Rome modern apartment Vatican

Perfect in EVERY Way!!

A perfect stay in the Eternal City” 

where to start my review of “perfection” when you leave the United States for Europe, many times you leave behind some of the creature comforts that we Americans are use to. NOT in this case! We could not have been more taken care of and watched out for, from the cookies in the cookie jar to the frozen packs in the refrigerator for our take away lunches and let me say…the ability to make ICE! It truly has been four nights of pure HEAVEN!

The Apartment was exactly as pictured on the site, beautiful decorated and clean, not just clean, but spotless!
The location was this; we walked out the front of the apartment turned right, took 20 steps to the corner, crossed the street to the left and could see the steps to the Vatican museum! REALLY? Could it get any better? There was an amazing fresh market that had everything from fresh breads and pastries to all types of fruits and vegetables to beautiful nuts and olives! Marco had a book of all the best restaurants, subway information, maps and many other things we didn’t even have time to read through!

Just to let you know that this review is legit, he actually meet us to pick up the keys at 4:30 in the morning because we had a 6:00 am. Train to catch…no one could make that up, oh and he also reserved two taxies to pick us up!

We will have stayed 37 days in Europe and nothing EVEN COMES CLOSE to this apartment! Please accept our sincere thank you for our perfect stay in the eternal city! Caio!

Rome apartment in Vatican museums area -Great appartment & great owner

Great appartment & great owner

 5 of 5

We spend 4 great days in this brand new appartment with 2 bedrooms + 2 bathrooms & 2 convertible beds in the living room with 2 adults & 3 kids. Evrything was confortable (beds, furniture, …) & well designed. The owner anticipate all your needs for a short or longer stay. You have all the comodities needed for 6 people (except TV but you don’t really need it in Roma). Wifi was working well & building was very quiet even we stay during new years eve night. You will find around the appartment a lot of shops (supermarket, bakery, restaurants…) to buy some food. The owner was really taking care of us with advice about visiting Rome (transport, maps,…) & welcome gift when whe arrived (Nice “Pan Doro” really appreciated by the kids for breakfast). The owner speak english & was really flexible to make our stay the best he can….Thanks again !

Best apartment in Rome - Vatican museums - Saint Peter'sRome with the comforts of home!

  1. Find a fabulous apartment in Rome ✔️

This updated, bright and spacious apartment was a delight. What you get is definitely more than what you see. The apartment is equipped with all the comforts of home and situated in a great location; close to the Vatican, shops, restaurants, bakeries and an outstanding market just around the corner for absolutely anything you could possible need.

We appreciated Marcos attention to detail in all areas. He has clearly put a lot of thought into what will provide the best experience for his guests. The cosy living room, the two bathrooms the fully equipped kitchen, where we made a number of evening meals. You could throw open the windows to see and hear the sights and sounds of Rome or close them for restful silence.

We walked for miles and miles everyday, visiting all the major landmarks, on foot, then returned to our oasis apartment to rest, refresh and regroup for the evening or next day.

Marco is an exception host! Reliable, knowledgeable and a great source of assistance. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for him in assuring us a great

Vacation in Rome.

We, four women, from England & Canada will definitely be back. We will bring our husbands and tell our friends all about Marco and his fabulous apartment.

Beautiful Rome apartment Vatican areaThe perfect place to stay in Rome

 5 of 5

If you are looking for the perfect place to stay when visiting Rome, look no further. Marco’s apartment is beautiful, it is pristine, and it is ideally located for visiting any location in Rome and Vatican City.

The Apartment

The pictures of the apartment are beautiful but the real thing is many times more so! The whole apartment (kitchen, living room, bedrooms, and bathrooms) is very, very, clean and neat. Nothing is old or broken, and it seems as though the apartment was quite recently renovated. The bedrooms are large and spacious, and the bathrooms are modern and elegant. The apartment has air-conditioning in each bedroom and the living room, which made it a haven from the 95F heat when we visited Rome. Marco has a binder with instructions for operating everything so we felt at home immediately. The apartment is located 2 or so minutes walk from Vatican City but manages to provide welcome peace and quiet that helps with recuperation after a busy day of sightseeing.

Marco’s exceptionalism as a host

When you visit a place you’ve never been to before, where you have no friends or family, you are essentially on your own. This is not the case if your host is Marco! I cannot speak more highly of Marco as a host and as a person. He really made us feel like we had a friend whom we knew well in Rome, one who was always ready to go above and beyond to help us out with any inquiries!

