We were lucky to be staying in this area and it was beautiful. Everything was easy to find from this part of Rome, including great bars & restaurants. Not to mention fashion shops - both expensive & very good prices, and delicious ice cream!

No charge. It is an area of Roma not an attraction with an entrance fee.

There are areas for high end shopping (I'm not a big traveling shopper however... I saw them while walking around) Nice boutiques around the Spanish Steps and Trevi fountain.
