Review 272: Underground Viaggi, Pearl of Via dei Gracchi


Review by Gerard from UK

2bed/1bath apartment near the Vatican, Rome


June 2002, 5 days


Close to the Vatican. 4th floor of a large old Roman Palace. Nearby restaurants and a supermarket and a Metro, bus and tram station closeby made this a very convenient location. Very safe area and the apartment was security first class.

Nearby Amenities

All within walking distance, some almost opposite.

The House/Apartment

Typical old Italian building, the apartment was clean and tidy with a well equipped kitchen with all one would need to cook etc. In good decorative order. One of many apartments but very quiet.


No garden.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

See previous remarks. There is a sitting area and the kitchen has a table and four chairs for eating and drinking area.


We only cooked breakfasts as the restaurants were close and reasonably priced.

Problems or Bonuses

Bonus was without doubt a pickup and return to Rome airport (FCO) and the agents invited us to their house for a typical Italian meal.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

Yes they spoke good English and after pickup at the airport showed around the local streets (shops etc).

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

Yes without doubt, that is why I am taking the trouble to write this review.

Things to do in this area

Vatican and the castle St Angelica and close to a very good transport system and walking distance to the river. Try any of the little restaurants in the area. Just be careful of the coffee bars charge to sit on the pavement.


Contact Moaro on his e mail for instant information and questions as he replied quickly to all our requests. Four of us stayed there and all were very happy!!
