Eros Apartment

A new apartment is almost ready!
2014-01-08 15:39:54

One of our favourite owners is preparing a new apartment and it seems that it will be extraordinary!

The apartment will be probably up to 3 people, it's located 400 meters from San Giovanni and 1 km away from the Colosseum, very close to a metro station. It is in an old building from IXth century and its old-style architecture features (arcs, high brick ceiling, columns) are not being changed which gives the apartment a unique style. It has 47 sqm. We are sure that the furniture will be kept in the same extraordinary style, just like other apartments of the same owner:

Eros

Flying Cupid

The grand opening is planned on the mid-February. One thing is sure- it will be a very romantic apartment, perfect for couples.

We will keep you posted!

5. Vatican Inspiration Apartment

Colorful and cosy apartment next to the Vatican City. It's a great choice for couples and groups up to 4 people. It is located in a beautiful green scenery and it has 2 rooms, a bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen. It's an economical choice when you compare it to other apartments in the zone.

6. Colorful Rome and Apartmen Caesar in the heart of Rome

Both of the apartments are on the same, 6th place. Colorful Rome is a very spacious and simple apartment, located next to the Colli Albani Metro Station, it's perfect for groups up to 7 people. Caesar on the other hand is located in the very center of Rome but unfortunately the owner is leaving Rome and we will not be renting this apartment for tourists anymore in 2014.

9. Guglielmo's Apartament. Vatican and Claudia's Rooms. Vatican

The Vatican City's surroundings are very popular among Polish tourists. Guglielmo's Apartment has 2 rooms and it's perfect for groups of 4 peple. Claudia's Rooms is a typical Bed and Breakfast. You will get a cosy room and a breakfast in the morning. Claudia is a very warm and cheerful person- she will answer all your questions and help you find your ways in Rome.

10. Exclusive Apartment Vatican's Towers and Margherita Apartment

Both of the apartments are right next to the Vatican City and they're both for up to 7 people. Also, both of them have an amazing view on the Vatican City.  Margherita Apartment is a relatively fresh offer and we are happy it has already found a way to your hearts. Exclusive Apartment Vatican's Towers is with us since the beginning and it's doing great.

Electing a new Pope
2013-02-27 16:54:41

"On February 28, Pope Benedict XVI will resign the papacy and the Vatican will set about electing a new Pope by Papal Conclave. According to many newspaper reports it has been almost 600 years since the last time a Pope resigned – what they haven’t mentioned is that it’s been even longer since a Pope has voluntarilyresigned.

In 1415 Pope Gregory XII resigned as Pope in an attempt to end a long running split in the Catholic Church. (...) It has actually been over 700 years since a new Pope has been elected by the Papal Conclave in these conditions. In 1294 Celestine V was the last Pope to voluntarily resign his seat in the way that Benedict XVI did on February 11, 2013.

It’s hardly surprising then, that the timeline surrounding the procedure for electing a new Pope this coming March is little vague. Usually the Vatican observes a 20-day mourning period before the election of a new Pope. This period was traditionally used to collect the Cardinals and to thoroughly de-bug the Sistine Chapel for any listening devices. But this Pope didn’t die, so what next?

On February 28 2013 at 8pm Benedict XVI resigns as Pope. The next step will be to hold a Papal Conclave to elect a new Pope. Historically this was a time during which the Cardinals were locked into the Sistine Chapel and adjoining buildings until they could agree on a new Pope. Back in the day, their food became more and more basic as days went by, until eventually they were surviving on just bread and water – cruel perhaps, but maybe a little more understandable when you learn that it took 33 months for the election of Pope Gregory X before these rules.

This all changed in 1996 under Pope John Paul II though, and more comfortable arrangements prevailed at the election of Pope Benedict XVI when the Cardinals were given comfortable accommodation within the Vatican. When they meet in March 2013 then, the College of Cardinals will be staying in a complex of 131 furnished rooms. They will be shuttled to and from the Sistine Chapel by bus, although they will not be allowed to speak to anyone else during this time.

No Cardinal is allowed to vote for himself, and in order to be elected, the new Pope must have a two-third majority plus one extra vote. The new Pope must be under 80 years of age and not every Cardinal must vote. When Pope Benedict XVII was elected, this process took two days and four votes.

When the new Pope is elected, white smoke rises from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel. Since the smoke isn’t always discernably white (a fact which once led to a very confused Vatican Radio station announcing the election of the new Pope a day early) the bells of St. Peter’s Basilica will also ring out.

As the Papal Conclave will take place in the Sistine Chapel in March, we are expecting closures there, although the Vatican has yet to announce the dates or the extent of closures.

The hope will be to have a new Pope in place before Easter 2013. The most important event on the Catholic calendar, Holy Week begins on Sunday March 24th, with Easter Sunday falling on March 31st. It goes without saying that the Pope is central to all the major celebrations."

Ice-cream in Rome!
2012-09-26 16:23:33

Since ice-cream in Rome is one of the best in the world, we have decided to give you a little hint on how to choose your favourite flavor. 

Nocciola = hazelnut, Noce = walnut, Castagna = chestnut, Mandorla = almond, Cannella = cinnamon, Crema = cream, Fragoline di bosco = wild berries, Macedonia = fruit salad, The Verde = green tea, Cioccolato Fondente = dark chocolate, Cioccolato Bianco = white chocolate, Cioccolato al Latte = milk chocolate. Other buzz words: Cono = cone and coppa = Cup

Whipped cream (panna) is for free in Rome and at the end of your order you will always get asked if you want some. Remember to say SI or NO. 

Enjoy!
