The Esquilino district: the evolution of Rome as a capital

A fascinating walk in the little-explored Esquilino district and its recent but rich history: planned as a residential area for the political class of the newly born Italian state in the late XIX Century and currently become the multi-ethnic district of Rome.

Visit a series of historical sites in the neighborhood such as the magnificent basilicas of Santa Maria Maggiore and Santa Prassede.

  • Piazza Vittorio
  • Mercato Esquilino
