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.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
The Magnifico apartment provided a wonderful way to enjoy Rome. The location is very close to the Coliseum and we enjoyed the view of it every night! We were often on the patio with a glass of wine, tucked away in our very own apartment seeing all the crowds and feeling very thankful for the wonderful place to relax after a long day of sightseeing. The water is hot and the air conditioning worked so well. The living room and dining area is lovely and our only regret was that it was so warm and humid during our stay in Rome that we often stayed indoors with the lovely coolness after a hot day of sightseeing. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom good size. The windows in the dining area provided a lovely view of the Rome skyline and we saw some beautiful sunsets from there.

The location is near the Monti area, the oldest part of Rome, and there are many wonderful restaurants to dine at. Bring good walking shoes as it's a long, long block from the apartment to the Via Cavour and then once you cross that you'll be in the Monti district. It's only a 5-10 minute walk so easy to get to but after a long day of being on your feet you may want to dine in with a meal of meats and cheese from the Elite Market which is close by on Via Cavour. We found great prosciutto, sausage, mortadella, and all kinds of cheese at Elite. It also has any household products you may need and regular grocery needs. Oh, and did I mention wine? Lots of good choices at reasonable prices.

L'Asino d'Oro, Via del Boschetto 73, in the Monti district was our favorite restaurant -- in fact we ate there twice!!! Outside seating and air conditioned inside with lovely imaginative food. A foodie paradise!

Italy Perfect was wonderful to work with, from making the reservation to providing all kinds of information about restaurants, shopping, taking trains in Italy and good basic travel information. The check in process was so easy and the person who met us was very personable. We got their email and phone number in case we needed to contact them during our stay but that wasn't necessary as everything went very well, We highly recommend Italy Perfect and plan on renting from them again!

Loved this apartment! Fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Rome and we were unsure about the location. We couldn't have asked for better. A short walk to the metro and a wonderful grocery store. The Colosseum was so close to walk but the apartment was set back a bit so we had peace and quiet sitting on the huge balcony.

The apartment was much more spacious than the pictures show. There were just the two of us and we kind of rambled around in it:) It was light and airy. The air conditioning worked great on the one day we needed it but mostly we kept cool with the great breezes coming in the windows.

Italy Perfect was easy to communicate with. Our greeter (Consuleo) spoke excellent English and was at the apartment when we arrived. The building was secure and the neighborhood was safe. We didn't experience any problems but I am sure if we had Consuleo would have handled them in a professional manner.

We would definitely stay again or recommend it to a friend!

Fantasy Fulfilled

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our trip of a lifetime, enhanced by our stay in a truly magnificent apartment. While the photos on Italy Perfect's website led us to the apartment Magnifico, it was absolutely breathtaking in person. when we walked onto the terrace and saw the Coliseum and surroundings, we literally gasped. Breakfasts and late afternoon wine and cheese on the terrace were super peaceful and romantic. The apartment itself was beautiful and comfortable. There was a cozy tv room that had our favorite American news station broadcasted in English so that we could keep up with world events. The bed was extremely comfortable and on the cooler nights we opened the bedroom door to the terrace while we slept. We found a gourmet market on Via Cavour and stocked up on bread, cheese, breakfast items and coffee and made daily use of the American coffee maker-thank you!

All in all, a perfect stay and the accessibility of Pat and the Italy Perfect staff and greeter, Consuelo, insured that we were in extremely good hands at all times. Gratzie!

Location and more

  • 5 of 5
To have your morning coffee (or anything else) on a large terrace overlooking the Colosseum, the Arch of Constantine with the incredible umbrella pines at the horizon has been a privilege. Was that recurrent experience that tied together superbly a visually very rich week. On a practical note; very clean and comfortable, air conditioned, very good beds, remarkable design. Right behind the building, in a small piazza is San Pietro in Vincoli Basilica where you can find Michelangelo's Moses. From there, descending some stairs you get to Via Cavour that has numerous grocery stores and restaurants. We preferred to cross the street and get "lost" in the streets behind, part of Monti neighborhood where you can find restaurants with infinite more character and charm. Best carbonara in town at La Vacca M'Briaca on via Urbana.

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.
