Nestled in the northwest hills of Rome, Balduina’s brick-and-mortar residents lead lives of simplicity. Composed of modern apartments whose patios are always open for congenial conversation, what this suburban-feeling neighborhood lacks in ancient ruins it makes up for with contemporary amenities. Situated between the green expanses of an urban park and the foot of Monte Mario’s natural reserve, Balduina provides a quiet respite far-removed from the core of the city.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
