As you can see from the interactive Google map on our location page, the Hotel Alimandi Tunisi Rome is located literally in front of the entrance to the Vatican Museums - thus on the edge of the Vatican City state which occupies a large portion of the west side of the River Tiber and is surrounded by, to the north, the upper class, leafy suburb of Prati, and to the south, the trendy and historic quarter known as Trastevere.
The Vatican Museums, including the Sistine Chapel, are of course the largest in the world and would probably, it could be argued, hold the most precious collection of historically significant artefacts anywhere on Earth; though in the deepest realms of the Vatican City, only the high ranking members of the Holy See really know what the conspiracy theorists hypothesise.
The Vatican City state needs no introduction and the same goes for the magnificent Basilica Cathedral of St Peter - or San Pietro as he's known here - only that St Peter's is an unforgettable sight to behold and that between the church, the museums, the Sistine Chapel and the piazza, you should reserve at least one whole day, preferably two or more, just for this.
To the east of the main entrance to St Peter's is the Vatican's protective fort, Castel Sant'Angelo, which sits of the river bank and is said to be connected to the Pope's private residence by a secret tunnel.
Down the river bank you'll find the aforementioned quarter of Trastevere - one of Rome's most characteristic inner city areas, where clusters of hundreds of trattorias, bars and restaurants are wedged on top of one another in the cobbled, marble-faceted streets.
