Formerly the guest quarters of a 16th century monastery, Casa Galilei retains many original features such as exposed chestnut beams and hand-fired terracotta tiles throughout.. It is 200 sq.metres in size and arranged over 2 floors with an entrance at ground level outside the monastery and an entrance inside the monastery.

The property is located in the friendly village of Capena that offers plenty of local colour and history, as well as a good selection of restaurnts, bars and shops and a thriving artists' community. Because it is approximately 40 minutes by car or public transport from the centre of Rome, you can explore the Eternal City by day, and return to a quiet rural retreat in the evening. The coast and lakes can be reached by car in approximately 45 minutes. A couple of lovely pools set in their own leafy grounds are a short drive away. The location is ideal for exploring Rome and also areas to the north as far as Tuscany. After a hard day's sight-seeing, guests really appreciate relaxing in the friendly, village atmosphere and excellent, well-priced restaurants without a tourist menu in sight. As soon as your booking is confirmed, you will be sent a comprehensive information pack covering all your practical queries: transport, parking, shopping, eating etc. This will be followed by information on the house itself just before you travel (including lockbox codes, wifi codes)More

About the neighborhood
Capena is a thriving village of 5,500 inhabitants near the Sabine Hills. Despite its proximity to the city centre (it lies just 35km north of Rome along the Via Tiberina) the village retains a very distinct rural flavour – and many of the older residents have hardly ever set foot in the metropolis. The apartments are located in and around the town’s ancient Rocca, a rocky outcrop that initially housed a medieval fortress and settlement, later superseded by a Renaissance monastery. The monastery was gradually sold off to private individuals – many of them artists – in the seventies. One of the best-known artists living and working in Capena today is Rosina Wachtmeister. The sixteenth-century building then became the heart of a small separate community made up of a picturesque jumble of ho...
Getting around
You can take a 30 minute bus-ride from Capena to the outskirts of Rome (Saxa Rubra train station). There you can switch to a commuter train that will take you the last 15 minutes into the heart of Rome (Piazza del Popolo/Spanish Steps area). A daily ticket costs €8 and covers all bus/tram/metro rides within Rome and to and from Capena.
