This special neighborhood just across the river from Piazza del Popolo (5 min walk) has many attractions. This street is one block from one of the best shopping streets in Rome, Via Cola di Rienzo that also has cafes and restaurants along its length. The neighborhood was developed in the late 1800s and early 1900s with wide, tree-lined streets reminiscent of the boulevards of Paris. Romans and visitors appreciate the proximity to the popular historical center while being able to escape the crowds in the narrow streets. It is five minute walk to the Lepanto subway station.

Concierge, driver and tour services. Apartment staff are available for additional housekeeping and laundry services.

The apartment is on the 3rd Floor North American designation, 2nd Floor European designation; the elevator starts one floor approximately 20 steps up from the entry level.


The grand entrance shows many of the fine elements found throughout the apartment, beautiful floors, large windows, good light, fine art, elegant furniture and space.

To the right of the entrance are the public rooms, the large living room, dining room and kitchen. The living room has two areas, a parlor-like entry with chairs, table and tall bureau with a hidden television and the second area has facing sofas and antique side-pieces. Two large windows overlook the neighboring garden. Looking up at the high ceilings, you find artistic plasterwork with many pretty discoveries.

The dining room, also bright from a large window, also has a beautiful, hand-blown Murano glass chandelier and lovely golden Chinese panel. The table seats eight.

Across from the dining room is a large, brand new, high quality kitchen. It has a complete set of appliances and cooking equipment. It also contains a washer and a dryer.

On the other side of the entrance is an L-shaped hallway that passes the fifth bedroom on the right, then also on the right a small hallway that leads to a single bedroom and bath. The next room on the main hallway is the largest bathroom. Turn right in front of the master bedroom door, the floor turns to warm wood and passes three bedrooms on the left and the third bathroom on the right.

Bedroom mattresses are hypoallergenic and linens are of the highest quality. Paint is also hypoallergenic. Bathrooms offer toiletry items.

The master bedroom has a balcony that overlooks the street, screened by a large tree, so you can't really see the hotel across the street. But to the right you can see some fine Art Nouveau homes. The king sized bed is a rarity in Italy. In the two additional bedrooms the two single beds can be combined to form a large bed that is wider than a queen.

The largest bathroom is across the hall from the master bedroom, it has modern fixtures and a shower over tub. The second bathroom is across the hall from the second and third bedrooms. It has a large step-in shower. Heated towel racks and hairdryers in all bathrooms.

The fourth bedroom is at the end of a small hallway with a bathroom with shower at the end. It has a single bed and armoire. Pleasant view from the window.

The fifth bedroom has two singles that can be combined to form a king sized bed and all bed rooms are 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

The Elegante was the perfect place for our group of eight. It is well situated near many attractions, shopping and great restaurants. The apartment is spacious and well appointed. We were thrilled with our home away from home in Rome. We were welcomed by Barbara who was very helpful and had no difficulty summoning taxis to the location with a typical four minute wait. I can`t really say enough about our time there and the joys of experiencing Rome. One of the other benefits was to have the guidance of Pat at ItalyPerfect before leaving. I would encourage you to review the guide they provide as the tour guides recommended were excellent. The tips provided by ItalyPerfect certainly enhanced our overall experience.

Great location, quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Centrally located and easy walks to most everything in the city; Vatican, Borghese Gallery, Colossuem, Spanish Steps, Trastevere, Trevi Fountain, and one block off another main shopping street Via Cola di Rienzo. The apartment worked well for our family of 7. We would definitely return. Owner and her staff were great to work with.

We had a total of two families staying together in this lovely property. Set in the heart of Roma near the Vatican, this apartment was spectacular. It had everything you needed and was central to restaurants, supermarkets, shopping, etc. Additionally, you're only a few blocks away from transit to anywhere within Roma. We were extremely comfortable in this gorgeous apartment. I highly recommend this place to any traveling to Roma looking for a centrally located, private, quiet and safe environment.

Our month in Rome

  • 5 of 5

We loved our apartment (5 bedrooms, 3 baths). Our experience couldn't have been better. The staff was always pleasant and accommodating. The only negative aspect of the apartment was getting the gate and the outside gate opened. Barbara was a wonderful greeter and always on top of everything. I would definitely recommend Italy Perfect.

Wonderful Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay in this beautiful, spacious 5 bedroom, 3 bath apartment during our family vacation. It was exactly as described on the website and we were not disappointed! Pat at Italy Perfect was a pleasure to work with and she was extremely helpful in answering our questions which made our decision easy. We found the apartment to be extremely clean and very nicely decorated, blending baroque with contemporary. The kitchen is well equipped and the washer/dryer was convenient, although not quite as large as we're used to here in the States. The bedding was very comfortable with luxury linens and plenty of towels, which was welcoming after a day of touring. There was someone there to help with our bags, both on arrival and departure, and Barbara (who spoke fluent English) met us at the apartment to give us an orientation and lots of good information. We found the apartment to be conveniently located to restaurants and there is a grocery store nearby. The Leonardo da Vinci hotel is across the street and they are more than happy to call a cab for you at the front desk, but beware....the hotel charges for the service which almost doubles your fare. We found the residential location to be ideal -- the street was quiet and not too busy but within walking distance of many interesting places.
