La Pace del Cervellois located in the heart of Rome, just a short walk from the Colosseum and the main points of historical and artistic interest in the capital.
After a long walk, refresh yourselves with lunch, dinner or a drink in La Pace del Cervello!
The Colosseum is the true symbol of Rome, representing two thousand years of history carved in stone. A piece of eternity whose unmistakable outline towers over the Forum, silhouetted against the sky in all the emotion of a glorious past.
The beating heart of Ancient Rome whose rhythm seems to continue. Emperors, scientists, generals, nobles and commoners alike have tread along this very ground. Not to be missed is a stroll along Via dei Fori Imperiali illuminated by night.
Each year, thousands of people from around the world make their pilgrimage to the tomb of St. Peter, the first pope in history. Even if it is the smallest state in the world, Vatican City is one of the largest "reserves" of works of art and architecture in existence. Some of the greatest artists and architects of all time have worked on its buildings, including Michelangelo, Bernini, Raphael and Bramante. Not to be missed are St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Museums, the Vatican Gardens and the Sacred Caves, where it is possible to stop to pray by the grave of Blessed Pope John Paul II, among others.
Campo de' Fiori
A historical and colourful market by day, Campo de' Fiori is transformed into the nerve centre of nightlife by evening. The square, swarming with people wandering among the fruit and vegetable stalls each morning, opens its doors to dining and entertainment each night.
Per secoli Campo de’ Fiori è stato il principale palcoscenico delle esecuzioni pubbliche. Tra queste, è passata alla storia, nel 1600, quella di Giordano Bruno, la cui statua domina il centro della piazza.
Da non perdere, nelle immediate vicinanze, le storiche vie con botteghe tradizionali che ancora oggi portano il nome degli artigiani che un tempo vi lavoravano, come Via dei Baullari, Via dei Cappellari o via Via dei Giubbonari.
Fontanone del Gianicolo
Constructed between 1610 and 1614 by architects Giovanni Fontana (1540-1614), Flaminio Ponzio (1560-1613) and sculptor Ippolito Buzzi (1562-1634), it is known as the "Gianicolo Fountain" and dominates a large terrace overlooking the city.
The fountain consists of five large arches flanked by columns and a large attic chamber with dedicatory inscriptions. For the decorative elements, white and polychrome marble was used, having been stripped from the Roman Forum and Temple of Minerva in the Forum of Nerva, while the columns in red and grey granite once formed part of the old Constantinian St. Peter's Basilica.
Tempietto del Bramante
The design of this masterpiece by Bramante dates back to 1502, after the building had been ordered by the Spanish royal family in fulfilment of a vow made upon the birth of their first son, Giovanni, who died prematurely in 1497.
The building was erected as a "martyrium" as a reminder of the assumed site of St. Peter's execution. There is an external colonnade resting on a short flight of circular steps, crowned by a balustrade from which rises the dome, which was subject to some modifications in the seventeenth century.
The interior, with a rounded form, houses a statue of the apostle on an altar, made by an unknown artist from the Lombard school of the sixteenth century. Beneath the circular hall is an unadorned crypt, where a plaque on the floor protects the hole that would have been left by St. Peter's cross.
Fontana di Trevi
The thunderous roar of the water precedes the surprise of finding yourself before it after wondering along a maze of tiny streets. Opulent, ostentatious, dazzling, crowded, icon of the Dolce Vita, tossing a coin into the waters is always a pleasing moment.
Legend has it that this square in the shape of a stadium was flooded during summer to provide the people with a cool place of retreat. At its centre, face its eternal "rivals": the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi by Bernini and the Church of Sant'Agnese by Borromini.
Piazza di Spagna
The almost endless steps are beautiful in winter, being adorned with the traditional nativity scene, as well as in the spring when decorated with hundreds of azaleas. The Fontana della Barcaccia is one of the most authentic symbols of the Eternal City.
Monumental and romantic outside, mysterious inside. From a hole in the dome enters intense light, creating amazing effects. The square over which it overlooks is like a parlour from which to enjoy this wonder.
The Sistine Chapel alone would be enough to justify kilometre-long queues of tourists at the ticket office. The Museum's collection of artworks contains masterpieces from the Egyptian period to the Renaissance. It is a must on any visit to Rome.
