Rome Vacation Rentals

Our affiliate partners, Airbnb and Booking.com, make it easy to find a home away from home in Rome.

For most travelers, it makes sense to stay at a hotel, B&B, or hostel. The average stay in a European city or town is less than three days, and for that amount of time, putting down roots (no matter how temporary) may be more effort than it's worth.

For longer visits--or if you're traveling with children--a vacation rental is well worth considering. Such rentals typically fall into several categories:

  • Apartments (including lofts and studios).

  • Private rooms.

  • Villas, cottages, and chalets.

  • Out-of-the-ordinary rentals such as houseboats and "tiny houses."

Two of our affiliate partners, Airbnb and Booking.com, offer a growing number of vacation rentals in Rome and throughout Europe. (We're paying customers of both platforms ourselves.)

  • Airbnb: Rome our partner
    The world's largest holiday-rental platform offers hundreds of Rome apartments, suites, lofts, and private rooms at every price level. Recently, it introduced an "Airbnb Enhanced Clean" protocol that was developed in collaboration with health professionals.

  • Booking.com: Rome Rentals our partner
    Europe's no. 1 secure reservations service is best known for its competitive hotel rates, but it also represents vacation properties--including "condo hotels" and other serviced apartments.

Tips:

  • Airbnb allows stays of any length, in most cases, and some properties offer big discounts for stays of 30 days or longer.

  • Booking.com traditionally has focused on shorter stays, though many properties are now offering longer visits.

  • When comparing rental prices, be sure to compare the total costs (including any service or cleaning fees).
