(180+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
Via Margutta is a narrow street in the centre of Rome, near Piazza del Popolo, accessible from Via del Babuino in the ancient Campo Marzio neighborhood also known as "the foreigner's quarter". Mount Pincio is nearby. Via Margutta originally was home to modest craftsmen, workshops and stables, but now hosts many art galleries and fashionable restaurants.After the film Roman Holiday became popular, Via Margutta developed into an exclusive neighborhood, where various famous people lived, such as film director Federico Fellini. From the north the area can be reached from Via Cassia or Flaminia, passing then through Piazzale Flaminio, and through the city door in the wall that leads to Piazza del Popolo. From this point one walks several metres to the left of Flaminio Obelisk towards Via del Babuino, and on the left there is an alley that leads to Via Margutta.From Piazza di Spagna, one can take via del Babbuino, turn right on via Albert, and via Margutta will be on the left.Etymology and historyThe name probably originates from the word "Marisgutta", meaning "Sea Drop", a gentle euphemism for a dirty stream that came down from the hill of the villa of the Pincii, used like a natural Roman Cloaca. Via Margutta was behind the palaces of Via del Babuino (Babboon road), where warehouses and stables were found.

  • Small downtown street, in the Campus Martius. Parallel to via del Babbuino, in the years of Sweet life saw illustrious names, among those who have lived, such as Fellini and Anna Magnani. Preserves all its charm, even today.

  • Tripadvisor's friends learned about this road. Not listed in guidebooks as a "must" If you got time must walk this alley. Smells Rome. Smells neighborhood!

  • In my opinion the reputation exceeds reality, the road is very central and pretty, but nothing more, interesting for the presence of shops and stands of painters, but to do only being in the area. In the evening is perhaps more fascinating than during the day.
