The “Hidden Lemon Tree” is in Monteverde, a beautiful and quiet residential area that overlooks Trastevere on one side and St. Peter on the other side. Monteverde means “Green Mountain” and is named after the hill where the district is located on.
Three are the parks which characterize it:
the famous Villa Doria Pamphili, being Rome’s largest park, in which you can enjoy walking among some of Rome’s ancient and medieval past;
the historical Janiculum Hill (Colle del Gianicolo). It is famous for being one of the most charming corners of Rome -- a balcony with breath-taking views over the expanse of churches, piazzas, and monuments below, with the meandering Tiber taking centre stage. Towards the east, the hill descends to another famous and ancient Roman quarter: Trastevere.
Villa Sciarra is a park located between the neighbourhoods of Trastevere, Gianicolo and Monteverde Vecchio. The history of the Villa begins in an era prior to the roman era, where in that area it was located a sanctuary dedicated to the nymph Furrina. Later, on this area, there were located the “Orti di Cesare”, from Monteverde to Trastevere.
The subjects and the style of the fountains and statues of Villa Sciarra are quite different from those which typically decorate the other Villas of Rome; they were placed in order to create some cosy corners, rather than being arranged in a structured layout.
The street where the room for rent is located is well connected with the public transport and so in few minutes you can reach the historical centre and the most important monuments of the City.
