History and everyday life happily co-exist in the Regola district, it’s sort of an open air museum that’s fun and fascination in the same time. Isn’t that amazing? For example, guess where the Arenula street and square got their names from? Ancient Romans were walking these streets with very different goals than you would. Listen to the story about the riders of triga (cart with three horses) who used to train here and try to picture Ancient Rome with the help of your private guide. An exciting mix of history and modern times, right?
Regola district takes pride in a fusion of Renaissance architecture and contemporary apartments & restaurants. It’s famous for leather and suede tanners who used deer skin to make clothes in the Middle ages. This is how the symbol of the district became a deer. Many streets in this district got their names after the local business activities that took place here. For example, Via dei Cappellari was named after the hat - makers, Via dei Baullari - the case-makers, Giubbonari - the dress-makers or Vaccinari the fur-makers. No one knows this place better than locals who have lived there their whole life. Your local host could even be from one of those families. How awesome is that?
