Lonely Planet review

Striking off west from near Piazza Navona, Via del Governo Vecchio is an atmospheric street full of attractive boutiques, popular eateries and vintage clothes shops. The road, once part of the papal processional route that linked the Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano to St Peter's, acquired its name in 1755 when the pontifical government relocated from Palazzo Nardini at No 39 to Palazzo Madama.

The architect Bramante is thought to have lived at No 123.
