The First Musica

The First Musica

On the western bank of the Tiber River, a stone's throw from the Angel's Castle and Piazza del Popolo, lies the art nouveau district of Prati with its beautiful Piazza Cavour. This prestigious neighborhood, where many Romans live, is ideal for those who want to easily reach the heart of Rome, but at the same time taste the local atmosphere. In the evenings, the terraces of the wine bars and stylish bars offer a cozy atmosphere. Moreover, some of the capital's best restaurants are located in this district. Near the famous "Palazzaccio," the Court of Cassation, is the small-scale and modern hotel The First Musica, an oasis of peace and light, with a rooftop restaurant and a trendy bar that offer stunning views of the Tiber and the domes of the "Eternal City.
