R'HOME SWEET R'HOME: YOUR FABULOUS APT 100 STEPS FROM ST. PETER'S SQUARE

Prati (Vatican area) Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

R'HOME SWEET R'HOME: Stay in a fabulous apartment in one of Rome’s oldest neighborhoods, a few steps from St. Peter’s Basilica!

This accommodation combines the best that Rome has to offer: a recently renovated, light and comfortable apartment located in one of the city’s most historic quarters. The neighborhood, Rione Borgo, has cobblestone streets, artisans' workshops, neighborhood cafés and local trattorie.

It is within walking distance of the city’s major attractions, including the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, Castel Sant’Angelo, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain and the Piazza Campo de’ Fiori.

This ground-floor apartment is typical of this ancient district of Rome and it is elegantly furnished with modern fixtures. It has its own entry-way, a spacious living room with chimney (including a twin-size sofa bed and an ottoman bed), a kitchenette, a well-appointed bathroom and a master bedroom with original, Renaissance-era brick work.

The thick, Renaissance-era masonry provides cool relief from the summer heat.

Additional details: fully fitted kitchen with fridge, microwave oven and kettle; bathroom with bath tub/shower, dryer; TV; washing machine; boiler for independent heating; crib and high chair for younger children; Internet Wi-Fi; DVD reader and Video Library of 30 movies in English.

The apartment is easily accessible with public transportation, including tram, subway and bus. There are several nearby taxi stands and bicycles and scooters are available for rent. The nearby San Pietro train station has regular service to the Fiumicino airport and to the beach. There is even a taxi-boat service along the Tiber.

Guided tours available on request.

We would be happy to answer any other questions you might have.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2010

You are inside the history! The building where the apartment is located was built a few years after the discovery of America. Some walls of the house were built using 2000 years old Roman amphorae! All the walls of the apartment are been fully restored and the amphorae are still clearly visible.

This is a fantastic apartment only a stone's throw away from St Peter's Basilica and the best gelato shop in Rome. Alessandro and his wife are the most accommodating and amiable hosts. Should you need anything at all they are more than eager to help and if you are fond of Roman history and culture, look no further, you have found your perfect getaway in the Eternal City!

I cannot say enough about our stay in this lovely apartment. It was immaculate, lovingly kept and full of wonderful details. The architecture was fascinating--hard to believe, with all the modern amenities, that the bedroom wall's brick's are 1000 years old! The apartment is quiet and on the ground floor, which was perfect for my mother, who is older. It is literally a 5 minute walk down charming streets to St Peter's Cathedral and the Vatican Museum. At the end of the street in the opposite direction, is a lovely street lined with restaurants and outdoor seating. But the best part of all is that you get to meet the owners, Alessandro and Roberta. For months before my arrival, Roberta helped me plan this "vacation of a lifetime" for my mother. She always emailed me back immediately and spend a good deal of her personal time helping arrange side trips. Alessandro is warm and charming. They are both kind and welcoming, in the true Roman spirit. Alessandro is a history buff, and has written a comprehensive guide to sights in Rome---not just the most famous ones, but the interesting ones that only a native would know about.
From the fresh flowers on the table to the warmth of the owners, this apartment contributed greatly to us truly having a vacation of a lifetime with memories "Mamma Serafina" and I will treasure forever!

Excellent flat steps from the Vatican. Our most outstanding VRBO experience to date!

We chose to rent this flat based on its excellent reviews. All very well deserved! The flat itself is fantastic. We loved its history and its location steps from St Peter's and close to a Metro (though we chose to walk everywhere as it was so easy and we needed to keep making room for more food and gelato!). It was clean and comfortable (excellent bed) and had a screen on the bedroom window.... a rarity in Italy and saved us from mosquito bites. The flat was very well stocked (tea, coffee, salt, sugar, laundry soap, paper towels etc - we did not have almost any of this in the flat we'd left in Venice) Alex and Roberta understand what's needed while on holiday. Plus the fridge was filled with water and a container of juice and breakfast snack cakes to get us going. The chocolates on the pillow were a lovely touch. The bathroom was immaculate. The towels were lush and there was plenty of hot water. We used the washer as well. Alex and Roberta were outstanding to deal with. Prompt in their replies. Full of information and help as required. And happy to go above and beyond to help. We were met at the train by Alex and delivered to the flat. Roberta had sent us a photo of the family which helped us recognize Alex. Alex is a Roman history buff and provided interesting Roman history for us to read that he has written. Plus restaurant and shop recommendations. The grocery shop, Despar, is very nearby and served us well. We enjoyed strolling along Borgo Pio. And we agree with Alex that Hedera is the best gelato in Rome. We really enjoyed our meal at Mama ristobistrot from his list. Alex also offered to arrange a car for us to get to the airport which was only 40€. I mistakenly left my jacket in the flat which Alex has mailed to me. My husband and I have rented many VRBO flats and have had mostly good experiences but this Roman flat is now the best and will be hard to beat. Thank you Alex and Roberta. Hope to get back to Rome again for another stay.

Do Not Look Overlook This Home!!!

It is hard to sum up everything "Great" about this place. But I'll try... If you are looking to spend your time at the Vatican and St. Peter's square... You are there. It is literally a 2 minute walk, only if you can avoid buying Gelato on the way. In the evenings, dinner is very easy, affordable and a quick walk to Borgo Pio, which is only about a 30 second walk. You can launder at the apartment or give your laundry to a service which is only a two minute walk. We did both. Internet Wifi is good and the apartment cool in the summer months. Alessandro, Roberta and the children were right there if we needed them with excellent English. We could journal about this place forever! Wrap your Rome vacation around this VRBO property and you will not regret!!!

Bel appartement qui est décoré avec goût et très bien situé. Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques, accueillants, attentionnés et toujours disponibles. Tout est accessibles à pied. Les suggestions de Allessandro sont appréciés et justes. Si vous aimez la viande, allez chez ``Maxelà``! C' est un ``must``!
Très bonne pizza chez ``Gusto``! près de la piazza Ogusto Imperatore. Soirées mémorables dans le quartier Centro Storico avec ses restaurants, cafés et terrasses. Point de vue panoramique dans le quartier Villa Borghese qui est superbe et aussi un point de vue époustouflant Au centre du Piazzale Garibaldi accompagné d'un bon verre de vin! Un chauffeur est à votre disposition pour 42 Euros de l'aéroport à l'appartement. Pour les amateurs de vins, allez au Anoteca al parlamento Achilli situé au 15 Via Del Prefetti! Vous découvrirez plus de 20 000 bouteilles variant entre 10 et 33 000 Euros!!. Alessandro saura vous guider, Bref, une semaine mémorable!!! Encore une fois ``merci`` Alessandro!
