More Information

The complex is easily accessible by public transport, and is serviced by the bus line 75 (connection to Trastevere- Circus Maximus, Pyramid of Cestius -Colosseum - Termini Station). A bus stop is located in front of the main entrance to the guesthouse. In addition, the house is well connected to the main railway stations: Trastevere Station– (10 min. on foot) - Quattro Venti Station (7 min. on foot), where a train connects to the Metro station line A - Valle Aurelia – 1 stop) and airport hubs. Fiumicino Airport is easily accessible by train from Trastevere Station – a 27 min. journey - and vice-versa.

Vatican City is 3 km from the guesthouse (35 min. on foot).

Close to the House is the Janiculum Hill ( 20 min. on foot), considered by many as one of the most romantic and picturesque places in Rome. Walk along the pathways, and enjoy a beautiful view of the Eternal City. The Hill is very popular due to the important historical role that it played in the defence of the city. Its paths are lined with sculptures of the heroes, including Giuseppe Garibaldi.

The Fontana dell'Acqua Paola, also called 'Er Fontanone' (The Big Fountain) is nearby ( 15 min. on foot from the House). This monumental marble fountain is a baroque jewel, that graces the Janiculum landscape with its splendour. The fountain was created during the 17th century to celebrate the re-opening of an old Roman aqueduct.

The entrance to the 4th century Catacombs of Ponziano is at 55 Via Alessandro Poerio. Access can be gained by requesting permission to visit from the Pontifical Commission for Sacred Archeology. Send an email to at least 10 days before the desired visiting date.

The Villa Sciarra (park) is situated between the districts of Trastevere, Gianicolo and Monteverde Vecchio, and is known for the unique animal shaped topiary in the gardens.

A magnificent sunset is usually on display in the late afternoon from the top of the Gianicolo Hill. And it's well worth waking up very early in the morning to enjoy the beautiful sunrise and the stunning view of the city, directly from the window of your guest room!

jill hollingshead from Pittsburgh, United States02 Mar 2024

We stayed for 2 nights in February. No english was spoken but one of the sisters was very good with a translate app. They were very, very nice and the place was immaculate - the cleanest place we have ever stayed. It is in a neighborhood setting - so very quiet but there are several good restaurants within a few blocks and a close walk to the train station and busy area in trastevere. Very glad we stayed.
