A neighborhood within the historic center, Regola has more than 2,000 years on it and lets you know it. Ancient inscriptions and columns decorate building fronts, while its centerpiece is the Campo de’ Fiori, a large square that transforms into a morning market. The beauty of Regola is its palazzos and small piazze, and its true personality comes from the artisans on its side streets, from bakers and leather crafters to butchers and plumbers.
