This street connects Piazza dell’Orologio, whose name comes from the clock placed on the tower of the Filippini convent built by Borromini, to Piazza del Pasquino, one of the famous “talking statues” of Rome. Via del Governo Vecchio is a really characteristic street a few steps away rom Piazza Navona and Campo De’ Fiori, a place not-to-be-missed because it keeps many features of the Eternal City: history, shopping, traditional Roman cuisine.
There are many clothing stores, even vintage ones, where to look for the most trendy clothes, accessories and shoes. A true paradise for all shopping addicts! But there is something more. Here you can find unique places, such as Altroquando, an artisan bookshop where you can also taste beers; Caffè Novecento, with its particular atmosphere, where you can start your day with a good cappuccino and a croissant; or CamBiovita, a pastry shop which offers organic products also suitable for vegetarians and vegans. For those who want to have lunch and dinner, they can choose from several restaurants and pizzerias. In this street you can also find historic buildings and small shops, that give it that so peculiar look. It’s the ideal place to have a walk.
Via del Governo Vecchio is a place to be discovered and appreciated in all its different aspects, perhaps before taking lots of pictures at the famous (and beautiful) Piazza Navona.
Rome is full of hidden gems that help keep the charm of past times untouched, such as Via dei Coronari or Passetto del Biscione, which are located in the same area.
