Via della Conciliazione, Rome

(260+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
Via della Conciliazione is a street in the Rione of Borgo within Rome, Italy. Roughly in length, it connects Saint Peter's Square to the Castel Sant'Angelo on the western bank of the Tiber River. The road was constructed between 1936 and 1950, and it is the primary access route to the Square. In addition to shops, it is bordered by a number of historical and religious buildings - including the Palazzo Torlonia, the Palazzo dei Penitenzieri and the Palazzo dei Convertendi, and the churches of Santa Maria in Traspontina and Santo Spirito in Sassia.Despite being one of the few major thoroughfares in Rome able to cope with a high volume of traffic without congestion, it is the subject of much ire both within the Roman community and among historical scholars due to the circumstances under which it was constructed. The area around the church was rebuilt several times following the various Sacks of Rome, and again after having deteriorated due to the loss of prosperity resulting from the Papacy's relocation to Avignon during the 14th century. Through all of these reconstructions, the area in front of the short courtyard of Saint Peter's Basilica remained a maze of densely packed structures overhanging narrow side-streets and alleyways.

  • You can't describe the beauty and the feelings it arouses the prospect of this magnificent, imposing via ranging between Castel Sant'Angelo and St. Peter's square. Flanked by ancient and noble palaces. Unmissable

  • A beautiful road, always full of faithful going through it to get to St Peter's Basilica

  • The way itself does not say much, but it represents one of the best spots for souvenir photos or panoramics in Rome, because it joins the Tiber with St Peter's square. It's day or night, is to be exploited to see in the distance the dome of the Basilica and enjoy the beauty of Rome.
