What Will You Do

At the time of the Grand Tour it was considered the north gate of the city, where the carriages that carried foreigners to the hotels in the center passed. Now it is indicated as the vertex of a triangle of streets well known as the Trident (via Margutta, via del Babuino, and via di Ripetta) that you will visit.

The street was built on the route of an ancient Roman road dating back to 29 BC, ie at the time of the construction of the Mausoleum of Augustus.

Built by Augustus in 29 BC after his victories in Egypt, with the purpose of to host the ashes of his family. This impressive monument dedicated to the memory of the Emperor underwent various changes over the centuries, from a mausoleum to a fortress, then a theater, and finally a foundry for the horse of Victor Emmanuel II at the Vittoriano.

At the beginning it was only the back of the buildings of Via del Babuino. An unknown artist opened a first atelier, and from that moment the stables and shacks were replaced by shops of artists, especially foreigners, who made it their representative neighborhood and residence in Rome. One of all: Picasso. Today via Margutta is considered one of the most elegant and sophisticated streets in the city.

For the shopaholic, we could not fail to offer a walk through the most famous street names of Italian fashion, such as Via Condotti, Via del Babuino, and Via Frattina.

This elegant walk could only end in one of the symbols of Rome. Depicted in many images and videos, with its renewed staircase of Trinità dei Monti, the Barcaccia fountain, the "Botticelle" - the typical carriages for a romantic walk - and the embassy of Spain, which gives its name to the square.
