LOCATION

The Vatican Museums are indisputably one of the finest collections of art in the world. Over the centuries, Papal patrons have commissioned renowned works such as the magnificent frescoes of Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel, and those by Raphael in his stanze. The museums also host some of the most important sculptures from the ancient world. You will have the opportunity to see these works as they were originally viewed and contemplated by the Popes who created the Museums. A chance to have this astounding collection to yourself just a few steps away from home.

AMENITIES

The area offers a view of a everyday Rome filled with real Romans doing life. The popular shopping strip of Via Cola di Rienzo offers good amentias as well as an alternative to the high end fare found in say the via Condotti zone. The daily market at Piazza dell'Unita is charming and the prices are very good. A visit must be paid to Castroni with its wide range of local and international foodstuffs. There are quite a lot of groceries and supermarkets. In the area you can find restaurants of any kind and price. As for pizzerie we are fond of Gabriele and his 'Pizzarium' (via della Meloria 43). By the way we are not the only one who like Gabriele and his product as the great Ferran Adria' do the same.

Nice appartment, very well located!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Rome. The appartment was nice, we enjoyed having our breakfast on the balcony in the morning. Close proximity to the metro, grocery stores and restaurants. Easy access to the sites, walking distance to the Vatican and metro for the rest. The owners were very accomodating. We strongly recommend this appartment.

Comfortable apartment in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this comfortable apartment near the Vatican. It is very nicely sized and comfortable for 2 people. It could accommodate more on a sofa sleeper, but then it would become a little more cramped. The ability to do our laundry at the apartment allowed us the convenience of packing more lightly for our 2 weeks in Italy. The kitchen is sufficient for cooking just about anything. It was quite hot while we were in Rome, but the apartment's two air conditioners kept us cool. In fact, we did not bother to use the one in the main living area since were were out and about most days. We simply closed the bedroom door at night and turned on the bedroom air conditioner. It kept us very cool and we slept like babies.

The apartment is about 0.6 miles (1 km) from the Vatican museums and the entrance to St. Peter's Basilica is about a 1 mile walk. There is a metro station just around the corner from the apartment that will get you just about anywhere else you need to go, including the ancient sites and the train station.

Mauro was an excellent host. He arranged for a car service to pick us up at the airport and took us for a brief walk around the neighborhood when we arrived to show us some favorite restaurants and the grocery stores. He even took us for a site-seeing drive one night.

Overall, I thought the apartment was a great value. I'd definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone visiting Rome for business or pleasure.

Perfect! A very charming, well designed and furnished apartment, providing a gateway to Rome!

  • 5 of 5

We had our best introduction to Rome imaginable, thanks to Mauro and Carmen and their wonderful apartment!

We are an airline family, living in Anchorage, Alaska. Our two children have been studying the Roman Empire and Latin, and mom--being a bit of a foodie--is always in search of the best "Cacio e Pepe," a paste specialty! Consequently, it was our time to venture to Rome!

We needed a place that was close to the Vatican, but also provided us access with easy access to the Coliseum, Palatine Hill, The Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain, and the many amazing piazzas and restaurants. We also wanted to be in a real neighborhood, shop locally, prepare our own meals, and refresh after playing tourist. WE FOUND THE PLACE!

The Vatican museums were an easy 10 minute walk. Cipro Metro station was a couple of blocks away--and so easy to use to get everywhere in the city! Carrefour Market, a supermarket, was a block away and many other little fresh fruit and vegetable stands were all in the neighborhood. The apartment was so well equipped for cooking, napping and just relaxing! Bonci pizza was a great local find, for when we were too tired to cook!

As special as the property is, what made this place exceptional for us, was the incredible hospitality and helpfulness of Mauro, one of the owners. From advice on transportation from the airport, and where to stay until the apartment became available, to guiding us through a translation misunderstanding... he was warm, generous, and someone we could trust and rely on!

Thank you so much Mauro (and Carmen) for helping to make our stay in Rome so amazingly wonderful!

Comfortable home away from home in Rome

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 2 weeks in this comfortable apartment near the Vatican. It was perfect for 2 people. We were able to spend our days in the hustle and bustle of the city and then return to the relative quiet of this neighborhood and the apartment on the 7th floor. It is very conveniently located to the Cipro metro stop and close to 2 or 3 supermarkets. The kitchen is small but adequate for making breakfast and simple meals. Good dishwasher and washing machine, although we never figured out how to use the dryer. The bed was very comfortable and the WiFi service was excellent. We recommend the restaurant across the street "Secondo Tradizione". The owner of the apartment, Mauro Michelangeli, is a genuinely friendly and helpful man who enjoys making his guests feel at home. One highlight of our stay in Rome was to be able to spend time with Mauro and his wife Carmen.

Very clean and comfortable, convenient for tube and Vatican.

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable stay (4 nights). The supermarket is just across the street, and less than a 5 minute walk to the tube. The apartment is spacious and contemporary in style with quality fixtures and fittings, plus thoughtful touches to make your stay more personal. The owner organised a taxi to pick us up from the airport which gave us peace of mind, and then met us at the entrance to the apartment block. The apartment is off a quiet side street. We might have struggled to find the apartment in the dark in an unfamiliar city, on a quiet Sunday evening. We were shown how to work the shutters/boiler/ dishwasher etc. The bed was especially comfortable, and the bathroom was a real pleasure with French windows and a spacious shower. We only ate breakfast at the apartment(on the balcony off the bedroom with a great view of St Peter's), eating locally in the evenings, but the kitchen was well equipped should you wish to cook. On our last day we used the local 'Stow your bags' facility which was excellent. We used bus 23 a couple of times which gets you between the Vatican area and near to the Colosseum area - great value at only 1.5 Euros per person. We used the Leonardo Express for our return to the airport- very straight forward. We would recommend this apartment and owner.
