I can't really recommend specific websites, as I do not use apartments. www.venere.com has some apartments listed, and is an entirely reliable site with honest guest reviews (I always use it for my Italian hotels).

I've also seen

recommended on these forums.

Anywhere in the cnetre of Rome would be fine, although Trastevere would be a good choice, imo. It's the Medieval part of Rome but within easy access of the historical 'Roman' centre.

Thousands of people live in central Rome. Unlike some cities, there are no large 'business' areas which are more or less 'dead' after 6pm. So any area in the historical centre (central historical Rome is very compact and very walkable) will be fine.

Yes, many of us like Trastevere a lot, as it is an older part of town (hard to believe, isn't it) with areas of narrow streets backing up the the Janiculum (hill).

However, you need to be careful which part of Trastevere you stay in, as it stretches for a ways down the Tiber on the west side. The north end of Trastevere is literally just across the river from Isola Tiberina (the island in the Tiber) and the ancient center (the Circus Maximus is just a few minutes away on foot); but the south end of Trastevere is quite a hike (two kilometers away).

Of course, Rome has excellent public transportation, and there is a well-known tram (#8 as I recall) that runs up from Trastevere station (at the south end of Trastevere) through the heart of Trastevere on Viale Trastevere (duh) and across the river into center Rome.

Plus, if you want something quite different, you walk to the west out of northern Trastevere up the Janiculum to the fine park up there where you get to see trees and grass and nature, and a great view of Rome (yes, you can take a bus up there, too, it is a rather steep walk in one place).

We stayed at an apartment just south of the Vatican - see my Rome page - but I picked it more for the fact that it had off-street parking and easy access in and out of the city than for local life...although there was certainly that...

Termini

by vincentbuhagiarooooo

I had just arrived from a 7 days stay in Rome and i stayed in Termini area.
From here you can walk to all places of intrest in this fantastic city.
Also me and my wife had made day trips to Tivoli and Castell Candolfo.
The Metro cross center between line A and line B is here to so this makes it easy to any direction.
Enjoy your stay

Travel Tips for Rome

Tazza D'oro

by sniem

Something I always miss when I'm back home is the fantastic cappucino at Tazza d'Oro. Tazza d'Oro is located just a few steps away from the Pantheon and it's really an institution in Rome.
You first go to the cashier and pay what you want then you go to the counter with your "scontrino" and hand it to one of the waiters. There are no tables to sit you just drink your cafe at the counter.

A Roman door

by OrlandoBR

A funny contrast of the old and the new, the different versions of doorbells in this seemingly millenary door near Via del Corso, displaying so clearly the passage of time... isn`t that just the kind of thing we go to Rome for?

Religious and general souvenirs at great prices

by sirgaw about Souvenirs (General)

CASA DEL ROSARIO

Rome is full of souvenir sellers - shops galore and the constant stream of illegal pests selling anything.

It's refreshing to walk into a shop well laid out with friendly staff who hand the customer a metal tray to place their purchases onto. Row upon row of religious memorabilia in 2 rooms - and that's not all. They have a great range of general souvenirs of Rome at prices that seem to be at least 25% better than else where.

Venice to Rome

by JUNLI

I travelled from Venice to Rome by an overnight train on the purpose of saving money, which resulted to be an absolutely awful journey. The reason why I’m feeling so bad is not because of the train itself, the train itself is OK with well equipment, but the local passengers who were very cheeky and dangerous. At that night, some miserable passengers (most of them were tourists) had to stand for the whole night although they had valid tickets, because some shameless local guys occupied their seats. These guys did not even have valid tickets, but kept sitting in the chairs that they had not paid for. Heavily argument continued for the whole night but no tickets owners could get their seats back.

All these disgusting Italian passengers did make me sick. I’m quite sure that the majority Italian are gentle and polite, but I am not going to take Italian overnight train anyway.

A seat of a 8 seats compartment cost me about 30 GBP return, but I did have a seat there, a bit more fortunate than some other tourists. :-)

Nice little place for lunch

by illumina about Due colonne

Nice friendly little restaurant run by a proper Italian mamma. She doesn't speak much English (I don't know about the other wait staff), but the menu is translated into English French and German, so you can just point if you're not comfortable with Italian. The rigatoni with ragu was very good, and my partner's pizza was thoroughly enjoyed.
