Where to stay in the Eternal City

Rome is divided into districts or ‘rioni’, each with its own particular charm. Take a look at the following that are favourites among both visitors and locals:

    • Monti: Some of the most important Roman buildings are located in this district, and in recent years it has become increasingly popular with young people, hailing as an artistic mecca which mixes contemporary and ancient history.
    • Trastevere: This is hands down one of the best places to work in Rome. There is an infinite number of trattorias, cafes and terraces that are perfect for a summer drink, live music and a fascinating medieval atmosphere. The Porta Portese market is a great option - you couldn’t ask for more from this neighbourhood. The Rome apartments in Trastevere with a terrace are particularly popular, and tend to be cheaper than other areas in Rome.
    • Trevi: An interesting fact about this district is that of all of the 900 churches in Rome, there are none located here! If you stay in one of the apartments near the Trevi Fountain, you will not only be right next to the most breathtaking fountain in Rome, but also other points of interest such as the Barberini Palace.
    • Vía Veneto and Ludovisi: Here you will find some of the most outstanding luxury apartments in Rome and hotels. The area is excellent for walking and the Villa Borghese park is located right next door. It is considered the luxury district and prices of terraces and restaurants are higher than in the rest of the city.
    • Monteverde:
Further than the centre, it has an irresistible charm for a romantic getaway without the bustling of staying in the most touristy areas and is a great option for a serviced apartment in Rome.

The Colosseum, Trevi Fountain and other points of interest

Most of European territory has been largely influenced by Roman empire and its culture, and this city served as a model for other large cities which is why you should book an apartment in Rome. We can let you in on some of the best kept secrets of the city of Romulus and Remus. The best places where you can indulge in traditional Roman dishes are the different "Trattorie" or "Osterie" in the city. The best are "Hostaria Romana" (near Fontana di Trevi), "Osteria Vecchia Roma" (Rione Monti), "Sora Lella" (Isola Tiberina). The best pasta dishes are "Carbonara", "Cacio e Pepe", "Gricia" and of course "Amatriciana". As for meat, "Abbacchio", "Coda alla vaccinara", "Trippa alla romana" are particularly incredible. As for vegetable dishes, the "Carciofi alla giudia", (fried artichokes) are very popular, and are typical of the Roman-Jewish tradition found in the Jewish Quarter of the city. A more modern take on Italian food are the Trapizzinos, which are mini sandwiches but with pizza dough. You can fill them with whatever you want, but the best ones are octopus in sauce, cuttlefish with peas, eggplant with parmesan, veal in green sauce or chicken alla cacciatora. And do not be surprised to see the Italians eat them on the street, it's very common! One of the best things to do in Rome is to visit the oldest pharmacy in the world found in Trastevere. It is exactly the same; with furniture, concoctions and appliances dating back to the 15th century. The Milvio Bridge was made very famous by the film "Tre metri sopra il cielo", based on the book of the same name, and has since become a mandatory stop for couples. As in the movie, couples go there to seal their love with a padlock on one of the bridge’s streetlights and then throw the key into the river. Don’t miss the famous "Bocca della verità", which is a stone medallion resting on the walls of the church entrance and is also an old drain! Its holes correspond to the eyes, and the mouth and nose are where water comes out.. Although according to legend, if someone puts their hand in and tells a lie, it will bite them! A trendy place to go for a drink at night is in the Monte Testaccio area with a lot of locals and nightclubs full of people. No trip to Rome is complete without a visit to the famous Piazza Navona. It is located where the stadium of Domitian once stood, and maintains the same form as the stadium. The buildings around the square are located where the stands once stood, and is why the square is shaped like a sports venue. Have you ever noticed it? As you can already tell, there are endless things to see in the Italian capital, but here are the essentials:

  • Colosseum, Forum and Palatine: The Roman Colosseum is the iconic building of the the city, and is located next to two other main points of interest - the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum. There are many apartments in Rome near the Colosseum that boast some of the best views all over Rome. It is highly recommended to firstly walk around the impressive exterior, in order to appreciate every detail of this construction that dates back over 2000 years. The interior is bound to transport you back in time to the era of Imperial Rome. They usually sell combined tickets for the Colosseum, Forum and the Palatine, and in some places you can buy them online. It opens from 8:30am until the sun goes down.
  • Piazza Navona: This is a true baroque masterpiece in the heart of Rome. It contains some of the most famous fountains in the city, known as the Three Fountains: the Fountain of the Four Rivers, the Fountain of Neptune and the Fountain of the Moor. In addition, it is a very lively area both in the day and nighttime. Accommodation near this square tend to have very high ratings and a fantastic location.
  • Pantheon: This is one of the oldest Roman buildings still standing. Originally built as a site to worship Roman gods, numerous artists lie buried beneath. You can find the best artisan ice creams in Rome in the Gelateria Grom, or in the Giolitti. If you want to be closest to the oldest sites, book a Pantheon apartment in Rome.
  • Trevi Fountain: Popular legend says that if you toss a coin into the fountain, you will revisit the Eternal City at least once more in your life. Do not miss when it is illuminated at nighttime.
  • The Vatican City: The sovereign state of the Vatican is a territory consisting of a walled enclave in the interior of Rome, and is the most popular tourist attraction in the city. Once you’re in the Vatican, the Basilica of San Pedro is probably the most important place to visit.
  • The Sistine Chapel: This church will leave you speechless. The spectacular fresco located in the vault, namely Michaelangelo’s ‘The Creation of Adam’ is one of the most famous works of art in history. What many visitors do not know is that the artist of the Boticelli statue or Perugino also worked on the frescos on the walls, creating the overwhelming feeling you get when you walk in. It is typical that queues exceed the waiting time, so try to visit around 1pm.
  • Spanish Steps: This plaza has a 138 steps where people gather day and night, and is a popular place for a Rome apartment.
  • Circus Maximus of Rome: It is located near the Colosseum and although there are hardly of built remains, this was where the games and races of the golden age of the Roman Empire were held, and you can still walk around.
  • Sant’Angelo Castle: We recommend visiting the exterior while walking across the bridge and moving towards Via della Concilliazione. You will have a great view of the Plaza de San Pedro at the end of the avenue where you can take great photos.
  • Piazza Venezia/ Victor Emmanuel II Monument: This is a statue dating from 1911 and was built in white marble to honour the unification of Italy and its first monarch.
  • Palatine: One of the Seven Hills of Rome, specifically the one which is closest to the centre and includes one of the oldest areas in all of Rome. The origin of the legend of Romulus and Remus is found in this place.
  • Villa Borghese: This is the largest park in Rome, and here you will find several museums alongside the Borghese gallery.
  • San Lorenzo: A popular place to go out at night time.
  • Rome Catacombs: These underground labyrinths are some of the most mysterious in the city. They were used as cemeteries under the city until the Middle Ages. You can visit San Calixto, Priscilla and Domitilia from 9am-12pm, and in the afternoon from 2-5pm.
There is something for everyone in this city - its nightlife, family feel, cuisine and long history will leave you coming back for more.
