Big Colosseum penthouse with roof garden over Rome
Description from the owner
Domus Colosseo is a big and luxury penthouse (130 m2 plus 130 m2 of terraces) arranged on three floors with a breathtaking 360° view from its roof garden over ancient Rome. It is ideal for families and large groups looking for a very central apartment.
At only two-minutes walk from the Colosseum and the Imperial Forums, it is perfect for visiting ancient Rome while comfortably settled in a newly renovated apartment equipped with full comforts (Jacuzzi hot tub, Internet wi-fi, air conditioning, satellite Sky TV, washing machine, dishwasher, coffee machine, microwave, elevator, iron, city guides etc.).
IMPORTANT. At the moment a portion of the view in front of the apartment is disturbed by works in progress for the construction of the Line-C subway, that can produce noise during working hours.
---360° view over Rome---
Enjoy a breathtaking view all over the centre of Rome from its roof garden, terraces and windows: stunning views are the main trait of this penthouse and they are so spectacular, particularly on the 8th floor roof garden, that in May 2008 they were filmed by National Geographic for a programme about Rome.
---Ideal for a large group or a family---
The apartment is ideal for a large group or a family, as the space of the entire property (260 m2) allows full ease of living for 8 people (6 adults and 2 chidren).
In the apartment there are:
- 1 spacious living room with three sofas (one of which is a double sofa bed), satellite Sky TV, dvd-divx-cd-mpeg-mp3 player, hi fi and home theatre;
- 1 dining room for 10-12 people;
- 1 independent Kitchen with fridge, freezer, stove/oven, microwave oven/grill, coffee maker, kettle, toaster, dishwasher and washing machine;
- 4 bedrooms (of which: 1 double room with an additional bed and a cot; 1 room with 2 single beds that can become 1 double bed; 2 rooms with single beds);
- 3 terraces (130 m2), furnished with table, chairs, deckchairs, sun beds and Mediterranean plants;
- 2 bathrooms (one with Jacuzzi hot tub and the other one with shower) both with bidet and hairdryer;
- 1 outdoor shower.
Upon request, we will provide you with an Italian mobile phone for free, to be in contact with us during your stay in Rome.
The apartment is located on the 6th, 7th and 8th floors of an eight-floor building, and includes an elevator. Situated in the Celio district of Rome (one of the famous Seven Hills), the area is quiet and full of green spaces; however, it also offers lively restaurants, pubs, and supermarkets. The building is encircled by three public parks.
---How to reach the apartment---
Located in the heart of ancient Rome, the apartment is perfect for those who want to walk in the centre or reach any other destination by public transports. The access is extremely easy both via public transportation and private car. Fly to Rome: convenient though luxurious airport transfers both from Ciampino and Fiumicino are available. It is more comfortable (the driver finds you, he knows where you have to go and you do not have to queue in order to find a taxi) and sometimes even cheaper than taxis.
-Drive to Rome: a large paying garage is only 50 meters away.
-Come to Rome by Train: Termini (central railway station) is just two subway stops away.
-Underground stops (Colosseo line B and Vittorio Emanuele line A) and bus stops are only 2-10 minutes walk.

Superb apartment in every aspect. Wonderful views,
great neighborhood, very clean & good - we really
felt "at home" in a welcoming way. All amenities
you could wish, also the internet is very helpful
in planning trips & days. We could feel the loving
care of the owners in every detail of the house.
The apartment is spacious and very good for a
group of people. With 3 terraces you can enjoy the
views and weather outside. But we, a group of 7
(parents, grandparents and 3 teenagers) had rainy
winterweather, and even then the house was
wonderful: quiet, private, with room enough to
make everyone feel comfortable without
embarrassing each other too much. Wonderful
neighbourhood, we really loved it: the Collosseum
and busstops around the corner, yet quite
'withdrawn' from the tourists. It has good places
to eat and very nice and friendly people;
supermarket 50 meters, bars and gelateria around
the corner. Park and kids playground in front of
the apartment. We sure are longing to go back!
"Great location and fabulous rooftop garden patio"

Our family of four (two adults and two children ages 8 and 12) plus two grandparents stayed here for six days and were very pleased with the accommodation and location. The owner, Raffaela, made us feel extremely welcome, and both through email and in person she answered many questions and provided advice to help us get settled into Rome and enjoy our vacation. Checking in and out was very pleasant and easy. The apartment is very comfortable and spacious; our favorite aspect is the loft bedroom, which opens to a rooftop patio and garden where we loved to relax and enjoy panoramic views of the Coliseum and beyond. The location is very convenient, in a lovely neighborhood with markets and restaurants, and we appreciated having the playground across the street for our children. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware, and the bedrooms and bathrooms had good quality linens. The living room and dining room areas are also nicely decorated and a lovely place to have family dinners. We would love to return someday!
