Considered the heart of the city’s historic centre, it is a sheer delight to wander aimlessly around this district. A simple stroll here means inevitably finding yourself suddenly in a vast and celebrated bustling piazza or at a romantic or curious corner or indeed facing sumptuous buildings, famed museums or in small churches full of masterpieces, many of which, in fact, house the works of Caravaggio, Michelangelo and Raphael.


This part of Rome is without a shadow of doubt the best known and most visited by tourists, who often head straight for cheerful piazza Navona, with its famed fountains, its street artists and portrait painters; for the Pantheon, another major symbol of Rome together with the Colosseum, and for Campo de Fiori, a multi-coloured and vibrant piazza where youngsters flock to in the evenings for an aperitif or a chat after dinner.
