About Nicolo Busacca
I was born and grew up in Rome, after a couple of years in London as a pr manager for Italian clients in the food industry and in Lausanna (Switzerland) where I set up my own business in the food sector, I decided to come back to Rome and to move into the Food & Hotellerie field as a professional training consultant. This big jump is due to my great gratification in warmly welcoming people and let them feel as if they're in their own home! Usually I'm always opened and available to show them around, the area and the city, trying to be a reliable reference point during the whole stay. This because I believe in networking built upon passion, welcoming my hosts as special guests, trying to do my best to guarantee each time a positive and unique experiece.
Why Nicolo Busacca chose Quartiere XIII Aurelio
The apartment is in a family-owned building, and our desire is to provide to each host not only a simple accomodation structure but personalized services with a unique warmly and exclusive feeling.
What makes this Apartment unique
The family Palace was built on the ruins of an historical private villa owned by the Cardinal Msgr Albani during the 17th century. The property enjoyes an antique roman fountain in the middle of the internal garden, all sorrounded by trees and original marble roman capitals and statues.

An absolute must! This is the best we have ever seen.
This rental rates higher than 100 percent! From the beauty of the apartment, to the location, to the cost. We had everything we needed and more. The host, Nicolo, was waiting upon our arrival. He gave us maps, information, tips on where to travel and restaurants.
The neighbourhood was safe, residential, and people were friendly.
We were near stores, the subway, buses, restaurants, and there was even a cash machine near by.
You must see the property to believe it. The garden is beautiful, the rooms spacious and very clean. The kitchen had all we required and there was even a washing machine for laundry.
I would highly recommend this property to couples, or families. It is a genuine taste of Italy, and I will return again.
Thank you Nicolo to you and your family for making us feel so welcome. This was truly the best homeaway rental we have ever had.
We home to return soon.

Convenient and Lovely Apartment in Rome
Our family-parents and two teenage daughters very much enjoyed our stay. The fountain in front was delightful and we greatly appreciated the A/C as we escaped the heat of Rome. There is a bus stop almost directly in front of the gate to the apartment and a subway stop just at the bottom of the hill. Transportation was very convenient. There is a market, pharmacy, and restaurants within a very short walking distance.The apartment is part of a very old family home and has lovely marble floors. Nicolo is very helpful and easy to contact. He helped us a lot with figuring out transportation and directions. Should we return to Rome, we would definitely stay here again!
A wonderful place to stay near the Vatican in Rome
The Vatican House Apartment was the perfect place for my family's first visit to Italy.
We stayed in a spacious two bedroom, two bathroom apartment with a big living room with a large sofa and TV. The same room also held a dining table that comfortably sat all four of us. The modest kitchen included a coffee machine, microwave, small refrigerator, gas stove, sink and counter. Outside of the kitchen door we had a sunny, private garden with seating and a table.
The large bathroom had a laundry machine; we hung the laundry out to dry on the hanging racks in the garden. Everything was very clean.
The apartment's neighborhood is great. The 49 bus stops right outside of the gate and the Metro Linea A Baldo degli Ubaldi station is a 5 minute walk away.
There is a great pizzeria directly outside the gate, a caffe/bar on the corner, a full grocery store within a short walk and great restaurants near by. Our favorite restaurant, Trattoria Sora Pia (check Trip Advisor) was suggested to us by the owner, Nicolo.
Nicolo is the best host. He was very helpful in providing instructions to the apartment, information about transit, suggestions for tourist attractions and local spots.
Our family's goal was to have an authentic Roman experience. We did exactly that and Nicolo was very much a part of the whole, positive experience. He acts more like a friend than a business owner. We were very impressed.
I encourage anyone looking for an authentic do-it-yourself Roman experience to book at the Vatican House Apartment. We will be suggesting it to all of our family and friends.
Thank you Nicolo, ciao!
Brilliant apartment. Excellent host
The apartment was spectacular but it was the little touches the owner provided that made is special. Chocolates in the fridge, special coffee.
The beds were very comfortable. We were lucky to enjoy the gardens and catch the sun. The owner was very friendly and couldn't do enough to ensure we had a great stay.
We booked the apartment for our family trip to Rome. Nicolò was a wonderful person to deal with, and in addition to give us directions and suggestions he helped us arrange transportation from and to the airport when we arrived and departed.
The apartment is very well located, very close to bus stops and just a short walking distance to the metro. If you don't mind a little exercise you can even walk to the Vatican. Within a block distance you find a neighborhood grocery store, a cafe and a pizza place. A bigger supermarket is just a couple blocks away and there are nice delicious restaurants in the area.
The apartment is very clean and comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and having the garden is a delight, just having your morning coffee outside before starting your day is quite an experience.
Having two very spacious bedrooms with good closet space and the two bathrooms allows everyone to be relaxed and not bump into each other all the time.
We really had a wonderful experience staying at Nicolò ' s apartment and we recommend it !
The property is perfect, both for those looking for a real taste of life in Rome and for those looking to be at the center of the touristic hub. The two neighborhood restaurants recommended by our host, Nicolo, are excellent and it is fun to be in a place where you can tell customers are neighbors and friends. Access by bus or metro to the Vatican and historical center is hassle free and you can be anywhere in 15 minutes or less. The apartment is extremely comfortable, with all the amenities. It does fit 6 people as announced, by I would recommend that 2 of them be younger kids that do not mind sharing a sofa bed (mine were a bit older and though they ended up sleeping well, they initially resisted the idea of sharing a bed...teenagers, you know...) But the absolute BEST thing about the property is Nicolo, our host: perfect English, a perfect gentleman, extremely helpful with recommendations of places to go and things to do, and with arranging our transport to the airport. We could not speak more highly of him. We are hoping to return soon!

The area is also home to several foreign academic institutions including The American University of Rome and John Cabot University (both of which are private American universities), the American Academy in Rome, the Rome campus of the Thomas More College of Liberal Arts, the Canadian University of Waterloo School of Architecture.
