- The district of Campo Marzio lies to the right of the Tiber around the street and square of the same name. Its name derives from the fact that the area under the Romans was used primarily for military purposes and because it was linked to an ancient cult of the god Mars. Today Campo Marzio is one of the most densely populated areas of Rome. There are numerous monuments and churches of historical and artistic value in the area: the Ara Pacis, Palazzo Ruspoli, Palazzo Borghese, Santa Maria del Popolo, San Rocco, San Girolamo degli Illirici and many squares that make the area one of the most attractive in Rome.
