It couldn't have been more perfect and better located.
A spacious apartment with a glorious private terrace in the heart of Rome.
Rome lovers who return year after year always look for apartments in this prized Campo de' Fiori area where they are transported to an old world city with its winding streets lined with buildings that date from the 1400s - 1800s. The Campo de' Fiori piazza itself hosts the oldest open-air market in Rome where you can shop daily for field-fresh vegetables, fruits and flowers. Piazza Navona, another justly famous Roman gathering place lies a five minute walk beyond Campo de' Fiori. This palazzo borders the area that was once the Jewish ghetto of Rome. The former ghetto remains a lively neighborhood with kosher shops, bakeries, schools and synagogues as well as some wonderful restaurants that feature the signature artichokes Jewish-style together with other delicious Roman specialties. Ancient Roman landmarks surround you, too, with the ruined temples in Largo Argentina, the Theater of Marcellus (with its summer music program), and the Capitoline Hill all within a five minute walk. See our photo tour for pictures and more descriptions of the neighborhood.
Built in the mid-1500s, this noble palace is still home to a family that traces its history through military leadership for the Bourbon kings of Naples and Sicily and whose history is interwoven with Italy's. The Palazzo opens onto a small piazza with the graceful Turtle Fountain. Enter through the massive front door that is staffed with a doorman during business hours into a well-kept courtyard. Look up to see fragments of frescoes from the Renaissance period on the interior walls. The small elevator is fine for getting your luggage up to your apartment, but you may find yourself enjoying trips up and down the formal staircase to soak in the regal feel of the building and maybe get a glimpse into the palatial apartments on the second floor, the "piano nobile." Walk by the apartment on the third floor that was used in the film The Talented Mr. Ripley.
The roomy Landini apartment opens into a large and bright living room that is furnished with seating for all guests. The outer foyer off the landing is not impressive but once inside the apartment it is roomy and comfortable.
The dining room with handsome antique table and chairs seats six and is a separate room from the living room. The kitchen is compact but has adequate counter space that is augmented with a rolling butcher block cart.
Rising from the living room, a circular staircase reaches the expansive rooftop terrace. As large as the entire apartment, 1400 square feet, it offers rooftop views of the Eternal City and enjoyment of the usually mild seasonal temperatures of Rome. The terrace is furnished with an umbrella, iron table and chairs as well as two large upholstered lounges. Vine covered trellises define the space.
The master bedroom with queen sized bed, antique armoire and desk is spacious and receives light from its window on an internal courtyard. The views to the courtyard are not scenic but it does make this room very quiet for sleeping. In the en-suite bath, appreciate the contemporary design of the large ceramic basin on an iron vanity with clever towel bar in front and matching mirror. There is a tub with movable "telephone" style shower head that has a bracket to form a shower head.
The second bedroom has a dual king that can be prepared tougher or as 2 single beds. It overlooks narrow Via del Falegnami that can get some street noise from nighttime revelers. The en-suite bath has a shower with both movable and fixed, rain-style shower heads.
The third bedroom has two single beds, antique armoire and desk and also overlooks Via del Falegnami. These beds cannot be combined.
The full bathroom across the hall from the second and third bedrooms has movable and fixed shower heads.

- Location is absolutely terrific
- The apartment is large and well-laid out
- The terrace is splendid.
- The building is elegant and fascinating, a historical palace.
- The front door of the apartment doesn't live up to the building or the apartment, but it works fine.
- The terrace, piazza, roominess, air conditioning, palazzo, piazza and terrific historic center location more than offset -- for most guests -- the occasional inconveniences such as tripping circuit breakers that necessitate a call to the manager.
Our Guest Reviews
Good Location, Plenty of Space, Loved the Terrace
My family of 5 stayed here. It is a lovely apartment & we would all stay here again. It was great to have our own bedrooms & bathrooms with showers. We all slept well. The water pressure is really bad. If more than 1 shower is going at a time, there will be a trickle of water. Even with 1 shower, it is not very good but at least you can rinse shampoo from your hair. This slowed us down because we needed to shower 1-by-1. Rome is old so this is not completely unexpected.
The kitchen was fine for basic cooking. My mom made breakfast every day – it’s her favorite meal. The USA style drip coffee maker was useless; it took more than 30 minutes to brew half a pot of awful coffee. We just used the Bialetti Moka even though it was time consuming for 5 people. It makes good coffee.
The washer & drier worked well & are in a separate laundry room. Don’t use the drier & dishwasher at the same time; the breaker will trip. This is not unusual in Italy; just adapt. The breaker is convenient & obvious in the kitchen so an easy fix.
The rooms are large (except for the kitchen). We enjoyed all the space & the furniture was comfortable. The terrace was our favorite spot. The weather was wonderful while we were there so we spent everyone afternoon until dinner with a glass of wine up there. The furniture is comfortable & there is an awning to protect from sun or light rain.
The location is wonderful. The building is historic & the neighborhood is convenient for restaurants, sightseeing, shopping, groceries, etc. (Watch the movie “The Talented Mr. Ripley” & you will recognize this building). There are wonderful restaurants in the Jewish Quarter just a few minutes’ walk from the apartment. We ate very well.
