About the property

The apartment is located in the quiet Balduina district, very close to the downtown (less than 15 min. by bus) and in the highest part of the City.

Mount Mario, the highest hill of Rome in which the house is located, dominates the City center with the highest and best viewpoints.

The apartment, perfect for couples or a family, recently restored, is composed of one double bedroom, a livingroom with a double sofabed, a bathroom, a small vivible kitchen and a lovely of about 100m2 garden which is perfect for children and to enjoy the evening freshness during summer or spring. All kind of shops you need and three supermarket are just few minutes walk.

The bus stop of line 913 is just fifty meters walk from the building, and this bus line go to the downtown, to the A underground line and to St.Peter and Vatican City area in few minutes and very frequently 24h.

In this site the Via Francigena, running its last stretch, stops for a break in the Mons Gàudi, the natural balcony where pilgrims coming from the North were stopping seeing for the first time, after so long trip, the S.Peter's Dome.

We are waiting for you!!

Lovely family-run apartment with garden near the Vatican City (WiFi)
average rating of 5.0 based on 8 reviews

A very nice place to stay while in Rome.

  • 5 of 5

Close to public transportation, three different bus lines at the bus stop very close to the apartment. Appreciated that the area was not touristy, which gives you a feel for an authentic Roman way of life. There is several good restaurants nearby which is very handy. The pizzeria just across the street offers take away which comes very handy when you return from a long day downtown. Also across the street is a supermarket with most things you will need during your stay. The wifi in the apartment worked flawlessly, used skype and other services without any problems. The fact that the host lives just upstairs from the apartment is also very good. The access to a little garden was great, sitting outside in the evening is awesome. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Rome.
