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.

The apartment has everything you need for a very enjoyable stay. A short walk from the Colosseum and the Forum. We were very happy to find a plenty of shops at few meters from the apartment like supermarket, pharmacy, restaurants, laundry shop, pizza take away and so on. Bus stop in under the apartment and metro station just few blocks away The reception by the owner, Alessio, was excellent. He was lovely, charming and he very helpful. We would highly recommend Alessio and his apartment to anyone wanting to stay for a short or long stay in Rome!

                                                                                                      All the pictures provide a great idea of what this property has to offer! There was a market and produce store right across the street and we walked to the Metro every day. St.Giovanni Basilica is very close too. We walked to the Colosseum from here - no need to do the Metro - it would have taken just as long as our walk. Raffaella met us at the house (after arranging our ride from the airport and back) with her husband. We got the keys and that was it. There is a big book case with all sorts of travel books and Rome books as well as a map of Rome and lots of business cards of things close to the house. We stayed with our 4 kids and there was plenty of space. The master bedroom is big, and therefore has a king size bed AND a single bed. We also had the crib (provided by the owners!) in the master with us. The other room has a bed that our 2 boys shared. We could have put all the kids in the bigger room if we wanted privacy but didn't. Each room has a TV with kids movies as well as documentaries and movies - in English and Italian. Be warned the bathrooms (all over Europe) have a smell. We ended up closing the doors and leaving the window cracked when we were gone for the day. NOT anything against this place - its something with how they do their plumbing or something. The showers were great, but know there are no tubs. Kitchen is small on counter space but the table was plenty big for the 6 of us. There was only one knife (I could find) and it was serrated and not to great, but we only made dinner 1 night. The others we ate out or heated up leftovers. Fridge is big. There was a toaster and electric tea pot (for heating water). There was also olive oil and salt and pepper. Raffaella also had a stroller and baby backpack 9along with the crib and some baby toys) there so we didn't have to pack and bring those things from home….a big help! We have already passed this on to some friends who are planning a trip to Rome. Had a great time and will always try to find a place like this before staying at a hotel again!
