Please share something about the history of your present bed and breakfast.
Our passion for traveling drove us to open Maranto Bed and Breakfast. The curiosity towards people living in other countries with different cultures has always pushed us to travel and to feel ourselves foreign in far way lands.
Now it's our turn, to translate our travel experience, to meet the requirements, the curiosity and the pleasures that you'll find taking a trip out of your places of origin but in our hometown. I have always wondered how a traveler feels in front of the infinite beauty of Rome. Rome offers an immense artistic and cultural heritage and we, if you allow us, can offer you a serene and comfortable place from which you can easily reach all places of interest. We will unveil you some tricks to get in contact with the more intimate Rome. Our B&B will makes you feel at home.
