Lovely architectural extravaganza
Sep 2020 • Friends
The Coppedé District, which takes its name from its architect, Gino Coppedé, is a small treasure chest of Art Nouveau wonders, designed around the 1920s.
It is a place that you do not expect to find in Rome!
This little enchanted corner seems to come out of a fairy tale. You never stop discovering new delightful extravagant details.
This complex of 26 buildings and 17 small villas is gathered around Piazza Mincio and the Fontana delle Rane (the Fountain of the Frogs), where, it is said, in 1965 the Beatles immersed themselves after an evening spent at the Piper, a famous dance hall not far away.
There is a lot of greenery, few cars, silence, order and cleanliness.
After passing the arch with the magnificent wrought iron chandelier, we found ourselves in Piazza Mincio where there is the Fountain of the Frogs, closed for restoration, a beautiful fairy house, then the embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco and two other splendid palaces whose name we don't remember.
Many architectural styles mixed with harmony, originality and art that add to the wonders of a more distant past !!

One of Rome's best kept secrets!
Mar 2020
The chances are you probably won't find Quartiere Coppede in many Rome tourist guides, mainly because this quirky neighbourhood is well off the beaten track. We came across Quartiere Coppede quite by accident on a Rome - 'Hidden Gems' website. There is no metro station nearby, However trams 3 and 19 both go to Quartiere Coppede. You'll need to get out at the 'Buenos Aires' stop. We took the 19 tram from Lepento, our journey took around 30 minutes, but for me this is the best way to see Rome's different neighbourhoods, and with a flat fare of one euro fifty cents, it's well worth it.

As we approached the vast buildings designed by the Florentine architect Gino Coppede , the layout reminded me a lot of Portmeirion in north Wales, it was almost like entering a bizarre architectural theme park, no two buildings looked the same. It simply took your breath away. The chandelier under the arch of the main building was magical, as was the spider motif above the entrance of what I call the Spider Building. On another large house there are some beautiful murals painted onto the exterior. Sadly the renowned 'Frog Fountain' was being renovated during our visit and was covered up.
You'll only need about an hour to walk around this cluster of wonderful houses. I can highly recommend the 'Sesto' coffee shop on Piazza Buenos Aires, they serve great cappuccino and croissants and is conveniently located right opposite the tram stop.

Unique atmosphere in a unique place
Dec 2019 • Couples
My wife and I had visited the must-see sights and was looking for the not so often mentioned places.
Quartiere Coppedé is certainly that : unique, peaceful and so beautiful. The architecture takes your breath away. The small quarter just opens up and takes you in.

If you haven’t been there. Don’t miss out seeing that

We went by rental bikes around the neighborhood. Definitely the best way.
Tours to Quartiere coppede cost a fortune.

It's not a neighbourhood, it's four buildings at an intersection.
Oct 2019
Can't remember where I heard about this place, but the appeal was exaggerated! It is simply four elaborately adorned apartment/office buildings on the corner. That's it. They sure do look nice, but again, it's just four buildings. You'll spend more time getting there than gawking the architecture. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit.

Architectural gem
Oct 2019
I’m a bit of an architectural buff and seek out art-deco or art-nouveau neighborhoods when I travel. I was delighted to find this cluster of architectural gems in Rome. I would highly recommend this ont your list of sights if you want something contrasting and away from the tourist crowds.

Just a place to stroll in peace and quiet
Sep 2019
The streets and attractions in Rome are packed with people. Every place you visit has tourists elbow to elbow so getting away to a peaceful place with beautiful architecture was delightful.
Quartiere Coppedè is a fairy-tale-like neighborhood in Rome and is different from anything else I have ever seen. The best place to start exploring is by entering Quartiere Coppedè at the corner of Via Dora and Via Tagliamento.
Well worth the peace and quiet.

Like entering a theme park
Aug 2019 • Family
This is a collection of beautiful houses with small piazzas and water fountains spread out among several streets in a quiet neighbourhood. They were built in the early years of last century and each house was designed individually and looks different. Arts or architecture students may be able to trace individual design to classic, medieval, baroque or even Greek origin. The outer walls are well decorated with small sculptures or other ornaments. Visitors seem to have stepped into a theme park. The most famous water fountain here is the Fountain of Frogs. It is a pity that it was under repairs during our visit. The houses are now used as consulates, businesses or residential purpose. The area is not pedestrianised but traffic is light and there are no crowds. Visitors can have a good time admiring these beauties. Given the many big attractions in Rome, this perhaps may not be counted as a must-see, but I would strongly recommend it.

Wow, just wow
Sep 2019 • Couples
We have already seen the big sights in Rome and were searching for hidden gems. If you are into architecture, this is a must see. It's northeast of the center of Rome. We got a taxi and intended to stay only 1 hour. We ended up spending over 2. It's 40 buildings done by a Florentine architect in a art nouveau, renaissance, classical, baroque mish mash of styles that you could imagine as a set at euro Disney or some kind of theme park.
It is a combination of consulates, businesses, and private residences. Nothing else in the way of things to see or restaurants in the area. Just a fun photo stop!

The architecture around the neighbourhood is beautiful and so fairytale like that I was mesmerised. It was definitely something worth seeing as it took you into a fairy land. I am glad that I went.

Magical! Only four stars because it's strictly an outdoor perambulation
Jun 2019 • Family
Oh, this beautiful, whimsical little gem a bit east of the Borghese Gardens! I have wanted to go for years. Again, not a first-timers excursion, because it's kind of a pain to get to and from and not really near anything. If I were to live in Rome, I'd hold out for an apartment in Quartiere Coppedè!
