Rossanna and her husband kindly met us at the apartment and shared a lot of information about the local area and the sights of Rome. Although the apartment was outside of the central 'tourist area,' it was only a 5-10 minute subway ride away from the main sights. The area certainly gave a sense of the daily lives of people who live in Rome, and it was a comfortable place for 2 people to stay.

I have been at domusilaria three nights with my son (8yrs) and all worked out fine. The place is small, yes, but propely thought: there is a walk-in wardrobe, which means your stuff gets out of your sight and is properly stored, a fully-operational kitchen, tv and dvd reader, a large bathroom with a huge shower. Also an additional bed is available on a raised platform (the ceiling of the storage room) and the main bed can be folded away (raised parallel to the wall, in fact) to gain space through the day (and the bed is very comfortable, not those folding beds that would kill your back!!). Washing machine and dish-washer are also built in the kitchen and there is a iron if you need to fix your clothes. The place is in a nice neighborhood, i was raised there so i know what i mean, quiet, lots of places to eat, a nice park (caffarella), some 500 meters from a line A stop (3 stops to san giovanni (shopping area, beyond the church), 6 to termini railway station, 9 to piazza di spagna, more or less 1 minute per stop) and i saw that some reviewers mentioned the local market (via gino capponi), which in fact is a 5-mins walk and is a real-roman-life experience for those that have missed it so far. Overall i think it is perfect for those of you who like to be tourists and see new places but also like the feeling of being, although for a few days only, 'part of it'.
