We are located in the neighbourhood of Prati which is one of the original twenty-two rioni of Rome, a list it joined is 1929 as Prati, Rione XXII. The Prati district is elegant and beautiful: located on the other side of the river Tiber from the historical center, it mixes residential streets and commercial ones and borders with Vatican City, which you can easily reach from here.
It is a lovely neighbourhood and a great one if you want to go shopping in Rome; on the right side of Tiber the commercial street, that is, the Via Cola di Rienzo.This street runs between the Vatican or more precisely the Piazza del Risorgimento on the west and the Bridge Regina Margherita on the east. Crossing this bridge you'll find yourself before long in the Piazza del Popolo. There are Metro stops (Ottaviano and Lepanto) just a couple of blocks north.
Prati is also a great area if you love architecture as there are beautiful buildings here with early XX century architecture almost unique in Rome!
We are few steps from the main sites of interest in the city such as Campo di Fiori, Castel Sant' Angelo, River Tiber, Piazza del Popolo, Piazza Navona, Pantheon.
