About Priscilla Parlante

Dear friends,

My name is Priscilla!

And on the picture you can see my family and I!

I have been a tour-guide for 15 years all over Italy.

I guided tourists and pilgrims all over.

My borned city is Rome. I love help people and it fill me up with joy show them all its secrets and its best.

I have known lots of people during my worked life and I have learned so much that when I decided to dedicate myself to my husband and my children I say: I can not stop something is in my hearth and in my spirit.

This is a real vocation.

So I though that the best use of the apartment that my dear fathers left to me was to accommodate people while in Rome since the position is fantastic to know the Eternal City. Few minutes walking and youa re in St.Peter's Square.

The knowledge acquired during these many years help me to offer to people a “Plus” that give special care to all those details make the difference.

The apartment, being so close to the Majestic St.Peter’s Basilica let feel people amazed.

You can walk early in the morning when only few people walk in this area.

Walking through the square and entering into the Church will fill you up of spiritual and artistic joy.

I have so much to offer that as many have told to me I decided to apply all my experience I acquired during the last 15 years to be at complete disposal.

Look forward to hearing from you,

Ciao from a sunny Rome!

Priscilla P.

Priscilla Parlante purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Priscilla Parlante chose Quartiere XIII Aurelio

Why my property??

1) The position is the greatest. All ROMANS love this área to live. Right in the most central área but not crowded, not touristic, positionned at on block from the most attractive place but located in a private Street and incredibly safe and quiet. Opposite of all other áreas of central Rome very noisy.

Great place to have real ITALIAN food... from bread to Pizza, from cheesees to ham, from wines to pastries, great market and supermarket. A real ITALIAN EXPERIENCE right next to the most touristic área of Rome...

2) The apartment has been refurbished in 2016.

3) Apartment located on a Street without traffic.

4) Apartment with FREE PARKING (UPON AVAILABILITY)!

5) APARTMENT WITH WI-FI 24 HOURS FREE PLUS SMART TV.

6) Lighted apartment.

7) Provided with all the necessary to accomodate few days or one month or one year.

8) Concierge.

9) Plenty of assistance.

What makes this apartment unique

The beauty of Rome, its monuments, its winding streets, its fascinating corners, has been acknowledged for centuries.

While staying in your apartment you can really live this of “Rome”.

The perfect district where locals live but exactly so close where everybody wants to go. St. Peter Basilica and the Vatican Area, Piazza Navona, Campo dei Fiori, Trastevere, ect.

Wait maybe you did never think that there is either another way to see Rome:

from above.

This is a truly breath-taking experience.

There are many locations where you can lose yourself in admiration of the panorama. Most of them are at a walking distance from your apartment.

A good view of Rome can be had from the Dome of St. Peter’s Basilica, Michelangelo last great masterpiece. It is 136 meters high and has a diameter of about 43 meters: to reach the dome you have to climb all of 330steps, an effort that is well rewarded by the spectacular view that greets you.

It is also worthwhile going up to the terrace of Castel Sant’Angelo. Where the huge bronze statue of the angel rests atop a travertine marble base. There is an unforgettable view from the “Terrazza delle Quadrighe”.

One more is the Giannicolo hill for a spectacular view of Rome by night.

All this can be done from the apartment just through charming walks while you get lost in the beauty of the eternal city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi from Michigan. Hope all is well with you. The apartment worked out fantastically. We had a beautiful time. Once we figured out how to us the bus's everything fell into place. Directions to the Borghese Museum were perfect. By the way, the Museum is phenomenal, too much to see in 2 hours. Having Gabrella help us the 1st day and then to coordinate our departure was VERY helpful, give our best to her. The web server worked great. We especially needed it to figure out our return flight. The hair dryer really came in handy since none of the converters we brought, from the US, worked. We never did find American coffee, but used instant instead, that worked out just fine. Really miss the Rome hospitality, everyone was just great to us and readily offered assistance when we needed it. Visited 13 churches while in Rome as well as most of the traditional sites. Bless you for everything you did and we will recommend your apartment to everyone we know. Your apartment is in a perfect location. Thanks again for being such a great host. Miss Rome, God Bless You. Love from the US. Bev, Fred & Scott

