My house is quite big and surrounded by a garden . The district of Garbatella, the area where I live, is quiet and nice, near the Appia Antica and the Via Cristoforo Colombo going to Ostia Antica and Lido del mare. Various shops can be found nearby and there are also many nice small parks to be explored in the surroundings. You can take the bus, metro, or walk directly to the old historic center easily (every 10 minutes there is a bus to historical center taking about 20 minutes /30 minutes to all places of interest (railway station Termini, Tevere’s riverside, Trastevere and so on).

It’s impossible to describe Rome in a few words but let’s give it a try… Cities don't come much more ancient, impressive or chaotic than the Italian capital of Rome. Visitors have been coming to this historic tourist destination for over 25 centuries and this 'Eternal City' contains more sights than you could possibly ever see during one holiday. Therefore it makes sense to prioritise, visit your chosen tourist attractions and then simply relax, soaking up the vibrant Italian atmosphere present in this capital whilst perhaps enjoying a coffee on one of the numerous spacious squares.
