Walking Via Giulia

Via Giulia, Rome

Rome’s famous Renaissance street, Via Giulia, is celebrating its 500th anniversary this year. And, the New York Times‘ Elisabeth Rosenthal provides the history and descriptions of the streets’ sites in her article A Stroll in Rome With a Papal Pedigree.

Usually an unharried street, Via Giulia is set to be quite busy this year with classical music concerts and open houses. For more information on the events and Via Giulia’s many churches and palazzi, visit viagiulia500.net (in Italian only at the time of this post).
