About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Elegant and modern apartment in Borgo Pio, in the heart of Vatican City, with an enchanting little balcony overlooking the majestic Saint Peter dome.

The flat is located on the second floor of a period building dated 1400, three hundreds meters away from the Saint Peter Basilica.

The place is fitted with air conditioning and it has been refurbished in January 2014 with exquisite taste and it is also enriched by the presence of an original beamed sealing.

The apartment includes:

- dining room/lounge with one double sofa bed,

- modern kitchen with fridge, cooker/oven and washing machine,

- double room with four poster double bed, fitted walk-in closet and an antique escritoire and chair,

- large bathroom with a king size shower.

It offers also central heating/air conditioning, flat screen TV and free WiFi.

From the house, with a few minutes walking you can reach all the major local sightseeing: Vatican Museum, Saint Peter Basilica and Castel Sant’Angelo, that once was the first residency of the Pope. Crossing over Sant’Angelo bridge you can also get to Campo de Fiori, the oldest open market in town and now the focal point of the movida romana at night. Near by you’ll find Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, and The Spanish steps, whilst shopping in Via del Corso. Strolling down the iconic fashion street of Via Condotti , you could enjoy a coffe break at historic Cafè Greco, founded in 1760, and where the likes of Stendhal, Shopenhauer and many others used to gather before.

If you prefer to move about on the public transport, Ottaviano underground station it’s located at about 5 minutes walking from the apartment. From Borgo Sant’Angelo instead the local bus n. 40 will take you to Piazza Venezia, from where all the ancient historic sites are located: Fori Imperiali , Arco di Tito, Colosseo and many others.

How to get there:

From Fiumicino: Terravision coach or Leonardo express will take you to Termini train station. From Termini take the line A direction Battistini and alight at Ottaviano station. Taxi service is also available.

From Ciampino: Terravision coach or private taxi.

La Porta Rossa Di Borgo - Vatican Luxury Suite
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Well situated, modern and well equipped. Need to be aware that there are steep stairs to access.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this apartment and would stay here again. It is newly renovated and has all you need. Bedroom is comfortable and plenty of hanging space, though no drawers. Good air conditioning and quiet so you can have the windows open at night if you want. Kitchen is well equipped with a new washing machine and dishwasher, hob, microwave and kettle. Daniele provided sachets of coffee, juice etc on arrival. It is ideally situated near the Vatican and in a lovely friendly area with lots of restaurants and small food shops. Daniele the owner was extremely efficient and knowledgeable and really helpful. He met us on arrival and carried our luggage up and down the stairs. We were OK with stairs but people do need to be aware that the apartment is on the second floor and only accessed by some relatively steep stairs.
