We will have another special offer soon. All roads lead to Rome and you might want to go back time and time again.

The period before Lent is celebrated as Carnevale, which means 'farewell meat' in Latin. At Carnevale time Roman bakers sell special 'frappe' (fried puff pastry cakes) which are delicious.

The streets are full of children in costumes parading with their proud parents, Via Cola di Rienzo is one of the main streets of Prati.

Nearby there are many shops,Theatres, Cinemas, Tennis courts, Pizzerias, Restaurants and Museums.

This area of Rome's main attraction is St. Peters, the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chappel, but food is what draws the Romans to Prati.

The apartment is about 60 sqm, on the top floor of a 1920's building. There is a lift and a full time caretaker, it has been fully renovated and includes all needed appliances. The apartment is very bright with stunning views. It has a modern and very spacious living room with a sofa bed that can comfortably sleep two, also a single bed futon.

The bedroom comes complete with a large cupboard with a large size double bed. High standard bathroom with new large shower and hair-dryer. The apartment is beautifully furnished with antique furniture and paintings and has just been redecoreted.

Bedroom and living room both have air conditioning. There is also central heating in all rooms, so that you can be comfortable if it is winter or summer.

The kitchen is completely equipped with a microwave, 4 burner gas range with oven, toaster, kettle, fridge, plus all the necessary cooking utensils.

A washing machine, vacuum cleaner, flat iron and ironing board and hair dryer complete the list of amenities.

Our gust are not permitted to use the adjacent outdoor terrace without us as it is a condominium terrace.

The apartment is in walking distance form the sites of Rome- Piazza Navona- Piazza di Spagna- The Vatican Museum with the Sistine Chapel- Castel St. Angelo, the former tomb of Emperor Hadrian converted by the Popes as their fortress and where Tosca through herself in the river Tiber.

The narrow little roads around St. Peter's, the Borgo area, have a different feel and you can sense the hum of everyday life. Ordinary people live here and go about their daily business like their fellow Romans, who breath less holy air, away from the magnificence of the Vatican. Our electrician is the Pope's electrician.

Prati is a great shopping area for shoes, handbags and clothes in all price ranges and there are many tempting profumerie selling cosmetics and perfumes. A Saturday morning spent window-shopping in Via Cola di Rienzo you are ready for a more self-indulgence and pleasure in the fabulous food stores.

The gastronomia Franchi is right next to the Alladin's cave that is Castroni. Both of this food stores are irresistible. Franchi has a great salumeria counter piled high with every form of temptation, with cheeses from Italy, France, and Great Britten and many different hams and salamis. Deeper into store are prepared dishes like stuffed tomatoes and splendid looking shelled prawns, and Rome's favourite fried nibbles, which are prepared in batches. There is a wonderful selection of wines and many people come here for a gastronomic snack. Castroni sells groceries from all over the world. Across the road from Castroni there is a covered food market selling fish, meat, fruit and vegetable and not too far away, in Via Germanico, there is the restaurant Girarrosto which serves the best beef in Rome. There are many local pubs, pizzerias, restaurants and all the conveniences of modern living, such as beauty parlours, pharmacies, groceries, coffee shops, laundry shops, internet points , gelaterie (Ice Cream), Shoe Repair, Flower Shops, and the best mini market, just in the next building from ours.

Car: It is not necessary but a garage nearby can be contacted. Rome is a penny-pincher's paradise. Many of the top sights are public spaces, and many sublime churches are free to enter. You can easily walk to most places. Stick to Pizza and Pasta and have your coffee standing at the bar counter. Most of what you would like to see is very close to the apartment.

Vaticano and Prati: Although this area is dominated by the dome of St. Peter's, and the attractions of the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel, food is what draws Romans to Prati. Two of the city's best food stores, Castroni and Franchi, on the main shopping street via Cola di Rienzo, are where Romans from all over the city stock up on prosciutto, cheese, salame and olive oil. In this distric you can see a great range of Historical ages and architectural styles as you move away from the Roman Empire in the historic centre. Before Italy was unified the neighbourhood called Prati was just open fields and meadows (prati), but in 1880 careful planning and constructin led to the ordered grid of streets that you see today.

The dome of St. Peter's acts as a homing beacon when exploring the city. The other main landmark is Castel St. Angelo, started life in AD139 as Hadrian's mausoleum. In its time it has been a palace, a stronghold and a prison. The Castle gets its name from the angel.

About Clara Censon

I was born in the apartment below ours. Our daughter lives in the other apartment opposite and it is very convenient to have my space yet so near my dear family as I am married to a wonderful English man and live a lot of the time in the UK. We have a daughter and two sons and 6 grandchildren.My father bought the apartments in 1920 and left them to the family in his will.

I am glad to have been so lucky to have my place in my city, it makes me feel I am still a Roman.

Great location and apartment

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for 2 weeks. It is a 10 minute walk to the front door of St. Peter's Cathedral, which is great because we could keep going over in the evenings to enjoy the ambiance. Great restaurants within a block, and many more within a few blocks. Excellent grocery store one block away. Apartment is spacious and well-appointed. Kitchen small but functional. Large shower. Great views from the windows. We hope to return.

Lovely home filled with original art and thoughtful small touches

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this lovely home for ten days and loved the location, and the fact that the owners have filled it with beautiful art and other thoughtful amenities. Rome is a busy and loud place, and this apartment was very quiet and pleasantly cool during the peak of summer. The other residents of the building were also friendly and courteous to our family, which we appreciated. The owner's daughter greeted us warmly, and she and her family made sure our questions were answered and provided us with many ideas for our time spent in Rome. The sitting room proved to be a great hideaway for our 14 year old daughter, and she reported that her rollaway bed (also known as "the pouf") was just perfect. It fit right into a corner and did not interfere with everyone's ability to use the rest of the sitting room. If we come back to Rome, we will stay here again.

Zentral, ruhig und geschmackvoll eingerichtet

  • 4 of 5
Das Appartement liegt zentral und doch ruhig, ist geschmackvoll und gemütlich eingerichtet. Geschäfte und Restaurants mit Empfehlungen der Vermieter findet man in unmittelbarer Nähe. Funktionierendes Wlan bietet aktuelle Informationen zu Rom, über das zu erwartende Wetter und die vielfältigen Attraktionen der Stadt. Mit der freundlichen Tochter der Vermieterin Franzesca ein Stockwerk tiefer und einem Portier im Treppenhaus fühlt man sich gut aufgehoben. Ein Appartement zum Wiederkommen.

Comfort and convenience

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment. The bed was comfortable and the apartment was quiet ensuring a restful sleep. The grocery store in the next building meant that we had access to picnic supplies and the nearby restaurants were excellent and reasonable. The owner's daughter and the concierge were friendly and helpful. The view of Rome from the picture window at sunrise And sunset was a special treat. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends.

The main attraction is St. Peter, the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chappel, but food is what draws the Romans to Prati. Rome is a penny-pincher's paradise. Many of the top sites are public spaces, and many sublime churches are free to enter. You can easily walk to most places. Stick to Pizza ans Pasta and have your coffee standing at the bar counter.
