When it comes to a tempting taste of la dolce vita, few cities dish it up better than Rome. Historical attractions from the days of Ancient Rome, stunning art galleries, hip boutiques, wonderful restaurants and lush hotels – you’ll find them all in the Italian capital.

But if you want to really see what this glorious city is all about – and feel like a true local, of course – check out our list of the best Airbnb venues in Rome, where we’ve picked everything from luxury rooms overlooking the Colosseum and those right on top of the Trevi Fountain to all those Airbnbs with more Italian appeal than a particularly suave waiter in a high-end restaurant. We hope you like.

Best Airbnbs in Rome

Rustic studio in the centre of town

The location here is the big selling point – it’s ten minutes from the Colosseum and most of the major landmarks are within easy reach on foot. But you don’t even need to walk out of the front door to experience a genuine slice of Italy – this charming little studio flat is full of authentic character and charm. It’s got exposed-brick walls, barrel-vaulted ceilings, shelves lined with earthenware pots and a veranda layered with ivy.

Loft garden in San Lorenzo

This property is found in San Lorenzo, a university district of Rome, and one that consequently is loaded with bars, places to grab a bite and stylish hangouts. This loft apartment is a real jewel, decked out with fun, old-school furnishings and either floor connected by a spiral staircase. (We love that print of the big cat too!) But best of all is its large outdoor garden space, filled with plants and a table and chairs for you to sit out on with a glass of wine. Perfect!

‘Flying Home’ at Spanish Steps

This bright and breezy – and very cool-looking – Airbnb apartment is close to the Spanish Steps, very close to the Trinità dei Monti and right in the heart of another of Rome’s most popular tourist areas. It’s spacious, decked with contemporary furnishings and with nice big windows to let all that Mediterranean sunshine in. But we reckon guests here probably spend most of their time here outside on that incredible terrace...

Modern loft in a former glass factory

This swanky new loft apartment is housed in a building that was once home to a Roman glass factory. The design is all very modern, which means an ace combo of high-end contemporary fixtures and fittings against original features such as exposed brickwork and imposing arches. It’s one very cool apartment. Plus, if you’re travelling in and out of Rome by train, this one’s a good shout – Termini station is just a ten-minute walk, or a cheap cab ride, away.

Three-bedroom loft apartment

This three-bedroom, split-level, design-led apartment is a corker, mostly thanks to some quite frankly awesome floor-to-ceiling windows, massive skylights and a gorgeous mezzanine. The hosts describe the various spaces as ‘intercommunicating’, which is certainly a nice way of describing the open-plan layout. A great finish, lovely art and a tucked-away location in the heart of town round it all off very nicely.

Trastevere cottage

A cute-as-a-button cottage close to Santa Maria in Trastevere. Perfect for two, fine for four, this might be one of the more affordable options on our list of Rome Airbnbs but it’s also one of the most charming. The antique furniture and bookcases give it a homely, welcoming vibe. It’s got a ton of great reviews, too.

Luxury apartment on Trevi Square

This super-sleek apartment has just about one of the best views of the Trevi Fountain as you're going to get – it’s almost right opposite, so you're pretty much getting a full frontal. Not a bad way to start your day, for sure. Inside it’s very white – almost entirely as white as those iconic travertine sculptures outside. And the chandeliers might be a novelty for some, but too bling for some. Otherwise, though, this property’s a doozy.

Luxe four-bedroom apartment on Piazza di Spagna

Six floors up, spacious, chic, a bit glitzy – with its airy, white and cream exterior and artworks and prints across the walls, this is a very good-looking apartment indeed. It’s also great for large groups: it can host up to ten guests, if you and a bunch of pals have a city break in Rome planned. The location’s a good one too, with the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain just a gentle wander away.

Large apartment with private garden

Looking for something special, to share with a large group of friends? Simply stepping into the entrance hall here will make you feel like a bona fide member of Italian nobility. It’s a very grand, pretty apartment block with a sweet, private garden to boot. Plus, an extra folder bed can be added on request and it's only a three-minute walk from Metro A or 15-20 minute walk to Vatican and San Peter, so you’re right in the heart of it all.

Luxury three-bedroom penthouse

What’s Italian for ‘blow-out’? Okay, not everyone will have the slightly eye-watering budget for this super-opulent, super-luxe penthouse. But those who do will be in for a real treat. It has an intoxicating mixture of classic Italianate grandeur and contemporary cool – check out that wonderfully coved dining room in contrast to the all the mod cons of the kitchen. The terrace outside is expansive and offers sweeping views of the city. If your finances can take the hit, then make sure you book this one.
