Destination guide

A city for the ages that has everything your vacation needs

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.

Things to do

Rome – where the churches are also the art museums

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.


The streets of Rome want you to live 'la dolce vita'

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.


Fun, chilly winters and warm, sultry summers

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.

Natural highlights

When in Rome, relax by the sea or drive as the Romans do

Rome was originally a walled city built on 7 hills just east of the river Tiber. Now, its metropolitan area reaches the sea, and you can hop a train in the city centre and be at Ostia or Fregene Beach in an hour. Too cold for a beach day? Stay central and gaze at the starlings. Thousands of them call Rome home in winter, and their flocks take on beautiful, fluid shapes as they move through the sky. If thrill-seeking is more your speed (and if you're heavily insured!), hire a Vespa and head off for some exploring.
