Rome Apartment Rentals Colosseum View


This amazing two bedroom apartment can accommodate up to 7 people and it is located on the top floor of an early 1900 6-story building with elevator.

A private external charming roof terrace on the above floor is accessible to our guests only: enjoy a glass of wine, a cappuccino in the morning or a meal in the evening while looking out over the Colosseum, the Vatican Dome, the Vittoriano (Wedding Cake), the Roman rooftops and other monuments! Only the guests of the listing 279021 can access the terrace that is NOT shared with anyone else. ONLY YOU!

This Rome Colosseum apartment is located very close to the most important monument of Rome: the Flavian Amphitheater also known as the Colosseum, one of the 7 Wonders of the World. The flat is in the heart of the Ancient Rome a few steps far from other important sites: the Nero's Domus Aurea, the Roman Forums, the Saint Mary Major Basilica, the Basilica of Saint Clement and the Saint Peter in Chains Church with the amazing Michelangelo's Moses statue. The apartment can welcome up to 7 people. It is made up of a living room with a double sofa bed, 2 bedrooms with king size bed (one of them can be split into 2), 1 full bathroom with shower, 1 toilet (WC+Basin) and a fully equipped kitchen. After some works now hot water in the shower is available continuously. So, plenty of hot water for your showers!

The home's position is incredible: 300 m. from the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and from the beautiful Colle Oppio Park. You can easily reach the other areas of the historical centre on foot or by bus and tram that conveniently stop in front of our building. If you prefer you can take the Metro/underground (line A and B) at the nearby stops of 'Manzoni' or 'Colosseo'. The apartment is located not far from the central train station (10 minutes by taxi or by bus/metro) and from the airport (45 minutes by taxi, 90 by train). Combined with 4 apartments in the opposite building, a party of 28/30 people can be accommodated. All of the above are important ingredients that make for unforgettable Roman Holiday...

The Holiday Home Colosseum Great Beauty Terrace is located on a 6th floor of a building with elevator, in the ancient and characteristic Rione Monti.

Upon your arrival you will receive a map of the city and useful information on the city sights, shops and restaurants, pizzerias, trattorias, wine-bars and groceries in the area. The apartment has a well supplied bookshelf at your disposition containing tourist and archaeological guide books in various languages and our staff is always on hand to help and suggest touristic itineraries.

About Paolo

My name is Paolo. I was born and grew up in Rome and I do love my city. I use to travel abroad renting apartments and I and my wife Raffaella decided to do the same with who want to spend a few days in the Eternal City. We try to do our best to make your stay as comfortable, cozy and unforgettable as possible. I offer assistance 24/24 and 7/7.

Paolo purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Paolo chose Colosseo Foro Romano (Coliseum & Roman Forum)

The Colosseum area is maybe the most ancient part of Rome and also the most dense of monuments, churches, museums and archaeological sites. The Colosseum (one of the 7 WONDERS of the World!) is only 200 meters far from the apartment. If you decide to stay in my apartment you will be able to walk everywhere saving lot of time and energies!

What makes this apartment unique

Exclusive upstairs terrace with amazing view over the Colosseum, the Vatican and the Vittoriano, wi-fi internet high speed access, building with concierge and elevator, large living room and 2 separated bedrooms: you will find all those things that can make unique your vacation in Rome!

Rome Apartment Rentals Colosseum View - Roof Terrace with 2BR/1.5BATH Wi-Fi
average rating of 4.83871 based on 31 reviews

Wow! What a place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

The key thing for us when choosing this property was its location and - even better! - the view from the private terrace. It really is like in the picture. The apartment is 10 minutes gentle walk to the Colosseum, another 5 to the Forum, half an hour to Trevi. Breakfast on the terrace every morning overlooking the Colosseum, the "Wedding Cake" in the background and St Peter's Basilica clearly visible in the distance - wonderful! Evening sunsets pretty spectacular too.

The apartment itself is not "boutique" but its pretty good - clean, spacious, well maintained and well equipped. The two bedrooms (one double, one twin) had plenty of space and the beds were extremely comfortable - probably the best we've slept in on various city breaks and holidays. The kitchen and bathroom would benefit from a little tender loving care, but the overall impression is great.

Special mention for Paulo. The information he sent us in advance was really useful and on arrival he provided us with more useful information about places to visit and good places to eat (there's loads of them within a 10 minute walk, from decent restaurants to cheap and cheerful pizzarias and an excellent gelateria). We booked taxis to and from the airport through him and they arrived when expected. He can also book tours and trips, although we'd sorted ours out independently in advance. A very nice and helpful man, keen to help his guests get the best out of their visit to Rome.

If we ever go back to Rome, this is the first place we'd check for availability. A great place for families.

This property was awesome! Great accommodations, great view!

  • 5 of 5

Paolo provided helpful information in both the local area of the flat as well as the city of Rome!

Close by grocery for our needs. Mini-markets across the street for immediate needs.

Less than 10 minute walk to the Colesseum and the Hop On Hop Off bus.

The View at sunset- awesome!

Thank you Paolo for a wonderful experience!

Excellent apartment! Wonderful host! Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous apartment! Paolo is a great host. Since this was our first trip to Rome, I had a lot of questions before the trip. He answered all of them promptly and was very kind. When we arrived, he advised on the best places to eat and shop. There is a small elevator, which is so helpful since the apartment is on the 6th floor. The kitchen is well equipped. The beds are SO comfortable. The absolute best part is the private terrace. The view is absolutely spectacular and looks directly at the Colosseum! The sunsets were breathtaking. However, my favorite thing to see were the sunrises. Walking to the Colosseum takes 10 minutes and it's very close to the train and bus stations. It's extremely quiet and relaxing. There were five of us (4 adults, 1 child) traveling and we felt safe in the neighborhood. We had a rental car and parking was readily available. I highly recommend this rental. We hope to return soon.

View, location, helpful management!

  • 5 of 5

We three were delighted to stay in this centrally located, easily walkable, breath taking views, apartment in the coliseum neighborhood. We found great restaurants, services.24 hour grocery store,and the icing was our nightly stroll around the coliseum. This apartment is very open, light, with great beds, good kitchen supplies, quiet, and with a roof top garden with straight on view of the coliseum. We were quiet happy! You will be too!

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Nice sized apartment only a 10 min walk from the Colosseum. The private terrace is amazing! I sat there all night enjoying wine and the gorgeous view. Paolo was very responsive and accommodating to our requests. Air conditioning was in every room, which is very important in August! Very kid friendly unit - a crib and high stair were provided and there were even toys for our 1 year old daughter.

Apartment is in a great location and the rooftop views and sunsets are unbelievable

  • 5 of 5

This apartment and the very friendly manner which Paolo has, made our first trip to Rome absolutely fantastic and one we will never forget. He advised on the best places to eat and shop locally and we were delighted with the places we visited. Paola booked a trip to the Vatican and arranged for a taxi to take us there as well. His apartment was perfect for our needs and we enjoyed five amazing sunsets from the balcony. Will definitely recommend to friends and family that they should stay in this apartment
