Luxury Bed & Breakfast Borgo in the centre of Rome, between Vatican City and the Tiber River.
Since 1950, the inhabitants of the Borgo live north of the Passetto, where the quarter retained until recent times its popular character. Several high prelates live there: among them, Pope Benedict XVI, who had been living in Borgo Pio for more than twenty years before his election to the Papacy.
South of the Passetto the quarter shows quite another face: there now exist only some offices (mainly belonging to the Vatican), an Auditorium, and the huge complex of the Hospital of Santo Spirito, which after more than 800 years continues its mission. The only link with the past are the souvenir shops that stand on Via della Conciliazione.
The district has always retained a strong connection with Christianity and two major events hit the Borgo during the last years. In 2000, the Jubilee caused an invasion of pilgrims from all over the world. Here you can find many Luxury Bed & Breakfast Borgo located just a short walk from Saint Peter's Square and now available throughout the year. In 2005, during the weeks between the death of Pope John Paul II and the election of Benedict XVI, the rione could bravely stand the impact of millions of pilgrims coming to Rome to give homage to the dead Pontiff.
