As the other reviews suggests - you can only feel lucky when you end up in a place like this. A beautiful 15th century building and great loft with all amenities and views of the church behind. Via del Portico di Ottavia is a very lively street with dozens of restaurants with outdoor serving (several are well known - but we actually preferred Il Portico with excellent genuine food at very reasonable prices) great food shops and ancient ruins at the end of the street. The ghetto is a wonderful oasis in the middle of Rome. You can walk to Navona, Trastevere or Forum in 10-15 minutes. After this trip - cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Rome.
And thanks to Federico for a very friendly reception.More
