From the Spanish steps to the trevi fountain (warning currently void of water for restoration for some time) this palatial district certainly impresses. Walk around and soak up the atmosphere.

Instead of paying the regular price of 20 euros, with 15 euros more we could skip the line and saved at least 2.5-3 hours on the queue

The center is amazing. With many attractions, bars and restaurants you will find for shure what to do. There are also a lot of people wearing strange clothes or costumes, and you can pay them to do a picture with you.

Centro Storico with all its yellowish colors is a splendid place to be reminded of the history of Rome - from the Spanish steps with Caffé Greco, where you find Hans Christian Andersens drawings and much more to the Jewish quarter where you should try Carciofo di Giuidia.

Rome is one of Europe's most wonderful cities, and if it is a first visit in particular, this is a must.

If you go in Rome, you should find a few hours to see the historical center. Is a beautiful combination of ancient with neoclassic and baroque. I fell in love with Rome, hope Fontana di Trevi will bring me back

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.
