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.

  • I remembered a holiday in Rome and thought that Even though I had come to Rome several times, I had never been here. It is about a 5-minute walk from Piazza Del Popolo. There were chairs on the street, so i sat down and sat down and sat down and the gentleman's uncle came to me next to me. He told me about this area and took me to my son's hairdresser nearby. It is a very good memories. It is a peaceful place where you can see the daily life of Rome without tourists.

  • Small street parallel to the via Del Babuino towards the piazza Del Popolo. Quiet, green street, quite typical of Italy where there are some antique shops.
