The Prati neighborhood is known for its wide boulevards, fine architectu...re and great shopping. The streets are wide, room for trees, vehicles, trolleys and pedestrians and the scale of the architecture reminds of us Paris but with an Italian flair, less groomed, more street markets.
This is the best neighborhood in Rome for real shopping. Along Via Cola di Rienzo there are fashion stores for shoes, leather and clothing that offer the latest fashions without designer prices. Good grocery shopping and gourmet food, too. And, lots of street vendors that are a dream for our teenage fashion mavens, Italian styles, budget prices.
This is also close to the Vatican Museums, walking distance to Castel Sant'Angelo and St. Peter's basilica. Piazza del Popolo is a 15 minute walk. We use the subway from the Ottaviano stop to go everywhere else, 2 stops, 4 minutes to the Spanish Steps. The area is also really well served by buses and a tram.
This fine building from 1830 is handsome inside and out. It is on a corner of a half-moon piazza with a park at the center. The trees are high and provide a nice view from the apartment windows. With all the planning that went into the laying out of Prati in the early 1800s.
The apartment was renovated completely in 2009 and laid out with modern living in mind. The entry has a beautiful antique red table that shows off the antique tortoise-shell mirror above it. Straight ahead is the living room and to the right a long hallway reaches the far end of the apartment.The living room overlooks the piazza with a high window. Clean, white modern furniture highlights Italian taste. The lounge chairs, both signed, are wonderfully comfortable. Known for their modern design in the 1950s, you have to remember that the function preceded design. A long hutch is of equally modern, clean and pleasing design. Its twin is in the dining room. The large, flat-screen television has satellite reception for some English language programs.
Frosted glass sliders separate the living and dining rooms. The modern, minimal design theme continues here with a glass-topped table that has expansion at both ends. Red leather chairs for six diners. Table will seat eight, bringing chairs from the kitchen.
The three bedrooms are the master bedroom that has an ensuite bathroom with enclosed shower. The tilework in all the bathrooms is modern and very pleasing. The master bedroom with red accents has a wall of closets and a small private balcony.
The "blue" and "green" bedroom each have two twin beds, plenty of closet space. Both have a view of the green piazza below.
There are two more bathrooms, one with jacuzzi tub with shower over and the other with enclosed shower.
One additional guests can be accommodated on a roll-away bed.

Rigoletto apartement is an amazing propertie. Big, beautiful and spacious, very well located in Pratti with supermarkets very near and just a short 10 minutes walk to Vatican City. We stayed a family of six adults and were very comfortable. Daniela Read more

We loved our stay in Rome in this beautiful apartment. We felt right at home. It is in such a perfect location too, close to the Metro and a short walk to the market and many wonderful restaurants. We would stay here again if we get the chance to return to Rome.
Thank you for making our vacation perfect! Read more

Our Excellent adventure in Rome!
Left on 10/30/2013 for a stay in October 2013 | D. Etzel
Five of us from the same parish in Fort Worth, Texas, traveled to Rome for 10 days. The apartment was very spacious, clean, comfortable, great location, easy walk to Vatican, taxi stand, grocery store, shopping. Fully stocked kitchen allowed us to have breakfast and dinner in the apartment and enjoy "together" time. Pat was wonderful to work with in the booking process. She was also most helpful when we tried learning to use the taxi system! Stanisleo greeted us and got us familiar with our surroundings. Beautiful view from our 6th floor. We left every morning for our day's adventure and returned in the evening feeling as though we were truly home! Loved the elevator - felt like we were living like the Romans! Read more

Greatest stay aug 2013
Left on 08/21/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Simon
Great appartment. Top notch. Nicer than our home. The large 3 bedrooms and the 3 bathrooms made our life so much easier with our 3 kids. Location was quiet, a bit off the action but made for a nice walk every evening to help burn calories from the gelato. A lot of nice accesories that made our stay even more confi. Just a little more sport channels would have made it Italy perfect. But then the wife would have not appreciated as much...

excellent setup for our party of 6; 2 couples and 2 kids. very clean apt, nice appliances (we bought a Nespresso coffee machine at home after using the one in the apt). Rome was hotter than average when we were there and the aC worked like a charm.
Try the Lemongrass Gelato shop located right at the Metro entrance. Also, there is a very nice pastry shop one block before the Metro station. It's only a door at street level then down a flight of interior steps, open early and late, lots of local customers, well-priced and excellent quality. Can't remember the name but you can't miss it as you walk to the Metro station.
The Vatican is less than a ten minute walk away and use Metro or taxi for other sites.

Our party of 6 adults had a wonderful time in Rome. The apartment was spacious, comfortable and truly a home away from home. We used public transportation (subway buses] all around Rome and we found our neighborhood to be a perfect place for all the services and conveniences everyone want when away from home. The kitchen in the apartment was well equipped which made it very easy to cook for a large group. The whole experience was wonderful and memorable for everyone! Thanks!
Rigoletto Italy perfect
Left on 07/16/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Anne
We really enjoyed the apartment Rigoletto, it was huge and there was plenty of room for the five of us. The three bathrooms were all very nice with great showers, very clean and plenty of towels. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was very functional. The building is really nice and in a great location, we enjoyed the area and had cappuccino every morning a block a way. There are several nice restaurants in the area, we also went to a chinese restaurant one night about two blocks away. There was a handy market a few blocks away and a florist right out our front door, a great location.
We walked to the Vatican a few times, it was about 15 minutes at a leisurely pace, the train station is about a 10 minute walk. We took the train a couple of times as well. We usually took a taxi back to the apartment at night, it was about 12 euros, only twice did we have to take two taxis (5 of us traveling together) but we usually had easy access to taxis that could accommodate 5. There is a taxi stand about 10 minutes away, we walked down one morning at 6:30 and they were there.
The apartment greeters were very helpful and showed us all the appliances, a map and the local area. We enjoyed fireworks the first few nights out the window, not sure what they were for but they went off about 11 and it was awesome. We would definitely recommend this apartment and Italy Perfect, we had a great time and look forward to returning in the future. We looked at several apartments before choosing this one, we were not disappointed. Read more

