Places to stay in the Eternal City

Choose from many apartments in central Rome in the Italian capital and discover the history of the place. Centuries ago, this was a city that dominated the entire Mediterranean coast and a large part of Europe, hence why it played a key role in the history of the continent that we know today. We certainly wouldn’t be speaking the languages that we have today without its influence! The ancient capital of the Roman Empire still retains all evidence of a glorious past - so what are you waiting for? Do as the Romans do and follow our guide on where to stay and find the best in apartments to rent in Rome, Italy, where to eat, what to do, places to visit and essential activities if you’re travelling with children. If you’re thinking of travelling around, one of the best routes to take is between Rome and Florence by train. We recommend that you see Rome in 3 days and then spend a couple of days seeing Florence. We also recommend that you visit cities such as Naples, Bologna and Pisa, or in the north with Genoa and Milan. 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:

  • Rione Monti: A stone’s throw from the Colosseum and the Fori Imperiali, this is one of the most beautiful areas of the city, and is full of bars and lovely little haunts to spend magnificent evenings in Rome. The area between via Nazionale and via Cavour is particularly special, and it has many 19th century artisan shops and has some magnificent views over the Piazzetta della Madonna dei Monti and the via dei Serpenti. 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. If you’re looking for self catering apartments in Rome city centre, this could be the right neighbourhood for you.
  • Trevi: Here you will find the Trevi Fountain which is probably the most famous in the world. Staying in an studio apartment in Rome here among its small streets would give you the opportunity to enjoy the fountain during quieter hours away from the mass of tourists that during the day block the view! An interesting fact: of the 900 churches in Rome, none are found in this district!
  • Trastevere: This is the most romantic district of Rome, on the opposite bank of the Tiber. It is ideal for an evening aperitif, in one of the many streets or in Piazza Trilussa, which in the evening comes alive and is populated with street artists making for a truly magical atmosphere. This is hands down one of the best places to live for short stay apartment rentals 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.
  • Pincio: The Pinciano district is the ideal place to stay for those who love art and culture. It is located near Villa Borghese, the park that, thanks to its museum, is a mix of nature, relaxation and art that you can not miss. If you are looking for luxury apartments in Rome, you certainly won’t be disappointed here.
  • Monteverde: Here is another important park, Villa Pamphili which is the largest in Rome. Located on the Gianicolo hill, it is one of the quieter neighbourhoods and houses some of the most beautiful Liberty buildings in Rome. It is the right place to relax and enjoy breathtaking views of the city. Further out from 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 serviced apartments in Rome for a short stay.
  • San Lorenzo: This is one of the busiest areas of Rome, and is located between the Esquilino district and the Tiburtino district. It is much loved by young people for its nightlife and its affordable prices. Not far from San Giovanni Il Laterano, is a concentration of local bars which often have live music and are a stone's throw from Termini station and the University, which makes this district populated by students from around the world.
  • Prati: This is the best place to stay near the Vatican. Despite the volume of tourism, it is a quiet neighbourhood and from here it is easy to get to St Peter’s Basilica. It is also one of Rome's favourite districts for shopping lovers!
  • Parione: Staying here means you will be a stone’s throw from Piazza Navona, as well as a short distance from Campo dei Fiori and the Pantheon.
  • Flaminio: This district is a short distance from the Olympic Stadium and the most important sports facilities of the city, as well as from Ponte Milvio, the love lock bridge of the city. If you’re looking rent an apartment in Rome for a month, we recommend this location.

What to do in the Italian capital

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 during your stay in an apartment in Rome, 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. Apartments in Rome near the Colosseum are the perfect option if you're looking for a terrace and the best views across the whole of Rome and we have the best ones here. 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. Apartments near the Vatican Museums are the best option for you if you want to discover the art and history of the Vatican, and simultaneously avoid long queues by staying as close as possible.
  • 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: Apartments near the Piazza di Spagna and the Spanish Steps are a fantastic choice if you're looking to stay in a vibrant and stylish area with plenty of shops and restaurants, and a wonderful place to enjoy with a gelato in hand both day and night. This plaza has a 138 steps where people gather day and night.
  • 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. Nearby is a popular location for Rome apartments.
  • 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.
