Stroll down an impeccable street to join the locals at the atmospheric Trattoria della Barchetta dal 1924. This is high-end Prati on the smart side of the Tiber – yet a 15-minute walk from the bustle and pizzazz of the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon.
Step in to a small reception area on the first floor of a 19th-century palazzo. One large lofty apartment has become two… an intimate, stylish, serene pair of suites with faded ceiling frescoes and enormous French windows. Bed linens are luxurious, kitchens chic, and beautiful floor tiles remain.
Rome’s foodie restaurant scene is growing. Set off on a Prati Food Tour for the best of the city, including the famous Pizzarium. Visit the Borgo Passetto on a summer’s night: a cobbled walkway for the Pope, a safe passage from the Vatican to the Castel Sant’Angelo. Peek into the nearby houses; marvel at St Peter’s dome.
