ROME NOMENTANO: SPEND LESS, DO MORE

Welcome to Nomentano

The Nomentano district is just 4 kilometres from Rome airport and is therefore a great place to stay if you have limited time in the city. That being noted it is a great area to experience Rome ‘like a local’ in terms of dining experiences and the more frequented tourist traps. While some residents you meet may not be fluent in English, they are friendly and will generally go out of their way to assist and engage with you.

Travelling with family?

Then join the now famous worldwide trend at Escape Room Roma for a memorable experience. You are sure to have fun working out how to escape from one of the many situations offered in a room where solving puzzles and using strange objects is your key to safety.

Or if you are looking for something quirky, stop by Quartiere Coppede which could be mistaken for being considered a fantasy land. By entering through an enormous archway you will find a quiet piazza and ornate architecture. Be sure to take your camera to make the most of some of the great photo opportunities this unique area provides.

When in Rome…

Do as the Romans do as the saying goes. Mingle with the locals in an evening at one of the many bars in the neighbourhood before strolling through the city during the evening enjoying the temperate climate and evening atmosphere. And be sure to follow that trend by eating where the Romans do too. There are a number of popular eateries in the area and there is possibly no better place to start than Pizza al Taglio.
