Everything is perfect or better
Convenient to Piazza del Popolo, minutes from the Spanish Steps, you will find every amenity in this spacious apartment. Modern conveniences include air conditioning, Satellite TV, wireless internet access, stereo and microwave. This large apartment features the combination of comfort and location. All your needs have been considered in the amenities offered.
The location is in central Rome, two minutes from Piazza del Popolo, one block from the Tiber River, four minutes from the Borghese gardens. Nearby Piazzale Flaminio is a transportation hub with Metro station, busses and the Hop-and-Stop double decker sightseeing bus. If you wish to stroll, you will be in Piazza del Popolo in minutes, ten minutes puts you in Piazza di Spagna, where you will find the Spanish Steps and the designer shopping mecca of Rome. The Pantheon is about a fifteen minute walk and Piazza Navona about five minutes further. Villa Borghese is very close, great for exercise, strolling and play. Rent a pedal car or bike.
You are right near the spectacular and bustling Piazza Del Popolo, with its fountains, churches, a great Caravaggio painting and cushy cafes yet just outside the piazza in a peaceful, prosperous neighborhood served by tram and Metro lines. Its a 15-20 minute walk to the Pantheon - although you'll want to take two hours stopping, looking and eating - and a metro stop or two from the Vatican.
The building interior is handsome with a spacious lobby. There are three steps in the lobby and one 20 cm high step inside the apartment to access the master bedroom, so this isn`t perfect for a wheelchair traveler, but if navigating those steps is not a problem, then there are no additional barriers to access or moving about the apartment.
For larger families or groups, we suggest the Flaminio apartment rented in conjunction with the Orlando apartment which is a one-minute walk from this apartment.
For comfort and convenience, the living/dining room offers two sofas and an easy chair. One sofa converts a queen sized bed. The entertainment center has satellite TV so you can pick up English language news stations. A variety of books and guides are here for your use.
A narrow terrace wraps around the living and dining rooms, so two sets of French doors admit plenty of light. Trellises with vines and pots of plants welcome you to enjoy your rooftop location. On the hottest days you can close up and turn on the air conditioning, but on many temperate days, even warm ones, you can open up and let the breezes blow through.
This apartment was the right size for our family which includes three teenagers. The beds are comfortable and everything is updated and very clean. The bonus was the wonderful terrece that we enjoyed both morning and evening.
The dining table seats six. Its glass inset allows the light to flow through.
The eat-in kitchen has a large refrigerator with a freezer compartment, gas four-burner stove top and oven, microwave, Italian and drip coffee makers, and a dishwasher. The kitchen table seats two.
A locked room, accessed from the terrace, has a washer and dryer as well as a hotel-style safe.
The apartment is well appointed with everything we could hope for in terms of our needs - fully equipped kitchen, adapters and multi tap plugs for all of our chargers, thick and absorbent towels and handy maps and guidebooks..
Buildings in Italy, by law, turn on the heat only after the first of November and turn it off at the end of March and it takes a special official declaration to override the law. This apartment has, however, two backup systems for heat that can increase your comfort and also allow you to be warm in the case of a cold snap, even when the building heat is not on. One is a special zone for the bathrooms which heats them up independently for a warm morning shower. And, separately, the air conditioners are heat pumps that can be invoked to quickly warm up a room. Utility usage, up to an average of 15kwh/day, is included in your rent. Excessive use of the heat pump option could put you above that, although it might be worth it!
The master bedroom is adequately sized with a Italian king/queen sized bed (3" wider than a North American queen) and two built-in closets. It has its own balcony and neighborhood view. The second bedroom features two twin beds, a night stand and an armoire.
The master bathroom en-suite bathroom has a large shower, sink, toilet and bidet. The second bathroom is small, it is off the living room and has shower, sink and toilet.
We just want to thank you for making our stay in Rome so wonderful. The apartment was great, roomy, clean and perfect for our family.

