An amazing experience as you walk and feel the area unfold around you, there is so much to see and visit that it is almost overload. Every turn shows you a different piece of history. Don't rush from one site to another, give yourself time to sit and digest and plan your next visit.

This is a beautiful clean (except for all the cigarette butts all over just like the rest of Rome). The restaurants and stores are great. Of course some of the major attractions are here so be prepared to see a lot. This is a must-see area of Rome

I do recommend seeing Coliseum, Pantheon, and Vatican City. But please do not forget to book all the visits before. If not you will send half of the day in the line.

Nice to walk around and discover the narrow cobbled streets. We found a great little tratoria for lunch. Nice and peaceful compared the the busy boulevards but a shame about the trash and rubbish scattered everywhere.

Walking around the historical centre of Rome with all the monuments, the piazzas and the palazzi is a really unique experience that everyone has to have at one point of their life. Very sad it's so dirty, though! Real shame!

I want to return here someday soon. My time in Rome was very short and I was only able to see the high lights.

This is like almost center to everything good inside Rome. These streets lead you to almost all the good places around, all the famous and must visit sites around. Apart from being close to all the monuments, there are a whole lot of restaurants and cafes around. Some are pricey while other not so much. Anyhow you get to experience... More

wonderful area but if you intend to do the Clloseum or Vatican museum make sure you book your tickets on line before you go and you can walk almost right intoi both without queueing.

i loved its cobbled alleys and streets. This part of the town is in way to almost everything spectacular with Rome. Apart from good crowd and atmosphere, this is also the best place for you go shopping or dining as well. If for nothing then strolling through these alleys is fun in itself. Just stay away from the vendors who... More

This is the perfect place put away the guide book and simply wander around letting yourself get lost and soaking up the atmosphere. It is a bit like the gothic quarter in barcelona but larger and with more history than you can take in. Our favourite bit was the market and piazzas around Fiori, especially the pizza and cakes at...

Staying in Colonna

Neighborhood Profile
Colonna
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very center of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping center, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
