The view is heart-stopping. Guests at our Imperial Vista vacation rental tell us that they keep going to the window to see if they are really looking right at the greatest symbol of Rome: the Coliseum.
The building and the apartment are as nice as can be. The two-and-a-half bedroom rambling layout allows guests to enjoy each other together or separately in different areas. It is so very Italian, with fine pieces of art and thousands of books. The bathrooms and kitchen are very good. The owner, or a member of her family, welcomes you with genuine warmth.
The views are so spectacular that they were even featured in the 2013 Oscar-winning movie La Grande Bellezza – The Great Beauty, directed by Paolo Sorrentino. Several party scenes were filmed on the rooftop terrace of another apartment in the building and have the same great view. The movie is reminiscent of the past great hit La Dolce Vita, with its depiction of a dissolute life-style, lots of parties and aimless lives. It’s a good thing there is a lot more to Italian life and culture!
The location is great, the subway is close, grocery store just around the corner. The charming neighborhood Monti is nearby and, of course, the Coliseum, the Forum, the Palatine Hill and the Domus Aurea.
