  • through Via Crociferi and through the Galleria Alberto Sordi (also known as the Galleria Colonna) you will arrive in Piazza Colonna.


  • walking through Piazza Montecitorio, you will arrive in Piazza del Pantheon, with the Fountain dating back to 1575.

  • reaching Via di Sant 'Eustachio you have to stop in Piazza Sant' Eustace to taste the best coffee in Rome, of course in the BAR EUSTACHIO.... Here at the corner there is the church dedicated to the saint, the only church throughout Rome where weddings are not celebrated, certainly for "good luck"! In fact, on top of the façade is carved the face of a deer with big horns!! In fact the conversion of Eustachio to Christianity did happened after having a vision of a fiery cross between the antlers of a deer.


  • Church of St. Ivo alla Sapienza, masterfully designed by artist Francesco Borromini in the mid-1600s. This was the home of the University of Rome La Sapienza.


  • not far away, on the corner of Via degli Staderari there is the great basin of the first century. AD.

  • at the end of the same street Staderari left there is the beautiful Fountain of the Books, 1927, by Pietro Lombardi.


  • through Via Rinascimento you arrive in the fantastic Piazza Navona, at the ends of which there are the Fountain of the Moor and the Fountain of Neptune, by Bernini. But certainly the most grandiose work of Bernini, and chosen as the symbol of Baroque art in Rome, is the Fountain of the Four Rivers.
