Plaza
“PIAZZA NAVONA is probably the most beautiful square of the Eternal City. In this charming square there is a stunning fountain called "Fontana dei Fiumi", representing the four main world rivers as allegories of the four continents. It’s a Bernini's work that needs to be observed from different points of view and it is located in front of Palazzo Pamphilij, where Bernini also worked for some years.”

Monument / Landmark
“You can't miss the Pantheon. The light that, from the large hole in the center of the dome, comes down to illuminate with soft light all the beauty of the interior of this ancient temple is, for me, what makes it one of the most 'beautiful monuments of the city. And then it is in the historical center, easy to find!”

Park
“Wide public park where you can enjoy walking and running far away from the city mood. There are some playground as well and a romantic lake. It was the country residence of a ancient roman nobility family, so you can have an idea about their life style.”

The massive church and the beautifully decorated floor deserve a visit.”

Museum
“A nice walk through a wonderful park (Borghese Gardens) brings you in a few minutes from our home to the Galleria Borghese. Only when you visit one of Rome's fantastic private art collections (there are also Galleria Spada, Galleria Doria Pamphili, Galleria Corsini, etc), you can really imagine where these masterpieces of art really lived and they become much more alive than in any museum!”
