San Lorenzo is a bustling district crammed with clubs, restaurants and bars, and together with Trastevere has a reputation for hosting Rome's hipster scene. It's located just southeast of Roma Termini, the city’s main station. Students frequent San Lorenzo to relax and party. But there’s something here for history lovers too, as you can also find the gateway to the Roman catacombs here. One room apartments in this area tend to be cheaper than other areas.
South of Termini is San Giovanni, a hillside district dominated by the gorgeous church of Santa Maria Maggiore. It’s full of history, very diverse, with plenty of Chinese restaurants and the Mercato Esquilino – the best place in town to stock up on fresh fish and vegetables. It’s also one of the best places in Rome to find affordable two bedroom apartments and long term deals.
EUR is a completely different district. It’s an affluent planned residential area within walking distance of the city centre that was designed by Mussolini’s fascist government in the 1930s. It’s also an administrative and business hub. The central location and transport links make it the ideal district for professionals looking for renovated furnished apartments for rent with washing machine and kitchen in Rome. Some of those apartments come with balconies and all bills could be included in the rent.
Prati is a centre of culture and commerce centred around Via Cola di Rienzo, the city’s major shopping street and with several pleasant piazzas. The district also borders Vatican City and is just across the river from the Piazza Navona, an elegant square dating from the 1st century A.D., with a classical fountain, street artists and bars. In Rome apartments for rent long term come at all prices, and Prati is significantly more expensive than other districts.
