My housband and I just came back from our trip to Rome and we had such a great stay at this B&B. It is perfectly located - just few steps from St.Peter's square (we could actually see it from our room's window). Piazza Navona is also short walk away. There is also a bus stop for bus No 64 very...

We had a wonderful honeymoon at this B&B! We came for the Sposi Novelli during the June 3 General Audience with Pope Francis. Valter and Chiara's home is less than 300 yards from St. Peter's Square and the Sposi Novelli entrance to the Colonnade-- the location was perfect! When we arrived, Chiara greeted us outside and showed us into the...

I am so pleased we came across this B&B! It was the perfect location less than a 5 minute walk from the Vatican and from the bus stop for the bus that goes into the centre of the historic city.

There are two things that make All Ombra del Cupolone absolutely wonderful. The first is the location. Looking out your window you see St. Peter's, and it is an easy two minute walk to the Vatican. The location is AMAZING. The second thing that makes this place so special is its hosts. Valter and Chiara, a delightful father-daughter team, are...

We just concluded our stay at this wonderful B&B. We have never had a more pleasant stay in Rome! The room and bathroom were very clean, the mattress was comfortable and the location was key for us, as it was right next to St. Peter's bascilica. Because it is on the more unsuspecting side of the Vatican, it was very...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Bed and Breakfast "All'ombra del Cupolone" is an activity well underway in the heart of Rome, just 50 meters from Piazza San Pietro. The apartment is so very close to the famous and overwhelming Basilica , just as it is very close to the Vatican Museums, which are then inevitably to visit. Date then the central position are easily reachable on foot many other monuments such as Castel Sant'Angelo, the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican Pietà by Michelangelo and the elegant Via Ottaviano,but are not far away even Trastevere,Piazza Navona,Campo dei fiori and the Phanteon.The apartment is situated in one of the most quiet areas of Rome.The bedroom is at least 16 sq meters,so is rather wide,besides every room has a private bathroom. The furniture is new and one of the bedrooms has antique oak parquet flooring. From two of the bedrooms you can see the Holy Father in the celebration "Angelus" from his balcony window. The apartment is recognized by the Rome Tourist Board. We would be placed to welcome you in our house, which is a little jewel from which you will be able to discover the unique atmosphere of Rome. ... more   less