Marco was extremely helpful and accommodating to us even before we arrived in Rome, responding to emails and text messages we sent him promptly. The tips he sent us in his emails (and the ones contained on his awesome website) were helpful from the moment we arrived. For example, we knew what the fixed price for a taxi from the airport to his apartment was, saving us from getting fleeced by unscrupulous drivers! He also had practical tips about sights to see, the best local restaurants and gelaterias, and when / how to get tickets for some of the famous museums.


In summary, our group was extremely impressed and very happy we chose to stay here! Whenever we visit Rome in the future, this is where we will stay, and we recommend this apartment to everyone!

Very clean, nicely decorated and comfortable place to stay that is close to the Vatican Museum.

We highly recommend this apartment for anyone who is truly looking for a home away from home. Marco is a very welcoming and thoughtful guest master. He provided a notebook fillled with helpful information (everything from public transportation tips, local restaurant recommendations, to step by step instructions as to how to work the washing machine and other kitchen appliances). I brought my husband and mother-in-law with me for my 4th trip to Rome and their 1st. We loved the location–within a 15 minute walk to St. Peter’s Basilica and even closer walk to the Vatican museum. It is also fairly close to 2 different metro stops. After touring around the city during the day, we loved being able to come “home” and relax and even made dinner at the apartment a couple of times during our stay. There is a very convenient grocery store within a couple of blocks and so we were able to pick up essentials for breakfast (although Marco graciously keeps the kitchen stocked with coffee, espresso, a variety of teas, and other essentials and also left us a nice pistachio bread). The kitchen has everything you need and more! The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were comfy. We appreciated having 2 bathrooms as well. Marco also provides you with great resource information prior to your stay however I only wish I had read more! I do recommend that you take his advice and if you opt to take a taxi to the apartment from Fiumincino Airport, that you first ask the driver how much they will charge (we didn’t do that and ended up paying 10-12 euros more than we should have). It should only cost about 50 euros which for us was worth it as it would have been difficult for us to manage all of our luggage using the train and metro. Marco was also kind enough to help arrange a taxi pick up for us the day of our departure. Marco is quick to respond to messages too which was helpful. This apartment could easily accommodate 4-6 people (there is a king size bed in the master that also has an en suite bathroom, the second bedroom has 2 twin beds, and I believe there are 2 pull out twin beds in the living room). Thank you Marco for providing such a beautiful home away from home!!

Wish I could give more than 5 stars!

A delightful place to stay, and the host, Marco, was fantastic! His attention to the anticipated needs/desires/wants of his guests is incredible. For example, the apartment was supplied with useful/needed items such as dish and laundry detergent, a collection of extras to pamper yourself, like quality perfumes, cologne, shampoo, body wash, and a booklet with all sorts of useful information/recommendations. He also left some cakes, cookies, pastries, and beverages for us as well. Marco arranged for a minivan as there were five of us to transport us to the airport and despite the taxi showing up at 7:30 in the morning, Marco showed up to make sure everything went smoothly and to wish us farewell. The apartment was recently renovated, it is immaculate, well furnished, and had everything we needed. We visited in the heat of the summer, and unlike the other apartments in Italy that we have stayed, this one had an abundance of air conditioning units which kept the entire apartment cool. This unit is on the fourth floor, so there is minimal noise from outside, but no worries, the building has a small elevator so you won’t need to carry your luggage up the stairs. The location of the apartment is fantastic particularly if you are planning to see the Vatican, as the Vatican Museum is less than 5 minutes walk away. It is also very near public transportation — bus stops are just down the street, and it is about a 5-minute walk to a metro station. Hence the apartment is well situated for sightseeing pretty much anywhere in Roma. The apartment is in a safe, predominantly residential neighborhood, with a nearby grocery store and a fair number of good restaurants, which was a welcomed surprise with the unit’s proximity to the Vatican. Overall, we were very impressed with this apartment. We are already dreaming of returning to Roma and staying in Marco’s apartment.

We loved it!

This apartment was just as it was pictured–and better! Very clean, well maintained, very comfortable, reliable wifi, and great location (2 blocks from the Vatican, 3 blocks from the Metro). Marco arranged for our taxi from the airport upon arrival and to the train station upon departure. It was great to have someone waiting for us at the airport and not have to worry about figuring out the train system and metro right away. Marco was waiting for us at the apartment, and he gave us a very thorough introduction to the apartment and to the area around it. He left us all kinds of information about places to eat and things to do. He also left us with a few snacks, which really came in handy. The apartment worked great for our family with a bedroom for my husband and me, and then a second bedroom with twin beds for our 2 young adult children.

Rome and this apartment was our first stop in our two week European trip–and it was hard to match its perfection. I would recommend this apartment without hesitation to anyone traveling to Rome.

