Our Arrival in Rome was wonderfully received by Emidio at the apartment, followed by a walk around the neighbourhood to find the best places to buy groceries, ATM, Letter Boxes, Tabac - for purchasing bus tickets, and the railway station. We also had the opportunity to ask Emidio about getting to the waterpark by Bus - Hydro Mania - worth a visit! I would recommend trying every flavour of ice cream at Captin Cone, we tried to have at least two a day. Check when you travel but on certain days entrance to the Colosseum and the Vatican museums are free! Usually either the first or last sunday of the month. If travelling with a small child in a pushchair then go directly to the front of a queue as they 'usually' will let you straight in so that you don't queue in the sun. I would recommend eating at the restaurant 'Papa Rex' which is nearby. The apartment was beautifully clean and supplied with cleaning equipment for during your stay. It was located in a really great place, walking distance to the Vatican and on a really good bus route to get everywhere else really quickly. Thank you Emidio for a wonderful holiday in your apartment.

                                                                                                We were impressed by this apartment in the Prati area. The apartment was clean and well presented. The bedrooms were a perfect size. The photographs do clearly show the quality of the apartment. It is on the third floor, but there is a lift to get up and down the stairs. The owner was prompt in his communication (arranging an early check in and a pick up from the airport); the on-site manager was also helpful booking a taxi. This is part of an old building. As a result, it can be a bit noisy - with traffic noise & tv noise from other floors; unfortunately, there was also building work in the neighbouring property (with daily 8am drilling). The apartment is a perfect base to explore Rome: St Peter's is only 10 minutes walk away; you can also reach Piazza Popolo in under ten minutes. The metro stop at Lepanto is within walking distance. As a base for a week-long visit to Rome, this apartment cannot be beaten. In terms of local recommendations: the Gelateria La Romana is right next to the apartment & has the best ice-cream in Rome; the Bibliobar just by Castel Sant'Angelo is a must; in terms of places to visit, our favourites were the Borghese park & the Museum and Crypt of the Capuchins.

The apartment was lovely wth two large sized bedrooms and an additional sofa bed in the living. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the kitchen was stocked up to ensure guests didn't have to run to the department store as soon as they arrived. The apartment is only a short 15 min walk from the Vatican and is well connected to the rest of Rome via Metro (station: Cipro). Our host, Vania, made sure we were very comfortable during our stay and was always prompt to answer our queries despite being away on holiday herself. I would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Rome.
