Review

David and I absolutely loved this apartment! Even though it was on the outskirts of the city, tram 8, right in front of the apartment building, got us to all the tourist sites in minutes. And we enjoyed leaving the clamor of Rome behind and returning to the ambiance of our peaceful neighborhood at the end of a long sightseeing day.

We had worried a bit about the location but it proved to be ideal. We loved staying in Monteverde!

There's a very large open-air market next door with stands selling bread, cheese, fish, produce and a hundred other things. We loved this market as well as the Frontoni Restaurant across the street with the world's best lasagna, and Tony's gelato a few doors down from Frontoni.

The apartment itself is huge with three spacious bedrooms and two big bathrooms. The apartment felt cozy for the two of us yet would be spacious for a much larger group, too. The furniture and beds are all quite comfortable, while the kitchen is well-equipped.

Morgan did everything possible to make us feel at home, giving advice about trams and buses, as well as neighborhood markets. He arranged for us to contact a shuttle from the airport at a reasonable price, and went out of his way to correct the problem with the satellite TV as we didn't have BBC in English when we first arrived. Since there were only two of us, we paid 100 a night. I believe the price varies depending on the number of guests.

David and I agree that this is the place we'll return to the next time we're in Rome. I only hope Frontoni's is still making that incredibly delicious lasagna! We highly recommend this rental, one of our favorites of our five-week trip, and know you will not be disappointed whether there are two of you or twelve!
