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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
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.

PERFECT ROME ACCOMMODATION

  • 5 of 5
Magnifico was the perfect Rome apartment. Location cannot be beaten for access to the ancient ruins. We loved the view of the Colesseum and the arch over a glass of wine in the evening - it is to die for! The apartment had everything we needed (although we didn't receive the beautiful welcome basket that we received when we stayed in a Paris Perfect apartment last year!). None the less it was magnificent. We cannot recommend it highly enough. Our stay in Rome would not have been the same without Magnifico!

COLOSSEUM-VIEW PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5
We were thrilled with this apartment, aptly named "Il Magnifico." We loved how light and bright the place is, with great views from all windows. And the terrace was such a delight, filled with fragrant, blooming citrus trees and jasmine, roses and hydrangeas, and more--and the view is directly onto the Colosseum and Constantine's Arch. We enjoyed wine, breakfasts, and some dinners al fresco. The sixth-floor apartment, reached by elevator, is beautifully and comfortably furnished. From this location we walked to the Vatican, Spanish Steps, and everywhere else we explored, but the building is conveniently right next to a Metro stop for those who want to ride. The location, in Monti (which the New York Times has called "Rome's Hottest 'Hood") is very fun with good cafes, restaurants, food shops, and boutiques.

We can't say enough about how thoroughly professional and helpful the folks at ItalyPerfect are, starting with the fact that the listing is accurately photographed and captioned and well described. They provided copious advance information about Rome (including restaurants) as well as about the apartment (from WiFi instructions to directions for all the appliances). This information was duly repeated by the company representative, Consuelo, who kindly met us two times: once to let us in to drop off our bags even though the place was still being cleaned, and again a few hours later to give us our tour. ItalyPerfect recommended we use Rome Value Transfer when we arrived at Civitavecchia, which we did; driver Rocco emailed us in English, was waiting at the appointed time, and gave us a rate cheaper than a taxi. We called him again for our trip to the airport when we departed.

This apartment is great for two people and could hold a third in the twin-bed room. So it would be good for families with one child. We can't wait to go back to Italy and try another ItalyPerfect property. Meanwhile, we have already booked a London rental for August from sister company LondonPerfect.

PERFECT ROME APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.

SPECTACULAR AND COMFORTABLE APARTMENT IN ROME

  • 5 of 5
The Magnifico apartment was absolutely perfect for our stay in Rome. Its crown jewel is definitely the spacious terrace with its stunning view of the Colosseum and the Arch of Constantine, and with lots of seating and a table for outdoor dining. The apartment is equally lovely and spacious inside, and was clean and well-kept. The apartment is in the perfect location for walking over to the Colosseum and the Forum, and it's also easy to catch a cab to other sites just outside the Metro stop for the Colosseum. There are lots of excellent restaurants within an easy walk. We were also surprised at how soundly we slept, given the noise of a big city--the master bedroom is very quiet and comfortable (though you should ask for the foam mattress topper if you don't like a firm mattress). We had reliable internet service throughout our stay and especially appreciated the washing machine (and, by the end of long days of walking, the elevator). We did not have good luck cleaning dishes in the dishwasher and so ended up washing all our dishes by hand, but that was a very minor inconvenience. We were especially happy with the service provided by Italy Perfect: Pat was incredibly helpful in answering our questions and offering advice, and our greeter, Consuelo, was also very friendly and helpful. We recommend this apartment and Italy Perfect enthusiastically and without reservation, and we would definitely stay here again if we return to Rome.

GREAT APARTMENT! PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from a 12 night stay at "Magnifico" apartment. It was wonderful!
Stefano picked us up at the airport and took us back at the end of our stay. He is an
excellent driver, prompt and courteous. We highly recommend using his services.
We arrived at the apartment and were greeted by Paul--what a nice man. We were immediately struck by how light-filled and pleasant the space was, fabulous views.
Spacious and comfortable. A cashmere throw and beautiful damask sheet were folded on the sofa along with 2 large damask covered pillows. An elegant touch and perfect for making yourself comfortable on the off-white furniture.We put a towel on the oversized and very comfortable ottoman, so as not to soil it's light linen cover. Bedroom and bath area was also spacious, especially for Europe. Satellite TV! Only a few stations, but most welcome! Converter/adapter also welcome. We used the compact and efficient kitchen several times, getting groceries from Elite on Via Cavour and veggies from Campo di Fiori outdoor market or a small shop on a side street in the neighborhood. If you plan to do any cooking, bring some tongs. Also, bring a supply of zip lock bags in a couple of sizes--great for storing must-have cheeses, prosciutto, etc., as well as snacks and leftovers. 2nd. bathroom was welcome, after we got the toilet to stop running--the mechanism in the tank is corroded and needed to be manually worked up and down several times to loosen the calcification. Washing machine worked fine. Turn on the electricity at the plug. Use 1/2 coffee cup of soap powder; put it in the left side of the pull out dispenser. Takes about an hour to do a load. Big cities have soot. We kept our airplane socks
by the terrace door, wore them out there. Loved the neighborhood aspect of the
apartment. We took the metro and buses a few times, but mostly walked everywhere.
The only negative is the uncomfortable terrace chairs. Gorgeous 200 sq. ft. terrace with fabulous views--4 miniscule hard wood folding chairs you had to 'perch' on and 2 canvas-type sling chairs that left your feet dangling in mid air and your head way back. No leisurely relaxing on the terrace, unfortunately. Some cheap plastic/pvc chairs with arms like we saw at many sidewalk dining areas would have been most welcome. Booking agent Pat Byrne at Italy Perfect gave us reams of wonderful information and tips. Most helpful and professional. Highly recommend her services and this property.
