Now you really can do as the Romans do, by staying in an apartment in Rome and experiencing the city like a local. And with each of Rome's many neighbourhoods having its own special character, there are many ways of doing things. These apartments are in different areas, so you can choose based on what interests you the most.
If it is your first time in Rome, then you'll want to be close to all the sights. You'll find Your Suite Rome in the historic centre of the city, a short walk from Piazza Navona, one of Rome's main squares. A pleasant early evening stroll will take you past the Pantheon Roman temple, to the Trevi Fountain and for drinks at Campo de' Fiori market. And just across the river is the smallest country in the world, Vatican City and its famous St Peter's Basilica.
Your Suite Rome has a good range of accommodation, including large apartments for families or small groups. All apartments come with kitchen and free WiFi, and you can choose to join any of the walking tours or cooking classes created for guests.
For the finer things in life, try the neighbourhood around the Spanish Steps, which is the place to go for designer boutiques, fancy bars and upmarket restaurants. If that sounds like your thing, then 64 Suites Apart is in the perfect spot, just five minutes from the Piazza del Spagna, where you'll find the famous steps. Also nearby is the Terrazza del Pincio, a good spot for panoramic views of the city skyline.
With a choice of one- to four-bed apartments, 64 Suites Apart suits couples and families, and they all have a fully equipped kitchen, flatscreen TVs and free WiFi. For eating out, just explore the streets immediately around the apartments.
If you have a fascination with Ancient Rome, you'll be happy at Restart Accommodations Little Colosseum in the heart of the Eternal City. Celio is a relaxed residential district with many local bars and restaurants, but still home to those show-stopping sights.

The apartments at Restart Accommodations Little Colosseum are a good choice for couples, with a kitchenette, queen-sized beds, free WiFi and a patio with garden views for breakfast al fresco.
The neighbourhood of Monti, between Rome's Termini station and the historic city centre, has long been a popular bohemian hangout, where you'll find cosy wine bars and vintage stores. Right in the heart of the neighbourhood, Monti Apartments - My Extra Home are close to some of Rome's cultural highlights.

The Monti Apartments - My Extra Home have separate bedrooms and kitchen/living areas, with free WiFi. Some of the apartments also have a balcony or terrace with city views.
It might technically be another country, but the Vatican City is right in the centre of Rome and one of the must-see attractions. St Peter's Square and Basilica are truly remarkable sights, and the views across the city are well worth the climb to the dome. Also at the Vatican, you'll find classical and Renaissance masterpieces, including Michelangelo's fresco in the Sistine Chapel.
The Rent in Rome - Residenze Papali is just a couple of streets away from the Vatican, in the Preti neighbourhood, also home to the interactive Museum Leonardo Da Vinci Experience. The apartment has two bedrooms, free WiFi and a separate dining and sitting area.
For a Rome neighbourhood with a difference, head across the river from the historic centre to Trastevere, where the cobbled streets host the city's alternative scene, including some of the Rome's best nightlife.
