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

Situated just moments away from St Peter's Basilica and all the wonders of the Vatican, this elegant and quirky apartment makes for a great base for those visiting Rome. While you’ll have easy access to all parts of the city from here, the quiet, residential area offers a rest bite from the hustle and bustle. The apartment boasts unique features and plenty of gorgeous art pieces and books, scattered lovingly around by the host. We love the wooden ceiling and the winding staircase, zigzagging its way up to the mezzanine bedroom. There’s ample room in the lounge area for everyone to relax and unwind after a long day of exploring – settle in for an evening of movies or curl up with a book and a glass of Italian wine. You’ll be able to rustle up delicious meals in the well-equipped kitchen and share them with your loved ones at the dining table – in case you don’t feel like cooking, there are endless choices when it comes to excellent dining-out options here. For a night of restful sleep, you’ll have your choice between two comfy bedrooms – if climbing stairs isn’t your thing, opt for the elegant master bedroom situated on the ground level. Wake up feeling restored and ready for more la dolce vita. Aside from the Vatican, you can also easily walk to the river from here, and then it’s just a matter of picking a direction as there’s great beauty awaiting at every step.

About Vatican

It's not always clear when places become popular tourist destinations. However, with the Vatican City, we know the exact date – 67AD when the apostle St Peter was martyred at the foot of the Vatican Hill and buried nearby.
