“La vita bella” is within reach along the historic streets of Rome. For thousands of years this city was considered the center of the Western world. Today it’s still a hub for some of the best international art, fashion, and cuisine. Rome vacation rentals turn this complex and beautiful city into your own backyard. Walk among ancient ruins at the Roman Forum and browse imaginative sculptures at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome. Do it all while tasting recipes that have been prepared for generations—or creating your own delicious meals in the comfort of your private kitchen.
You might think that such a legendary destination would lack homey districts and local hideaways, but that’s not a problem in Rome. Find delicious treasures in the markets and streetside cafes of Trionfale and Prati, two conjoined neighborhoods located directly north of Vatican City. Look out over the city from the hilltop in tranquil Aventine, and pause before you venture into the art vendors and ancient monuments that line bustling Centro Storico. When you have a vacation rental in Rome’s most beloved hot spots, it’s easy to see all the attractions on your list without feeling like you’re on a tourism treadmill. Step back to the first century BCE at the Pantheon and dine at La Campana, considered the oldest restaurant in Rome, then come back to your home away from home with modern amenities and contemporary creature comforts you’d expect from a top hotel.
Each district has both a mood and its own history. Stay at boutique-style Elena al Colosseo for easy access to the city’s trendy wine bars, buzzing nightlife, and of course the Colosseum itself. If the quieter vibes of Trionfale are calling your name, book a lovely family-friendly room at Residence Candia and wake up to views of the Vatican. No matter what part of The Eternal City you want to visit, Travelocity will help you find the perfect accommodation to enjoy it from. Book today!
