My partner and I went to Rome for her 30th birthday. We were a little concerned being a same sex couple staying in a double room within the vatican area, but we were made very welcome.
It felt like we were staying in someone's home, with lots of italian artefacts, paintings, books (which you could borrow). It was beautifully simple, yet authentic. The landlord, Enrico, was incredibly friendly, lending us a plug socket which allowed us to use our british gadgets and went out of his way to ensure we had all that we needed.
He made my partner's day when we returned to the B&B on the eve of her birthday to discover a little card and small birthday present along with a bottle of wine and cork screw. We were both really touched by his kindness. He made our stay in rome very special. We shall certainly return again.
Although there was no breakfast at the B&B literally the next building along was a cafe which served international breakfast for 8 euros which included coissant, scrambled eggs/ omlette and two coffees. We felt well set to go after that!!
The location is great..... to the right you make your way to the vatican and to the left to the bridge which takes you to the centre. It felt very safe at night walking home and everywhere you look (up) you see the most beautiful buildings and where ever you are heading to you often accidentally stumble across a beautiful fountain, statue or building.
My partner's birthday was brilliant in rome and was made extra special by Antiqua Roma..... so thank you very much... and we shall see you again
