Via Margutta is a quiet street in the heart of Rome, between Piazza del Popolo and Spanish Steps, accessible from Via del Babuino in the ancient Campo Marzio neighborhood also known as "the foreigner's quarter". Mount Pincio is nearby. Via Margutta originally was home to modest craftsmen, workshops and stables, but now hosts many art galleries and fashionable restaurants. After the film Roman Holiday became popular, Via Margutta developed into an exclusive neighborhood, where various famous people lived, such as film director Federico Fellini. From Piazza di Spagna, you can take via del Babuino, turn right on Via Alibert, and Via Margutta will be on the left.

One of the spectacular and typical urban complexes of Baroque Rome. The buildings built on the ruins of the Domitian stadium – of which the square preserves its shape and dimensions – mark its boundary. Festivals, races and jousts took place through the centuries in the square. Since the 17th century until mid-19th century, on Saturdays and Sundays of August the square, at the time with a hollow ground, was partially flooded and naumachias took place here. Today, during the Epiphany, there is a market selling crib figurines, games and sweets.

Via del Corso is a main street in the historical centre of Rome. Today, the Corso is a popular place for the "passeggiata", the evening stroll for the populace to be seen and to see others. It is also an important shopping street for tourists and locals alike. Here you can find the big national and international stores, as well as small shops with great bargains. Without a shadow of doubt chic shopping in Rome is traditionally done in the Tridente neighbourhood.

Castel Sant’Angelo is one of the many, marvellous and unmissable monuments in Rome. Its impressive size and beauty captivate the visitor even before going inside, then once you enter there are numerous marvels to see taking in a history going from the Roman Empire to Renaissance, passing through the history of the Popes. A stunning tour where you can see the secrets, the many rooms, tapestries, armours, the terraces and the beautiful Angel at the top of the mausoleum. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the “passetto”, the tunnel that allowed the Popes to escape from the Vatican through the inside of the fortress. Cost: full ticket 10.00 E. The cost is subject to variation during exhibitions

You will not find any other place in the world that celebrates the ever-mutating and incredible power of water like Rome. The Trevi Fountain is a fantastic work of art that is much more than a mere sculpture. This triumphant example of Baroque art with its soft, natural lines and fantasy creatures embodies movement as the soul of the world. The fountain is a true wonder, a jewel of water and stone that is nestled between the palaces of the historic centre of the city. The light and shade effects on the marble make the wind seem to bellow through the drapes and locks of the statues, agitating the waves, creating an extraordinarily intense and spectacular scene.

One of the most famous square in the world. Spanish Steps welcomes you with its "Barcaccia"sculture (made by Bernini's father) and its high fashon shops. The stair is a perfect photograph set. The Spanish Steps (Italian: Scalinata di Trinità dei Monti) are a set of steps in Rome, Italy, climbing a steep slope between the Piazza di Spagna at the base and Piazza Trinità dei Monti, dominated by the Trinità dei Monti church at the top. The monumental stairway of 135 steps (the slightly elevated drainage system is often mistaken for the first step) was built with French diplomat Étienne Gueffier’s bequeathed funds of 20,000 scudi, in 1723–1725, linking the Bourbon Spanish Embassy, and the Trinità

Shopping
Via Cola di Rienzo is a shopping street which connects Piazza Risorgimento - next to the Basilica of Saint Peter - to Piazza del Popolo in the heart of historic Rome, where locals usually love to do shopping. There is definitely more genuine feeling here. You'll find pretty much everything from cloth stores to supermarkets, cafés, restaurants, a fresh food market (Mercato Rionale), a large department store (Coin Excelsior), high-end stores and banks. The pleasure of walking along this street is window-shopping. An added bonus is that St. Peter's and the Vatican are just a stone's throw away from here.
