Rome: Italy's Center of Ancient History

Rome is one of the most glamorous cities in the world, with architecture and art that draws crowds from every end of the planet. Contemporary trends such as high fashion are a hallmark of Rome as well. The city is filled with priceless treasures, including statues, fountains, mosaics and frescoes that adorn churches, building facades and piazzas. You will enjoy your stay in a house, apartment or villa in Rome's historic neighborhoods, with amenities such as air conditioning, Internet access and a washing machine.

Art and Museums

Galleria Borghese is a 1613 palace filled with frescoes and Baroque sculpture. A 14-year restoration allows this magnificent museum to shine with works by Bernini, Caravaggio and Raphael. The National Etruscan Museum displays Etruscan art and artifacts including bronze and marble sculpture and jewelry. The ancient Etruscan civilization dates back to 768 to 264 BC as the foundation of Italy's ancient culture. The Museo Capitolino at the Piazza del Campidoglio was designed by Michelangelo and contains many of the world's most valued ancient sculptures.

Ancient Architecture

The famous Colosseum and Parthenon are must-see destinations in Rome. These ancient ruins offer a glimpse into the past culture of Roman history and are architectural wonders that are a delight to behold. You can tour each location, and choosing a vacation home in the Colosseum area will allow you central access to The Colosseum, the Parthenon and the famous Trevi Fountain where you can toss a coin over your shoulder for good luck.

Vatican City

The Vatican is another must-see destination in the heart of Rome. As the headquarters of the Catholic Church and the home of the Pope, the Vatican is home to iconic art, architecture and the Sistine Chapel's famous frescoes by Michelangelo.

Shopping and Dining

Rome is on the cutting edge of high fashion with boutiques and couture widely available throughout the city. Dining in Rome is a sublime experience with the best of Italy's fresh foods offered in restaurants and outdoor cafes until late in the evening. Pasta, pizza, seafood, chicken and Italian wines fill tables with cheer. Complete your meal with a steaming cappuccino for a satisfying end to the day. Piazza Navona is a wonderful central area of the city that is surrounded by restaurants and fountains. This vibrant area of Rome gives you a central home base to explore all aspects of this spectacular city.

Street Food

Rome's street food is a wonderful way to experience authentic Italian cuisine on the go. Pizza, porchetta, panini and gelato are available from food carts for a quick bite and an introduction to the wonders of Italy's food culture.

Weather

Rome's moderate temperatures are provided by the warming and cooling influences of the Mediterranean Sea. Summers are very warm and humid and busy with tourists, so for a more relaxing trip, you may enjoy a visit in the fall, winter or spring. The city is beautiful in any season and although precipitation is possible, Rome enjoys comfortable winter weather. Prepare for potential changes in the weather by packing a weatherproof jacket and a few pieces of warm clothing.

How to Get There

Rome is served by the Fiumicino Airport, which is located a few miles outside the city. You can travel by train from the airport to the heart of the city and then take a cab or ride the bus, subway or local train to your destination. Rome can also be reached by train from locations throughout Europe, and touring the surrounding countryside can be very pleasant when driving a private or rental car. The Roma Pass” is a convenient ticket that provides several days of free transportation in the city along with museum passes.

Close to transport links (there is a tram stop to Trastevere rail station 2 minutes walk away, also a taxi rank 3 minutes away), there is a supermarket and a convenience store very close by plus a tourist information booth 2 minutes away. There is a pizzeria right on the doorstep (good for eating in or takeaway pizza) plus loads of really characterful restaurants 5 or 10 minutes away around the Santa Maria in Trastevere church. We walked to all the major attractions in Rome, including the Coloseum and the Vatican, with no problem. The apartment has real character and is well suited to a family of four or two couples and having two bathrooms was handy. It is on the third floor with a few flights of stairs but it wasn't an issue and there is a small 2 person lift. The owner was very welcoming and helpful and spoke very good english. The area could get a little noisy with passers by but no more than is usual in a large city and it was all part of the charm in the lovely Trastevere area. The local church bells meany we didn't need an alarm clock!! When we return to Rome I would happily stay here again.

As many have said, the apartment is ideally located adjacent to Campo de Fiori, one of the great public spaces in Rome. It has a great neighborhood feel and is very convenient to everything. The apartment is also peaceful, especially the living area and master in the loft. I noticed that the front bedroom was quite a bit noisier both with street and gate noise but it is also easier to hear the church bells which I thought was nice. But as great as all that is, what makes this property so fabulous is Lucia. The apartment is outfitted with everything you could possibly need and beautifully decorated (by Lucia). She met us when we arrived, answered all our questions, bought us pizza, helped us with directions, tickets, information, transportation; it was unbelievable. I have never met a VRBO owner who was more generous with her time and talents. It you are lucky enough to secure this rental for your time in Rome please show Lucia the same generosity and graciousness that she exudes. Thanks again Lucia!
