Instituto Maria SS Bambina S. Pietro

00120 - Città del Vaticano (RM)

About the Instituto Maria SS Bambina S. Pietro:

In what can only be described as prime real estate, the Istituto Maria Santissima Bambina is a spectacularly located within the Leonine Walls and across from St Peter’s Basilica. Even more spectacular is the outlook from the convent’s roof terrace which has such sublime views of the piazza, the Basilica and the buildings around the square, that a little ‘Pope spotting’ is definitely a possibility.

The kind and welcoming nuns offer guests an authentic, homely experience in simple but well-appointed guest rooms equipped with all necessities. All meals are available if required (lunch and dinner must be pre-booked) and a well-furnished living room and the amazing roof terrace are comfortable places to relax.

As the convent is located in the Vatican extraterritorial area of the Holy See, no tourist taxes are applicable.
