The apartment is out of the hustle of central areas, in a quiet and residential zone, but well connected to the center (25min, bus+metro), Eur (10min, bus), Trastevere (20 minutes, bus or urban train) to Termini station (30 minutes, bus+metro) and Fiumicino airport (25 min, urban train).
The apartment: 110sqm, is large, bright, with a huge living room (with 2 sofa beds for 3 people) and three bedrooms of different sizes (2 double beds and a bunk bed), a kitchen fully equipped, two bathrooms and a large covered outdoor area, with barbecue and table and chairs, it can comfortably accommodate 8/9 people (max 10 if you shrink a bit :-), I can add an extra bed in B3), perfect for large families and groups of friends.
All the amenities: free WiFi Internet, digital TV, heating, 2 washing machines and a dishwasher, water electricity and gas, easy parking and at walking distance to all the shops and pizzerias of Via del Trullo (including a lovely local market), also close to the ER Israelite Hospital (you never know...), and nearby a nice small public park.
NEW: I can arrange a typical roman dinner cooked at your place, will be fun to enjoy the making of it by a professional cook, or it can be delivered already cooked from next door!
(of course there is a local cost for it, to be dealt upon request)
It will be a pleasure to welcome you and offer you all the information about the area and about Rome in general (and perhaps also to Out-of-Rome), and you will find this apartment perfect for your rest after a day out sightseeing in Rome.
I might also provide the guests with a local mobile phone, for max safety.
Contact me by email before booking in order to receive more info and to agree a meeting procedure.
About the neighborhood.
The location is SW of Rome, half way in the route City-Airport (Fiumicino), it's a residential, quiet and green area, although the apartment is 5 minutes away (walking) from Via del Trullo, a main street where you can find small shops, a nice local typical market with all you may need (grocery, butcher, fishfood and more), a discount supermarket, a "normal" supermarket and (taking a bus) a little shopping mall. If you want a big mall you'll have to take the Urban Train, but I doubt this will be interesting for you... :-)
How to move in Rome from Via Tempio di Dia?
Although it reaches almost every small corner of the city, the surface transportation in Rome is very complex and sometimes could result quite slow, therefore it is adviceable to only use it to commute to the nearest Metro (underground) or Urban Train station. Of course if there is none nearby, Buses are anyway a good option although must be considered a longer trip.
Rome offers integrated solutions for the transport tickets, therefore when you buy a ticket you can also use it for the Metro or the Urban Train, and these are some options:

• BTI - INTEGRATED TOURIST TICKET (€ 16,50) - valid 3 days from first validation –unlimited journeys
• CIS - INTEGRATED WEEKLY TICKET (€ 24,00) - valid 1 week from first validation –unlimited journeys
Where can I use these tickets?
On all public transport within Rome:
- on buses, trams, trolleybuses and Cotral coaches
- on the metro lines A and B
- on Met.Ro regional trains: Rome-Lido, Viterbo, Pantano
- on Trenitalia regional trains (travelling second class)

Ein praktisch eingerichtetes Apartment in einem authentischen Lebensumfeld. Sehr angenehm ist, dass die Küche schon mit allerlei Grundzutaten zum Kochen und Frühstücken ausgestattet ist (Salz, Pfeffer, Öl, Marmelade, etc.). Bei wärmerem Wetter hätten wir sicher auch auf der Terrasse mal gegrillt.
Außerdem bekommt man immer einen Parkplatz direkt vor der Haustür. Allein wenn man häufig kurz wegfährt, muss man bei der Rückkehr die 'Ehrenrunde' über den Berg drehen (wegen der Einbahnstraße). Das hat uns aber nicht gestört, da wir uns tagsüber in der Altstadt aufgehalten haben...
Alles in allem ein empfehlenswerte Unterkunft. Nomen est omen: "Cheap&Chic".
