     Description 


Large apartment located in Via dei Fienili n° 60 in the heart of the
Rome's historical centre, at the foot of the Capitol, close by the
Roman Forum, just minutes from the Coliseum.

The flat has three double-size bedrooms and a large living/dining
room. In the living/dining room there is a double sofa-bed. The
kitchen is fully stocked with crockery and pots. The bathroom has a
shower. Air conditioning is provided.
As it is a 16th-century building, there is no elevator, just two
flights by foot.

AREA DESCRIPTION
The apartment is situated between Circo Massimo and the Jewish
Quarter. On its southern side, the Palatine Hill drops suddenly down
to the Circo Massimo, a long, thin, green expanse bordered by
heavily trafficked roads that was the ancient city's main venue for
chariot races. The arena could apparently hold a crowd of around
200.000 betting punters, and if it were still even half-intact it
would no doubt match the Colosseum for grandeur.

Just back the Jewish Quarter you find Piazza Bocca della Verità,
past two of the city's better preserved Roman temples - the Temple
of Portunus and the Temple of Hercules Victor, the latter long known
as the temple of Vesta because, like all vestal temples, is
circular.

Both date from the end of the second century BC, and although you
can't get inside, they're actually fine examples of republican-era
places of worship; and the Temple of Hercules Victor is, for what
it's worth, the oldest surviving marble structure in Rome. More
interesting is the church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin on the far side
of the square, a typically Roman medieval basilica with a huge
marble altar and a colorful and ingenious Cosmati-work floor - one
of the city's finest.

Outside in the portico, and giving the square its name, is the Bocca
della verità (Mouth of Truth), an ancient Roman drain cover in the
shape of an enormous face that in medieval times would apparently
swallow the hand of anyone who hadn't told the truth. It was
particularly popular with husbands anxious to test the faithfulness
of their wives, now it is one of the city's biggest tour bus
attractions.

From here the visitor can walk to the Forum, Piazza Navona, Fontana
di Trevi, Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Campo dei Fiori or across the
Tiber river to enchanting Trastevere, famous for its narrow streets
and cozy restaurants
