Create memories in holiday lettings in Rome

For centuries, Rome was the centre of the world. The Roman Empire dominated, raising colossal temples and amphitheatres to testify to their glories. Nearly 2,000 years on, these relics of former greatness are overshadowed only by grander relics of later ages – this is the Eternal City, after all. From the priceless paintings of the Vatican to the arches of the unforgettable Colosseum, the domed Pantheon to the bubbling Piazza del Popolo, there's no escaping the bucketlist sites. Rome holiday rentals are in the thick of it all, and perfect, no matter if you want to convene with the ancients or experience Italy's bustling heart.

Things to do

Sightseeing near holiday lettings in Rome

Rome certainly has a claim to one of the top museums on the globe – the Vatican. Queues that wiggle around the block are enough to show just how popular it is, and just a couple of rooms in, you will have already passed priceless Caravaggio canvases and masterworks by more medieval painters than you can shake a pizza at. Of course, the piece de resistance of the lot is the Sistine Chapel – its ceilings adorned by the hand of Michelangelo, no less – and the great St. Peter's Basilica – the views from the dome will wow.

Activities

Fun things to do near holiday homes in Rome

No matter if it's a hop-on, hop-off bus that whizzes you around the Colosseum and the massive Castel Sant'Angelo, a motorised 2-wheeled personal transport that takes you through the pine groves of the Villa Borghese or Shanks's pony that gets you around the cobbles of haphazard Trastevere, tours in the Eternal City promise not to disappoint. Keep the eyes open and the camera at the ready as you go – more than 3,000 years of monuments and buildings are liable to pop up around any corner. That's just the sort of capital this is, you see.

Weather

Climate during your stay in Roman holiday homes

Don't worry too much about when you plan that trip to the Eternal City. Rome holiday rentals are always open, just waiting to showcase a metropolis of resplendent art and history. Winter visits – from December to March –are colder, with occasional snow and rain and sub-zero temperatures thinning out the crowds. Spring months, like April and May, are quite quiet, but also pleasantly warm – the same goes for autumn, in October and September. Summer, from June to August, is when the piazzas are packed and the mercury can soar to 30 degrees.

Natural features

Life on the Tiber in Rome

The Italian capital straddles the River Tiber as it weaves its way down from the high Apennine Mountains to the Mediterranean Sea. On the banks, the famous 7 hills of the city rise and fall, now totally beset by urban areas. There are some excellent parks and green spaces offering an escape from the energy. Bag yourself one of the Rome holiday rentals near Villa Borghese to have pine-scented woods and babbling fountains on the doorstep, or head for the countryside of Lazio and the green valleys of the Marcigliana Nature Reserve.
