The charming Town House Spagna is situated in the very heart of Rome, in Via della Croce, a peaceful typical street that crosses with the famous Via del Corso, few meters away from the Spanish Steps. The location is perfect to walk and explore the historical beauties of the Eternal City and enjoy all the pleasures Rome has to offer: the Town House is located in a lively area, full of shops, museums, galleries, restaurants and bars.
The Town House Spagna is in the so called “Trident area”, which is a remarkable Baroque architectural unit. From the obelisk of the magnificent Piazza del Popolo three streets brench off indicating the pilgrims the most important itineraries: arriving from north Via del Babuino tha leads to Piazza di Spagna, with the church of Trinità dei Monti above the Spanish Steps, and further on to the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. Via di Ripetta, on the right hand, leads to the Tiber’s bank and then, crossing the Ponte Sant’Angelo, directly to St Peter. The central street, between the two twin churches, is Via del Corso that goes straight to Piazza Venezia, seat of the Papal Palace.
Strolling through the streets of the Trident is a beautiful experience, like exploring a kind of open art museum. The number of Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces is impressive: churches, fountains, palaces, museums. The treasures of this area will surprise you! Together with the Trevi Fountain, the marvellous Piazza di Spagna with its 135 steps and the Barcaccia Fountain are for sure the most famous monuments of this area. There are plenty of other beauties to discover, indeed: the Galleria Colonna, the Palazzo Camerale (today Institute for Fine Arts), the Mausoleum of Augustus and the new Ara Pacis Museum by Richard Meier, the Museo del Corso, the Sant’ Anastasio Church, Palazzo Borghese etc. The area where the Town House Spagna is located is a beautiful district and an important cultural point of reference and at the same time one of the centres of the Italian political life: following Via del Corso you will find an elegant square with another obelisk: this is Montecitorio Square, with the the graceful Palazzo Montecitorio, which is the seat of the Parliament of the Italian Republic. At the end of Via del Corso is situated the magnificent Piazza Venezia, another of the biggest squares of Rome, often chosen as a meeting point by tourists, thanks to its position and to its majestic and recognizable monument depicting Vittorio Emanuele II . This monument is the symbol of the unification of Italy in 1870 with Rome as the capital city.
