San Giovanni area

Hello all,

I plan to rent an apartment in San Giovanni area. Can you tell me if this area is centrally located and within walking distance to the major sites. Is it safe?

Thank you very much,

Maria

It's a safe area and is close to the colosseum and forum areas. You'll not be in the city center but this is a nice area to stay.

hi,

San Giovanni area is nice no worries! you've got Subway, flea market(via sannio) San Giovanni in LAterano just in a walking ditance while to reach main major sites u need a short ride by subway or bus/tram!

if u find cheap rent u might even look close to RE DI ROMA metro station.. is just one stop further than San Giovanni ..as safe as that!

It's very safe. My wife and I stayed in that area for 8 days this past December and felt very comfortable walking around, even late at night. As dbabe mentions, it is very close to the Colosseum, as well as a couple of Metro Stations - we were about equidistant between the Colosseo Station on the B line and the Manzoni station on the A line, and used both stations frequently. It is a very walkable area with many shops and restaurants.

It's safe, but unless you want to spend more than 20 min walking to sites, you need to take public transport which is good in that area. I have styed in the nearby Celio area that is closer to the colosseum than San Giovanini.

San giovanni itself is the green stat in gthe .lower right on this map

Zoom out and you will see the Pantheon (violet donut) and Piazza Navona (green horseman). You can see the metro stop on the map whihc is on Metro A. You can connect to Termini, Trevi Foutain area (Barberini), Spanish step (Spagna), Piazza del Popolo, and Vatican Musesum (Ottaviano) usintg this subway line. Metro A is the orange line on this maqp

Bus 81 goes from San Giovanni to Piazza Venezia,

and Piazza Navona and the Pantheon

The area that is the mostly centrally located where you can the walk to the greateest number of sites is the area defined by Piazza Navona, Pantheon, and Campo Fiori.

Thank you all for a quick reply. This is great information. I may do a bit more research for

Piazza Navona, Pantheon, and Campo Fiori accommodation for our trip in early October.

Hi,

I will need to hang around this area before I can check into my hotel and I have about 3hours to kill. I will be visiting Basilica di San Giovanni but that will possibly take 1-1.5hour. Is there anything interesting that I can check out in this area without walking to far off? Will the flea market be open on a Sunday/Monday, from what time to what time?

Thank you

Sjessh
