Walking through Rome often feels like wandering onto a movie set, but for a deep-dive into the city’s cinematic history, look no further than the area around Via Margutta. This quiet cobbled lane stretches from the Piazza di Spagna to Piazza del Popolo. Legendary filmmaker Federico Fellini lived on Via Margutta, had an office at the nearby Bar Canova, and often used the surrounding streets to shoot his scenes. The road was also immortalized in the film Roman Holiday as the home of Gregory Peck’s character, and countless films have used the nearby Spanish Steps as a backdrop. To immerse yourself fully in the movie set vibe of Via Margutta, sleep next door at the luxury hotels Margutta 19 or Babuino 181, and dine in the beautiful secret garden of EMME Restaurant.
