Colosseum area Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + living room, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-5) in the historic center

Exclusive apartment in the heart of Rome just a stones throw away from the Coliseum, Roman Forum, Mouth of Truth, and all the major important historical sites.

The property is within walking distance to Piazza Navona, Fontana di Trevi, Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Campo dei Fiori and across the Tiber river to enchanting Trastevere, famous for its narrow streets and cozy restaurants.

The location simply could not be better as the area is one of the most famous and picturesque of the historical center, surrounded by archaeological sites, artisan and antique shops, theatres, traditional bakeries, colourful markets, designer stores, boutiques, restaurants, typical Italian cafes and winebars where you can flip away your tiredness over a good glass of wine.

Only a couple of blocks away, there is a colorful, large open market and every morning can be found fine food, fresh produce, fruit, vegetables, wine, cheese and wonderful bread.

The apartment has been newly renovated to offer elegance, comfort and convenience to the most desirable attractions of the city center.

The property is on the first floor of a 19th century historic building. After a day's sightseeing in the noise of a busy city, this is a great place to come home to. Walking through the main doors (off the street) into a lush garden full of trees and flowers, is such a pleasant surprise. Coming back here, in this oasis sheltered from the hustle and bustle, at the end of a long day gives you an instant sense of peace. The quiet found inside is unusual for this lively section of Rome. During the day, a security guard is present by the front gate. In addition to the gate (locked after dark), there are locked doors for both the complex and the apartment.

Fully renewed, it is tastefully furnished with fine modern fittings and the same remarkable equipment. Elegantly appointed with artistic and decorative features as beautiful pictures and mirrors, exclusive tapestries, cozy sofas, modern sliding doors, lamps, large wooden walk-in wardrobe.

The apartment has a very warm atmosphere. It has an entrance that leads to a bright living-room, a dining area with american kitchen, the bedroom, the bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. The sofa is a comfortable sofa-bed (King size, excellent quality), there is also a single bed. The kitchen has all modern fittings and it is fully equipped with all necessary cooking supplies.

The apartment has every comforts: air conditioned, autonomous heating, Satellite TV, flatscreen TV, FREE WIFI internet, washing machine, telephone, safety box, radio, iron/ironing board, hair dryer, Bed linen and blankets, bath towels and table linen provided.

Just a few meters from the property you'll find the famous mediaeval basilica church Santa Maria in Cosmedin (or de Schola Graeca). The church was built in the 6th century over the remains of the Templum Herculis Pompeiani in the Forum Boarium and Its bell tower is the tallest medieval belfry in Rome. In the porch of this mediaeval Church, on the south side, there is one of Rome's symbols, the so-called 'Bocca della Verita' Mouth of Truth that draws many visitors: this is a large round stone, with a grotesque face in relief with holes through the eyes and the nose, and a larger opening for the mouth.

While in Rome you may like to re-enact the scene in the film Roman Holiday and put your hand over the Bocca della Verità or Mouth of Truth which hangs in the portico of the Church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin.If a jealous lover wanted to test their partner’s fidelity, they would put their hand in the mouth of the stone river god - it was thought that a liar would have his hand bitten off but the faithful lover would go untouched.

And this 'test' is still a must for all tourists and the queue of visitors stretched right down the street, for to have their photo taken with their hand in the mouth of the statue.

It’s a fun thing to do though and everyone seemed to emerge with their arm intact - why not give it a try?

Italy is a country full of glittering treasures and Rome is its brightest jewels. I am delighted to be able to offer a comfortable and beautiful ambiance to my guests. Every amenity and comfort is well thought out and we make sure that the apartment is clean and in excellent condition at all times. I take pride in meeting the needs of my traveling friends while helping to make their stay in Rome a memorable one. It is important to me to put the needs and comfort of my guests first and I am honored to say that this is gratefully reflected back to me through referrals and returning guests. My apartment is truly a 'home away from home'.

The location simply could not be better as the area is one of the most famous and picturesque of the historical center, surrounded by archaeological sites, artisan and antique shops, theatres, traditional bakeries, colourful markets, designer stores, boutiques, restaurants, typical Italian cafes and winebars...

The apartment is right in the historic centre of Rome and from here you can walk to every important interesting point without public transport. However the apartment is very conveniently connected to any city landmark and to Airport by fast and efficient public transportation ( both buses and subway ) and you will enjoy the real Italian style everyday life.

Upon request you can book a transfer from and for Fiumicino or Ciampino

airports with our chauffeur driven transfer.

details.

Fantastic location for an unforgettable holiday in Rome!

My wife and I recently spent four nights in this apartment and we loved it. It was our first trip to Rome and we weren't sure of the best locations in the city, but this worked perfectly.

The owner, provided an airport pick up and drop off service, which reduced our stress in terms of finding the flat from the train station and getting back to the airport. She was very professional and friendly.
Veruska met us when we arrived and gave us all of the information we needed about the apartment and the building. There was plenty of room for the two of us and the nearby market made it easy to make something quick to eat before going out to site see for the day.
There is also a supermarket close the property which is open 7 days a week, has good hours and a fair selection of food (if you are one who wants to cook, etc.)
The flat is beautiful, clean, well-decorated, comfortable, and the location is close to buses and within a short walk of
Colosseum, Trastevere neighborhood, Piazza Venezia, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona and the Pantheon.
The kitchen was well-equipped and stocked with a number of basic cooking products (olive oil, salt, garlic, vinegar). There was an ample supply of jam, honey, biscuits, coffee and tea for the breakfast. It was fantastic. We would recommend this place to anyone, it exceeded all our expectations. Thank you Veruska!

We stayed 3 nights at this fantastic place. This is the perfect place to explore Rome and surroundings. The flat has a modern architecture, a fully equipped kitchen, confortable bed, good shower, tv, wifi, air conditioning. The flat is very clean, quiet, secure and it is a cosy retreat after a day of sightseeing.
The location is excellent and you can get everywhere very quickly.

The booking of the flat was very simple with a direct and pleasant communication with the owner. We received a very warm welcome and the owners where very helpfull to show us the places to visit and the nicest restaurants. They are perfect hosts, committed to their guests.

Only a couple of blocks away, there is a very colorful large in-door market, the best place to buy food in the area. Every morning you can buy vegetables, fruit, magnificent bread, cheese and cured meat... We had a great time here and we would highly recommend this place, we surely will come back.

Our week stay in this lovely apartment was definitely all we had imagined and hoped for.
All the comforts of home in one of the most beautiful cities in the world! Thank you so much for making this available to travelers! We especially enjoyed our dinner at the restaurant just outside the apartment! Very nice people and the food was awesome!
Thank you for added convenience of having the internet and a washing machine, and the shopping cart! You have really made this apartment a "home away from home". Thanks so much! We hope to return someday!

The apartment was exactly as shown on the pictures and as everyone has stated it was clean, quiet and well appointed.
The location was just perfect - central to every major site and museum while offering a complete escape from the crowd and noise.
The apartment had everything you might need, including maps, guidebooks...Internet worked fine.
The accommodations were all that you could ask for, nicely decorated and large enough for four adults.
I highly recommend this apartment!

Just got back from a visit to Italy (Venice and Rome). Searched through VRBO and found this gem of an apartment. See separate review of VRBO in Venice. Centrally located, clean, and well furnished. Owner was very quick to respond minor issues. Easy access to public transit (bus #170) takes you to Termini station. Also, they informed us there is a weekly (Sunday) flea market that is only a 5 minute walk. As well, 2 local trattoria's are very close by. One is just steps outside the apt and other one is literally around the corner. Overall, a great experience with a wonderful apt. Would definitely rent again.
