We rented a small one bedroom apartment in an older building about 15 min. walk to the Vatican Museum. It is very cute and decorated in IKEA so we feel right at home. Here are the photos of the apartment. It is 3 stories up and so we are getting some extra workouts everyday…lol We have an extremely nice landlady Laura who got us in on time and has been very responsive to any requests. If you look carefully you will see a small washing machine in the bathroom ( we have to air dry but it is nice to have some clean clothes). It is a great place to plan our adventures in Rome. More about those adventures tomorrow.
You can see more about the apartment at http://www.bbplanet.com/apartment-tutti-pazzi-per-roma-house-rome_s39080/en/ — some of the furniture has been changed but there are some nice pictures.