Modern apartment in Rome - Vatican museums: light and fresh two-bedroom apartment

A Perfect Rome Flat

 5 of 5

This apartment is in a great location in Rome, just a block or so from the Vatican Museum, and a few blocks from St. Peter’s and the Rome metro. It was exactly as advertised, and is very pretty and fresh, extremely clean, and everything functioned well, including the wifi. The owner, Marco, was a delight to deal with, and we appreciate all the extra efforts he went to to ensure that our stay was comfortable. He was available to answer all our questions, and make recommendations for restaurants, etc. We would surely stay here again, and unequivocally recommend it.

Der Empfang des Vermieters, Marco, war sehr herzlich und entgegenkommend. Er hat uns mit vielen Informationen weiter geholfen. Auch hat er es nicht gescheut uns morgens um 6.00 Uhr zu verabschieden. Wir hatten einen sehr gelungenen Aufenthalt in Rom. Die Wohnung ist absolut zu empfehlen.

The ideal Roman apartment in a perfect location!

Marco is wonderful, and his apartment was absolutely perfect! Everything is pristine and stylish, very roomy, and the beds are very comfortable. The location is perfect for sightseeing and is absolutely quiet at night. Marco has upgraded this apartment with all new and stylish accessories, and he even provided us with all the goodies that the four of us needed for breakfasts for four days! There is also the most fun and fascinating fresh food market on the block, where vendors sell everything from fresh fish to table wine for the best prices I’ve seen. We had fun getting some sliced meats, cheeses and wine for our own aperitivos back at the apartment. There is also a restaurant two doors away that, after traveling in Italy for weeks, we decided had the best food we had eaten. It’s a small, family-run place called Molise.

Another plus to this apartment, that I did not find in any of our other rentals, was a working elevator that fit four people. That was a huge convenience.

We could not have been happier with Marco and his apartment. All four of us were extremely pleased, and would return in a minute! Marco had great travel advice for us, and even recommended where to go in Florence when we left Rome. He was absolutely right again. Mille grazie, Marco!

Fantastic apartment!!!

 5 out of 5

We stayed in Marcos apartment for 3 nights and can only describe our time as perfect. The apartment was comfortable and spotless, the little extras that Marco provides really do make the experience exceptional. We have stayed in many places but this really has been one of the best. Marco was so helpful and his guides and recommendations were invaluable. I would recommend this apartment to anyone and cannot wait to return. It’s in a perfect location to explore Rome, 5 minutes from the Vatican and the metro. There are great cafes and restaurants right on the doorstep if you don’t want to travel far in the evenings or for breakfast. Marco provides toiletries, coffee, tea, biscuits and also beautiful sweets! He really is thoughtful and this is more than an apartment, it feels like home from home. Rome is an amazing city and this apartment made our trip all the more memorable.

Modern, comfortable flat with everything you need for a perfect stay in Rome.

A beautiful flat in a perfect position for sightseeing just ten minutes stroll from St Peter’s Basilica. Marco couldn’t have been more helpful and the restaurant recommendations were spot on – lots of excellent places to eat within five minutes walk of the flat, which is also close to the Metro. Airy rooms and efficient air conditioning were much appreciated as temperatures outside soared, as were the comfortable beds after long busy days; the flat was well-equipped with everything we needed. An ideal base for an enjoyable and memorable visit. Thanks Marco for all your help including the final taxi booking to the airport!

Nous avons été très bien accueilli par Marco qui avait prévu de délicates attentions dans l’appartement. Nous avons eu toutes les informations pratiques pour nos déplacements, nos visites, nos envies de restaurants et d’autres astuces que Marco nous a communiqué! L’appartement de Marco est tout simplement très confortable, au calme, bien placé ( 5 minutes du musée du Vatican et 400 mètres du métro). le quartier est animé juste ce qu’il faut . Marco s’est occupé de réserver un taxi pour notre retour. Nous avons passé un très bon séjour en famille et nous aurions pu y séjourner quelques jours encore. Grazie mille Marco.

Clean and comfortable home, excellent location and fantastic host!

My husband, our teenage daughter and I stayed at Marco’s apartment for 3 nights and had a great time. The apartment was within walking distance from the Vatican, where we spent majority of our time while in Rome. When we were ready to venture outside of the Vatican, the subway is conveniently nearby so we can hop on and off without any problem. The apartment was on the third floor of a residential building and it has an old style elevator, where you have to close the double door properly to operate it. It was a little tricky to get it right, but once we figured it out, we actually loved it!! Living like the locals, Italian style! Marco was a great and friendly host. The apartment was meticulously clean and everything in the apartment was thoughtfully furnished (a jar of chocolate mint by the bed side, antique Bible in English in the living room). Marco was responsive to our questions and requests during the stay. We contacted him through Whatsap and email, using the Wifi available in the apartment. Upon checking out, he brought us a bag of Italian cookies and he was genuinely interested in hearing how our stay in Rome went. We highly recommend this property to others and we’ll definitely come back!

