Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Garbatella has been celebrated by the Financial Times as "Rome’s charming garden suburb with its' brightly coloured streets, secret green spaces and traditional trattorias". It's a hystorical neighbourhood founded in 1920, with small buildings, gardens, public parks and lots of typical restaurants and pizzerias. Very close to the historical centre, it's safe, animated and full of life but not crowded like other historical areas in Rome, such as Trastevere or Campo de' Fiori. Shops are at small walking distance (groceries, pharmacy, banks, gelaterie, coffee bars and restaurants at 2 minutes walking), local farmer's market on weekends at 10 minutes walking distance or 1 subway stop (we have a shopping cart so it's easy to carry home your groceries). We love to walk around and discover hidden corners every time. It's a safe neighbourhood, very typical. All major attractions of the city are reacheable by subway, wich is at 3 minutes walking distance: Colosseo, Circus Maximus and Aventino hill, Santa Maria Maggiore Basilica, the roman Pyramid, Termini station, San Paolo Basilica, Monti district are on our Metro line, while to reach Saint Peter and the Vatican, Trevi fountain, Piazza di Spagna, San Giovanni Basilica, the Opera house, Piazza del Popolo you can easily change to A line in Termini

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Just wander around the neighboorhod and discover it's hidden gems, such as Piazza Benedetto Brin where it all began, Via della Garbatella, Carlotta's fountain, Piazza Damiano Sauli, Piazza di Sant’Eurosia, la Chiesoletta (small church), the Street art that you can find on many buildings (one mural painting can be seen from our terrace). Many typical restaurants are at small walking distance from our home; il Moschino is one of our favourites, since in spring and summer you can eat excellent roman specilties while sitting outside in a lovely spot. La Taverna degli Angeli offers revisited traditional cuisine, if you prefer pizza we suggest Pizzeria Panonto. There are tens of other restaurants we will reccomend if you wish, we can send you our personal suggestions. Garbatella neighborhood is full of special sights, that you can find nowhere else in Rome: as the Finacial Times stated "If you’re romantic by nature, walking into Rome’s Garbatella district will make you feel like you’re in a fairy tale. If you are a history buff, it’s like opening a book with perfectly preserved pages. If architecture and urban development are your passions, you will certainly be satisfied, while gourmands will be delighted at the charming restaurants dotted around this verdant neighbourhood". We will provide a full guide of the neighborhood with our personal suggestions
