Please visit this link for the general presentation of the district within the Piazza Navona quarter where the "Navona Signora Town House" is situated. As you will find in the page, the most important street of the quarter is Via Coronari, famous for its antique dealers and its quality furnishing shops.

In this page we will mention a few more aspects which are peculiar of the streets neighbouring the property.

As soon as you turn from Via della Vetrina into Via dei Coronari, you stumble in the intriguing view of the belfry and of roof of the Church of Santi Celso e Giuliano (right photo) . It is precisely situated in Via Banco di Santo Spirito, and what you see is actually its back. Yet the belfry and the roof, with its onion-like turrets, can only be seen from Piazza San Salvatore in Lauro.

As soon as you walk through the Piazza San Salvatore in Lauro, you reach the Tiber banks, from where you cannot avoid being impressed by the view of Castel Sant'Angelo (right photo).

The imposing medieval castle was built on top of emperor Hadrian's Mausoleum. The peculiar history of the Castel is very visible, as the two structures are simply overlapped, like a layered cake.

The Castel has been a stronghold to defend the Vatican and the Pope throughout the millennia: the Pope could reach it in times of trouble by means of a special elevated passage called "Passetto", perfectly preserved and visible to this day, which joins the formidable high walls of the Castle.
From its summit you can enjoy one of Rome's best panoramic views.



Rome Castel Sant'Angelo seen from the Tiber banks

Leaving history and architecture aside, it is important to mention that the banks of the Tiber, near the Navona Signora Town House, are a very pleasant and relaxing site at all times.

From the retaining walls or embankements you can reach the Tiber shores by means of stairs. As you reach the shores another world appears. Seagulls, ducks, the water gently flowing under the Ponte degli Angeli bridge with its imposing statues of angels, the trees along the shores and the wildlife are renegerating and leisurely. In fact, the banks of the Tiber have always been a site for water sports (rowing, canoeing) and especially for night parties and festicals either in the stands along the shores, or in big barges afloat.

The leisurely life by the Tiber banks of Castel Sant'Angelo was celebrated in the unforgettable film Roman Holiday (1953), in which Joe Bradley (Gregory Peck) and Princess Ann (Audrey Hepburn) fall in love in a dancing party held on a barge by Castel Sant'Angelo.
A furious fight ensues with the investigators instructed to bring Princess Ann back to the tedious royal palace etiquette. In the photos below, you can see Princess Ann smashing a guitar on the head of an investigator (with Castel Sant'Angelo in the background), and the couple dancing.

In the movie, during the fight with the Royal investigators the two lovers fall in the Tiber, and swim ashore.

You can see in the left photo the dwarf with the stairs where they actually swam out of the Tiber in the movie.


In the distance you can see after the Ponte degli Angeli another bridge, the Ponte Duca d'Aosta, leading to St. Peter's, whose dome is visible.

A final note should be mentioned about the widest square in the district, Piazza San Salvatore in Lauro, and the church bearing the same name (right photo). The church is imposing, and it is one of the most visible from any panoramic site in Rome. As the engraving in its facade reminds, it is dedicated to the Piceni, a congregation originated from people of Ascoli Piceno, an Italian town in central Italy.

From a practical point of view, the square in front of the church is the only place in the area where you can park a moped, within specific parking lines.
