The rooms we are offering are located in an elegant period building in the very heart of town where Piazza De Ferrari meets with the largest historical center in Europe. The apartment in which you will sojourn is located on the top floor, with lift, overlooking the old town roof tops and bell towers.
The building location is unique, as it faces Piazza de Ferrari, the most central and important square in the city, and it neighbours with the quaint streets and alleys of the old town center.
The apartment is on the top floor with a full 360° view and offers the opportunity to enjoy the two realities of the city:
On one side spacious and sunny streets with accessibility to all public transportation services (taxi, bus, metro). On the other, the magic of old town multiethnic melting pot.
The neighborood caters to all tastes, teeming with all sorts of bars (aperitif, snack, and coffee bars), ice cream parlours, pastry shops, pizzerias and typical Italian trattorie, restaurants of all sorts (including chinese, sushi, arab and other various ethnic ones), and entertainment clubs….resulting in a unique movida.
Situated very near to us are some of the main theatres, with special mention, the Carlo Felice Opera Theatre, visibile from our windows. We also have a view on some other buildings of importance and beauty like the Palazzo Ducale(Doge’s Palace), the Expo and the old port,(within short walking distance), the main shopping streets like Via Roma, Galleria Mazzini and Via XX Settembre, the lovely historical streets like via Garibaldi, and monuments like the house of Columbus, the old Churches, among which San Lorenzos’ Cathedral, (a short walk away), and the Church del Gesu’, (all located in the old centre).
The buildings foundations and first floors, in which the apartment is located, dates back to the middle ages while the top floors date back to the early 800’s. The actual apartment has been designed and restored by our mother, who is an architect.

-We have chosen not to offer a “proper”breakfast due to the wide variety of cafes and breakfast nooks in the area. We do however have an espresso coffee machine, which makes an excellent coffee, located in the living room. There is also a small electric kettle with the necessary supplies to prepare a cup of tea, camomile, or instant coffee directly in the bedroom.
-The room has independent climate control heating and a ceiling fan.
- Foreign guests are asked to send a photo of their identity card or passport to this e-mail address: (EMAIL HIDDEN) This request is motivate by the fact that in Italy there is a new antiterrorism law which forces hosts to communicate to the local police the presence of every foreign guest staying in their house; if hosts don't do the communication they get fined.
- Also smokers can be welcome in our home if they smoke exclusively on the terrace, in respect of our non-smoking guests
- Guests are asked to take out the rubbish when the bags in their room or in their bathroom are full.
