About our home

Our apartment is located in Ariccia, a quiet district 25km from Rome. The city is very pretty: shops, crafts and many typical restaurants. we renovated the apartment only 2 years ago, when we came to live here. Our neighbors are nice and welcoming. 
A perfect location to visit the city of Castelli Romani (10' to the old bridge or the Ariccia by walk, Castelgandolfo, Genzano or Frascati). Our home is near the bus stop or 10 m from the train station to Rome. 
Perfect for children too, there are very nice playgrounds nearly! 
The apartment consists of a beautiful living room, very bright, an equipped kitchen (we love to cook and eat!), the master bedroom, our daughter's bedroom (full of toys!), the bathroom with shower and laundry. Wifi and TV avaible.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Ariccia stands on a rock of volcanic origin 18 miles south of Rome.
Its origins go back several centuries before Christ. In this area lay a famous temple dedicated to the goddess Diana, among the most important sanctuaries of the area. Ariccia was the head of the federazione latina, a population from central Italy, united with the purpose of defending themselves from the attacks of stronger enemies. Ariccia was defeated by Rome only in the IV century BC and soon many of the chief men of the City built their country villas in the area. During the following ages the village became property of several patrician families and finally came to its splendor in the second half of the seventeenth century, under Pope Alexander VII of the Chigi family. His nephew Agostino soon became lord of the village and a great number of artists were hired to work on the “new look” of the Chigi residence. Among them was Bernini, who designed Piazza di Corte as it is now, with the new facade of the Palace facing the Church of the Assunta between symmetrical buildings. In front of them are two fountains shaped with the symbols of the family. All in a perfect balance as if on a theater stage.
In 1854 Pope Pio XI commissioned the building a bridge to create a direct link between Ariccia and Albano. This construction was severely damaged during the bombing in World War II and was entirely rebuilt in 1947. It is now called PonteMonumentale.

It is part of a regional park called Regional Park of the Castelli Romani, literally Roman Castels.
This is the area where all romans, from roman times until nowadays used to build their villas, a place where they could escape the heat of Rome during hot summers and have a nice breeze from the sea.
