Top 20 Salario, Rome vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Chock full of huge parks, interesting architecture and local charm, Salario-Trieste has long been a favourite with professional Romans and students, but up to now its distance from the centre of Rome kept its streets largely free of tourists. With the transformation of a former Peroni brewery into the MACRO modern art museum and the Instagram potential of the Coppedé district - Rome's equivalent of Gaudì's fantastical Park Guëll in Barcelona - the visitors are on their way. While people looking for the big hitters will find themselves a long walk/drive away from their destination, those on the hunt for an authentic view of life in Rome will enjoy Salario-Trieste's low key vibe, well priced restaurants, architectural variety and glut of green space. Best of the parks is Villa Ada, for its expanse of grass, occasional pond and unlikely site of historical interest such as the bomb shelter used by the Savoy family during the Second World War bombings. Make sure to visit Capo Boi for Sardinian specialities such as crispy pane Carasua, sea bass carpaccio and oysters.
