Make a holiday apartment in Aurelia and Portuense your home away from home

Aurelia and Portuense are two districts on the right-hand side of the Tiber.  These are pleasant leafy suburbs that enjoy good connections to the centre of Rome, or the Eternal City as it is affectionately known.  Both neighbourhoods are noted for their open spaces and well-known churches.  Aurelia is a quiet area and is named after Via Aurelia, the ancient road that originally linked Rome to what is now modern day Pisa.  Portuense, similarly, takes its name from Via Portuense.  Nearby is the picturesque medieval area of Trastevere.

When comfort and excellent amenities are a must, consider HomeAway’s collection of Aurelia and Portuense holiday apartments.  All are well furnished and styled, and feature air conditioning, televisions, washing machines and coffee makers.  Some have internet access. The rentals in Aurelia and Portuense are close to the city centre and well connected to it by public transport, and as they are located in the suburbs, prove more affordable than those in actual city centre locations.  For alternatives, check out other Rome suburbs where HomeAway has holiday homes, including the South Rome Outskirts or just outside the city in Fiumicino.

Things to do

-Churches: The centre of Rome isn’t short of temples and churches and some of the suburbs are no different.  Aurelia has a number of religious buildings including San Pancrazio church, an ancient basilica built by Pope Simmaco.  Santa Maria Janua Coeli is a modern parish church with a neo-Romanesque design.

-Recreation: Portuense is close to Villa Doria Pamphili, the largest public park in Rome. The green expanse covers more than 180 hectares and was created in the 18th century.  The park has three sections: pine forests, a palace and gardens and agricultural land.  Late afternoon/early evening promenades are popular in the park.

-Shopping: With an Aurelia and Portuense holiday apartment visitors are close to the main shopping attractions of the centre of Rome.  Closer to home, Portuense has eclectic and simple street markets where fresh produce, clothes and souvenirs can be picked up, often at low prices.

-Sights: In addition to Rome’s myriad historic attractions, Aurelia and Portuense are close to Trastevere.  This was once a medieval working-class district that since the 1970s has undergone a process of gentrification.  The area is filled with quaint trattorias, offbeat and bohemian shops, bars and clubs.  History though is never far away with the cobblestone streets lined by medieval houses.

As with the rest of Rome the climate in Aurelia and Portuense is Mediterranean with hot and sunny summers.  July and August are the hottest months, but spring and early autumn tend to be the most popular seasons with tourists.  Winter receives the most rain, with December and January being the wettest.
