The Vatican Museums are one of the most visited museum complexes in the world – receiving over 6.4 million visitors in 2017. And for good reason. The Vatican Museums house one of the world’s richest collections of art works – classical and modern – collected by Popes over centuries and secured under lock-and-key in one of the world’s smallest countries. If you’re planning your first trip to Rome, there’s a good chance the Vatican Museums are on your list (or at least they should be!) If you’re looking for a place to stay where the museums are right under your nose – then AP10 Vaticano vacation rental by Rome Accommodation is the place for you.
The Vatican vacation rentaly by Rome Accommodation features 1 bedroom, 1 bath, kitchen, and spacious living/dining room. Located on the 2nd floor above the ground floor (accessible by lift) in a historic palazzo just down the street from the Vatican Museums. Upon entering the apartment, the entrance corridor connects all of the separate spaces. To the right, the spacious bedroom with a queen size bed, wardrobe, love seat and TV. Next to the bedroom is the bath, and the kitchen directly adjacent. To the left of the corridor, there’s the spacious living room and dining area, full of light from the large window that faces the street.
The home contains all the modern conveniences of home, including complimentary wifi internet access, autonomously controlled central heating, air conditioning, and a washing machine. The TV features local satellite as well as SKY for international entertainment and sports events.
While the Vatican Museums are typically the greatest draw for this home (and St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican in general), its Prati location means it is at the heart of everything in the northwest corner of Rome. Prati is an upscale, modern neighborhood in Rome, home to a diverse selection of restaurants and great shopping.
For pizza lovers, Prati is home to Bonci, one of Rome’s most famous bakers – with two locations: Via Trionfale and Pizzarium, Via della Meloria. For craft beer lovers, there’s Be.Re on Via Vespasiano which pours dozens of Italian craft beer on draft to go with your Trapizzino, a pita-shaped Roman street food developed a few years ago in Testaccio.
Also around the Vatican, restaurants La Zanzara and Il Sorpasso are great dinner to late-night haunts filled with young locals, offering good wine and bites as well as classic Roman pasta dishes and entrees.
If you’re looking for gelato, the original Gelateria dei Gracchi, located on the street of the same name, scoops up some of the most highly regarded gelato in the city.
With gelato in hand, head to Via Cola di Rienzo to succumb to some retail therapy. International boutiques and local brands alike line the wide street that connects Piazza del Popolo on the other side of the river with Piazza del Risorgimento just outside the Vatican walls.
