“Lovely part of the city”

Ranked #276 of 1,874 things to do in Rome
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Plenty of places to eat, especially in the small lanes running off this street. The areas is worth exploring at any time of the day for shopping, and at night for dinner.

Via del Babuino means "Baboon Street," named after the ugliest of Rome's talking statues, the Baboon. The statue, with a small fountain, is beside the Chiesa di S. Atanasio dei Greci, in Via del Babuino. The statue depicts a reclining Silenus: a half man, half goat, but is is rather decomposed, hence the people found it ugly and called it the baboon, and the name stuck. The street of Via del Babuino is one of the three spokes of the "Trident" leading to Piazza del Popolo. There is terrific high-end shopping, such as Chanel, Armani, Prada, and Tiffany, as well as antique stores. Recently, some newer shops like Tory Burch have opened as well. It's great to window shop while making your way to Piazza del Popolo.

Via del Babuino is a busy little street running from Piazza d'Espagna to Piazza del Popolo. It's always crowded but worth an amble if only to eye the boutiques dotted along its length and sample some of the wine bars and eateries tucked away in the many side streets that snake away and connect it with Via del Corso. It's a great central location for accommodation too.
