The GetInRome Vaticano apartment is located in a strategic point, a few steps from St. Peter's Square and the Vatican, just a few minutes walk from Castel S. Angelo and the beautiful staircase of the Spanish Steps. Car absolutely not necessary but if you arrive by car no problem, you can park just along the street or in private parkings nearby.


Most major tourist destinations, like Rome, have regulations that govern private room or apartment renting. Basically any room or apartment that rents space without respecting these regulations is not legal. Add to that the issues of taxes on income and hotel/occupancy taxes. Those who aren’t authorized to be renting their properties are surely incapable or unwilling to abide by other laws that are all connected.

In Rome, Florence, Venice and so on all rentals must be authorized by the city and guests must be registered on arrival by the property owners/manage with the police department, as well as collecting a city tourist tax, which varies city by city. In Rome it is 3,5€ per person per day.

Why should you care?

People who are concerned with the consequences will take more care than those who are either unaware of the consequences or simply don’t care.

Booking an illegal rental puts you at risk of being stranded without a place to stay if a property owner is forced to comply with the law and removes their rental from the market.

Safety. Hosts who circumvent the rental permit process are also less likely to follow fire safety regulations, building codes and/or have the required insurance coverage for public lodging establishments. If you don’t care about the law and preventing disasters, you really don’t care much about the people they might happen to.

Saving money is great, but if your precious holiday time is ruined, you may be throwing away a lot more in the end. It really comes down to one question: Do the benefits of an illegal rental outweigh the risks?

About Alessandra

Nice to meet you, I'm Alessandra and I hope to welcome you soon in Rome!

The holiday is the most awaited moment for families, groups of friends or couples. After months of work finally we plan our few days of relax! My goal is to make you enjoy your stay and I will do my best to offer you the vacation you expect. It is not just a goal but it is what we love to do!

I hope to know you soon.

Meanwhile I try to explain something about me.

I recently became a mother, and this is definitely the most beautiful experience that can exist for me. I deal, as you know, to manage this apartment in my birthplace as well as dedicate myself to contemporary art with exhibitions and events. In the apartment there will always be some new work talking a little about 'me.

Alessandra purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Alessandra chose Rome

We decided to buy this apartment because it was exactly what we were looking for: a renovated historic building with a facade protected by the Cultural Heritage, the building is the highest in the Vatican area, with concierge, surveillance cameras and lovely inner courtyard.

The location is great, a short walk from San Pietro and from the Ottaviano metro station. A residential area but full of cafes and small restaurants, quiet for walking, both day and night.

The apartment has high ceilings, large windows in every room, including the bathroom, and all overlook the lovely courtyard, quiet and quaint. This is a very important feature because unfortunately in Rome are rented illegally many properties that do not even have a window; garage renovated with photos taken in a way that does not make it clear that there are no windows. Unfortunately it is a reality that affects more than 3/4 of leased properties, so we hope that tourists make sure not to run into illegal rentals.

What makes this apartment unique

The building is the tallest in the area, with fine details and a beautiful facade of historic significance.

The apartment is very good, with large windows in every room, a very rare thing to find in an apartment in Rome center.

We had the chance to restructure it and now it fully reflects our taste for the antique and the modern, a mix of ages coming together to create what we hope will be the place for your holidays.

The location is fantastic, you can arrive to S. Pietro in a few minutes, and the walk is all plain.

Great! in 360 degrees

  • 5 of 5

We always read all reviews before booking but we could not immagine such a lovely apartment, location and Owner. Alessandra sent us a lot of info before check-in so that we could move around perfectly without loosing time. She also provided exact timetables, guides, maps, restaurants tips, tickets tips.. I may forget something because we received an e-mail full of information! When we arrived (20 min. before the planned meeting time) she was already in front of the door waiting for us! The building is beautiful, clean, with doorman and very secure. After a few steps, on the right, there is the apartment. When we arrived we immediately noticed the security door and the cleanliness..plenty of windows facing the fascinating inner courtyard. Very modern kitchen that we used several times, beautiful bathroom with huge shower and window too. Fascinating and really comfortable bedroom with flat TV and chromecast that we used to connect to our Netflix!! We slept very well after the long days of sightseeing and at check-out Alessandra met us to refund the damage deposit. She called a cab for us and helped us also after check-out.. for a "misunderstanding" we had with another Owner..

I do hope this review can be useful to other tourists because our experience was great, in 360 degrees.

From the moment of my acceptance, Alessandra was beyond helpful. I came to Rome prepared for everything, from getting from the airport to the train and from getting from the train to the subway and from the subway to the apartment. The apartment was close to everything and the super clean. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was impeccable! I could stand in it forever! Our host pointed us in the direction of amazing restaurants! We will be staying here again!

A magnificent apartment -- the photos do justice!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about this place. The surroundings were gorgeous and the apartment was very clean and beautifully appointed.

You can be very quiet in your own place.

A point to note for our pampered American friends (we are American as well): AC both in the bedroom and in the main sala, free of charge.

Also, do read the book the owner left in the apartment. It contains noteworthy information about both the surroundings and the apartment.

Needless to say, this apartment is superb.

I echo all the other rave reviews!

  • 5 of 5

I can't add anymore other than to echo the other rave reviews.

Everything that people have said is absolutely true - gorgeous, comfortable, reasonably priced and clean. Excellent air conditioning.

This property is also extremely well located. It is less than 10 minutes to the Vatican. About the same time to Castle S. Angelo. It is super easy to jump on and head to Spanish Steps or to the Colosseum.

Alessandra is helpful in every way but not intrusive. We absolutely loved our stay.

We were charmed and delighted by this apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a magical stay here. Everything was spotless.

The location is excellent...short walk into the Sistine Chapel, and relatively short jaunts to the major sites of Rome. It is also an excellent jumping off point for travel to all the sights and towns of Italy.

The attentiveness of Alessandra was incredible. From the initial warm welcome you know you are well taken care of. She offers extremely helpful advice.

The kitchen, furnishings and bathroom are of the highest standard with nice touches like rain shower head in the bath, very comfortable bed, flat screen TV, Chromecast etc.

I can't say enough how much we loved staying at this apartment. Don't let this one pass you by, you must give it a try.
