Borgo Pio, or more fondly known as 'the Borgo', is the tiny, medieval neighborhood just adjacent to Vatican City. The area was redeveloped in the early Renaissance period for pope and patrician-owned homes, creating today's picturesque enclave. Primarily pedestrian, the Borgo has a continual flow of visitors thanks to its proximity to the Vatican. The intimate Borgo area is a small enclave immediately east of the Vatican. The Tiber River is its eastern border. Important landmarks in the area are the Passetto, the long, above-ground passageway connecting the Vatican to Castel Sant'Angelo (another excellent point of reference), and Palazzo della Giustizia, the Italian higher court building, at Piazza Cavour. As stated above, the Vatican is the Borgo's western border, noted by the large dome of St. Peter's Cathedral. To its north is Prati, a lovely, turn-of-the-century residential neighbourhood. To its south is Trastevere, a vivacious hangout with Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere as its centre. Borgo Pio is easily connected to the centre of Rome, as it just a bridge's crossing away. Borgo Pio may be more difficult for getting to know your neighbours, as the area is replete with tourists during daylight hours. However, there are several local shops and small businesses, especially on the eastern side of the area. Borgo Pio has limited shopping options, and most would suggest heading to Prati's Via Cola di Rienzo where you will find food markets, clothing and interior stores, cafés and home goods. However, keep your eyes open as you meander Borgo Pio's tiny streets, as there are several quaint boutiques from bicycles to haberdashery. For souvenir shoppers, around and immediately south of Via della Concilizione are several of Rome's best souvenir shops, both religious and secular. Borgo Pio is in a very convenient location, easily linked to all areas by foot, bus or metro. From Borgo, you can easily walk to the Vatican, Piazza del Popolo and the historic centre. ATAC, Rome's public transportation system, has extensive bus, tram and metro connections. Buses 23, 81, 280, 271, 490, 492 connect to the Stadium, Ponte Milvio, Monte Mario, Centre, Testaccio, Janiculum, Piazza Venezia, Villa Borghese, and Tiburtina and Termini stations. Bus hubs can be found at Porta Pia/Via della Conciliazione. In addition, you are within walking distance of Piazza Risorgimento, in Prati, with a bus and tram hub. Tram 19 connects to Villa Borghese and Nomentana, with links to Auditorium and San Lorenzo.
