and make the walk across the Tiber to the charming Trastevere area where there are tons of restaurants. When we return to Italy, we will book with Italy Perfect again.

Location with a Terrace! May 2011

We spent the first part of an anniversary trip at the Pompeo and were very impressed with how clean, new and bright it was. The layout is quite thoughtful and would work well for a family or even 2 couples as the living room has a sofa bed and can be closed off with doors to the kitchen and a curtain to the hallway. The multiple seating areas in the kitchen and on the terrace along with the 2 bathrooms would save it from feeling small with 4 people. However, for 2 people all that space and 2 bathrooms with a terrace was total luxury! We thoroughly enjoyed breakfast each morning on the terrace, which is interior to the building. It has no views but it brings in sunlight and can be made more private by extending an electronic awning so that neighbors above don't look down on you directly. It was also very quiet - we heard only the birds and the church bells. The kitchen was excellently equipped - though you'll want to bring/buy a sharp knife if you plan to cook much or just ask Daniella (greeter) who may be able to provide one (we never asked since it wasn't an issue until much later in our stay). Daniella was a great resource - she greeted us with wine and Cantucci, gave us a walking tour of the neighborhood, recommended wonderful restaurants (be sure to try Antico Forno Roscioli for amazing baked goods and The Moderne for a nice night out) and was so helpful answering all our questions. The wi-fi worked wonderfully and the location near Campo di Fiore for the daily food market is great for preparing meals and seeing a different slice of Rome. The location is also perfectly central. We would recommend this apartment to anyone except folks with mobility issues since there is no elevator.

The apartment was perfect to come home to each day, bright and wonderfully quiet. May 2011

We were so happy at the Pompeo apartment. Incredible location, very interesting and so nice to be right in the center of things. The apartment was perfect to come home to each day, bright and wonderfully quiet. We spent each evening out on the terrace enjoying a glass of wine before going to dinner at one of the many good restaurants in the area. Apartment was comfortable, clean and very well maintained. You won't be disappointed. Service from Italy Perfect and the greeter was impeccable. Grazie!

Bravo Italy Perfect Apr 2011

We stayed at a different apartment (Trestevere) before we stayed at Pompeo. We hadn’t taken ItalyPerfect’s warnings about noisiness in Trestevere seriously and unfortunately we found that the space is over a bar and the live music, when they have it, was too much for us to be able to sleep. I got in touch with ItalyPerfect and they graciously and quickly switched us to the Pompeo location. The Trestevere apartment was very nice – all it was advertized to be. The Pompeo space and location are even nicer; comfy, clean, brand new renovation, great location, great wireless access. The building is built on the site of the Theater of Pompey, which has a rich and storied history. I would have to spend a LOT more money to get a place I would prefer over this one in Rome.
