Rome: once the most powerful city on the planet, where Caesars trod in the cypress-topped Forum, great temples rose and fall, and empires were made and unmade. There's arguably nowhere else on the globe with such a significant medley of awesome monuments symbolising such power. There’s no end of things to gawp at, from the colossal Colosseum to the pine-scented ruins atop the Palatine Hill, to the art-filled majesty of the Vatican, to the quaint Trastevere, with its tight-knit maze of cobbled alleys and traditional pizzerias. Whether you're seeking romance, an odyssey with the ancients, the artefacts of world-class museums, or just a taste of buffalo mozzarella and Chianti, Rome holiday rentals are your gateway to all of this and more.
If you really want to recline like a Caesar and take in the delights of the fabled Eternal City at your own pace, it's certainly worth thinking about trading in the classic hotel for holiday rentals in Rome. Many come with oodles more space than any ordinary guestroom would, which is great if you're hauling big suitcases, or simply want a big of extra leg space after those long days touring the Roman sights. Many holiday apartments in Rome will have lounges, spacious kitchens and terraces, giving you a real home away from home in the historic heart of the Italian capital.
Cameras click and eyes are wide in the Roman Forum and Colosseum area. This represents the heart of the ancient city of Rome, and comes top of many itineraries. After guided tours of both those ancient sites, you can then flit across to other equally historic quarters, where relics like the great Pantheon hide the tombs of masters like Raphael. Nearby, the Spanish Steps give way to rows of high fashion shopping strips, and the babbling Trevi Fountain draws in the crowds. Walks through the Vatican Museums and the Castel Sant'Angelo are great things to do in the evening, when visitor numbers have died down and the sun is setting over the Tiber.
It’s not really worth hiring a car in Rome, as the tight streets and compact layout of this old, old capital are really only primed for walking. Bring your comfy shoes and let the city lead you astray. That said, modern Romans have added a few handy things to the mix to help you flit from attraction to attraction with ease. First up is the Rome metro, which has a number of lines running in a cross shape over the city. Stops exist at most of the major sights, while districts on the far side of the Tiber River are often best reached on local bus connections from the Termini Station.
