Rome: Magnifico

Timeless View - Classic Luxury

  • Name: Magnifico
  • Sleeps: 3
  • Bedrooms: 2
  • Bathrooms: 2
  • Price: €1490/week, low season, 5 nts min
So close to the Coliseum you can almost touch it!

Lounge on the expansive terrace while the icon of Rome, the Coliseum, changes with time of day, season and weather. The Coliseum views are stunning.

Location

Perched on the Colle Oppio, one of the Seven Hills of Rome, this apartment overlooks the Roman Coliseum, as close as it is possible to live. In less than five minutes, you can walk to famous St. Peter in Chains home of Michelangelo`s Moses, Santa Maria Maggiore, Nero`s Golden House (Domus Aurea), the Roman Forum, the Arch of Constantine, the Coliseum and the charming village of Monti within in the city.

In the heart of the Monti district, you`ll discover a wonderful part of Rome. It isn`t as famous as other areas, yet is right in the center of the Eternal City with many of the famous sights within walking distance. It is characteristically Roman, one of the most ancient neighborhoods in the city. History echoes with views of the Coliseum, the Roman Forum just a few minutes by foot. 2000 years ago this was the subura, the working class area of ancient Rome where Julius Cesar grew up. A number of the most important churches in Rome are nearby: St. John Lateran, St. Peter in Chains, St. Mary Major. This is also the neighborhood where the secrets of nuclear physics were first discovered by theRagazzi of Via Panisperna. The "ragazzi" researched at one of the faculties of Sapienza - the University of Rome founded in 1303. Traditionally a neighborhood of craftsmen, you will find old crafts and modern arts and crafts side by side. Monti has gentrified over the last decade so there is a wealth of restaurants, beautiful shops with fine items of all kinds. Some guests find this more fun to explore than jostling with the crowds around the Spanish Steps.

Monti is regularly featured as an interesting neighborhood in the press: Conde Nast Traveler 2014, Rome`s New Scene: The Most Happening Neighborhoods; National Geographic Traveler`s "Rome`s Hottest `Hood" 2013; The New York Times 2011 In Rome, Monti Is a Quiet Treasure, The New York Times 2006 In Rome, a Place for Romans

Picturesque, the Monti streets appear in many movies, such as To Rome with Love. 

The neighborhood has become very desirable to Romans because it experiences less tourist traffic than other areas. Guests enjoy living like Romans in the heart of the Eternal City.

Exterior

The building delights in its spectacular location, inviting in light and reveling in the views available in many directions. Built in the 1960s and has a cool, marble lobby and modern elevator. The residents include distinguished actors, politicians and industrialists. A doorman during business hours provides security and will gladly help you as he can with directions; he speaks some English.

Interior

The sweep of the living room is enhance by the long windows onto the terrace and the long white sofas. Cool and clean, it is filled with museum-quality art. Beautiful antique side pieces balance the modern layout and furnishings.

The glory of Magnifico is the long terrace, about 200 square feet with a direct view of the Roman Coliseum and the Arch of Constantine. So close, you are practically inside! Lined with gardener-tended plants and flowers, there is room on the terrace for dining and lounging while you watch the light change on the view of a lifetime. An awning is in two parts and can shade you from the sun or the rain.

The living room has an L-shaped sofa backed by antiqued glass. One wing of the sofa overlooks the terrace and has a Coliseum view. A glass dining table for six adjoins the living room. Next to the living room is a tiny "den" for reading and watching TV.  Fine Persian carpets are arrayed across the parquet floor.

The master suite has a moderate sized bedroom with ample closets and a French door onto the terrace bringing in light and the scents and colors of the garden on the terrace. The bed is queen-sized, mattress on strapped frame, the usual in Italy.

Beyond the den is the kitchen in its pretty melanzana, eggplant-colored tiles. There is a large refrigerator with freezer, gas stove top and oven, microwave and electric coffee maker.

A kitchen balcony connects the kitchen with the small bedroom. There is a modern washing machine with drying racks out there. Few Italians have clothes dryers; you put your clothes on the drying racks to dry.

 

Bedrooms

The master suite has a moderate sized bedroom with ample closets and a French door onto the terrace bringing in light and the scents and colors of the garden on the terrace. The bed is queen-sized, mattress on strapped frame, the usual in Italy.

The second bedroom is fine for one person. It is small and simply furnished. Cabinets above the bed for storage, no closet. There is a flat-screen television in this room. This bedroom gets some traffic noise from below, light sleepers take note.

 

Bathrooms

The master bath Large step-in shower with rain as well as handheld showers, toilet, sink, bidet.

There is a very small half-bathroom with sink, toilet and bidet between the kitchen and second bedroom.

Our Review

Breathtaking view. While taking photos, we found ourselves frequently going out onto the terrace to appreciate how the changing light affected the wonderful view of the Coliseum. We wonder if Monet would have been inspired as he was in his cycle of paintings of the Cathedral at Rouen.

  • The second bedroom is small, with a high cabinet above the bed, no closet. Light sleepers take note as you can hear the traffic below.
  • The master bedroom is placed facing away from all traffic, so is quiet.
  • The second bathroom is a half-bath and small.
  • The apartment is beautiful and the view is wonderful but if someone in your party is not going to be able to overlook a difficult door to the patio, lack of telephone and some missing serving pieces in the kitchen, then Magnifico might not meet your needs. But if you want a spectacular view and terrace it is a wonderful choice.

