Regola

A petite enclave of shops, markets, and plazas that celebrates idle chats and long pours.

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.

One of the places where the Eternal City most expresses its authenticity: from early in the morning, where the famous flower and fruit market takes place, until afternoon, when the local and foreign youth are joined together till late at night with the entertainment of pubs, restaurants and “trattorias” of the area."
