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 can be combined to form a dual king.
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
Best location in a comfortable apartment: live in Rome like the locals!
We stayed for 5 days in the Landini apartment with 3 kids (ages 8 to 10) and it felt just like home... except for the amazing scenery over the roofs, the charming Piazza below us with a nice coffee shop right at the corner, plenty of wonderful restaurants and being within walking distance from every one of our destinations was a huge plus. The kids never complained about the walking because we never had to walk too long and in every direction there was something to see or to do. The apartment itself was very clean and comfortable, the kitchen well equipped (plenty of beautiful wine glasses too, good looking dishes and cutlery... which was important since we did eat in on two occasions, taking advantage of the large and stunning rooftop terrace and it was a feast) The beds were perfect for the 5 of us, every bed had nice white linen and fluffy duvet covers. It can get a little noisy from the street but we slept very well nevertheless with the blinds and curtains shut.
Our stay was unforgettable. This was not my first time in Rome and I know my way around fairly well by now so I can say: this apartment has the best location one can imagine and all the comfort we could have wished for. We will be back!

You just can’t have better location than this flat.
What an amazing property! You just can’t have better location than this flat. You can truly walk to most of the historical sites with in 9 to 17 mins. Please is nicely appointed and super clean with an amazing outdoor space. But I was most impressed with the owner! He was very thoughtful and kind throughout our stay. I hope I will be lucky enough to revisit again.
First let me say that the Landini was the Perfect Apartment in the Perfect Location in the Perfect City was 70 year old grandparents, their son and daughter-in-law and six year old twin grandsons. Italy perfect lived up its name.
The apartment was spotless provided lots of room and the host was truly amazing, making sure that all of our needs were taking care of, including making sure that the apartment was ready for our early arrival and late checkout. He also provided an English speaking guided tour of the area around the apartment, pointing out the attractions near by the grocery store.
Piazza Mattei, where the apartment is located, is only a few minute walk to Campo Di Fiore, the Jewish Getto and Piazza Venezia, so that we could walk to all of the major and historic attractions and for the bus which enable us to go to the zoo near Villa di Berghese, which by the way was a great surprise and I highly recommend for everyone, just remember to bring toilet paper.
Even though we did not have an itinerary, which was good because the boys could sleep late, our days included:
The Jewish Getto and Pantheon on day 1, Campo di Fiore and Piazza Navona on day 2 and a pre-arranged tour of the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel, the Vatican on day 3, the zoo and Spanish Steps on day 4, the Colosseum and Forum and dinner with our cousins who live in Rome on day 5 and Campo di Fiore, dinner In the apartment, and Piazza Navona on day 6.
We hope that we will be able to return there next year with one of our other children and their kids.
Our drivers to and from the airport were on time and very accommodating.
Italy Perfect gave us a Perfect vacation.

The apartment was perfectly located to explore the city. It was large enough to spread out and relax. The rooftop terrace was a wonderful bonus. We enjoyed it throughout our stay.
I would highly reccomend this rental and the company, I look forward to a time to return.

Landini was perfecto. Perfan did a wonderful job explaining everything to us. Very comfortable apartment. Three bedrooms, three baths - to of them en suite. Perfan was able to organize additional housekeeping for us which we appreciated for light cleaning up, making beds and helping with laundry. She did a great job and was there when we were not.
We wish the weather was better so we could enjoy the amazing roof terrace.

Great Apartment & Great Location
This is the second time we rented an apartment from Italy Perfect and will definitely do so again. We loved the apartment. It was perfect for our family, with enough space to spread out a little. The terrace is a lovely place to relax and unwind a little away from the bustle below. The location was so convenient for our sightseeing.
Just around the corner from the apartment we found a great new restaurant called Botega Tredici. We had so many good meals in Rome, but this restaurant stood out with the creative, delicious and beautiful dishes they presented. We enjoyed it so much we went back multiple times during our stay.
[Thank you for your repeat business. We are happy to hear that your trip was a great success, and we look forward to welcoming you again. The Italy Perfect Team]
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.
