Are apts in Trastevere or Vatican area too far from all the center sites?

Jump to last reply

We're taking my teenage sons to Italy for the first time in August - we have 4 nights in Rome before we take the train to Sorrento/Pompeii/Amalfi. I've been looking at apts and found many in Trastevere and in Vatican area. They're lovely and the neighborhoods seem more local than touristy but they also seem a bit far if we're coming into the major sites every day. Are there particular streets/areas of these neighborhoods that would be better than others?

Any thoughts? I'm looking for 2 BR with full kitchen and a/c and sat/cable TV larger than 75 sq meters. If you have any recommendations.
