Centro Storico (R)

" Highlights like the Pantheon and Piazza Navona mix with the chaos of the historic city center. Great if you love all things urban. "

Tessa Vrijmoed, our local from time to momo Rome

The area surrounding the Pantheon, one of the best-preserved monuments from ancient times, is buzzing with little shops and trattorias. Here narrow streets with artisanal shops lead to Piazza Navona. This bustling square was once the athletic stadium of Emperor Domitian. Another neighborhood attraction is Campo de’ Fiori. A market is held here in the morning, but later it transforms into a place to go out. Piazza Mattei, with its Turtle Fountain, leads to the heart of the ghetto: the Jewish district between the Capitol and the Tiber River. It is one of Rome's most authentic neighborhoods. Come here for carciofi alla giudia (fried artichokes).
