Walk in Rome from the Spanish Setps to St. Mary Major

Passing through the Pincio Terrace, the Borghese Park, Via Veneto, Piazza barberini, the quirinale hill and monti district

Enjoy a walk in Rome starting from Piazza di Spagna Metro Stop (that you can reach in 4 stops from “Ottaviano San Pietro” Line A stop which is 50 metres from our accommodation in Rome)  and ends at the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore (one of the nicest Churches in Rome).

Pincio Terrace at night - QuodLibet bed and breakfast

You will be enjoying the magnificent view from the Pincio Terrace, cross the Park of Villa Borghese – the main public park of Rome – up to the Bioparco (the Zoo) and the Borghese Gallery (Museo e Galleria Borghese). Then walk down the hill through Via Veneto (the famous Dolce Vita street) up to the Bernini’s Triton Fountain in Piazza Barberini.

Then take a walk to the Piazza del Quirinale (consider about booking a visit to the Quirinale Palace – now seat of the President of the Italian Republic, once the Royal Palace), than walk down the Quirinale hill passing through Via dei Serpenti in the heart of the Monti District up to the church of Saint Peter in Chain (San Pietro in Vincoli) with the famous Michelangelo’s Mose Statue, then through via Urbana reach Santa Maria Maggiore Basilica and go to catch the Metro back home to “Vittorio” Metro Stop (again on the A line of the metro which brings you back to Ottaviano San Pietro Stop in just 12 minutes).

A walk in Rome to enjoy to discover a few places usually outside the main touristy routes. An opportunity to discover the real Rome and some of its famous beauties.
