Home on a hill

The JFRC's multi-level, residential campus, which spans five acres in the upper Balduina district of Monte Mario, Rome's highest hill.  The neighborhood is home to diplomats, senators, judges, and other distinguished families.  By living on a campus in the center of a great neighborhood, you will have everything you need.

The nearest bus stop is only two blocks away, providing a short, 15-minute ride to Vatican City or an easy, 30 minute trip to downtown.  Within walking distance are grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, bakeries, a salon, a convenience store, a post office, banks and ATMs, and other small businesses.  Map of Balduina District.
