Destination guide

Experience Rome in holiday homes to rent

With a history stretching back 28 centuries, Rome has truly earned its nickname, the Eternal City. You might have trouble finding time to take it all in: the inspiring churches packed with ancient art, the fine meals in neighborhood trattorias, the archaeological remains of civilisations past, the food, the street life and, did we mention, the food. Whether you decide to eat your days away or see a little bit of everything else, Rome vacation rentals are the perfect way to be at home in the big city.


Historic sites near holiday homes in Rome

Rome is filled with fascinating historic sites that are a must for your trip. Holiday rentals are close to places like St. Peter’s Basilica, a late renaissance church with spectacular architecture, and the Roman Forum, an excavated area of Roman temples, government buildings and squares dating back 2,000 years. Another highlight is the Colosseum, a monumental Roman amphitheatre once used for gladiatorial games.

Things to do

Sightseeing near holiday rentals in Rome

You can start your perusal of some of the world's best art at the Vatican Museums. Founded by Pope Julius II in the 16th century, the vast complex in Vatican City includes galleries, courtyards and Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel. Then again, you may want to begin with Rome's most ancient sights. Don't miss the Colosseum. The former gladiatorial arena is still one of the most thrilling attractions in town. It's just a stone's throw from Palatine Hill, one of the Seven Hills of Rome, featuring the ruins of Imperial palaces.


Things to do near holiday homes in Rome

Your Roman vacay is as much about soaking up the sweet life as it is about visiting museums and ruins. Take a cue from the locals and show up early to find the best clothes, the finest antiques or the ultimate bargain at the Borghetto Flaminio or La Soffitta Sotto I Portici flea markets. Feeling flush as an emperor? Head to Via Condotti, Rome's swankiest street, just across the Piazza di Spagna from the Spanish steps. Is the poet's life more your thing? Relax with a good book and a delicious espresso in one of the cafes nearby.


Local weather for your stay in holiday homes in Rome

Rome's Mediterranean climate brings with it cool, humid winters and warm, dry summers. High temperatures in July and August can hit the low 30s. Spring and autumn are cooler and sunny, and winter can get cold. You'll need a heavy coat in January, when lows sink toward freezing at night, but it might be worth it. You won't need to worry about staying warm if you're indoors viewing great art or eating great pasta, and you can avoid the biggest crowds and find lower rates on Rome vacation rentals.

Food & drink 

Regional cuisine in Rome

Roman cuisine shares much of the culinary culture of Italy, featuring fresh, seasonal and simply prepared ingredients like globe artichokes, fava beans, shellfish, milk-fed lamb and goat and artisan cheeses. Olive oil is used prominently in recipes, as well as white pork lard and fat from prosciutto. Special dishes are often reserved for different days of the week, so be sure to check out different recipes in restaurants near your holiday accommodation.
