Destinations / Europe

Italy’s capital city is made up of 35 quarters and 22 distinct districts. While much of the hubbub is focused on Rome’s historic center, there are plenty of unique and exciting neighborhoods to explore.



The three streets diverging from Piazza del Popolo make up the Tridente neighborhood. This ritzy area boasts lines of designer boutiques, upscale eateries and many of the luxury hotels visitors love. It’s also home to the famed Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps.



Parione is the heart of Rome’s nightlife. It’s home to both Piazza Navona and Campo de’ Fiori where you’ll find some of the most popular bars in the city. There are also numerous boutique shops right alongside famous sculptures like the “Fountain of the Four Rivers.”



Testaccio is a foodie’s paradise. The former slaughterhouse district is where many of the country’s most famous dishes were designed. Now, you can have a true taste of Italy in the popular Testaccio Market or classic Roman pizza at Da Remo. The neighborhood is also home to the Pyramide of Cesta.



Ostiense is where young travelers go to experience Roman counterculture. The mishmash of industrial and historic architecture makes it unique among Rome’s many districts. The walls here are filled with graffiti that has won worldwide recognition, along with a few ancient sculptures like the “Centrale Montemartini.”
