By staying in someone’s else’s apartment you get access to all the amenities as well as your own room to relax in.

The Magnificent Colosseum

The city's most famous landmark is the Colosseum. The huge amphitheater was built in around 70BC, and although it has had to be renovated numerous times since, it still very much retains its authenticity. Discoveries continue to be made in the foundation and the many dungeons under the amphitheater. There Colosseum held up to 60,000 people at its heydays. and there was great demand for tickets so to speak. Gladiators were particularly popular in the Roman Empire and, to the delight of the locals, the arena was used exclusively for the best gladiator fighting in the empire.

Today it is still possible to explore the glorious arena, but luckily without the gladiator fights. Prices vary, but it is very much advisable to take a guided tour and get all the secret stories about the mysterious stadium.

Trevi Fountain

The Trevi Fountain is one attraction you will always find in a guidebook and the beautiful fountain is certainly a must-see for any visitor to Rome. Built in the 1700s by Nicola Salvi , the fountain attracts admirers from all over the world.

Visit the National Museum

With its unique and magnificent history, Rome has a wealth of museums and galleries to explore. The largest and most visited is the National Museum. It’s also where you should go to get the best overview of the history of Rome, which is the goal for most people coming to the city. Countless unique items from all time periods are displayed in the many exhibits that make up the building. Many do not know that the Rome also was one of the most important cities in the Renaissance time. Typically Florence earns this title, but nevertheless, Rome was also incredibly important city in this period for architecture and art.

The Roman Empire is of course also a very central part of the exhibition at the National Museum. There is still an enormous pride in what was accomplished under the reign of the various Roman emperors, in particular the dominance of the famed legions that laid siege to much of Europe and North Africa.

Vatican City

After the hustle and bustle of Rome begins to take its toll head to the spiritual retreat of Vatican City. The world’s smallest state, located in the middle of Rome, is of huge religious importance to the world’s Roman Catholics, and many make their pilgrimage there during their lifetimes. The official residence for the Pope (Roman Catholics' most important living being), the city within a city has a spiritual feel that even non believers cannot ignore. St Peters Basilica is considered the epicenter of the Catholic world, the Cathedral is huge and was designed by Michelangelo. You get the best view of this from St. Peters Square which is worth a visit in its own right.

Tourists not on pilgrimage should head to the Vatican Museum to learn more about the history of the state and also because it is the entrance to the pristine Sistine Chapel . The museum has an abundance of renaissance and religious art including paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, Giotto, Raphael, Caravaggio and Veronese. Holiday rentals are also popular in Vatican cities and Wimdu offers some great apartments to rent here during your stay in Rome.
