Vaticano (St. Peters & Vatican) apartment description

R'HOME SWEET R'HOME: Stay in a fabulous apartment in one of Rome’s oldest neighborhoods, a few steps from St. Peter’s Basilica!

This accommodation combines the best that Rome has to offer: a recently renovated, light and comfortable apartment located in one of the city’s most historic quarters. The neighborhood, Rione Borgo, has cobblestone streets, artisans' workshops, neighborhood cafés and local trattorie.
It is within walking distance of the city’s major attractions, including the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, Castel Sant’Angelo, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain and the Piazza Campo de’ Fiori.

This ground-floor apartment is typical of this ancient district of Rome and it is elegantly furnished with modern fixtures. It has its own entry-way, a spacious living room with chimney (including a twin-size sofa bed and an ottoman bed), a kitchenette, a well-appointed bathroom and a master bedroom with original, Renaissance-era brick work.
The thick, Renaissance-era masonry provides cool relief from the summer heat.

Additional details: fully fitted kitchen with fridge, microwave oven and kettle; bathroom with bath tub/shower, dryer; TV; washing machine; boiler for independent heating; crib and high chair for younger children; Internet Wi-Fi; DVD reader and Video Library of 30 movies in English.

The apartment is easily accessible with public transportation, including tram, subway and bus. There are several nearby taxi stands and bicycles and scooters are available for rent. The nearby San Pietro train station has regular service to the Fiumicino airport and to the beach. There is even a taxi-boat service along the Tiber.

Guided tours available on request.

We would be happy to answer any other questions you might have.
