If you visit Rome, then this is a must go. Its greatness comes within the local streets, sites and houses. Full of restautants, at your own pick, depending weather you want a local pizza or an international cuisine. Very hospitable people !

You can walk on every little street in the historic centre and you may find beautiful places and interesting buildings or museums at every corner.

In the Centro Storico,you cannot rush for a visit .First there is the Vatican which takes quite a while to full visit after a long waiting line, then you have via della Conciliazione full of souvenirs stores and don't buy at the first one mingle a bit first

Centro Storico shows why Rome is such a great walking city. After it was built in days before mass rapid transportation systems. So here you have within a short walking distance of each other many historic sites. If you venture from Via dei Corso towards the Piazza Navona, you will see a lot of winding narrow cobblestone alleys where it... More

Could spend years exploring the central historic area of Rome. Too much to describe and list. Great to simply wander the narrow streets and see where they take you....churches, fountains, monuments, piazzas,

When people conjure up an image of Rome this area tends to be what they imagine. Lovely historic area with loads of famous sights and buildings.

Beautiful romantic and... More

As I lived there, there is nothing like wandering, getting lost and find your way in a place like centro storico. Definitely a place to go, recommended by the sunset especially.

When in Rome! However don't need to tell you to go here. Over 2000 years of marvellous art, buildings and churches. What more to say, apart from being able to get fantastic ice cream and food! Any visit to Rome will ALWAYS lead you to the centro storico.... otherwise you are not alive!

The unique centro storico of Rome is the ideal place to wander without a map or a destination. You will come upon lively and colorful street markets, fountains, sculptures, Majestic Roman buildings, historic churches, wonderful street cafes and bars, the best gelato in Rome, a vibrant living city. Cobblestone streets, street performers, surprising sites around each corner. Charming restaurants with... More
