The GetInRome Vatican apartment is located at a strategic point, a stone's throw from St. Peter's Square and the Vatican, just a few minutes away from Castel S. Angelo and the splendid Spanish Steps. Stain is not absolutely necessary.

The apartment is just a stone's throw from the Ottaviano Metro stop, with which you can reach easily and in a very short time the other important poles of the city. (Colosseum, Piazza del Popolo, Piazza di Spagna, Circus Maximus etc.).


Most major tourist destinations, like Rome, have regulations that govern private room or apartment renting. Basically any room or apartment that rents space without respecting these regulations is not legal. Add to that the issues of taxes on income and hotel/occupancy taxes. Those who aren’t authorized to be renting their properties are surely incapable or unwilling to abide by other laws that are all connected.

In Rome, Florence, Venice and so on all rentals must be authorized by the city and guests must be registered on arrival by the property owners/manage with the police department, as well as collecting a city tourist tax, which varies city by city. In Rome it is 3,5€ per person per day.

Why should you care?

People who are concerned with the consequences will take more care than those who are either unaware of the consequences or simply don’t care.

Booking an illegal rental puts you at risk of being stranded without a place to stay if a property owner is forced to comply with the law and removes their rental from the market.

Safety. Hosts who circumvent the rental permit process are also less likely to follow fire safety regulations, building codes and/or have the required insurance coverage for public lodging establishments. If you don’t care about the law and preventing disasters, you really don’t care much about the people they might happen to.

Saving money is great, but if your precious holiday time is ruined, you may be throwing away a lot more in the end. It really comes down to one question: Do the benefits of an illegal rental outweigh the risks?

About Alessandra

Nice to meet you, I'm Alessandra and I hope to welcome you soon in Rome!

The holiday is the most awaited moment for families, groups of friends or couples. After months of work finally we plan our few days of relax! My goal is to make you enjoy your stay and I will do my best to offer you the vacation you expect. It is not just a goal but it is what we love to do!

I hope to know you soon.

Meanwhile I try to explain something about me.

I recently became a mother, and this is definitely the most beautiful experience that can exist for me. I deal, as you know, to manage this apartment in my birthplace as well as dedicate myself to contemporary art with exhibitions and events. In the apartment there will always be some new artwork.

Alessandra purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Alessandra chose Rione XXII Prati

We decided to buy this apartment because it was exactly what we were looking for: a renovated historic building with a facade protected by the Cultural Heritage, the building is the highest in the Vatican area, with concierge, surveillance cameras and lovely inner courtyard.

The location is great, a short walk from San Pietro and from the Ottaviano metro station. A residential area but full of cafes and small restaurants, quiet for walking, both day and night.

The apartment has high ceilings, large windows in every room, including the bathroom, and all overlook the lovely courtyard, quiet and quaint. This is a very important feature because unfortunately in Rome are rented illegally many properties that do not even have a window; garage renovated with photos taken in a way that does not make it clear that there are no windows. Unfortunately it is a reality that affects more than 3/4 of leased properties, so we hope that tourists make sure not to run into illegal rentals.

What makes this apartment unique

The building is the tallest in the area, with fine details and a beautiful facade of historic significance.

The apartment is very good, with large windows in every room, a very rare thing to find in an apartment in Rome center.

We had the chance to restructure it and now it fully reflects our taste for the antique and the modern, a mix of ages coming together to create what we hope will be the place for your holidays.

The location is fantastic, you can arrive to S. Pietro in a few minutes, and the walk is all plain.

Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is perfect in terms of location and cleanliness. Alessandra was excellent in her communication and was waiting for us when we pulled up in the taxi. She thoroughly explained everything and even gave us recommendations. She made sure we knew she was available for any requests to aid us in our stay while in Rome.

The apartment was extremely clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the kitchen had all necessary utensils. There was a taxi stand two blocks away which made it easy when leaving with all of our luggage. The metro was just around the corner, although we walked everywhere to work off the 3-5 servings of gelato we ate everyday!

This apartment met every requirement we had and then some! When we come back to Rome next year, we will be staying here again!

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in good location. Close to the Vatican and many other attractions. Great restaurants nearby which are noted in the information book provided. Alessandra was wonderful. We arrived early and she came as quickly as she could to let us in. Gave great tips in regards to taxi's and other transportation. She told us what the taxi would be from the airport ahead of time and of course they tried to charge us more so we saved been taken for a extra 12 eruo. Would definitely recommend this apartment.

A cozy flat, a great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on Via Germanico, central to all the places we wanted to visit and conveniently located by the metro station on Ottaviano. There were great restaurants galore and a market and a laundry and a pharmacy readily available close by. We stayed for nine nights and fixed our own breakfast easily in the little kitchen. We were able to walk to many places also as it is very near the Vatican and within thirty minutes of many other places tourists want to visit. Don't have any reservations about making a reservation here!

From the moment of my acceptance, Alessandra was beyond helpful. I came to Rome prepared for everything, from getting from the airport to the train and from getting from the train to the subway and from the subway to the apartment. The apartment was close to everything and the super clean. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was impeccable! I could stand in it forever! Our host pointed us in the direction of amazing restaurants! We will be staying here again!
