Airbnbs in Rome: Top 10 Best Rome Airbnbs

airbnbs in Rome, by travel blogger What The Fab

While I’m sure there are great hotels in Rome, Rome is the perfect city to rent an Airbnb in so you can really get that neighborhood vibe. Trust me, after spending all day in super crowded areas surrounded by tourists, a comfortable and quiet Rome Airbnb all to yourself will be a welcome respite.

Don’t get me wrong, the sightseeing in Rome is amazing, it’s just that places like Vatican City, Trevi Fountain, and The Colosseum are very, very crowded.

Another bonus: Airbnb Plus is available in Rome, which means these homes have been verified in person by Airbnb to have fantastic style, comfort, and amenities (things like free wi-fi are a given). Airbnb Plus makes it easy to find your home away from home when you travel, and they are usually the best Airbnbs in Rome.

There are a ton of Airbnbs in Rome to choose from, so I’ve rounded up a list of the best ones, in terms of location, style, comfort, and price. The best vacation rentals book up fast though, so if you’re planning your travel to Italy, be sure to book accommodations as far ahead as possible as you might have a hard time finding something decent last minute! The best vacation rentals in Rome may book up as far as a year in advance.

Here’s my list of the top ten best Airbnbs in Rome, all with great reviews, in a variety of price ranges. Some are perfect for a couple, while others are large enough for a group of five to six people. So whether you’re traveling with your sweetie, your family, or friends, I’ve got you covered! I’m also including photos, price, and links to all of them, to make each apartment easy for you to book. Read on for all the best Rome Airbnbs!

Top 10 Best Airbnbs in Rome

1. Campo de’ Fiori Deluxe Apartment

airbnbs in Rome, by travel blogger What The Fab

This apartment is soooo chic with its high ceilings, frescoes, and ceiling coffers, and an amazing location. Being close to Campo de’ Fiori means you can walk to a lot of Rome’s top sights, including Trevi Fountain, The Spanish Steps, Vatican City, and The Pantheon.

This apartment overlooks a courtyard of a 16th century patrician building and is near renown restaurants, shops, bars, and of course Campo de’ Fiori. There are also bus stops and taxi stands nearby, and it’s easy to reach either of the train stations.

Up to 2 guests // 1 bedroom // 1 bed // 1 bath. Prices from $168 per night. Check pricing and dates here.

2. Luxury Home near Trevi Fountain

airbnbs in Rome, by travel blogger What The Fab
You’ll love the modern and eclectic vibes of this apartment, as well as its central location. Plus, the price is incredibly reasonable, especially for such a modern home with a fantastic location! The apartment has original 17th century beams and fine antique furniture that will make you feel like royalty.

Located in the historic center, you’ll have no problem walking to Rome’s top sights. They also offer free luggage storage, which I always appreciate when I have a late flight or train out!

Up to 4 guests // 1 bedroom // 2 beds // 1 bath. Prices from $85 per night. Check pricing and dates here. (With such an affordable price, I think this apartment would be perfect for a couple!).

3. Spectacular Terrace ApartmentThis stunning apartment has three bedrooms, a light and airy living room, and a terrace with views of the Roman Forum. Imagine sipping your coffee in the morning while overlooking this archaeological treasure every day!

This apartment is truly one of the prettiest Rome Airbnbs I’ve seen on the market. If you’re looking for the best Airbnb in Rome with a terrace, look no further. The apartment is located in a charming, elegant and quiet street that runs along the Roman Forum, so you’ll be within a few minutes walking distance from the Colosseum, the Campidoglio, Piazza Venezia and Trastevere. While the area is central, the street is very quiet, which can be hard to find in central parts of Rome.

Up to 6 guests // 3 bedrooms // 3 beds // 3.5 baths. Prices from $451 per night. Check pricing and dates here.

4. Apartment near Colosseum

airbnbs in Rome, by travel blogger What The Fab
This elegant apartment is right by Rome’s most iconic site—The Colosseum. You’ll enjoy modern decor, a well-equipped kitchen, and being within walking distance of such incredible sightseeing. You can soak up the sun and enjoy your meals on the wide terrace of this comfortable Roman nook at the end of a long day. Perfectly located, too!

Up to 3 guests // 1 bedroom // 2 beds // 1 bath. Prices from $124 per night. Check pricing and dates here.

5. Eleonora Terrace

airbnbs in Rome, by travel blogger What The Fab
This apartment features a gorgeous roof terrace and is located steps away from Piazza Navona, one of Rome’s main squares. It has two beds and two baths and is perfect for a group of friends or family.

The apartment has 3 different levels (perfect if you’d like some space away from your kids) with planted terraces, and is in a very convenient location. Restaurants, bus stops, and grocery stores are all within a stone’s throw.

Up to 5 guests // 2 bedrooms // 4 beds // 2 baths. Prices from $156 per night. Check pricing and dates here.

