Small gem next to the Roman Forum

This is a charming 1 br. in the hearth of Roman history and archeology, with a view of the Capitol Hill. The district is an oasis of peace and tranquillity between the Roman Forum and the Tiber - untouched by tourist crowds that may disturb a residence in the center of Rome. Custom made furniture and design pieces enrich the interior and the functionality of this stylish, recently re-decorated home. Floors are hardwood in the bedroom and cotto in the living room. Unlike most properties of its size, it has a large bathroom with bathtub, and a comfortable wardrobe, especially designed for the bedroom. Appliances - most of them brand new - include washer, dishwasher, fridge with freezer, vacuum cleaner. Has Wi Fi connection. The building is one of the most prestigious in the area, featuring an elegant entrance hall decorated with plants and ancient marbles, and a small green patio. The most inspiring landmarks of ancient, medieval, Renaissance and Baroque Rome are really in a stone's throw. Michelangelo's piazza and complex on the Campidoglio, or the breathtaking panorama of the Roman Forum (one of its exits is around the corner) may be on your way to work, or to shopping and meetings. You will be especially well connected to public transportation, close to nice Italian style cafés, and to some family owned shops just a few steps from your door. The nearby weekly market of "Campagna amica" is also a pleasant advantage for shopping natural produce, food and wine from the Roman countryside:


Most historic libraries, archives and cultural centers are in walking distance, for instance the Modern and Contemporary History library in Palazzo Mattei:


Very close to several Italian and foreign academic institutions, and FAO. Exchange proposals may also be considered.

About Me
I am an Italian art and architectural historian based in Istanbul, where I teach in the History Dept. of Bogaziçi (Bosphorus) University. I live on the Asian side of the city with my wife Miyuki - also an art historian - and our 13 years old daughter. Turkish, Italian, Japanese, English and French are the languages most heard at home, although the only one who masters them all is the child... We are a fairly nomadic family, traveling often together to conferences, or staying "abroad" (a rather relative concept for us) for research and sabbatical periods. We are lucky enough to own a small house in the heart of Rome, facing the Capitol Hill. This is the home mostly available for rent or exchange, but we may occasionally propose also our place in Istanbul, with a view of the Bosphorus...
