About The Experience

In this centrally-located apartment in Rome, you’ll be just steps away from St. Peter’s Basilica, the world’s largest church. In this case, though, location isn’t everything: this stylish apartment would be a great find even if it weren’t located in one of the best locations in Rome.

Location Description

This apartment is located in Rome outside Vatican City, just 200 meters from Saint Peter’s Basilica. Right outside the apartment, you’ll find a grocer, bakery, and several restaurants. At 200 meters, there is a post office, pharmacy, bar, and stores. There’s a train station 300 meters away, and a parking garage 20 meters away, although a car is not necessary in Rome. You’ll be within walking distance of the Vatican Museums, and you can easily take public transportation to the Colosseum and Rome’s other sights.

Nearby Attractions: Vatican City is known for its impressive museums, St. Peter’s Basilica and beautiful gardens. Explore a little to the north of the Vatican, however, and you'll find Prati neighborhood, known for the Mercato Trionfale and Flower Markets. Freshly made pasta, delicious cheese and locally grown produce will keep your eyes and stomach delightfully satisfied. The Borgo neighborhood, just outside the Vatican’s walls, offers medieval charm in a peaceful residential setting.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Great location. Quiet street with several shops and eating places close at hand. Handy to the Vatican area and bus service is nearby once you figure that system out. Enjoyed this place. No complaints of any kind. The manager was very helpful and interested in making our stay a good one.
Enjoyed Most:
Its location. We were able to feel like we were a part of urban life in Rome from the first day there.
Enjoyed Least:
Kitchen could have been better equipped for meals but that was certainly not a big deal.
Surrounding Area:
We were literally right around the corner from St. Peter's Square but we also had several food stores and restaurants within a few feet of the front door.
Tips or Restaurants:
Just be aware that part of this area is not "touristy" and several close by restaurants were closed on Sunday and on Monday. There is a great little "deli" store just two or three doors to the right as you come out the front door. Good spot for bread, cheese, meat and wine.
Directions:
Since this is a city address and the best way to get there is by taxi, I don't know how you could do much better. I would emphasize the fact that there are taxis that have permits and those that don't. Go to the taxi stand and get the permit taxi to avoid any surprises on fares.
Check In Out:
Things went smoothly but a working phone would be a great help. Our host - Stefano - was very gracious and very helpful. Really went out of his way to help us with advice, directions and tips about Rome and the local area.
