About the Homestay
The apartment is located on the 6th floor of a building built in the 50s, and there is an elevator for access to the floors of the building.
In the apartment we live: me (Alessandra), my husband Gennaro and our dog named Miss.
There are two bedrooms; one for us and one reserved for guests. There are two bathrooms: one for us and one reserved for guests. There is a living room with tables, chairs and armchairs for conversing. A large kitchen. There is a balcony, with flowers and chairs to cool off and relax in the summer.
In our apartment guests can stay from a minimum of 2 nights up to a maximum of 21 nights. There are no children. It is a non-smoking house, so guests can only smoke outside on the balcony. A dog lives with us: a female named Miss who loves to be pampered and is very quiet.
We will be very happy to welcome you and make you feel at home!

About the Area
The apartment is located in the Trastevere district, right on the border with the Testaccio district and the Monteverde district. It is only 300 meters away from the Roma Trastevere railway station where many trains arrive which leave from Rome Fiumicino-Leonardo da Vinci international airport. You can get from the airport to Trastevere station in 30 minutes and, from the train station, you can reach our apartment in three minutes on foot. From the apartment you can get to the historic center by taking the tram right under the house. You can get to the Vatican by taking the bus or train to the station. In the neighborhood where we live there are many coffee bars, pizzerias, supermarkets but it is also quiet enough to be able to sleep late. Every Sunday morning there is the Porta Portese market: a good opportunity to rummage through the stalls full of cheap things and observe the nice people of Rome.

Alessandra was indeed a great host - got a lot of useful information about how to get around between the tourist spots, recommendations of good restaurant and shopping in Rome, etc.
Es war die schönste Art und Weise, Rom zu erleben! Meine Gastfamilie war unglaublich hilfsbereit, mein Zimmer groß und geräumig, ich war in wenigen Minuten mit der Tram im Zentrum - Station vor der Haustüre. Toll. Wenn ich wieder nach Rom komme dann nur bei Alessandra und Gennaro. Weiters war mir außerdem meine Privatsphäre wichtig, was ich hier einfach hatte, wenn ich es wollte. GRAZIE per questo tempo BELLISSIMO! Tanti saluti da Austria, Elisabeth