There are steps inside the apartment. My 89-year-young mother managed it all fine although she was a little nervous with the narrow spiral staircase to the terrace. There is a small elevator in the building. I loved walking up and down the magnificent staircase.
We were greeted, given a thorough walk-thru and even shown around the neighborhood. That was very kind and appreciated.
[Thank you so much for your review and for enjoying the apartment, its history and the personal welcome. It seems like you might not have seen some of our advance information advising that one shower at a time and one appliance at a time is standard in Italy where the residential electricity allowance is tiny. Water pressure in Rome is a big scandal right now. Of course the core system is ancient and politics may also play a role. The Italy Perfect Team]
What a place!!
My immediate family and I stayed here following my wedding in Puglia. I don’t know if it’s possible to find a better location to stay in Rome for a group of 6. We all fell in love with our Piazza and made this place our home for 7 days. It’s easy to do. The location for me was perfect. Taxis nearby if you can’t make the short walks to all major locations. Wonderful restaurants within seconds from the front door. The owner of the property was more than accommodating as he gave us a tour of nearby need to knows and how to do’s. I could write a novel on how much I loved this place. If you are reading this do not hesitate and remember the terrace truly is a cherry on top. I will be back again and again.
[Thank you Jerry, we are delighted you enjoyed staying at the Landini and look forward to welcoming you again! The Italy Perfect Team]
Comfortable well located apartment
We stayed at Landini Apartment in Rome in August 2018. The apartment was very comfortable and furnished nicely. The bedrooms were fine for a family of 6. 3 bathrooms and a washer and dryer were a great plus. The air conditioning was wonderful as the week we were there temperatures were in the upper 90's and extremely hot. It is located in the Jewish Ghetto and very close to major attractions and many very good restaurants. Coffee shops and bakeries close by. The kitchen is very small and not well equipped. We had to purchase a frying pan. The kitchen sink clogged while we were there and we tried to communicate with the "super/maintenance" person in an office in the lobby area, but he could not understand English. The rooftop terrace is lovely, however, due to the heat we did not use it very much. It is accessed by a small spiral staircase which is not conducive to persons with walking/climbing issues or handicaps. A small elevator was nice to have especially with a lot of luggage. I would definitely consider staying in this apartment again.
[Thank you so much for your review! We are delighted you enjoyed your stay in the apartment and that fascinating part of Rome. We apologize that it wasn’t clear that the manager who met you on arrival would have quickly handled the missing skillet and the sink. The Italy Perfect Team]
Dejlig stor feriebolig, beliggende helt centralt.
Super beliggenhed i forhold til alle de store seværdigheder i Rom. Lejligheden er i god stand, og med en hel fantastisk privat tagterasse, hvor der både er mulighed for skygge og sol. Rigtig god modtagelse af værten med god information - både om lejligheden og den historiske bygning den ligger i. Der var frisk vand og mælk til os i køleskabet samt vin og snack til os.
My family and I spent the first week of March in the Landini apartment in Rome. It was a great experience. The location could not have been better. On a small square with the lovely Renaissance turtle fountain, our building was somewhat secluded and had a feeling of privacy, and yet was only a short walk from the Largo di Torre Argentina, with its bus connections; the Pantheon; the Campo de' Fiori; and the Theater of Marcellus. We walked to Trastevere, the Piazza Navona, the Trevi Fountain, the Capitoline Museum and the Forum. Although we didn't do it because it was raining, we could have walked to the Vatican. It is really a perfect location.
The apartment itself is very spacious, with a large living room and dining room and three good-sized bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have en suite full bathrooms, while there is a third full bathroom across the hallway from the third bedroom. The furnishings are both elegant and comfortable, and the small galley kitchen is well-equipped. A spiral metal staircase in a corner of the living room leads to the roof terrace, which is huge and beautifully furnished. It is a lovely place to have a glass of wine at the end of a day of sightseeing. Near the entrance to the apartment is a large storage room that has a washer and dryer. The apartment is in a magnificent building with a wonderful, imposing staircase. (There is also an elevator). The master bedroom is on the interior courtyard and is therefore very quiet. The other two bedrooms open onto a street and could be a bit noisy if the windows were open.
We were greeted on our arrival by the very gracious owner of the apartment, who not only showed us all of the features of the apartment (such as how to use the washer and the television), but also gave us useful information about where to buy food and bus tickets.
We ate dinner at the apartment on most nights. One great discovery was Antico Forno Roscioli, which was about a five minute walk from our apartment, in the direction of the Camp de' Fiori. Besides having great breads, pizzas and pastries, it has an entire section with prepared foods -- actually, entire prepared meals -- with a different selection each day. The place itself is beautiful and the people are great and very good-natured. Roscioli also has a deli/small restaurant and a coffee bar, both of which we frequented.
In all, we had a very lovely and memorable vacation. This is the second time we have stayed at Italy Perfect apartments -- we spent a week in an apartment in Florence in 2016. Each time, we have been delighted by the location, charm and amenities, as well as by the gracious attention we received both from Pat at Italy Perfect and from the owner of the apartment. I am eager to stay in one of their apartments again.
