The house is perfectly situated for enjoying the unique atmosphere of Rome at its most authentic and picturesque: Campo dei Fiori (just 15 metres away), with its large local market, Piazza Farnese, with the architectural magnificence of the sixteenth-century popes and Piazza Navona, with its thousands of years of history, make this area unique, matched by no other place in the world. In just a few minutes by foot, one arrives at the Tiber River, marked by the lively activity around Trastevere, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, the Vatican and St Peter's Basilica. The Italian-style hospitality and elegance, all of the comforts that make the stay a unique pleasure and the colours and flavours of Rome at its most authentic make this flat the best solution for even the most demanding tourists.
