We stayed only two nights at the Appia Antica as the final stop on our trip, it was kind of an after thought but we are so glad we did; what a place. Our real regret was that we could not stay longer. Maurizio and his family were so warm and instantly made us feel at home, explaining right from our arrival, all the local sights, how to get there, maps, tours etc. We'd been to Rome before, but if this was your first time, what a great way to start. Appia Antica Resort is a meticulously presented stay, complete with gardens, pond, trees, grass, a really relaxing environment hidden behind a busy street on the hidden part of Rome that few tourist really bother to go to; The Old Appian Way, the road that transformed Rome and created the great expansion of its empire 2000 odd years ago, full of ruins very few people get to see.
Yet, its still with easy travel to the centre of Rome and the apartment we stayed at (2 adults and 2 teenage children) I would safely describe as the best place we have ever stayed at, anywhere it terms of value for dollar, functionality, comfort and style.
Plus as an added bonus, Maurizio gave us a packed four hour tour of the Appian Way and surrounding sights and he even shouted us a cafe and cake at a local bar along the way.
When we go back to Rome, we now know where to stay, we have found a haven amongst the ruins.
A great place for a family, with or without a car, we had a car and because it is easy access to the Roman ring road, it made for a very fast and easy arrival and quick access straight to the airport, much less traffic than other parts to Rome.
Thanks Maurizio and Maria-Luisa, it was a quality two days which we hope to extend next time.
Angelo, Rosa & Family
