Best Airbnbs in Rome, Italy

Quiet & Charming Apartment

Located in the southern outskirts of Rome, this 4th floor Airbnb is perfect for one to two people. It's a 1-bedroom, 1-bath apartment with a kitchenette, living space, and an adorable private balcony. It has everything you might need for a stay in Rome, from coffee supplies to a hammock with incredible views. The neighborhood around this quiet, and there are many restaurants and markets within walking distance. Because it's a little further from the city center, the roads are not very busy, and there are sidewalks everywhere. If you love exploring new places by foot, this is the best Airbnb in Rome for you.

Family Friendly

Are you visiting Rome with family? This top floor, 2-bedroom, 2-bath apartment is a great place to stay with a group of up to 4 people. There is a baby gate that closes the stairs off and the "balcony" is walled in, which is great if you're staying with kids. This Rome Airbnb is close to many famous monuments, tourist attractions, and delicious restaurants. If you're up for a little walking, head to the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, and the list goes on. You can also catch a bus just a block away that will take you all over the city. This Rome Airbnb is perfect for those who want to sight see as much as they can; it's in a prime location close to many famous Roman monuments.

Comfortable, First Floor

This is a first floor apartment which is a rare find in Rome. It is 1-bedroom, 1.5-baths, and also has a comfortable pull-out couch. We stayed here comfortably with four people total, and had plenty of space. There is a full kitchen too, which is great to use if you want to save money on food. This is the perfect place to stay if you want to enjoy Rome like a local. It's in a fairly popular area, but you'll be closer to family run restaurants and local markets rather than bustling tourist attractions.
