Part of a centuries-old palazzo, this small, potentially charming first and second floor apartment of approximately 60 sq mtrs is located in the "Ponte" district of Arpino's historic town centre, only a minute's walk from the main piazza. . The palazzo is situated on the Via Aquila Romana (translated as the Street of the Roman Eagle), the medieval road built on the site of the old Roman road that 2000 years ago led from Arpino down through the valley to Rome.
With some lovely old architectural features intact, including antique tiled floors and lovely details on the antique wooden doors, this apartment would make an excellent 'pied-à-terre', only 90 minutes form Rome and the airports of both Rome and Naples.
A separate street entrance opens into an entrance hall leading to a staircase to the upper floor, where there is a bedroom, sitting room and a kitchen/dining room, and also a small bathroom. (The bathroom could easily be expanded to include unused space beside the stairs).
While needing some modernisation and redecoration, Appartamento Tritello will provide a characteristically historic home set in a medieval street, only a moment's walk from Arpino's main piazza, thus combining tranquillity with immediate access to cafés, bars, shops and services. The property enjoys excellent road access and there is adjacent free public car parking.

ARPINO AND THE CIOCIARIA
Arpino is one of the major medieval hilltop towns in the area of Italy called the Ciociaria, the name given to the fertile land that lies south of Rome but north of Naples, situated inland in the hills in the heart of Italy.
The Ciociaria region is within easy reach of both Rome and Naples and their respective airports. A day's shopping in Rome is a common pastime, while an even shorter drive brings you to the charming beaches south of Rome. Alternatively, drive east, and the mountains of the Abruzzo National Park await with horse trekking in the magnificent beech forests, and sparkling mountain lakes and rivers where you can swim in the heat of the summer. And at the other extreme of temperature, although Arpino itself is temperate, less than an hour's drive brings you to the winter ski slopes.
Often overlooked, both by tourists and by those foreigners in search of an Italian home, in favour of the more publicized regions of Tuscany and Umbria, the Ciociaria remains largely an unspoilt gem with beautiful scenery and medieval hilltop towns. A home or second home in the Ciociaria, in the hilltop towns of Arpino, Veroli, Alatri or in the rolling countryside that surrounds them, will afford you a setting where over two thousand years of history combine with an idyllic rural Italian lifestyle, where you can still discover the 'real' Italy and take time out from the busy crowds of the larger tourist cities, while being less than ninety minutes journey from central Rome or either of Rome's two airports.
