Renting an apartment with an outdoor terrace is an ideal choice for a stay in Rome. Over the years of traveling in Italy, I’ve been building up my wishlist whenever I see a memorable listing. These are some of the most unique and stunning Airbnbs in Rome with a terrace. I also included two listings from One Fine Stay, a luxury alternative to Airbnb.
You know that scene in Eat Pray Love where Julia Roberts is standing in amazement on the top of Castel Sant’Angelo, looking out onto a sea of Roman rooftops studded with church domes, hair blowing in the wind? That could be you – only every day when you walk out onto your terrace (coffee or Aperol Spritz in hand, you choose) if you rent one of these apartments.

When renting an apartment in Rome or anywhere in Italy, you’ll want to make sure it has AC if you’re visiting in the summer months. Rome can get hot and humid, so you’ll want a cool and refreshing apartment. Elevators aren’t always a given and space is tight. Read more of my tips and what to expect in this post. Apartments listed below start with lowest price and move to larger/more expensive.
