Where do I start. Forget about the accommodations. What makes this place amazing is the owner, Luca. Although the accommodations are great too.
Luca made our stay unbelievable. I chose his B&B because of all of the amazing reviews and emailed him to reserve our stay. He offered a taxi to pick us up from the airport, which we jumped at since we had never been to Rome before. When we arrived to Rome, there was our driver waiting for us in a Mercedes and took us directly to Luca's place. Arriving at Luca's, he came down and brought us upstairs to his B&B. We checked in and he told us to go freshen up and then come out and we will plan out our stay. Even though I had read about how he does this with his guests, I was still pleasantly surprised with the offer. Plus, he took the time to get to know us personally, bonding with us over the fact that he spent time in LA (which is where we are from). In fact, he spent time at UCLA, which is where my wife just graduated from, so there was an immediate bond. So we sat down with Luca for about 45 minutes just planning our 3 days in Rome. And everything he told us to do was spot on. Getting around was made easy with his directions and his goal is to make you live Rome like a Roman. His advice, which can be unnerving at first, is to just get lost in Rome. Just walk the streets and go through the alleys. That is where you will find the true Rome. And he was right!
And his food recommendations were perfect. We told him that we have a few dietary restrictions as we don't eat pork and don't consume any alcohol, even for cooking purposes. So he sent us to 2 different restaurants on consecutive nights, told us a couple of things to order from each place and those 2 meals were the best meals we had on our entire 2 weeks Europe trip. And once the restaurant knows that Luca sent you, you are automatically known as "Luca's friends" and treated like family. Also, 2 of the most cost effective meals we had on our trip.
As far as the accommodations, everything was great. The location is perfect since it is a 10 minute walk to Vatican City or to the river. Nice shopping around the area as well.
The room was spacious and well equipped. The bed was very comfortable too. And the breakfast, which is at a little pastry shop around the corner was perfect. Great chocolate croissant if you are interested.
Overall, our entire stay in Rome was amazing, and we owe it all to Luca. Thanks for helping us start off our trip on the right foot!
