Via di San Gregorio (San Gregorio Street)

"Via di San Gregorio (San Gregorio Street)" submitted by RomeTour Editorial Team and last updated on Sunday 3rd July 2011

This street was laid out over the tract of ancient Via Triumphalis, between Celian hill (Celio) and Palatine Hills. The Palatine hill (Palatino) overlooking the Roman Forum is home to a number of palaces dating from the 1st century AD. Passing the gigantic Arch of Constantine across Via di San Gregorio you will find the "back exit" to the Roman Forum. Its present look was created in the 30's of the 20th century, when the old Via di S.Gregorio, arranged with the trees bordering it in 1835 by Gregory XVI, was amplified and named Via dei Trionfi. Now it bears its previous name of S.Gregorio. The street is 500 meters long and unfortunately represents a busy road with fast traffic disturbing the solemn spirit of this place.
