Rome Centro, Italy - Rome, Home of Babuino
The part of the city we call Rome Centro encompasses the historic center of the city and the area immediately around it, within the ancient city walls, on the east side of the Tiber. It is a large area that encompasses most of Rome’s most famous sites: the Spanish Steps and Borghese Gardens to the north, the Termini train station to the east and the Coloseum and Forum to the south. This area includes favorite sites like the Trevi Fountain, the Piazza Navona, the Pantheon and Campo dei Fiori. The Rome Centro area is big and distances to some major sites are easy to underestimate, but the area is served by an intricate web of bus and subway routes. Excellent transportation makes it easy move around in this area.

An Explanation of the Ratings: The first column of figures is the highest score possible in each category. The column on the far right is the score for this particular apartment in this category. For this set of ratings, we have asked every Untour staff person who has seen the apartment to rate the individual features. Many of these staff people have been in a position to hear reports (good and bad) from customers over the years, so they offer a particularly well-informed perspective. Nevertheless, customer ratings will be included in the overall ratings as soon as possible.
Please keep in mind that tastes vary. These ratings give an overall sense of how most people feel about a factor; you are in the best position to know if your tastes and requirements are likely to be in the mainstream of opinion or if you have particular needs. If you have any questions about the meaning of any of the factors rated, or about this apartment, please call our office toll-free at 1-999-868-6871. You can nearly always talk directly with someone who has personally seen the accommodation.
