Staying at Residenza Madri Pie - in Rome

If you're looking for a peaceful guest house, very close to the Vatican, with religious connections, then Residenza Madri Pie where we stayed on our recent visit to Rome may be for you.

The Madri Pie religious society was founded in the 18th century with the aim of educating people from all social backgrounds and it has active missions in Peru. Their guest house is situated five minutes walk to the west side of St Peter's square on the less touristy side of the Vatican, in a more residential neighbourhood. As my mother said, we could practically wave to the Pope from our bedroom window.

What a unique experience to have in Rome! This seems like a real charming place, hidden from the typical touristy places in the city. It seems simple yet luxurious, moderately priced, and its convenient to St. Peter's square. What more could you ask for with accommodation in a normally expensive city?

Once again, great pictures here...for me, it really shows the hospitality of Italians that I experienced when in Genoa, Italy.
