San Saba's relaxed pace evidences itself in every detail. From its subtly wider streets to its slightly fancier apartment buildings, this bucolic neighborhood rests easy. It's far from being Rome's sassiest place for a state-of-the-art cocktail or all-night dance party, but it's tough to top when it comes to the simple enjoyment of seeing children riding bicycles and seniors reading their early morning newspaper.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
