By plane - Rome Ciampino Airport (CIA) - Terravision - This is a direct bus service, timed to coincide with flights, which connects Ciampino with Stazione Termini in the centre of Rome. This airport service has always seemed fairly efficient, and is, after a taxi, the most efficient and comfortable way to get into Rome. The journey takes around 40 minutes, depending on traffic. If you book online you can avoid ticket queues, and at the time of writing there is an online special offer with tickets for ¤5 one way/¤10 return instead of ¤8/¤14.

By train - Central Station (named "Roma Termini") is 10 minutes walking (400 mt). Frecciarossa trains (high speed trains) link Rome to Florence in 90 minutes, to Naples in 70 minutes, to Venice in 3 hours and half.

Subway - "Termini" is the only subway station in Rome where you'll find two subway lines (Line A - red one - and B line - the blue one). The station is 10 minutes walking (400 mt). Line A (2 stops) links termini to Piazza di Spagna. Line B (2 stops) links Termini to Colosseum. A single ticket is ¤ 1,00.

Who we are

  1. I'm Alberto, in early 30's, living in my new home from January 2010. I don't have pets but do enjoy them. I'm a meeting organizer, bricoleur addicted (!). I love Rome and this home, having appreciation for music, art, architecture, fascinate with different local life styles, cultures, and people and enjoying nature. I will be happy to share and exchange my home with all people all around the world! I hope you can feel it!

    I'm open for suggestions as there are many places that I wish to visit.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

San Lorenzo is a district (quartiere) in Rome.

It occupies roughly the two sides of the early stretch of Via Tiburtina, starting from Termini railway station and ending at the Verano area. The latter includes the ancient basilica of San Lorenzo fuori le Mura, which the district takes its name from.

Originally a working-class neighborhood (its inhabitants were mostly workers of the Peroni brewery and the freight yard), it has been a popular, left-oriented area. During World War II San Lorenzo was heavily bombed by Allied planes (on 1943-07-19); the only massive bombing of Rome during the war (though not the only air raid on the city), it aimed at disrupting the railway communication pivoting on the nearby huge freight yard; however, it caused also extensive damage to the buildings of the district (including the Policlinico Umberto I and the basilica itself) and killing some 1,500 people.

Maria Montessori's first 3-6 age program was started in San Lorenzo in 1907.

Today San Lorenzo, due to the vicinity of the La Sapienza University, is increasingly assuming the character of a student and young artist district. Every evening, hundreds of young people descend on the area. Pizzerias, boutiques and other modern places are subsequently replacing the old popular workshops and small markets.
