Rome is a fascinating city for its architecture, culture and history. What better place to rent an apartment than in the Colosseum area? All the apartments to rent in the Colosseum area are of the highest standard, and ensure a comfortable stay as you explore the sites that Rome has to offer. By taking self catering accommodation in the Colosseum area, you will have the best of both worlds, such as first class facilities close by to all the attractions, and a great deal of independence.
Holidays in the Colosseum area, Rome, will forever imprint this impressive Roman amphitheatre on your mind. Even now, it seems to dominate the buildings around it, and one can only imagine the effect that it had on people one or two thousand years ago. It is visited by millions of tourists every year, and as such, can feel a bit of a circus at times. Go with the flow though, and you will be duly rewarded by this ancient testament to man’s ingenuity. Outside, you may find people dressed in Roman uniform or gladiators clothing, which make for some great photo opportunities.
With such an ancient, full and colourful history, there are an abundance of places to visit in Rome. The Imperial Forum is one such place, as is the Pantheon. Whilst both these attractions can be enjoyed by simply visiting them and walking around, using a guide of some form would be greatly beneficial in order to learn a little more about the place. The Vatican City, which is technically a small country in its own right, is also a popular tourist destination. The Papal apartment may be off limits, but you are able to walk around the gardens, and look at some magnificent artworks. The food in Rome is exquisite, and so if you do not wish to use the cooking facilities in the self catering apartment in the Colosseum area, there are many places that you can eat at.
Rome in general has a mild climate that means that it is possible to vacation here at any time of year. However, it is important to know that some months are better than others in this regard. July and August are hot and occasionally humid, and so if visiting then, it would be advisable to ensure that any self catering accommodation in the Colosseum area has air conditioning or some other form of ventilation. Likewise, in the winter months, you may need to check if an apartment has heating of some sort. Generally speaking, the spring and autumn months are the best time to visit with temperatures in the comfortable low twenties degrees Celsius.
If you are flying into Rome for your holiday, then you will more likely than not land at the major airport Fiumicino (FCO). The airport has flights via British Airways, BMI, Alitalia, easyJet and Ryan Air and these depart from UK airports such as London Heathrow (LHR), Manchester (MAN), East Midlands (EMA) and Edinburgh (EDI).
