24,712 reviews
Home to some of the world’s most iconic paintings, the Vatican Museums attract huge crowds. Save yourself hours of waiting by booking this skip-the-line tour of the Sistine Chapel, Raphael’s Rooms, and St. Peter’s Basilica (when the option is selected) in Rome. Early morning and evening tour options mean you can explore the complex during far less crowded time slots. Upgrade to a small-group tour limited to 10 people for a more personalized experience.

The Coppedé District, which takes its name from its architect, Gino Coppedé, is a small treasure chest of Art Nouveau wonders, designed around the 1920s. It is a place that you do not expect to find in Rome! This little enchanted corner seems to come out of a fairy tale. You never stop discovering new delightful extravagant details. This complex of 26 buildings and 17 small villas is gathered around Piazza Mincio and the Fontana delle Rane (the Fountain of the Frogs), where, it is said, in 1965 the Beatles immersed themselves after an evening spent at the Piper, a famous dance hall not far away. There is a lot of greenery, few cars, silence, order and cleanliness. After passing the arch with the magnificent wrought iron chandelier, we found ourselves in Piazza Mincio where there is the Fountain of the Frogs, closed for restoration, a beautiful fairy house, then the embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco and two other splendid palaces whose name we don't remember. Many architectural styles mixed with harmony, originality and art that add to the wonders of a more distant past !! Recommended.

The chances are you probably won't find Quartiere Coppede in many Rome tourist guides, mainly because this quirky neighbourhood is well off the beaten track. We came across Quartiere Coppede quite by accident on a Rome - 'Hidden Gems' website. There is no metro station nearby, However trams 3 and 19 both go to Quartiere Coppede. You'll need to get out at the 'Buenos Aires' stop. We took the 19 tram from Lepento, our journey took around 30 minutes, but for me this is the best way to see Rome's different neighbourhoods, and with a flat fare of one euro fifty cents, it's well worth it. As we approached the vast buildings designed by the Florentine architect Gino Coppede , the layout reminded me a lot of Portmeirion in north Wales, it was almost like entering a bizarre architectural theme park, no two buildings looked the same. It simply took your breath away. The chandelier under the arch of the main building was magical, as was the spider motif above the entrance of what I call the Spider Building. On another large house there are some beautiful murals painted onto the exterior. Sadly the renowned 'Frog Fountain' was being renovated during our visit and was covered up. You'll only need about an hour to walk around this cluster of wonderful houses. I can highly recommend the 'Sesto' coffee shop on Piazza Buenos Aires, they serve great cappuccino and croissants and is conveniently located right opposite the tram stop.

My wife and I had visited the must-see sights and was looking for the not so often mentioned places. Quartiere Coppedé is certainly that : unique, peaceful and so beautiful. The architecture takes your breath away. The small quarter just opens up and takes you in. If you haven’t been there. Don’t miss out seeing that We went by rental bikes around the neighborhood. Definitely the best way. Tours to Quartiere coppede cost a fortune.

Can't remember where I heard about this place, but the appeal was exaggerated! It is simply four elaborately adorned apartment/office buildings on the corner. That's it. They sure do look nice, but again, it's just four buildings. You'll spend more time getting there than gawking the architecture. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit.

I’m a bit of an architectural buff and seek out art-deco or art-nouveau neighborhoods when I travel. I was delighted to find this cluster of architectural gems in Rome. I would highly recommend this ont your list of sights if you want something contrasting and away from the tourist crowds.
