Rome – Amphora House


A historic building in the heart of the Real Rome. A district famous for the people, genuinely roman, who animates it and for the ancient and recent history visible at every street corner.
Full of nightclubs, museums, restaurants and cultural events.

why I love this place

This second floor apartment is situated in a historical building in the quaint neighborhood of Testaccio is and is an ideal base for a stay in Rome. It is a perfect starting point for visiting the most important sites in the city, many of which can be reached on foot. (The Coloseum, The Cestia Pyramid, The Circus Maximus, The Bocca della Verita’, The Campidoglio, The Baths of Caracalla and Trastevere).

The apartment is only a 5 minute walk from the Ostiense station, where trains leave for Fiumicino International Airport, Ostia Antica,  Ostia Lido. It is also on the B line of the metro.

Eataly is also near the station. It is a large food market, where you can shop for food products and also eat in one of the many restaurants that can be found there.

The apartment is in a very favorable location, right on the main square in Testaccio. The view is one of its very strong points.  Testaccio is one of the most bustling neighborhoods in Rome. It has many traditional “botteghe”, old fashioned food shops, and one of the oldest, historical open-air markets that can be found right here.  The nightlife in this neighborhood is very interesting. There are many pubs, pizzerias, restaurants that offer truly authentic traditional Roman dishes such as: Pasta alla Carbonara, Pasta al Cacio e Pepe, Pasta con la Pajata (a delicacy made with veal intestines), fried artichokes, tripe etc.

On a typical Sunday morning, you need only to cross a bridge (Ponte Sublicio) to be at Porta Portese, the famous open-air market of used goods where a bit of everything is sold.

The apartment is cozy with a lot of light. It is extremely well-equipped with all necessities (air conditioning, WiFi, TV, dishwasher, washing machine, hair dryer, shampoo etc.) There is one bedroom with a double bed and a single bed, a livingroom with a sofabed, a kitchen and a bathroom.

Inside the apartment there are books and maps about the city, suggestions on cultural and culinary tours, instructions on how to use the public transportation.

Our guests will have two bikes available to them for rides around the city (the Vatican is only 15 minutes away by bike following the bike path that runs on the left bank of the Tiber River, 100 metres from the apartment).

Safety devices:

A first-aid kit
