## Apartment description
This spacious 2-bedroom apartment is available to rent on Via Portuense. The apartment is in a modern building, with a completely furnished, contemporary interior. The open-plan kitchen and living area is very bright and spacious, and comes with all the modern appliances. There are 2 bathrooms too, 1 of which is en-suite for the master bedroom. Each are new and spotless, and have shower cubicles.
A residential area in the south west of the city, Portuense, although well served by bus, is not connected to the centre by Metro. This makes it a much more peaceful, tourist-free area than much of Rome. If a more relaxed and peaceful pace of life is your speed, then this is the place for you. There's plenty of useful nearby shopping, and great local restaurants nearby.

## Neighborhood description
You’re here, the tourists are not
Do you want to live as the Romans do?
Then welcome to Portuense: a modest, residential area to the south-west of the city centre.
This is a down-to-earth district. You’ll really feel like a local, because you will be one.
Centro Storico is a bus ride away. Travel there to see the sites, then retreat to your home in the heartland of a truly Roman neighbourhood.
All the beauty of Rome. None of the tourists. Bliss.
**What can I do here?**
Mingle with the locals in the bars, cafés, and restaurants. Bask in the warm glow of knowing there are no tourists.
There are lots of family-owned businesses here. Some are as old as the landmarks in historic Rome (well, almost).
There are plenty of places to shop in Portuense. Just take a quick walk up to the northern part of the district to see what we mean.
Hungry? Have a bite to eat at MeAT, on Via Portuense. This adorable local favourite serves up traditional Roman dishes with a modern twist. We hear they even have an English-language menu.
During the Nazi occupation of Rome, Portuense was a major bastion of resistance. Defiant!
