I love my Roman apartment. I am 99.9% ready to sign another year lease tomorrow.
Fun tip that I heard recently:
If you are trying to select an apartment in Rome, make sure it is on the fourth floor or above. That way the ladri (thieves) can’t get in.
Oh, but also: make sure your Rome apartment is on the seventh floor or below.
Apparently, Italian fire truck hoses can’t reach above the seventh floor.
