Of the very few streets beginning from Piazza di Spagna (the square with the Spanish Steps), Via della Croce is perhaps the liveliest, although it is not noisy. The photos you are looking where snapped in January, Rome's coldest month. As you can see, people can't help enjoying themselves outdoors. In the street you find fine grocery stores (missing in the other streets around the Steps), and there is also a little vegetable market at the corner with Via Bocca di Leone ("Lion Mouth Street").

The Austrian restaurant

There are many typical Italian restaurants, which between March and late October prepare outdoor tables. Just for a change, we published the photo of an Austrian restaurant, very cozy inside. As a matter of fact, Austrian towns (Vienna, Salzburg etc.), with their Baroque churches and monuments designed by Italian architects resemble Rome, an additional proof of the Eternal City universal status, as mother of most European towns.

D'Angelo's cafe and confectionery shop

Via della Croce, with its lively and imaginative atmosphere, the irresistible flavour scents of restaurants and pastry shops (like D'Angelo's), its fine boutiques, and its varied, cosmopolitan people will make you feel in the heart of the Eternal city.
