What an amazing Valentine's Day cum long weekend. My partner had never been to Rome before though I have, numerous times (I'm hoping I'll stumble across a job I can leave policing in London for!) Safe to say she will definitely return, due in no small measure to the nature of where we stayed. Been pretty lucky every time with accommodation but we really hit the jackpot this time. We were getting a little stressed in a cab en route to SJT because we were getting quite late for the time we had arranged to meet Giorgio. He could not have been more welcoming and, as soon as our bags were down, had cups of Italian coffee served up and a large city map, which he orientated us around - where to eat locally, feasible walks, those requiring transport and his own recommendations (definitely worth listening to). The B&B is in easy reach of the central historial attractions and was ideal for getting to the Via Appia Antica, where we wanted to hire bikes one sunny morning.
Giorgio runs the venue with his brother, alternating in 3 weeks stints I think, and both have stepped aside from other professions. I didn't meet Marco but can only assume he's every bit as charming. The venue itself is finished to a really beautiful standard and is very newly refurbished: clean, modern, elegant, and the pastries he ships in from a nearby bakery every morning are just what you need before a day of walking and sightseeing.
In short, we can't recommend this place highly enough. I only hope the pair manage to branch out and set down their standards in other parts of the city. Grazie Giorgio! Mark and Rachael