[Thank you so much Con, we are pleased to hear that you had a great experience! The Italy Perfect Team]
Nice apartment near Ghetto
Spent a week in the Landini apartment on "Turtle Square" between Campo di Fiori and the ghetto---wonderful location for cafes, restaurants, shopping, fresh market, salumeria...you name it. Close to taxi stand at Largo Argentino. Apartment was spacious, fairly quiet for Rome, well furnished, and had a very nice roof deck. Owner did a good job with orientation, pointing out grocery shopping, places to eat, etc. Only drawback was the satellite tv (Sky) could only maintain a signal on one channel---BBC. Internet worked well, though. Can't go wrong with this place, really.
[Thank you so much for your kind review. Please, in the future, if you have such a problem like that with the television, call the greeter to have it fixed. It does normally work well. The Italy Perfect Team]
Perfect stay at Landini apartment
We absolutely loved the old world elegance of the Landini apartment. Large, spacious, and with a lovely rooftop terrace in a very central location. We enjoyed living like locals by grabbing pastries for breakfast from one of the 3 cafes just downstairs on the square and then again lounging around at apertivo hour after the sun went down.
Our two boys each had their own bedroom at the front of the apartment and they did hear quite a bit of street noise, our room at the back was mostly quiet. I can see how this might be a problem during the warmer months (when there are more people out & about) so maybe pack some ear plugs. The 3 bathrooms were good sized (rare in Europe) and we didn't use the kitchen but it was well stocked (other than we couldn't find a wine opener so we bought one and left it). It was also very handy to have a washer & dryer in the apartment and we needed the dryer after getting caught out in the rain.
Our greeter was the epitome of stylish Italian gentleman, he was very charming and understanding after our flight delays had us arriving exhausted and 6 hours later than we had planned. He gave a very thorough tour of the apartment and how everything worked and made sure we were logged in to the wi-fi before he left.
We would highly recommend this apartment and would definitely stay here again. We loved that it was a residential area but still close to all the amazing sights of Rome.
[Thank you so much Laura, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay! The Italy Perfect Team]
Beautiful Apartment with Fantastic Location
Loved the Landini apartment, very clean and a great Location 4 blocks south of Panthenon. Nicely decorated and a large terrace on the roof. You feel like a local. Easy to walk to all sights and great Restarants in the area. Highly recommend.
[Thank you Ladnero! The Italy Perfect Team]
Fabulous time in Roma
What an incredible time we had at the Landini Apartment in Roma!
Upon arrival we were greeted by Pervan who graciously showed us around the beautiful apartment and terrace. The apartment was beautiful and spacious and the history of the building was incredible. Pervan even walked us around the neighborhood showing us the grocery store, coffee shops and restaurants and even recommended an excellent museum nearby that allows you to go down into the ruins of the ancient city of Rome.
We loved having 3 bathrooms for us 4 women and spent a lot of time on the terrace enjoying wine reminiscing about our days in Rome as students many years ago.
The Piazza Mattei was perfect with coffee shops for early morning cappucinos before setting out to explore the city. The location was ideal and we walked to everything ! The proximity to The Campo di Fiori and the Pantheon was exactly what we were looking for. We were so close to all the action but being tucked into Piazza Mattei was a quiet sanctuary from the exciting hustle and bustle that is Rome.
All of us ladies LOVED this apartment and hope to stay there again when we return with our families. We would all recommend this to friends who are looking for a perfect place to stay in Rome.
Thank you to Italy Perfect for recommending this apartment. It is a gem !!
[Thank you Monica, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay as well as the location and look forward to welcoming you again! The Italy Perfect Team]
Our party of 4 adults thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Rome at the Landini. Our husbands especially liked the Turtle Bar next door. It gave them a place to hang out while we were away. The apartment is so centrally located to most of the sites in Rome. The Capitoline Hill is very close and worth the walk up the steps to visit the Church. There are so many restaurants and shopping boutiques within just a few yards. You will find a hair salon right outside the door. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious with plenty of closet storage. We did not use the third small bedroom but it is ideally suited for two independent individuals, either two small children or teenagers. The kitchen, although very small, does a great job of supplying the basics. The main reason we chose the Landini was because of the terrace. Unfortunately, I was disappointed the most in this area. I neglected to consider the use of the spiral staircase in accessing the terrace. To enjoy the terrace the way we wanted involved several trips up and down to carry everything. The cushions and furniture were not as "fresh" as I had expected and the whole area could use a bit of sprucing up to maintain a level of luxury. We were there for 10 nights and only spent 3 or 4 times on the terrace. Although this was our second time to Rome, the information Italy Perfect provided was very helpful. We used their recommendation, Rome Value, for transport to and from the airport, which I do recommend. Booking with Italy Perfect was easy and they gave me options for a mishap in the final payment. I was told I needed to use the same credit card for my final payment as I used for my first payment. I used Bank of America but did not want to use them again. Bank of America charges foreign transaction fees and their conversion rates are not the best. I am happy to say we were able to work things out but it still resulted in my having to pay a little more than my second credit card would have charged. Overall, I would recommend Italy Perfect and Landini.