Our Guest Reviews

We've been coming back here for 7 years
Sep 2018

We love this apartment. It is our home in Rome. We love the neighborhood, the apartment, the management team and the fabulous view of the Colosseo. We'll be back next year and hopefully for many years to come.
[Thank you Jonathan, we look forward to your next visit! The Italy Perfect Team]

Magnifico
Jun 2018

Magnifico lives up to its name. The accommodations were very comfortable. We very much enjoyed the covered balcony, its view of the colosseum area, and the breezes that moderated the high humidity. We also appreciated and used the air conditioning during this unseasonable warm time. After several weeks travelling in northern Italy, the in-unit laundry was one of the most welcoming aspects of this rental. The apartment was modern and clean. It has great views in all directions. The location was near the “Colosseo” metro station, yet far enough away to be quiet at night. We bought 7-day passes and got good use of them on Rome’s Metro and bus transportation systems. The library shelf full of Rome guide books was an unexpected plus.

Information on the Italy Perfect blog helped us find our way around Rome. We started our stay with the “Welcome to Rome” multimedia program that we might not have known about except for the blog article. We visited a number of great Gelato spots, and went back for a second good dinner and great desert a local restaurant “Ostaria da Nerone”. Among all the sights to see, the highlight of this our second trip to Rome, for us, was the Borghese Gallery. The proximity to St Pietro Vincoli with its Michelangelo statue of Moses was another bonus.

Check-in and check-out at the apartment went smoothly. Beatrice was helpful and thorough. However, although we were well prepared for the 65 Euro advance utility fee, and we knew that there would be additional charges, we weren’t prepared for the total of 84 Euro’s that was expected upon check-in. Italy is suffering some economic pain, and the lack of debris cleanup on the upper level walkway to via Cavour led us to avoid that route after our first day.

Loved Magnifico
Jun 2018

We spent 5 nights at Magnifico and really enjoyed our stay. I haven't stayed in that neighborhood before and, although it is not my favorite part of Rome, it was a good location for touring. The view of the Coliseum from the balcony was amazing. The Monti neighborhood has lots of restaurants and shops and is, apparently, a hip part of town. We found that most of the other sights were about a 15-25 minute walk away so perhaps a location closer to the Borghese Garden would have been a bit more convenient. we love walking so the distance was actually appreciated.

The apartment is well set up with a very nice new bathroom, very efficient air conditioning and everything in good working order.

I would suggest that a map with recommended neighborhood restaurants be included in the binder at the apartment as it is difficult to know where restaurants are when just looking at addresses. With so many restaurants nearby the task of picking just one was daunting!

Beatrice greeted us at the apartment and gave us a thorough understanding of how everything worked and she also met us 15 minutes before our car arrived at the end of our stay to make sure we did not have any problems with the car service.

All in all it was a nice stay and it was fun to get to know a new neighborhood.

[So glad you enjoyed the apartment and found the pleasures of Monti. Rome is so small that you can walk to all the sights. Some might say that the Borghese Gardens are not convenient to the Coliseum;-) Our restaurant list is indexed by neighborhood. The Italy Perfect Team]

Loved it
May 2018

Very fine apartment, Everything clean and well maintained. The view is wonderful and the terrace enjoyable. Easy walk to many sites and for more distant ones either the subway or taxis were reasonably priced.

Most amazing stay!
Mar 2018

We had the most amazing stay at Magnifico! It completely blew us away. Thank you!

Wonderful Stay
Feb 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed the apartment. It all started with our welcome by the greeter. She completely explained the workings of the apartment and answered all of our questions. What more can be said about an apartment that gives you close up views of the Coliseum and the Palatine Hill from its balcony/deck? But it is also wonderful place, spacious and nicely appointed.

The apartment is in the Monti area, a traditional section of Rome where the Romans go for weekend entertainment. The restaurants are very good and plentiful. One of our favorites was Gli Angeletti in the Piazza della Madonna dei Monti. Ambling the areas' streets was always a pleasure.

If you want to eat in, the Supermercato Elite a few blocks away on Cavour has a great selection of fruit, vegetables, wines and deli products.

For public transportation, the Coliseum B Line stop is only a few hundred feet away as are many bus lines on the Via dei Fori Imperiali.

We're hoping to return next year. It felt like home.

Ciao,

Frank

Excellent Lodging
Dec 2017

This is our second year to stay in Magnifico. The apartment is lovely with an amazing view of the Coliseum from the terrace. The location is very convenient, apartment is spacious for two people, and very clean. We recommend the apartment and plan to continue to book.
[Thank you Carole, we look forward to welcoming you again! The Italy Perfect Team]

Great apartment, great views and location
Nov 2017

Last minute get away with a college girlfriend. Host was responsive and accommodating. Apartment was perfect, and although the second bedroom is quite small, overall it worked fine for us.

I was hesitant that the terrace would be noisy at night but this wasn’t the case. Quiet and clean! We walked everywhere and felt very safe. What a spot! Highly recommended.

Our home in Rome
Oct 2017

We've been coming back to the Magnifico apartment for many years. It is our home in the Eternal city. Watching the Coliseum crowd from the terrace is magical.
The apartment has all the comforts we enjoy and the new bathroom is a great improvement.
We'll be back again next year.
[Thank you Jonathan and Gretchen, we look forward to welcoming you again! The Italy Perfect Team]

We loved our stay!

The apartment was lovely. Of course the view was stunning and the location was very convenient to many restaurants and the grocery store. The interior design was lovely as well. We loved our stay and hope for another one someday soon.
