This apartment is set on the top floor of a simple residential building two blocks away from the Trevi Fountain, and is furnished with a mix of contemporary sofas and family antiques. Although you’re in a touristy area, you’ll feel like a local when the crowds have left for the day.
Light pours into the spacious living and dining areas and the bedrooms are quiet as they face towards the back; the small but well-equipped kitchen overlooks a courtyard. Francesca or one of her helpers will greet you but otherwise you have the place to yourself.
Stop in the bar downstairs for a cappuccino before setting off to explore – you can walk to the Spanish Steps, the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona and the Victor Emmanuel II National Monument – take an elevator to the top at sunset for glorious panoramas of the city. Termini main train station is a 10 minute taxi ride or a 25-minute walk, and there are plenty of bus routes nearby.
