Demand for rental apartments in Rome jumps ahead of conclave
Increased flexibility and lower prices than hotels a big draw05 March, 20:05
According to casavacanza.it the increased flexibility and often lower prices of rental apartments compared to hotels are strong elements of appeal to tourists coming to the city during the selection of the new pope.
"In the last few days, not only has the number of apartments available for short-term lets increased, but owners of apartments which have been on the site for months have recently rushed to modify their descriptions, pointing out their proximity to the Vatican or their closeness to public transport," Francesco Lorenzoni, the head of casavacanza.it said.
Lorenzoni also said that many prices had been raised, bringing them to high-season levels.
