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.

Appartement vraiment parfait en tout point: bien situé (très proche du Vatican), bien équipé (tout y est si on veut cuisiner un peu), très propre et très bien décoré! Il faut surtout souligner la gentillesse de Sabina et l'accueil qu'elle nous a réservé! Elle a pensé à tout pour que notre séjour soit mémorable : fruits à notre arrivée, plein d'informations sur l'appart et le quartier, des idées d'itinéraires et j'en passe!!! Nous le recommandons fortement!
Grazie mille per tutto Sabina!
Lovely apartment in a very nice and quiet (email hidden)bina is the perfect host.She offered to have a taxi picking me up at the airport and came to see me when I had a problem.
I will recommend Sabina's apartment to my friends
Thank you for everything , Sabina.
Sabina est véritablement une hôte hors pair, l'appartement est vraiment très bien, situé à une dizaine de minutes en métro du centre historique, parfait pour un séjour en couple. D'une disponibilité exemplaire, prompte à donner des conseils très utiles, nous ne pouvons que recommandé Sabina.
Everything was as described and Sabina was really helpful. Her reply is fast and she gave us good advices. Neighborhood is really quiet and convinient for everything (grocery stores, bank, subway, restaurant, etc).
Location was perfect, 5 min walk from the Vatican. We were also walking to downtown easily everyday. Best recommendation, the restaurant just in front of the flat has amazing food, and especially for the price!!!
The flat has everything we needed. Would definetely recommend this place, thank you for everything Sabina!!!
We had three nights at Sabina's lovely apartment. Sabina was not in Rome when we arrived however she arranged a taxi to meet us at the airport and a friend greeted us and welcomed us to her apartment. He explained all that was needed to know including local supermarkets, transport options etc. Sabina left a mobile phone for us to use. She was extremely helpful and responsive. She is a great host! She rang us shortly after our arrival to see all was okay. When we had a minor issue with a shower door, she arranged for it to be fixed immediately without any inconvenience to us. The apartment's location is perfect. It is only short walk to the Vatican, past a local produce market to buy snacks etc for the day. The neighbourhood is a quiet residential area with a great cafe/ restaurant across the street and lots of other good food options nearby. We are so glad we stayed at this cosy little apartment and thoroughly recommend it to other couples or solo travellers. It is very secure, safe and clean. We loved it! Next time we are in Rome we will stay here again.
L'hôte nous a beaucoup aidé pour préparer notre arrivée et nous faciliter l'accès à l'appartement. Nous avons été accueillis chaleureusement et avec des produits alimentaires ou autres à disposition, ce qui fait plaisir dès notre arrivée.
L'appartement est très bien situé, à 2 pas du Vatican, juste à côté du bus 70 qui mène directement au cœur historique de Rome et à côté du métro. De plus, il y a des commerces à proximité.
L'intérieur de l'appartement est très bien avec une literie de bonne qualité.
Du coup nous avons passé un superbe séjour, et avons pu facilement organiser nos allées et venues pour voir les principaux monuments de la Rome antique.
Sabrina has been very kind and help us in our trip organization.
Her lovely apartment is clean, cosy and perfectly equipped.
Thanks a lot!

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 !
