Via Giulia - Rome

The Via Giulia was designed by Bramante for Pope Julius II during the Renaissance. This street is a work of art in its own right with its Renaissance palaces, art galleries and antique showrooms. Of particular note near the Ponte Sisto is the Baroque Mascherone Fountain, which combines antique sculpture with an original composition based on a mask and stone basin. Further along the street is the charming ivy covered Farnese Arch designed by Michelangelo and the sculpted falcon heads on the Palazzo Falconieri, enlarged by Borromini and which is now home to the Hungarian Academy. Near the Victor Emmanuel II Bridge are a number of Renaissance palaces once inhabited by members of the Florentine community in an area which came to be known as the Florentine District.
