The districts of Rome.

Find the one with your name on it.

Rome is subdivided into many districts, but the more central you are, the more tourist attractions, museums, shops and nightclubs you’ll have on your doorstep. On a short break? Prioritize districts such as Centro, Trevi, Vaticano and the Ancient City, as these are home to UNESCO World Heritage sights such as the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and the Sistine Chapel. On the other hand, Trastevere has an arty, bohemian feel and meandering cobbled streets, while Testaccio and Pinciano are more peaceful with plenty of green spaces.
