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.

Location

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.

Exterior

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.

Interior

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.

Guests receive complimentary and helpful documents: 1. FAQ About Renting in Italy, 2. Helpful Information About Rome, and, 3. Our much-appreciated Restaurant list. On request, complimentary children's adventure guide to Italy e-Book.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in the Magnifico apartment for 5 nights. Every thing we needed was provided. The location so close to the Forum, Colosseum. Palatine Hill was awesome. Public transportation is right outside the door. The neighborhood feels safe and there are restaurants close by. We used the covered terrace every day as the weather was perfect. The apartment was spotless and furnished nicely. It exceeded our expectations and we would not hesitate to stay there again. Consuelo was very helpful and sweet. Communication with Pat and everyone at Italy Perfect has been friendly, helpful and organized. We used Stephano for our car service from the airport and were very pleased with the service. Thanks to all for a wonderful stay in Rome.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

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!

December in Rome

  • 5 of 5

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!

Superb location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Feels Like Home

  • 5 of 5

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.

Magnifico in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed the apartment, the location, quiet and view. Very sorry that the vines succumbed to the heat. Fortunately the little trees and shrubs are doing fine. The building has outlawed the automatic watering systems and, unfortunately, although we asked, guests weren't able to water them. The plants are being replaced. The Italy Perfect Team
