Rome City Guide: 234 Best Travel Tips from Rome Locals

Quartiere Coppedè in Rome

Why locals love it

Quartiere Coppedè is an unbelievable example of the Italian Art Nouveau style of the early 1900s. It’s reminiscent of a movie set with its haunting design and fantastical buildings by the Italian architect Gino Coppedè. Some consider it an outlandish place while others are literally scared to walk inside.

Why you should visit it

One of the main reasons why people are drawn to Quartiere Coppedè is that quite a few film directors have chosen to set their films here. In particular, Dario Argento set two of his films in this district including ‘The Bird With the Crystal Plumage’ and ‘Inferno’. It’s a place horror lovers simply must visit.

Special tip

Take a close look at the little shrine with the Madonna statue – it’s located just before the arch. This is part of "Salario-Trieste" zone.
