A Guide to Rome: Ancient Rome Accommodation Then and Now

a guide to romeAncient Rome Accommodation were naturally not as nice as todays, however if  back then one could meet the expense of it there were some great options, for example the domus (in this instance, a house, like a mansion).

However for the majority of Rome apartments (or the back of houses or on the bottom floor shops) were most of the affordable alternatives, making Rome the 1st urban, flat based people. The Rome apartments were frequently in buildings labeled as insulae. A few Rome flats were buildings 7-8 stories high. Lodgment houses were diversoria, in which citizens (hospites or diversitores) stayed in cellae ‘rooms’.

Usually, insula is regarded as a synonym for Roman condo building, even though occasionally it can referred to the Rome flats themselves called tabernae. The specific apartments in the insula were known to as cenacula (sg. cenaculum) at least in Imperial registers referred to as the Regionaries.
