Just outside the Vatican walls, Prati is a neighbourhood built in a grid form, with wide avenues and elegant buildings. Removed from the historical centre, Prati is a business-area with elegant office-buildings and open plazas. In Prati’s main street, Via Cola di Rienzo, there are high-end shops from Italian and international designers and terraces where you can enjoy a cappuccino, whilst seeing people pass by. If you follow the river you will reach the historical centre. During the summer the river area comes to life as food festivals and bars open on the shores. Prati is filled with great authentic Roman trattorie and Wine bars and pubs where there’s often live music.
Besides the pope himself, the area is inhabited by many lawyers and upper-end families.
Piazza Cavour is a beautiful green plaza where the astonishing building Palazzo di Giustizia that houses the Supreme Court is located.
Live music venues and international and classic roman restaurants are spread throughout the neighborhood.
This elegant neighbourhood is also one of the safest in Rome due to its proximity to the Vatican.
Rome is a crazy and quirky city where you’ll never, ever find yourself bored. This city has it all for adventuring spirits: unique neighbourhoods to be discovered, ruins to explore, gardens and museums to visit.
Studying in Rome, you’ll see a completely different side of the city to the one tourists see. Instead of queueing for hours to see the Colosseum, or the Fontana di Trevi, you’ll go there with your friends at night. Drinking and talking for hours under these spots, you know are memories you’ll never forget.
If you need student rooms in Rome, we have plenty: one could be just for you.
