ROME ITALY PERFECT MAGNIFICO APARTMENT
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.
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.
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.
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 calm and complete with a large shower, modern sink and fixtures.
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. Air conditioned.

This apartment is offered by Italy Perfect. We are a family business with a mission! We want you to love visiting Italy as much as we do. We are sisters Lisa and Pat Byrne who lived in Italy in our youth and now travel there frequently for business and pleasure. We offer only short term rentals that we carefully hand pick for their locations, furnishings, amenities, and that we can personally recommend and would want to stay in ourselves. We travel frequently to inspect, and usually stay in, the rentals we represent. We select vacation rentals that offer charm, good locations, cleanliness, quality furnishings and hospitable welcomes. We count the number of steps up to the property, check the size of the refrigerator, shower, listen for noise, inventory the kitchen equipment and even inspect the mattresses. This is our most important point of differentiation which sets us apart from many other vacation rental firms. Even with careful advance research and personal connections, we still choose to not represent more than 50% of the properties we visit. And, once we agree to represent a property we regularly re-inspect it to ensure our standards are being met.

Spacious apartment, with fantastic views of Coloseum and Roman Forum
This is a very spacious apartment, with a wonderful terrace overlooking the Coliseum and Forum. The views are amazing at all times of the day and night. The property is close to great restaurants and shopping, and has easy access to the metro, tram and buses. However, this is an older apartment with some issues, including an odor coming from the drain in the second bathroom. The second bedroom is very small -- would accommodate only one person -- and given its proximity to that bathroom, it would be unpleasant to stay there. The host said they were going to fix the drain issue, so if you are considering using the second bedroom I would check before I booked.
Thank you so much for your review. We are delighted you appreciated the size, location and views. It is true that second bedroom is as pictured, for one person. That bathroom has been fixed! The Italy Perfect Team
Home away from home
Very nice apartment, tastefully decorated, had everything we needed to enjoy our stay in Rome. Greeter was prompt, helpful, and very thorough in showing us how everything worked. She even arranged a large taxi for us and our considerable luggage on our departure day. We enjoyed many meals on the beautiful terrace. Metro station, bus stop, and taxi stands all very close. Thanks for a great week!
Thank you Leslie! The Italy Perfect Team
December in Rome
We truly loved the apartment and location and would rent the place again in a heartbeat! Everything was wonderful; the location for sightseeing, the metro and cab station in front of the coliseum, plenty of day eateries and nice restaurants at night. A small but well stocked grocery was just a couple of blocks away. But the best thing was the view of the coliseum from the lovely terrace; during the day and at night.
We aren't wealthy people and usually stay in apartments. We decided to go all out since we were taking our 87 year old Aunt on her first international trip. We were truly rewarded in our choice because of apartment views. We had cocktails every night on the terrace while looking at the coliseum and we just happened to stay during the full moon, which made it more magical. Trust me when we say this apartment is well worth it. It is magnificent!
Thank you so much, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay! The Italy Perfect Team
Magnifico is perhaps the ideal property for a first-time visitor to Rome, especially if a major focus of your desires are convenience and antiquities. The feeling of seeing the Coliseum just by stepping onto the deck is wonderful.
The property is extremely comfortable, and had everything we needed or wanted. The neighborhood is very lively, and if you're looking for solitude in the city, this isn't the place. But if you like activity in a city setting, this place fits the bill. It's mostly quiet at night. There is a university nearby with the attendant student noise at night, but a fan provided in the bedroom takes care of that.
The Monti neighborhood just to the north is packed with shops and small restaurants. I highly recommend this property for folks who enjoy walking and exploring. It's easy to get to most everything of interest.
Beatrice, our greeter, was kind and knowledgeable. She is wonderful to deal with.
I highly recommend this property.
Thank you Michael, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay! The Italy Perfect Team
Feels Like Home
This apartment is one of the reasons we come back to Rome every year. We feel like it's our place. After a long day of walking through the ancient city it's the best place to come home to.
Thank you so much, we look forward to welcoming you back! The Italy Perfect Team
Magnifico in Every Way
Our family of 3 had 6 nights in the most amazing apartment in Rome - it was indeed Magnifico! The weather was hot (July) so the AC was much appreciated, and we enjoyed every moment of our stay. The terrace was The Best, and we spent lots of time there admiring the view. Easy access to taxis (a stand just in front of the apartment) was really nice. Great restaurants nearby, very friendly staff. I could easily spend all summer here, and it was the highlight our of trip. Italy Perfect is awesome - communicative and easy to work with, and everything went smoothly. Highest recommendation.
Thank you for your lovely review, we are pleased you had a wonderful stay. The Italy Perfect Team
