Via del Babuino        Map        Useful Addresses        Directions

The apartment is located in the famous Via del Babuino, in the very center of Rome, just a few meters from Spanish Steps. This wonderful location allows you to see most Rome's attractions just by walking from beauty to beauty, without depending on any kind of transportation: in about 5 minutes you are in Via Condotti and Via Frattina, Fontana di Trevi and the Villa Borghese Park, and in ten minutes you can reach Via Veneto and its fashionable cafes and shops. Piazza Navona, the Pantheon and Campo de' Fiori are about 15 minutes walking distance, while you can walk to St. Peter's Basilica and Castel Sant'Angelo in about 20 minutes.

You just have to type the name of an historic address or monument and Rome (e.g. Fontana di Trevi, Rome) in the below map to see how close they are to the apartment.

A little known tip: you can reach the Roman coast and its nice tourist port in about 45 minutes directly by subway. There you can visit the ancient Roman city of Ostia Antica, or practice sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing in public beaches or modern fashionable bathhouses.
