Aurelio

Streetside cafes and public squares pepper Aurelio, the Vatican's next door neighbour.

Although Aurelio is the Vatican's next-door neighbour, many Romans often consider it an outlier neighbourhood because of its removal from the rest of the metropolis. Traditional restaurants and typical shops accomodate the everyday lifestyles of the young families and well-dressed professionals that call Aurelio home. When the neighbourhood's residents return from their evening commutes, you'll most likely find them embracing the evening hours at its street side cafes and public squares.
