Bright and comfortable living room with queen size sofa bed, large window for plenty of light.
Practical furnishings, sofa bed, good layout and a very convenient location will please value-seekers.
To the left of the living room and both bedroom windows is the historic "Porta del Popolo" entrance to Piazza del Popolo, "The People's Square". The trolley car runs below along Via Flaminia. Via Flaminia dates back to 220 BC when it was one of the most important roads leading into Rome.
The apartment is tidy and well organized with the vacation traveler in mind. The front door, seen in the background, opens in the the living room. Bookshelves hold travel guides, information.
View looking straight out the living room window.
Kitchen is at the back of the apartment, it is well-equipped with pots, pans, dishes.
Kitchen has a gas stove and microwave but no oven. With all the wonderful restaurants in the area and the high quality prepared foods for takeaway at nearby Castroni's deli, chances are you won't be doing any baking.
Master bedroom has a good quality queen size bed. Double-glazed windows too.
Mirrored armoire for your clothes.
The second bedroom has two single beds. The two beds can't be joined as they are slightly different heights. Double glazed windows. Because the trolley line is outside there is some noise, it only bothered us first thing in the morning when the first trolley passed by. It does not run throughout the night.
The second bedroom is quite spacious. It also has a mirrored armoire. The two bathrooms and kitchen are just beyond this bedroom, towards the back of the apartment.
Each bathroom has a toilet, shower and sink.
Curtain shower enclosure in the smaller bathroom.
This bathroom has a shower with door. Although this bathroom is long and narrow it is very functional.
The combination washer/dryer is located in the larger bathroom. The dryer feature on the washer is a nice aspect of this apartment! Few Italian vacation apartments have a dryer.
Just a 3-minute walk from the apartment across beautiful Piazza del Popolo is famous Bar Canova where you can enjoy cappuccino and prime seating for 'seeing and being seen'. Also ideal for a light midday meal or evening cocktail. This has been a famous spot for people-watching since the 1920's and is where Federico Fellini used to enjoy his daily espresso.
Just a block away up the street is the Dean and Deluca of Rome, Castronis. For fine ingredients for your Roman meals or to just browse the offerings that include pasta, ingredients, sweets, and beverages of the highest quality, be sure to stop in.
It's a 10 minute walk to the Spanish Steps. View from the top of the Spanish Steps down to the fountain at the base, called La Barcaccia.
Who needs to cook when you have such a great selection of high quality Roman take away at nearby Castroni's food emporium.
