“After some days at Alberto & Alessandro's apartment, we can only say is that it could not have been a better experience. It was not a simultaneous exchange, so Carla, a friend of Ale & Albert, came to open the apartment for us and shows us around. The apartment have an exquisite taste, is comfortable and feels like home. Details that make everything nicer and feel welcome were all around: an incredible Rome guide made by our host, tickets for public transportation in Rome, and amenities in the bathroom as in a top hotel. The neighborhood has really bohemia and "real" touch, something we enjoy a lot. Places they recommended Pizzeria Formula 1 or the wineshop were just great. The flat is really well located. We got out in the airport to the train station, took the Leonardo train express, and 30 minutes alters we arrived in Termini (last and only stop of the train). From there, 10 minutes walking and we were home! Very practical for a family like mine, traveling with our little baby :-) And walking, we got to the coliseum, la fontana di trevi and Piazza Navona in about 40 minutes! Two extra important things: 1 - My sister came from Argentina to spend new years eve. And we all stayed in the apartment thanks con Alessandro & Alberto Hospitality. 2 - We got our son sick, and everybody (specially Carla) were extremely helpful. So, needless to say, we are thankful for Alberto and Alessandro kindness and early much recommend you to exchange homes with them! Alfredo, Kerstin, and León :-)”

Where is it?
San Lorenzo is a district (quartiere) in Rome.
It occupies roughly the two sides of the early stretch of Via Tiburtina, starting from Termini railway station and ending at the Verano area. The latter includes the ancient basilica of San Lorenzo fuori le Mura, which the district takes its name from.
Originally a working-class neighborhood (its inhabitants were mostly workers of the Peroni brewery and the freight yard), it has been a popular, left-oriented area. During World War II San Lorenzo was heavily bombed by Allied planes (on 1943-07-19); the only massive bombing of Rome during the war (though not the only air raid on the city), it aimed at disrupting the railway communication pivoting on the nearby huge freight yard; however, it caused also extensive damage to the buildings of the district (including the Policlinico Umberto I and the basilica itself) and killing some 1,500 people.
Maria Montessori's first 3-6 age program was started in San Lorenzo in 1907.
Today San Lorenzo, due to the vicinity of the La Sapienza University, is increasingly assuming the character of a student and young artist district. Every evening, hundreds of young people descend on the area. Pizzerias, boutiques and other modern places are subsequently replacing the old popular workshops and small markets.
