Rome Apartment - where to stay away from the center?

Jump to last reply

My husband will have his sabbatical this fall and we'll be spending four weeks in Rome with our 15 month old daughter. We're trying to find an apartment in a location that would provide for the following:

- nice walks & parks
- good restaurants/trattoria
- good coffee
- happy hours outdoors
- people watching
- markets & shops
- good grocery store
- good vibe

We have both been to Rome previously, so don't need to be right in the center, but our parents will be coming over for a few days and would like something with easy access to the center either via bus, tram or metro.

I've looked in many places and it seems like Prati, Flaminio or Monti would be good options, but hard to get a feel for an area on the web. We live in Chicago and enjoy walking through the neighborhoods and shopping locally. Hoping for a similar experience in Rome. Enjoy the sites, but want to stay away from souvenir shops and restaurants with menu pictures, if you get my drift.

Can anyone offer their opinion on any of these locations or perhaps some others we may have overlooked?
