In Regola, history is more integrated than celebrated. Its Renaissance-era buildings nestle shyly among modern apartment complexes while its twisted medieval streets open onto broad ancient plazas. Once a completely industrial neighborhood, Regola now houses an economically diverse population that keeps its small craftsman shops, out-of-the-way produce markets, and remaining factories buzzing.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
