Enjoy Timeless Views in Classic Luxury

Lounge on the expansive terrace while the icon of Rome, the Coliseum changes with time of day, season and weather. Views are stunning.

Concierge, driver and tour services.

Location

Perched on the Colle Oppio, one of the Seven Hills of Rome, this apartment overlooks the Roman Coliseum, as close as it is possible to live. In less than five minutes, you can walk to famous St. Peter in Chains home of Michelangelo's Moses, Santa Maria Maggiore, Nero's Golden House (Domus Aurea), the Roman Forum, the Arch of Constantine, the Coliseum and the charming village of Monti within in the city.

Exterior

The building delights in its spectacular location, inviting in light and reveling in the views available in many directions. Built in the 1960s and has a cool, marble lobby and modern elevator. The residents include distinguished actors, politicians and industrialists. A doorman during business hours provides security and will gladly help you as he can with directions; he speaks some English.

Interior

The sweep of the living room is enhance by the long windows onto the terrace and the long white sofas. Cool and clean, it is filled with museum-quality art. Beautiful antique side pieces balance the modern layout and furnishings.

The glory of Magnifico is the long terrace, about 200 square feet with a direct view of the Roman Coliseum and the Arch of Constantine. So close, you are practically inside! Lined with gardener-tended plants and flowers, there is room on the terrace for dining and lounging while you watch the light change on the view of a lifetime. An awning is in two parts and can shade you from the sun or the rain.

The living room has an L-shaped sofa backed by antiqued glass. One wing of the sofa overlooks the terrace and has a Coliseum view. A glass dining table for six adjoins the living room. Next to the living room is a tiny 'den' for reading and watching TV. Fine Persian carpets are arrayed across the parquet floor.

The master suite has a moderate sized bedroom with ample closets and a French door onto the terrace bringing in light and the scents and colors of the garden on the terrace. The bed is queen-sized, mattress on strapped frame, the usual in Italy.

The master bath is distinctively and exuberantly tiled in a checkered pattern of tan and brown. A contemporary basin-style sink is joined by the usual fixtures. There is a shower over tub with the typical hand-held shower head that can be placed into a receptacle on the wall for a standing shower.

Beyond the den is the kitchen in. There is a large refrigerator with freezer, gas stove top and oven, microwave and electric coffee maker.

A kitchen balcony connects the kitchen with the small bedroom. There is a modern washing machine with drying racks out there. Few Italians have clothes dryers; you put your clothes on the drying racks to dry.

Between the kitchen and the tiny second bedroom is a very small half-bath bathroom with sink, toilet and bidet.

The second bedroom is fine for one person. It is small and simply furnished. Cabinets above the bed for storage, no closet. There is a flat-screen television in this room. This bedroom gets some traffic noise from below, light sleepers take note.

Guests receive complimentary and helpful documents: 1. FAQ About Renting in Italy, 2. Helpful Information About Rome, and, 3. Our much-appreciated Restaurant list. On request, complimentary children's adventure guide to Italy e-Book.

What a great apartment! We chose this apartment over others because of the location, air-conditioning, WiFi and the terrace view. We stayed here 4 nights and loved that it was so close to the Colosseum, public transportation, restaurants and a grocery store. The apartment was very clean and nicely furnished. I would highly recommend this apartment to everyone!

Wonderful apartment with spectacular view

Il Magnifico is situated very near the Coliseum and Roman Forum. It is a beautiful, spacious and well-appointed apartment on the 6th floor of a modern block, with elevator. Its main feature is the large terrace with table and chairs, overlooking part of the Coliseum and other ruins. Beautiful at night. Lounge area is very comfortable and kitchen fairly well-equipped. Bus stops quite near and a few good restaurants in immediate area. Street mainly quiet at night. Highly recommended.

Exceeded our expectations

We stayed in the Magnifico apartment for 5 nights. Every thing we needed was provided. The location so close to the Forum, Colosseum. Palatine Hill was awesome. Public transportation is right outside the door. The neighborhood feels safe and there are restaurants close by. We used the covered terrace every day as the weather was perfect. The apartment was spotless and furnished nicely. It exceeded our expectations and we would not hesitate to stay there again. Consuelo was very helpful and sweet. Communication with Pat and everyone at Italy Perfect has been friendly, helpful and organized. We used Stephano for our car service from the airport and were very pleased with the service. Thanks to all for a wonderful stay in Rome.

A perfect location and an even better apartment

  • Submitted: Oct 23, 2013

The Monti is the oldest part of Rome and we love this location. It's a bit removed from the mass of tourism in the more trampled parts of the old city. The view over the Coliseum, the Arch of Constantine and the Temple of Venus and Rome is splendid. We sat outside every late afternoon on the terrace and watched modern Rome and ancient Rome converge. The apartment is perfectly situated for us, a short walk to the Oppian Hill, an easy 5-10 minutes walk to the Palatine and the ancient Fori, Quirinale, San Clemente or Santa Maria Maggiore. We even discovered a short cut to the Spanish Steps that took about 20 minutes on foot. Campo dei Fiori is about a 25 minutes walk and Piazza Navona and the Pantheon around 30 minutes. The layout of the apartment is extremely comfortable and even though the Via Degli Annibale below can get a lot of traffic, the apartment is up on the 6th floor and stays very quiet. The water is always hot, the AC is cool and quiet, the wifi is fast, the kitchen is very accommodating and the mattress in the bedroom is the best we've ever slept on. The apartment building is very secure and there is a concierge on duty till 2pm during the week. We love the Elite market on via Cavour for groceries or there is a Carrefour Grocery behind the Coliseum on Via dei Santi Appostoli. There is great pizza at Li Rioni on via dei Santi Quatro Coronati behind the Coliseum or Alle Carrette on Via Madonna dei Monti. We often dined at Le Tavernelles on via Panisperna, ate some amazing food at L'Asino d'Oro on via Boschetto and Urbana 47 on via Urbana and our favorite gelateria in the Monti "Fata Morgana" in the Piazza dei Zingari. There is also the best Sicilian granita at Ciui Ciui on via Urbana. Thank you Italy Perfect for a perfect holiday rental.

Magnifico was more than Magnificant

  • Submitted: Sep 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2012
My husband and I stayed there in November 2012. It was wonderful! Views of the Colosseum from one side of the apartment and of the Victor Emmanuel Monument from the other. Our greeter was wonderful and very patient. She left us wine, pasta, bread etc which was great as we arrived a little late having gotten lost and hiring a taxi driver to lead us there.

Easy to shop or to eat in nearby cafes. Great balcony. Quiet building. I asked our host when I made the reservations if the view of the Colosseum would match the Mena House views of the Pyramids. He bragged that it would. He was right!
