The area
Neighborhood: 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.
How to get there
  • Barberini - Fontana di Trevi • 9 min walk
  • Spagna • 9 min walk

Not on the tourist track. Beautifully decorated and artistic facades. Worth seeking out for a quick view.

The gallery has few signs outside, it is almost passing, behind the Teatro Quirino, although it is not always open, from 12 midnight. But when you find us you will be amazed, a beautiful corner of Rome, to be admired and photographed. It was born as the courtyard of the Sciarra Colonna palace, built in pure liberty style

Too bad there were fences in front of the entrances on both sides, so we couldn't get closer this beauty. Maybe next time :)

We stumbled across this beautiful building as we were walking back to our hotel, the architecture and paintings on the walls are beautiful. Glad we found it.

Actually as a lady who loves shoes. I would have bought half the store at the back of the first floor. Staff were very nice and helpful.

We live in Italy so we were searching for actually looking for Chinese food near the Trevi fountain when we located this building. It's a very worthwhile quick detour from the madness of the fountain. You can make a very nice loop by walking south from Trevi to this building, then proceed through this building to a fun (very touristy but fun anyway) street that leads you back to the fountain. Lots of street vendors, artists, musicians etc, along this 10 minute walk!

What a fascinating building we saw as we walked along the Via del Corso. Prince Maffeo Sciarra Colonna was way ahead of his time when he decided to build a retail galleria in 1870. They were very popular throughout Europe. He spared no expense for its decoration which was painted by Giuseppe Cellini. Richly decorated with beautiful frescoes and ornamentations, it is a work of art in itself – proof that Rome is truly an open-air museum. The walls of the gallery are decorated with illustrations of women: the first row represents women through the stages of life (from youth to married woman) and the second row features depictions of feminine virtues such as loyalty, patience, justice and chastity. Architect Giulio De Angelis designed the galleria that includes a cast iron glassed canopy and elegant designs on of the supporting structures. There are also various coat of arms of the family (Colonna/Barberini), as well as the initials of Maffeo Sciarra on the interior walls. The galleria, however, failed and this was coupled with the overall financial trouble of the Prince. He went broke and had to sell his art collection and, eventually, not only the galleria, but even his family palace. Open until 8:00 PM; try to go in the evening when the galleria is illuminated with a warm and magical glow, making you feel like you have been transported into a different era.

Dropped in here for dinner - reasonably priced and the food and service was excellent. So good in fact that we went there two nights for dinner. And their house red is excellent - good quaffing wine. Highly recommend.
