Ever wonder just how far your dollar will go on Airbnb? This is Budget vs. Baller: A series that shows you the budget, mid-range, and baller rental options available presently in some of the world's trendiest cities. Today we're taking it to the The Eternal City.


Studio Apartment by the Colosseum, starting at $109 per night

Does it get any more classically Italian than this? This apartment is free of mass-produced furnishings — perfect for the vintage lover. For example, the Carrara marble sink in the bathroom was previously a 17th century fountain. The rental has a veranda overlooking the building's courtyard and is walking distance to monuments.


Campo de' Fiori Studio Apartment, starting at $162 per night

This space is steeped in history. It's in a 16th century Patrician building with a balcony overlooking the courtyard. Look up to find frescoes and ceiling coffers and there will be no doubt in your mind that you're in Italy.


Stately Five-Bedroom Apartment, starting at $2,029 per night

It's ok, our jaws are on the floor, too. This apartment is like sleeping in a museum — in the best way. Every inch is covered in art. It can accommodate 14 guests and features a grand billiards room, a living room that overlooks a square, and an original ceiling fresco by Cavalier d'Arpino. Plus, a concierge will be at your service 24 hours a day.
