The apartment is located in trastevere near ponte sisto. This quarter is a very popular place with many bars, restaurants and small shops. So in the evening you can choose between many nice places to go. On the other hand this means it is a very noisy place especially on the weekend. So you will have to keep the windows closed at night. The apartment has an air condition, but we didnt use it. Might come handy in the hot summer nights though. We went to all the popular places incl. vatican, colosseum, piazza dispagnia by foot. This means a lot of walking but can be done nontheless. From the airport we took a taxi for a flat fare of 48 euros; took app. 40 mins. If you want you can go by train or bus too. Paolo was there when we arrived and showed us the apartment. As my mother asked for more towels they were brought in minutes.
All in all we had a very pleasant stay there.
