Logistics Of This Walk And Important Notes

The aim of this page is to focus on the logistical aspects and give sufficient information in the form of text and images so that you can get a good idea of what to expect and allocate in terms of time.


The length of this walk is crudely about 2-3 kms or around 1.5 miles, if you walked it without stopping at a brisk pace it would be only around 30 minutes.

However, this is the ancient centre of Rome, where every turn, nearly every building is of interest. The beauty of doing this walk independently is you take it at your own pace.


This walk is very direct but is full of interest. Apart from crossing a couple of busy roads, you are walking most of the way on narrow lanes where vehicles are as good as nonexistent.

If you stopped at every bar, cafe or restaurant along the way you'd probably need a year.


Trastevere is a district famous as a place where both locals and tourists come to eat, but much of this walk from Piazza Navona all the way to Trastevere via Campo Di Fiori are popular as a place to find somewhere to dine in the evening. And, the choice is overwhelming.


Do get a good guide book and do pick up a detailed street map, many of the free street maps given out by hotels are adequate. Probability is that you will be attracted by something just off the route described here and go off at a tangent, all part of the fun of exploring the ancient centre and making your own discoveries.

The Pantheon is the hub from which 4 of our 8 self guided walks connecting the main sights of Rome either end or start from.

With your back to the entrance of the Pantheon, walk through to the back of the square lined with restaurants in front of you (Piazza Della Rotunda).

At the back of the square turn left into the Via Giustiniani and follow it until you cross a minor road (Via Della Dogana Vecchia) and becomes the Via Del Salvatore.


The Via Del Salvatore leads you quickly onto the busy road Corso Del Rinascimento. Take care, using the pedestrian crossing to cross to the other side of the road and turn left down the Corso Del Rinascimento

Take the first turning right about 20 yards along the road, (Corsia Agonale) which leads directly into the vast Piazza Navona.

Piazza Navona - More Details


Once you have finished with the Piazza Navona our exit is from the bottom, southern exit, (the end to the left as you enter Piazza Navona from Corsia Agonale).


The passage (Via Della Cuccagna) that is the middle exit at the south end of Piazza Navona passes the Palazzo Braschi on your right a former palace now a major Rome museum.

The passage almost immediately leads you into a small square (Piazza Di San Pantaleo) and a major road (Corso Vittorio Emanuelle).


Take care to cross over Corso Vittorio Emanuelle using the pedestrian crossing and take the road almost opposite, Via Del Baullari.

The Via Del Baullari in about 100m leads you into the north-west corner of the Campo Di Fiori.


Campo Di Fiori is a bustling market by day and a hub for nightlife in the evening. The food market is geared to the needs of visitors rather than locals but nevertheless its very popular and worthwhile.


When you are ready to leave Campo Di Fiori you're making for the South East corner of the square directly opposite where you entered.


At this corner there is a confusion of options. The passage we want is called Via Dei Giubbanari which heads south east and not the Via Dei Balestrari which heads south-west. The Cinema Farnese stands on the left hand side of our exit of the Campo Di Fiori.


After around just 75m down the Via Dei Giubbanari look for the narrow alley/passage Via Dell'Arco Dell Monte, just past a small open area on your left.

Looking down Via Dell'Arco Dell Monte you can see the Ponte Sisto bridge in the far distance. So just follow Via Dell'Arco Dell Monte and walk over the pedestrian bridge and the River Tiber.

Once on the opposite side of the bridge, cross over the road to a small square (Piazza Trilussa) and head to the back left side of the square.

Turning left take the second lane from the left (Via Del Moro) and keep going straight along the Via Del Moro until the very end where you turn right directly into Piazza Santa Maria, the main square of this part of Trastevere where perhaps its most popular tourist attraction, the church dominates.


Trastevere towards Pantheon direction

With your back to the main entrance of Santa Maria in Trastevere church make your way to the exit on far left of the piazza in front of you and almost immediately turn left into Piazza di Sant'Apilonia/Via Del Moro.

Then follow Via Del Moro until it exits onto a small piazza opposite Pont Sisto, pictured on this page, our route across the River Tiber.


Taking care crossing the busy road onto the bridge you will find a road directly opposite the exit to the bridge. Take the road that goes straight ahead, not to the left, this is the Via Dei Pettinari which becomes Via Dell'Arco Dell Monte.


When you come to the T junction in about 300m with Via Dei Giubbanari turn left and follow Via Dei Giubbanari for about 150m into Campo Di Fiori.

Campo Di Fiori is a bustling market by day and a hub for nightlife in the evening. The food market is geared to the needs of visitors rather than locals but nevertheless its very popular and worthwhile.


When you are ready to leave Campo Di Fiori you're making for the north west corner of the square, directly opposite where you entered. Take the Via Del Baullari that exits the northern side of the square about 30m before the extreme north western corner.

The Via Del Baullari leads you in about 100m to a main road, the Corso Vittorio Emanuelle. Take care using the crossing to go directly opposite to the small square (Piazza Di San Pantaleo). The passage to the right leading off the square is the Via Della Cuccagna which takes you north through the southern entrance to Piazza Navona about 100m away.


Once you have finished with the Piazza Navona our exit is the one mid-way up the Piazza on the right (eastern) called Corsia Agonale. This leads immediately onto a major road, (Corso Del Rinascimento) where you turn left. Cross the road using the crossing about 20m up the road that leads you directly into the narrow Via Del Salvatore. Just keep going straight over a minor road and our way becomes the Via Giustiniani which brings us to the Pantheon, the end of our walk.
