Your home in Rome at the Spanish Steps

The Spanish Steps - 9 October 2017
I've always loved staying in apartments when travelling. Not only do they have more space and privacy, you can actually feel like you're a local - even if it's for a make-believe short time. My October 2017 trip to Rome included one such local experience with four fabulous nights at this apartment:

The apartment is in an historic building and is owned by David and Laura, who live in Washington DC but rent out their Rome home to travellers keen to experience a long term stay and immerse themselves in the real Rome. David is Italian born and this is his childhood home, so the family connection adds an extra special element to your stay. The apartment is on Via delle Mercede - an incredibly convenient location, 5 minutes from the Spanish Steps and 7 minutes to the Trevi Fountain. You are literally in the middle of all the action and sights.
