This flat is perfectly located LITERALLY right outside the gates of Vatican City, convenient to many other attractions as well. You will find everything you need, plus a few extras in this nicely furnished and decorated second floor flat. There is a charming covered private patio for relaxing outside. Paolo, the owner, met with us and he went over details concerning the house and area, as well as, patiently answered all questions about the location and even gave some recommendations for restaurants and attractions.
Pros--roomie, clean, personal feel, air condition, private patio, reasonably priced, only one level up from street. Not far from "hop on hop off" bus stop which will bring you close to most attractions in Rome, grocery store just up the street , nice restaurants and shopping within walking distance,
We were very pleased with this flat and plan on contacting Paolo when we return to Rome!
This was the best part of our trip. Paolo met us, gave us quality information about the apartment and location. Assisted in directions, The apartment was like home. There is a supermarket at the top of the road, walking. Everything is right there. Best restaurant just across the street, local family owned; Victoria, the local gift shop next to the entrence door has wonderful local owner Francsico, full of information willing to help with ideas, directions. We would love to come back and experience this again. Best place for Vatican experience.
thanks Paulo for a great stay, loved the accommodation and the courtyard garden,
and it was great to stay somewhere so convenient for walking around Rome.
Our stay at Paolo's apartment was wonderful. It has everything you could possibly need or want. First- location location location-- the Vatican is a block away. Literally! Who gets to walk through St Peters square to get groceries? We did!
The apartment is beautiful, comfortable, quiet!, wifi excellent, a/c cool, well appointed with supplies and even basic things like coffee, olive oil, salt.... :o)
And a private patio is beautiful, private and quiet.
Paolo is so welcoming and kind. A true gentleman.
I highly recommend.
The apartment is located less than a 5 minute walk from Vatican City and going on from there it's only a further 10 minutes to the river and tour buses,river cruises etc which take you from the north of the city down to the south. Plenty of eating places around, with local shops and cafes too. The apartment was really lovely and spotless and with temperatures in the late 20s, the courtyard was a wonderful way to relax after a tiring day sightseeing! Paolo made us very welcome and I would not hesitate in recommending this apartment. Would love to return - here's hoping the coin tossed in Trevi Fountain works! Arrivederci Roma!
This spacious and airy two bedroom apartment with private courtyard in an oasis of calm in a busy city. Paolo greeted us so graciously and explained everything to us clearly. The kitchen is compact but efficient and we were able to prepare some meals ourselves instead of relying fully on restaurant fare. In May, lunch in the courtyard with a glass of wine was perfect, but I can imagine that in warmer months the evenings would be sensational! Only steps away from St Peter's and a frequent bus around the corner, it was easy to see what we wanted to see. It was also nice that we didn't have to climb flights and flights of stairs to the apartment! Finally Paolo also arranged for a driver to take us to the airport and help with our luggage. I truly don't think we could ask for more. We would not hesitate to return!
