Favorite street in Rome!

When my daughter and I visited Rome in 2007, we lucked out by staying in a small boutique hotel on Via Margutta (Hotel Forte – http://www.hotelforte.com/en/foto.html). Our hotel was reasonably priced (around the corner from the Spanish Steps), and luckily it was on this quiet, lovely street.  Here is another hotel to consider staying at on the same street – although this one is funky and fun!!
