Shopping and Dining: Being in the heart of historic Rome, there are an abundance of restaurants, pizzerie, cafes and shopping. An osteria with outdoor seating is located on the same street and is open for lunch and dinner. A mini-market is in 200 yards with a larger supermarket in 600 yards.
Within Walking Distance: Within a 400 yard walk is the Pantheon or Campo dei Fiori with its daily market of fresh vegetables, fruits and flowers until 1 pm. A half mile walk leads to the Trevi fountain or Castel Sant'Angelo and within three quarters of a mile are the Spanish steps and the shops of Via dei Condotti.
Public Transportation: The closest main train station with service to Milan, Florence and Napoli is the Termini Station, nearly two miles away. A bus stop, 200 yards away, services the train station and a variety of leading attractions.
Not To Be Missed: Cruises along the Tiber River leave daily from the Sant'Angelo dock and pass by Tibertina Island. Visit the remains of Emperor Hadrian's grand estate at Tivoli, just east of Rome. This site is reached via a 30 minute Metro ride on Line B to the Rebibbia station and then a short bus ride from the station to Tivoli.
Beach: The beaches in Ostia are 20 minutes by car. Take the Rome-Lido train from the Piramide Line B underground station. Departs every 20 minutes up to 9 pm.
Open Air Markets: Every Sunday in Porta Portese is the city's largest and best known market. Piazza Navona's Christmas market takes place from mid December to January 6.