6. Apartment with Stunning, Private Terrace

airbnbs in Rome, by travel blogger What The Fab
All of its guests have given this place a 5-star rating. It’s about a 20 minute walk to Vatican City, so if you’re looking to visit San Pietro (St. Peter’s Basilica), but still want to be centrally located in Rome, this is a great option.

Be prepared to walk up five flights of stairs (but it’s worth it for those terrace views!). You’ll be within walking distance of all the top sights (Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, the Colosseum, the Spanish Steps, Trastevere, Vatican City).

Up to 5 guests // 1 bedroom // 2 beds // 1 bath. Prices from $222 per night. Check pricing and dates here. (While this one says it can accommodate up to 5 guests on the listing, I actually think it would be more comfortable for 2 – 3 people, since it is a one bedroom, one bath.)

7. Apartment with Gorgeous Wine Terrace

airbnbs in Rome, by travel blogger What The Fab
Another great spot near Piazza Navona, the interiors of this apartment are very chic. The terrace is beautiful and perfect for sipping wine after a long day of sightseeing. Who doesn’t love some indoor/outdoor living spaces?

The location is excellent, located on a quaint corridor with many amazing restaurants within a short walking distance. It’s also an easy walk to many of the main attractions in Rome, including St. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City, Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain, Trastevere, and more. There is also a taxi stand nearby, in case you decide you’re done with walking and just want a lift!

Up to 6 guest // 2 bedrooms // 2 beds // 1 bath. Prices from $292 per night. Check pricing and dates here. (Again, the listing says up to 6, but with one bathroom I think you’d want to do max 4 – 5!)

8. Chic Trastevere Penthouse with Rooftop Terrace

airbnbs in Rome, by travel blogger What The Fab

Trastevere is a really cute, hip neighborhood where locals live and hang out. It has bohemian vibes and great trattorias and bars.

This Rome Airbnb is perfect for a group of people—you’ll have delicious restaurants in walking distance, and a gorgeous terrace where you can open a bottle of wine and watch the sun set over Rome from the expansive rooftop terrace of this beautifully renovated penthouse. The apartment features exposed-beam ceilings, an expansive open living room, and a cozy reading room with a skylight.

Up to 6 guests // 3 bedrooms // 5 beds // 3 baths. Prices from $337 per night. Check pricing and dates here.

9. Charming Apartment with Terrace by Spanish Steps

airbnbs in Rome, by travel blogger What The Fab
How does dinner by candlelight on the magnificent terrace of this enchanting 4th-floor apartment sound? Pretty freaking fantastic, if you ask me.

Enjoy the patio with the sounds of the city below you. This apartment’s open-space living plan is bright and inviting, with all the amenities you’d expect from an Airbnb Plus. Soft furnishings and eclectic accents add a warm, bohemian touch.

Since it’s located near the Spanish Steps, you’ll be in an upscale neighborhood and find it easy to walk to many of the top sights, with plenty of Rome’s best shopping options nearby. You’ll also have tons of options for markets and groceries.

Up to 4 guests // 1 bedroom // 1 bed // 1 bath. Prices from $168 per night. Check pricing and dates here. (I’m assuming there’s a sleeper sofa here, which is why this apartment can accommodate up to 4. But I think it’d be most comfortable for two people.).

10. Eclectic Loft Apartment in Trastevere

airbnbs in Rome, by travel blogger What The Fab
This apartment is in the vibrant neighborhood of Trastevere, which I mentioned is where a lot of locals live and like to hang out.

A spiral staircase brings you up to the lofted bedroom. The apartment is just a stone’s throw away from trendy nightlife spots, artisan shops, and some of Rome’s best trattorias, as well as the Museo di Roma. Be sure to visit Santa Maria Basilica, and take a walk through the lush grounds of Parco del Gianicolo.

Up to 4 guests // 1 bedroom // 1 bed // 1 bath. Prices from $135 per night. Check pricing and dates here. (Again, I think this one would be great for a couple since it’s a one bedroom!).

I hope this post was helpful for those of you looking for the best Airbnbs in Rome!

FAQs

Which is the best area to stay in Rome?

The area around Piazza Navona and Pantheon is very centrally-located and a great place for tourists to stay. Staying near the Spanish Steps will put you in a very central area as well, and you’ll be surrounded by high-end shops and restaurants. Travestere is another great neighborhood to stay in, as it is less touristy, but easy to get to Rome’s main sights from.

Is Travestere a good area to stay in Rome?

Travestere is a great neighborhood to stay at in Rome. It’s where more locals live and hang out, so it’s much less touristy than other parts of Rome, and Rome’s main attractions are still easily accessible from Travestere.

Is Rome dangerous for tourists?

Rome is a fairly safe city, but tourists should definitely be careful about pickpockets and other scams. There are a lot of hawkers who can get very aggressive trying to sell you things, so it is best to not engage and strongly tell them, “No.”

How many days do you need in Rome?

Many people try to cram Rome into 2 – 3 days, but that is not really enough to see all of Rome’s incredible sights. At least 4 – 5 days is ideal.
