Your genuine Rome experience
Aurelio is authentic, a relaxed, residential district.
It lives cheek-to-cheek with more famous areas. But it’s more like your down-to-earth neighbour who gets on with life. No fuss. No bother.
Why live here?
Because you’ll get a taste of life alongside the locals. And isn’t that what travelling to move is all about?
**What can I do here?**
It’s not about what you can do in Aurelio; it’s what you can do *near* here.
It’s close to the Vatican and Trastevere. So you’re never far from a Roman ruin, a piece of history, or a bustling bar.
Aurelio is the place to do little, relax, and soak up the atmosphere.
It’s next to Villa Doria Pamphili, Rome’s largest landscaped gardens and park.
Hungry? Have a gourmet Italian experience at the Antico Arco. Then, since you’re next door, head for a night out in Trastevere.
Ristorante Gustosando, close to Cornelia Metro, is also a good bet. The reviews are good, but the risottos are better!
Aurelio is home to the Calepodio Catacombs. They date back to at least the 3rd century.
Two Popes were once interred here: Callixtus I and Julius I.
Ironically, Callixtus had already built a catacomb during his time as Pope. He couldn’t be interred, however. The Emperor had spies placed there, waiting to arrest and murder Christians.
The relics of both Popes – and those of the eponymous Saint Calepodius – were moved to the Basilica Santa Maria in Trastevere in the 1960s. Holy.