Pleasant, comfortable stay – HIGHLY Recommended

This spacious, comfortable and immaculately clean apartment is conveniently located within walking distance of the Vatican City, the subway station for exploring further afield as well as a supermarket, numerous restaurants and shops. The apartment is presented as per photo’s and did not disappoint in anyway. The apartment is located on the fourth flour and is accessible by lift or stairs. Marco was most helpful from the point at which we made our first enquiry about our stay in the apartment, through until our departure. As a family of 4, we would highly recommend the apartment if you are looking for a comfortable stay to explore beautiful Rome. Paula, David and boys.

Great appartment in Rome Vatican Museums Saint Peter's

Great location, great accommodation, really helpful host- could ask for no more!

 5 of 5

Marco was helpful from the first time we got in contact re the flat, which was clean comfortable modern and most convenient for all facilities. Marcos advice regards restaurants, bakers, local market just behind the flat and tour guides helped us make the very most of our stay and ‘hit the ground running’. Beds very comfortable, showers good, flat spotless.

The flat is just round the corner from the Vatican , close to metro and bus routes and walkable to the centre of the city if you wish and have a little energy.

Marco recommended a guide to us and he was great and helped us get the most out of the days in Rome.

Everything is as seen and described and we couldn’t recommend it enough. We shall recommend our stay to friends and family and this says it all.

You cannot get a better host than Marco! He made our stay in Rome perfect. It was a delight to have known him. The apartment is beautiful, spacious and very very comfortable. Close to the Ottaviano Metro Station, so very easy to get around Rome if you don’t want to walk everywhere. We loved the typical Italian neighbourhood which was safe and quiet. The Vatican Museum is just around the corner. We would not hesitate to stay there again and will definitely recommend Marco’s apartment to friends.


Marco was a great host! He definetely made you feel at home in his apt. He is very detailed and you can see this in the condition of his apartment and how special he treats his guests. Meeting Marco was one of the highlights of our trip! The apartment offers all the convienences for a visit to Rome. Location is excellent , close to the metro, walking distance to the Vatican, and very close to supermarkets & restaurants. Everything in the apartment looks brand new. We were 6 guests and slept very comfortable in the apartment. All day to day necessities ( and more) were included in with apartment. I fully recommend staying in this apartment.


Marco met us at the agreed upon time and provided organized and detailed information about the apartment and neighborhood. He even welcomed us with Italian cookies and cake! The apartment was immaculate with comfortable beds and included everything we needed to feel at home. The street it is on is quite busy and close to the huge and comprehensive Farmer’s Market, Vatican, metro, numerous restaurants, gelato, pastry, and retail shops. Highly recommend and would consider staying there again! Thank you Marco!


Marco es un excelente anfitrion, se destaca por estar en todos los detalles; y tener muchisimas atenciones de muy buen gusto para con sus huespedes. El departamento supera ampliamente las espactativas que generan las fotos. Esta ubicado a una cuadra de la basilica de San Pedro. Lugar espectacular. Mil gracias por abrirnos ñas puertas de tu casa; estuvimos dos matrimonios muy comodos!.


Lovely apartment, with everything you need for a short stay or even a longer stay). Marco was extremely helpful in the lead up to our stay and during, from providing information about apartment and area beforehand to checking in with us after our first morning to make sure we had found everything we needed. After a slight issue with one of the beds Marco popped round the apartment while we were out (after checking with us first that this was ok) to make sure everything was fixed so it was comforting to know he was available should there have been any problems. We liked the area the apartment was in, within walking distance of Vatican City and the metro stop, with a supermarket and some nice restaurants nearby. The apartment was clean and tidy and you can tell that Marco takes pride in it, it was just lovely to stay there.


Marco was a fantastic host. From the minute we confirmed our stay, we had information about transportation from the airport, Rome sights, and a detailed summary about his home. The neighboorhood was perfect- 2 blocks from the Vatican museum. Great breakfast spots and places for dinner nearby (amazing seafood place 1 block away!). The metro is also super close as well and easy to get to if you are taking the train to other parts of Italy. Marco went out of his way to ensure we had a fabulous stay – chocolates in our room, fruit and juice in the kitchen, maps of Rome, etc. I highly recommend his place.


