Create an itinerary including Stanze di Raffaello
At Stanze di Raffaello, wonder through the former papal residence and begin to grasp the genius of one of the greatest High Renaissance artists. The four rooms on the third floor were painted floor-to-ceiling by Raphael and his students between 1508 and 1524. The work was commissioned by the Pope Julius II, who wanted to appear superior to his predecessor and rival, Pope Alexander VI. Pay attention to the famous fresco depicting the "The School of Athens"--painted on the wall of pope's library--which portrays Raphael and his fellow contemporaries, including Michelangelo, as Greek philosophers.

  • In my humble opinion Raphael's Rooms are even better than the famed Sistine Chapel and if I get a chance to see again and again I'll do it with no hesitation.

  • Хороший дворик внутри дома. Комнаты небольшие, выходят на шумный проспект, реально шумный, окна спасают, но не полностью. Хозяин устроил скандал из-за 5 минут при чек-ауте - будьте внимательны ко времени выезда 🤣 P.S. Dear owner. I carefully checked timing for that day - I admit we missed your message day before about leaving at 10.00 sharp and I insist that we had to leave your apartment at 10.13 having only 10 minutes to pack our bags after phone conversation with you. Please check the time of your call. Regards, Sergey
  • Couldn't recomment enough! The place has great location - 5min walk to the vatican city. There are many restaurants, bars and stores nearby. We had breakfast included - at a cafe right across the street which consisted of a coffee and a croissant. Would definitely recommend the place to others visiting Rome.
  • Скромные апартаменты, не дорого. Очень чисто, современный ремонт. Рекомендую.
  • Sito sin recepción, pero coordinan por email (necesitas tener conexión) para entregarte las llaves. El sitio es muy lindo, aseado y bien cuidado. Hacen descuento en el desayuno en.una cafetería cercana, pero no nos gusto porque solo tiene panes dulces, nada de sal. El wifi puede ser lento o a veces no funciona. No te ponen toallas nuevas a diario, jabón, shampoo, etc. ponen solo el primer dia. Pero es un hotel agradable y Giuñio es muy amable y servicial.
  • Posto e location molto bella La posizione fantastica Personale molto gentile Weekend fantastico
