This place is amazing. The "rocca" (castle) would originally have comprised the whole village. The village has since expanded to one side, so the rocca is now at the far end of Capena, facing a semi-pedestrianized square with a friendly café. As there is no through traffic, and as the walls are extremely thick, silence is assured. Capena is ideal to explore (by car) the villa that Emperor Hadrian had built for himself in Tivoli, as well as the various villas and gardens built by the Roman nobility in the 16th century (villa d'Este, villa Lante, Bomarzo, palazzo Farnese in Caprarola, etc.). Rome is only 45 min by car and can easily be visited for the day. The apartment itself has everything one needs; Juliet is helpful and efficient. Capena has a delicious ice-cream shop, a few restaurants and a small supermarket. There are a few steps both inside and outside the apartment. more