A concentration of beauty, history and art, in one of the legendary Seven Hills. The steps of Ara Coeli, Michelangelo's perfect square, the statue of Marcus Aurelius, the Museums and a breathtaking view over the city and its Forum. The Capitoline Hill is the seat of the Council of Rome.
Immersed in the greenery of the villa of the same name, it reigns due to its collection, perhaps the most important in the world, in which Bernini and Caravaggio excel. It is located at the end of Via Veneto, the street made famous by Fellini's Dolce Vita and many other films of the '60s. Ultimately, Rome can also be considered as a capital of cinema.
The Trastevere district is the emblem of the Roman spirit. Protected by the Janiculum Hill, it boasts a unique form comprised of cobbled streets, beautiful animated squares, shops, typical local restaurants and splendid houses. An urban setting that invites you to delve into the past. It is no coincidence that the origins of many of Rome's legends and traditions lie here. At any time of day or night, Trastevere is always welcoming, animated and full of life.
San Lorenzo, Roma
The heart of the capital is its neighbourhoods, where locals gather on Sundays to watch the derby and buy fruit from the markets. An exploration through the districts of San Lorenzo, Garbatella or Testaccio allows you to discover the true face of the Eternal City, to learn the "Roman" keywords, without leaving lovers of nightlife disappointed. A stop in an osteria is recommended to indulge in a generous portion of Bucatini alla Amatriciana, Coda alla Vaccinara or Jewish Artichokes, specialities of the charming area of the Roman Ghetto.
Parco Appia Antica
Perhaps many are unaware that Rome is the greenest city in Europe, a record made possible by the incredible endowment of parks, gardens and cultivable areas on the outskirts of the capital, the so-called "Roman countryside". In addition to the parks in the centre, enriched by beautiful buildings such as the Borghese Museum inside the Villa Borghese, there are also a number of natural and archaeological areas of interest are worth a visit in Rome. Amongst these is the Regional Park of Appia Antica, which extends throughout the neighbourhoods of Appio-Latino and Appio Claudio and in the municipalities of Ciampino and Marino, and the coastal Litorale Romano nature reserve which links Rome to Fiumicino and boasts the famous Capocotta beach located therein. In the city centre, there are the parks of Villa Doria Pamphilj (not far from Trastevere), Villa Ada (in the Salario and Trieste quarters) and Villa Torlonia (in the Nomentano district) that are perfect for a picnic or for sunbathing.
Designed to accommodate what should have been the 1942 Universal Exhibition of Rome (EUR), which was cancelled due to World War II, it is an exhibition district completed in the "Italian Rationalism" architectural style. Its monumental buildings and urban layout were created by some of the greatest Italian architects of the twentieth century. Today, prestigious companies and ministries have their base here, yet there are also popular museums, shops and a lake, ensuring that a stroll around the EUR quarter will not disappoint!
Shopping a Roma
Rome is the birthplace of many fashion houses that are today famous in the world of "Made in Italy". To make a purchase in one of the historic premises of the great luxury brands or to discover the delightful artisan shops of the capital, there is nothing better than these arteries of Roman fashion. From Via del Corso to Via dei Condotti, from Campo Marzio to the Spanish Steps and up to Via del Babuino, you are spoiled for choice. If your budget is limited or you simply love markets, do not miss the picturesque stands every Sunday morning at Porta Portese and the stalls of Via Sannio, open daily in the San Giovanni district.
Basilica di San Paolo
In the city that houses the architectural symbol of Christianity - St. Peter's Basilica - the churches are so beautiful (and numerous!) they they alone would merit a trip to explore them. Many people come to Rome on a pilgrimage. The churches are, indeed, a significant part of the architectural heritage of the city. So as not to miss any, you can choose a route between the Seven Churches of Rome ( St. Peter's in the Vatican ; San Paolo outside the walls; San Giovanni in Laterano; San Lorenzo outside the walls; Santa Maria Maggiore; Santa Croce in Gerusalemme; San Sebastiano outside the walls ).
Rome also boasts the largest mosque in Europe, built in the elegant Parioli district.
Musei di Roma
Piazza del Campidoglio, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, Piazza del Popolo, Piazza San Giovanni, Piazza Venezia, Piazza San Pietro, Largo di Torre Argentina, Campo de' Fiori: each of these places contains pages of Rome's history. It is virtually impossible to provide a precise survey of the number of civil and religious buildings, monuments and fountains that each square contains. Getting lost in the historic centre of Rome is the best way to enjoy its extraordinary beauty.
