One of Rome's most beloved meeting places is Piazza del Popolo. Just down the street from the Spanish Steps and across the river from St. Peter's, it sits at the foot of Europe's largest municipal park. At the center of the piazza, four majestic lions guard an Egyptian obelisk that has called Rome home since the year 10 BC, when Emperor Augustus loaded it onto a trireme and sailed it across the Mediterranean. On the northern side of the square is Gian Lorenzo Bernini's triumphal gate, built in 1655 to welcome Sweden's Queen Cristina, whose conversion to Catholicism was a giant leap forward for the propagation of the faith. After that, all visitors from the north entered the city through this elaborately-carved gate and were greeted by the "twin" churches that flank either side of Via del Corso. When you are in the piazza, take a good look at these churches and you'll notice one of the many tricks Rome loves to play on her admirers: because one plot of land was narrower than the other, architects Bernini and Carlo Fontana had to adjust the perspective so that they would LOOK identical. Now that you know all the secrets of Piazza del Popolo, head over to Canova or Rosati, the two ultra-chic cafes that face each other from opposite sides of the churches. These are the "in spots" for morning cappuccino or afternoon apertivi, and if you choose to stay at Rome Terrace Apartment, guess what? They will be your neighborhood hang-outs! As will Dal Bolognese, one of the locals' all-time favorite restaurants.

Your beautiful Roman digs are just a block from all this, on the first floor of a 100-year-old elevator building. A long hallway leads from the foyer and through the dining room to the bright, sunny kitchen, fitted with a full fridge/freezer, 5-burner gas range, oven, dishwasher and washing machine. Big picture windows open onto the terrace, embellished with plants to almost give you the sensation of living in the country as you sunbathe. For many months of the year, you can enjoy meals al fresco under the covered portion of the terrace.

Off the dining room is the big bright living room, furnished with two sofas, a satellite TV, VCR and telephone. At the other end of the hall, facing away from the street, are three large bedrooms, each with its own en suite bathroom with stall shower. All three of these bedrooms can have a king bed or twin beds. Rounding out the amenities in this immaculate apartment are an overabundance of storage space, beautiful parquet or tile floors, air conditioning and heating throughout.
