We stayed 4 nights in Rome in this very beautiful historic apartment. It is very nicely furnished and very comfortable. There is a little grocery market walking distance from the apartment which was very convenient. This apartment is located in a very quiet section of Rome. A rare find in European apartments is the elevator which made getting our luggage up the stairs a lot easier. Many restaurants and the Vatican are all within a short walk. There is also train and bus station within short walking range.

First visit to Rome and found the apartment on the Internet and booked pretty much based on previous excellent reviews.
Definitely agree with the other reviews. The apartment is clean and well presented. Pretty much has everything you need for a comfortable stay including aircon which was much needed in our case!
Enough space for a family of five using the comfortable sofa bed.
Apartment is well situated for St Peters, about 10 mins or so away. The train station is about 5 mins away which we used a lot. Did not try the bus given warnings we received re pick pockets.
I cannot give Lucia enough praise she is very helpful and friendly. She helped a lot making our trip as easy as possible. Would recommend to family and friends for sure!
Lucia was helpful from the day we first contacted her from Australia via email to the day we left her beautiful apartment in Rome.
The apartment is everything you would expect from an authentic Italian experience – tasteful, sophisticated décor and functional as well. There are even views to St. Peter’s Basilica which are very special.
We stayed as a family of four, with two young children. The bedrooms are large and comfortable, with two bathrooms. The apartment was spotless and inviting, with beautiful bed linen, bathroom supplies and towels galore. Lucia even left provisions in the fridge and a tray of food including coffee, teas, toasts, jams and biscuits.
The apartment has air conditioning in the bedrooms and living areas and the kitchen has a washer and dishwasher. The bus stop for the number 64 (which is the only bus you need), is literally across the road and many areas are easy to walk to. There is a supermarket a few minutes down the road and plenty of restaurants and gelato cafes.
Lucia has a vast collection of tourist information waiting for you in the beautiful living room and she is very helpful with suggestions and assistance. She also arranged our large taxis to and from the airport and it was great to have everything so well organised when travelling with a toddler and a pre-schooler.
We had a fabulous and memorable week in Rome and would not hesitate to recommend Lucia’s apartment. Fabulous.
Lovely apartment close to train station - 1 euro to Rome Station in half an hour. Approx 30 minutes walk to the centre of Rome from apartment, although through a busy traffic and pedestrian tunnel. Nice welcome pack and good information from Lucia. Very handy for the Vatican and reasonable restaurants close by. 2 bathrooms in apartment - and overall decoration excellent. Had issues with the temperature of water in shower - very difficult to adjust and either too hot or cold.
Aircon excellent but had a few issues with electric cutting out, which seems to have been as a result of too many appliances being on at once.
Great lift was useful for access to the 5th floor. Noise from neighbours to quite late on.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the apartment is clean and well appointed. The view of the St. Peter's is breathtaking and the location is a short walking distance to Vatican City and the train station. Lucia has great communication and is welcoming. There are notebooks with travel/tourist information provided on the table in the apartment. I would definitely recommend staying while in Rome.
