Right at the very heart of Renaissance and Baroque Rome, this neighborhood is by far the most popular destination for vacationers. It seems that every winding street (some of which are no more than a block long!) is hopelessly picturesque, and every building (be it humble apartments or extravagant palaces) still looks as it did when it was first built. The crumbling paint on ancient façades and ramshackle street shrines elicits no criticism, but rather a longing to take more photographs. And just let a little kitten stray onto a balcony to sun itself between the potted geraniums, and you are liable to get a pedestrian traffic jam on the cobblestones below. Whether you wander through this tiny enclave by day or by night, it feels like you are strolling along the hallways of an outdoor private residence, yet turn one corner and you come face to face with the hopelessly ornate and rotund church of Santa Maria della Pace, or reach the end of another alley and you are suddenly standing in what many consider to be the most breathtaking square in all of Europe: Piazza Navona. If you are looking for broad thoroughfares lined with glittering skyscrapers, this is definitely not the place for you. But want to feel as though you've stepped through the Looking Glass into 16th-century Rome? Then we suggest you make this charming apartment your casa romana.

Up 17 steps from the street on the first floor, overlooking one of the most colorful outdoor food markets left in downtown Rome, and around the corner from a cluster of the most fashionable sidewalk cafes in town, the apartment measures 750 square meters and boasts a true rarity in vacation rentals: a 650-square-foot private terrace furnished with table, chairs, sun chairs and umbrella, and brightened by many flowering plants. True Romans find la terrazza to be a more important landmark than an ancient temple, and that may be partly because you can sit outside during the day almost any month of the year. The terrace is a few steps up from the large dining room, which also has a table and chairs. Just inside the front door is a large entry with a single sleep sofa; next is the small but efficient kitchen, featuring an oven, four burners, mini-fridge, kettle and toaster; then there is a large living/dining room. Completing the apartment is a big quiet bedroom with king-size bed, large mirror, wardrobe and two big windows overlooking the alley; and a bathroom with stall shower. Throughout, the floors are covered with the original terracotta, most of the tall ceilings still have the original wooden casements, and much of the furniture is antique, including the golden wall sconces. Adding a welcome 21st-century touch are independent heating, air conditioning, and telephone.
