Parioli is one of Rome's wealthiest residential neighborhoods and is located to the north of the bustling, tourist-crowded city center. It's an area that trades in packed tour buses and ancient ruins for posh, tree-lined streets and elegant residences. Sure, it's farther from Rome's tourist attractions, but it's home to some of Rome's best dining and nightlife. Most people consider staying here during their second or third visits to Rome, after they've gotten the Colosseum tours out of their systems. Just be prepared to take plenty of taxis or stay in the area: Rome's public transportation system is notoriously inadequate.
Many visitors stay between the area's two large parks: Villa Borghese gardens and Villa Ada. However, some of the most regal-looking (and secluded) streets in the neighborhood are to the east of Villa Ada, which will also put guests closer to the Bologna subway station.