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in quite a few rental apartments and this one has been one of the best. Priscilla, the property owner, was attentive to our needs from the moment we booked the property. She offered excellent information on taxis, public transport, and walking within the city of Rome, plus advise on getting tickets for various venues. She sent a full description of the apartment and how the appliances worked, from the air condition to the stove to the washing machine. All expectations of the apartment were fully disclosed. She guided our travel from the airport to the apartment by train and also offered to find other transport if desired. We found the location to be perfect for our needs, very clean and comfortable. The apartment was about 2-3 blocks from St. Peter's Basilica and within walking distance to many of the sights we had planned to see. We were grateful that on our first day of arrival we were able to deposit our luggage at the apartment with the care taker while we ventured out to explore the sights. On our last day, we again were able to leave our luggage a little longer than expected so that we could tie up the last of our sight seeing. Priscilla is extremely pleasant, informative, and helpful....plus, she speaks ENGLISH, which I was very grateful for. Would I stay there again...absolutely!

Happy Turist in Rome

  • 5 of 5

This was for my wife and I the best place to live in Rome, and let me tell why:

-The location is right near San Peter Basilica, in the middle of the Eternal City, on walking distance to the most important places for sure you want to visit. And you do not need a car.

-The apartment was situated on a quiet street, no disturbing noise at any time, and you have there everything you need from a fully fitted kitchen, bathroom, up to two TV sets, for the ones not yet accommodated with the time, be able to not disturb their companions.

And now if you want my advise, when it is time for a meal go to Goose - restaurant/pizzeria. It is 5 minutes walk, on Piazale Gregorio VII #33, very different from other tourist oriented places, and you will enjoy authentic Italian cuisine, friendly atmosphere and people, mostly locals. It is crowded evenings and recommend you a reservation.

Then, if you want my advise rent this wonderful place (VRBO #383498), follow Priscilla (the owner) important advises, everything you need to know, because she know everything about visiting ROME.

Très joli appartement merveilleusement bien situé

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué cet appartement 5 nuits en avril 2016, en famille avec deux enfants et une grand-mère. Nous avons été enchantés. Cet appartement est très bien situé à quelques minutes à pied seulement de la place St Pierre, dans un quartier tranquille. Il est très propre et très bien équipé, dans un immeuble gardé et bien entretenu. La propriétaire nous a donné de très bons conseils pour préparer et effectuer nos visites. Nous recommandons très fortement cet endroit pour toute personne souhaitant visiter le Vatican et le centre historique de Rome. Un plus : nous avons pu bénéficier d'une place de parking devant l'immeuble, très appréciable dans une ville comme Rome.

Our lovely apartment in Rome

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two of my sisters-in-law and I stayed at this lovely apartment in Rome from September 26th to October 9th of 2015, and would highly recommend it for anyone wishing to have a great location in a nice apartment. Our location put us very close to St. Peter's Cathedral, as well as to many restaurants and other places of interest. The apartment owner went out of her way to make us feel welcome, and also provided us with tools to make our stay more enjoyable. All in all, I would give it five stars - both for its location and its amenities.

Beautiful Apartment and an an owner who has thought of everything!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed in Priscilla's apartment in Rome for 3 nights and it was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Priscilla's place was beautiful, clean and perfectly located near the Vatican and public transportation. Her place was well furnished with comfortable beds and all the necessities - even for cooking. From the beginning Priscilla communicated well and went above and beyond to answer all of our questions and make us comfortable. We arrived in Rome later than expected and, despite this, Priscilla graciously waited for us and spent time helping us plan our trip with recommendations for sights to see and places to eat. As a previous tour guide Priscilla's advice was right on target and invaluable. She helped us make the most of our brief couple of days in Rome. We would highly recommend staying at Priscilla's apartment and have already recommended her to other friends and family. Thank you Priscilla for sharing your lovely apartment with us and we hope to see you again in the future.

Excellent séjour à Rome

  • 5 of 5

Excellent séjour!! L'appartement est simple mais top. Il est idéalement situé à quelques pas du Vatican. On peut également partir dans le centre historique à pieds. En plus il y a un super petit magasin à coté où l'on peut acheter à manger, et sincèrement c'est délicieux ;)

Priscilla est adorable et joignable pour la moindre question, que ce soit d'ordre technique ou pour des bons plans dans Rome.

Je recommande 1000 fois!
