The Monti district is loaded with Roman character. It isn't as well known as other areas, yet it is right in the center of the Eternal City with many of the famous sights within walking distance. It is characteristically Roman, one of the most ancient neighborhoods in the city. Wonderful restaurants abound. History echoes with views of the Coliseum, the Roman Forum just a few minutes by foot. 2000 years ago this was the subura, the working class area of ancient Rome where Julius Cesar grew up. A number of the most important churches in Rome are nearby: St. John Lateran, St. Peter in Chains, St. Mary Major. This is also the neighborhood where the secrets of nuclear physics were first discovered by the Ragazzi of Via Panisperna. The "ragazzi" researched at one of the faculties of Sapienza - the University of Rome founded in 1303. Traditionally a neighborhood of craftsmen, you will find old crafts and modern arts and crafts side by side. Monti has gentrified over the last decade so there is a wealth of restaurants, beautiful shops with fine items of all kinds. Some guests find this more fun to explore than jostling with the crowds around the Spanish Steps.
Built in the 1800s, the building opens on Via Leonina about at the corner of Via dell'Angeletto. The immediate neighborhood is in the limited traffic zone, so mostly pedestrian traffic. The public areas have just been renovated with painting and decorative elements. The apartment is on the 4th floor, no elevator, 50 steps. You'll be well rewarded when you reach the apartment however and you can work off some of the pasta and gelato you are likely to enjoy during your time in Rome.
A terrace is a must-have for many of our guests and the Novello apartment fits the bill. The terrace is large and is a most enjoyable feature of this bright apartment. Decorative ironwork frames the view and urns. A ceramic-topped table an wrought iron chairs welcome you to enjoy the Roman skies at any time of day. The washing machine is in an enclosed area on the terrace.
The apartment as a very pleasant feel, bright, open and up-to-date. The living room has large windows onto the terrace that can be shaded with heavy drapes. It has a large sofa that converts to a queen-sized sofa bed. Facing the television is a European DVD player. The television has no broadcast reception so good for playing DVDs only. There is a library of English-language DVDs. There is also a dining table for four so you can prepare meals at home if you prefer.
Air conditioning is located in two places in the apartment, living room and bedroom to ensure your comfort. Wifi is complimentary.
The kitchen is open to the hallway to the living room on one side and to the bedroom on the other. It has a two burner gas stovetop, microwave oven and under-counter refrigerator. Mind the awkwardly placed step from the hall into the kitchen.
The kitchen opens onto the bedroom and bathroom. There is a door from the kitchen to the living room.
The bedroom is a comfortable size. It has a bed that is 140 cm x 200 cm (55" x 79"), bedside lamps and shelves. Closets on the side away from the window that overlooks an internal courtyard. The bedroom has a desk and then separated by a sliding door, a small study could be perfect for a privacy to work from Rome. The study has large windows that overlook a quiet internal courtyard....Read more

Loved the apartment and it's convenient location in the Monti district. All the major tourist sites are within easy walking distance. The apartment was clean and well equipped. This apartment is on the forth floor and may not be suitable for some since there is no elevator. My only suggestion for improvement would be to provide two lounge chairs for the rooftop patio which is a very large and pleasant space to spend your mornings and early evenings. W&D
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. The Italy Perfect Team

"Fantastic location for a trip to Rome"

The Novello apartment is in the fashionable Monti neighborhood, which is a fantastic location for a trip to Rome. The short walk to the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and Forum allowed us to soak in those magical places multiple times. The apartment is right down the block from the Cavour metro station, making use of public transit very easy. The neighborhood is fun and comfortable, with great restaurants and pedestrian life. I cannot think of a better location to stay in Rome.
Italy Perfect was extremely helpful and professional throughout the booking and pre-travel process. If you are arriving early in the day and want to shower and unpack before the evening, you will need to factor in the cost of checking in the night before. Italy Perfect makes this clear once you start the booking process, but it is good to know as you are reviewing apartment options from the very start.
We truly appreciated the wonderful recommendation for a private car from the Fiumicino airport, which made our arrival easy and relaxed. Consuelo, our greeter, was very helpful and professional, setting the tone for a special stay.
The apartment is on the top floor of a charming building, with a terrific patio. The apartment is remarkably quiet given the hustle and bustle below, and we could not hear any other units within the building. The bedroom is completely open to the kitchenette, but the living room has a door and can be used without disturbing anyone who is asleep. The apartment was very chilly in November, but there is an effective albeit bulky space heater. The bathroom is cramped by U.S. standards, but the living room is comfortable with good sitting options.
We appreciate your nice comments and are happy you enjoyed the wonderful location. The Italy Perfect Team.

"A refuge in the heart of Rome."
Left on 10/29/2013 for a stay in October 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Oct 29, 2013Stayed Oct 2013
A well appointed apartment for two was the perfect refuge just a stones throw from ancient Rome and in the middle of dynamic Monti. Being just down the street from the Metro, just a stop from Termini train station made this apartment perfectly located with less tourist hustle as other areas. The area was safe and friendly and close to everything we needed, yet designed to be very quiet. Given the layout of the kitchen being in the bedroom I would say this is really most suited for a couple or perhaps a family with children. Once you get over that you see its perfectly set up. The Terrace is a wonderful feature to be outside yet have privacy.
We are delighted that the Novello apartment was a perfect refuge for you! Thank you from the Italy Perfect Team.

We could not have selected a better apartment and location for our holiday. The apartment was spacious and well maintained and is located in a wonderful area. Fantastic pizza, pasta, pasteries and gelato are all on your doorstep - maybe too convenient! You are within walking distance of some of the most wonderful attractions in Rome. Booking ahead for our airport transfer and the Roma Pass provided for a carefree holiday. Pat Byrne and her staff took great care of us before and during our holiday and helped make it one we will not forget.
