The apartment itself is wonderfully and surprisingly quiet, especially considering it's so near the Vatican and lots of other tourist attractions. We were able to get most places on foot, but the subway is close for anyone who'd rather not walk. The rooms are spacious and very clean, and the lady who takes care of the apartment is amazing. She gave us a map with lots of nearby things written out, told us the best places to eat, how to get around, and was available by phone in case we had any more questions. I can heartily recommend it.
