Quartiere Coppedè Tours
Read MoreShow Less
The enchanting little neighborhood of Quartiere Coppedè is unknown to most visitors and often considered Rome’s answer to Barcelona’s whimsical masterpieces by Gaudì. A grouping of fountains and villas built in an eclectic array of architectural styles, this fairytale spot in suburban Rome is a must-see.
When creating this unusual neighborhood between 1913 and 1927s, the artist and architect Gino Coppedè used elements of art deco, liberty, and art nouveau architecture. Located far enough off the beaten path to be virtually free of tourists, Quartiere Coppedè is popular among locals, who often gather around the Fountain of the Frogs (Fontana delle Rane) in the central Piazza Mincio. A walk down the palm-lined streets past the well-manicured gardens, towering sculptures, and unique buildings is a lighthearted break from more traditional (and crowded) sights in Rome like the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Pantheon.
Quartiere Coppedè is a 15-minute walk from Villa Borghese park. You can visit part of a private tour of Rome's hidden neighborhoods, including Testaccio or Trastevere, or combine it with a tour of nearby Villa Torlonia, Benito Mussolini’s former home.
Things to Know Before You Go
- Quartiere Coppedè is great for architecture and photography buffs, especially those who appreciate the strange, offbeat beauty.
- Walking tours of Rome's neighborhoods require a significant amount of time on your feet, so wear comfortable shoes, a hat, and sunscreen.
- The neighborhood is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers.
- The entrance to the neighborhood, which is marked by an impressive arch and wrought-iron chandelier, is located on Via Tagliamento.
How to Get There
Quartiere Coppedè is located between Piazza Buenos Aires, Via Tagliamento, and Viale Regina Margherita in the Quartiere Trieste on the border of the wealthy Parioli neighborhood. It’s accessible by bus via the Piazza Buenos Aires stop; if you’re traveling on foot, head northeast from Villa Borghese and walk about 10 minutes through residential Rome.
When to Get There
Italy's capital city can be very crowded with visitors in summer, so to enjoy its quiet neighborhoods and hidden sights, plan a visit in spring or fall.
