The rooms to rent on Via Altavilla Irpina are wonderful. The only common areas are the bathroom—where you'll find a washing machine—and kitchen, both spacious areas. The kitchen comes fully equipped with cutlery, dishes and everything you need to fix yourself a meal. There are gas burners and a 3-seat table where you can eat and chat with flatmates. One of the nice things about this kitchen is plenty of cupboard space, as well as a small enclosed balcony with windows you can open up for a little fresh air.
Centocelle is a residential part of Rome, but it’s quaint, quiet, and off-the-beaten track. Still, the subway stops just a 2-minute walk from your door, and you can be in downtown Rome in 20-30 minutes. There is a small grocery store right outside your door, a shopping mall around the corner, and the gorgeous Villa Gordiani Park is just a 1-minute walk away. If you like to eat out, there is a nearby café and pizzeria, and you might want to check out Mazzo. It’s a 14-minutes walk, but the New York Times lists it as a place for great Italian cuisine.
Bedroom 2 is a very spacious room with central heating, AC, and a great balcony overlooking the street with a couple of chairs where you can relax and enjoy the fresh air. It is furnished with twin beds, a huge wardrobe, two chests of drawers, a large table that you can use as a desk, and even a sofa bed.

It’s an ancient area. It’s a hotspot for youth. It’s Centocelle.
Centocelle was first settled by the Romans. They used it as a military base outside the city centre.
Those days are long gone. And so is the military mindset. The modern generation enjoys a great social life, excellent good, and a lot more peace.
Modernity and antiquity – the best of Rome is here, off the beaten path, in Centocelle.
Come see for yourself.
What can I do here?
As we speak, Centocelle is becoming more and more famous for its food. Come here to sample creative Roman cuisine free from the city-centre pricetag.
So grab a drink, settle in for an aperitivo (aperitif) at L’OmbraLonga. It’s not a fancy place, though. (It might be best described as unsophisticated.) But it serves quality food at low prices. And in the end, isn’t that what’s important?
Mazzo is more expensive. But it also comes recommended by the New York Times. The chefs here take traditional Roman cuisine and add a creative twist.
Afterwards (if you’re not too full), walk it off around the neighbourhood. Admire the tree-lined avenues. Enjoy the tranquil vibe.
This truly is one of Rome’s most laid-back areas.
‘Centocelle’ means ‘One Hundred Rooms’. Its name comes from its original purpose: to house the Roman military and their weapons. Creative.
