Destination guide

Discover postcard-perfect Prati

An affluent neighborhood offering a calmer alternative for travelers looking to avoid the somewhat frenzied pace of central Rome, the Prati district serves up designer shopping, a tempting foodie scene and lively nightlife, all against the magnificent backdrop of Vatican City. Prati vacation rentals offer a chance for you to live as the Romans do, placing you right in the heart of this elegant spot and close to some of the Eternal City's most revered sights. Indeed, once you've settled in, you'll find the iconic St. Peter's Square and Castel Sant'Angelo within a picturesque walk of your rental.

Things to do

Entertaining tours near Prati

Visiting the Vatican City is a must during a stay in a Prati vacation rental, but with up to 25,000 people doing the same daily, a little forward planning goes a long way. The dome at St Peter's Basilica groans under the weight of afternoon visitors but head there first thing and it's virtually empty. If you're tempted by guided tours, don't be too quick to splash out on the most expensive option. The best things in life are indeed free, especially during weekday visits between October and May when American student priests offer highly entertaining tours of the Vatican Museums.


Retail therapy in Prati

If a little retail therapy is on the agenda, there are few better places to indulge than along Cola di Rienzo, a broad shopping street dotted with high-end Italian and international brands as well as some smaller independent stores. Quaint pavement cafes along the way provide the perfect pit stop for an aperitivo. With bargains in the bag and before returning to your rental, it's worth popping across the Tiber for a look at Piazza del Popolo, a popular meeting place where highlights include a towering Egyptian obelisk and the Fountain of the Goddess of Rome.


Prati is a year-round destination

Sun-seekers often time their stay to coincide with the summer months of July and August when temperatures can soar past 80 degrees and the city provides a majestic backdrop for tucking into refreshing gelato. If you prefer fewer crowds, the shoulder seasons of April to May and September to October, when the weather is still pleasant and rental rates are lower, are something of a sweet spot. Between November and March, rates are often slashed further and although winter can be considerably cooler, that's all the more reason to explore Rome's many museums and galleries.

Natural features

Green spaces near Prati

While a serious culture fix comes with the territory while staying in a Prati vacation rental, there's plenty of opportunities to enjoy a little outdoor time, too. The vast Villa Borghese is the closest green space to the neighborhood and an impressive one at that. Open every day, the almost 200-acre park is home to the city's Gallery of Modern Art and the Rome Biopark, a 40-acre zoo with the proverbial lions and tigers and bears, although many visitors are just as happy to simply settle back on the grass and enjoy the shade afforded by the park's towering pines.
