Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

This recently refurbished yet authentic home in Italy’s hot-blooded capital city can be yours for a little as 3 nights or for as long as a month or more. Located in the medieval neighbourhood of Borgo Pio, this home’s serene yet rustic interior, complete with wooden floors and ceilings, is reflective of its heritage and yet perfectly suited to modern living. In the mornings you’ll want to take your coffee in the light filled sitting room and pore over one of this home’s many coffee table books before heading out for a day of sightseeing. Adjacent to the Vatican City, you’ll be perfectly placed to enjoy a stroll through picturesque, pedestrianised streets, before marvelling at the scale and majesty of Saint Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel. Return via the Passetto Papale (a view of which can be seen from your home’s terrace), a semi-secret passageway connecting the Vatican to the mighty Castel Sant Angelo — commissioned by Hadrian as a mausoleum, formerly a papal fortress and finally a museum — before stopping for a drink or a bite to eat and embracing la dolce vita. Stay local and dine alfresco at one of Borgo Pio’s many restaurants, literally on this home’s doorstep, or venture a little further into Trastevere, one of Rome’s most vivacious neighbourhoods famous for its trattorias, pizzerias, and fine dining as well as bars and nightclubs. Alternatively, cross the beautiful Ponte Sant’Angelo to reach the city centre. If entertaining from home is your bag, this home’s fully equipped kitchen means you can rustle up meals for friends in no time. The majority of major attractions are within walking distance but if your boots aren’t made for walking, there are also metro and bus stops nearby.
