EUR

Work all day and rest at night in this business-heavy south Roman neighborhood.

The EUR's commercial design reflects the aesthetic of a long-gone Fascist regime, and it’s easy to be intimidated by the severe buildings that loom above its tree-lined streets and rushing businessfolk. Don't be fooled by the EUR's austere appearance. A productive buzz emanates beneath the angular shadows of its clean-lined edifices and a playful nature pulses through its park spaces. Enjoy the day in a business suit and enjoy the evening on a bench along the water.
