The SpaceIt is a lovely apartment with two double bedrooms, each with its own balcony (a big one connecting one bedroom to the kitchen, and a small one in the other bedroom), and an airy open living room.
The apartment is at the 8th floor (far from the noise and pollution of the street -- anyway, both one of the bedrooms and the kitchen open on a very silent courtyard), it is very bright and freshly renewed. Guest AccessThe apartment is provided beddings, towels, wi-fi and it is fully furnished. Interaction with Guestsio staro' fuori roma durante l'estate, ma a disposizione per ogni esigenza. The NeighborhoodThe apartment is located in a neighborhood called Casalbertone.
This is a small neighborhood, at a walking distance from the heart of Roman night life (san Lorenzo, Pigneto), and yet very quiet and family friendly. It has everything you need. In the very same apartment block you'll find a lovely little open market (with the best prices in Rome for vegetable, fish and meat!), plenty of little shops, a pharmacy, the post office, two great fish restaurants, wine shop, pizza places, an artisanal beer shop. There is also an Auchan supermarket at 300 mt from the apartment.
Some more details:
Casalbertone has been the set for some in between the most representative movies in Italian neorealism. Here were filmed, for example, "I soliti Ignoti" by Monicelli, "Mamma Roma" and "Una vita violenta" by Pier Paolo Pasolini.
If you love fish, there are two great fish restaurants just downstairs in via Pittaluga.
“La fraschetta del Pesce” is more rustic and genuine, and definitely cheaper – typical mediterranean fish kitchen, you will not be disappointed. If you like grilled fish, take the grigliata for 40 euros (at least for two persons, it's a lot of fish!), and you will not be disappointed!
“L'arte del gusto” is more elegant, calm and quiet. The food is more elaborated and there are always more than one interesting surprise in the menu. Highly recommanded to those who like experimenting in eating. The prices are a bit higher than “la fraschetta del pesce”, but the quality/price ratio is still very good.
If you like pizza
A lovely take away Neapolitan pizza place, they also make the typical Neapolitan fried pizza. It is just in front of the post office in via di Casalbertone (go right when you get off this building, and take a right at the first corner).
I've never eaten there, but there is also a very well known and awarded take away pizza in via di Portonaccio 33a: (URL HIDDEN) They also make gluten free pizza.
If you want a pizza restaurant, you can go to the La 'Nduja Calabrian restaurant in Piazza s.Maria Consolatrice. And they are not only pizzeria, but you can also have other Calabrian specialties!
Our block is filled with vegetable, fish, groceries shops, you will be spoiled for choice. However, the best way to buy food is definitely to take a walk around the block in the morning, and visit the open air little market (go left when you get off the building, and take a left at the first corner). You'll find great vegetables grown by the farmers, groceries, cheese, fish, meat...
An organic grocery and herbalist shop is in Via Carlo Mezzacapo, 4.
If you are looking for a supermarket, there is a very cheap one at the corner between via di portonaccio and via di Casalbertone, otherwise a quite bigger one in via di Portonaccio 72. Finally, there is an Auchan mall at only 300 mt from the apartment: take via di Casalbertone and take a right after 300mt in via Pollio. Getting AroundThe train and metro b station Tiburtina is at a 15' walk. there are also two high frequency buses passing just round the corner that takes you there. at a 10min walking distance, in Largo Preneste, tram 5, 14, 19, buses (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).