Tried Something New -- It Was a Great Idea to Rent This apartmen
Left on 06/18/2013 for a stay in May 2013 | Kate
We travelled to Rome this spring with 5 adults. We needed three hotel rooms for a week. We travel a lot, but this was the first time we have considered renting a place in Europe. We chose the Rigoletto for price and location, but the fact that Lisa and Pat Byrne were so responsive to my emails and phone calls made me feel better about renting an apartment so far away.
The Rigoletto was so much more spacious than we would have expected although the video helped a lot to visualize the rooms. Everyone had enough space to get away', watch TV or use computers. Internet was astrong connection. The apartment is on a quiet square several floors up. It was quiet, very clean and had renovated bathrooms.
We used Stefan who was recommended by Lisa and Pat for the trip to and from the airport. He also drove us to Villa d'Este outside Rome and on our final day, made a few stops for us in Rome we had missed. Our greeter met us on time and any small problems were addressed promptly by phone or email. The mosquitoes arrived in Rome when we did, so it is important to keep the windows closed.
The location was excellent, safe and a short walk to the Vatican. Rome is such a wonderful city for walking , we found the location of Rigoletto outside the center of the city very enjoyable. Good supermarket around the corner. We recommend the Sicilian restaurant around the corner.
We highly recommend this apartment and will rent through Lisa and Pat again in other cities.
Thank you, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. The Italy Perfect Team.
We were delighted with this comfortable, well-appointed, well-lo

With a grocery store right around the corner, and everything we needed in the kitchen, we relaxed around the dining room table for meals; also a great place to play cards. The apartment was spacious, meticulously clean. We were met promptly by Stanislao, who showed us how to operate all equipment, and was available for any questions that might arise. The building was secure, and in a nice neighborhood for walking, close to good restaurants and the Ottoviano metro stop.
Christmas in Rome
Left on 02/01/2013 for a stay in December 2012 | Maureen
Our family of seven had a fabulous "Roman Holiday" !! We loved staying in Rigoletto! With three large bedrooms and three bathrooms, we were all ready to head out the door exploring at the same time! The apartment is in a great neighborhood with an excellent restaurant down the block and a large "american style" grocery store across the street. Thanks for the recommendations on taxi service and tour guides, both were wonderful. Finally, we cannot forget our greeter, Joseph, who helped us navigate not only the apartment but also managed to FedEx some packages back to the States in a very timely fashion.
We would highly recommend not only this apartment but also the great services provided by Italy Perfect. Thank you !!

We absolutely loved our stay at the Rigoletto apartment. It was spacious, clean and quite modern on the inside (even though the building is older), and surpassed expectations overall. It was great to have a full (and reasonably well stocked) kitchen as well as a washer and dryer in the apartment. Having a grocery store literally two minutes walk away meant that we could easily get whatever food we needed, and could enjoy a leisurely breakfast at home before heading out to enjoy the city. The size of the apartment also meant that we could truly relax when we returned "home" in the evenings, because we had room to spread out instead of being cooped up in a hotel room. We liked the quiet, residential neighborhood and didn't particularly mind the fact that there aren't a ton of restaurants in the area (although there are a couple if you're desperate).
Pat at Italy Perfect was a pleasure to work with. She was extremely helpful with recommendations ahead of the trip, and helped make this a great trip for us. I highly recommend Italy Perfect and this particular apartment. Thanks again Pat!!!
Authentic Experience in a Residential Neigborhood
Left on 06/21/2012 for a stay in June 2012 | Steve S
This apartment is huge. We were a party of 4 and a party of 6 would still find this to be very spacious. It is located in a very nice residential section of Prati. We became regulars at the neighborhood pizza place around the corner. We also took advantage of the grocery store located less than 1 block away. The building is a step back in time as you use an old school cage elevator to access the 6th floor apartment. While it looks old, the elevator is fast and quiet and our greeter managed to organize 5 people and many bags into the space so that we could all make it in 1 run. The doors to the apartment are huge and have really heavy duty locking mechanisms. The pictures on the website don't do this place justice. The apartment has everything you may need and the level of comfort and detail is extremely impressive. The owners take great pride in this apartment and it shows. They have thought of everything in terms of cooking, entertaining and comfort. They have an extensive music collection and a small number of Dvds that have the proper regional coding. The wifi connection is very fast and stable and they even have a PC and printer/copier should you need it. If you are a walker, you can reach the Vatican in 25 minutes at a casual pace. If you want the tram, figure a 15 minute walk. For the cab stand, figure an 8 minute walk. There are many neighborhood (non tourist) dining options nearby. Italy Perfect provides a great deal of helpful information and are very professional and responsive. We highly recommend them and the fantastic Rigoletto apartment.
Great apartment/Great value
Left on 06/17/2012 for a stay in May 2012 | Julie
Beautiful fully renovated apartment. 3 large bedrooms and 3 extra large bathrooms. Large, well stocked kitchen, large dining room and living room with TV, WiFi also. Great size for our family of 7. Helpful that it had a washer for our week stay in Rome. It is a 10 minute walk to the Ottaviano metro station, and from there you can get any place in the city on a short Metro ride. Check out the bakery on Via Barletta, right before the station. Excellent and cheap. 20 minute walk to the Vatican. Family oriented neighborhood, not touristy. Lots of good restaurants, shopping and grocery stores near by. This apartment is a great value. Check in was easy and they were very helpful about the apartment and neighborhood.
