The Aurelia Vatican Apartments complex of luxury short term self catering accommodations in Rome takes its name from the Via Aurelia – one of the principal roads leading out from the city walls since ancient times and named after the great Emperor Marcus Aurelius, who presided over the last days of the Roman Empire’s golden age.
Located in the green belt of Rome, here in the Valle Aurelia neighborhood you’ll enjoy a fresher and quieter environment than more central areas, yet public transport links you to the historical center and Rome’s most beautiful treasures – of which there are many.
Arguably the most obvious, and conveniently also the closest of Rome’s attractions is not technically part of Rome. The Vatican City State is located on the west bank of the River Tiber and a short distance away from the Aurelia Apartments. One metro stop away is the entrance to the Vatican Museums and one further will bring you to Piazza San Pietro and the magnificent cathedral of the same name, otherwise know as St Peter’s Basilica.
