Review 470: Comfortitalia, Gallo


Review by Paul M. from MA

2bed/1bath apartment near Campo de' Fiori, Rome


last week of December 2002, one week


Our family (two adults plus three children - 8, 16 and 21 years old) stayed in the Gallo apartment in Rome during the last week of December. We were very pleased with this accommodation. The apartment provided enough room and a comfortable stay for all of us. The heating system was very efficient, so we could make the temperature inside as warm as we like, which is important in December when it is cold outside. Also, we all could take shower one after another, and it was always enough hot water. New stove and refrigerator were convenient, and a big dining table in one of the rooms was good for all of us.

The main advantage of this apartment is its great location, right in the heart of the old city of Rome “Historic Center”. We were within a walking distance to main attractions such as Pantheon, Vaticano, Forum, Colosseum, Spanish Steps, etc. There are many restaurants and attractions in close proximity to the apartment. Also, probably because of Christmas, there were everyday fairs at Piazza Navona (a couple minutes walk from the apartment) with their clowns and various attractions.

The shopping was also very convenient, including a big grocery store near Pantheon and an everyday food market at the nearby Campo dei Fiori. We are thankful to Helen and Pino for their hospitality and for showing us around during our first day. We had a great time and learned a lot about ancient Rome, its history and art, as well as got a sense of modern Rome.