Rome modern apartment at Vatican Museums: comfortable and spotless apartment in Rome

Let me tell you, that you will never find a host like Marco. He is one-of-a-kind! I have stayed in many rentals the past few years and have never had a bad experience, but Marco made this one over the top. Marco treated us more like we were family and his guest then a customer. Too many special touches to mention, but we arrived late in the evening only to be greeted with snacks and drinks for the next day because he knew we wouldn’t have time to stop at the store. We felt awful arriving so late, but he was so courteous and generous with information to help make our stay in Rome spectacular. I only needed to contact him a couple of times during our stay, and his response was always immediate. Now, let’s talk about the apartment. Perfection! Spotless, immaculate and spacious. We’ve stayed in many tiny apartments in Europe and this one was very comfortable for our family of four. Not to mention, the location is so close to the Vatican, the Metro and many sites. One of our favorite activities, was going to the open fresh market and buying dinner for the evening. Fresh pastas, sauces and breads filled our bellies two nights in a row. Marco left us with a binder filled with information to help make our stay the best that it could be. I would rate Marco’s apartment and his attention to detail a 10 out of 5 if I could. He’s the best we’ve ever stayed with! Don’t think twice, this is the place for you!


Lovely place, clean and tidy, I felt right at home and not in a rental apartment. Marco was very friendly and helpful, showed me the apartment, he explained everything, gave me a map of Rome and a detailed map of the area. The newly renovated apartment is located just minutes away from two metro stations, within walking distance from the Vatican Museums and 10 minutes from St. Peter and it is close to everything: a few minutes away are ATMs, pharmacies, supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants, the local market with fresh products, subways, buses going everywhere! The bathrooms are comfortable and spacious, I even found two Bulgari perfumes, they were not complimentary, of course, but I was invited to use them at my pleasure, the robe was soft, the mattresses comfortable, and the pillows were extra comfortable. The kitchen is spacious and bright, on my arrival I found complimentary biscuits, water and fruit juice. The apartment was immaculate. This was a great choice.


Die Unterkunft von Marco war eine unserer erfreulichsten AirB&B Erfahrungen. Zum einen ist die Wohnung sehr schön und schlicht eingerichtet. Die zwei Bäder sind angenehm von der Grösse und sehr sauber. Die Küche ist bestens eingerichtet und alle Geräte waren Funktionstüchtig. Wir waren sehr zufrieden mit der Wohnung. Und zum Anderen ist Marco ein wunderbarer Gastgeber. Er wartetet bereits vor dem vereinbarten Zeitpunkt in der Wohnung auf uns und nahm sich dann auch viel Zeit, um alles bestens zu Erklären. Im Wohnzimmer (es war wenige Tage vor Weihnachten) stellte uns Marco gar einen echten(!) Weihnachtsbaum auf. Marco war auch stets erreichbar bei Fragen oder wenn wir Hilfe brauchten. Er meldete sich auch von sich aus, um nach dem Stand der Dinge zu fragen. Ihm ist der Kontakt zu seinen Gästen wichtig, ohne aufdringlich zu werden. Einige Tage in dieser Wohnung abzusteigen lohnt sich nur schon, um Marco kennen zu lernen.


Great apartment and great host!

We were greeted by Marco who explained who explained us a few things about the apartment which is really nice decorated. Marco kindly bought some fruits and cookies for us so we could have breakfast. Recently renovated and very nice new furniture and amenities like shampoo and soap. It’s just a three-minute walk from the Vatican Museums and a ten-minute walk from Borgo. The best thing was that Marco let us do early check in since we arrived in Rome at around 11:00 in the morning and also let us leave our luggage at the apartment the last day so we could walk around Rome during the day and then grab our bags in the afternoon to go to the airport. We even got a little present to take back home.



We truly enjoyed a “home away from home” during our stay in Rome.

Our stay was perfect from beginning to end. Marco met us early to accommodate our early arrival in Rome. He had also contacted us prior to our arrival and provided wonderful walking routes of the city. The apartment was thoroughly cleaned and offered amenities such as bottled water already cold, a lovely cake, cookies, juice, etc. We had a full kitchen plus a washing machine and showers in both bathroom. Marco showed us through the apartment and also left excellent recommendations for restaurants, transportation and sites of interest in the area. He also provided a phone number where we could reach him at any time. We were impressed with all the furnishings but I think one of the biggest surprises was how spacious each of the rooms were! We even had a closet large enough to hold all our Everything was as promised and is very close to Vatican City (10 minute walk) and many other sites and attractions nearby. We had many restaurants, small groceries and other shops all within very easy walking distance. We couldn’t have been happier! I would definitely stay here anytime I am in Rome!
