I love to stroll the prettiest street in Rome, Via Margutta, which runs parallel to Via del Babuino, between Piazza del Popolo and Piazza di Spagna. It’s not just pretty, but also has a unique energy that draws from its artistic history.
The little Madonnella on Via Margutta is always beautifully maintained.
There is a particularly cute fountain that celebrates the street’s heritage as a home to numerous artists over the years. There are artists’s stools and easels, theater masks, a compass…
Near the fountain, keep an eye out for the little sign that reads, “Il Marmoraro,” the marble shop.
The gentleman who has run the place all these years will be busy working away. He has numerous little marble plaques ready to go.
And for as little as 15 euros, you can design your own little marble sign: a custom memento of your visit to the Eternal City.
