This part of the "Tridente" area running roughly from Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps) to Piazza del Popolo is a terrific, pedestrian-friendly area. Over the last few years, sidewalks have been expanded and improved, and traffic is severely limited. The window shopping is great, with many high-end shops, art galleries, antique shops, and souvenir places, and with a number of... More

The street's name derives from the statue that the licals calledBabuino for its ugly outlook. Now it is converted into the fountain and it is located opposite the cafe- former workshop of the sculptor Canova. The statue is "talking" as well as some other statues in Rome. What does it mean? It means that when local people is unhappy with... More

This street starts at piazza del Popolo and ends at the piazza di Spagna, at the feet of the Spanish steps.It is a wonderful shopping street, somewhat calmer than via del Corso. Again, multiple churches, restaurants and cafes border the street, but the major attraction is the high end shops and boutiques. It becomes noisier and busier as you approach... More

Nice place to come and spend lots of money or to stroll through and look at the shops. Many high end clothing stores and a few antique stores here and there.

This street leads to the piazza del popolo, and is slightly less crowded than other commercial arteries. Nice shops.

This road leading from Piazza del Popolo is now home to antique shops and expensive boutiques. The street ends at Piazza Spagna. Via Babuino, Condotti, della Croce and delle Carrozzi is where one finds the world famous designer stores. Via Babuino is also home to the All Saints Church,the official Anglican church of Rome.

...there is nothing but one great store after another and many of them are upscale designers houses. There are also regular stores where you can get sandals, snacks and souvenirs though all along this road.

Via del Babuino is a high-end shopping street, with stores like Chanel -- great for window shopping! It runs from Piazza del Spagna to Piazza del Popolo and is part of the "Trident," the three streets meeting in a point at Piazza del Popolo. Along the way, visit the statue of Babuino (the Baboon), one of Rome's "talking statues," in... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
