After walking around and taking the sites we needed to sit and do one of the things we came to Rome to do which was sit in a cafe on a square and watch people go by. Expensive yes but expected of course. It was...More

My family, which I would describe as generally preferring to avoid tourist traps, bit the bullet and chose ambiance over authenticity in eating here. The view of the Piazza was superb and made for a very pleasant dining experience. That being said, prices were notably...More

We had a very enjoyable lunch there after a tour at a museum near by. The food was very satisfying with many options for vegetarians, too. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
