Top 20 Regola, Rome vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
With its tightly woven tangle of cobbled streets and caramel coloured palazzos, Regola is the picture-perfect Rome of legend, albeit with more selfie sticks. You'll find the odd princess and ancient artist still in residence, but most of your neighbours in the high ceiling apartments will be fellow tourists, as Roman landlords make the most of the international quest for La Dolce Vita and Eat, Pray, Love validated pasta-fever. Every narrow street leads to another beautiful vista, and it's advisable to stay on your feet – partly for the views, partly because public transport hasn't really made it as far as the city centre. Take a stroll under Michelangelo's bridge on Via Giulia, possibly Rome's most beautiful street, admire the Baroque lasciviousness of Carracci's frescos inside Palazzo Farnese and have a restorative aperitivo at Il Gochetto on Via di Monserrato, a wine bar favoured by the best dressed Romans.
