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.

Very safe area to walk at night. The apartment is on the outskirts of the city. Be sure to confirm which buses to take into the city. We needed assistance with the electricity on New Years eve and the house manger, Beatrice was very swift to respond to our needs even though it was a holiday. The terraces outside the bedrooms are wonderful especially for those visiting during the summer. Nearby restaurants offer excellent service and food. Supermarkets located nearby as well. We enjoyed our stay, thank you!

Cecilia was the most gracious hostess---prior to our arrival she ensured that we had a taxi waiting at the airport, which made it a cinch to get settled. First off, the spacious apartment is nestled in the heart of historic Rome, which meant that all we had to do to find delicious food and shops was walk out our door! The pictures don't do this place justice: huge living room with antiques and beautiful paintings, stained glass doors leading to the two back bedrooms, which both had their own bathrooms and showers! Comfortable beds and plenty of heat and hot water made for wonderful nights after spending the day exploring Rome by foot. From Cecilia's home we walked to the Pantheon, the Wedding Cake, shopping district, and even the Forum (we like to walk lol)! But the bus system is superb and there was a major stop less than two minutes from the apartment. We will definitely stay here again when we come to visit!

My sister and her family, including her 3 1/2 year old, my elderly mother, and my husband and I found this rental to be spacious, comfortable, and ideally located. There are three large bedrooms with large windows. There is a kitchen with a washer/dryer and dishwasher, as well as a separate dining/living area. The apartment is located down the hall from a few offices and appears to be a repurposed private unit of offices at the end of the hallway. However, the space is very welcoming and warm with beautifully painted ceilings in the bedrooms. The two bathrooms are both very modern and clean. The apartment is located in a lively area just around the corner from Piazza Navona, and easily walking distance for everyone (including the 3 1/2 year old child and 71 year old mom) to the Pantheon and Campo de' Fiore. There is an elevator which was very convenient for my mother and my niece. The apartment was clean and well kept. Lucia is a very gracious and helpful hostess who helped us arrange transfers from the train station and the airport. Before arrival, she gave us the option of having the beds arranged as a single large bed, or two single beds in the rooms, which was so thoughtful. Lucia's helpers who met us at check in and check out were also very welcoming and gracious. I have rented through VRBO many times over the years and was very pleased with this rental. I would definitely rent this unit again.
