Our Rome Apartment






I thought I'd show you some pictures of our AirBnB apartment today that we stayed in during our Rome holiday.
It was the home of a photographer who seemed to do lots of film photography and had heaps of photography books (yay!). You could definitely tell it was a bit of an arty place, which I really liked since it made the apartment feel like home. I could have definitely imagined myself living there - although I might change a few things around I loved the overall feel of the place. It was spacious, light, had a lovely view (I imagine most places do in Rome), and it came with fans. Which came in pretty handy. ;) Plus, even the staircase was looking good (first picture).
But, I can also imagine that Rome might have influenced my opinion of the apartment a bit. I loved Rome, so maybe I just projected that feeling onto the place - at least a little bit.
The apartment was literally right around the corner from the Colosseum, which made it easy to get to, and as I said before (here, here, and here) we ended up walking everywhere.
Anyway, just wanted to give you an insight into our Rome apartment, and hope you do consider staying with AirBnB when you go travelling. It's such an easy, affordable (+ you could get a discount off your first trip if you're signing up for the first time - see link), and nice way to get to know a city.

    1. Aww, thank you so much, Latrina! I know what you mean - I hadn't seen many images of Rome at all before we went, and neither felt like I had heard much about it. That's probably why I was so positively surprised when I got there - It really is a beautiful place. Glad you like the photos! :)

  8. Hey, everything about this apartment looks so beautiful, and all the other Rome pictures anyway. That's why I love AirBnB so much, it's just amazing that you get to live in these pretty, personal, artsy apartments instead of some boring hotel.

  9. That apartment looks fabulous! As you said, it probably also helps that Rome is just so magical. Have never tried Air BnB, this makes me want to give it a go.
