Despite its location right in front of the Spanish Steps, Rome's icon and a paramount international attraction, Via delle Carrozze passes unnoticed to tourist crowds. The street is nested in fact between mannerly palazzi, where motor circulation is not allowed (the pedestrian sidewalks close it on both ends), and the characteristic Roman carriages ("carrozze") frequently park at its beginning, nearly hiding it. Quiet and sophisticated, the street introduces you into a peculiar dimension, as if it were separate from all the other surrounding streets.

The beginning of Via delle Carrozze from the Spanish Steps square: elegant "Signori" and "Signore" (ladies and gentlemen) strolling and window-shopping.

Cosy and colorful, the street is attended by a kaleidoscopic variety of people. Elegant and haughty Signori and Signore of the Roman upper class, and joyful, curious tourists who turn up nearly by mistake, have the upper hand. Yet you also find gentlemen strolling with their dogs, fine Roman ladies stretching their legs as they ride their bike, young pennyless lovers happily walking hand in hand, and the inevitable few poor immigrants innocently trying to sell their kitch copies of Italian label designer bags.

"Dolci & Doni" (Sweets and Gifts) a sophisticated cafe

The shops, the cafes, and the restaurants are distinctive features of this street. We recommend "Giggi" at the very beginning of the street, at n. 53-54 (tel. 066794213), a simple restaurant yet with good cuisine and affordable prices, offering a free dessert to the guests staying in the Anita apartment if they have their full lunch at the restaurant. Also "Toto' alle Carrozze" at no. 10 (tel. 066785558) is a valid alternative.

DRB, this boutique offers discounts to the Anita apartment guests
