What a wonderful stay we had at the Appia Antica Resort. It really felt like home. The apartment we were in was beautifully and tastefully decorated with style and consisted of a living room, two bedrooms, kitchen (with dishwasher and laundry washing machine – which came in very handy!!) and a bathroom with a great, great shower. An added bonus was that the kitchen was ready for us with goodies for breakfast and lunch, and wine waiting for us. What an added treat.
When we arrived, we were greeted by Maurizio, Luisa and son Alessandro, who helped with our bags and showed us around. Maurizio and Luisa spent a lot of time with us, making sure we were comfortable and informed about the local sites – and we saw them spending a lot of time with other guests as well, making sure they knew where to go, history of various sites, where to eat.
The garden is beautiful and very relaxing. Rome can be a very frantic place, with lots of tourists, buses, the metro, sightseeing and a lot of walking around. When we were tired, we were able to come back to the Appia Antica Resort and relax under the shade of the trees in the garden and read, relax and take a rest, listening to the birds in the trees and the occasional splash of the koi in the koi pond. This is a great benefit at the Appia Antica Resort.
The Appia Antica Resort is less than one kilometer from the ancient Appian Way (the Appia Antica). It was so close that we took several walks and also went jogging on the old stones of that ancient Roman roadway. That is something that most tourists never get to do. So when you stay at the Appia Antica Resort, make sure you explore the Appia Antica!
Also, the WiFi was exceptional. Other places we have stayed had WiFi, but it never seems to work that well. At the Appia Antica Resort, it was working great. The whole family was able to use it.
We looked at the other apartments at the Appia Antica Resort, to be informed for future visits. They are all well-appointed and look very comfortable. They have done a wonderful job with this place and I would highly recommend it.
