We want to thank you for all your help. Our stay in Rome could not have been so wonderful without your assistance. The apartment was perfect, and the location could not have been better. New Years Eve [2009-2010] was fabulous, and the trip to Tivoli to celebrate my birthday was a great way to end our adventure. I will recommend your services to others that I know.

"Leonardo" is a large, well appointed apartment is situated in the very heart of Rome, at the second floor of a vintage "palazzo". There is no elevator but the stairs are very easy to climb.

The apartment is 140 sq. Mts. large (app. 1,420 sq. Ft.). Moreover there is a 50 sq. Mts. terrace (app. 520 sq. Ft.).

The apartment is normally bright, and extremely quiet (a find in Rome). Via della Croce on the contrary is lively, although only pedestrians are allowed. It includes characteristic restaurants, trendy cafes, fashionable boutiques and cosy grocery stores.

The Spanish Steps are a few blocks away. All the other smart streets around the Steps can be found here: Via del Babuino with its antiquaries, Via Margutta with its art studios, Via Condotti with its ateliers (Valentino, Versace, Armani, Ferragamo, Fendi etc.) and jewelers (Bulgari and Armani). There are also international book shops, a renowned academy of music (Santa Cecilia), and the famous Caffè Greco.

The terrace can thus be accessed separately from all the bedrooms and from the kitchen, so it can be used by the each member of larger groups without disturbing the other party persons.
