Our home

Our apartment is a sun-filled 3-bedroom apartment located in a silent and carefully groomed condominium walking distance to St. Peter's square and many of Rome's sites. The apartment is immersed in nature as it is located on the edge of Rome's largest park (villa pamphili). There is no sound of cars here, just tweeting birds (and occasionally a dog barking). The flat has a large entrance, spacious living/dining area that opens onto a terrace surrounded by trees; a fully-equipped kitchen and a laundry room/pantry. One bedroom (ours) has a king-size bed, another (guest room/study) has a queen-size bed, and the third (our daughter's) has a kids-size one; these three rooms share two bathrooms (one with bath, the other with a shower). The decor is a mix between minimalist modern and Asian ethnic as I have a collection of Asian primitive sculptures. Note that there is no tv in the house. Next to the kitchen there is also a maid's room (single bed) with its own tiny bathroom. We employ a very trusted and sweet nanny/cleaner who comes in 4 days a week and sleeps over 3 nights a week (if needed), so should you wish to have her come in to clean the house while you are here, cook or even baby sit at no extra charge, she can. The condominium has a full-time doorman who is always extremely helpful. The building is not a traditional XVI centry baroc palazzo, rather a 1950s one and as such has its conveniences, among them a lift and garage.

Who we are

  1. Both my husband and I are Italian, but we lived abroad most of our lives. In 2013 we decided to return to Rome. I (Claudia) work for an international NGO and commute between Rome and Tripoli (Libya) where we have another house (which - alas - is currently off-limits due to the ongoing fighting there). My husband (Marco) is a professor of Renaissance art history in Rome University. Our daughter Giulia is three, and attends the local kindergarden. We love to travel and would like to use homeforexchange as a means to discover new (even remote) destinations that we would not have otherwise chosen. We are open for long-weekend exchanges (Europe/Mediterranean/North Africa) or one/two-week ones. Non-simultaneous is also fine. I have not done home exchange before, but was lucky enough last year to have benefited from an exchange that my father had arranged but then could not use. My sister and I (and respective families) went instead and found ourselves in an amazing mountain lodge in the Adirondacks, NY. It was just great and hope to repeat similar experiences. Our extended family also has a seaside house in Tuscany which could also be made available should you wish to combine a week in Rome with another at the seaside.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The apartment is located in a popular residential neighborhood (Gregorio VII) full of interior design and household shops. Just 200 meters from the apartment there is a great food market open all mornings except Sunday and we regularly shop there for fresh fruit, vegetables and fish. The apartment is perfectly located for sightseeing as you can walk to St. Peter's square, the Vatican museum, Castel St. Angelo or just pop on one of the many buses that stop on nearby Via Gregorio VII to visit Piazza Navona, Piazza di Spagna or the Colosseum. It is best to use public transportation to go around Rome, but should you want to venture a little further out (say, to visit Ostia Antica, the Catacombs or Tivoli) there is the option of using our car. If you are coming with your own car, there is reserved parking in the garage. We also have two bikes, one of which has a child-seat.
