10 Airbnbs in Rome for the Perfect Roman Holiday [UPDATED 2021]

With the best views of Rome, these Airbnbs will have the city at your doorstep!

La dolce vita will greet you in the streets of Rome, where bustling markets, centuries-old churches, and Renaissance masterpieces entwine in a labyrinth of streets. Every neighbourhood shows a different side to the Eternal City; every street opens a different page. That's why staying in the right Airbnb in Rome is so crucial. Before you can say that “you came, you saw, and you conquered,” everything depends on your location. 

After all, Rome is a living museum that's best experienced on foot. Certainly, this means walking to your destination or going up a flight of stairs every so often. But hey, if it also means shedding all those calories from pasta and enjoying a glorious view at the end of the staircase, then it’s going to be worth it.
