Plucked straight from your typical Italian reverie comes this picture-perfect home in the heart of papal Rome. Just a thirty-minute wander to the Vatican City and its glorious St. Peter's Basilica, this location is in a quiet and friendly neighbourhood with a local vibe. Back home, it's a real crowd-pleaser, despite not having a conventional lounge seating area. Come together around the reclaimed wood dining table – complete with elegant ghost chairs – and map out the day's tourist itinerary over a hearty breakfast. It's a well-kept, clean and comfortable space with heaps of Italian passion and charm. Walking around the apartment, you'll notice all the bedrooms come with grand four-poster beds and William Morris floral wallpaper prints that we really loved. Last but certainly not least, you'll have access to a private terrace – we could think of nothing better than watching sunsets out here with a glass of Barolo in hand. Plus, your host Giorgia, really has all the traits you’d want from a host – a keen eye for design, a professional attitude, but also a friendly one. If you’re lucky, you might get a little taste of the best wines from Puglia sent over.
