Recently my wife and I went to Rome prior to our cruise and stayed with Danny and Ema at La Cupola del Vaticano. What a introduction to Rome!! The location of the B&B is in the middle of Rome with access to all the sites. Vatican City is 500 meters from the property, restaurants, shopping, transit all within walking distance.... More

La Cupola is is located almost on the walls of the Vatican. While to an Australian the position, three floors up in a residential building, is unconventional, even obscure, the hotel itself is a hidden gem! We were in a spacious, well appointed room with excellent amenities. Our room actually looked out on the Cupola del Vaticano, but the double... More

Easy walk to the Vatican and St. Peter's Basilica. Close to public transportation and restaurants. Plentiful shopping. Comfortable rooms. Pleasant and knowledgeable staff. Old fashioned elevator a novelty. Multiple doors add to security.

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
