Prati

A low-stress Roman neighborhood with high standards.

Across from the Vatican's holy borders, designer stores make shopping the religion in Prati while neat and gridded streets contribute to its residential calm. This tidy neighborhood effortlessly mixes business with pleasure–elegant office buildings share Prati's real estate with high-end shops and simple public squares. Prati's removal from the city's center adds another layer to its luxury as its relative distance shields its citizens from the fast-paced frenzy of central Rome.

The neighborhood is very safe due to its proximity with the Vatican, and very well connected with public transportation. (That is if you don't like to walk, because many monuments are at a walking distance.)"
