“A fabulous break in an unusual tower away from the busy city”
Reviewed 18 April 2011

A great place to stay offering peace and tranquility with the benefit of a pool, ideal after a long day walking around the city. The transfer to the city centre by bus is very easy and the local supermarket provides everything you need. The owner is charming and very helpful.

Have been twice to Torretta for two different weekends last year and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I love Rome and jump at any opportunity to go to the Eternal City. Torretta is like being in a parallel world. My room had views on the beautiful garden or better on the grounds! There was total silence.Only birds singing in the morning. It s incredible that this property is within Rome's city limits! My room had several windows a full bathroom with a fantastic shower. The bus stop is just outside the property and in 20 minutes you are in the Vatican! The charming owner showed me the other possibilities mainly the two bedroom 2 and half bathroom dependance with swimming pool that would make a great family holiday! Specially for bored children that hate Museums!... Where can you find a private pool in Rome??? Anyway Torretta is great for the single traveller like me and better still for families travelling with children. Pls don t change a thing!

My family and I stayed four nights at the torretta de'Massimi and completely enjoyed our stay. This is definitely a unique lodging experience that we wholeheartedly recommend. Our entire family had a terrific time. The tower is historic and interesting, while clean and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and animal lovers will enjoy seeing the chickens, dogs and donkeys (Skippy is an especially sweet little dog). The view from the top of the tower is wonderful and since we stayed over New Year's eve, it was a terrific place to view the fireworks that seemed to go on for over an hour in all directions - what a memory! There is a lovely fireplace in the family room that we all enjoyed sitting around in the evenings - very relaxing after a day of sightseeing. The city center is not difficult to reach by bus (a short walk to the bus stop) and there are two grocery stores nearby (one within walking distance, one better accessed by bus). But it is the owner that makes the experience so charming, he is so welcoming and kind that you feel completely at home. We highly recommend the torretta de'Massimi!

We spent a week at the Torretta de Massima. The estate is just amazing – beautiful tower, garden and surroundings. It is quiet and there is also a great swimming pool. The week was very hot and it was wonderful to go swimming after a sweaty visit to Rome. The tower is clean and well kept. The estate is outside Rome center but it is really easy to go Rome using a bus. It takes only about 25 minutes to reach the center of Rome. The owner of the estate is a very charming person who helped us in every way he could. We really recommend this estate when visiting at Rome.

It was a pleasure to stay at this fantastic property. The ambience is amazing. This quiet refuge has all the necessary conveniences and is a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the big metropolis of Rome. The landlord is a very nice gentleman who is knowledgeable and very helpful to make your stay as enjoyable as can be. Thank you very much for a great stay!
