Rome - Apartment centrally located
We live in "Delle Vittorie" district, one of the most pleasant neighbourhood in Rome, a fine example of early 20th century town-planning. It is central (near St. Peter's, Vatican Museums, Castel S. Angelo) but peaceful, with large tree-lined streets. The area is close to the Tevere river, near the Foro Italico (where annual tennis, football, aquatics tournament are held), the roman Ponte Milvio, the Renzo Piano's Auditorium "Parco della Musica" and the latest Zaha Hadid's MAXXI contemporary art museum. The area is well served with public transports (bus, taxi station, metro-stop "Lepanto") and all kinds of shops, department stores, restaurants and cafes, cinemas and theatres. All the famous sights are within easy reach. On the river banks you can find swimming pools and tennis courts in a pleasant surroundings.
Our house is an apartment on the 2nd floor of a six storey building, with elevator and door-keeper. It has been completely remodeled when we bought the house in the 90's. The apartment is quiet and luminous, facing on one side the street and on the other, with a long narrow balcony, an inner courtyard. The living room is spacious with an home theater entertainment system. The kitchen is standarly furnished. The bedrooms are three (sleep six) with queen size bed. There are two full bathrooms with shower. There is also a small studio near the entrance with pc, free internet connection and WiFi. All the rooms in the house (centrally heated during the winter) have ceiling fans.
If you wish to make a car exchange, we are willing to leave our Honda-Jazz (2005).
Our family includes Enrico (71) architect, Giovanna (71) learning disabilities therapist. Our sons Tommaso (41) and Pietro (37), both architects, no longer live with us and work respectively in Paris and in Marseille. We are no-smokers and have no pets.
We are retired, but still work as private practicioners. We'd like to have a lenghty vacation (3/4 weeks) avoiding when possible the more crowded summer months (July, August), and Christmas time. We are also interested in short exchanges with european cities throughout the year and always willing to come to Paris, where we come to visit our niece Mia (3 years old) or Marseille. We are not interested in 2nd home exchanges and are open to all destinations. We may be traveling with some friends.

We are just retired but still working part-time as self-employed professionals. Our two sons, both architects works abroad, one steadily in Paris, the other presently in Marseille. We love the spirit of Intervac and are experienced “swappers” since 1990. We know how to take care of a home which is kindly lent to us and we love to make our guests feel at home and enjoy their stay. We love the planning of the exchange, and the chance of being not just a tourist. We often travel with some friends, or are joined by our sons, but we also like to go and visit new places just the two of us!
Both Enrico and I enjoy the solitude… “far from the madding crowd”. Between our highlights in our traveling experience we place the Murzuk desert (Libia) a small island in Kolovesi NtP (Finland), the Orkney Islands (GB), the Arizona & Utah Canyons and the Yellowstone Nt.Park, the Rocky Mountains and the Pacific Rim Nt.Park (Vancouver Island), the Westfjords (Iceland).
