Via Giulia
This kilometer-long cobblestoned street was commissioned by Pope Julius and designed by Bramante in the 16th century. Lined with grand palaces and impressive churches along its wide, straight length, it was a seat of Florentine power in Rome centuries ago. Note the vine-covered arch at the Ponte Sisto end: Designed by Michelangelo, this was intended to be a bridge to link the Palazzo Farnese to the Tiber River. Today the street is a destination for antique shoppers.
