  • This area is a must visit by all visitors to the Eternal City. Whether you're a pilgrim or an ordinary tourist. The West Bank of the Tibra has absorbed all the "charms" of the city center. Many shops, including with Vatican-Christian symbols and souvenirs. Lots of cafes and restaurants. And there are a lot of people, of course. But I really like it here, such a festive "movement." And it's constant here!

  • Great flavors and a much more pleasant atmosphere like a falafel stand than a restaurant but worth every bite! The variety is crazy and each combination shows

  • Is it possible that there is a quaint neighbourhood, of narrow streets and places worthy of being seen, between The Street of the Council, the Vatican and the busy streets of Prati? I was skeptical, but the way of Borgo Pio won me at first glance, coming from Castel Sant'Angelo, giving me that singular impression of being back on the other side of the Tiber, between the alleys that go towards Piazza Navona between churches, palaces decadence nobles and fountains, like the beautiful one that opens in the square halfway up the street. Yet the history of Borgo is all different, all linked to St. Peter: born in the 1500s to be the real city around the Vatican, with all the best Renaissance urban prerogatives including (which is otherwise very rare in Rome) the straight streets. But then the gutting, the horrible Way of The Council and more have teared apart this oase of true Romanesqueness where no one expects it, even something has remained: Borgo Pio, beautiful and characteristic, Borgo Sant'Angelo, immediately next to Via della Conciliation, that follows the famous "passetto", and the less characteristic and more monumental Borgo Santo Spirito, parallel to the street from the opposite side and with a glimpse on the colonnade of St. Peter, as well as a beautiful church as is Holy Spirit in Sassia. A few sleepers with beautiful atmosphere, many locals and religious shops, the beautiful feeling that you have reading the reports of when you arrived at St. Peter's so, without stradoni. But it's not just picturesque: it's a work of Renaissance urbanism, and it's absolutely to be done (and to be found) if you're leaving the Vatican
