Rome apartment in Trastevere

Right in the heart of the Trastevere area, the "Vicolo dell'Atleta" is a lovely independent apartment which has just been restructured. Set out on more than one level, this apartment will make your stay a real treat, where you can experience life among the lanes and alleys of real authentic Rome, among the colours, smells and charms of the city of the past in the city's most lively and characteristic area. Just a stone's throw away from all the main tourist attractions of the city, this is a place of real charm and comfort.

The apartment consists of a large sitting room, with a TV, a dining table, a settee, a stereo and a fireplace. The lovely little kitchen is fully-fitted and has been furnished with high-quality materials. One bedroom is set out on two levels and can be used for up to four persons. The other bedroom has a double bed in a loft area. There are then two nice bathrooms, one of which has a washing machine. The other has a shower and hydro-massage unit.

The visual attraction of the clever restructuring of the apartment on more than one level is truly wonderful. The loft areas, the lights built into the floor, the lights which illuminate the various corners in a discrete manner, the internal stairs, the vaulted ceilings, the smart use of wood and the furniture finishes: all of this comes together wonderfully to make the apartment a really charming jewel.

The location itself is just as wonderful: here you are immersed among the sometimes sleepy and sometimes lively lanes and alleys of the Trastevere area, among typical Roman restaurants, craft shops, bars and wine shops. Here you can really experience the true Rome. Just a stone's throw from Santa Maria in Trastevere, the "Tiberine" island on the Tiber, the Janiculum, the archaeological wonder of the Coliseum, the Vatican and the Piazza Navona and Campo de' Fiori area.
