ROME TOR DI QUINTO: SPEND LESS, DO MORE

Welcome to Tor Di Quinto

Located in the far north of Rome, Tor di Quinto is considered a peripheral region on the outskirts of the main tourist areas. It is mostly recognised for its churches, bridges and military barracks. For this reason it is an interesting place to stay if you would like to experience an authentic view of the day to day lifestyles of Romans, and it is serviced by a regional Tor di Quinto train station which provides a convenient mode of transport to get to the heart of the city and explore the more touristy areas.

So start your tour on a free walking tour of the area

Walk over some of the bridges in the area such as Ponte Flaminio, Ponte Milvio and of course Ponte Tor di Quinto on your way to the barracks Salvo D’Acquisto at via Frederico Caprilli. Also along the way take a look at some of the notable churches in the area which include the Church of Santa Maria Addolorata on Via Flaminia and the Church of San Gaetano on Via Tuscania.

And there are plenty of things to do in the area which surrounds the station

You won’t have to look too far to find a great way to spend your day in the area. Join a guided walking tour of the extended area which commence at a location just 2.3 kilometres from the station. Hosted by an experienced and knowledgeable art and history guide, there are a range of tours to choose from so check the website to find one that suits your interest.

One option that has become increasingly popular worldwide is going to an ‘Escape Room’ and with the introduction of Escape Room Roma you are in a convenient location to attend one located approximately 3 kilometres away from Tor di Quinto. You will start by being locked in a room where you will be required to solve puzzles and decipher clues in order to make your way our within a limited amount of time.

In the area during the festive season?

Then why not partake in some traditional winter fun at the ice skating rink? While Rome is not usually associated with ice skating due to its relatively mild winter season there is indeed an Olympic sized, covered Ice Park Village located right here in Tor di Quinto. It’s the largest of its kind in Rome and a great way to spend the day, especially if you are travelling with family and afterwards you can enjoy a hot chocolate in the café on site to warm yourself up. There is even a area for children complete with a cinema and a piano bar for adults to relax and unwind.

If you are looking for a great local restaurant…

Some of the best options in the area include Ruderi Steakhouse Fishack where you can find an authentic Italian meal in an al fresco setting, particularly popular with local residents after 9pm, or the hidden gem Casale Tor di Quinto which serves pizza, pasta and desserts in a cozy atmosphere.
