7 mins on foot to the Metro (tube)

2 beds , 1 double . one single and a double bed settee in lounge.
Basic kitchen fine for preparing breakfast
good loo and shower room.
It was brilliant for three of us.
When in Rome do as the Romans do,,,
This apartment was found as a new entry , on the site. I had trawled the rentals for ages and this was perfectly situated for us.
We knew we would be in with the locals away from touristy hotels, but so close to the Metro , local mini markets and restaurants.
Our host had arranged a taxi from the airport (40 Euro) and met us on the street as we were dropped off. There is a security gate into the quadrangle where all the apartments are. Another door into a communal hall then the choice of one flight of stairs OR a lift to the 1st floor
. Clean and tidy , linen provided. The kitchen has a hob and oven and proved adequate for our needs , we had continental breakfast and ate out lunch and dinner times.
The location is brilliant for walking into Vatican City. Prepare yourselves for touts and north african street sellers. The metro line is one block away and proved so easy to use giving access to the main sites. We used the 1.5 Euro tickets which let you travel for up to 100 minutes.
The local shops have fresh fruit, bread and all the necessary foodstuffs. Because you are living with the locals the prices are very reasonable. A litre of red wine in a carton for under £1.80.
An added bonus to us was a chinese restaurant directly opposite, which proved useful when we became Pasta bored.
Lots of tripadvisor recommended eating places nearby.
The apartment is on the 1st floor overlooking the side street and we soon got used to the noises that come with it..
My only worry after this report is that I shall never be able to book it again, We loved it .
