Housing in Rome

I was hoping that my entering a plea on here for housing in Rome from 4 June - 29 July would bring some positive results. I am in desperate need of finding a place soon so that I can get my airline tickets at a reasonable rate. If any of the readers have any connections in Rome for someone who would be willing to put up with someone who would be low level care, that would be splendid. I would be willing to offer something for the trouble but as a PhD student with a large family of six children, I do not have a lot that I can afford. I will get all of my meals and transportation sorted if I could find a willing soul to put me up for this time while I study Latin. If you know of someone, please contact me to let me know. Thanks in advance!

Another option is my raising of the funds to go. I have searched the Internet and found that I can rent a room for about 700 Euros per month. So, if you know anyone interested in supporting me in going, I would also be grateful for that. In the end, this endeavour is for the good of the whole Church as I go to learn Latin to the degree that I will be able to translate theological material that is yet to be translated during my future studies once I finish my acamdemic work. Thank you for your prayers nonetheless.

Fr Steele, I have emailed you the email address of a well-contected friend of mine in Rome. He might be able to point you in the right direction for a cheap room. Good luck!

How long do you need to stay? If you will be alone or with only one or two others, and you are staying for a period between a few days and, say, six weeks, I would recommend the Villa Bassi.

Villa Bassi, Via G. Carini, 24 00152 Rome; Tel. 011-39-06-581 5329; Fax: 011-39-06-581 5333

Their website seems to be down at the moment, which is unfortunate, but you can make reservations through it. Try their fax number and see if they will send you info.

The Villa Bassi is what I call "a youth hostel for adults." Spartan, but clean and comfortable, in a nice neighborhood, well connected to the rest of the city by bus and not too far from the Vatican (it's up on the Janiculum, overlooking Trastevere), and very close to the American Academy. It is, by Rome standards, quite cheap, about the cost of a cheap US motel.

If you want more information, send me an e-mail reminder (idrathernotsay123@hotmail.com) and I'll look over the materials I have in my office. I have stayed there many times, both alone and with a group of students. If you're willing to live in Rome without air conditioning, you can't do better for the money.

My friend in Rome says he would be happy to help out in finding a place, if IRNS's lead doesn't work out. Email him if interested (and let me know if you didn't receive his email address). Good luck, sir!

    O God, most glorious, most bountiful, accept, we humbly beseech thee, our praises and thanksgivings for thy holy Catholic Church, the mother of us all who bear the name of Christ; for the faith which it hath conveyed in safety to our time, and the mercies by which it hath enlarged and comforted the souls of men; for the virtues which it hath established upon earth, and the holy lives by which it glorifieth both the world and thee; to whom, O blessed Trinity (+), be ascribed all honour, might, majesty and dominion, now and for ever. Amen.
    --Bishop Lancelot Andrewes
