Piazza del Risorgimento - Pros and Cons?

Hello TA Community,

I am thinking about renting a vacation flat at Piazza del Risorgimento (Prati - Near Vatican). I will stay with my mother and my kids (10 and 8 years old) for 5 days in May.

What are your comments about the area?

- Safe?

- Walking distance to major Rome sights?

- Good transportation links to major Rome sights?

- Good restaurants, gelaterias and supermarkets nearby?

I appreciate every comments, advices and suggestions!

Ciao, Sidnei

Safe, upscale area...Other than Vatican and the nearby stuff, it is a long walk to sights...8 bus routes either start there or pass through the Piazza

1) Yes, totally.

2) It's quite far from the historical centre, but you've got St. Peter's at a stone throw and the Vatican Museums are almost right in front of you.

3) Yes - there are cart-loads of bus lines, Metro line A ("Ottaviano" and "Lepanto" stops) and tram #19.

4) As far as gelaterie are concerned, try Gelarmony (in via Marcantonio Colonna 34, near the "Lepanto" Metro stop); it's simply divine. If you're looking for a truly excellent bakery, I'd suggest you to pop in the Panificio Mosca (via Candia, 16)... and ask for a pizza bianca with Nutella! :-)

In via Cola di Rienzo there's Castroni, a big shop where you can find all kinds of coffee, tea,sweets, jams, biscuit, chocolate and the like (even if it's bit pricey) . There's also a maket nearby, the "Mercato dell'Unità".
