Centro Storico of Rome is magnificient and dazzling! The buildings, the light, the sculptures. It will be amazing to enjoy with a little less people and tourists.

All the historical centre of Rome is important and impressive. The palaces, the churches and the ruins are incredible. Walking along the streets is a wonderful activity itself.

The heart of Rome, featuring cobbled streets, many shops, galleries, restaurants and cafes. The beautiful Pantheon, glorious Piazza Navona as well as other smaller, pictureque piazzas. Wander around for hours and don't worry about getting lost, this only means more surprise discoveries around every corner.

I was here with my two young children and it was a marvellous experience. Just walking, looking into the shop windows, enjoying gelato and enjoying the spectacular beauties at every corner was a truly magical experience.

For tourists looking to be in the cuore (heart) of it all, the best place to be in Rome is in the centro storico. Indeed, the historic center of the city is where a chunk of the Eternal City's main attractions are located. The best part is that most of it can be covered on foot. From taking that postcard...

Piazza Navona is the heartbeat of Rome, The Happening Place, the Pulsebeat...There is always something going on here.This is the centerpiece of Centro Historico and has cafes, ristorantes, small shops and locals as well as tourists lounging about. Marvel at the incredible fountains by Bernini.. Grab a latte, a cold beer or a light meal and then wander off into... More

This place was easily one of the most happening places I saw in Rome. Great energy about it. There are some lovely cafes. There are two beautiful fountains. There is a lovely building, an Obelisk and street performers who keep the fun going. The best part is you can sit down and relax on the ground and see the things... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
