House prices in Rome are on a par with other European cities such as Austria but are generally slightly cheaper than London. Most expats choose to rent property in Rome, especially if they are only planning to stay for a short period of time.
Most landlords will require three months rent to be paid when the contract is signed. A selection of properties can be found at:www.realestate-rome.com/
