My house! My house is right near the Spanish Steps. It is a quiet apartment with a large terrace. It is a two bedroom apartment with one bathroom and four people can sleep in it. For $49.00 a month this apartment is a perfect place for me to stay.
Why the Spanish Steps? The Spanish Steps is a safe environment. It is also a very popular place for tourists to stay. The apartment is located in the best and fanciest part of the center of Rome, 5 minutes walking distance from Rome's nicest shops. The central Spanish Steps Metro station is also at five minutes walking distance. There is a small supermarket in Via Vittoria, four blocks away from the apartment. A few blocks away from the apartment you will find Villa Borghese, a large, green historic park scattered with ancient statues and century old trees. Therefore, this apartment seems like the ideal place for me to live on my trip to Rome.
