The apartment is located 5 minutes walking distance from the main entrance of the Vatican Museums in a residential and quiet area of Rome called Prati.
It is very well positioned and connected to the historical centre by public transport.
Buses 913 and 70 , and the underground, line A (Ottaviano station ) just 5 minutes walking from the flat will take you easily and quickly to the most beautiful historical sites of Rome, such as Spanish steps, Piazza del Popolo, "Piazza Navona" or you can choose to go just for a leisurely walk to the Vatican City.
The area is not very touristic but very Roman and lively , with nice restaurants pizzerias and bars with prices that are more reasonable than the city centre.
It is close to a very convenient shopping area called Via Cola di Rienzo, which ends on the Tiber River, crossing the bridge you find yourself in the heart of the centre of Rome, Piazza del Popolo .
The flat is also very close to a famous good quality and inexpensive Roman rional food market Trionfale where you can find a wide selection of fruits and vegetables but also a good quality fish stall and cheeses, you will find all products and delicatessens: zucchini flowers, figs, tomatoes, ham, porcini it is open every day from 7.00 am to 2.00 pm. (closed on Sunday )
The flat is spacious and has been recently repainted and decorated with light colours, it is located on the second floor with lift, of an elegant period building of the 30s. The rooms have very high ceilings, large windows and features antique marble floors a la "veneziana".
It has a spacious and completely equipped kitchen, with travertine top, gas hobs and oven , fridge, washing machine, and a table seating 4 people. NEW : Nespresso coffe machine for a delicious Italian espresso at home ! A bathroom with shower, and hair-dryer and , a bedroom with a comfortable double bed and a spacious cupboard. The flat also offers unlimited wi-fi , a flat screen TV, independent heating/air conditioning.
It is perfect for 2 people, but it can also accommodate a third person/child thanks to a comfortable harm chair that becomes a single bed quite large.(100x190 cm) Bed linen and towels are also provided.
Given flight restrictions, I always try to leave in the flat toothpaste, shower gel/shampoo etc and also when I can fresh drinks and fruits.
In my opinion , the flat is suitable for the flexible traveler who is looking for a reasonably priced accommodation and interested to live in a lively roman residential area, well connected with public transport and close to the Vatican.
If you are interested in knowing the origin of the name Prati, this is because at the beginning of XX century, this area was covered by the meadows of Castel Sant'Angelo, fortified residence of the Popes.

Es la segunda vez que vamos al departamento de Sabina y nos sentimos como en casa. La ubicación es excelente, ella se preocupa para que no falte nada y está atenta a cualquier duda o necesidad.
El departamento está muy bien decorado, tiene todo lo necesario para la estadía y es muy acogedor.
Está ubicado en un barrio tranquilo, pero con todo lo que necesitan a su alrededor. Restaurantes cerca, supermercados, cafés, el subte a dos cuadras... En fin, es una zona que equilibra la tranquilidad con las facilidades necesarias para vivir bien.
Sabina was super accessible and helpful and really made me feel welcome. She gave all the directions, made sure I arrived well and, because she wasn't able to be there in person, made sure to contact me once I arrived. She is very attentive!
Giacomo, as well was very detailed explaining everything about the apartment and very helpful with suggestions for what to do around the apartment, which was really well located - it had coffee shops, supermarkets and everything you need around it, plus, really close to the metro station which makes it easy to go around Rome.
The apartment in itself is lovely - very clean and very cute! I enjoyed my stay very much! Thank you Sabina!
we had a wonderful time in sabinas flat ,Sabina was a brilliant host, very quick to respond to messages, and such a friendly helpful lady. she organised our taxi to and from the airport and left us a mobile phone to use while we in rome .
Although we didn't see sabinina in person , we spoke to her a few times and she gave us lots of useful information about restaurants, good walks to go on, shopping places ,she was very helpful and friendly, a real pleasure to talk to.
Sabinas friend met us when we arrived at the flat and he was also lovely, helpful, and showed us how every thing worked.
The flat itself was as is in the pictures, the bed was comfy,the kitchen had everything we needed ,and we were 3 minutes away from the metro .
there were restaurants and bars very close by . a pizzeria next door, and a café across the road.
the basket of fruit, chocolates, nespresso coffee and soft drinks in the fridge waiting for us on arrival were a lovely welcome thank you.
we will be recommending youre Flat to our friends Sabina, thank you so much for making it a brilliant, easy air bnb experience and thank you for having us.

The flat is in a very good location just 10 min from Vatican and from metro and tram connections. It is very easy to get anywhere in Rome from the location. Sabine was very attentive, helpful and flexible. She provided for all the necessary ( and more) for let you feel at home.
The flat is quiet, nice decorated and clean, hosted in a early xx c. Building, decor in marble and with the flair of past time.
Sabina is the best host I've ever met really! She's super helpful, kind, patient, and considerate! She gave me very detailed explanation of how to get to the apartment from Termini and offered to pick me up at the metro station! It was very kind for her to do so and it was a rainy day! She explained everything very clearly about the apartment, marked best route for sightseeing, recommended splendid local restaurant, etc. She really made us feel like home and we had an amazing experience in Rome.
If you wanna stay in Rome, choose Sabina as your host.
And really, thank you Sabina for everything! :)
p.s. The location is great, quiet, nice and safe area with walking distance to Vatican City.
The apartment looked exactly the same as the pictures. It got everything you need in it. Superclean!
Mon mari et moi avons été ravis de notre installation dans le Prati, bien relié tant par le métro que par les bus pour découvrir cette superbe ville de Rome. C'est un vrai quartier romain avec son marché à deux pas, ses cafés et restaurants d'habitués...
L'appartement dans un bel immeuble 19ème correspondait à la description. Nous avons été très bien accueillis à notre arrivée par un ami de Sabina qui nous a donné les éléments essentiel pour notre séjour. Au cours de la semaine, Sabina nous a donné des indications intéressantes pour nos visites par mail. Nous les avons suivies et avons été très satisfaits. Merci à Sabina !
Obwohl Sabinas Mann im Krankenhaus war, hat Sie sich aus der Ferne gut um uns gekümmert und uns gute Tipps für Rom gegeben! Die Wohnung liegt wirklich gut! Zum Vatikan waren es nur 10 Minuten zu Fuß und zur Piazza de Popolo nur 20 Minuten! Die Wohnung ist sauber und alles was man braucht ist vorhanden. In der Nähe ist direkt ein gutes einfaches Restaurant und ein KIOSK wo man das nötigste wie Milch und Brot auch noch am Wochenende bis 22:00 Uhr bekommt. Es war ein schöner Urlaub!

Ciao ! I am an architect and I work between Italy and UK and I have travelled extensively. I am interested in culture, visual arts and particularly music.
I use this little "nests" to escape from work and stressful life when I come to Rome since I enjoy the beautiful ancient sites of Rome , but I am happy to share it with friends and those who will appreciate the special qualities of the place and the beauty of Rome.
I refurbished this apartment putting a lot of love and care. I love singing , and funny enough from this apartment sometimes you can appreciate beautiful music of opera singers and pianists coming from the Accademy of Music which is very near !
