Walk via dei Coronari after 10pm when it is quaint and quiet.
- Many hail this street as one of the most beautiful in Rome. Its name derives from the various little shops that used to sell rosaries, garlands and other sacred objects to the pilgrims who came to Rome in droves, especially at the time of the Jubilee. In this area three different architectural styles coexist: that of the middle ages, in the little lanes, that of the renaissance, in the squares which open out here and there along the street, and finally the typical baroque of the Chiesa della Pace. Evidence of the crowds of pilgrims can be found in the aedicules where the faithful stopped for prayer, the churches and the brotherhoods in the area. Today, Via dei Coronari has become a street full of antique shops and antique dealers and only an echo remains of the world of the pilgrims.
This is the place for a stroll, and most charming for an evening walk after dinner.
