Location of the British School at Rome (BSR), and nearby attractions


Italy’s National Gallery of Modern Art is a stone’s throw south from the BSR. The Villa Giulia, famous for its Etruscan treasures, is close by to the west. The Zoological gardens and Biopark are adjacent to the east. The Borghese Museum and Gallery is a pleasant walk across the Borghese Gardens (once the vineyard of Scipione Borghese, cardinal nephew of Pope Paul V). The Villa Medici on the Pincian Hill, in the south-west corner of the Gardens, gives marvellous views of Rome. The Porta Pinciana leads into Via Vittorio Veneto.

The tram (T) provides ready access to other parts of Rome, as does the Metro (M). From Flaminio, on Metro Linea A, Spagna (Spanish Steps) is one stop east and Repubblica (Diocletian’s Baths) two further. St Peter’s and the Vatican Museums are two stops to the west across the Tiber.
