This turn-of-the-century palazzo is set on a quiet residential street but is very central – Termini train station is an eight-minute walk and the main bus lines travel on Via Nazionale, two blocks away.
Two spacious apartments have been updated by a well-known Roman architect – rent both if you’re a group of friends or family. Henrietta and Carlo leave you Prosecco or red wine as a welcome, and can arrange cooking lessons, guided Vespa or vintage Fiat 500 tours, e-biking down the ancient Appia Antica or day trips into the countryside.
There’s plenty of space for lounging in between activities, or perhaps entertaining with your own private chef. There are small food markets nearby, or head a few blocks over to the vibrant Monti neighbourhood and eat out – Trattoria Valentina, small, simple and very authentic; Le Barrique for an impressive wine list and Roman menu; Urbana 47 for organic, local fare; Fatamorgana for inventive and artisanal gelato.
