Clients ask us where they can stay in Rome that is not touristy and where they can enjoy real Italian life. They have heard or know that in the touristy heart of Rome, visitors can be shoulder to shoulder, reminding us of Disneyland Main Street in summer.
If you want to be near the sites and to experience an interesting and pleasant area of Rome without the crowds, we know just the place! Across the river from the Spanish Steps neighborhood, near the Vatican, is Prati, a central neighborhood that Romans love.
The layout is reminiscent of the boulevards of Paris and you find many really interesting and sometimes amusing architecture from the Art Nouveau period. Some of the best shopping in Rome is in this neighborhood: from small designer boutiques, good gourmet food shops and open air bargain stands, to a nice department store and a huge famer’s and flower market for fresh foods. it is all arrayed along and behind the Via Cola di Rienzo’s broad sidewalks and cafes. Italy Perfect’s offerings in Prati are conveniently located, too, near the river so the stroll to the Spanish Steps or Piazza Navona is in the 15 minute range along fascinating streets.
