À propos de ce logement
Testaccio is one of the oldest and most characteristic areas of Rome, an area which, even though it is now one of the most fashionable areas of the modern-day city, has nevertheless retained its original spirit.
Located close to such important historic sites as the Circus Maximus and the Bocca della Verità, Testaccio takes its name from Monte Testaccio, a mound of discarded pottery created by the Romans between the 2nd and 3rd centuries BC. The Latin name for the area (testa e cocci) refers to the fact that it was characterized by discarded fragments of the amphorae used to transport goods from the sea port of Ostia Antica to the river port on the banks of the River Tiber which served the city of Rome.
Today Testaccio is famous for its trattorias, restaurants in which it is possible to sample some of the most authentic specialities of Roman cuisine, and its nightlife. Indeed, some of the most fashionable bars and nightclubs in Rome are located in Via Monte Testaccio, a street which skirts the artificial mound of ancient pottery from which the Testaccio area takes its name. Many of the bars are dug into the ancient pottery hillside and it is possible to see fragments of antique amphorae in their walls.
The apartment is located in Via Mastro Giorgio, a street which joins Piazza Testaccio, the site of picturesque daily fruit, vegetable, herb and flower market, and Piazza Santa Maria Liberatrice, the square which is traditionally recognized as the heart of Testaccio and is famous for its theatre and delightful public gardens. The famous Sunday-morning Porta Portese flea market is also held just a short distance from the apartment.
However, Testaccio is also famous for another ‘historic’ reason: it is home to Campo Testaccio, the football ground at which AS Roma football club was founded in the 1930s.
The apartment lies just a short distance from Piramide underground station (Linea B) and is well served by the city bus service.
Located in a characteristic palazzo with concierge in Via Mastro Giorgio, in the heart of Testaccio, the 40 m² first floor apartment is divided into a day area, composed of a kitchenette with hob, oven, fridge, pots, pans, crockery and cutlery and a dining table, and a sleeping area composed of a double bed at ground level and a second double bed on a balcony floor. The bathroom is fitted with shower.
The apartment also has satellite TV, an autonomous heating system, air conditioning and free WI FI Internet access.
The apartment can sleep up to 4 people.
This accommodation is perfect for families with small children wishing to visit the city by public transport by day and to relax in one of the many local restaurants in the evening.
