Located directly on Piazza Venezia, popular attractions are within a few minutes’ walk. NUMA VICI's units span 1,000 square meters and are designed to a high standard. A flexible, fully digital check-in and check-out via smartphone and an international NUMA guest support team around the clock ensure a contemporary travel experience. Workspaces with fast internet connections and fully equipped kitchens allow easy working at NUMA VICI, which is ideal also for business travelers and digital nomads.

"As a cosmopolitan metropolis, the Italian capital offers joie de vivre and charm for millions of travellers from all over the world. With NUMA VICI they can now find a contemporary temporary home in a prime location," says Gabriele Coen, Director Real Estate Expansion, NUMA Italy. He adds, "For property owners, real estate developers, and investors, NUMA's hybrid model, which allows easy and flexible switching between short- and mid-stay, offers an attractive, low-risk profile. We are looking for more properties in prime locations. For Italian hotel operators, the requirements have grown enormously in times of Corona. The high cost-saving potentials can be existentially decisive through the digitalization of internal, operational processes. NUMA offers internationally proven and easy-to-implement solutions here."
