Set up camp on the patio and watch local Roman life take shape around you – it’s a wonderful spot for a morning coffee or evening drinks. Slide apart the glass doors and find that this home is more modern than a lot of what’s on offer in this city – and with a warmth not always common in modern design. We love the pale wood kitchen island and suede lounge chairs. You’ll be situated on the border of Testaccio and Ostiense, a far cry from the crowds of Piazza di Spagna. The local neighbourhood is slowly shifting, but there’s still plenty of character, street art and independent restaurants – indeed, Testaccio is famous as the centre of Roman cuisine. You'll be just fifteen minutes from the glass-roofed Testaccio market and its culinary delights, and even closer to the Tiber River, where you can take lovely sunset walks along the watery heart of the city. Plus, a lovely thirty-five-minute walk will find you in the centre of Rome, for any and all the sightseeing you desire.
Home truths: *This is a studio flat, so while two guests can fit on the sofa beds in the living area at full occupancy, we think this home is better suited to two guests
*The fridge is on the smaller side
*Some noise from the street carries into the flat
