GAIA APARTMENT 3dfloorOutstanding customer service from our contact person.
PANTHEON ROMAOur host, Fabio, was very helpful. We can only give our best recommendations for both the apartment and the area.
ATTICO OLEANDRIGreat apartment, very comfortable, with modern style, fully equipped, huge terrace with great view, big supermarket very close -> nothing negative could be said. Very polite and cooperative landlord/ owner, to whom you could rely if any information or support is needed.
PALLINE 3Good location, mostly quiet and pleasant in spite of being close to the Vatican.
BOMBONIERADomenico was very helpful and he stocked the refrigerator and put fruit on the table and told us where to go eat at a good Italian restaurant. He was excellent as a landlord but as I told him I am very worried about his plumbing problems which I am sure will be rectified. I would recommend Domenico to anyone I know as he is very qualified and knows what he is doing.
TURATIA good place to rent. The apartment is conveniently located at 5 minutes from Termini station. It is very clean, bright, very comfortable and spacious. Recent windows provide an excellent seal noise. Public market opens from 6h to 14h at 2 min. and a grocery close by too. You can visit the attractions of Rome on foot. We made the return of the Vatican City on foot but also there is the metro located at just 5 min. Warm welcoming from Paola is also an asset. For the equipment, a small countertop oven could be added, I'm from Quebec and North Americans like to eat toast bread for breakfast.
Rome can be summarised with one word: art. The Italian capital is a city with a truly amazing artistic and historical legacy; a legacy that encompasses over 2000 years of history and that can be seen on its streets, squares and monuments. A visit to Rome is a must for all travellers and that’s why staying in apartments in Rome is the perfect way to be able to enjoy the city at your own pace, since there is so much to see.[See more]
What not to miss in Rome
When it comes to places to visit, the city can be divided in the Roman places and the Renaissance and Baroque ones. The most notorious Roman monument is the Colosseum, an ancient amphitheatre that has become the city’s most symbolic monument and that can be visited inside. Next to it are the Roman Forum and the Circus Maximus, as well as many ancient gates and columns. You also cannot miss out on the Pantheon, one of the oldest buildings in the city.
The city also stands out for its sculptures, especially those by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, which can be seen at Piazza Navona, although the most striking one is the Fontana di Trevi, a stunning work of Baroque art in the middle of the city that will make your jaw drop. In Rome you can also find The Vatican and the Basilica of St Peter, which contains the famous Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo as well as the Vatican Museums. The view from St Peter’s Square is also a Roman symbol and a joy to behold, and that’s where the Pope also comes out on the balcony to do mass once a week.
The hidden neighbourhoods of Rome
Outside the tourist areas are the neighbourhoods of Trastevere, south of the river, and Monti, north of it. These are more traditional neighbourhoods with more tradition, more authentic and much cheaper, ideal to relax and sample traditional Italian cuisine on one of their many terraces, also to find cheap apartments in Rome. They are also perfect to enjoy the Roman nightlife if you want to mix with all the locals.
The best time to visit Rome
Rome has its hot months between June and August, as well as that being the time it receives its biggest amount of tourists. That’s why if you want to enjoy Rome in a more quiet and pleasant way, you can also do it in autumn, since the heat and the crowds diminish and the queues aren’t as long.
Transport in and around Rome
To get to the Italian capital, you can fly to any of its two major airports: Ciampino or Fiumicino, to which all major airlines fly to. Although Rome is best visited by foot, its metro is also highly efficient if your feet hurt from so much walking. Rome’s taxis and buses are more complicated to grasp and more expensive considering the simplicity of the metro.
Popular festivals in Rome
The 1st of May is National Italian Dat, with events and concerts throughout the city. All year long there are many religious and gastronomic events, such as the strawberry picking in Campo de’ Fiori in June or the Madonna della Neve in August, a festival of great legend and beauty to enjoy during your holidays in Rome.
