Our awesome stay started with professional and friendly communication via email - booking from New Zealand several months before visiting Rome. Easy instructions were given for arrival and our host met us at the apartment and gave us a super comprehensive run down on things to do etc. Service is impeccable. Room was comfortable, fresh and clean. Lovely to have a complimentary bottle of wine for our 5 night stay and little touches like lollies in our room. Fridge for self serve breakfasts, coffee machines, fruit to take for the day - you name it - its supplied. Location is excellent with a easy 5 minute walk to subway and easy 10 minute walk to Vatican. Plenty of dining and shopping options and area nice and safe. What more to say? Nothing except book without hesitation and we would go back any day - if we could!

Maps in hand we walked to the bridge of Angels, skirting the Vatican which is only round the …
... and hawkers are everywhere to spoil that illusion, gladiators posing for a price, a couple of carabinieri sharing an iPhone and laughing their heads off at something till one nearly tripped over a stray rock in a very Mr Bean moment and tour guides waving sticks with flags or big fake sunflowers and yelling at groups of people in all different languages. It's hard to imagine what must have gone on there so many years ago. Men fighting with lions for ...
... two bedrooms. The main living room has 15' beamed wooden ceilings with hardwood flooring - the most interesting item however is the shower - it's real small - no more than a cruise ship shower but I'm sure will do the job.
Despite the fact that the four of us were like "dead men walking" we decided to head out into the rain and look for a spot for dinner - so we started out in the direction of Piazza Navona. Along the ...
... beef flavor. The cheese was also pretty tasty. Paul and Peggy had the scallops which they loved as well.
Our lunch came to a close way too fast, but it was nice to catch up and have a laugh or two and reminisce a bit of the good old days. Peggy drove us back to the airport and we are now a few minutes from boarding our flight to Rome. I'm sitting here with fingers crossed and prayers going out to Our Lady of the Upgrades in ...
... The big ticket items for me were the Raphael rooms and The Sistine Chapel. We browsed through the long hallways of Greek and Roman statues. I didn’t recognize half of these people. It seemed as if every Tom, Dick, and Harry in ancient history had a statue made in their honor. We made our way through the room full of creepy-eyed sculpted marble and hanging tapestries. I felt like I was in a haunted house through the first half of the museum as some ...
