In the heart of the picturesque and lively Pigneto, my flat is a bright and cosy place. An easy commute to Rome city centre, the apartment is perfect for a couple or small family who want to experience the charm of a village and the beauties of Rome
My apartment is located at the 4th floor of a yellow house which was built around 1946. The flat has warm, wooden floors and due to its east facing windows, is extremely bright with sunlight. The living area is an open space composed of an entrance way lined with big book shelves, a cosy sitting room with a sofa-bed, a comfy old armchair and a fully equipped kitchen. There is also a colourful bathroom with a shower and all the facilities. The double bedroom is spacious and has a nice wooden Japanese traditional tatami, a large desk, a big wardrobe, a mirror and a chest of drawers. From the bedroom you can access to the beautiful terrace, where you can read a book surrounded by the plants and the sounds of the city, have a lovely meal when the weather is good (in Rome it is sunny the most of the time), or just look at the Roman sunset with its orange light that illuminates a unique view of the city.
The house will be entirely at your disposal.
I'll be available to give you any help and assistance during your stay. If I can't for any reason, someone from Hostmaker will take care of you. We all speak English and we will welcome you providing information about the best places to visit in Rome City Centre as well as the local bars, cafés and shops.
Pigneto is a popular Roman neighbourhood located between Via Prenestina and Via Casilina. It has undergone great changes in the past ten years; once a left, antifascist quarter during the Second World War, then a popular area inhabited by train workers, then the set of Pasolini and Rossellini black and white Neorealist cinema. Today the area is a lively, cultural centre for young people and artists. During the day you can walk through the colourful and leafy streets, tasting the Roman traditional daily life by buying (or just smelling) super fresh fruits and veg at the daily, cheap local market just down the road, or stopping for a cappuccino or a delicious ice-cream in one of the many cafés (I would recommend Yeti Café in Via Perugia 4 and the incredible ice-cream shop in front of it). At night you can have an ‘aperitivo', a glass of wine or cocktail with sharing platters, admiring the amount of people filling the streets and populating the urban environment. In the evenings Pigneto becomes a real meeting place, where you can dance, socialise, or just eat traditional Roman food in both cheap or more sophisticated restaurants. It's the perfect place for unforgettable nights, but it is also well connected to Rome City Centre if you prefer to spend the day or the night there and then come back by tram, bus or taxi.
The apartment can be reached by tram and bus from the airport and Roma Termini. The metro station (Pigneto - Metro C) can be reached in 1 minute walking and a bus stop is just in front of the house.