Our Guest Reviews
A Wonderful Escape in Rome
My husband and I spent 10 days in July in the lovely Flaminio apartment in Rome. This was a mixture of holiday and work and this beautiful apartment was a perfect escape at the end of each busy day. Its location being so close to Piazza Popolo and the Flaminio Metro & bus stop and the Borghese was really wonderful Once you stepped inside it was so quiet and peaceful with the outdoor space perfect for the warm summer evenings. The apartment is beautifully fitted out and for the evenings you feel like eating in, everything you wanted was there.
We really appreciated the assistance Italy Perfect gave me in booking the apartment and the follow through emails, including organizing a car to get us to the airport on our departure.
Everything was made so easy.
We really appreciated our greeter, Francesca, who was so helpful, going out of her way to ensure we knew which local bus would take us to the Conference and advice on shops etc.
This was a lovely apartment in a convenient part of the city. We will certainly recommend it to friends.
Thank you everyone at Italy Perfect

Perfect Rome apartment
The location is great, close to Metro, bus, and shopping. Apartment was perfect for 4.
Location great for us - but did involve some walking. 30 min walk to Vatican, 20 min to Trevi Fountain. Train station close by. Apartment was clean and had everything we needed. Balcony was lovely. Appreciated laundry facilities. AC worked and beds were comfortable. Definitely recommend Italy perfect! Very accomodating.

Spacious apartment on the fifth floor with a patio with table and chairs to have breakfast or happy hour food and drinks.
Great location, we walked to most historic sites. Subway was five short blocks. Very happy and recommend staying with 4 people.

Italy Perfect and the Flaminio Apartment are Perfect!
If you want to have a fabulous trip to Rome, work with Italy Perfect and stay at the Flaminio apartment! It was everything they promised and more - spacious, clean, comfortable, fabulous patio, sunny, and walking distance to just about everything!
Lisa and her team made traveling in another country easy! Connecting us with Mia Limo before our arrival so our driver was waiting for us, he then coordinated with our greeter, Gianluca to meet at the apartment. Gianluca spoke fluent English and made sure we felt comfortable about the apartment along with directions/map for grocery stores/atms/transportation in the area. This was our last stop on a 3 country tour and was the best because of Italy Perfect!

A friend and I rented the beautiful apartment in the Flaminio for one week, and it was perfect for us. Large, with the two bedrooms on opposite ends of the apartment, the place gave us plenty of room to spread out, and after hours of wandering in the city, space to be together and space to be by ourselves. The terrace was our favorite place to get together for long morning coffees: big, sunny, with plants, even a bougainvillea just flowering. And the Flaminio is a wonderful neighborhood to explore. Just outside of the busy touristed Piazza del Popolo, it is its own quieter world. But, with plenty of treasures, like the Maxxi museum of 21st century art, which we walked to along the Lungotevere. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect place! Just outside of the hustle and bustle of Rome, yet close enough to be there in a heartbeat! We loved having tea in the morning and wine in the afternoon on the patio before hitting the tourist attractions. The apartment is so well appointed, and the special touches like the welcome basket full of pasta, coffee, and a bottle of wine was a lovely treat! Thank you!!
Lovely apartment in a great location.
Another GREAT STAY with Italy Perfect
Just returned home from a beautiful week stay in Rome at the Flaminio Apartment. This was our second Italy Perfect rental.
The Flaminio is in a great location just above the Piazza del Popolo. Nice, safe neighborhood and the apartment is on the top floor of a lovely building. All types of public transportation are available at the Piazza del Popolo (taxi stand, buses, subway & trams are all there).
The apartment itself was full of natural light and spotlessly clean. It had a well equipped kitchen and very comfortable bed.
Highly recommended. Enjoy!

Apartment was comfortable and welcoming.
We loved our rental! A perfect 10!
Location was central to all sights and very close to a supermarket, ATM, and a few restaurants.
Building was safe and well maintained. Apartment was comfortable and welcoming. Furnished nicely and neutral. Laundry in unit was a huge plus. Owner was very easy to deal with and helpful.
Italy Perfect was great and we will certainly recommend you to others!
[Thank you Meg, we are happy you enjoyed staying at the Flaminio! The Italy Perfect Team]
