Sitting just north of Vatican City and Rome’s Prati neighbourhood, this colourful apartment offers an ideal base from which to explore the area’s most famous sights. Laid out over two floors and bursting with vibrant shades of yellow, red and blue, this stylish base invites sociable mornings around the table – over fresh espressos and locally bought pastries – and chilled out evenings on the sofa, a glass of Italian wine in hand. The bedrooms have been stylishly curated with funky feature walls and comfortable beds, while the pair of bathrooms with their plethora of plants ensure mornings get off without a hitch ahead of a busy day of sightseeing. Speaking of exploring, make a beeline for upscale Prati with its high-end boutiques, alfresco wine bars and gourmet restaurants, and discover the historic Castel Sant'Angelo, 1 kilometre away. You’re also just 750 metres from Vatican City where St. Peter's Basilica and the iconic Sistine Chapel are sure to impress.
