The Eternal City contains history dating back 3,000 years. It may be surprising for some tourists to have the Coliseum be directly across the street, or St. Peter's Basilica reside next to their hotel, but some accommodations do offer prime locations. From viewing Michelangelo's Renaissance architecture, to exploring the Baroque area of the Piazza Navona where artists and vendors are located throughout, accommodations are steps away from much of the action.

The Vatican St. Peter Bed and Breakfast consists of three spacious guest rooms decorated with hardwood floors and white walls with either orange, pink or red accents. Rooms offer private bathrooms, Internet access and satellite TV. The bed and breakfast is approximately one mile from the entrance to St. Peter's Basilica. The Hotel Sant' Anna, a 16th-century palace, includes marble floors and fountains in the courtyard. Guest rooms consist of warm yellow and blue hues, mural paintings throughout and wall-papered ceilings. Rooms provide living areas and private furnished balconies. Breakfast is served daily in the privacy of your room. Hotel Sant' Anna is only a three-minute walk to the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica.
